3 Ingredient peanut butter cookies
Are you ever craving something sweet but don't want to feel crappy about yourself for indulging? Personally, I feel this way almost every single day. These super easy, organic, 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies are the perfect treat. They curb that craving and don't make you feel bad about it. They only take 20 minutes to make and come out of the oven perfectly soft and crumbly. No pressure.. but I'd give these cookies a try ASAP!
No-Bake Blueberry Coconut Cheesecake Bars
I have been obsessed with Siggi's yogurt for sometime now, so when I heard they were having a recipe contest for their brand ambassadors, I knew I had to come up with something good! It was my friend (Hi, Cath!) who introduced me to their drinkable yogurt. Not only do I love the simple look of Siggi's products, but I love how simple their ingredients are. They're all-natural, high in protein, made with real fruit, and much lower in sugar then their competitors. Their drinkable yogurt makes it so easy to grab and go.. bringing back the go-gurt! PLUS it is packed with probiotics so hello, happy gut!
Awhile back, I saw a layered blueberry no-bake cheesecake on Pinterest and was obsessed with how it looked. I never made that recipe, but I remember some of the components and adapted it to fit my blueberry coconut dream for some bars. I am not much of a baker... which is why this recipe is perfect - no-bake, no problem! (Plus i'm going on month 5 with no stove or oven... so I couldn't bake even if I wanted to!)
Acai bowls have been a food craze for some time now. I remember having my first acai bowl when I was in high school and then seeing them everywhere when I was in Hawaii on vacation with my family (around 2009). Acai is a super food - packed with Vitamin K, C, A, B6, Omega-6, Omega-9, Potassium, Magnesium, antioxidants, etc. The acai berry is made up of 70% fat, which is actually why it is practically impossible to get your hands on the fresh berries in the US.
Getting ready for St. Patty's Day with this Mint Chip Smoothie Bowl featuring my favorite plant-based Vanilla Protein Powder from ALOHA. This is one of the best smoothie bowls I've made recently - so creamy with that natural mint flavor. You can find out more about my love for ALOHA products in my recents recipes for Berry Vanilla Chia Smoothie and Power Protein Bars.
I assembled this crazy, big veggie burger and wanted to share all the components with you. If you have all the ingredients on hand, or even switch it up with some of your own additions, you are in for one of the most satisfying veggie burgers that is so simple and quick to assemble. I added my own homemade hummus - the recipe is posted below - and topped it with ALL the goods.
I've been getting a lot of questions about the amount of smoothies I've been drinking lately. Yes, I have been making SO many smoothies but I don't eat them all. It's usually a battle between my roommates and friends of who can get out of work first to get the left over smoothies from the fridge.
If you've been keeping up with my Instagram posts and stories lately, you know that I've been on a major smoothie kick. I am constantly trying new variations of my favorite smoothies, but this recipe is one for the books. The chia seeds and ALOHA Vanilla Bean Protein powder are both packed with magnesium (among other things), which is great for increasing energy and helping digestion. This smoothie is so creamy and refreshing, and gives you the perfect fuel to start your day!
Finding a quality protein bar in the grocery store can sometimes feel like looking for a needle in a hay stack. There are a few brands that I really love, but a lot of them are filled with sugars, preservatives, artificial flavors, or inadequate protein sources. After talking to one of my friends, who goes out of her way every week to find protein energy balls/bars, I decided to take a stab at making my own. I'm so glad I did because I discovered how easy it is to make nutritious, protein-packed, energy bars that don't have any of the fillers and crap that I'm always trying to avoid.
Wings can get a bad rep for being an unhealthy bar food, but they don't have to be. This week I made a delicious homemade spicy barbecue sauce that used coconut sugar as the sweetener (you can read more about my love of coconut sugar in this recipe here) and tomato sauce instead of ketchup (steering clear of those added sugars). My roommate, who is a self proclaimed wing connoisseur, said they were amazing (so they must be, right?) AND she said she felt pretty healthy eating them. They definitely are healthier than bar room wings.
