One of the latest food trends - Gluten Free - which is not just a trend but a serious health issue for many, is often being viewed as "healthy for everyone." And that couldn't be further from the truth!

We have a super simple and healthy recipe we’ve been itchin’ to share with you!!! As two crazy-busy passionate moms, we’ve been known to fuel our bodies with processed junk. Like those days when we found ourselves at Starbucks twice in one day…or driving through Taco Bell for dinner...again.
We were starved for time, low on energy and just….overwhelmed.
Can you relate?
Well, we discovered something that quickly changed our lives— green smoothies. This blended drink of fresh fruits and dark leafy greens gave us energy, a fast healthy meal and transformed our bodies from the inside out. No joke. And our free 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge is how we made this healthy habit really stick for the past 2 1/2 years... and going strong. Now we have over 500,000 people from all around the world hooked on the green smoothie lifestyle too. We hope you’ll join us!
I've got a new recipe for you today that's technically part of my baking series. But no one will mind if you don't actually have to bake them in the oven, will they? I'm personally a big fan of skipping steps (i.e., saving time) in the kitchen, so I'm excited to share these new No-Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars with you today that my girls absolutely LOVE. I'm talking dance around the kitchen love when they see me making them. :)
One thing is for certain - croutons are just all around good stuff. And thankfully homemade croutons are super easy to make with whole-wheat sandwich bread and SO yummy. Talk about an extra special and unexpected addition to your dinner salad. My kids go nuts over these things, and I honestly have to do what I can to stop them from just eating this crunchy goodness plain so we can actually enjoy them with dinner. After you try this recipe, let us know what you think in the comments!
It's easy to see why I'm a fan of LÄRABARS. With most of their flavors weighing in with fewer than five ingredients, all of which are natural and things I would cook with at home, it's a snack I feel good about giving my family.
I hear from readers quite frequently who would like to cut out processed food, but are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. The key thing to remember is that small changes can go a long way - cutting out processed food doesn’t have to be all or nothing! So to help you get off on the right foot this New Year below are 5 easy changes you can implement this month. In fact EVERYONE could start #1 today. It’s easy, it’s free, and it’s all about awareness. Pick 1 or 2 items from this list and commit to starting them this week. Once you’ve got those items down move on to the others, and before you know it some of these changes will become your “new normal.”
