Mini Cinnamon Peanut Butter Protein Pancake Stacks – Super Bowl Goodies Series

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Protein Pancake

        You might be sitting here thinking to yourself, "whaaaat, pancakes for Super Bowl food?" But stay with me here! If you think about it, the Super Bowl is an all day event. Last year, we had friends over to our place, and people were showing up around 10:30 in the morning, Budlight + corn hole boards in hand. This year, we're heading over to my friend's mom's house to tons of food, a heated pool, and those same sets of corn hole boards. Since it's an all-day event, I get bored of snacking on the same foods throughout the day. These pancakes are the perfect solution because they're made with Kodiak Cakes (I buy mine HERE), which is a very healthy brand that makes PROTEIN pancakes! Healthy pancakes that actually…

Super Bowl Party Food Ideas

              This year, I'm doing 7 Days of Super Bowl Goodies! That means a new post will be hitting this blog starting Saturday, January 28th - Saturday, February 4th. It's sort of like the 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family Freeform, but a little better because FOOD. And better yet, Super Bowl party food! Which is the best kind of food there is. (Minus you of course,  the best banana bread muffins ever). As a precursor, since all of these recipes will be coming to you bright and early on the said day, I've compiled a list of some of my #BlastFromThePast recipes that would also be pretty great crowd pleasers for the Super Bowl!

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…

Homemade Spicy Guacamole

Homemade Spicy Guacamole

Confession hour: I have a huge- giant - massive - obsession with all things avocado. And by that, 90% revolves around guacamole [the other 10% I leave to this avocado goat cheese toast.] Since getting involved with BeachBody and the 21 Day Fix, it was brought to my attention that, while avocados are a healthy fat, they (along with most things in life) should be enjoyed in moderation. Recipe: skinny breakfast pizza Throughout the years, I've made a fair share of homemade guac. Honestly, I prefer the homemade kind compared to the restaurant version, but that's probably because I jam pack it with other ingredients to lighten it up a bit. See, when you add different veggies into the guacamole, it packs it with lighter ingredients, making it lower in calories, as well as…

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 happenedโ€ฆ I could not decide which I loved more. SO, in spirits of not playing favorites, Iโ€™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

ย  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.

Skinny Pickled Deviled Eggs

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

It's funny to look back on childhood memories and compare your experiences to ones your friends had. Some we share, like going to private school then switching to public school and the all horrendous outfit choices you made your first year now that you had the choice of wardrobe. (I literally wore a blue snake-skin cheetah shirt that tied up in silky back string my first day of 5th grade and still remember it to this day... ugh.) While some experiences were vastly different. You should have seen my boyfriends face when he asked me what I was making and I told him pickled eggs. "Uh... pickled eggs????" I was, in return, shocked that he'd never had one before- something that my grandparents would keep in bulk in their fridge and I would choose…
