This recipe is super simple and you can really make it what you want with whatever ingredients you have on hand at the moment. If you keep the base which is the oats and the honey as the binder you can pretty much throw in anything else you want and it turns out great. I do love a touch of sea salt and cinnamon as well to keep the sweet/savory flavor. However if you want to go all out savory you can add any spice you have in your cabinet. If you want it sweeter sometimes I really love to add mini chocolate chips to change it up if I'm craving chocolate.Read More

This recipe came out of nowhere. I was in the mood for something refreshing like strawberry and lemon combination sounded delightful. I also LOVE bakes so I really wanted to pair something in a form of a bake with these two flavors.
I started looking at a ton of recipes - which I normally do to get inspiration. Then I looked at what ingredients my mom had at her house. I pulled out chia, hemp seeds, bananas, plant protein, oats, honey, coconut oil and she also had some eggs and I picked up fresh strawberries, lemons and eggs. With that I figured I could some up with something so I just started mixing. Meanwhile, my sister decided to sit and watch - with much anticipation I might add as well as some disbelief I could even make this work!Read More
One of my favorite cakes ever is carrot cake! I’m not a huge fan of cake but if I’m gonna eat it, its gotta be carrot, or red velvet all the way. I tried this variation to make a cleaner and healthier version of some of my favorites.

So as I mentioned in my Instagram post, I'm not normally a fan of stuffed peppers. However, it turns out, I really enjoyed this version - as did my husband! Bonus!
I usually start out with a rough plan of what I want to make. Meaning, I had all of the base ingredients such as lentils, peppers, onions, garlic, some other veggies and of course, avocado! However, aside from that, I don't really know what I'm going to make or how it will turn out until I start working in the kitchen. That's just the way I roll. No recipes, or if I do use them, I alter them every time. Its how I express my creativity and I really enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to make healthy foods!Read More
Let's talk Cruciferous vegetables. Some of which include (bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower) and dark, leafy greens in this category (collard greens, kale, spinach, Swiss chard) Raw or cooked these vegetables are rich sources of antioxidant compounds like vitamins A and C and flavonoids that help reduce inflammation which as we know is the root cause of most problems in our body.Read More

I'm always looking for new smoothie ideas and I love the idea of adding turmeric to a smoothie I just wanted to figure out a way to mask the taste without adding loads of sugar! The reason I like to use turmeric is because it is one of many ways to reduce inflammation in the body. And why would one want to do that? Because inflammation is the main cause for most of the problems we have going on in our bodies.Read More

Now regardless of if you like beets or not, you absolutely need to try this recipe! I've made these burgers a couple of different times and typically just make a huge batch of 15 or so burgers and keep a few in the fridge for the week and freeze the rest. They are perfect for on-the-go where you don't have to think about a meal and you know its packed with veggies and nutrients.
Now, what I can say is these things are messy. Its a bit time consuming, especially if you make a double/triple batch like I do. However, know it will save you a lot of time throughout the week.Read More
