Overnight Oats 4 Ways

Spring is the perfect time to finally try overnight oats! If you’re anything like me, you need your oats nice and warm in the winter and thinking of pulling cold oatmeal out of the fridge to start your day is cringe-worthy. This time of year though, it’s great to save time and have this meal on the go.

Guest Post: Potato, Tomato & Onion Egg Scramble

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am thrilled to have Audra from …And a Dash of Cinnamon sharing a delicious and easy recipe that you can eat at any meal. In collaborating, I realized that despite the super high nutrient density of eggs, I didn’t have many recipes with them on my blog, so Audra is stepping in to help with that.  I love that she is knowledgeable about nutrition as a medical professional and know her current and future patients will benefit from her knowledge of food for fuel and disease prevention!

Hi there! I’m super excited to be doing my first guest post on Kelly’s blog today. Just to introduce myself a little bit, I am a medical doctor currently in my residency training. I have a special interest in preventative medicine and well-being that combines food, fitness and health. It is amazing what food, exercise and mental well-being can do for your medical health. My blog at …And A Dash of Cinnamon gives an insider’s view to the medical world and combines humor, recipes, tips, travels and a little bit of medicine. My goal is to help people become empowered to take control of their own lives and health and to show people that making healthy food can be easy, quick and delicious. Continue reading

*Update (4/3/17)*
I would so appreciate your votes for this recipe in the Kohana Coffee Contest! All you need to do is click to submit your vote here. Thanks to everyone for supporting my blog that aims to support your health and fitness goals!

On Sunday’s in the Jones household, we almost always have pancakes or waffles. When I was first thinking about what I would make with my coffee concentrate, crepes came to mind, but I am not a pro at those and, honestly, would you have actually used my recipe and made crepes?! Probably not. So, waffles came to mind, and now I have this fun recipe to share with you!]

Spicy Wild Blueberry Cacao Smoothie

Disclosure: By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the Wild Blueberry Association of North America and I am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

Have your 2017 nutrition goals been going as planned? Were improving your snacks part of your goals, or should they have been? Do you eat to adequately refuel and recover post-workout? Or, are you following some crazy plan and getting sick of the same foods over and over?


Whether you have or haven’t been feeling satisfied with food lately, I have got a wildly delicious smoothie for you! When it only takes one minute to make, there’s no excuse. 🙂 It also may end up in your rotation on repeat as I have had it 3 times since I perfected it last Friday.

Vegan Sage Pesto Scramble

Disclosure: I received free full size containers of nuts from nuts.com in exchange for this blog post.

Nuts are easily turned to as a healthy snack but are often not thought of in everyday meals and dishes. I absolutely love to add nuts and nut butters to my oats in the morning, add nuts to salads, and make sauces, bars, and pesto! My buddies over at nuts.com sent black walnuts and pine nuts to inspire me in the kitchen. I’ve gotten creative in the past with my avocado walnut pesto but thought I would change up the herbs this time rather than the nuts, in comparison to the classic basil pesto most of you know and love.


Black walnuts actually have a nuttier flavor than traditional walnuts. I don’t enjoy English walnuts much unless I roast them but these I actually do enjoy raw! Any walnuts are healthy as they provide unsaturated fats so, eat whichever you prefer the flavor of. Fun fact: walnuts are the only nut with a substantial amount of omega-3 fatty acids so, eat up for anti-inflammatory benefits! Continue reading

Pumpkin Buckwheat Pancakes (with Spiced Apple Topping)

Here’s a distraction {or some comfort} if you need it the morning after Election Day – fluffy delicious pumpkin pancakes that will give make you feel as if you’re eating a comfort food but will actually give you plenty of nutrients. Bonus: if you add the toppings I recommend below instead of maple syrup, you’ll be keeping your blood sugar from crashing and releasing excessive adrenaline and cortisol (aka less anxiety and stress). 

Sunday is still usually a pancake days in the Jones household. We regularly enjoy my original buckwheat oat pancakes (with a pumpkin option), almond flour banana pancakes, and super chocolatey protein pancakes but, this fall I thought the former needed a huge pumpkin boost!
