This is a great, light meal I like to serve with toasted nut bread and fresh fruit.

3 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 pound Cottage Cheese
10 oz. Package Frozen Spinach (thawed and drained)
8 oz. Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Butter, Melted
3 Tablespoons Flour
Salt blend to taste

Combine all ingredients. Pour into a 9"pie plate. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour. Cool slightly and cut into wedges.

The Healthy Christmas Snack Protein Balls

As we roll into holiday cooking activities, I thought I would share with you a healthy nutritious snack that's fun to prepare with little ones.

The Healthy Christmas Snack Protein Balls

Prep Time: 30 minutes (15 minutes to mix, 15 minutes to roll into balls)
Basic Ingredients:
1 c. Natural Peanut Butter
1 c. Honey
1 c. Shaklee protein powder find at

Add-In Ingredients
(4 cups total, create your own combination!):
Sunflower seeds
Chocolate chips
Dried cranberries
Oat bran
Wheat germ
Flax seed (ground or whole)


Mix together the basic ingredients in a large bowl: peanut butter, honey, and protein powder. Add 4 cups total of the add-in ingredients. (Peanuts, oatmeal, and chocolate chips are a delicious classic.)

The more dry ingredients you add, the stiffer the mixture gets. You want the protein balls to stick together when you roll them, but you don’t want them to be so sticky that they won’t hold shape. Add more oatmeal, wheat germ, or oat bran if your mixture is too goopy. Add more honey (or water) if your mixture is too dry.

Roll the mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter. This is the tedious part—so get the kids involved! Refrigerate the balls (or freeze any extra). You can stack them in Tupperware and separate the layers with waxed paper.

~Pop a couple throughout the day when you feel concentration and motivation are low~

Baby Shower Gift Idea

When I first glanced at this picture on my laptop I thought the onesie was real. Actually it was designed and produced by Kristen McAsey. She does have a degree in fashion design but it's the message on both sides of the card (onesie) that is so powerful. This is such a great idea I thought I would share it.

"According to the American Cancer Society, prior to the 20th century, only 1 out of 8,000 
people in the United States were stricken with cancer. 

Since the Industrial Revolution the introduction into our lives of a myriad of chemicals, the incidence of cancer has increased to a startling 1 out of 3 people.

Since World War II, we have developed more than 80,000 chemicals for use in cleaners, 
pesticides, plastics, personal care products, industrial products and other modern day conveniences. 

We know very little about the effect of these chemicals on a child's development" -
