    Peaches and Cream Oatmeal (GF)

    Anyone else love the Quaker instant peaches and cream oatmeal packs as a kid? They were my all time favorite breakfast so I had to recreate a healthier version for my own family to enjoy. This simple bowl of oats is loaded in joint, hair and skin boosting collagen, fresh peaches, gluten free sprouted oats, and a bit of honey and coconut sugar to taste. Topped with fresh peach slices and chopped walnuts, I dare say it’s better than the original! Plus instead of a straight sugar rush, it will keep you and your family full for hours. Why Collagen?

    Healthy Carrot Cake Loaf (GF/Paleo)

I found this awesome maple syrup that tastes like toffee called Birch Benders that I used to help reduce the sugar content in the whole thing. The flours used are a blend of…
