Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn (GF, DF, Vegan, Refined Sugar Free)

thefitforkfeed - November 14, 2016

You know you’ve hit the recipe jackpot, when you make, eat and then remake the same recipe 3 times in the same week.  Popcorn never lasts long around these parts with a ravenous 6 year old and a crazy snack loving mom! I honestly will never understand why/how my son eats so much? Is this just a boy thing?  Do tell.  He eats a huge …

Hi friends!  How’s your week so far?  I’ve been exhausted after Halloween, soccer parties, after school activities, upcoming holiday menu planning and of course cooking!  Oh and the damn time change didn’t help matters either, because those of us with kids know that the time change doesn’t mean anything to them.  Because things have been so hectic, I still like to keep my morning breakfast …

Happy November folks!  Halloween was such a blast but I’m really sad it’s over.  I loved taking creepy photos and creating posts with all of my Halloween props.  I suppose now I will have to move onto my Thanksgiving props, and then Christmas.  Where has this year gone?  Seriously, wasn’t it just summer?  Wasn’t I just talking about how awesome the strawberries were?  Sigh.  I …

Welcome back friends!  I hope the Autumn is treating you well (assuming you are celebrating this fine season).  Ever since I created my Cinnamon Roll Truffle Energy Bites, I’ve been a liiiiiiitle obsessed with all things cinnamon.  And by little, I mean a lot.  I’ve been adding it to smoothies, toast, basically anywhere that I can.  I’ve never tried my hand at making nut butters …

Happy Wednesday folks!  Fall has just decided to join us in Southern California which means we have temps below 75F!  Bring on all the pumpkin, apples, baking, and all the roasted vegetables! Speaking of roasting vegetables, I wanted to create a roasted cauliflower dish that was super sticky, gooey and that uses real whole food ingredients. Oh and it had to be baked. It was …

Happy almost Friday peeps!  It’s been crazy around here and to top it off someone informed me that “Mercury is in retrograde” which allegedly means things get a little topsy turvy.  For example, last week I dropped and smashed a glass bottle, broke my favorite necklace, all of my recipe testings failed and it was just overall a nightmare week.  But I’m back with a bang …

Double Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie (GF, DF, Nut Free, Refined Sugar Free)

thefitforkfeed - August 10, 2016

It was about a month ago when I saw the lovely Monique from Ambitious Kitchen’s Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies.  It was one of those recipes that stuck with me, in particular the dreamy photos of melty chocolate, fluffy perfectly shaped crispy edged cookies, with little sprinkles of flaked sea salt on them. I knew I had to make them and last week I finally had …

Your mornings just got a lot easier with these quick, soft, and fluffiest muffins ever!   I always love a good muffin recipe, especially when it involves 2 minutes prep time and 12 minutes of baking time.  These babies combine all of your favorite breakfast items such as oats, yogurt, bananas, blueberries, (which are so good right now by the way!) and granola.   My son, who …
