Commercial Canned Foods and BPA

We all eat canned food, it's something at we are all used to and comfortable with. It's super convenient and most of us couldn’t imagine doing without at least one item that comes in a can.  Canned foods have been around for generations so why is it a problem now?  The answer is a resin coating that lines the cans.  Almost all food cans are lined with a resin that contains Bisphenol A (BPA).  That means that BPA, an endocrine disruptor which can mimic estrogen, may leach into the food in those cans and then into the people eating that food.

Delicious Flourless Two-Bite Brownies

OK, these things are delicious and they also just happen to be gluten free.  I’d eat these babies all day long if I could.  The almond flour (also called almond meal) gives them that yummy brownie texture that makes your mouth want more!

Taco Tuesday with Homemade Re-fried Beans

Almost every week we have Taco Tuesday. Sometimes we have it as a vegetarian meal or sometimes I’ll include some ground turkey or beef cooked with a bit of chili powder. It is a great meal that kids love because they can add all the ingredients themselves.
