Some days you don’t know what you’re craving. Your fridge is bare, or maybe there’s just nothing tickling your taste buds. These are the days you put together a basic PB&J (though it will never be as good as Mom’s). Since you’re a grown-up now, you could at least get a little creative with the brown bag classic. What you need is a fancier, more refined peanut butter and jelly – something the French may know a thing or two about. Thus, the PB&J French Toast Cup was born. Read more →

Inevitably, kids leave food on their plate. And because you’re conscientious of the family budget, the environment and those starving children all around the world, you hate seeing food wasted. So what do you do? Like generations of moms did before, you pick at their plates like a vulture. Maybe those breaded chicken nuggets look and smell soooooo much better than your tofu salad, but there’s a better way to handle leftovers. Read more →
Kids don’t like green food. OK, that’s not an absolute because my nine year old loves Brussels spouts; but overall, anything green is typically not well received by the under-eighteen set. So, I’ve taken old fashioned split pea soup, vamped it up, and made kid-friendly organic and vegan golden pea and barley soup. Better yet, this is a slow cooker recipe so you can toss it all in and come back to a rich, hearty dinner the whole family will love. Since I don’t like multi-step slow cooker recipes (because what is the point if you have to do a bunch of prep), this is a throw-it-in-and-go kind of dish. Enjoy!
It’s Mom versus the kids. They want pizza; you want a meal that isn’t greasy and actually has a nutritional profile you’re proud to feed growing little bodies. Before you slip on the gloves and duke it out, consider the middle ground. After all, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em! Read more →
We’ve all been there. You’ve had a long day and it ain’t over yet. With dinnertime fast-approaching you don’t have a clue what to cook. Ordering in is not an option – not a healthy one, anyway. Since this year you’re more committed than ever to eat clean and get fit (no matter what, right?), I’m dishing up my simplest meal solution: set it and forget it! Read more →
Unexpected winter weather holidays call for golf course sledding and snow ball fights. Though these coconut-dusted protein balls aren’t made of real snow, the kids will certainly be fighting over who gets the last one. This recipe calls for six ingredients and requires only a little hand-rolling to shape into spheres — a completely child-friendly activity to help pass the time. Once you’re done shaping, freeze the protein bites for an ice-cold “snow” ball you can rest assure the kids won’t throw at each other.
