Thanks for bearing with me while I was on vacation,. I stayed relatively unplugged (I said relatively) and it was hard to want to plug back in. But now I am back. Kind of. Buried under laundry, unanswered emails and a house that somehow seemed to get messy while no one lived in it. In short, I need a vacation from my vacation.
In other, equally whiny news (seriously, I was on vacation in Florida, and I am complaining about it) Florida was unkind to my waistline. Seriously unkind. And I haven’t really talked about it on the blog but I have pretty much cut out sugar. Oddly enough (but not really), that resulted in some nice weight loss. Yay!!
Except like a crack addict, I had a little sugar and all bets were off. Add in fried food including a dinner that consisted entirely of fried pickles and ranch dressing, and I feel like I need a cleanse. I just do not like how I feel when I eat that way.
So now that we are home and I am back in control of my kitchen we are back to eating the way God intended it. Clean.
I am not a huge ebook buyer. Or I should say I am not a big ebook user. Cause I actually buy the, but then forget to ever read or use them. Kitchen Stewardship’s Healthy Snacks To Go is one of the exceptions to that rule.
When you make the decision to cut out processed food, I feel like snacks are the hardest thing to deal with. I pack my kids lunches most days and quick and portable is the name of the game. And so Kitchen Stewardship’s Healthy Snacks To Go has become my snack bible.
And that was the first edition. THIS is the new and improved 2nd edition. I just downloaded it today but cannot wait to tackle the granola bars. They were a favorite before but now they are even better. And with my hubby downing power bars like there is no tomorrow, I need to make some for a fraction of the cost.
These recipes are easy for a “real food” newbie or if you are used to things that are sprouted (I’m not) there are adaptations for the hard core out there. The best part is that you are making great choices for your family, saving money by making things yourself AND it has a bunch of new recipes from the first edition so it is an even better deal.
The ebook costs $8.95 but to me it is priceless because I use it so much. Grab your copy and get to cooking! Click here to purchase.
I am an affiliate for Katie’s ebooks, but I don’t stand to get rich from promoting it. I just think it is an incredible resource that all families should have.
