Tiffany is passionate about real food on a real budget, and considers herself blessed to be able to share this ministry with her readers.

Whoever coined the saying “motherhood should have come with an instruction booklet” wasn’t kidding.
Just imagine for a moment that along with social security card paperwork, insurance paperwork and birth certificate paperwork came a little booklet that offered the following:
- Teach kids how to like beans!
- Overcome the fear of creamy white foods!
- Make vegetables as popular as fruit!
What a blessing that little booklet would be!
Unfortunately, when it comes to feeding our children healthy, nutritious food, one-size-fits-all solutions to our problems don’t exist. Every mother, every child, and every meal is different. And all three can present unique challenges of their own.
As a frugal real foodie, I want my family to eat wholesome food that isn’t filled with artificial ingredients and processed additives – and I want to do it all while staying within our grocery budget.
As a homeschooling family, I know it’s important that kids get enough nutrients so their brains can properly develop.
As a mom, I want the best for my kids. Even if that means getting a little creative and even downright sneaky at times when it comes to their nutrition.
What would the kids say if you offer them a strawberry cheesecake smoothie for breakfast – would anyone object?
What if it was an apple pie smoothie? Nut butter and jam? Pumpkin pie?
Or better yet, if snack time meant they were getting a bar that tasted like peanut butter cups? Thin mints? Almond joy?
What if I told you moms that these smoothies contained cottage cheese, yogurt, beans and vegetables?
And that the bars contained no added sugar, healthy fats and could be made in just minutes?
“High Protein, No Powder” has become the solution to getting my family to eat healthier foods without sacrificing taste or blowing our grocery budget. It’s the only eBook that explains the dangers of typical protein bars and protein powders, teaches how to make healthier smoothies and snack bars and includes 34 delicious recipes to help you eat better foods, right now.
The recipes in this book are suitable for nearly every food allergy. Each recipe is
My kids think the protein bars are a dessert and beg to eat them whenever they’re in the fridge. I’m finding myself making double batches of smoothies because they’re drinking them faster than I can make them!
“High Protein, No Powder” isn’t the motherhood instruction booklet that many of us wish we had, but it’s a great resource for the mom who is simply trying to feed her kids good food with a few less battles along the way.
