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

Cherry Rose Dairy-Free Ice Cream I’ve been obsessed with making homemade, healthier ice cream the past several summers, and now with the addition of my new ice cream maker (it’s only $59 too!), it has been even more fun creating unique ice cream flavors. Plus, these hot summer Texas days have me craving ice cream on the regular! What inspired this Cherry Rose Dairy-Free Ice Cream was a beautiful photo on the cover of Food & Wine Magazine, the June edition. It looked absolutely delicious. I adapted the recipe to be dairy-free, refined sugar free, less ingredients, plus added in the unique flavor of rose water with dried rose petals sprinkled on top.  keep reading

IMG_1546 I just love avocados! Because of their delicious taste and many health benefits. They’re a great source of fiber, heart-healthy fats, vitamins K & C, and are packed with potassium {more than a banana!}. They really are one of the healthiest foods you can eat! I’m all about light lunches and simple dinners {and avocados!}.  That’s why I’m super excited to share these Stuffed Avocados 6 Different Ways with you. These stuffed avocados are what clean eating dreams are made of, full of whole foods and primarily plant-based. Many are great for vegan options, and then we have one for cheese lovers, one for shrimp lovers and one for those who like their eggs and {turkey} bacon! I wanted to include something for everyone and a good variety.  keep reading

Homemade Gluten-Free Mexican Pizza So, when I was in middle school, I loved Taco Bell’s Mexican pizzas. And then to be honest, I forgot about them in my adult years, especially since I don’t eat fast food. But, then randomly, I had a craving. A craving for a Mexican pizza! I figured it would be super easy to make, and I was right! Super simple and healthy with the same deliciousness I loved back in the day.  keep reading
