3 Berry Chia Popsicles

Popsicles are a fun way to add more fruits (or even veggies) to your menu anytime of the year.  Choose your favorite combination, throw it all in a blender and then freeze to enjoy later.  It’s a great snack to have prepared ahead of time and the kiddos (and hubby!) think it’s a treat.  They don’t have to know what ingredients I sneak into them!  :-)

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

***Thanks for joining in on the 31 Day Series fun!  Make sure you check out some of the other amazing series from over 1,000 other bloggers!***

Definitely the best way to enjoy cauliflower.  I hate mushy cauliflower! :-(  Roasting the cauliflower on hight heat in the oven means you get to keep the crunch and also adds tasty browned edges.  YUM!

Zucchini Mushroom Roll-Ups

Zucchini is such a favorite of mine.  You can slice it, dice it, chop it even make it into pasta.  You can add it to so many dishes and soups, plus it is full of minerals and nutrients.

(Check out some of these great ways to serve zucchini: Spicy Zucchini Boats, Parmesan and Pepper Zucchini Fries, Confetti Rice Zucchini Boats.)

Cranberry Maple Brussel Sprouts

***Thanks for joining in on the 31 Day Series fun!  Make sure you check out some of the other amazing series from over 1,000 other bloggers!***

Anyone else think brussel sprouts were disgusting when they were younger?  Oh, man!  Just the name, eeeew. :-)  But now I love, love, LOVE them! Have you tried them on the grill before?  YUM! My six-year old son walked into the kitchen holding his nose when I made them this time, ha!  Needless to say, hubby and I ate them all by ourselves, but we didn’t mind not sharing. ;-)  

Cranberry Maple Brussel Sprouts 5

This month I have a 31 Day series happening on the blog all about Grain Free/Sugar Free Recipes.  Sugar and unhealthy grains are in most everything.  Even foods disguised as healthy!  I am constantly researching and reading to determine healthy menus/recipes for my family, but it can be so hard.  Basically the more I research, the more foods I want to avoid.  Sugar is such an addiction, whether we realize it or not, because it’s in everything and the more we have, the more we want!  Most any prepared food has added sugar that may be disguised with a different name, but it is sugar no matter what you call it!

31 Days Grain Free Sugar Free Button

Grains are so confusing, as those we would think or hope to be good for us, have actually had all the “good stuff” removed.  We are hard pressed to find a healthy grain and then on top of that we are pushed into eating more of them than we should.  Anyone else think the standard food pyramid is just plain messed up?

I have specifically been looking at sugar and grains as they relate to heart and brain health and will continue to post more as I delve into this research.  So many health problems could be avoided if we seek to prevent them instead of trying to reverse them when it’s too late.  Anyway…enough of me on my soap box.  :-)  Le’t get on to the recipe! 

Find the recipe over at Day2DayJoys where I am contributing today!
