I know a lot of families struggle with eating healthful meals or find themselves at the end of a long day with nothing planned to feed the tired and hungry mouths looking at them in anticipation.

    Bedtime Routine: Golden Milk

Now that we have officially made it to Autumn, I’m trying something new for our bedtime routine – golden milk. Golden milk is most often coconut milk, warmed with turmeric. This version includes a small bit of black pepper and a fresh ginger infusion, too. In the words of the boys, “Yum!”
