Do you follow me on Instagram? If you don’t, then click over here and follow!


Yesterday I asked my instagram followers to choose between two recipe posts and this one was the winner! Lucky for you, there is also a BONUS recipe at the bottom. I mean, who doesn’t want coffee cake with their coffee and tasty new coffee creamer? No one. That’s who.

The lovely Elana Amsterdam has a fantastic coffee cake recipe on her site and while making this coffee creamer, I experimented with using the leftover pecan pulp in lieu of almonds for the crumble topping for the cake. IN.CRED.I.BLE. To make the cake, head over to her page in the link below and then follow my instructions on this page for the delightful topping.

Now go and upgrade your morning!

3 large medjool dates, pitted

  1. Drain and rinse pecans.
  2. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
  3. Strain liquid through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth into a bowl or pitcher. Freeze the pecan and date pulp for later use*! (see below)

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
