Spicy Pumpkin Crockpot Chili

Spicy Pumplin Crockpot Chili || the perfect fall meal that you can throw together & forget!

  Even though it's still a whopping 90 degrees in good ol' Florida right now, my body + mind are craving fall staples. Chili, cozy sweaters, falling leaves, crisp air, apple cider... just to name a few. Since the weather is out of my control, I decided to give into my fall cravings and whip up some chili in the crockpot! This spicy pumpkin crockpot chili was the perfect solution to my cravings. I've never actually had pumpkin in chili before, but the sweet, earthy flavors combined perfectly with the spicy kick of jalapeno and heartiness of the veggies. I made my chili vegan, but you can easily swap out my meatless crumbles for some ground turkey, beef, or chicken! I typically sub out meat in my soups for portobello mushrooms; something I would…

Asian Veggie Spring Rolls with Homemade Sweet + Spicy Peanut Sauce

"10-Recipes-to-Bring-to-your-Memorial-Day-Party"

                          If I had to choose one food group to live on forever, I think Asian cuisine would win the battle. In an attempt to eat out less, I've been trying to make some of my classic favorite dishes at home (hello, talking about you, skinny teriyaki 'fried' rice), and these Asian inspired veggie spring rolls with a homemade sweet + spicy peanut sauce were my most recent battle. I'm not sure why, but making my own spring rolls always seemed extremely intimidating. I'm not going to lie, the first time trying to figure out the rice paper was a total flop, but utilizing a non-stick wood serving tray as my rolling table actually ended up being my best friend. After I…

Coconut Walnut Cherry Crunch Smoothie Bowl

Coconut Walnut Cherry Crunch Smoothie Bowl || These smoothie bowls are the perfect vegan breakfast, snack, or even meal option! It's light, easy to make, and customizable to what you're wanting to fuel your body with that moment! My family LOVES them!

I have a very love/hate relationship with smoothies (except for these skinny very berry smoothies, because they are super tasty). Or rather, cold foods in general. I tend to go through fazes where I'm really about them, or really against them. There is not in between, but this month, I've been on a total smoothie kick. They're really just looking at me taunting me with a "we're backkkkk" but I'm loving it. Further more, I've expanded my renounced love for smoothies by creating smoothie bowls lately. [Do you guys remember my recent post about chocolate covered cherry + banana smoothie bowls?] Well, apparently they only keep getting better! Or at least I've found the flavor combos are pretty much limitless and SO versatile. They're kind of like my no-bake protein bites. I started off…

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…

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 β€œcheck 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)…

Healthy Teriyaki Vegetable “Fried” Rice

"Healthy-Homemade-Vegetarian-Fried-Rice"

One of my favorite ways to cook is to take classic comfort foods and try to make them healthy. Sometimes they don't always work out, but then there's times like this (or that time) where the recipe comes out and you can't believe that it's healthy and you probably won't ever go back to the take out version. Do you remember my latest post on my recipe for teriyaki roasted veggies? Well, I used those to create this healthy "fried" rice! I love it when recipes are versatile and you can change up how you want to use them. This recipe is a good mix of both fresh and roasted vegetables, fluffy eggs, brown rice, salty feta cheese, and tons of different spices! I made my vegetarian (because if you didn't know, I am…

Teriyaki Roasted Veggies

"Teriyaki-Roasted-Vegetables"

When it comes to roasting vegetables, I'm a huge fan. I've always been a huge fan of veggies in any sort (when I was about 5, my favorite food was salad; I was a weird child) ;) . When you add teriyaki in the mix, you have me sold. When you roast or bake meals with a sugar element in it (like balsamic or, in this case, teriyaki, it crystalizes and provides an added crunch- yum!) This is my favorite go-to side dish. I eat these as a snack or add them to some rice & protein and make a meal! If you're interested in how you can make these more substantial, check out this recipe for my Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry Bake. Here's What You Need: 3Β cups of raw broccoli 2 cups raw…

Roasted Veggie Low-Carb Pizza ; 21 Day Fix Approved

"Roasted-Veggie-Healthy-Pizza"

I'm sorry I've been so MIA lately! I've been in the process of revamping my blog & had some personal changes happen lately in my life that my blog has taken a backseat. I'll be sure to do a recap post soon and fill you all in about what I've been up to lately (because a whole lot has changed since my last recap post!) One aspect I've been trying to focus more on in my life is my health again. I recently stepped up my involvement with Beach Body and became a coach! Remember when I did the 21 Day Fix? I fell back in love with it / the lifestyle, so I've been following that program again, just with my own modifications to fit my life more. Feel free to comment below…
