This healthy dessert is easy to serve for large groups of people and the leftovers also make  a wonderful healthy breakfast that kids love.

Most crumbles use butter and white flour, but this delicious crumble offers you fiber, protein and it uses grape seed oil which is a healthy oil.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Totally Terrific Tart Crust That is Easy and Healthy!

Summer is approaching! That means that all of the delicious fresh blueberries, strawberries, nectarines and peaches will be filling the stands at our farmers markets and in our grocery stores. Hooray! 

This whole grain tart crust is so easy and can be made in MINUTES. There is no rolling dough, you don’t have to put the dough in the refrigerator before baking, and no beans are required when baking it in the oven.

Therefore, I will be doing a series of posts on tarts, how to decorate tarts, gluten free tart crusts, fancy tart crusts, and ideas of how to fill your tart crusts with fresh fruit to make healthy desserts.  Read More→

It’s the little things that can make you so happy. You can turn lemons into lemonade, and you can turn bread ends into bread pudding!

This is the story of how I learned how to make  bread pudding using the remaining end pieces of a whole wheat bread loaf.

For I have to admit.

The one thing that I really don’t like about really healthy whole wheat bread is………. without exception is the last few pieces of the loaf always seem to fall apart. It seems that the healthier the bread is, the type void of preservatives and chemicals, the more frequently this occurs.

Therefore, left in my refrigerator is almost always 2-3 slices of broken bread in the bag with no purpose at all, often ripped and not “sandwich worthy.”

Healthy Baking Lets You Have Your Cake and Be Healthy Too

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Healthy Baking Lets You Have Your Cake and Be Healthy Too

Who ever made up the rule that baked goods had to be “bad” for us? I mean really. As a culture, how did we decide that all baked goods were going to have  NO nutritional value, spike our blood sugar, make us fat and sluggish, not satisfy our hunger, provide empty calories, and be filled with toxic chemicals and additives; all of which are directly linked to obesity and numerous diseases?

Why not eat delicious treats that are also healthy for our bodies!
