Burrito Bowl

This burrito bowl is one of my favorite lunch dishes, and it's simple to throw together. You're welcome to use any kind of cheese for the topping. Shredded light cheddar or part-skim mozzarella are both great choices, and those on a vegan diet can use their favorite shredded dairy-free cheese of choice. (My personal favorite [...]

Spinach and Goat Cheese Phyllo Triangles

Spinach and goat cheese phyllo triangles are one of my favorite appetizers! Typically, feta cheese is used in Spanakopita recipes, but personally, I think it tastes better with goat cheese. And goat cheese is healthier because it’s lower in calories, fat, and dairy than cow’s milk, so it’s easier for your body to digest. You're welcome [...]

Lentil Sloppy Joes

This is the best idea ever! A new and improved version of your old childhood favorite... except with protein and fiber packed lentils! I'll admit, I struggle with dinner recipes. I love appetizers and snacks, but when it comes to concocting healthy dinner recipes, I have to be really stoked about it. Pizza and tacos [...]

No-Bake Protein Bites

These little bite-sized protein balls are not only raw and vegan, but they only take 10 minutes to make (no baking required!) and they're so tasty! I just made them for the first time a few weeks ago and I've been hooked ever since. They're a great pre-workout boost since they're loaded with protein from oats, [...]

Black Bean Burrito

Ah, black beans. I have so many good things to say about them. They're packed with protein... high in fiber... great for your digestive tract... I could go on and on. For these black bean burritos, you can use any tortilla of your choice. My favorite tortillas for these are the wheat and corn flour tortillas [...]

Strawberry Banana Crepes with “Nutella”

These strawberry banana crepes are topped with an easy, dairy-free, 5-ingredient Nutella sauce. Normally, Nutella is made with hazelnuts, but I used peanut butter in this recipe because hazelnut butter isn’t sold in most grocery stores, and making your own hazelnut butter requires a food processor. (If you have a food processor, feel free to [...]

Raspberry Chocolate Lava Cake

In addition to my chocolate and coconut obsession, I also have an obsession with raspberry chocolate. It all started with Dove's Irresistibly Raspberry ice cream, a mouthful of heaven comprised of vanilla ice cream swirled with raspberry sorbet and Dove dark chocolate. Undoubtedly the best thing I've ever eaten. Sadly, it was discontinued a few [...]

Egg Frittata Muffins

One of the reasons many of us struggle with maintaining a clean diet is lack of time. Daily meal preparation can be extremely time consuming, which I think is why a lot of us end up purchasing store-bought food – because it’s faster and easier than slaving in the kitchen after a long day of [...]

Watermelon Vodka Slush

This watermelon vodka slush is the best summer cocktail ever! You only need 3 ingredients - watermelon, ice and watermelon flavored vodka. Not only is it super easy, but considering it's primarily made with fresh fruit, it's pretty healthy compared to other cocktails. This is my go-to drink when I'm looking for something fun to [...]

Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Protein Bars

Have you ever had chocolate peanut butter Luna bars? Well now you can make your own rice crispy protein bars at home, with only 5 ingredients! I recommend using brown rice crispies for a healthier version, but if that isn't available to you, regular rice crispy cereal works just fine. Barbara's and Nature's Path make a [...]
