Moroccan Spiced Red Lentil Soup

I’ve been cooking sans oil for the last few weeks because of my Engine 2 Oil-Free Challenge and I’ve discovered that I used to use oil in so many recipes where it simply wasn’t needed. In fact, in most cases, I think the recipe tastes better without the oil…you can really taste the veggies when [...]

Matcha Source ~ Matcha Giveaway!

DSC03671

We HealthyMammas LOVE our matcha tea! It’s my favorite morning ritual…and afternoon ritual on most days…I’m actually having a matcha latte as I type this.  It wakes me up and gives me sustained energy without giving me the “coffee jitters” and without the “crash” that follows a few hours after I drink coffee. Matcha is [...]

Hello Healthy Friends!  Long time no chat!  Or, should I say…long time no post?!  I’ve been super crazy busy with cakes and kids and carnivals and costumes…all fun and fabulous stuff! We had a super fun Halloween with Rapunzel and our mini firefighter. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday too! I love this time [...]

Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes & My “Oil-Free Challenge”

DSC03549

This past Monday I started a 28 day “Oil-Free” challenge. I wanted to support and join my fellow HealthyMamma Kim on her Engine 2 Vegan Challenge but I’m already vegan…I’ve been dairy free for almost 2 years and meat free for a couple of months…prior to that I was still consuming fish on occasion.  So, obviously, the [...]

Veggie and Udon Noodle Bowl

I’ve been a busy HealthyMamma in the kitchen these past few days! Unfortunately, not everything that I’ve made has been a success. To be completely honest, some of it was not even edible! On Sunday morning I ventured into my THIRD attempt at creating vegan whole grain waffles…only to end up literally scraping them out [...]

My workout journey with the Tracy Anderson Method

PDS 2

Right now I feel like someone took me by both arms and both legs and pulled me in 4 different directions…to the point where my arms and legs almost…but not quite…came out of their sockets. That’s how sore I am! It’s a deep inner muscular sore…it’s a Tracy Anderson Method sore. I’ve been doing Tracy’s [...]

Fresh Veggie Spring Rolls

My appetite seems to be a little confused lately. My brain tells me that as of this past Friday, it’s officially fall…but, the weather here in Austin tells me a whole different story. Knowing that fall weather is (hopefully) in my near future, I’m craving things like pumpkin and spiced baked goods, stews, soups…basically warming comfort [...]
