Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my absolute favorite treats! Not only for Valentine’s Day but really any time of the year. And I have a pretty good idea that you may also love a deliciously dipped strawberry into sweet dark chocolate with fun different toppings sprinkled on top! So, of course, I wanted to share How to Easily Make Healthy Chocolate Covered Strawberries with the Prettiest Toppings just in time for this love-inspired holiday.
Not only are they delicious, they are simple to make and much healthier than the chocolate strawberries you buy at the store or bakery. [click to continue…]

I’ve seen this concept of zucchini pizza boats floating around, so thought I would try my hand at making them myself. I wanted to create a recipe that was super easy with fresh ingredients. I didn’t know how many tries it would take to make these just right – meaning not too soft (i.e. mushy) and also not undercooked (i.e. too crunchy). It had to be just perfect!
Luckily, I got it right on the first try! Hopefully, you will agree. And if it’s not exactly to your liking, just know you can bake for less or more time, depending on what you’re going for.
These Gluten-Free Zucchini Pizza Boats are the epitome of a healthy, clean, plant-based meal. They have only 5 ingredients and are an excellent source of folate, vitamin A, potassium, fiber, protein, Vitamin C, omega-3 fatty acids and zinc. [click to continue…]

With the unofficial end to summer upon us, I feel like life gets serious again with seriously packed schedules and busy days. Which means not a whole lot of time in the mornings which means not a whole lot of time to make a healthy breakfast. Well, that’s where chia seed pudding comes in!
You probably know by now just how much I love chia seed pudding. I’ve already shared two different recipes on my blog: Pumpkin Spice Chia Seed Pudding and Blackberry Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding. And now I’m back with another one! This time I’ve included a layer of cherry banana smoothie along with crunchy, almond buttery toppings. Chia seed pudding and an antioxidant-filled smoothie all rolled into one?! Yes, please!
This Lavender Chia Seed Pudding with a Cherry-Banana Smoothie on Top is so simple to make with minimal effort plus is super healthy and seriously delicious. It’s dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free and an awesome source of clean, plant-based protein. It’s also full of flavor, fiber and healthy fats and is naturally sweetened. [click to continue…]
