Homemade Frosting

In our home, we celebrate birthdays with a fun tradition – cupcakes in bed.  We greet the kids in the morning (hopefully we wake them up!) with a cupcake and a candle and presents!  It seems a bit silly to start the day with a treat like a cupcake, but on one day a year – I don’t care.  The … Read More

I drink RAW milk.

Yep.  You read that right.  I drink raw milk.  My milk comes straight from the cow to me.  No middle man really.  The only way my real milk could be fresher is if I were to milk the cow myself.  But, let’s be real here, I don’t have the time for that.

Are you one of the 25.8 million people who suffer from Diabetes?  If so, would you feel comfortable telling your physician that you really enjoy eating at least 10 teaspoons of sugar every day with lunch?  Would your physician approve if you only ate your 10 teaspoons of sugar every few days?  My guess is, NO!  If you are pretty … Read More

Soaked Oatmeal Breakfast

Kelly ListonAll Articles, Breakfast, Recipes31 Comments

I love having a hearty oatmeal for breakfast in the morning.  The warm and gooey texture, topped with whatever toppings I am craving in the morning is a delightful breakfast treat.  When I was a child, my favorite oatmeal was one that was in a little package – Maple and Brown Sugar.  Considering both “Maple” and “Brown Sugar” don’t appear … Read More

Healthy Granola Bar

I love the convenience of a homemade granola bar.  It can be wrapped up and thrown in a bag, it is is fully customizable, and they can be made for pennies.  I can get 16 to 20 granola bars per batch (depending on how thick I cut them), so they cost a fraction of store-bought versions.  Even more appealing is … Read More

If you happen to be a newbie in the Real Foods arena, one of the simplest things you can do is to make your own condiments.  Personally, I started with Mayonnaise.  By mastering the basics (homemade broth, dressings, sauces, marinades, condiments, etc) you set a great foundation from which to build your healthy kitchen. When I cleaned out our kitchen … Read More

Who Likes Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Kelly ListonAll Articles, Desserts, Recipes11 Comments

Better yet – who likes soft, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies?  I do!!  I really, really do.  Ever since I ditched the Tollhouse recipe, I have been searching for a version that tasted like Tollhouse, but had better ingredients.  Above all, it had to be soft.  I didn’t want a cardboard cookie that tasted like wheat. Here is my answer, … Read More
