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

Blackberry Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding Before getting straight to this delicious recipe, I must reiterate the importance of eating a healthy breakfast every morning.  How we start each day can greatly affect the healthy decisions we make throughout the rest of the day.  Not to mention a healthy + balanced breakfast gets our metabolism going, provides much needed nutrients and vitamins, gives us energy, helps us focus, and helps maintain a healthy weight or lose weight, depending upon your goals.  keep reading

Nutella French ToastSo, I was playing around in the kitchen this past Sunday trying to come up with a Valentine’s Day brunch idea to share with you, and voila!  This is what was developed, and let me tell you, it is amazing!!  It tastes so good you almost feel guilty, but luckily there is no guilt with this sweet treat. The “Nutella” is my homemade chocolate recipe that is super simple to make.  It’s just 3 ingredients and made with a natural sweetener.  The main ingredient is cacao powder, which is raw chocolate and considered a superfood!  Yep…chocolate is a superfood;)  It’s a great source of antioxidants, fiber, magnesium, and iron.  keep reading

Top 10 quick & healthy snacksI personally love snacks, and most of the time, snack between meals. Now, that’s not to say everyone should. There are different theories on snacking. Some say you definitely should snack, and others say you should only have three meals a day. What do I say? I think we are all different and have different dietary needs and preferences. If you’re hungry in between meals, then have a snack. It’s much better than feeling ravenous come mealtime and overeating or choosing options that are less than ideal. And you can’t go wrong with choosing healthy snacks that detoxify, boost your metabolism, increase your energy and focus, improve digestion, help with weight loss, and provide lots of nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants.

Here are my top 10 favorite snacks:  keep reading
