Sunrise Smoothie


This combination had been a favorite for a really long time! I keep meaning to share it here and always forget. But not today! Here it is. Enjoy! I really love the color of this combination.


One blender full:

  • 2 bananas (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 2 cups frozen mango chunks
  • 4 handfuls frozen peaches
  • 2 cups pineapple (fresh canned, or frozen)
  • 2 cups coconut milk

Blend everything together in a blender. Add more coconut milk if needed. Enjoy cold!

Quick Meatloaf (Paleo/Whole 30)

I am terrible about not measuring spices when I cook! When people ask for my recipes I don’t know how to tell them what I used! This recipe is one example. I finally took time to measure the spices so I could blog the recipe to share!



  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs**
  • 1 tesaspoon salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tesaspoon garlic porder*
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder*
  • 3 Tablespoons Italian seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 350┬║.
  2. In a large bowl, mash together all the ingredients. I usually use my hands to make sure all the meat is well mashed and the spices are blended in, and for the black pepper I just sprinkle it over the top of everything before mixing.
  3. Press evenly into a 9×13 pan. -This will make for a thin meatloaf, but will give at least 8 portion sizes once cooked.
  4. Bake for 30-40 minutes. You’ll want to cut down the middle to make sure it is completely cooked. I usually start with 30 and go from there, adding 10┬áminutes if needed. Because it is thin, it cooks quickly.
  5. Serve warm. You can top with some tomato sauce, homemade ketchup, or eat like it is! Leftovers are also really good mixed with hashbrowns & kale and stir-fried!


  • **We use duck eggs, but chicken will work as well.
  • *I have used fresh crushed garlic and chopped onion in place of powdered. It works well both ways.

Stovetop Chicken Bone Broth

Bone broth is very easy to make, even though it can be a little time consuming if done on the stove. I go between stovetop and crockpot frequently. The method I use depends on the time I have available to keep an eye on it when it’s time to make the broth.

Bone broth is good for our bodies in many ways. Some use it for Gut Health, others in restoring minerals for their teeth. Anytime there is illness in our home I make it a priority to cook fresh bone broth to help everyone get nutrition they need while not feeling well. It also makes a wonderful base for many soups, adding a rich flavor so it never goes to waste.

Lactation Cookies {Vegetarian}

I’ve had a favorite lactation cookie recipe for many years, but it had dairy in it and I’m aiming for dairy free once again so I thought I would remake the recipe to fit my latest eating goals. It is delicious and a few go a long way to giving a boost in the milk production department. Even if you just want a handy snack while breastfeeding, this is the perfect snack recipe!

Enjoy 3-5 a day!
