OK,  I decided last night that I need to lose a little weight, not a lot. Just a little to get back into some clothes that I am not able to fit anymore. The clothes that I have are nice and I really want to continue wearing them again. So this morning I woke up early and was able to fit in a small dance workout online. Dancing to me is fun, and that is the one thing I continue to stick to when it comes to losing weight and working out.

I ended eating fruit for breakfast this morning with some chicken for my protein. Than after around the mid afternoon I wanted something light and decided to try out Amy's Organic Vegetable soup for a light lunch before dinner later on tonight. Nothing to heavy was what I was going for. Which would not give me a ton of carbs either.

To my surprise this Amy's Organic Chunky Vegetable canned soup was really, quick and easy to make on the stove top! Very tasty I might add. I don't really count calories since I don't believe in them. 😉 But if you do, it has only 60 calories. Not even 4 grams of sugar, 13 carbs. It was a little high on the sodium side, yet it was a quick meal and something I will not eat every single day.

However, it a good option to a quick soup that come out the pantry when you want good ingredients that are all organic and you don't have to slave over the stove. In just about 5 min It was ready to eat. Boom, done!

There are no trans fat, MSG, OR Preservatives, No GMO'S and its Gluten Free! Which is plus around here. I ended up buying more of these for my son, who likes to eat soup in a pinch.






Some of the ingredients are:


  • Filtered Water
  • Organic Tomatoes
  • Organic Spinach
  • Organic Corn
  • Organic Carrots
  • Organic Peas
  • Organic Onions
  • Organic Celery
  • Organic sea salt
  • Organic Black pepper

Ok, well this morning I decided to go on ahead and try out this packet of Wholesome Chow's Organic Gluten Free Scone Baking Mix. I ended up buying this packet awhile back and was in bit of a squeeze this morning and wanted something different to cook for the kiddies. If you do not know my second to youngest son is in the process of getting a series of tests completed to see if he might have any issues with gluten, wheat, and some other issues.

That is why I have been experimenting with different types of gluten free recipes that I can do on the fly and in crunch when I don't have to time to make everything from scratch 😉

That is why I love that Abes Market offers a food variety of Wholesome Chows line on their site, makes it easy to shop from.

Its, great because since this gluten free product already comes prepackaged I only have to add three to Four items to complete it.

Wholesome Chow is new company and was started by a couple who shared their love for vegan, gluten free, allergy okay food. A lot of times, I will admit this gluten free journey has been a bit of a learning curve, but fun non the least.

Anyhow, Wholesome Chows products are all Certified Gluten Free and Non-Gmo and Vegan Free. Meaning they are Dairy, Wheat, Egg,  Casein,  Nut, and soy free. Which is great for me because I like simple ingredients in which I can add more to it if I feel the need to.

So lets get started and show you how I made this Wholesome Chow Gluten Free Baking Mix:

First off the ingredients are:

  • Organic White Rice Flour
  • Organic Brown Rice Flour
  • Organic Potato Starch
  • Organic Evaporated Cane Juice ( really gives a great taste)
  • Organic Tapioca Starch
  • Aluminium Free Baking Powder
  • Non-Gmo Corn Starch
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Sea Salt


Step One:  Set oven to 375º and  grease a baking pan or muffin pat. I ended up just using a  sheet pan with parchment Paper

In a large bowl, combine the milk, apple cider vinegar and Oil, ( I used Coconut Oil.)

The Product gives you the option to use Dairy or any non-Dairy Substitute. Some people use Almond Milk, I prefer to use Raw Milk from the farm.


Step Two: I mix in  the Coconut Oil, and Apple Cider Vinegar 😉

Step Three: I ended up folding in the blueberries into the mixture and  also added a little bit of extra milk, just a tad.

The finished result baked at 375º for 18 – 20 minutes was really delicious! I have to say. I ended up melting butter and placing it on top to the blueberry scones.  It was really good, not to sweet just sweet enough. If you like things sweeter I recommend adding some honey to it on top or in the mixture itself.


But it does not need it… Honestly 😉


These scones were good, and I plan on re-buying much more from this wholesome chow company.  I would like to experiment around with using some different form of berries and maybe even chocolate chips added to them.



Finally its kid Tested, Mommy Approved!
