These two sunny popsicles are made with organic, local foods from our buying club (Annie’s Organics in Florida) and mixed with local honey from James Gallagher Wildflower Honey in Boynton Beach, FL. They are both nutritional and refreshing, and you can use whatever seasonal fruits you have at home to make these awesome colorful treats.
Berry season is upon us and we got three tubs of ripe raspberries in our organic buying club share. Our daughter isn't crazy about the tartness of raw raspberries, but she loves these heart-shaped popsicles made with the help of an old "cookie-on-a-stick" baking pan.
This mornings juice is exactly what we needed to get this hump day started in the right direction. This basic juice is full of Vitamin C, Potassium, and Calcium and will make enough for 3-4 glasses over ice. As mentioned in a previous post, we use the carrot pulp for many kid-friendly recipes, like our Carrot
Once you've tried grilled corn-on-the-cob, there's no going back to the boiled/steamed ones. There's a smoky sweetness to these grilled babies, while remaining juicy by grilling with the corn husks attached.

There’s something perfect about fried, green plantains (aka “Tostones”) with their starchy, slightly sweet taste, fried golden and sprinkled with salt. I paired this week’s with homemade Guacamole with Hidden Veggies and Grilled Corn-on-the-Cob with Pepper-lime Butter. Fiesta! If you

If your family is used to eating straight guacamole with store-bought chips, ease into the veggies-hiding by adding small amounts at first.

Fermented foods don't just taste good, they are great for your digestive health. We all hear the hype about "Pro-biotics and live cultures", but what does that really mean? Yogurt and other fermented foods like our featured guest, Sauerkraut, are made by a process called Lacto-fermentation. Cabbage, and most fruits and veggies, have beneficial bacteria
Chocolate is rich in flavonoids; antioxidants that are good for your heart, help remove environmental toxins, and aid cellular repair. With that in mind, I’m using that as an excuse to make this delicious chocolate cake. (It may not be uber-healthy when it comes to sugar and fat, but it IS deliciously chocolate.)
Apple carrot bran muffins are a nice way to use our juice pulp from carrots and apples that make their way into our daily juice. If you don't juice or have apple/carrot juice pulp handy, use shredded apples, applesauce, or mashed banana. I've even used one of my daughter's mashed fruit pouches in a pinch
