Organic Kid Friendly Recipes

I really enjoy cooking for my family. My husband always says he will eat whatever I cook for him. Unfortunately, my three year old isn’t quite as willing to try my home cooking.

Returning to Christmas Past: Serving a Healthy Feast

Barley and Organic Caramelized Vegetable Salad

Barley and Organic Caramelized Vegetable Salad

When I was in Mamavation Bootcamp 18, I discovered alternative grains like quinoa, amaranth, and barley. These grains are low-glycemic (which means it they won’t spike your blood sugar) and gluten free. I love to incorporate them into dishes for added whole grains, a unique texture, and a more filling meal. I did just that with…

Organic Green Breakfast Smoothie

Organic Green Breakfast Smoothie

I’m pretty new to the whole “green smoothie” trend. I went into it thinking a green smoothie was just like a fruit smoothie, only you add greens. Well, it’s not quite the same.

Organic BLT Dogs

Organic BLT Hot Dogs

When I lived in Hollywood, many of us ended our nights by heading straight for bacon wrapped hot dogs served in the seedy carts that wheeled along Hollywood Boulevard. These were affectionately called “danger dogs” because you knew there was a certain risk involved in the street food. People were willing to accept that risk for a flavorful late night…

Organic Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich

This chicken salad sandwich got rave reviews from both my husband and toddler. They gobbled it right up for lunch. Thankfully, this Organic Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich is a healthier version of the classic chicken salad sandwich, as I swapped out the mayo for organic avocado and yogurt. It still has the creaminess and tanginess…
