Raspberry Walnut Crumble Bars

Raspberry Walnut Crumble Bars

I was feeling a bit creative this afternoon and wanted to bake some treats for my team. I’m always trying to combine something sweet that’s healthy. From vegan peanut butter cookies to sugar-free almond bark, you name it, I’ve tried to healthify it. Because I’m […]

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate & peanut butter. Cookies & milk. Some things just are meant to be together. I had to make two batches of these bad boys for my teammates because I accidentally ate the first (one thing led to another… and will work off later, hopefully) […]

Quick and Easy Eggplant

Quick and Easy Eggplant

Let’s be honest, cooking a full dinner can be exhausting. There are times when I just want it to appear in front of me already made. This is my favorite because I can make it in ten minutes while the rest of the meal is […]

North End Breakfast Salad

North End Breakfast Salad

Right down the street from where we live in El Porto lies the cutest corner cafe overlooking the ocean. The best mornings are spent sleeping in, taking a walk to the cafe along the strand, and watching the surfers while enjoying our coffee. While the […]

Mint Avocado Pork Belly Buddha Bowl

Mint Avocado Pork Belly Buddha Bowl

I’m all about the buddha bowl. If there’s something I eat more consistently then chocolate, it’s this. I created this right around the time of my pork belly phase (I go through food phases… where it’s all I crave for a month). The cool mint […]

The Breakfast Bowl

The Breakfast Bowl

I don’t deserve credit for this one. Brian has an infamous breakfast he makes for himself overseas every day. One morning he cooked up a giant brunch starring these breakfast bowls. I fell in love with him right then and there. True story. All you […]

Overnight hemp oats

Overnight hemp oats

This recipe I take with me on the road. Its perfect if you can’t eat a certain meal provided in your travels or you need to add an extra snack. I like to make them extra creamy and filled with protein. You can follow the […]

Nutritional Stocking Stuffers

Nutritional Stocking Stuffers

I love to grab a healthy snack whenever I am heading out the door. Or I love finding creative ways to mix things into my go-to smoothie bowls. I personally value the foods and nutrients that I put in my body. It’s important to remember […]

Coconut Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries

Coconut Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries

I’ve been known to crave sweet potatoes at all hours of the day so I like to make a big batch of these and eat them cold or hot with a little almond butter on top! I love to make these for any dinner party […]

California Greek Salad

California Greek Salad

What I look forward to most in summer is hosting dinner parties and having guests over whenever we can. I started making this salad for when it’s too hot and I’m not trying to turn the oven or stove on. Brian loves greek salad and […]
