Fit Foodie: A family affair

Our family cooking nights are turning into something amazing!  There is this pride that I am seeing in my children’s faces that is priceless.  Granted we are talking spaghetti cooking and not 5 Michelin star quality meals but one day…who knows right? The meal bins/rotation has made life so much easier.  I am trying to always […]

Fit Foodie:  Involving the kids more

Dinners have been different here.  The kids have been wanting to help out more.  We have been focusing on lower technicality recipes.  I am trying to feed their curiosity but also their want to help.  It is so easy to get caught up in the moment and turn a child down from helping because we […]

Fit Foodie: Trying to make this all work

I love the ketogenic way of eating.  My kids, however, are not totally sold on it yet.  I knew that this was going to be a challenge.  It was when I first started changing our ways over 4 years ago to cleaner eating.  The two bite rule is still in full effect.  You take two […]

Fit Foodie gone keto!

No matter how much I looked at not removing grains and sugar…  I could not seem to walk away from the thoughts of ketogenic/primal benefits for athletes.   One-Pan Pesto Chicken and Veggies Cranberry Sour Cream Blender Muffins Chocolate Butter Fat Bombs Cream Cheese Pancakes (Low Carb & Keto) Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes | Fall In […]
