Banana Bread Muffins

Everything banana bread should be, sweet, fluffy- yet dense, satisfying, and perfect with your morning tea. You would never know they’re gluten free and vegan.

Game Changing Chocolate

Call me Granny. It’s 8:23 and I’m in bed. This could be really bad for my social life. (ha-my social life.) Anyway, Celine turned one! Hip Hip! We had an ‘Under the Sea’ party for her and boy, did she love it!  Initially she was a little bewildered by all of the people, lanterns, blue and yellowRead more

Raw Chia Seed Energy Bars

These have become my favorite afternoon pick me up. They’re wickedly indulgent. Soft and chewy, sweet and salty, and coated in a delicious vegan chocolate sauce. They have my heart. I watched a documentary, yesterday, called That Sugar Film, about a healthy Australian man who vows to eat 40 teaspoons of sugar a day (160 grams). He does it onlyRead more

Healthy Candy Bars

Candy Bars. Oh, what a special place they hold in my heart. They remind me of Halloween, minus the part that included dressing up in a less than original costume (a snowboarder) and freezing my bum off trying to trick or treat. These are sweet, salty, chewy, and chocolate-y. They’re a must.  Though they’re healthy, they’re still prettyRead more

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Two weeks ago, my sugar/chocolate addiction pushed it’s limits. I had to get rid of it and since going ‘cold turkey’ has never been an effective measure to get off something ‘for good’, I knew I had to ‘add in’ a bunch of ‘good stuff’ to forgo ‘the bad stuff’. Using the idea that no one everRead more

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Did you know? It’s Mother’s Day in two short weeks. It’s also my little brother’s birthday… tomorrow. So, if you happen to know him give him a ring… or a text… kids his age appreciate a good text. I suppose this ensures that they won’t actually have to have a real conversation with you- heaven forbid.Read more

Almond Joy Granola Bars

1. I got 8 hours of sleep last night. 8!! My nugget actually slept through the night and I just can’t believe it. Life is just full of wonder isn’t it? 2. Sometimes I do the ‘dumb thing’ and think about the past. I’ve deemed this dumb, silly, and quite honestly ‘stupid’ because it causes me toRead more

Paleo Nutella from ECISNP

Today, we have a post from Kylie at “Clean Eating Is the New Pink“. Kylie took up a huge part of my childhood. We would go sledding in my back yard and play cops and robbers in my Mcdonalds Kitchenette. I’ve never had so much fun playing with fake burgers and mini softserve than I have as anRead more

Black Bean Brownies

This is how you enjoy brownies on a diet. Excuse me, while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Made with black beans, coconut sugar, and flax seeds, they’re completely vegan and guilt free.

Meringue Wednesday

I’m currently referring to my mother as, ‘the nice lady’. After this weekend, that’s how I imagine C sees her Indian grandmother. I let my mom put C down for a nap one day and 20 minutes later they were out by the pool. Not napping, clearly. Apparently, my mom couldn’t stand the crying and Grandma’sRead more

here little fishy

Every year, on the first day of Spring, my friend’s sweet husband brings her flowers. They’re not just ANY grocery store flowers, they’re Mark’s Garden Flowers… which are just the most beautiful flowers on earth. Isn’t that the sweetest thing? I melted for her. Every husband should follow suit, I’m convinced.

Raw Cacao Truffles

On my last birthday I was sick, sleepy, and pregnant. A true winning combo for an exciting birthday. I didn’t mind considering, for me, a good birthday is spent by eating good food, my favorite Apple Cake (thanks mom), and spending it with my family. We were pretty tame and decided to get tickets toRead more

The White House Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

So today we actually visited the White House and took a tour. I was a bit disappointed they hid the west wing from us but what can you do. One of my favorite parts, besides seeing a pic of princess Diana and John Travolta dancing, was the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe they shared with us!Read more
