Healthier Treats

We can’t have a whole month dedicated to strategies for Feeding Your Family without also talking about treats. I mean let’s be real. We all need treats now and again. The best part though is we can incorporate treats that aren’t complete sugar-bombs and still offer some health benefits.  Here are some of my family’s favorite treats; next to dark chocolate birthday cake of course!

Steps to a Healthier Kitchen

Last week I discussed my strategies for keeping a well-stocked healthy pantry and fridge. Along with easy go-to meal ideas you can always fall back on when you keep a basic list of healthy foods on hand. Today’s let’s take this conversation further by looking at the kitchen as a whole. We can’t simply focus on the foods we have in our kitchen without also considering the quality of cooking utensils and storage solutions we have available. We are exposed to so many different toxins every day, especially in our house, and the kitchen is often ground zero. Let’s make strides to change that.

Stocking a Healthy Pantry

Last week I shared my go-to strategies for feeding myself and my family of four. One of the most important ways to set yourself up for success is to stock a healthy pantry and fridge. By keeping the unhealthy food out of the house and stocking lots of yummy, healthy options you and your family will be much more likely to succeed in the healthy eating camp. Although we can’t always control what we are exposed to out in the world, we can commit to keeping our home a healthy sanctuary.

Feeding Your Family

Whether you’re cooking for one, two, four, or more if you don’t have a plan it gets really hard to stick to your healthy eating goals. On top of that when you have to juggle different food preferences and the god-forbid “picky eaters” in your family, it can be downright overwhelming. Today I want to share with you my go-to strategies for feeding myself and my family of four. My mantra is and always has been “healthy shouldn’t be hard” and this is true for feeding your family too. Let’s dive in.
