Grain and Nut Free Granola from The Paleo Kids Cookbook

Grain and Nut Free Granola from The Paleo Kids Cookbook by Jennifer Robins | www.VibrantLifeArmyWife.com

I was never much of a cereal eater growing up. I’d have the occasional box of Fruit Loops (or “shoe poops” as I called them) when camping, but generally my mom wouldn’t let us eat cereal because it was too “sugary.” Man, my mom was a smart lady. I should say is a smart lady because she’s still pretty smart.So it wasn’t really until college that I started eating cereal. I don’t know what it is about cereal and college but they seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly, or bacon and eggs, or cheese and anything else. I’m guessing it’s that it’s so cheap and that you don’t have to do anything to prepare it that appeals to the poor lazy college kid. At least I think that’s why it appealed to me. That and that it was easy to munch on during late night study sessions or on the bus on the way to class in the morning. Continue reading

Chocolate Chip Pancakes: the perfect deployment comfort food

The perfect gluten free, grain free, nut free, paleo Chocolate Chip Pancakes. | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com

So I have this thing that I do whenever my husband leaves… Whether it’s a quick trip to NTC, a TDY for some special school, or a full on deployment, when I get home after dropping him off I make a big batch of chocolate chip pancakes. I have no idea what prompted this tradition, but for the last couple of years without fail, I have made chocolate chip pancakes every time he’s gone somewhere. And he’s been gone A LOT. Every time that is, until this last time. Continue reading

I love creating and photographing recipes for you guys, but I don’t always love the writing about them part. I know, I’m a blogger who doesn’t always love to write. Writing is just not my forte; never has been. And sometimes I just can’t think of anything to say about a recipe besides “you should eat this because it tastes good. The end.” Continue reading

Homemade Dairy Free White Chocolate

Skip the vegetable oil laden store bought white chocolate chips and make your own instead with wholesome real food ingredients | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com #glutenfree #dairyfree #paleo

Around this time last year I made some homemade white chocolate with the goal of using it to make peppermint bark. I LOVE peppermint bark. It’s one of my favorite holiday treats. But I just didn’t feel good about consuming the white chocolate normally found at grocery stores since it’s typically made with vegetable oils, cow’s milk powder, and refined sugar, none of which are high quality I’m sure. Sure, you can find decent white chocolate chips out there (like this one), but they are hard to find, expensive, and still contain dairy and soy. Continue reading
