Whole Foods Recipes

Power muffins: Jump start your morning!

Welcome to my recipe index, where you'll find frugal, healthy recipes utilizing "real" food ingredients and nourishing practices.  My goal is to add at least one recipe per week.  I believe you CAN eat healthy, real foods on a tight budget.  I find it's less costly to eat this way than if I were purchasing processed, ready-made foods for my family. 

We bake lots of healthy, soaked, whole grain breads, so you'll notice there are many bread and muffin recipes.  I grind my own grain; read about the benefits of freshly ground grain here.  If you are new to soaking the flour before cooking with it, I do this to make the bread more easily digestible.  Besides, it just tastes better when I do!

While most of the recipes here incorporate only traditional, real, "whole" food ingredients, there are times when I allow a nominal amount of sugar into my infrequent desserts.  If this concerns you, feel free to experiment with using honey or pure maple syrup instead.

Keep checking back for more ideas and recipes!
