Grilled Acorn Squash

Can you think of any vegetable that doesn’t taste better cooked on the grill??  Me neither!  And acorn squash is no exception!  I love the smokey flavor that grilling adds to this naturally sweet Fall/Winter vegetable.

Going Grain Free has its challenges.  For example, sometimes you just want a granola bar or a cookie!  But there are better options that are grain free, sugar-free and just as yummy!  Did you try the Pecan and Coconut Bars from the other day?  Those are a big hit around here and a good mix between a bar and a cookie with just the right amount of sweet.  Or try today’s recipe which taste similar to a shortbread cookie.  (Even my husband said so and he’s a hard one to convince!!)

Chick Pea and Vegetable Soup

Trying to fit more vegetables into your diet can be difficult and perhaps boring. :-)  I love vegetables, but I get tired of eating salads sometimes, so soups are another great option to fit in more vegetables.  Changing up the seasonings and adding different seasonal vegetables offers a wide variety of tasty options.  Use whatever veggies you have in the house!

We don’t eat potatoes around here too often, as they are pretty starchy.  But sometimes it’s nice to have a warm cozy comfort food and this is one of our favorites!  Try adding carrots and/sweet potatoes for some variation. Rosemary Roasted Red Potatoes :-)
