Mocha Mushroom Pumpkin Seed Smoothie

Hello!  It’s been an interesting season of figuring out my energy, weight fluctuations and what’s been behind them and frankly just balancing trying to homeschool three children with running a few businesses.  I have needed quick, simple and light lunch options to break my fast […]

Bluebell Smoothie (Vanilla Blueberry Lemon)

Bluebell Smoothie (Vanilla Blueberry Lemon)

All right… I’ve been making smoothies like mad and haven’t been posting them to the blog!  Guilty!  This is what life-as-homeschool-mom brings.  But these babies are so good I can’t let it go without sharing.  Stay tuned… more to come.   I feel so blessed that […]

Nootroopic Keto Hot Cocoa (Brain Mushrooms!)

Nootroopic Keto Hot Cocoa (Brain Mushrooms!)

These are a long time favorite in our little family.  The original recipe is from a few renditions back and was given to me by the owners of a local Italian bistro that has since closed up shop.  I could never eat them myself… but […]

Dark Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream (Keto & Paleo)

Dark Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream (Keto & Paleo)

This is another adaptation of my mother’s keto ice cream genius.  She went to work to create a keto version of Chocolate Moose Tracks and after quite a few tries she nailed it!  I cannot do dairy so I adapted it for me and used […]
