The Best Banana Muffins, GF & DF

These are THE best banana muffins you will ever taste. They’re GF, DF, and refined sugar free-but you would never know it. Plus, I bet you have everything you need already in your kitchen.

Two, Almost, Three

I don’t often get that ‘personal’ here. I mean, food is personal- i love it, I cook it, I eat it. But the events that influence what I eat, aren’t often talked about. Honestly. Can I be honest? Two, almost, three years ago, my parents decided to divorce. I should say, my father decided, but marriage takesRead 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

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.

Banana Overnight Oats

This is one of my favorite breakfasts, it’s quick, easy, and has only five ingredients. I make this after my daughter goes to bed and it makes enough for at least 2 breakfasts for the week. Here I used frozen blueberries and slivered almonds to top it off.

Oatcakes and Berry Sauce

These are one of my favorite breakfast treats. They’re naturally gluten free and making your own berry compote or topping is the perfect alternative to syrup. They’re extra moist and feel deliciously sinful.

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

Blueberry & Banana Baked Oatmeal

My mom told me the other day that ‘I live off oatmeal. For breakfast, and sometimes dinner, that’s probably true. There’s a coffee shop named Alterra that does a baked oatmeal that’s a little sweet (for me) but tasty compared to the instant oatmeal from Starbucks. I’d never had baked oatmeal until I tried theirRead more

Raw Rolled Oatmeal

I’m not sure when I started putting down Harry Potter and picking up self-help or nutrition books for recreational reading but I’m thankful I enjoy these things. I recently read, ‘The Beauty Detox Solution’ by Kimberly Snyder. One of the things I took away from the book, besides the ‘Cheat Sheet’ I posted earlier, wasRead more

Superfood Oatmeal

I love oatmeal for breakfast and sometimes dinner. It is a great breakfast option because it will fill you up in a healthy way, lower your cholesterol (due to the high level of fiber), and you can get away with a little sweetness (the fiber causes a slower absorption of sugar).  No time in theRead more

Raw Rolled Oat Cereal

I’m not sure when I started putting down Harry Potter and picking up self-help or nutrition books for recreational reading but I’m thankful I enjoy these things. I recently read, ‘The Beauty Detox Solution’ by Kimberly Snyder. One of the things I took away from the book, besides the ‘Cheat Sheet’ I posted earlier, wasRead more

Banana Oatmeal Yogurt Smoothie

If you’re a greek yogurt lover then this is the perfect pre-workout smoothie for you. It’s like having banana oatmeal for breakfast in the convenience of a smoothie and the added protein of an egg.

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

When i was in high school i absolutely adored Hogi yogi’s Terriyaki Bowl made up of white rice, chicken, and teriyaki sauce. The sauce made the dish. Why? Sugar. I’ll stop there. Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay naive forever and sugar in every meal of the day doesn’t really fall under ‘eating healthy’.  So after five years, i’veRead more
