I know, I know, I’ve been posting a lot of dessert-like recipes lately. You all must be devastated by the fact that these delicious bites all contain tons of nutrients and are a super healthy way to indulge.

Strawberry Chocolate Oat Bars

Strawberry season is one of my favorites! We hiked over to Doylestown recently for our annual strawberry picking trip at Hellerick’s Farm. Per usual, we went a bit overboard and brought home more than two people need. Obviously, this meant recipe testing! I enjoy oats and chocolate several times per week year round. So, why not mix these delicious ingredients together with the perfect nutrient balance to fuel exercise?

Garbanzo Berry Cupcakes

The base for this recipe may not have been cupcakes, but with a tad more moisture and a couple of edits to these chickpea flour banana muffins you now have a successful fiber-ful cupcake. Even better, I have the easiest and most nutrient-rich ways to add patriotic color. This way you can celebrate Memorial Day and 4th of July with them!

Now that Cinco de Mayo is over, it’s time to focus on the next holiday! No, not Mother’s Day {though I am sure your Mom would love this recipe}. I’m talking about National Hummus Day, obviously! I make hummus very often, but it’s also such an easy ingredient to pick up at the grocery store and it is useful for so much more than dipping. Let’s celebrate it’s versatility on Hummus Day, May 13, on Mother’s Day and every day! Continue reading

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. πŸ™‚ It also may end up in your rotation on repeat as I have had it 3 times since I perfected it last Friday.

Dairy Free Jalapeno Poppers

While my original recipe was delicious, and I have a newer protein packed stuffed hot pepper recipe too, this past weekend I made a fabulous upgrade to these poppers with a little roasted red pepper. In recent years, I would be SO over football right now since I am a New York Jets fan and Tim is a Jacksonville Jaguar fan (if you aren’t into football, they aren’t good and are never still playing at this point in the playoffs). We were extra into the final play-off games this year though and as such, threw ourselves a little football party with our favorite spicy foods. This included these poppers, some ginger almond flour crusted tofu (similar recipe here), and buffalo roasted cauliflower. Continue reading
