{Guest Post} Family Fresh Cooking

 There are so many gifted and wonderful bloggers I follow and avidly read.  It was so difficult to narrow down the bloggers to a handful to post for me while I'm gone.  One blogger, Marla from Family Fresh Cooking,  has just launched an amazing new challenge, #projectlunchbox, that really fits what I feel is important; healthy foods for our children and families.  I am beyond excited to introduce Marla to you!!

-Family Fresh Cooking-

Hi everyone! I am Marla and my blog is called Family Fresh Cooking. I am so excited to be guest posting here today on Epicurean Mom! Katie and I have a lot in common. In her about page she says “There are two things I love most in life; family and food ~ usually in that order.  This blog is dedicated to both.”

Ditto for me! You couldn’t have said it better Katie.....

I love creating healthy recipes for myself and my family. I use the freshest whole food ingredients possible and try to limit refined sugars. Mindful balance is key to great moods, high energy & BIG *smiles* By the way the recipe on the top are my Strawberry Rhubarb Parfaits.

In our house we all love to snack all the time...sound familiar? There is always a refrigerator door open, a pantry door to be closed. I like to have healthy delicious snacks available for us to munch on. It is also great to have a bunch of extra on hand for lunch boxes.

Speaking of lunch boxes, I would love if you joined us for Project Lunch Box. A 30 day challenge to inspire all of us to pack healthy, homemade lunches for those we love. You can link up your blog over there as well.

Let’s get started with some quick, easy and healthy snacks shall we! Here are a few of our favorites:

Since we are all self proclaimed epicures here you might like my twist on classic scones. How about baking up a batch of gluten free-vegan Avocado Scones? Don’t let the avocado scare you, it’s as good in sweets as it is in savories!

Muffins are always a favorite too. Perhaps you might like Pomegranate Blueberry Coconut Muffins....

With Halloween around the corner you might be craving everything pumpkin. We love these mini Pumpkin  Chocolate Oat Muffins

Fruity popsicles are always fun. These are my latest Tutti Fruitti Chocolate Coconut Pops.

One last treat that is a favorite any time of day are my Lemon Ricotta Breakfast Cookies. An added bonus is that they are also gluten free. These cookies had a special feature on Bridge Street News in Syracuse NY earlier this year. Yes, that is me on TV...please be kind, OK?!

Thanks for having me visit your wonderful blog Katie!

It was great to meet you all! Please stop by my blog anytime to say *hi* I love company! We can also stay in touch via Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Instagram and Pinterest
