Yup – it’s a fact that if I am craving something, more likely than not, I want a warm cookie, a loaf of sourdough, or pie…hmmmm pie. But I digress. Of course, if I caved all the time to carb longings, my attempt at a healthy example for my kids would be blown. So, instead I spend endless hours trying to think of ways I can make “bread – like” items that fuel the craving and the body appropriately. Healthy muffins are one of my favs for several reasons. They are such a great grab and go for breakfast or snacks. I can sneak in lots of added “goodies” without anyone in my family noticing 🙂 AND they are EASY PEASY to bake – who doesn’t feel like mom of the year with fresh muffins cooling on the counter?
Danni and I get more requests for the “Athlete Factory” section of our blog, than anything else. It seems everyone is looking for a quick way to fuel their teen quickly and efficiently. We are constantly dealing with changing schedules and short turnarounds between school and activities, so we have made it our mission at Mojo and Moxie to bring you recipes that fit the bill. If your teen is eating two or three dinners in the car or at the sport / activity of the season you probably are faced with my greatest obstacle – BOREDOM. It is difficult to always be thinking ahead – to pack things that are interesting, healthy and satisfying AND that they will actually eat! With Danni filling you in on a few diet trends this week – I thought I would follow her info up with a recipe that is also PALEO. If you, or anyone in your family is following this particular diet – this recipe works for you too!
If you can believe it, we have gone the entire month of October here on Mojo and Moxie without a pumpkin recipe! WHAT? October is all about the pumpkin and here we are NOT posting our pumpkin favs. I’m confident you have survived the month and perhaps tried either Danni or my pumpkin muffins from Insta, so today I am going to push past the pumpkin and highlight the sweet potato. And – just a head’s up…Halloween is tomorrow night. If you are like me, you have your traditions of either baking up a batch of trusty “bat wings,” or ordering pizza. BUT if you are in the mood for a change, this recipe might just do the “trick” on a night full of treats! Continue reading “Feeding your Athlete: Spooktacular Sweet Potato Soup”→
