Tropical Smoothie

Tropical Smoothie

My go-to smoothie has always been strawberry and banana, but this Tropical Smoothie has become a new favorite. I’m not even a super huge fan of pineapple, so that’s saying something. It just tastes so amazing, especially after a tough workout. […]

Jalapeño Strawberry Smoothie

Jalapeno Strawberry Smoothie

A Jalapeño and Strawberry Smoothie recipe probably isn’t something I would’ve thought to make on my own. However, I’m glad I discovered this delicious pairing of flavors! It’s been getting warmer by the day, and ice cream is something that has been sounding really good lately. There’s a local restaurant here in McKinney called Nom Nom’s Grill and Chill that makes its own ice cream. We decided to try it out one afternoon recently, and they had some out of the ordinary flavor combinations. […]

Einkorn Coconut Waffles

Einkorn Coconut Waffles

My aunt gave us a waffle iron for Christmas years ago, and I hadn’t really used it much until the last year or so. It makes heart-shaped waffles, so I might’ve made them once or twice for Valentines’s day, but that’s about it. But now, it’s something I’ll make about once a week. […]

Coconut Overnight Oats

Coconut Overnight Oats

I think I may be the last person on Earth to jump on the overnight oats bandwagon. We were on a low carb and grain-free diet when I first started seeing pictures of it on other people’s blogs. So, I didn’t even consider trying it until just recently. Wow, I totally get why people like it so much. It’s so easy and breakfast is ready to go when you wake up. It’s not something we’ll eat a ton of, but it’s nice to have another option besides eggs. […]

Einkorn Protein Muffins with Bacon

Einkorn Protein Muffins with Bacon

Hey guys! Hope you are all having a great weekend! It’s cold and rainy here in DFW today. The kind of day where you just want to stay inside and do nothing. At least, that’s my plan. My sister, on the other hand, drove to Waco to wait in line to shop at Magnolia Market. Speaking of which, we still haven’t managed to make the trip down there to see it for ourselves. ? My mom has also been, and she bought an olive bucket for me there. 🙂 […]

It’s been so hot lately that a no-cook meal or snack is a really awesome thing to have on hand. And one that includes mini chocolate chips and coconut? Yes, that’s a really good idea, too. Including a good dose of protein, healthy fats and carbs, this is a great way to start the day. The chocolate chips are just an added treat. […]

Baked Eggs with Mozzarella and Bacon

Baked Eggs with Mozzarella and Bacon

I wish that I had a picture of these babies the second they came out of the oven. They puffed up so pretty in the oven! Almost like a souffle. Unfortunately, by the time I got them arranged on my table setting, they had fallen. 🙁 Oh well, they tasted awesome anyway! Like crazy awesome. […]

Banana Cherry and Peanut Butter Smoothie

Banana Cherry and Peanut Butter Smoothie

On the days where I go running or walking early in the morning, I don’t really like to eat a real breakfast before I head out. Solid food just doesn’t sound good, so smoothies are a great alternative. Plus, you can whip them up in no time. I want to have plenty of energy when I’m out there running, and smoothies like this are perfect for that. It provides some protein, as well as healthy carbs. […]

Strawberry-Blueberry Compote

Strawberry-Blueberry Compote

Sure, maple syrup is great on waffles and pancakes. Everybody knows that, but how about we switch things up a bit and top them with a little syrupy and delicious fruit compote instead? Even though I’m more of a savory breakfast kind of gal, I do occasionally enjoy something sweet in the morning. […]
