Cooking the day away..Recipe!

I spent the vast majority of the day in the kitchen with Liam yesterday.
We cooked up some wild rice and quinoa. Cremini mushrooms, kale, parsnips and chicken as well as a savory winter soup. The photo is blurry, but you get the idea.

I tend to spend at least one weekend day cooking up a bunch of complimentary ingredients. It sure makes meal time a lot easier when all I need to do is add a salad or some roasted squash.
I also make Liam's nut and seed milks up on my big cooking day. Coconut and hemp have been his favorite recently and super easy to make.
This is my favorite coconut and can be purchased at

What you'll need:

Organic, unsulphured coconut shreds, chips or flakes
Filtered water, warmed.
High speed blender (Love our VitaMix!)
Cheesecloth or nut bag

Optional Ingredients: Vanilla, cacao, cinnamon, honey or other sweetener.


Place 1 cup coconut and 3 cups warmed filtered water in to blender.
Blend on high for 2-3 minutes.
Strain through cheesecloth or nut bag in to preferred containers.
We use glass pitchers with lids found here:
  See, I told you it was easy and a huge money saver too!!
 Happy Sunday! :)
