Zucchini Pumpkin Muffins

My kids love to have baked goods for breakfast (and truthfully, I love that my 11-year-old can get breakfast easily for 3 kids while I feed the baby. The problem is that most store-bought muffins or breakfast items they want are full of sugar. I decided to start looking up healthier options so they get (sort of) what they want and I approve of the ingredients. The problem that I found is that lots of ‘clean’ baking recipes use a bunch of egg as a binder and end up with a texture that just isn’t quite right. You know the feeling when somebody takes a bite of something that you worked hard on and says “Oh, so this is healthy?” Crushing! I was determined to find a recipe that worked and still t

Transformation Story: April

We decided that since root is about building a community of people all working together to improve our health, wellness and well-being that we should start sharing some of your stories with each other, to motivate, inspire and connect each other.

Homemade Date Bars

I mean seriously, standing in front of the row of all the "good for you bars" at the store is enough to give my wallet heart palpitations! Have no fear- here is an easy, 5 ingredient hack on some of the most popular bars on the shelf. And if the idea of an energy bar or healthy bar scares you away, I promise these taste like a total splurge! Here's what you need: 1 cup whole dates, pitted (make sure they are nice and moist) 1 cup other dried fruit with no added sugar (my preference is Cherries or Cranberries) 1 cup raw almonds, or other nuts 2 TBSP nut butter of choice Optional add-ins: 1 tsp cinnamon or cocoa powder, shred
