Snack? Dessert?  You decide.  Either way it's a healthy treat you'll feel no guilt when eating.

No Bake, homemade, SunButter Protein Cups make for a healthier, allergy-friendly, snack or dessert. Guilt free, gluten free & vegan too.

I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for my family.   While a store-bought protein bar may be a convenient choice, it is not always the best option out there!  Many are loaded with all types of sugars, artificial ingredients and allergens that can cause more harm than good. Luckily, this recipe for homemade SunButter Protein Cups are easy to make, have none of the junk, all of the clean protein and taste like dessert.  It has quickly become one of our all time favorites.

Homemade, Top 8 free & delicious! Easy to make, protein candy bars to make grab & go snacking healthier & allergy-friendly

Grocery shopping for a family with special dietary restrictions has gotten easier over the years.  I have found that it is safest to stay on the outside of the aisles and stick with mostly fruits and veggies.  Once I make my way toward the center of the store it is filled with all kinds of processed foods and very little of them are safe for our little guy. Occasionally you find a specialty item that seems like a life saver but for the most part, it's a tricky time walking through those areas, especially when it comes to Protein Bars.

Salt and vinegar dress up these sweet potato bites for a mouth watering, tangy & delicious take on a classic potato chip.

Salt and vinegar dress up these sweet potato bites for a mouth watering, tangy & delicious take on a classic potato chip. My salt & vinegar love affair started back when I was a child in Canada.  I used to love the Hostess brand with little devils on the front of the bag.  Those seemed to pack the most punch and made my mouth pucker more than any other.  I'm pretty sure there was a time or two that I ate so many chips that I could no longer feel my tongue!  Despite both the pain and delight I put my mouth through, my love affair continued.

Puréed cannellini beans give this soup its velvety texture, without the need for heavy cream or calories. 

Pureéd beans give this soup its velvety texture without the need to dairy. Beans, beans and more beans!  They never get old, really :).  With so many varieties, cooking methods and uses, I could eat beans everyday.  In fact, I think I have this month.  One of my favorite ways of using beans is by adding them to soup, and this velvety smooth, Cannellini Beans & Greens Soup is a delicious one I'd love for you to try! 

Now that we’ve wrapped up the year and beginning anew, it’s a good time for a fresh start. That means getting back to healthy foods and healthy routines again. 

Ginger & Mango team up to provide a healthy smoothie with a little bit of kick! Spicy Mango Tango Smoothie is V & GF.

Smoothies are a good thing and a great way to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables we eat.  Too many of us look to the next best fad diet instead of what's right in front of us.  Instead of low carb, calorie counting, magic pill taking or using a special wrap, it really comes down to simplicity. Eat simple, real foods, mostly plants!  That's why I love this new ebook called 40 Days of Green Smoothies by Becky Striepe.  It's the perfect companion to do just that!

Whether you are throwing a party or attending one to celebrate the New Year, it's always good to start off the year with a few delicious appetizers, like these incredibly easy Hasselback Baby Potatoes.

The perfect holiday appetizer made to impress your guests and amuse your tastebuds. V,GF,T8Free

During this years' Christmas party, I made a batch Hasselback Potatoes for the first time using baby sized spuds. I barely had time after they came out of the oven to sneak a pic or 2 because they were gobbled up, right away.  Needless to say, I just had to make them again then again until finally, no one was around to eat them (except me and I may or may not have eaten 1 right out of the pan).

I tell you this because these little munchies made everyone happy!  Hubby, kiddos, guests...really everyone.  Because I only share the "hits" not "misses",  I was determined to get this recipe with you before New Years Eve.  Then I realized...tomorrow is NYE!!! WOW.  SO in order to get this out in a timely manner, this is going to be short and sweet.  Sorry.... no long stories, no wordy explanations, just pictures and this Hasselback Baby Potato recipe.   You have parties to get to anyways, right?
