Quite a stir. That’s what the impending closure of Google+ caused. The announcement caused quite a stir twice: once when the site first initially announced it was closing due to a data breach, and then again when Google+ announced it was closing four months earlier than planned due to a second data breach. I came…
I adore avocados and eat them every week. It’s not uncommon for me to go through 3-5 avocados in a week. I put them on eggs, salads, make gluten-free brownies, top enchiladas, make guacamole with them…the list goes on and on.
There are so many recipes that utilize this awesome fruit. Give it a go…you won’t be disappointed.
Each day this week, I’ll list 2 different health benefits of avocados AND, post a video, showcasing a different way to use this amazing plant.
I have got to try this! LOVE beets and risotto.
This dish is one of my husband’s all time favourite dishes. I actually never used to like risotto, until I started making my own.
500g fresh, raw beetroots, peeled, trimmed and cut into wedges
splash of olive oil
knob of butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped
250g risotto rice (I use Arborio)
150ml dry white wine (I use Sauvignon Blanc)

2. Put chopped beetroot in an oven proof dish. Sprinkle with olive oil, season and cook for about an hour, until soft.
3. Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan, and cook the onion and garlic for about 3-5 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Stir in the rice and white wine, and let bubble on medium heat until the wine has…

Having been a proud veg-head for over a decade, it’s astounding how many people don’t understand the difference between these two words. I used to be a vegetarian and would get irritated when they removed eggs and cheese from my orders. I would always have to explain the difference. I would like to also note, that there is a HUGE honey debate in the vegan world. I know quite a few vegans who do eat honey. Some do, some don’t, but it’s not as clean-cut as stated below. Other than that, there’s good information to share.
Many people get confused with the varying terms for dietary choices. “Vegetarian” is often used to denote any diet that does not include meat, but it is actually more complex than that. For example, is fish considered “meat”? What about dairy products? The term “vegan” is somewhat newer, and people often use it interchangeably with…
What’s better than caramel thumbprint cookies? Healthy gluten free salted caramel thumbprint cookies; that’s what! Well, okay, healthier is probably a more accurate description, but with just a touch of sugar and most of the sweetness coming from agave syrup, we are definitely a long way from unhealthy. These salted caramel thumbprint cookies are made without…

As a homeschooling mom, picking out the right curriculum can be challenging. Getting reviews from other homeschoolers is a blessing. It’s one thing to be able to see samples, but actual reviews are even better! Had to share this review. In case you’re wondering (like I was), this is gender neutral. ~Lynn
When our family first began homeschooling, I found myself overwhelmed by the wealth of information available. I was undecided regarding personal goals for our children or which method of homeschooling was best. Through prayer and my husband’s leading, we determined there were three goals we were seeking for our children. We wanted them to read […]
