Sweet & Crunchy Energy Poppers

Lord knows we could all use a sweet little burst of energy at times but often we grab for the wrong thing which leaves us tired and deflated. So yesterday when I came across this recipe from one of my favorite sites Primally Inspired I was intrigued as it was simple, fast and looking at […]

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

I know, it doesn’t sound quite right, mixing avocados with chocolate but really, it’s a delicious combo and certainly a healthier option to the store bought pudding mixes. This recipe has 5 natural ingredients (Avocado, Cocoa, Coconut Milk, Honey & Vanilla) compared to the list of ingredients in the Jell-O brands found here. Serve it […]

NuttZo Butter Cups

Sweet and salty bringing back memories of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup but with only the good stuff! While we love sweets, we do care about the ingredients so when we stumbled upon this recipe from Savory Lotus we just had to try it. The only thing we changed was we replaced the almond butter […]

Red Stemmed Chard Sesame Chips

Kent’s garden surprise was the great Red Stemmed Chard and aside from putting it in our green drinks, Cynthia made some chips for us while visiting us in California. Great way to get kids and grown ups who don’t like their greens to chow down on chard as well! ~ XO Mama Ferg Print Recipe

Tuna with Sunflower & Pumpkin Seeds

No time for lunch? No excuses – put that microwaveable burrito down, now! Just open a can of tuna, toss in some sunflower and pumpkin seeds, squeeze half of a lemon, add a little olive oil, dust it with some salt and pepper and you are good to go – sugar crash not included! Seriously, […]

Skinny Bruschetta

While we usually make bruschetta with toasted bread drizzled with olive this is a different spin on an old favorite. Sydney created this lovely treat last summer as we were all sitting around the counter eating fresh pesto pretty much by the spoonful if you must know! Seeing as there was no bread around she […]

Apple Streusel Egg Muffins

In light of my 21-Day Sugar Detox, here is a recipe that is 21DSD approved! Thank you to Balanced Bites for this wonderful and easy recipe to follow – it was truly a treat after weeks of nothing sweet! As of this post, my 21 days are done, but honestly I don’t think I’ll go […]

Grain Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

These babies are Paleo approved and gluten free, but don’t let that fool you into thinking they are actually good for you! After three weeks detoxing from sugar I thought I would treat myself to some homemade chocolate chip cookies to see how I felt after eating them. They were delicious and I couldn’t stop […]

Salmon & Arugala

  The Kitchen Ladies are fully engaged in a 21-day sugar detox and we want to take you on our journey and share with you the quick satiating treats that we enjoy along the way. We will be working hard to be creative in this new landscape of sugar-free doldrums but have no fear, as […]

Apples with Cinnamon & Vanilla

Working in an office definitely has its downfalls and it can come in the form of candy jars, complimentary donuts, or cake covers that keep those fructose-laden treats fresh for days (walking past these beckoning delights day-after-day can be the ultimate torture). It’s a sweet tooth’s dream, but a health conscious girl’s nightmare! For me, […]
