Avocado hemp protein smoothie bowl + banana-free smoothie bowl recipe round-up

Confession: D & I eat a lot of smoothie bowls. D eats them every single morning for breakfast and sometimes for a snack and I eat them every morning I don’t have to rush to work after a morning workout. Why do we love them? They are…

Wham bam, thank you ma’am juice

The name of this is a bit of a misnomer if you’re thinking in the traditional sense. I could have named this flu-blaster, cold remedy, green goddess, glow like a god-damn firefly juice, but my cheeky side just wouldn’t let me. This juice will leave your taste buds and your body satisfied. It’s super fast to whip up, packs a mean punch of healthy vitamins & minerals, and is loaded with flavor. And no messy regular juicer clean up! Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am. You are welcome.  Continue reading Wham bam, thank you ma’am juice

Grinch mint magic layer bars (raw, vegan, grain-free)

I am typing this post noting that my computer has more food on it than is in my fridge. Mmmmmm maybe it’s time for a little clean. But then I think of these bars and think the fact that I dropped the cacao powder all over the kitchen while making them was indeed, worth it. (Note to self: Dry hands before handling baking goods).

Lemon lavender truffle bites (raw, vegan & paleo)

Sooo I might have been on a bit of a lemon kick. My recently posted gateway-to-chia lemon raspberry parfait is now one of my favorite summertime refreshing snacks.  Lemon is so freaking versatile. Put it in your water for some added flavor. Add it to desserts or savory dishes. Add it to homemade cleaning products.  Annnnnnnd as I was experimenting, it even goes with lavender. Like, really goes. Like honey in my tea. Or the jam on my toast. The peanut butter to my chocolate. Like that kinda goes. Continue reading Lemon lavender truffle bites (raw, vegan & paleo)

Lemon raspberry chia parfait

So let me start off by saying that I was not a believer when I first heard of chia pudding. I never ate a ton of pudding as a kid, unless it was in the form of a popsicle. But this refreshing lemon and berry chia pudding parfait with the crunch of macadamia has won me over. Continue reading Lemon raspberry chia parfait

Pineapple avocado salsa

Tropical fruits are consuming me! I cannot stop eating them. Has that been happening to you guys lately with the sun heating us up and keeping us up later? For me the summer time is all about sweet and tangy refreshing fruit cocktails, salsas, and salads. And I loooove juxtaposing flavors so the sweetness of the pineapple with the spice of the jalapeño and cooling cilantro are totes floatin’ my boat right now.  Continue reading Pineapple avocado salsa

5 easy steps to dress up your salads + simple Spring strawberry basil salad recipe

A little while ago I read a former teammate and Facebook friend’s post that read something like “Lunch isn’t as exciting when you have a salad.” Cue the jaw drop, the eye bug and the gasp. SAY WHAT?!?! That is the absolute opposite of how I feel. And I eat a lot of salad. Every. Single. Day.  Now I am not talkin’ bout no iceberg lettuce with mushy tomatoes and celery with a bland (and probably overly sugary store-bought dressing). I am talking about flavor and texture packet salad that you get excited to eat when you open up your to-go container at lunch. Make all the other kids jealous and bribe you to swap their soggy sandwiches with your gorgeous salad by checking out these tips.   Continue reading 5 easy steps to dress up your salads + simple Spring strawberry basil salad recipe
