The best Paleo granola

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? Thank you so much for all of your heartfelt comments and emails after yesterday’s family post. I started a giant checklist with your tips and suggestions and am going to start cranking through and researching while we get a referral to a pediatric GI specialist. Even though it breaks my heart that many of you have experienced something similar, it’s also comforting to hear that I’m not alone. Sending giant virtual hugs and gratitude to all of you. <3

With everything going on, it made me even more thankful that I did some planning before P’s birth and pre-wrote a bunch of posts. I wrote 18 posts + snippets of others, which has been a majority of the blog for the past 4 weeks. I still have some left for a crazy/rainy/writer’s block kinda day, but it gave me the chance to take a break and also provide you guys with solid content while I was away. I’ve been easing back into writing and I feel refreshed to be back, especially with the exciting blog events coming up, like Favorite Things giveaways (start next week!), Post Baby Bod (12-week postpartum fitness plan) and Winter Shape Up (January 25).

Yesterday afternoon, Livi and I tried a new “cupcake” recipe. I put cupcake in quotations because you can’t really call them that. Since I’m dairy free for now to see if it helps with P’s reflux, I’ve been scouring dessert options because my sweet tooth is out of control and it turns out everything has milk or butter in it. I am so thankful for the co-op and their selection of lovely baked vegan treats. To quell the beast yesterday afternoon, I found a recipe on Pinterest for Paleo Pumpkin Cupcakes. It was basically pureed bananas, pumpkin and spices, and while I was skeptical, the photos looked appetizing. 

It tasted like baked baby food.

Baking w liv

The only good part: Liv and I sang Christmas carols while we baked, and she thought they were delicious, so that’s all that matters.

So instead of talking about Paleo baking fails, let’s focus on some wins, like this beloved granola.

Pumpkin banana oat blender pancakes

Hi friends.<3 Hope you’re having a wonderful day and enjoyed a great weekend! Who’s stoked for Thanksgiving?! *raises pie fork in the air* The morning of a holiday, I like to have a protein-heavy breakfast. I feel more satisfied, and also prefer enjoying a healthy meal before the avalanche of sweets and heavy foods occurs.  These pumpkin […]

The Crazy Elvis

(grain-free, dairy-free and INSANELY delicious) You guys. I can’t even tell you about this dessert. You just have to look. And see.  And taste. And make any sound effects that you so desire. I first got the idea for this recipe at The Patio on Lamont. It’s one of our favorite spots to meet with […]

Soft and healthy oatmeal peanut butter cookies

Sometimes you just need a cookie. (or four…) I was really hankering for cookies the other night, and since my little sous chef is always willing to help me bake, I thought it would be fun to sneak off to the kitchen to make some cookies.  As far as the cookies go, I’ll let the […]

Pumpkin oatmeal bake

Oh, hi pumpkin. I haven’t seen you since… yesterday. (#obsessed #basic #dontcurrr)   As the weather starts to cool down, I tend to gravitate back towards hot breakfasts. Breakfast cookie dough cereals, smoothies, and chia puddings are usually switched over from breakfast to snacktime fare, and I head back towards egg bakes and hot oatmeal […]

Chef Kyle’s Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great afternoon. It’s been a wonderful week so far: a happy and euphoric blur, snuggling our newest family member as days blend into night. We’re hoping to head home from the hospital later today. Fingers crossed. This week, I have some special posts going up while we’re getting settled. This one is courtesy […]

Harvest Turkey Meatloaf (gluten-free and dairy-free)

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? It has finally cooled down a little bit over here -it’s so pleasant to walk around without huffing and sweating- and I took the dogs for a long walk. Bella is always down, but since it’s taken Caro a while to get the hang of walks, it can be […]

Apple Spice Amazeballs

This is for all of the friends out there who are pumpkin-ed out.  It’s also one of those things where I just put a bunch of ingredients in the food chopper, said a prayer, and hoped it would work out. Thankfully, it did, and they are DELICIOUS.

Pumpkin pie brownies (grain-free, dairy-free)

I’ve created a monster. Quite a few of you have told me that you’ve made these pumpkin bars multiple times already. (Thank you for letting me know if you’ve made them; I love getting your feedback on recipes and anything that’s on the blog!) I’m right there with you. I think we’ve demolished 4 batches […]

Blended Mexican Mocha (dairy-free) + a Fair Trade giveaway

It’s a great day for a giveaway Hi friends! How’s your Monday going?? Hope you’re having a wonderful day. <3 I’ve been looking forward to today’s post because I’m always excited to spread the word about Fair Trade Month and share some awesome goodies with a lucky winner. But first, how about a recipe?? Here’s […]

One-pan chicken with tomatoes, basil and feta

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday! Don’t forget that tomorrow is the last chance to get your lotus tank. All the info is HERE. Yesterday definitely felt more like summer than fall, and more like a weekend than a Wednesday because the Pilot was home. He had a lot of “use or lose” leave, so he took […]

Quick and easy snack bites

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re enjoying the morning. Don’t forget to get your lotus tank; only a few days left to order! The orders are rolling in and I can’t wait to see pics of everyone rocking this gorgeous tank for an awesome cause.  After the midwife appointment yesterday, Liv and I […]
