If you have been following along here for a while you have probably realized that refined sugar and flour recipes don’t come around Nourished Peach much.  Quite frankly, this could be the very first one I have ever written about.  But just hear me out.

We eat well.  And by we, I mean my family at home and you, my NP family.  We do, we pack our every day diets with color and nutrients and protein and diversity.   Not because we want to see the scale drop or because we are trying to stay hip to new diet trends; because we care for our bodies, we care about the food we eat and because we get pleasure from gorgeous, enjoyable meals.  Food, with NP, is not only about fueling our bodies.  It’s about seriously enjoying the process of preparing the food and the gratification of the finished, delicious product.  And more than anything, to me, it is about sharing that finished product with the people I love most.  It’s about feeding bellies and souls.  Cooking is my favorite way to show love, and enjoying a meal with my friends and family is my favorite way to spend time.   Having all of those wonderful reasons we eat well allows us the ability to avoid diet rollercoasters, deprivation and unhealthful relationships with food.   Continue reading

Peaches are popping up all over the place these days, guys.  And man are they tasting amazing.  We can’t get enough.

But just yesterday, as the leaves began to fall a bit, I took a break from grilling and salads and lightness galore and ended up with this pot of gold on my stove. Continue reading

What an honor..and a treat to connect with some awesome fellow bloggers both nationally and internationally who have inspired me so much in my short blogging journey. Continue reading

Nourished Peach Crumble

So you may remember this mess of an experience I had trying to create a solid “crumble” recipe.  It failed.  And that was most definitely not my first and last attempt at getting it right.

But finally, I am satisfied.  I surrender to the fruit crumble madness that has taken over my home.  Which is, likely, a good thing.  My children aren’t too thrilled about it, but any more taste testing of these different recipes and chances are they’d turn into walking, crumbly, fruit humans.
