No bake vegan and gluten free cherry cheesecake bars with a chocolate almond date brownie crust made in partnership with Northwest Cherries. Made with healthy fats, naturally sweetened and SO easy to make!

November has arrived. Which means my wedding is almost here. I can’t believe it. I still remember the day we got engaged like it was yesterday.

THANKFULLY we aren’t taking our honeymoon right away, but instead plan on taking a small mini moon, then coming home and simply relaxing, celebrating Thanksgiving with our families and being officially husband and wife.

No bake superfood brownie energy bars packed with pistachios, pecans, walnuts, chia seeds, coconut and dried fruit! Topped with dark chocolate and sea salt. The perfect nutritious healthy dessert.

I’m sitting here watching the latest season of Stranger Things, staring at photos of these brownies and thinking how much I absolutely adore them. I’ve made them at least 10 times within the past month and still can’t get enough.

So I’ll just get this out now:

YOU NEED THEM IN YOUR LIFE! BADLY.

This veggie packed turkey bacon quiche is a protein packed breakfast that’s GREAT for meal prep! Make it and then enjoy slices all week long with hot sauce & avocado on the side.

As you may or may not know, I had the BEST weekend ever with all of my bridesmaids for my bachelorette party in Scottsdale, AZ. It was such a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend full of amazing conversations, girl time, hiking, tacos, margaritas, guac + all the chips. I swear to you, my belly needs a break from tequila for a while.

Just keepin’ it real.

Guysssss. Can you believe that there’s only about 6 weeks to go ’til my wedding?

I have to admit that planning our wedding has been a weight of anxiety, excitement and anticipation hanging over my head the past 6 months. While I’m certainly looking forward to our day, I’m most looking forward to just being married. You know or whatever married people do. Netflix and chill? Travel the world? Slurp noodles like in Lady and the Tramp?

AMAZING skillet brownies made without grains, gluten or dairy. These super fudgy walnut brownies taste just like the ones from your childhood. Bonus: They pack plenty of good for you omega 3s thanks to walnut butter & chia seeds.

It’s about to be a happy monday (I hope) because I’ve got some pretty AMAZING brownies for you.

First though, how was your weekend?

I feel like I can’t start this blog post without saying that my heart goes out to those in Florida and the Caribbean islands who were hit by Hurricane Irma. I sincerely hope that this recipe brings you a little joy to your day, even if it’s just a little smile. Most of all, I’m thankful that you’re okay.

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.
