Turns out, camping is not that big of a deal and I don’t know what I was so worried about! We had a fantastic time and Aidan flourished in the outdoors! We had tons of fun cooking, floating the river, going on ATV rides, and Derrick even got out to do some fishing. What a […]
My sister-in-law is one of THE BEST cooks that I know. We always love eating her creations, and she recently has decided to go onto a Primal Diet, which is pretty close to Paleo. She switched her whole family onto it, including her 6 year old, husband and 9 month-old. Impressive! They invited us over […]
Let’s talk about camping. I remember in the good ol’ days with my family where we made a few periodic excursions up to the hills for a nice little “get away”. I don’t so much remember the camping as I do the pictures of grubby little Heather sitting with my parents, eating off of paper […]
In the post that I have about the Low Sodium French Dip Sandwiches I mentioned that I had a roll/bread recipe to use and that my friend requested the recipe. Well, guess what? I found the email that I sent her. I thought it would be fun to post it since it is kind of […]
Sometimes, you just have to eat out of the house. And more often than not, you want to go out for dinner. I figure, might as well soak it up now while we have an easy little one because who knows how our other future children will be! Because we brave this feat several times […]

I cannot believe that my little man is already a year old! We did a “Little Man” theme for his birthday, and I wish that didn’t strike such a cord with me – my baby has turned into a little man! I made little bow ties and head bands for the kids and we met […]
Did you know that you can eat at Subway? Very handy knowledge when you are traveling, so log that away for future reference! 6” Veggie Delite Sub – Only 280mg Sodium! White OR Wheat Bread – no difference in sodium 280mg Veggies – skip the jalapinos, banana peppers and olives. All others are 0mg Oil/Vinegar […]
I didn’t realize this for a LONG time, but right before meats get packaged, a lot of companies pump them full of a solution (with sodium) to help make them more tender. I checked out some labels and found out that this is not only with chicken, but also with (gasp!) pork! We thought that pork was the lowest in sodium of all meats, but as I was reading the labels, most were labeled with 12% of the total weight in the solution.
The take away? SQUINT at the label’s fine print to see what it includes, as shown in this snapshot from the article that I read on it:

I love the summer. I hate the yard work that it brings, but I honestly love the weather. Another thing that I love is the grill, ahem, grilled food I mean. I don’t BBQ – that is in my husband’s realm of expertise; which is another reason to love grilled food! Generally I prep and […]
Like I’ve said before, I’m a little addicted to fixing up some yummy bites for my little guy. However, it’s really easy to get stuck in a rut with the same things over and over – like my butternut squash and sweet potato oatmeal that I feed him almost every other breakfast. So, I like […]
