Amazing low fat healthy banana bread made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil, protein packed greek yogurt and naturally sweetened with a touch of pure maple syrup. Everyone loves this bread because it can easily be made into muffins too!

I’ve discovered a sneaky little trick to making the best banana bread in the whole wide world.

It’s a combination of things you see. Quality ingredients, extra ripe, brown-spotted bananas, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a touch of natural sweetener and of course all the love you’ve got to give.

Speaking of love, did you know that baking for those that you love is good for your well-being?

Delicious veggie packed vegan black bean burgers with plenty of spices. I call these the ultimate black bean burger. Top with avocado, onion, tomato and a super addicting garlic tahini sauce!

30 minute THURSDAYS ARE BACK! Are you excited?!

I’m sitting in a cute little juice shop writing this post. The walls are white and the menu is a multi-colored rainbow. It really screams millennial, you know? They even have a smoothie bowl called the ‘Fruity Pebbowl’. It has something called blue magik in it.

WHAT THE HELL IS BLUE MAGIK?! Sounds cool, but honestly, what is it? Hold on a second while I go ask.

Healthy Blueberry Greek Yogurt Muffins made with whole wheat flour, greek yogurt, naturally sweetened with maple syrup and just a touch of heart healthy avocado oil (or coconut oil!).

Happy Monday. How was your weekend? MINE WAS INCREDIBLE! We had such an amazing workout + brunch at the Under Armour Women’s Chicago Brand House. I’ll have a full recap for you very soon, but just a HUGE shoutout to everyone who came to the event. You guys are literally the best & sweetest humans.

Now for your Monday… I feel as though there’s no better solution for a start to the week other than muffins.

You know me. The queen of the muffs.

WAIT A SECOND. NO.

Let’s stick with the muffin woman. Sounds much better.

Roasted sweet potato arugula salad is a perfect lunch or appetizer. Topped with a light honey mustard yogurt dressing with a hint of gorgeous turmeric color.

How are we all feeling after the long weekend? Relaxed and rejuvenated?

Ready for another 3 day weekend? *me too*

Yesterday I went on a 3 mile run because I woke up with a massive wine hangover and needed some oxygen pumped to my brain. What? Just being honest over here… the best way to cure a hangover is a little bit of exercise.

I’m backkkkkkk… and dang, what a trip! The weather was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Each day the blue sky sparkled without a cloud in sight while parasailers floated nearby. We played tennis, got massages, laid by the beach, swam in the infinity pool and drank WAY too many margaritas.

Of course, I’d have more photos to show you but my phone was stolen. Which was a little bit of a bummer, but then I said hello to the new iPhone 7. This little mama is happy.

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.

Banana bread pancakes that are perfectly sweet, fluffy and nutritious. Made with whole wheat flour and dairy free too!

Safe to say, I’m learning everything there is about being a first-time homeowner. Including when your oven breaks and you have to call the repair man to fix it. Who knew home repairs could be so ridiculously expensive?

Now that the oven is finally working again, I can get back to meal prep from the Healthy Glow Co. — that means these banana bread pancakes are on the menu this week.

Healthy gingerbread muffins that are incredibly fluffy, warm and perfect with a cup of coffee. One of my favorite muffins to enjoy during the Winter. 134 calories per muffin!

We spent the weekend inhaling Christmas cookies and eating more than I normally would. Isn’t it tough when you find yourself surrounded sugar, wine and allll the bread?!

*everyone nods yes*

Slow Cooker Taco Lentil Soup that’s both vegan and gluten free. You’ll love this easy meal packed with plant-based protein!

Currently writing to you from Detroit! I’ve been here since Friday hanging with my bestie Sarah while we bake, photograph, shop, drink Kombucha beer and jam out to Christmas music. I leave later today to get back into the groove of being at home for a while, working and recovering from turkey overload.

’Tis the season for Mariah Carey Christmas music on repeat while I sit in my pajamas and refuse to leave the house (besides grocery shopping and hitting up the gym).

Rainbow veggies roasted to perfection with garlic, olive oil and turmeric, then drizzled with a sweet and spicy chipotle honey yogurt dressing. Throw in some quinoa or enjoy with grilled chicken or salmon as a main dish!

Let’s talk about this whole Thanksgiving situation coming up. What are you making and what are your family recipe staples? I want to know because I’m always looking to add something new and exciting to the menu.

This year I plan on making my sweet potato casserole, cranberry orange sauce, some sort of cherry pie (OMG YES), buttery biscuits, a spinach pear salad and roasted butternut squash. Last year we tried Heartbeet Kitchen’s honey carrots, which were SO INSANELY GOOD I nearly ate them all myself.
