Chocolate Chip Brownies For reals. This is one of my absolute favorite recipes I’ve created to date! I am SO excited to share these Almond Butter Cup Brownies with you! I was craving some homemade, healthier brownies recently so got in the kitchen to create a simple recipe…and these were born. It sometimes happens on the first try and it DID! I got the recipe down, and I really want to hear what you think if you bake them. I hope you love them! In addition to being totally delicious, they are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free (basically all the frees;) and are made with cacao powder, which is basically raw chocolate and a superfood.

Star-Shaped Strawberry Coconut Ice Cream Bites Happy 4th of July weekend, sweet friend! Hope it’s a fun-filled weekend with lots of sunshine, relaxing, great food, good company and sweet treats. And speaking of sweet treats, I have the perfect one for you to enjoy with no guilt whatsoever! I know holidays can create some anxiety around staying healthy, but make healthy choices when you can and also treat yourself too (if you want)! Restricting ourselves is never fun, can create stress and can actually cause us to think about whatever food we are trying to restrict way too much. Food is absolutely meant to nourish us, but remember it’s also for us to enjoy. So, over the weekend, make sure to have a healthy breakfast (a protein and fiber-filled smoothie or some eggs with veggies and avocado), drink plenty of water, take your vitamins, make other healthy choices when you can, #treatyoself and have F U Nkeep reading

Gluten-Free Zucchini Pizza Boats 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.  keep reading
