I’m not one of those pumpkin-with-everything girls, but I do love pumpkin pie. This pumpkin custard is reminiscent of that, but it is gluten free, dairy free, and hassle-free! Just to show you how easy it is, I’m going to shut up and throw out the ingredients and directions NOW. No need to tell a cute story with it, though I will say this is a great dish to bring to a breakfast potluck in lieu of a sugary, carby insulin rocket. 🙂
Brussels Sprouts are some of my favorite things to eat because as a cruciferous vegetable, they aid in detoxification. They also contain a good dose of fiber, which is helpful in keeping blood sugar levels steady and keeping you feeling fuller longer. I recently learned they are one of the best sources of plant-based omega 3s, which means… improved brain health!
My husband and I make them two different ways, which are both delicious and filling.
I’m OBSESSED with my air fryer! This recipe was a hit with my kids.
Preheat air fryer to 390.
Mix 2 cups of carrots with 1 tablespoon avocado oil, 1 tablespoon honey and a dash of coconut aminos. Add a few shakes of salt and pepper, maybe some cayenne pepper for fun.
Air fry for 12 minutes. Open and shake the basket halfway through. If you’re feeling decadent, toss in grass-fed butter after. But they taste great as they are!
That’s it! Pure air fryer magic.
I strive to eat veggies at every meal, but typically, time works against me. I’m not great at meal prepping, though I should be. Dinners are always planned out ahead of time with the husband before he goes grocery shopping, but lunch as a work at home mom is tricky. “Mindful eating” is not my friend during lunchtime chaos. I usually do whatever I can to get the kids fed and the littlest down for a nap. By the time I get to eat, I want to shovel something crunchy and processed in my mouth and be done with it.
Enter the 7 Minute Supermom Saute. It’s fast, filled with superfoods, and helps me to perform as a supermom. Food is mood. I need my adrenals to be fully functioning throughout the afternoon.
