Mini Cinnamon Peanut Butter Protein Pancake Stacks – Super Bowl Goodies Series

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Protein Pancake

        You might be sitting here thinking to yourself, "whaaaat, pancakes for Super Bowl food?" But stay with me here! If you think about it, the Super Bowl is an all day event. Last year, we had friends over to our place, and people were showing up around 10:30 in the morning, Budlight + corn hole boards in hand. This year, we're heading over to my friend's mom's house to tons of food, a heated pool, and those same sets of corn hole boards. Since it's an all-day event, I get bored of snacking on the same foods throughout the day. These pancakes are the perfect solution because they're made with Kodiak Cakes (I buy mine HERE), which is a very healthy brand that makes PROTEIN pancakes! Healthy pancakes that actually…

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…

Chocolate Cherry Banana Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Covered Cherry + Banana Smoothie Bowls | These vegan, easy to make smoothie bowls are packed with healthy nutrients, fats, and keep you fueled with natural proteins & ingredients

I've been a tad obsessed with smoothie bowls lately. If you've never had a smoothie bowl before, they're exactly what they sound like! I always use frozen bananas as my base, add in any other frozen fruits I'm feeling, then get crazy with some toppings. :) The other day, Dj and I got home pretty late, so I didn't want to eat anything too heavy for dinner. I decided to play around with a new combo for a smoothie bowl and it was AMAZING. Luckily, I thought to snap a picture before digging in, so while this post doesn't have as many step by step pictures as my posts usually do, I can still share it! 1-2 frozen bananas 1/2 - 1 cup of frozen cherries 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla…

Banana Nut Bread Protein Bites

Banana Nut Bread Protein Bites

I'm not really sure why, but for the loooongest time I stayed far away from no-bake snacks and desserts. I was kind of intimidated by them because when I heard "...then use a food processor.." I would stop there. I love baking/cooking/inventing, but when it comes to messing with appliances, I'm kind of the worst. I've messed with food processors before, (like when I made this super tasty creamy roasted garlic hummus), which worked out great, but then the next time it just started smoking?? I don't know. I blame my previous clean up skills. There are just SO many parts, I'm sure I put one back wrong. So, just as I was accepting my basic appliance fate, everything changed + I was shown the light. My saint of a mom got me this super…

Skinny Breakfast Pizza

Skinny Breakfast Pizza

So lately I've been craving pizza like crazy. I am currently loving on thin crust; the extra crunchy texture is everything, guys. The other day, it was 9 am when my pizza cravings hit. Seriously.9.am. Not wanting to cave in too early in the day (even though healthy pizza is totally a thing), I decided to stick with breakfast, but make a play on the standard pizza to reinvent it into a food acceptable for that early in the day. So, low and behold, breakfast pizza was born, and I don't see myself ever going back to another weekend breakfast idea any time soon! Well, unless it has anything to do with guacamole goat cheese toast, but that's it. ;) Serving: 1 breakfast pizza 1 whole wheat, low carb tortilla 2-3 tablespoons of a…

Caprese Balsamic Soft Boiled Eggs

"Caprese-Salad-Soft-Boiled-Eggs"

I think one big misconception about eating a healthy diet is that there is so much prep and time that goes into it. In reality, I'm always finding ways to whip up meals and snacks that take less than 10 minutes.  The key is to keep certain staples around your house that are prepped beforehand. I like to meal prep one day during the week (usually Sunday nights or Monday nights) basic foods that I know can work in various recipes. These generally include: Brown rice Hard boiled eggs Soft boiled eggs Baked veggies Brown rice pasta or whole wheat pasta Spaghetti squash Tofu (or chicken, shrimp, ground turkey, or any other lean protein) Then, when the day comes, I can mix and match what I want to eat. The meals generally include: Stir…

Guacamole Goat Cheese Toast

"Chia-Avacado-Goat-Cheese-Toast"

When it comes to breakfast, lunch, dinner, (okay, literally any time of the day), avocado is my jam. I have a very similar love affair with goat cheese, so when I combine the two, something magical happens. If you remember my go-to breakfast for avocado English muffins, this post won't come as a surprise to you that this is still my ultimate go-to breakfast combo, but adding some variations to recipes never hurt anyone. In fact, I've found ways to improve on already stellar recipes (teriyaki chicken stir fry BAKE, anyone?) I was really craving some avocado toast the other morning, but I just had one problem: I didn't have any ripe avocados. However, I'm not one to give up that easily, and when I realized that I had some single servings of guacamole…
