Paleo Zucchini Banana Bread Bars with chocolate chips are the BEST way to enjoy a healthier treat when you have a sweet tooth. They also make a great snack since they’re packed with fiber and protein. 

WELCOME TO ZUCCHINI WEEK 2017. I’m so excited we’re doing this again!

If you’re wondering what in the hell zucchini week is, well it’s basically where I bring you zucchini recipes every day this week (except Friday). We’re talking snacks, breakfast, dinner and desserts.

I know you’re probably like, why zucchini week out of all the things?! Frankly because I know what it feels like to have a real out of control zucchini problem.

Juicy gluten free peach crisp with a crunchy pecan oat topping and a drizzle of the easiest homemade dairy free caramel. You’re going to LOVE this summertime dessert. Don’t forget the ice cream!

Hope the weekend is treating you well and you’re ready for some down time (and perhaps a little baking) the rest of the day.

If there’s one thing better than hanging out all day on the patio during the summer with a few glasses of white wine and a charcuterie board in front of your face, it’s definitely anything baked with peaches.

Delicious and easy 30 minute dinner for two: Chili Maple Lime Salmon Bowls with amazing mango & edamame mixed with sweet forbidden rice.

Lately, we’ve been loving salmon. It’s the BEST easy healthy meal out there, am I right?

Just the other day, I stepped into Whole Foods after a class at Crosstown Fitness. Usually I head there after my workout. Normally I shop at Trader Joe’s because it’s much cheaper, but Whole Foods happens to be incredibly convenient when I need last minute ingredients. Plus sometimes they have pretty good deals on produce (all the berries right now!).

Paleo and gluten free turkey burger sliders on sweet potato buns. An easy bite sized recipe or appetizer!

Did you know the official first day of summer was LAST week? I don’t know about you, but it has felt like summer here in Chicago for about a month now. I’ve been absolutely loving the heat, the longer days, and the chance to hang out on the patio with Tony.

We also have a bird feeder, so Milly likes to come plop her belly out and watch the birds too.

Tofu, Cauliflower, sweet potatoes, bell pepper, garlic, turmeric, ginger and simmer in in this coconut curry dish made in partnership with Nasoya Tofu. Vegan and gluten free too!

Over the past year I’ve become OBSESSED with curry flavors. Don’t ask this Puerto Rican girl why, but I think it’s because there is a Thai neighborhood just up the block. The exotic spices are aromatic and wander in and out of the streets. In a way, the smells are inviting me to come in a try something I’ve never had before, which is often what Tony and I try to do when we go out.

Lately it’s been all about that curry life. I love slurping up a big bowl of coconut curry from our local vietnamese restaurant Tank Noodle, or trying a spicy version over rice; not only is it comforting, but I feel like there’s something really healing about a good curry.

Baked coconut donuts with a sweet berry glaze. Easy to make and perfect for patriotic holidays like the 4th of July. I call these the All American Donuts.

Did you guys see my Instagram stories this weekend? I FINALLY got around to creating my little patio garden. I picked up a few plants on Saturday afternoon after my workout then spent the rest of the afternoon planting gorgeous arrangements on my deck before a storm rolled through. Guys, I’m not kidding when I say I had such a great time.

I still want to plant a few herbs and possibly a tomato plant, but we’ll get there eventually.
