Chocolate Cherry Banana Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Covered Cherry + Banana Smoothie Bowls | These vegan, easy to make smoothie bowls are packed with healthy nutrients, fats, and keep you fueled with natural proteins & ingredients

I've been a tad obsessed with smoothie bowls lately. If you've never had a smoothie bowl before, they're exactly what they sound like! I always use frozen bananas as my base, add in any other frozen fruits I'm feeling, then get crazy with some toppings. :) The other day, Dj and I got home pretty late, so I didn't want to eat anything too heavy for dinner. I decided to play around with a new combo for a smoothie bowl and it was AMAZING. Luckily, I thought to snap a picture before digging in, so while this post doesn't have as many step by step pictures as my posts usually do, I can still share it! 1-2 frozen bananas 1/2 - 1 cup of frozen cherries 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla…

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…

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…

What I Ate on Wednesday; Vol. 3

"Easy weekday meal ideas"

One question I’m frequently asked is what I eat on a typical day-to-day basis. Sure, recipes are great, but many people want to know the more simple meals I munch on throughout the day. From the post: Homemade Acai Berry Bowls As an easier guide besides “check out some breakfast and lunch ideas on my blog!”, composing a post that gives an exact depiction of what I eat from the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep seemed a lot easier. I'm a big believer in eating foods that are healthy for you. I don't count calories, I rather keep track of food groups + the nutrients that I put into my body. I'm currently on the 21 Day Fix, which provides healthy workouts (only 30 minutes per day- yesss)…

Chocolate Covered Almond Protein Bites


I have officially found my newest favorite snack. Although, these are more of a supplemental meal of sorts. They are packed with dense nutrition- a full serving of fruit, protein, as well as a healthy fat. My biggest downfall when it comes to nutritional health will always be my sweet tooth. For my last meal, I'd probably choose a 1/2 baked, warm chocolate chip cookie... or the center of a Cinnabon.. or a warm brownie... you get the gist. ;) I've found ways to curb my sweet tooth with healthy alternatives, like these peanut butter brownies, balsamic baked berries, PB&J thumb print cookies, chocolate blueberry cupcakes with a whipped peanut butter frosting, and this baked chocolate peanut butter banana, but these seriously take the cake. The best part is that they are SO easy.…
