We're glad you're here! On this extension of the momsAWARE website, you'll find recipes and instructional videos to help you cook "outside the box" of processed, pre-packaged convenience foods.

The Andy Bar is a grain-free, sugar-free energy bar that tastes like a candy bar. The sweetness comes from the dates. The nutrition comes from the chia seeds, soaked almonds, ginger, coconut, goji berries, and a whole host of things you can add to the recipe. We've found these bars to be appealing to everyone, even those unaccustomed to a fructose-forsaking diet!
A great substitute for mashed potatoes!
- 2 heads cauliflower
- 1/2 c. chicken broth
- A few garlic cloves, pressed or minced
- Boiled chicken (a little goes a long way)
- Basil (dried is fine)
- Salt and pepper
Steam cauliflower until very soft. Combine with chicken broth. Add garlic. Add boiled chicken and puree (a stick blender works great for this). Add basil, salt, and pepper to taste.
