Holy Moly, It’s Time to Cleanse!


This past month has been a whirl-wind. I visited my dermatologist recently to have my moles checked. I'm quite molely and a few looked a little odd so I wanted to make sure they were ok. The whole ordeal was a little shocking and scary. In a small room, I sat in my underwear. My doctor shined a very incriminating light on me and sternly asked questions about my moles. "What do you know about … [Read more...]

Healthy weeknight dinners are a must! These scallops with warm arugula and tomatoes take 20 minutes and are delicious! thesproutingseed.com

I don't know about you, but as the days get warmer, my desire to spend time in the kitchen lessens. We've been enjoying long walks with good conversation and trips to the duck pond down the street. Recently, we even treated ourselves to bikes so we can enjoy a leisurely bike ride in the evenings! I've yet to attach Ezra's bike seat. Even though I'm pretty comfortable riding a bike, I'm a little … [Read more...]

And maybe some Brussels sprouts in the back of your crisper, just hoping to get … [Read more...]

Grain Free Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

This grain free strawberry rhubarb cobbler is so yummy! #food #paleo #dessert thesproutingseed.com

I never meant to make cobbler.  In fact, I never meant to make any sweet treats this week. Determined on Sunday, I told myself starting Monday, I'd not make (or eat) any dessert this week (I ate too many thumbprint cookies!). By Tuesday I was seriously rethinking my claim. Ezra and I were laying in his bed, reading stories before going to sleep and we happened to read his favorite book about … [Read more...]

doTERRA Essential Oils GIVEAWAY


It all started with a crying baby. Hour after hour, my sweet child was screaming due to acid reflux and a bloated belly. Over the counter medicines weren't working and the prescription drugs my doctor prescribed made me nervous--even he said to use it only as a last resort! Modern healthcare wasn't working. In tears I called my midwife and she rushed over. She poured a little coconut oil in … [Read more...]

Zoodles! Gluten-Free Zucchini Noodles with Meatball Marinara

Zoodles! Zucchini noodles and meatball marinara make a quick, healthy weeknight dinner. thesproutingseed.com

Who knew weeknight dinners could be so quick and fun!? For Christmas, I received a spiralizer--and it's been sitting in a box ever since. I've wanted one for a while, but it looked a little intimidating. And a little time consuming. Taking it out of the box took my toddler ripping into it one day (and me running over to stop him--those things are sharp!). Once it was out, I realized it was … [Read more...]
