I pretty much find any excuse to eat kale. Can I get a kale yeah?! Haha, well if you're like me, and salads are kinda your thing, you're going to love this! It's SUPER simple and kalerageously delicious (think that term could catch on?). I've just recently started massaging the kale with dijon mustard + salt + lemon juice as opposed to my norm of olive oil + salt + lemon juice... If you like dijon, you'll love this recipe. The second best part about this salad is you don't need a dressing because of the dijon, salt and lemon juice! Ya, I know... pretty fantastic, right?! If you're not a dijon fan, just simply omit the mustard and massage your kale as you would normally with olive oil + salt + lemon juice. BTW if you didn't know to massage your kale prior to reading
Well, it must be the hot summer heat... I am craving mango like it's nobody's business right now! Either that, or I am longing for a tropical getaway (wink). And not to mention, who doesn't like a delicious smoothie bowl with only 5 ingredients that takes 5 minutes to make?! My other complete obsession right now is tahini. My hubby and I have noticed that lately we are putting it in everything, on everything... and yes, you guessed it. It makes a guest appearance in this smoothie bowl recipe. Now go get your smooth on and leave me a comment about how much you loved this smoothie bowl!
One word. OBSESSED! You guys, this is so easy to make and it's so so so delicious. My hubby seriously couldn't stop commenting on how much he loves this pie. I better hide a couple pieces because otherwise my chocolate pie monster will eat my pieces too! The base ingredient is.... drum roll please... AVOCADO! I know, I know, you're thinking, "what?! ew!" haha but seriously, you won't believe it. The crust is made from ground nuts + coconut oil and the filling is made up of only 8 ingredients! The best part is it's no bake, so you seriously whip it up and put it in the fridge or freezer. But maybe the even better part, you can make just the filling and have it as chocolate mousse! I mean, what dessert do you know that can be two desserts in one?! Avocados... you
After a long holiday weekend and a lot of hot summer sun, this Razzmatazz smoothie bowl was so refreshing and delightful! It was like a party in my mouth, the REAL firework shebang... I had never had dragon fruit prior to making this bowl; it was always something that looked amazingly gorgeous, and I've been longing to try it for a long time. I finally did it guys... and it's refreshing, not to mention such a beautiful piece of fruit. You can top this smoothie with whatever you'd like, but I used dragon fruit, papaya, blueberries, strawberries, pomegranate seeds, raspberries, and dried unsweetened coconut flakes. The smoothie itself only requires 6 ingredients. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Cheers!
Summa Summa Summatime! I don't know about you, but when it's summer, I look for any excuse to make a good (any kinda)salad. It means less time cooking in the kitchen + more time doing the things I love outside without sacrificing a scrumvittleyumptious meal (see what I did there?! wink). This chickpea chicksal (what my hubby calls it) is a great go-to for us, and surprisingly enough, the collard greens fill you up and keep you full because of their high fiber content. The salad is made with vegan mayo, red grapes, and pecans keeping this dish simple yet delicious. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
I'm just going to be real with you... I am a pasta snob. There, I said it, Ha! When I found out I had Celiac Disease, I thought, how the heck is an Italian intolerant to pasta and bread! I am so grateful that gluten free pastas have come such a long way, where really you (well I) can't even tell a difference *fist pump, high five! Getting off my pasta soap box, I wanted to try new ways to enjoy pasta other than with the traditional tomato sauce. This Mediterranean pasta features a hummus based sauce, wild, right?! It's so fresh and light, and paired with spinach + kalamata olives, this dish is sure to be on your summer menu. Did I mention that it only takes 20 minutes to make? Chyaaa.. *fist pump... again
Ohhhhh YUMMMM!!!! Who doesn't want cupcakes for breakfast?! Ok, ok, these aren't really cupcakes, but it's Saturday and we can let our hair down and have a bit of fun, right?! These "cupcakes" are a great grab-n'-go breakfast and just happen to be caked with healthy goodness... I don't know about you, but a cupcake that is healthy sounds like heaven to me! (and these are oh so heavenly!) Did I mention the peanut butter "frosting"?! So by now you must be drooling... here's my recipe!
Breakfast. I love breakfast foods... but quite honestly, it's the hardest meal for me to plan (especially now that my little guy comes first). Breakfast is such an important way to start your day, so making these little gems the night before is SUPER helpful. I just make myself a cup of (decaf) coffee and grab a couple of these (ok, maybe more than a couple!) and I have myself a nutrient dense + easy peasy breakfast. #winning
Hummus is always a good go-to snack to bring to your summer picnics + gatherings. Sure, you could go grab some from the grocery store, but I find that I like my hummus a bit more lemony, and since it takes nearly no time at all to whip up, why not make my own?! PLUS you can make lots of it and use it for other recipes throughout the week. Now that's savin' time people!
THIS. This is all you need this summer. I forgot how flippin' good this is until I made it tonight. It gives me alllll the feels. The sweetness of the peaches paired with the balsamic caramelized onions makes for one delectable match made in pizza heaven. And don't skip the Kite Hill Ricotta (check your local Whole Foods)... it is truly a nice addition. I could probably eat the whole container by itself in one sitting. And even better, this meal only takes thirty minutes! Ya, I know... right?! Enjoy, my pizza party people!
Summer is upon us, can I get a whoop whoop?! One of my favorite things about summer is the simplicity of throwing together a delicious salad that takes hardly any time to prepare so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside doing the summer things you love. This salad combines the sweetness of strawberries and pomegranates with homemade strawberry balsamic vinaigrette and marries it with the savoriness of a traditional salad to make this salad one of your new summer favorites.
These peanut butter chocolate chip energy bites are uh-mazing. With only 8 ingredients and packed with fiber + protein, they make a great grab-n-go breakfast, but also make a great afternoon pick me up snack and a great (healthier) option to indulge your sweet tooth at night. You can make these ahead of time and store them in the fridge for a few days to have breakfast made for you! Basically, these are a win-win.

The first thing that comes to mind, of course, is pumpkin; we’re all crazy about that lovely little (or big!) squash. But the recipe I am sharing with you today features its not-so-distant cousin, butternut, haha. Butternut squash is becoming more and more popular, and for good reason; it’s delicious and nutritious. So let’s dive into some of the health benefits of butternut squash. This squash has enough vitamin A in just one serving to cover your entire day! Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that plays a role in maintaining healthy vision, neurological function, healthy skin, reduces
