Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie from The Grain-Free Family Table


Going grain-free isn’t for everyone, but it gave Carrie Vitt her life back.

I was first drawn to Carrie’s story when I heard that she had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and got her life back through changing her diet.  As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I hear stories like this on a regular basis and it always makes me SO excited for these individuals and their families.  There is so much hope for the sick through a change in diet.

Shouldn’t eating be something to celebrate?

Here at Rooted Blessings, we believe that food should always be something fantastic to celebrate. And, there is no better time to celebrate nourishing, fabulous tasting food than summer time.  Eating food that heals can change your life!   I have got to be honest and share with you that I have never had a garden.  I’ve always had very small children during the summer months and learning how to garden seemed like too much of a chore.   [Read more…]

Hearty Lentil and Ground Beef Soup


Do you need a warm pick-me-up to get past the winter chill?

It is that time of winter, that time where I’m just itching to see that green grass start peeking out along the side of the road.  I can’t wait to see the trees and flowers start to bloom again.  I’m ready to go outside without my coat on and enjoy the sunshine tanning my arms.  Since it is still January and I live in the mountains, maybe I am in need of a tropical vacation somewhere instead.  I’m not sure it is quite the time of year to hope for the winter chill to be gone, yet.   The dead of winter isn’t going anywhere for a while.

Banana Chia Pudding Recipe


 Sometimes it is nice to have a sweet healthy, easy treat…

I really love it when I’m inspired in my kitchen to try a new recipe.  I had tried a chia pudding a few months back and though it would be fun to make a recipe of my own.  This month has been an interesting one food-wise for our family.

Somehow we ran out of money in our food budget halfway through the month. High winter prices, I guess. I still can’t figure out exactly where all the money went.  And, I’ve been scrapping by ever since.  The month ends in 5 days and I still have $11 left.  I have been pulling out all the stops and using everything that we have in our freezer and pantry.  I needed to find a recipe that was both frugal, easy, tasty and healthy.  [Read more…]

Summer Squash, Sausage and Chard Flatbread Recipe {Gluten and Grain Free}

I am always trying to come up with creative ways to feed my family.  There are five of us. Three of us are under the age of 5.  Although we have conquered much of our picky eating I do not have kids that will eat everything.

Let the truth be told that even though I claim to be a foodie, and I love to feed my family unprocessed and nourishing food.  I HATE MEAL PLANNING.  Actually, hate is really not a strong enough word.  I dislike meal planning and only enjoy cooking when everyone wants to eat it. (Isn’t that true for everyone?) [Read more…]
