Last night was the first time since sometime in March that we were all home before 8 pm. It was so nice to have all four of us sitting down around the table to eat together. We know it isn’t going to happen again for a few weeks but it was so nice to be together for one meal.
Now, I am real, so as you can see in the picture below, I pulled out our finest paper plates last night so no one had to do dishes. After dinner the only clean up was the pizza stone, pizza cutter, and the cheese grater. I am all for easy dinners with super simple clean up!
When I first presented this meal to my family they all thought I was crazy. Egg, that is not scrambled, on a pizza? Ewww. But, then they tasted it. I over cooked the egg…
It’s incredible how bad most “food” is for you. I’ve been reading labels the last couple days and have been reminded of this a lot. I also find it interesting that 75% of Americans believe they eat healthy, yet obesity rates are at an all time high. Why does this disconnect exist? I guess it comes down to how people define healthy. The nutritionist might define healthy as eating 6 servings of veggies per day, no refined sugars, and drinking plenty of water. Others might define healthy eating as only eating McDonald’s 3 times per week instead of 6 times.
I’m not exactly sure what eating healthy is, but I do know that an incredibly small percentage of people do it; present company included. You would think we would all take much better care of our only “house”.
I am very impressed with this product I bought at a health store recently. Yay…finally, a gluten-free bread that I can actually enjoy, thought I would share for people following gluten free eating programmes❤Enjoy its delicious!
Another recipe from me! This one is super-easy, quick and a hit with the kids (and my husband!). Dare I say it, I think that these biscuit bars taste alot like Hobnobs, minus the chocolate (a much-loved shop-bought sweet oat biscuit for those of you outside of the UK).
This recipe is based on one that I saw on the fabulous You Tube channel forJessBeautician- she makes delicious vegan meals and snacks. I highly recommend you check out her channel if you like plant-based food. These biscuit bars are dairy-free and can be gluten-free too (if you ensure you use gluten-free oats).
As some of you may know, I follow theOvercoming Multiple Sclerosis programmeto try and keep myself as healthy as possible. As this recommends that MSers avoid coconut products (due to its high saturated fat content), I decided to omit the coconut oil that…
Originally posted on Dinosaurs, Donkeys and MS: This weekend me and Dizzy have been making brownies! I love these as they are healthy (also dairy, gluten and refined sugar free!) and taste just like normal brownies. Dizzy seemed to love them…
My oven broke a few years ago, and our circumstances prevented the purchase of a new one. I luckily have inherited my Grandma’s stove/oven, and my husband installed it last night. As I was cleaning it, I couldn’t help but remember all of the family meals she prepared for us.
At 99 years old, she cooked for us all for the last time a year and a half ago.
I think my Mom said it best when she said,”…the smells she produced!! It’s called love!” My Grandma passed away just over a year ago, and we all miss her deeply. I’ve also inherited a few of her recipes; I just hope I can do them justice on her stove!
I had mentioned to a friend on social media that I would be cooking chicken stew tonight for my son, but he left today to go on a cruise. Tonight I…
