Power _ Oatmeal

Recipe: Power Oats

Power _ OatmealI love the idea of breakfast, and I’m great about making sure the kiddos get a balanced start to their day, but I’m not always good about making sure that I do the same for myself.   

Power Oats are full of protein and a great source of fiber, calcium and iron.  And there is an endless list of yummy add ins.   Our recipe is not only major mommy-fuel but the kids will enjoy it too!

Game Changers Meal Prep

Meal prep is everything.  I could end the blog post there.  Full stop.  Period.  However, let me explain further.  As a mother of two amazing kiddos, and the founder of Ecopiggy, LIFE IS FULL!  Meal Prep is a Game Changer for our week and our health.   Taking a few hours on the weekend to plan and prep healthy organic food for the week, ensures that when volleyball practice ends at 5:30 on Tuesday, and we are all starving, a nourishing dinner will only take minutes to heat and enjoy!


Dinner Dialogue Series #5

“Where does it all go???”  My son Alex always has questions.  He always wants to know how things work, why they work the way they do, what if they worked differently, and so on and so on.   He definitely keeps my mind exercised, reaching for answers.   Sometimes the answers lead us to asking further questions.


Family-friendly Protein Muffins!

How can we pack the most nutritional punch into our food and still make it delicious for the entire family? This is a question we ponder at Ecopiggy since we all wish to enjoy our indulgences but also make sure they’re full of healthy ingredients – a win win! Since baking is one of our favorite past times, we were excited about a recipe that is super tasty, gluten-free, vegan, lightly sweetened, AND power packed with protein! Yes, mighty lentils.   No one will even suspect their presence since they blend in so nicely with the batter. These muffins have gotten the thumbs up from us ladies, our kids, toddlers, and even my dog (chocolate-free of course!)
