My first hand account of the ongoing search for health and wellness through a conscious focus on nutrition, cooking, ingenuity, and physical exertion. As an active stay at home mother of two young children, I spend large portions of my day in my kitchen inventing new recipes and reinventing old favorites into fun, healthy and delicious meals my whole family loves... especially while on the run... literally.
Who doesn't love a pop tart? I remember begging my mom to buy them back in the 80s, and my kids now bug me every time we go to the grocery store to buy them as well. Luckily there are organic, slightly healthier versions available in the store these days, but in my opinion, if it comes in a box, with an expiration date months in the future, it can't really be that good for you. And plus, these are so much fun to make at home! I like to use my organic whole wheat, coconut oil crust as the base for these, but the choice of fillings is endless! At this time of year, I'm thinking that a pumpkin spice filling would be perfect and I now want to try that out, so please check back for the update! In the meantime, your favorite jam or jelly, Nutella, or another nut butter, or a combination of some sort will work perfectly. Even some chocolate chips and fresh fruit could work. Perfect option for a Sunday morning!
