Egg-Free Breakfast Ideas

Sick of eating eggs for breakfast? Or maybe you’re avoiding eggs due to an allergy or sensitivity? Don’t worry, there’s plenty of egg-free breakfasts to eat! Breakfast has always been a tough choice for me. I normally wake up wanting nothing to do with food, but I’ve been forcing myself to eat breakfast because after skipping it for about a year, I realized that skipping breakfast was not doing me any favors. I personally don’t care much for eggs (although…

Gingerbread Coffee

Gingerbread Coffee (Serves 2) One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the seasonal coffee flavors. Back in the day I lived for going to Starbucks and getting either a Gingerbread Latte or an Eggnog Latte (never a Peppermint Mocha because I despise mint chocolate). Now that I’m more conscious about what I put into my body, I make my own versions of these delicious coffee treats! Gingerbread Latte’s were my usual go-to, and this year I finally…

Toasted Almond “Iced Coffee”

Dandy Blend is an instant “coffee alternative” made from dandelions. It tastes similar to coffee, but it’s caffeine-free. Dandelions are great for the liver and detoxifying the body. I like to drink Dandy Blend when I’m craving coffee later in the day. I normally only drink two cups of coffee in the morning, so I’ll have this toasted almond flavored drink at night for a treat. It’s also a great alternative to people who love coffee but can’t drink it.…

Pumpkin Butter Recipe

Fall is in the air! I get so excited when fall rolls around because that means it’s time for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! I love all the fall treats and apple cider, apple picking, pumpkin picking, fall fashion and just about everything fall has to offer. The only downside is that it’s followed by winter- which I hate. This pumpkin butter recipe was inspired by the pumpkin butter that was served with the bread at a restaurant I ate at when I…

“Peanut Butter” Protein Shake (peanut-free)

  Do you suffer from peanut allergies? Let sunbutter come to your rescue! Sunbutter doesn’t taste exactly like peanut butter, but it’s a really great substitute. Peanut butter shakes are so creamy and delicious, which inspired me to make this one made with sunbutter. I have an obsession with the TV show Friends- like serious obsession. It’s my favorite show & my therapy when I’m feeling bad. You know like when you’re having one of those “isn’t that just kick you…

Blueberry Explosion Protein Muffins (grain/nut-free)

I’ve been eating a lot of collagen lately. I mix it in my protein shakes, put it in my coffee, eat Bulletproof collagen protein bars, & now I’m making protein muffins with it! It definitely does have anti-aging benefits- my acne scars have been clearing up and I have younger looking skin. Collagen is also great for your joints & digestive system. The brand I use is Vital Proteins. To make the muffins grain-free and nut-free, I used Otto’s cassava…

Chocolate Strawberry Protein Shakes

  Who loves ice cream?? Me! Me! Me! Okay, this isn’t really ice cream, but it sure does remind me of ice cream and I put it in an ice cream cup- so let’s just call this protein-packed ice cream. Cool? Cool. I did have to eat this with a spoon rather than drink it with the straw. It’s the perfect cold, creamy treat after a tough workout in the heat of summer. I’m really getting into the protein shakes-…

Coconut Mango Protein Shake

  So I’ve been training for about two months now and I am starting to see results! I’m so happy- I love watching my muscles form and feeling stronger. I’m also feeling better about myself after I had gained weight last summer/winter. My weight has always been up and down, but whenever I gain weight I really feel sad about it. While my focus is mainly on health rather than on weight loss, I do feel better about myself when…
