Let’s kick the year off to a healthier start with these 10 delicious grain-free, real-food recipes!
With last year just recently in the rearview mirror, I thought it would be a good time to take a break and look back at some of the goodness that I’ve added to my blog over the past year. Last year, I focused on desserts, but this year, I thought I’d take a healthier turn. Not that I don’t try my best to make my desserts as healthy as possible…

#2 Easy Homemade Yogurt in the Instant Pot
Step-by-step how to make Easy Homemade Yogurt in the Instant Pot! You’ll never go back to those silly yogurt makers.

Nourishing and full of probiotics, these paleo and refined-sugar free Kombucha Lemon Gummies are the perfect healthy treat!

The kids never know what hit them. Haha!
