Vegetable Football Nachos

Tweet Pin It Jon loves football. I love football food.  However, as I’ve started to live a healthier life, I find that standard football fare is a little heavy on the meat and grease for me.  This year I decided to try my hand at some super-veggie nachos. I started with a typical base of […]

How I got my son excited for yogurt!

Tip: Keep All Natural Bread in the Freezer

You Are What You Eat Giveaway Hop

Review of Newman’s Own Organic Treats

Tweet Pin It We want our family to eat healthy foods.  However,  I have to admit it, we all have a taste for sweets too.  For that matter I really enjoy sweets on occasion.  Eating sweets should not have to mean that we have to give up our goals of avoiding high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors […]
