    Cheese Crisps – Excellent Keto Snack Option

    Are you interested in following a Keto diet?  I recently switched over – I feel like I am one of the last holdouts – though I know thats not true.  To follow a Keto diet I need to make sure I have plenty of options for every person in the house.  Some need Keto Snacks while others focus on the meals.  A snack option that is a huge hit are Keto Cheese Crisps.  You really cannot get easier than this.  I actually make like four packages of cheese at one time and each package fills up two large cookie sheets. This is also a relatively inexpensive snack option.  I go…

    Delicious and Easy Healthyier Fruit Roll-Ups

    This is a recipe I make in my dehydrator but you can easily make it in your oven at the lowest setting on your oven which is either going to be 140 or 170. We make this quite often – particularly all summer long when we want healthier snacks “on the go”. Large jar of applesauce (50-60 oz) 2 boxes of jello (regular or sugar-free – whatever flavor you want) Mix the two ingredients together and layer (thinly and as evenly as you can) on sheets for the dehydrator.  If you are using your oven you can layer on parchment paper on cookie sheets for the same result. Warm at…

    Fruit Salad

      Well it just turned Spring and that immediately means we will start eating fruit salads ALOT. First of all fruits just taste better in the warmer months. Second – they are usually on sale more during the warmer months – everything starts to be in season and a whole lot less expensive.   I make fruit salads often – all kinds. But this one is our family’s favorite – I will share other versions later but this one has a base of berries and lots of them.   We start with pineapples…     Cantaloupes…     Blueberries…     Raspberries…     Strawberries…     Green grapes…  …

    Fast and Fun Filling Treat With Bees Knees

      We are nut butter fans in our house – peanut butter, almond butter, and even soy nut butter. They are always in our house and we love variety.   But lately we discovered The Bee’s Knees by the Peanut Butter and Company. The nurse at my daughter’s school clued me in to this really delightful “special” peanut butter and now we are hooked. The Bee’s Knees is peanut butter blended with scrumptious honey. It’s great as a quick, protein packed, breakfast spread. Melt it over pancakes, spread it on waffles, add it to smoothies, or eat it straight from the jar. My daughter loves it on saltines – and…
