{Nourish} Is Tuna Healthy? & An Everyday Tuna Salad with Apples

tuna salad with applesI am constantly searching for ways to make lunch feel exciting. Otherwise, I end up eating the same thing every….single….. day for what feels like weeks on end. It’s true.

{Nourish} Chocolate Chip Cashew Butter Oatmeal Muffins

Chocolate Chip Cashew Butter Oatmeal MuffinsIf you ask Hudson, he would tell you that we have been eating cupcakes for breakfast this week, and that is fine by me! Now three weeks into kindergarten, we (meaning me) might actually be getting used to this new schedule which has dramatically slashed our morning chill time. Less time calls for healthy breakfast options that are appealing and easy to eat on the fly. This baked oatmeal muffin is exactly that and even better, it is just as appealing to us parents as you only need one bowl and a few ingredients. You might even have enough left over to freeze.

{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler

Cool Weather Cobbler with Cranberries and Ginger @KatieCavutoRDAs far as I am concerned, every season deserves a cobbler or crumble of sorts. While I tend not to have much of a sweet tooth (pass the potato chips, please), I love fruit and roasted fruit may just top the list of my favorite desserts–they simply feel more savory to me. This cool weather cobbler is packed with fall flavors including savory spices like ginger and cinnamon. Apple and pears cozy up together with antioxidant rich, immune boosting cherries and cranberries for a colorful, sweet and tart, treat that is really satisfying. The crumble is bolstered by the richness of almonds and pumpkin seeds which add texture, satiating healthy fats and an added boost of nutrient density. A touch of maple syrup is all you need to accent this naturally sweet dessert that is honestly so good for you I would eat it for breakfast too! Bonus, you can swap the fruit depending on the season. Peaches, rhubarb, berries–they would all work beautifully in this recipe! Continue reading “{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler”

{Nourish} Wild Blueberry, Lemon and Hazelnut Quick Bread

Hazelnut Lemon Wild Blueberry CakeCake for breakfast makes everything better, right? We think so and that is why I whipped up a batch of my favorite gluten-free quick bread this week! We are still adjusting to our new kindergarten schedule. Wow, the hour we lost each morning makes a huge difference in our routine. I am setting an alarm clock for the first time since Hudson was born and let me tell you, I would far rather wake up to his voice and snuggles than even the sweetest of sounds my phone can muster. And, as you can imagine, breakfast is a bit more rushed than it used to be so creativity and planning have become a priority. A variation of this bread has been a staple in our house for a year or so and it has become the perfect make-ahead breakfast item for busy mornings and we can all feel good about eating it plus, Hudson thinks it’s cake so he gobbles it up without complaint!
