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

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

Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Popsicles Yesterday marked the official first day of summer!  Yay!  In honor of this celebration, I’m so excited to share my Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Popsicles featured on my sweet friend + mama blogger, Debora Manusama-Sinaga’s blog, Mozdeb. One of my favorite summer treats is homemade popsicles!  They are the perfect hot summer day or poolside dessert, and what makes them even better is how easy they are to make + the fact that you can actually make them healthy. For these green and minty pops, I snuck in some spinach for an extra dose of healthiness but I promise you can’t taste it!   These have just 6 ingredients, all of which, of course, are healthy and natural.  Including my favorite vegan chocolate chips!  keep reading

Cherry and Lemon Acai Bowl I have to admit, I looked in my fridge and threw this smoothie bowl concoction together on a whim! I didn’t know how it would turn out with the addition of the lemon juice. I love lemon and add lemon juice to the majority of my juices, however, I’m not sure why I wasn’t adding it to my smoothies. Well, I did, and I love how it turned out. There’s just a hint of that fresh, citrus taste and then with the sweet cherries and acai, this bowl has quickly become a favorite of mine and my hubs! He actually said, “who needs ice cream when you have that?!” It was so cute he said that and said it with such enthusiasm. That means a lot especially because he does love ice cream! With that kind of encouragement, I knew I had to share on the blog!  keep reading
