Little kids, grown up diets and the Tao of a peaceful meal.

If you’re like me, and have a little kid(s) then you know what a struggle it can be to please everyone at meal time. Our daughter is a pretty good eater, though she is prone to change her likes and dislikes seemingly on a whim. The problem is that what she likes and what we…

Sheet pan cod with asparagus, carrot, lemon and a funny thing.

BLE compliant; gluten-free; low carb; omega 3 booster; Seafood is a funny food for me, not funny haha, but funny as in it is rarely a go to meal for me. I usually go for chicken or pork, heck I turn to meatless options before seafood usually. What’s even funnier about this is that I…

Roasted celery root, with carrot and onion.

BLE compliant; gluten free; low sodium; vegetarian; vegan One thing about side dishes that we take for granted is their versatility. There are so many side dishes that can be paired with other dishes, that we forget to search out new and exciting foods. Instead we stay in our lane, doing what feels safe. Ever…

Waste not, Want not, that’s what I always say.

A famous saying for sure, and one I repeat to myself on a fairly regular basis. I have mentioned before on this site that I have a bit of a problem with people wasting food. I’m sure my daughter can attest to that. One of the many lessons I learned in my culinary career was…

BLE friendly; low sodium; gluten free; low carb Going out to eat has become somewhat of a rarity in our house, maybe once a month or even less. It is not because of a lack of options, or because we can’t find healthy meals while out n’ about. It usually has to do with wanting…

The Breakfast of Champions!

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you gotta start your day the right way. They say that without a well balanced breakfast, you wouldn’t be on your game. They say the early bird gets the worm. I’m assuming that is in reference to breakfast somehow. Wow, “they” sure say a…

Let’s go bowling, no gutter balls please!

BLE-friendly; low carb; vegetarian; vegan; low sodium; Now, when it comes to the latest trends, and what is hot, let’s just say I’m not exactly in the know. I haven’t updated my phone in a few years, and I was one of those fools in the 90’s that thought computers were just a passing fancy….

Locally sourced love

A locavore is described as someone who strives to only eat foods sourced within a 100 mile radius of their home. This is indeed a noble endeavor, although one that can be nearly impossible to do. Most of Us just do not have the time, resources, or knowledge to pull it off. Where on earth…
