Posted by on Apr 18, 2014 in Desserts, Holiday, Holiday, Recipes, Toddler/Child | 0 comments

Cadbury Eggs were an Easter tradition growing up as a kid, and I  absolutely loved them.

Yes, they were a fun tradition growing up, but as I have become more health conscious, I’ve decided to ditch the Cadbury Eggs and choose healthier options instead. I am so happy to say that I have found a homemade – Paleo and Vegan – version of Cadbury Eggs! It’s still candy, but a much healthier option than what Cadbury has to offer. This is something I wouldn’t mind eating or allowing my kids to eat every year for...

I love making special meals for the holidays – any holiday – so it probably comes as no surprise that I wanted to share some healthy Thanksgiving breakfast ideas with all of you. Breakfast Turkey You don’t have to eat Turkey to eat this yummy Breakfast Turkey! That’s right, it’s vegetarian and if you prefer, you can use a vegan cheese for the beak and feet. It’s super easy, fun, and healthy. win-win-win.   Pumpkin Pie Parfait by simplyorganic.com I am all about simple, healthy ingredients that make something truly delicious. This is it.
