Savory breakfasts don’t come natural to me, much less eating a full blown salad first thing in the morning. I grew up like most people I know eating muffins, pancakes, waffles and the like for breakfast, and always craving sweets.
I’m informally starting a muffin series here on the blog based on the seasons. It all start with that very request over on Facebook, and from there I started off with these Grain free Glazed Lemon Blueberry Muffins. Today we’re moving further into the summer season with ripe juicy peaches.

They had the best warm cinnamony flavor, sort of reminiscent of carrot cake, (which I have a healthier version of coming soon). And I thought those … Read More
I often find myself craving something sweet for breakfast, so I’m always working on new recipes to satisfy this craving and still be healthy. Nice cream is always a good place to start because it has the texture of ice cream and satisfies my need for something sweet, but it’s completely made from fruit. And really who doesn’t want ice … Read More
