‘Tis the season to do some baking! In a few days I’ll be turning off my computer, turning on my oven and baking a bunch of family favourites for the holiday festivities next week.
Dessert, in my opinion, is extra sweet when it’s homemade. I love to bake for my family, even though I have far from mastered the craft. I especially look forward to the warm and sweet aroma emitting from the oven, and filling the home with the smell of… home.
I can’t believe this is my first post since March! I’ve had so much to share but my time was taken with other things… my Spring was busy with design work (my other business is a custom cookbook design business, Heirloom Publications) and my Summer with in-person nutrition clients. All so great, but it took me away from my blog for longer than I anticipated.
Until now. I recently made these coconut cupcakes that were so delicious I knew I had to make the time to get the recipe up on here.
I recently wrote a blog post on Vitalia’s website about the possible underlying causes of fussy eating and what can be done about it. It is thought that fussy eating can be the result of nutritional deficiencies. One mom I know (actually, she’s my sister!) has fully embraced this theory and has been adding nutrients (while reducing common allergens and irritants) to her five-year-old son’s diet over the past six months. She has experimented with many different recipes and has now found several that her children absolutely love!
Here are the recipes that my sis swears by for fussy kids that are also gluten-free, soy-free, casein-free and refined sugar-free – or have the option to be! Hopefully this will save you some trial and error in the kitchen…
(And yes, in case you’re wondering, my nephew is not much of a fussy eater anymore! In fact, he lights up when presented with a delicious but healthful smoothie from Buddha-Full. So amazing!)
