Chocolate Walnut Protein Fudge – Super Bowl Goodies Series

Chocolate Walnut Protein Fudge

      And just like that, we've come to day 7 of my 7 days of Super Bowl goodies series! This week just flew by and really refocused my motivation to play around in the kitchen and post new recipes on a more consistent basis! As a series finale, I thought I'd end it on a sweet note while keeping it nice + healthy (not that I don't adore you, slow cooker lava cake) with some protein fudge! As far as protein powders go, I love the taste of chocolate Shakeology in baking. [I used it in these chocolate covered almond protein balls too!] I always go through a friend to buy Shakeo, and if you're looking to get some, you can find it HERE! If the price is a little too high…

Low Calorie Pizza Cups – Super Bowl Goodies Series

"10-Recipes-to-Bring-to-your-Memorial-Day-Party"

            Pizza is hands down my favorite food + biggest weakness.  I've found ways to make this dish lighter, like this roasted veggie flatbread pizza and even a skinny breakfast (!!) pizza, so I thought using similar "flatbread" material would allow for a lower calorie + lower carb Super Bowl treat while still having that staple pizza flavor. I love recipes that are customizable to specific taste buds + also those with a smaller ingredient list, and this low carb recipe falls in to both categories! By using tortillas, they give that crunch of a crispy pizza, but at a fraction of the calories! That's a win/win in my book. :) These pizza cups take only about 20 minutes to make, so they are perfect for a quick dish…

10 Vegetarian 21 Day Fix Dinner Recipes

Vegetarian 21 Day Fix Dinner Recipes

                With all the success my post for 50 Vegetarian 21 Day Fix Recipes had (seriously, it's my most viewed + popular post to date!) I figured the demand was higher than I thought when it came to veggie friendly 21 day fix approved recipes. Don't get me wrong, I totally get it. The struggle is kind of real for a vegetarian finding fun and easy Fix approved recipes that still follow your dietary lifestyle. After playing around of Pinterest for quite some time (literally months, you guys….) I came to the conclusion that I cannot be the ONLY vegetarian 21 Day Fixer out there (I had a total Are you there God? It’s me, Margret moment for a second). So, to make my life easier (and for…

Spicy Pumpkin Crockpot Chili

Spicy Pumplin Crockpot Chili || the perfect fall meal that you can throw together & forget!

  Even though it's still a whopping 90 degrees in good ol' Florida right now, my body + mind are craving fall staples. Chili, cozy sweaters, falling leaves, crisp air, apple cider... just to name a few. Since the weather is out of my control, I decided to give into my fall cravings and whip up some chili in the crockpot! This spicy pumpkin crockpot chili was the perfect solution to my cravings. I've never actually had pumpkin in chili before, but the sweet, earthy flavors combined perfectly with the spicy kick of jalapeno and heartiness of the veggies. I made my chili vegan, but you can easily swap out my meatless crumbles for some ground turkey, beef, or chicken! I typically sub out meat in my soups for portobello mushrooms; something I would…

Asian Veggie Spring Rolls with Homemade Sweet + Spicy Peanut Sauce

"10-Recipes-to-Bring-to-your-Memorial-Day-Party"

                          If I had to choose one food group to live on forever, I think Asian cuisine would win the battle. In an attempt to eat out less, I've been trying to make some of my classic favorite dishes at home (hello, talking about you, skinny teriyaki 'fried' rice), and these Asian inspired veggie spring rolls with a homemade sweet + spicy peanut sauce were my most recent battle. I'm not sure why, but making my own spring rolls always seemed extremely intimidating. I'm not going to lie, the first time trying to figure out the rice paper was a total flop, but utilizing a non-stick wood serving tray as my rolling table actually ended up being my best friend. After I…

Avocado Chickpea Salad Sandwich 

Vegan Avocado Chickpea Salad Sandwich || If you're looking for a hearty meal (vegan or not) look no further! This amazing sandwich can be made in 5 minutes, is packed with nutrients, and GOOD for you food!

I'm pretty sure if they had support groups for people who loved Facebook food videos, I'd be the first one to sign up. I really love this new trend of short recipe clips flooding my timeline and am constantly jotting down ones that I 'neeeed to try asap'! Now if only someone would create a Pinterest-esq site for these quick food videos so that I could store them in a more effective way directly on Facebook... The other week, Buzzfeed Tasty posted a video featuring an avocado chick pea sandwich and I was super inspired. I absolutely love sandwiches that feature "salads". My infamous skinny fruit + nutty chicken salad recipe is a crowd favorite, but ever since going vegetarian almost a year ago, I've been hunting down subs for my past favorites. Once…

Coconut Walnut Cherry Crunch Smoothie Bowl

Coconut Walnut Cherry Crunch Smoothie Bowl || These smoothie bowls are the perfect vegan breakfast, snack, or even meal option! It's light, easy to make, and customizable to what you're wanting to fuel your body with that moment! My family LOVES them!

I have a very love/hate relationship with smoothies (except for these skinny very berry smoothies, because they are super tasty). Or rather, cold foods in general. I tend to go through fazes where I'm really about them, or really against them. There is not in between, but this month, I've been on a total smoothie kick. They're really just looking at me taunting me with a "we're backkkkk" but I'm loving it. Further more, I've expanded my renounced love for smoothies by creating smoothie bowls lately. [Do you guys remember my recent post about chocolate covered cherry + banana smoothie bowls?] Well, apparently they only keep getting better! Or at least I've found the flavor combos are pretty much limitless and SO versatile. They're kind of like my no-bake protein bites. I started off…
