I’ve posted the nut bars I make for my child here before, the Cinnamon Raisin version. This one is more of a re-make of the original recipe I found from The Nourishing Home. I just added a few things, mixed it up a bit, but it is worth re-posting. These…

Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing & Picky Sensory Kids

Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing & Picky Sensory Kids

My child is super picky- he has some sensory things going on, and also he has Pyroluria (more about that later) which includes a side effect of “meat aversion“. So, getting him to the more keto/traditional side of eating isn’t easy. Of course, he LOVES carbs. I have been transitioning…

Keto Lemonade

Keto Lemonade

I love this stevia sweetened lemonade, for kids. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of stevia, you should know it blends very well with lemons and with dairy. So try it! Even my husband likes this recipe, though he’s not a fan of stevia. I like NuNaturals, because it has very little bitter or licorice taste.

Keto Chorizo Custards in the Instant Pot

Keto Chorizo Custards in the Instant Pot

I love my Instant Pot! I love this recipe so much, it’s worth having an IP just for boiling eggs and making this!!! I have made these little custards a few times now. Last time, I used mushrooms. This time I am using chorizo! We cooked up some chorizo for breakfast the other day, and set aside some for custards. I was very excited to find chorizo at my pastured farmer’s shop in town. This recipe serves six, as an appetizer or side dish. It is very rich!

Simpler Treats BPA-free Silicone Popsicle Molds Product Review & Real Food Frozen Chocolate Pops Recipe

I love to make these chocolate pops for my son. They are full of real food, and protein; and he loves them. I don’t add any sweetener but the fruit. Everything gets sweeter as it is frozen. You can change the fruit around if you want. I made them once with frozen cherries and they were PINK! I use a Vitamix.

Meatza Pizza! Low carb pizza

Meatza Pizza! Low carb pizza

We have been experimenting with Meatza pizzas over here, since my husband has gone low carb. Love this one. Obviously skip the sauce if you are a non-plant eating zero carber. You could make this with fresh mozzarella on top, or any way you like. I bought shredded cheese and sliced cheese to make it easier. I put the sauce on the side for husband, usually. I eat it without.

Stevia Sweetened Blueberry Lavender Lemonade

Stevia Sweetened Blueberry Lavender Lemonade

Blueberries are in season and we have a big craving! This lemonade sounds strange, but it is actually really addictive and delicious!! For this, I used dried lavender from my own garden that I had just dried, so it was pretty fresh, resulting in a very strong lavender taste. If you are using fresh lavender, I recommend you half the lavender but keep the same amount of water if you don’t want a strong lavender taste. If you bought it from the store, or it came from a teabag, no problem. Even though the lavender was strong in our lemonade, we still love the taste.

Blueberries are a low sugar berry bursting with antioxidants, phytonutrients, fiber, and tannins -which reduce inflammation in your digestive system! Blueberries are a superfood. They are also good for your brain, and for men … well you can look that one up ;). Blueberries are #14 on the dirty pesticide list, so try to buy them organic.
