Banana Nut Bread Protein Bites

Banana Nut Bread Protein Bites

I'm not really sure why, but for the loooongest time I stayed far away from no-bake snacks and desserts. I was kind of intimidated by them because when I heard "...then use a food processor.." I would stop there. I love baking/cooking/inventing, but when it comes to messing with appliances, I'm kind of the worst. I've messed with food processors before, (like when I made this super tasty creamy roasted garlic hummus), which worked out great, but then the next time it just started smoking?? I don't know. I blame my previous clean up skills. There are just SO many parts, I'm sure I put one back wrong. So, just as I was accepting my basic appliance fate, everything changed + I was shown the light. My saint of a mom got me this super…

Sweet + Fruity Watermelon Pizza

Sweet and fruity Watermelon Pizza

As I told you before, I'm huge on making plays on typical foods in unusual ways. I actually made two variations of these pizzas. One savory and one sweet. I did that once before with butternut squash in college and made a competition post of some sorts (check back on my beginner blogger skills if you want to check that recipe out), and had the same plan to do that here. However. Something happened… I could not decide which I loved more. SO, in spirits of not playing favorites, I’m giving each watermelon pizza their own posts. Because they REALLY deserve it. [Check out the Savory Watermelon Pizza post here!] This kind of recipe is my favorite when I need something to bring along to group events. Summer is hot and in full swing,…

Savory Watermelon Pizza

Savory Watermelon Pizza

  If you're one of those people that is very technical on food names, I feel ya. However, hear me out here. While this recipe might now have the typical crust variable (ehem.. dough..), it does have sauce! and toppings! and CHEESE! Plus, it's cut up just like a pizza is and you can hold it, so I'm calling it a pizza and running with it. ;)   I actually made two variations of these pizzas. One savory and one sweet.

Free 21 Day Fix Week Long Meal Plan


As many of you know, I'm a BeachBody coach and focus my excersize and meal plan around their program, The 21 Day Fix. According to BB, "It's not another diet. In fact, it's just the opposite. 21 Day Fix makes eating and fitness so simple, anyone can get great results. With 21 Day Fix there's no counting, no guessing, and no wondering. Just easy-to-follow portion control and one 30-minute workout per day. That's all." From the post, Skinny Breakfast Pizza I've had an influx of people ask me recently what exactly the 21 day fix is, what I think of it, and recipes + tips for those that are curious if the lifestyle is something that they can take on. I've done a few daily What I Ate on Wednesday posts (check out post #1,…

Skinny Breakfast Pizza

Skinny Breakfast Pizza

So lately I've been craving pizza like crazy. I am currently loving on thin crust; the extra crunchy texture is everything, guys. The other day, it was 9 am when my pizza cravings hit. Seriously.9.am. Not wanting to cave in too early in the day (even though healthy pizza is totally a thing), I decided to stick with breakfast, but make a play on the standard pizza to reinvent it into a food acceptable for that early in the day. So, low and behold, breakfast pizza was born, and I don't see myself ever going back to another weekend breakfast idea any time soon! Well, unless it has anything to do with guacamole goat cheese toast, but that's it. ;) Serving: 1 breakfast pizza 1 whole wheat, low carb tortilla 2-3 tablespoons of a…

Caprese Balsamic Soft Boiled Eggs


I think one big misconception about eating a healthy diet is that there is so much prep and time that goes into it. In reality, I'm always finding ways to whip up meals and snacks that take less than 10 minutes.  The key is to keep certain staples around your house that are prepped beforehand. I like to meal prep one day during the week (usually Sunday nights or Monday nights) basic foods that I know can work in various recipes. These generally include: Brown rice Hard boiled eggs Soft boiled eggs Baked veggies Brown rice pasta or whole wheat pasta Spaghetti squash Tofu (or chicken, shrimp, ground turkey, or any other lean protein) Then, when the day comes, I can mix and match what I want to eat. The meals generally include: Stir…

Guacamole Goat Cheese Toast


When it comes to breakfast, lunch, dinner, (okay, literally any time of the day), avocado is my jam. I have a very similar love affair with goat cheese, so when I combine the two, something magical happens. If you remember my go-to breakfast for avocado English muffins, this post won't come as a surprise to you that this is still my ultimate go-to breakfast combo, but adding some variations to recipes never hurt anyone. In fact, I've found ways to improve on already stellar recipes (teriyaki chicken stir fry BAKE, anyone?) I was really craving some avocado toast the other morning, but I just had one problem: I didn't have any ripe avocados. However, I'm not one to give up that easily, and when I realized that I had some single servings of guacamole…

Make Ahead Red Pepper Breakfast Sandwiches


Every Sunday, I set aside time to meal prep different breakfasts and lunches throughout the workweek. I am the kind of person that gets bored with repetition, especially when it comes to food. I'm not the biggest fan of leftovers, maybe after a few days, but eating the exact same thing as the morning before just does not appeal to me. To help this, I meal prep smaller batches of different variations of food. For lunch, I love making a few containers of this skinny cheesy shrimp pasta, some teriyaki chicken stir fry bake, or even this light fruit & nut chicken salad. Lunch is pretty easy & has a ton of different options. Breakfast, however, is pretty basic. To switch it up, I create some chocolate covered almond protein bites, a few make…
