This recipe was inspired by my favorite coffee shop that serves the most amazing blueberry muffin. I go there a few days a week to work and they have the absolute best cappuccino ever - strong and smooth - and I always get their paleo muffin. Its a perfect blend of light and fluffy, tasty, blueberry filled, a bit of crunch and very filling! I would eat one of these and be satisfied for at least 3-4 hours which if you know me, is quite a feat! So after paying $4 for my favorite muffin several times and carefully studyihg each bite, I decided to give it a try and make it myself!Read More
If there's anything that can be created in less than 20 minutes, I'm in! How about you? I mean, most days I barely have time to get myself together let alone cook an extravagant meal with 10,000 ingredients. Don't get me wrong I love cooking! And I don't mind taking the time, SOME DAYS. However, generally speaking I'm rushing just like most of you!
Because we want to eat clean, and usually in the evening I'm trying to cook meals that are primarily veggies with protein. I love shrimp because its easy to make and it goes with so many things! I get the frozen wild shrimp often at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's - but it can be purchased anywhere. The key is to look for the wild stuff. By letting it set out for a few hours or keeping it in the fridge the night before is a great way to de-thaw it without having to think about it.Read More
Yes, I know its been 9 days since I've posted a recipe but the creative juices just weren't flowin! Ya hear me? I mean it really takes some creative inspiration to come up with these recipes and really execute well so I have to do it when I'm in the zone. And well today, friends I'm back in the zone!
For this recipe you can really swap out to make it fully paleo or vegan and I'll give you some variations in the ingredients list. Its very simple and however way you decide to spin it, I'm sure it will turn out to be bomb.
This bake has a sweet and cakey-vibe but then add in the lemon curd and.......daaaannnnggg. Legit! So I decided to add the curd till last minute and then wanted to stack it and make it a double decker delight with the custard in between just to create a more interesting looking dish. However way to decide to make this, it will rock your taste buds.Read More
Before I stared this recipe I had no idea how it would turn out. I really was just looking to create a fresh sweet bake with some fresh fruit. Well it turns out it turned out pretty amazing. It was light, filling, tasty and completely guiltless! Very excited to share this recipe with all of you!Read More
If you can't tell by looking at my blog I LOVE desserts. More importantly, I LOVE chocolate and cookie dough. However, if I'm going to eat cookie dough, I'm going to make it healthy because I really want more than what I should have and I know my limits! Once I start into it, I lose it. So its better to know I'm eating "healthy" versions to keep my health in check!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. I happen to love this recipe and it was very fudgy, diary free, gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan and all around wholesome ingredients.Read More
According to my husband, these turned out quite well! It was a dabble in trying to create more "meat" friendly recipes. Clearly as you can see by reading my blog and recipes that I do not eat meat, however that doesn't mean I don't prepare it. My husband is a huge fan of all types of meat, poultry and I do make it for him on the reg! This recipe was inspired by him wanting to eat chicken fingers - don't ask me why he had a craving but he was ready to order from the kids menu using our baby as an excuse to eat them! Rather than him going that route, I decided I needed to try a new chicken recipe - and a healthy one at that - to help him satisfy his cravings:)Read More
This actually turned out much better than I expected and am VERY happy with the result! The whole family enjoyed this one! Total prep time was about 30 minutes and total cook time was about 15. Overall 45 minutes for a delicious meal isn't bad! If you add to this recipe you can create a meal for 2 dinners / 2 different days if you want! I just happen to have a very hungry husband that never leaves leftovers! I hope you enjoy!Read More
The name is everything! I couldn't think of a better description for these and this sounded right on! So this is the easiest nut mix ever to create and it takes literally no prep time at all. Throw them in the crock pot - or I guess if you have a modern day Insta Pot - and voila! I'm still stuck in the stone ages and I happen to LOVE my crock post so if you have another means I guess you can just speed up the wait time for the deliciousness!Read More

I love real gnocchi from great restaurants where its prepared from scratch, that day. Otherwise, forget it. I love fresh and real ingredients in my food and this is one way to have your gnocchi and not feel an ounce of guilt! Well, depends on how much you each but as you will find this recipe is VERY fillingRead More
A cauliflower and brown rice blend to appease my paleo and carb eaters alike. Certainly can go all in on either the cauliflower or brown rice but I really like this blend! So many flavors and so filling! I hope you enjoy!Read More
I was majorly craving salmon and veggies today. Its not uncommon for this craving to happen and I ALWAYS have veggies on hand to ensure I'm getting my daily dose. Tonight was no exception and I had some frozen salmon and cauliflower and fresh broccoli florets. I decided I needed both and that would require a little bit of prep.
Get ready to wow your tastebuds with some zing and zang!Read More
I love smoothies and frankly nothing makes me happier than creating something new and smoothies make it so fun and easy to change up the flavor to keep your taste buds guessing. I had a major craving for chocolate – this is nothing new – so rather than just make a plain ole chocolate smoothie I added some kick with a bit of mint and it was exactly I was imagining and sparked some jazz for my taste buds!Read More
