Thai Green Beans made on the stovetop with a delicious easy peanut sauce. These will be your new favorite way to eat green beans!
Look we all need to get our veggies in. It’s important for the bones, ya’ll.
I used to be really good about eating veggies at every meal but sometimes eggs and avocado toast call my name and then I eat chocolate for dessert and call it a day.
I’m only human.
Fluffy and delicious chocolate chip banana oatmeal muffins made with wholesome ingredients like Coach’s Oats, Greek yogurt and flaxseed meal. They’re perfect for a quick breakfast or snack on-the-go!
Hello, hello. Welcome to Muffin Monday. It’s been awhile, but I’m back with an outrageously delicious new recipe ready to power you through the week. But first, how was your weekend?
Tony and I watched the Chicago Air & Water show from our rooftop, cleaned our house (necessary and a little therapeutic), went to a BBQ with some friends, ate donuts and walked at least 12,000 steps each day. Oh and of course, watched a little Game of Thrones. Sunday traditions are my favorite. What are yours?
Now that we’re onto a new week, I want to chat about why YOU need to make these muffins. JUST LOOK AT HOW GLORIOUS THEY ARE.
Hi guys! Happy weekend. Grab your cup of coffee, it’s going to be a long one!
This past week: Oh my goodness it has been a WEEK. I just got back from a trip to Maine to learn more about wild blueberries. Unfortunately during my time there, I somehow came into contact with a terrible case of food poisoning from food at a restaurant. On Tuesday, I was stuck in my hotel room all day and night feeling like death. This was the first time I’ve ever had food poisoning, but can 100% say I never want to have it again. Such a bummer when that happens, especially while traveling!
The good news is I’m finally feeling better and ready to actually enjoy food again aka ready to bake my heart out, swing my cart around Trader Joe’s like a maniac, and crush kombucha like it’s my job. You know how I do.
These four easy, protein-packed bento boxes are perfect for a quick lunch or post workout snack on-the-go. Made with wholesome ingredients like Just BARE Chicken, fresh fruits, veggies and grains! PLUS a bonus post-workout dinner for your busy week.
Happy Thursday, everyone! I just got back from Maine where I soaked up every ounce of beautiful weather, lobstahhhh and blueberry farms galore. I was there on a press trip discovering all things blueberries, which include blueberry picking on actual blueberry farms. Have you ever been to Maine?! If not, start planning a trip because it’s incredible there.
The BEST cauliflower pizza crust — so flavorful and surprisingly easy to make. Low carb, nutritious, fiber & protein packed. Topped the crust with whatever your heart desires. You’re going to be making this again and again!
Remember when cauliflower came onto the food scene a few years back? Now it’s become so popular that it’s hard to find a restaurant that doesn’t have roasted cauliflower on their menu. It’s even mainstream enough that Trader Joe’s makes cauliflower rice AND cauliflower pizza crust (have you tried it?).
Abra, AK brand manager & the veggie loving queen she is, even likes to put frozen cauliflower in her morning smoothies. YOU CRAZY ‘BRA (that’s her nickname.)
We’re skipping weekend favorites because guess what today is? My six year blog anniversary! Truly I cannot believe it’s been six years since I wrote this post and then two days later hit publish. I had no idea what I was doing, all I had was a genuine feeling of excitement to be able to finally share recipes with anyone who who read them.
I knew I was doing what I loved from that moment on. Discovering baking, talking with you about my dreams, sharing my goals, going through a health journey and inspiring you has been all apart of this six years. And you’ve inspired me too. You’ve helped me grow and become the woman I am today. SO THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE! I LOVE YOU GUYS! xoxo
Spicy Roasted Chickpeas with a slight tang from Colman’s Dry Mustard and a kick from cayenne pepper. You’re going to love this protein-packed on-the-go snack.
You know what’s extremely essential for everyday life? SNACKS. There’s absolutely nothing that makes me happier than a 3pm nourishing snack that kicks hunger’s booty goodbye.
I love wandering into the kitchen for cup of coffee with a little almond milk, and a favorite snack. Most of the time I’m a sweet girl, but give me something a little crunchy, salty and crispy and I will bow down to the snack gods.
We’re back in action with full carts (and empty cupboards) at Trader Joe’s! While I did pick up my usual organic produce, baking needs, and Tony’s favorite sandwich meats, I had to balance it out with some fun new snacks and treats. As you all know I love to whip up homemade goods on the regular…but everyone needs some good grab-and-go’s, am I right?
Beautiful grain free pecan blondies made with a homemade DIY pecan butter. The MOST addicting fudgy blondies out there.
As I write this, Milly and I are sitting here watching The Incredible Hulk, my turkey chili is simmering on the stove and once Tony gets home we’ll settle in for our dinner and enjoy one of these incredible blondies (k maybe two). Read more.
