Easy Instant Pot Recipes

On your mark…get set… Go, Instant Pot, Go! If there’s one positive change that happened to my kitchen routine in 2015, it was the addition of an Instant Pot to my appliance collection.  Finally a pressure cooker that doesn’t scare me half to death when I...

Easy Cassava Flour Crackers

I am constantly on the search for easy homemade lunch and snack ideas.  Both of my children take a homemade lunch or snack to school everyday, so each night before bed I find myself in the same place… …in front of the open fridge, staring and waiting for a...

Healthy Rice Krispies Treats

My kids love dessert.  Yes, I said that out loud. I will admit my kids are not organic, grass-fed meat and veggie-loving kids.  In fact when my son gets really angry with me he likes to tell me how much he LOVES GMOs and wants to eat them everyday. Oh parenthood. My...

DIY Freezer Protein Bars for Kids

I have to come clean about something here. My kids love bars. My daughter loves them so much she asks me for a bar about 30 times a day and I do not exaggerate that number in the slightest. As a mom, I like the idea of a bar.  You know…a small, portable (!!),...

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

At both my children’s schools there are several viruses (and one a dreaded stomach bug) making the rounds.  UGH.  Viruses are a part of life, especially with kids.  But with Halloween coming up this weekend and a road trip to San Francisco for the Kula Mama...

How to Make Bone Broth with EXTRA Minerals

My grandma called it stock.  Some people call it broth.  No matter what you call it, homemade bone broth is a nutritional powerhouse and to date I haven’t found any condition it won’t help.  Homemade broth, made with bones in particular, is the first thing I make when...

Overnight Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

I have a confession to make. We eat these pancakes at least 4-5 times a week. I try different pancake recipes every so often but they’re usually met with a lukewarm reception. Inevitably after the meal my son says, “Hey mom, can you just make the regular pancakes...

Health Benefits of Bone Broth

I’ve been working on my holistic first aid kit for a few years now and it’s seen me through some crazy cold and flu seasons.  I have several supplements, herbs and remedies that I come back to time and time again but my FAVORITE tool in my first aid kit is one you...

How to Make a Ginger Bug

Adding fermented foods to your child’s diet is a wonderful way to get healthy, gut-balancing flora into the digestive tract.  Fermented food and drink is cheaper than a probiotic supplement and is also more readily absorbed by the body.  The earlier kids are exposed...

Homemade Fruit Snacks (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

I have been working on this recipe for WEEKS.  My kids have always loved the idea of fruit snacks, but the store bought varieties are so full of artificial colors and sweeteners that I never buy them.  I love portable homemade snacks for kids so when I bought my first...

Toddler-Friendly Green Smoothie

A simple way to give your child’s daily meal plan a super nutrition boost is to introduce daily green smoothies.  The earlier you do this the better because a child’s taste buds start developing before birth!  Pregnant and nursing women should eat a wide...

6 Ingredient Popcorn Chicken (Gluten-free)

Despite my good intentions, there are nights I forget to plan anything for dinner. It happens. On those days I find myself rummaging around in the fridge at 4pm when the kids are cranky and it suddenly occurs to me that I have no idea what to feed them for dinner. Oh,...

Apple Pancakes (gluten-free)

I find these pancakes delicious (almost TOO delicious).  My children found them delicious one glorious morning a few weeks ago.  Until my very picky son said, “Heeeeeyyyyyy, MOM, are these apples in here?”  And that was the end of apple pancakes in our house.  Once...

Sweet Almond Milk (Dairy-free, Gluten-free)

One of the first differences we noticed when we arrived in Argentina is that people eat differently than we do at home.  Granted, that’s not hard to accomplish because our family eats differently than most everyone anyway, but I did immediately notice a lack of...

Puffed Quinoa Granola Bars (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free)

We’ve been making these around here for the past week. They have a similar texture to store bought granola bars which my son really likes. He ate them like crazy the first day we made them, but like most things in the food department, he’s tired of it after a day…more...

Simple Mineral Broth

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for cold and flu season to end.  With a new baby in the house we’ve really tried to be careful around here.  I’ve trained Kula Baby to wash his hands so many times a day… I might be unknowingly...

Protein Cookies (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

Where oh where has Kula Mama gone??? Well… Kula Baby is now a big brother!  We welcomed his little sister about 6 weeks ago. I’ve re-entered the world of frequent feedings, diapers changes, swaddling, and cat napping to salvage some semblance of sanity. I...

Kula Baby’s Favorite Milkshake

This “milkshake” is Kula Baby’s new favorite summer treat.  He thinks he’s getting some sort of chocolate-flavored ice cream and I’m in no hurry to tell him otherwise.  This smoothie is a perfect blend of protein and sweet.  It’s...
