Simple Strawberries and Cream

By Sarah Higgins | June 28, 2018

  Ready to stop being so hard on yourself? Relax with confidence while you satisfy your sweet tooth with organic strawberries and homemade whipped cream.  You know it’s true, keeping things simple is oh so sweet’n’easy.  Sometimes you just want to stay out of the kitchen, right?   Buy ’em fresh, buy ’em local or pick ’em yourself and then carefully wash  your berries. Slice and layer in a glass dish.  Add whipped organic heavy whipping cream, or better yet, whip up some organic coconut cream! To make the cream, use a cold and bone dry bowl. Use either the whisk attachment to your electric mixer, or use a hand blender with an up and down motion until the cream thickens to desired consistency.  What could be easier? Now, go enjoy yourself!   I made you something! Add your email and get my free guided relaxation audio download + monthly recipes, tips and the inside scoop on my healthy lifestyle offerings.

Sugar Free Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

By Sarah Higgins | June 13, 2018

You can have your cake and actually not feel guilty eating it! I get it-food is something we all get a bit emotional about. Take the lemon poppy seed cake my mom used to make every year for my birthday. After switching to eating sugar free and low carb, I thought I’d never taste that burst of flavor in my mouth again! Guess what?! I’ve cracked the code and now you can enjoy your very own delicious and sugar free, lemon poppy seed cake.  My mouth just watered. This cake is great for brunch, and if you’re looking for another beautiful side dish, try out these gorgeous marinated tomatoes. Here’s How: Mix dry ingredients: 1 1/2 cups almond flour 1/2 cup coconut flour 3/4 cup granulated monk fruit (I like Lankato) 2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp Xanthum gum (I like Bob’s Mill) In separate bowl, mix wet ingredients: 1/2 cup softened butter 3 large eggs 3 TBS lemon juice 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 cup sour cream (this is optional and will give you a much moister cake, which I...

I’m gonna let you in on a little secret of mine…potlucks bring out my competitive streak. There, I said it.

Keto Roasted Chicken

By Sarah Higgins | January 5, 2018

Not only is roasting your own chicken tasty af, it’s also easy on the family budget. If you’ve never done this before, it’s really not that involved-I was super surprised how easy and fast the whole process was my first roast around. The best part about roasting your own chicken is that you get to make your own chicken stock or bone broth, which is like your kitchen elixir-the secret sauce for every other awesome-sauce you make during the week. Now, there are oodles of ways to roast chicken and I’m certainly not an expert.  I just think I’m a pretty good cook.  And maybe that’s exactly what the unlisted ingredient is here: confidence. Confidence in the kitchen will make the love burst through in your flavors, plus confidence just puts everyone else at ease, amiright? Here’s my go-to method for fast, simple, and lip smacking chicken the whole family loves. Ingredients: One whole chicken, gizzards optional. This recipe does not include gizzard instructions yet-that’s a future post because I’m still experimenting. And yes, I like to eat the gizzards.  Buy the...

keto thai soup that’ll keep you warm when it’s freezing outside

By Sarah Higgins | January 5, 2018

Every time I experience the bone chill of a winter cold snap I crave hot things like mugs of buttery coffee to wrap my hands around. Fuzzy blankets to drape over my shoulders and  spicy things to slowly slurp. Here’s a recipe that reminds of me adventuring to a tiny little family owned restaurant in Saint Paul on blustery midwestern evenings to eat Thai food with my parents. My dad, bless his soul, almost always went for the soup which was a bit beyond my mild spicy tolerance.  Not anymore, my taste buds have evolved. He’d be so proud.  This soup is best prepared over two days if you plan on roasting your own chicken. I find the flavor really pops when I let the chicken completely cool before adding to the soup. Pro tip: Make your own chicken stock to use in the recipe for added depth and flavor. This soup can be adjusted to meet your flavor preferences. Want it with more kick? Add some lemon grass. Want it a bit more mild? Back off on some of...

Cranky Mom Mood Booster

By Sarah Higgins | May 22, 2013

Kids are so tuned into our moods-so when we get cranky we gotta do something ’bout that. Start by being realistic.  Keep your self care practices short and simple, like this breath practice. Choose a spot that isn’t covered in legos, burp cloths, or animal hair. Whatever-let’s be real. Set  timer for 5 minutes to take off any  irritable edges of “one more thing to do”.  The point is to do it and get it done. Like the dishes, yo. Get as comfortable as your stiff nursing, baby wearing shoulders and tight IT band will allow. Become aware of YOUR body, not the ones attached to, or crawling all over you. Use your supermom listening skills like when you  check in on your napping baby. Focus on your inhales and exhales, not the baby’s. Just keep your attention on your breath. Your Breath, not Sore Breasts. Anything  and everything you observe about your breath counts, and there is no right or wrong way. Try not to induce panic at this point. Say to yourself:  my breathing is deep enough and good enough. Say to yourself: I’ve...

Under a lot of stress? If you’re a mom, then the answer is YES. Nothing ages you faster than having kids. And then add on layers of chronic stress and lack of shut eye and you’re pretty much doomed. You’ve got two choices; skip the self care of just get ‘er done. So pull up your mom jeans and get a grip with  3 easy things to help you chill better than Netflix and a bottle of wine. Follow your breath for as long as you can. Back of your mind, multitasking momma bear that you are, now you also are in a constant state of observing your breath.   Obvi- you won’t always be aware.
