Delicious protein pancakes made in a blender with ingredients like potassium rich banana, protein-packed cottage cheese and oats! Nearly 20g protein per serving makes these the ultimate post workout breakfast!
Listening to the new Drake album gives me pure inspiration to get my booty out of bed in the morning, throw around twenty pound dumbbells at the gym (not literally throw) and make some legit protein pancakes topped with all da berries and nut butter.
Amazing fig and goat cheese pizza with caramelized onion, goat cheese and an easy homemade 100% whole wheat pizza dough made in partnership with Almond Breeze. Seriously sooooo good.
Well Monday, we meet again. After a weekend of binge watching 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and catching up on all things Healthy Glow. Co, I’m feeling a little bit better about life in general. Sometimes a little down time is all you need.
Golden chicken lentil soup made with creamy light coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, garlic, and cumin. Delicious flavors; this soup will be your new favorite!
How was your weekend? We had a lovely one over here with beautiful vibrant blue skies and 60 degree temps. Saturday night was even nice enough for us to grill out with homemade cumin turkey burgers, roasted peppers and plenty of wine to fill our glasses.
Last week was an entirely different story though. It was cold, rainy and I could never seem to get warm enough even when I was wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket.
The cure for having the chills? A comforting bowl of delicious soup simmering away on the stove top and devoured with your favorite crackers on top.
Who else is as much of an avocado lover as I am? *Everyone raises their hand*
Avocado toast has been a love of mine for as long as I remember, and even before I remember it being trendy to put on toast. In fact, my mom used to make homemade refried bean and cheese burritos for us with slice avocado on the side and hot sauce. The creaminess of avocado is as nostalgic to me as a big bowl of mac and cheese. Simply put, I’m in love with avocados and always will be.
Today’s post is pretty awesome because I’m sharing 16 ways to top your avocado toast in partnership with my friends at Avocados From Mexico. They asked me how I get creative with avocados and so of course I couldn’t help but share some of my favorite ways to switch up my avocado toast.
Scrambled tofu with delicious spices gets piled high into corn tortillas and topped with avocado, cilantro and so much more! Easy to make ahead and reheat for an on the go breakfast.
So let’s talk about vegan food for a second. First, let me start off by saying that you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy plant based food. Just because it’s vegan, doesn’t mean that it’s not delicious. In fact, often it’s more nourishing and welcoming for your body. So, I welcome vegan foods with my whole heart. I love enjoying plant based veggies, fruits and switching up what I’m eating.
Spinach and goat cheese quiche made with a scrumptious sweet potato crust that helps to hold the quiche nicely together without all the calories of a regular crust. Gluten free!
Well hello, hello and happy Monday. Hopefully you’ve had a cup of coffee or two and a chance for a slow morning before we dive into this tasty. You know the chance to ease into the day with a filling breakfast and a little inspiration. I start each day by waking up to Milly knocking something off of my nightstand, then I stretch, make coffee, lay out my clothes, make the bed, get dressed, brush my teeth, and if I’m lucky, unload the dishwasher before I head to my workout.
On the mornings I don’t get to do these things, I come home and feel rushed to get to work, especially if I’m developing recipes or have a heavy day of writing and editing photos. The slower and earlier my morning is, the better. I reserve sleeping in for Sundays.
It’s a routine that works well for me because I’m able to get in a heart-pumping workout, get a little organized and usually stay off my computer until usually around 8am. I’d love to hear your morning routine and what you enjoy. Perhaps you read? Catch up on the news? Make a delicious breakfast? Listen to a podcast? Tell me!
Strawberry Avocado Salad packed with heart-healthy fats, creamy goat cheese, toasted almonds and a light citrus poppyseed dressing. Like Panera’s salad — but so much better!
I’m headed home from a lovely trip to Arizona and the warm(er) weather. Tony and I had such a wonderful time in majestic Sedona — from the incredible hiking up to Devil’s Canyon to the midnight star gazing, it was everything we wanted. Thank you for all of your recommendations, I so appreciated them.
Every time I get back from traveling for awhile, I crave vibrant fruits and veggies to fill my plate. Because let’s face the facts: there’s always a 100% chance that my belly’s been full of a few too many carbs and on-the-go snacks that aren’t always the best choice (helloooooo fro yo topped with frosted animal crackers!).
Avocado pesto chicken salad made with an easy homemade nut free pumpkin seed & avocado pesto, then piled on toasted bread for a delicious, healthy sandwich.
Raise your hand if you LOVE pesto.
Okay good, me too.
And if you love it as much as I do, then you’re in for a little treat because this pumpkin seed avocado pesto is just incredible — it’s packed with healthy fats, lean protein and herbs and might just be the best thing I’ve ever tossed with shredded or leftover grilled chicken.
