Have I ever told you that I love biscuits?

Don’t get me wrong. I could go for some homemade granola any day, but when it comes right down to it, a warm, hearty whole wheat biscuit is just what I need to keep my spirits up when it’s 29 degrees outside and the young’uns are complaining that there’s nothing to do.

I could sit around for about an hour and pick apart every darn layer until I finally got to the bottom of the biscuit, at which point I’d finish off the meal and wait for someone else to wash the dishes.

Simple Homemade Baked French Fries

Believe me when I say, you need to make your own baked french fries. Not only are they way healthier than than the kind you pick up in the McDonald’s drive thru or grab while strolling through the freezer aisle, but they taste much, much better and you can control what goes on them.

I’d rather take eight minutes to slice and toss my own french fries in the oven than pay for the corn-syrup soaked ones you can buy for 99ยข at McDonald’s.

Delightful Whole Wheat Popovers

Delightful Whole Wheat Popovers | Natural Chow | http://naturalchow.com

I am going to be honest with you.

If after eating one of these popovers, you may feel slightly…overcome with a yearning to eat about nine more, at which point your friends and family will wonder whether or not they’ll get tackled if they grab one of the other two. Try to refrain from doing this at all costs.

Whole Wheat Popovers are one of those foods that make you want to do a little dance, for three reasons. (1) They are amazingly airy and delicate, (2) they are so easy to make that even a ten year old can do it, and (3) when you use healthy ingredients like whole wheat flour and organic milk and eggs, making whole wheat popovers can be a great choice for a healthy snack.

Whole Wheat Pita Pockets

Making something delicious doesn’t have to be hard, complicated, or cost a lot of money. All it takes is a little determination, and a great recipe. And boy is this a great recipe. Whole wheat pita pockets are practically a staple food in my house. We eat them on a weekly basis. And with such simple ingredients, they’re so inexpensive to make.


You can do all kinds of things with pita pockets. One thing I love to do is use the rolled and risen dough as pizza crust, for individual pizzas! It saves time and it’s even whole wheat.I usually like to put tuna salad in them, and I’ll throw in a little handful of sprouts if I remember to start them. (For helpful tips on making your own sprouts, I’ve located a quick and easy guide here.) Other times though I’ll cut it all the way open and slather on some creamy peanut buttery goodness, some raspberry jam (did you know that raspberry has a P in it?), and call it a PB & J Sammich. Heck, if I feel like it, I’ll use it like a tortilla and toss in some Mexican cheese, homemade “refried” beans, a little lettuce, you know, the works. [Read more…]
