This Grain Free Fig & Vanilla Granola fills the house with the most heavenly scent! I could make it everyday, just for that smell.  It is super easy to make, only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time and it is full of fabulous nutrition and taste.

I have many parents coming into the community who's kids are new to the whole foods world.  That is why many of the recipes I create err on the sweeter side. Making these homemade-whole food and gut healthy versions of processed foods a little on the sweeter side at first tends to make for an easier transition.  Once your taste buds are adjusted you can begin cutting back on the sweetener.  This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of honey.  You could use half of that amount and still get a great result.

 
Even with the full complement of honey and dried fruit, this granola packs a good nutrient punch and less sugar than the packaged variety. Full of fiber, protein and gut healthy fat it keeps blood sugar balanced and energy purring along.  It also comes with a full compliment of of micro-nutrients like potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A and K just to name a few!  A big upgrade to that box of Quaker Oats Granola that might have had a spot on your shelf before today!
 
I hope you will give this grain free Fig & Vanilla Granola a try, maybe even this weekend, and I'd love to hear your what you think.

Peachy & Blueberry Fruit Roll Ups – GAPS, SCD and Paleo

Another quick recipe to pack your child’s lunch kit full of whole food, gut healthy goodness! It doesn’t get much easier than this recipe with only a few minutes of hands on time you might not ever buy a fruit roll up again!

Using beautiful whole fruits of the season like peaches and blueberries make this recipe especially good and nutrient dense too.  The best in nutrient density comes from foods that are in season and as local as we can get them.  It is also a good way to use up fruits and veggies that might be getting a bit ugly.  My kiddo won’t touch a peach with brown spots but, put them into a recipe like this and no one is the wiser! He still gets the full nutrient benefits of the whole fruit in a form he loves!

This recipe is higher in fiber than many commercial varieties as it uses the whole fruit, peel and all.  Blueberries are also a pretty darn good source of fiber.  You can even add chia seeds to add Omega fatty acids!

I hope you enjoy these peach & blueberry fruit rolls ups as much as my family does.  Would love to hear your experience with it.
