Easy Weekday Raspberry Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

Easy Weekday Raspberry Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

Can I get an amen for all of this fresh spring/summer produce that’s back in our lives? I’m finding myself throwing alllll the fruit into my shopping cart lately since I just can’t get enough of it!

There’s something about the warm weather that sets me in the mood to eat light and healthy meals and I’ve been —gasp– finding myself reaching more for our fruit bowl and less for my chocolate drawer (yes, we have a full kitchen drawer full of the good stuff). One of my favorite ways to get more fruit into my diet is by whipping up a quick and delicious smoothie bowl! My favorite combination of late has been a banana raspberry smoothie base topped with all the fun toppings I have in my kitchen!…

Perfect High Protein Post-Workout Ice Cream

Hi friends! Today’s I’m popping in to share a super delicious, super easy, and super protein-packed smoothie recipe that is a perfect for these approaching warm summer days!

The Perfect High Protein Post-Workout Ice Cream

I’ve taken up running again and, after finishing a sweaty workout, there’s nothing I’m craving more than something cold and sweet! I recently discovered ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Cream at my local Ralph’s and absolutely love how all the flavors have a good balance of healthy fats, carbs, and protein! It’s changed my mindset towards ice cream from it being a treat, to it being something I can enjoy after exercise to replenish my body! …

Golden Beet Red Quinoa Salad

Golden Beet Red Quinoa Salad

Hey hey hey, party people! How is everyone doing this fine Monday morning?

This last week or so has been especially exciting for me for several reasons. I photographed my first celebrity wedding, took pictures of Selena Gomez (who was a guest!), was featured in People Magazine in print, and made the most AMAZING healthy salad! And while I know that last point is on a totally different topic, I’m super pumped to share one of the tastiest salads I’ve ever made!

I’ve always been the kind of person who’s viewed salads as just a side dish to accompany the main star of a meal. They never seem to be hearty enough or have enough flavor to merit being the only thing I eat (FOMOOF= Fear Of Missing Out On Food). This recipe changes all of that! I made a big batch and Kyle and I absolutely devoured the full serving bowl of food. I kept asking him if he wanted me to make something to go along with it, and his reply was to scoop another big serving on to his plate and say “Nope, I could eat this all day long”.

It has the most amazing flavors and textures and is incredibly filling from the quinoa and golden beets! The watercress adds in a fantastic, slightly-peppery kick that I absolutely love.Golden Beet Red Quinoa Salad

Caramelized Apple Oatmeal

Caramelized Apple Oatmeal - easy, fast, healthy, and mouthwateringly good!

Anyone else in the breakfast slump? 🙋🏼

Lately, I’ve been so unmotivated when it comes to breakfast. Dinners have been fantastic since I’m still on a cooking high from moving into my first apartment and having my own kitchen, but when I wake up in the morning at 5:30 or 6 am to get up with Kyle, the last thing I want to do is make anything that takes more than 2 minutes of effort. Breakfast has been pretty uninspiring lately with a lot of peanut butter toast and cereal!

That’s why, I came up with this recipe! I wanted a filling breakfast that was delicious, easy, and fast. Apple pie is my favorite food, so it only took a second to decide that I wanted to incorporate caramelized apples for a sweet start to the day!  …
