Low Sugar Beet Margarita

If you know me, you know my go-to summer beverage is a margarita! If you know me well, you’ve been out with me while I ask the server multiple questions about what is actually in the margarita on the menu (don’t trust the description!) and then given them my own recipe to make! I’m really not that high maintenance, but I am particular about the taste of this beverage and more importantly the after effects! Continue reading

PB Banana Mocha S’mores Waffles

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(no, it’s not just to make easier cold-brew coffee), 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!

Key Ingredients Slow Cooker Butternut Squash and Lentil Soup

Good morning readers! Today I am thrilled to have Allie from Key Ingredients sharing a delicious and easy plant-based recipe with a perspective I cannot yet provide to you. You see, while I read research articles about the best ways to raise healthy children, and even have clients who have successfully done so with my guidance, I do not yet have kids myself. I know that many of you do, and at times my insecurities tell me that despite my recommendations, you may think it is impossible to create these healthy, plant-based meals that your whole family will love.

Thankfully, Allie has my back. She has two children 3 and under which, to me, sounds like the hardest job ever. Yet, she still prioritizes fitness, cooks nourishing meals that her family enjoys together, and shares these experiences with her readers! Bonus: this recipe has plant-based protein and plenty of healthy carbs to fuel your workouts and aid in recovery. Continue reading
