Fall is a stunning time of year – leaves are changing colour, the air is cool and feels purified, pumpkin spice is back in every form, and I can start burning my favourite fall essential oil blends, which, for whatever reason, only seems appropriate during this time of year.

Today’s post is inspired by my four-year-old, Scarlett. For whatever reason, when she woke up this morning, she was determined to make muffins! So, at 8 am, we pre-heated the oven, and the three of us got busy making Morning Glory Muffins with Sprouted Spelt Flour!
I really enjoy cooking with my kiddos. By doing so, I’m teaching them a valuable skill while making memories. I may not get on the floor and play with them like Daddy does, but I love getting them involved in the kitchen – that’s our ‘”thing”. Yes, Ruby just sits there like a little lump and chews on toys and spoons, but she’s very curious about everything that’s going on! At four, Scarlett now stirs, cracks eggs, measures out ingredients and licks batter off of mixing spoons. The whole experience is just so stinkin’ cute, really.
When it comes to coffee, I’m a bit of a snob – there’s only one way I like it, and it’s in no way conventional.
Yes, coffee with Coconut Oil Coffee Creamer takes a few extra steps, and when I’ve been up all night feeding the baby, those extra steps in the morning can be annoying, but once that frothy goodness that is coconut oil coffee hits my lips, it all becomes worth it.
Last week we came home from a week-long vacation from visiting the in-laws in Manitoba. Knowing that I couldn’t go a morning without my coconut oil coffee creamer, our first stop after we got off the plane in Manitoba was the grocery store to pick up coconut oil…. and limes…. for the Coronas 😉 Thank goodness our hosts had a Magic Bullet to complete the coffee-concoction!
Today’s post is written by fellow real-food lover, Lauren, from Blue Feather Spirit. I absolutely LOVE this Quinoa Pizza Crust Recipe that she’s sharing today from her new Ebook Blue Feather Food. I know all you Modern Hippies will love it too!
I’ve always loved pizza but have not always been in love with the effects of eating it. What I’m really referring to is the usual white flour (processed wheat) and yeast combo, which for me, has been the trigger for digestive and skin issues.
Thanks to the super grain, quinoa, I’m now able to enjoy pizza or flatbread, as I love to call it, and actually feel that my body is thanking me for eating it.
Quinoa is one of the few plant foods that contain nine essential amino acids. This means it’s an incredible source of protein, especially for vegans or vegetarians. Technically it’s actually a seed which is prepared similarly to a grain.
