Blog Love Friday! – 2015 March 20

Blog Love Friday

It seems that this week, I have been a wee bit obsessed with food. Most of the links will make you hungry … and will hopefully inspire you to try something new in the kitchen. I haven’t tried the recipes yet but I know I will. If you try any of them, please tell us in the comments!



Corned Beef & Cabbage Creamy Potato Leek Soup | Peanut Butter Fingers
I know that to some, meat in a can is a delicacy (Spam and Hawaii have a long history) and in history has been a life saver to many (especially soldiers); but if you have the option to go to a store or butcher, please buy fresh meat. Corned beef from our local butcher is one of my favourite meals and now with Julie’s Corned Beef/Cabbage/Potato/Leek soup, I know what to do with the leftovers.

Kale Salad with Avocado Tahini Sauce | Love and Lemons
I am so intrigued by this dressing – the creamy avocado and the nuttiness of the tahini – mmm.

Fig Bars | Sprouted Kitchen
It’s as if my beloved Date Squares and a Fig Newton had a baby. I can’t wait to make these!

Peanut Butter Cups | Earth and City
I believe Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have become an obsession with many. This looks like a great take on what has become a North American classic candy – I like the oat crust twist they have added.



The Grey Area | Fat Mum Slim
This is a good reminder that (within limits) there is no right or wrong way to parent. There is a lot of grey that parents wonder around in just to survive. I say ‘within limits’ since I’m not condoning abuse or excessive hovering. What is important to note is that it doesn’t matter if you breastfeed or formula feed; cloth diaper or use disposables; use a nanny or stay home full time; we are doing the best we can. The most important part is that we love our children and they know they are loved.



A Life Balanced & Busy | Lori Kennedy RHN
Earlier this month I attended the Wellness Business Summit produced by Lori Kennedy. A firecracker of an entrepreneur, her post describes that we can be busy and balanced. Just remember to schedule in time to be busy on your own well-being.


In the comments, please share articles that you read this week that helped you SPROUT some BALANCE! And remember to follow us and SPROUT a conversation on Twitter – @sproutbalance
