I'm currently on Day 25 of a Proverbs 31 study that is life changing.
It's amazing what God will do when you ASK him to move in and help change your heart, your mind and how you live your day to day life.
I've been feeling "less-than" in so many areas since becoming a mama, and I've really needed to call on him and let him take over. I've wanted to improve how I take care of my home, how I love my husband, how I mother our son, how I pour into my relationships and serve others and how I go about my work.
The Proverbs 31 woman always intimidated me, but by doing my current study (with the book Becoming The Woman God Wants Me To Be) I see now I don't need to be perfect. I just need to be OPEN to allowing God to motivate me. Strengthen me. And empower me to improve in all areas of my life.
Just twenty-five days in, I'm feeling the challenges. The changes in my heart. Some things have not come easy, but I do feel a higher sense of peace. Of joy. To get up each day. To care for my home and our little family. And that is what is so life changing. When you align your hopes and actions and daily tasks with God, even the tiniest mundane things can feel joyous and purposeful.
One of my goals was to get BACK into the kitchen like I use to and create healthy recipes for my boys. These Carrot Zucchini Muffins were a hit this morning and we have leftovers to munch on through the week!
Carrot Zucchini Muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your muffin pan with 12 paper muffin cups.
In a medium bowl whisk together GF flour, cream of tartar, coconut sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
Add in avocado oil, applesauce, eggs and vanilla and whisk until well combined.
Stir in shredded carrots and zucchini. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
Divide batter among prepared muffin cups filling each cup nearly full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack. Store muffins in an airtight container for up to one week.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
