Cabbage, Navy Bean and Carrot Skillet

When working with vegetables sometimes I feel like I need to be overly creative, I often feel like I have to resort to trickery when it comes to sneaking veg into the kids. Fortunately, they have been much less picky when it comes to vegetables and beans because I am so busy that I think they appreciate the effort I put out just to get a wholesome supper on the table. This dish highlights some very humble ingredients, and it is seriously uncomplicated ....more

Chocolate and Maca Root Protein Shake with Fresh Almond Milk

My family loves smoothies, so when I was invited to do a post for Williams-Sonoma’s smoothie week, I couldn’t resist. We make raw kefir smoothies multiple times per week, although we typically enjoy them as a healthy dessert, I also make smoothies for breakfasts and snacks. This recipe is nutrient dense and packed with many of the super food ingredients we all try to sneak into our diets ....more

Homemade Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Making vinegar and other raw ferments at home can seem pretty intimidating at first, but it is honestly really easy to do. Once you get a knack for a few different fermenting methods, you can experiment and make a wide variety of things.

No-Peel, Slow Cooker Applesauce

One of the first pantry staples I stopped buying from the store was applesauce. It may seem a little silly but once you begin making your own, the store purchased sauce just seems gross tasting. It is also a huge waste of grocery money, and this is especially true if you buy organic sauce, which you should… assuming you are buying it ....more

Honeydew-Avocado Salsa

In the past salsa-verde has been a favorite of mine, it’s tangy and great on chicken, eggs and just about everything.

Whole-Wheat Blender Pancakes

Before Lochlann was born I spent weeks packing, freezing and canning meals and mixes that could be used in the early weeks after his arrival. Something we ate A LOT of those first few weeks (aside from some of the less than perfect “healthy organic junk foods” of course) was pancakes. Man-Meat helped out and made a fair share of my Wholesome Every Day ...more

Marinated Summer Vegetable Salad

Summer is just around the corner, and to prepare myself for the coming heat, I have been getting back in the habit of relying on side salads to fill us up. During the hot months I always enjoy fresh, raw, detoxifying salads, in my current EXTRA pregnant state, I find myself really enjoying these veggie packed recipes because they are not only easy to prepare, but they are healthy, wholesome and very light on the stomach. This simple salad is a variation of a very simple Israeli style salad we started eating after our vacation to The Holy Land ....more

Chia Colada Hydration Smoothies (Labor-Aide/Electrolyte Slushies)

Staying hydrated can be a tricky task for just about anyone, in particular it can be a major concern for athletes, children, pregnant or nursing mothers or anyone who has fallen ill. I’m normally not very good about drinking my eight a day, and although typical medical advice says “drink to your thirst,” if you hate drinking water and you never quite feel thirsty, then you don’t drink very much do you? Many people reach for energy drinks or hydration aides, there are so many available that are marketed to suit different lifestyles but most of them are filled with chemicals and sugar ....more
