Hello friends, happy almost-spring! It’s raining and gloomy here in Minnesota…but I’ll take it, because it’s 39 degrees and the mounds of snow are slowly getting washed away. I’m beginning to see the light!
If you follow along on Instagram, you know that I shared some ideas on how we buy our yogurt and put yogurt parfaits together. And as I was talking about it, I realized I haven’t shared our go-to granola recipe as of the last few years with you. Shame on me! Continue reading
My kids are totally into making all kinds of snack bites like these lately. They’re such a yummy treat, are great for lunchbox packing, and best of all…the kids can literally make these from start to finish all by themselves….Just look at Jude’s work of art…I can’t handle how cute and homemade looking they are! Continue reading
It’s starting to officially feel like fall, guys! How have you been celebrating? Give me all the warm coffee, crunchy leaves, cool, refreshing air, pumpkins, corn mazes, scenic colors that will blow your mind…and APPLES! It’s all happening in our neck of the woods and if I could just pile on an extra couple months of this stuff I’d be one over-the-moon mama. Minnesota truly feels like the most magical place this time of year.
We had our annual apple orchard trip a couple weeks ago and, well, if you know me you know that it’s my very favorite family outing of the year. Being stuck in the middle of nowhere surrounded by the most incredible scenery with my four favorite humans just simply isn’t a terrible way to spend a Saturday. We got to show the baby all the ropes this year…and man the big kids are becoming pro pickers! Here are a few photos from the day Continue reading
Happy Saturday, friends! More specifically, the Saturday before Valentines Day. So I thought I just must leave you with a super fun recipe for you to hammer out this weekend…Cherry Pie Pastry Hearts! Continue reading
You aren’t going to believe these. Truly.
Let’s just start with the fact that they involve only 6 simple ingredients.
And then lets discuss the fact that there is no cooking involved. Or blending. Or pureeing. Or effort. None.
And then let’s talk about how much more healthful they are than your typical store-bought white sugar packed peanut butter chocolate granola bars.
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
Guys, I write to you with reservation. This is not how this was supposed to go. We weren’t supposed to end our zucchini week this way. I had big dreams. High hopes. Goodbyes are difficult…zucchini goodbyes, well, they deserve more than a confidence-lacking post.
You see, I was kind of saving the best for last here with this bread. I made it last week…it was incredible…but I didn’t take photos. Figured I’d make it again this week because my kids acted like famished wolves when I made the last batch…it would be a perfect opportunity for me to get some photos for you. How special to be able to share them on this last day we have together with zucchini. I hate goodbyes. Continue reading
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! And what’s a holiday celebration without a little festive food? These little darlings are the perfect addition to your weekend plans…aren’t they cute? Continue reading
I’d like to introduce you to my absolute, without-a-doubt, not-an-ounce-of-questioning, favorite sweet treat there ever was forever and ever and ever. Take special care of this one, you guys, it’s an absolute gem. Continue reading
Man can breakfasts get mundane in my home. Finding something thats quick and healthful while still tasting yummy for the kiddos can be quite the challenge. I am thankful they love eggs in all shapes and forms but, as it is, we darn near need to buy a family of chickens to keep up with that whole deal.
Sweet treats can be so fun for breakfast…and these muffins fit right in that category. My kids love my pumpkin muffins and sometimes for something fun I add in chocolate chips. So I thought…if pumpkin is so yummy in a baked good, why wouldn’t sweet potato be? Continue reading
