Strawberry Kiwi Muffins (Gluten Free)

Strawberries and kiwis are my two favorite fruits and they’re a common flavor combination. I thought it might be interesting to try them together in muffins – blended into the batter. To be honest, the strawberry kiwi flavor is just slightly in the background of these muffins, although I definitely enjoyed them. These muffins are pretty dense and filling made with almond flour, cashew butter, and coconut oil. Try them for a gluten free breakfast on the go or as…

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…

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…

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. It also helps your hair grow and your nails stronger. The brand I use is Vital Proteins.…

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…

Strawberry Strudel Protein Shakes

I started working out with a personal trainer about two┬ámonths ago and he is kicking my ass! His workouts are super tough and I am LOVING it! I decided to try drinking protein shakes so I can help rebuild/repair my muscles after all the heavy lifting. After looking into different protein powders- egg white protein, beef protein, & whey protein, I decided grass-fed whey protein was the way to go. I normally avoid dairy as much as possible (I’ll indulge…

Dairy-Free Kefir Parfaits

  So, I’ve been wanting to experiment with fermented foods for a long time. I eat fermented foods. I’ve just never made my own, until now. I bought a book on fermenting foods about two years ago and have been so distracted, so I never tried. Someone I know had more kefir grains than he was able to keep up with and offered some to me. I took that as a sign it was time to finally try fermenting foods.…
