Top 5 Companies that are changing society

Top 5 Companies Changing Society One of my favorite things about being a food blogger is having the chance to work with brands that I already love. Stonyfield has always been one of those companies. Besides the taste and quality of ingredients another thing I love is getting to know the companies better. A little over a year ago I was able to go on a farm tour for Stonyfield and see the behind the scenes are their mission to create great quality products all while helping to “save the earth”! So today when they announced that they were part …

Peanut Butter and Banana Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Peanut Butter and Banana Steel-Cut Oatmeal

My youngest son is obsessed with oatmeal. It is always his favorite food on the questionaries that they do at school. Maple & Brown Sugar is his fav! The only problem with oatmeal each morning is that it takes a little longer on busy before school mornings. He is also my child who is very particular! If something is too hot, too cold, too spicy, or too sweet he will have nothing to do with it! When I discovered this oatmeal I was surprised and ecstatic! And I love steel cut oats more then any other type of oatmeal! So …

Acai Smoothie Bowl and a {GIVEAWAY!}

A few months ago I was approached by Stonyfield Organics to do a collaboration with PrAna. I had just had my baby girl and knew that it would be a chance to give myself a goal of something that I would like to fit in come June when my baby would be 4 months old. I have always loved the quality of their clothing but had never purchased a pair of jeans from them. As a mom of a new baby we all set “jean goals” of pants that we want to fit into when the baby weight starts to come …

Roasted Veggies with a Creamy Garlic Dip

Roasted Veggies with a Creamy Garlic Dip

Roasted veggies are such a great way to add a pop of color to your meal. Such a gorgeous easy dish to make! Somehow whenever I make this dish I am able to to convince at least one of my kids to try a new vegetable. Pair it with a dipping sauce and I can get my children to try anything!  Using coconut oil in cooking is always a healthier option that I love to sneak in there with my baking. I have always loved Barleans products and have tried many of them! I love their fish oil swirls and …

Also have fresh healthier ingredients always seems to help too!   When taking pictures of meals that I …

Shady Brook Farms and Honeysuckle White Turkey

Shady Brook Farms and Honeysuckle White Turkey

Last year in June I had an amazing opportunity of traveling to Virginia to visit one of Shady Brook Farms and Honeysuckle White’s turkey farms. It was an eye opening experience mostly with how important it is to know where your food comes and the type of treatment your food gets before it ends up on your kitchen table. Having 4 young growing kids in my home I know how important it is to nourish their bodies with good food to help their bodies grow! So when Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms asked me to be a brand ambassador …

Happy New Year!!! A healthier lifestyle seems to always be a New Years resolution every year for myself and I believe most of you out there! In my opinion the best way to start is small steps!

Except I used turkey as the main source of protein to lower the fat and cholesterol  content and up the …

Crockpot Bone In Turkey Breast

Healthy eating starts with prep and planning. It is having the right stuff readily available. Here is a easy crockpot turkey recipe that will help you make sure you have your meat ready for your meals.

Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms also provides you with quality turkey …

Creamy Bean Dip

Football season has started and I am always looking for fun new recipes to enjoy during the game while the men watch football. Ill be completely honest I really don’t mind watching football with my husband, dad, or brothers. I grew up playing sports and have had a love for them my entire life. I usually understand what is going on while watching or playing different sports.     With that being said I love any type of fun appetizer food. I love ordering appetizer when I am out to eat even though I am pretty sure that my husband …
