This is a very quick and easy homemade pizza recipe. There are two great things about this recipe other than the INCREDIBLE taste: 1) It is nutrient dense, full of healthy protein and fat and devoid of grains and sugar 2) It takes 20 minutes to make (not including the baking time) and any busy momma or full time working super woman has the time to do it!
I see you there, running around like a banchee warrior with your head chopped off. Half dressed, coffee in hand, forcing your kids to inhale their breakfast while you guilt-i-ly throw some pre packaged form of something that is sold as food, (but you can't quite pronounce most of the ingredients), in their lunch box. As you lovingly smack their cute little rear-end pushing them out the door with a kiss, you promise that "tomorrow your lunch will be better and healthier!" You then fall into the couch with your cold cup of coffee and think "what the hell just happened." And your second thought is, "I could really use some ideas for more creative and healthy lunches."
I thought I would share with you all one of our favorite healthy, nutrient dense meals. Most of you know that we are following a Ketogenic diet to assist Kicker's body in getting rid of the cancer. You can read more about that here. Many people assume that eating this way is likely boring, too bland, or maybe too complicated. This delicious recipe will prove all of those assumptions wrong and make an ass out of u and me….get it, assume….never mind, I will get back to whats for dinner.
I have always liked LOVED graham crackers, especially with cream cheese on them. Oh my! Idon't love that most store bought graham crackers have high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and enriched flour, amongst many other less than healthful ingredients. We had our first bonfire of the season last night and enjoyed these tasty treats with some homemade marshmallows and organic, sugar free, soy free chocolate! My kids thought it was their birthday-no seriously my 2 year old kept asking "mommy is today Kicker's birthday again?" I was the favorite...for the moment...and then Joshman resumed his roll as favorite as soon as they woke up the next morning :) After a year or so of playing around with a few recipes I finally perfected the yummiest, grain free, dairy free and sugar free graham cracker! BOY are they good!
What the HELL are those words? Funny you ask-those are the ingredients of Similac Sensitive Powdered Formula for infants. Similac is the number one formula brand used in US hospitals. This absolutley sickens me. I don't get fired up about too many things, but the health of an infant/toddler-ohhhh! Just picture a kung-fu-fighter on crack that is having the munchies and just found out someone stole his doritos! That is ME when it comes to the health of babies.
This granola is amazing. Funny story-my sweet Selah had never had cereal in her short little life. The other day I broke her granola bar into pieces and poured milk in a bowl and made it cereal (we were out of eggs). She FLIPPED. Not happy! She said, "MAMA THIS IS COLD! WHAT IS IN MY MILK?" Once I convinced her to try it she loved it, but my little girl still prefers her warm breakfasts of eggs and bacon, coconut flour pancakes or soaked oatmeal.
Can I first tell you where the inspiration for this creation came from? Jack in the Box! We were watching tv one night and a Jack in the Crack commercial came on advertising their new 'breakfast sandwich.' I couldn't help but actually mutter the words, 'that sounds really good!' This of course led to the huz shooting me a look of utter excitement and falling off of the couch to get the keys and 'so selflessly' offer to get me a 'frankenfood' creation. I quickly retracted 'no, I mean I am totally going to make this-tomorrow for your birthday!' As I am sure he was a bit disappointed that he no longer had an excuse to hit up the drive thru at 11pm like his college days-I knew I wouldn't disappoint.
