Need Healthy, Whole Food Recipes Your Family Will Love?

Healthy Whole-Food Recipes.jpg

We read the books, watch the shows, and hear the news–whole-food based diets are the best way to provide nutrients for our families, especially our growing children. Oftentimes preparing well-balanced meals can feel intimidating to busy moms, moms of large families, moms on a budget, and moms in general.

On a quest for healthy meals that are easily prepared, I started working through cookbooks. Here are a few of my favorites. The recipes are large family, budget, and child-taste-bud friendly:

From the Kitchen of Two Sisters: A Satisfying, New Approach to Slimness, Vitality, and Health by Danielle and Lindsay Voeller: For the busy mom, this book is very much open and go with recipes calling for rice milk, spelt flour, Bragg’s, flax seed mixture (in lieu of eggs), and natural sugars–no need to hunt down a substitution! I also own the DVD, which offers cooking and nutrition tips presented in a way anyone can understand. For my daughter’s 7th birthday, I made the carrot cake and the children enjoyed it!

Over the years, I’ve used the cookie recipes for travel, as the ingredients are wholesome enough to provide a healthy snack or even a convenient light meal. My daughters and I will bake up a large batch just before a trip and my husband, the road-warrior, says they keep him away from the drive-thrus.
