Lemon Prosciutto Toast

A Weekend Toast. But seriously. Toast. This Toast. I made it twice in a row cause it was so mind-blowingly delicious. I know what you’re thinking… Yea, yea. Avocado toast. It’s tasty, but how great can it be? Trust me. It’s great. Also, I would encourage the fried prosciutto step. Don’t skip it. Prosciutto is…

Colombian Guacamole

Apparently Colombians are wayyyy better at guacamole than anyone else. I’m so fired up about this version that I’ve been putting it on everything. In salads, on eggs, on meatballs, inside rolled deli meat, spoonfuls straight in my mouth! There’s a blended mix of chilies, onion, and cilantro as well as hard-boiled eggs. The flavor…

Avocado Lime Egg Salad

I’m really excited because I’m about to go get some testing done at a local integrative facility called Movement RX. Back in January, I attended their Grand Opening party and actually WON THE RAFFLE! The prize? Some metabolic testing 😉 I’m not one to usually measure stuff like that. Since I have some weird food/body…

Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad

I have found that one of the best ways to stick to eating real, whole foods is a crazy delicious sauce. Some people use ketchup, others are impossibly addicted to hot sauce. Whatever your preference, if dousing your broccoli in butter is going make you more likely to eat your veggies, then I say go for…

Butternut Avocado Toast

Man I love toast. Well, that’s not true. What I really love is toppings. Toast is a vehicle for delicious toppings like eggs, avocado, butter, jelly, nut butter, etc… Regular ol’ gluten-free bread toast was definitely my JAM during pregnancy. I loved my Canyon Bakehouse slices with TONS of Kerrygold butter on top. Seriously. ALL…

Chocolate Fig Frosty

I love how the seasons change in Southern California. It’s gradual but unmistakable when the scent of autumn hits the air regardless of the reading on the thermometer (hint: It ain’t chilly). Changes like the oranges, reds, and yellows of seasonal produce hitting the market, tourists leaving our vacation destination town, and holiday advertisements infiltrating…

Chocolate PB Shake

This one is a surefire craving killer. Everyone knows that chocolate and peanut butter are the perfect combo. And while most people will likely be reaching for those leftover Reese’s Easter Eggs this week, YOU don’t have to! In fact, take the next 30 seconds to walk over to your Easter candy stash, pick it up, and…

Basil, Peach, and Bacon Salad

As we near the end of summer, I want to encourage you all to enjoy the fruits of the season in as many ways as possible! Contrary to common knowledge, fruit isn’t just a snack or something you put in a smoothie. If you want to get really creative in the kitchen, use fruit in your…

Turkey Chorizo Meatloaf

  I want to share with you one of my favorite grocery store items. Chorizo! And not just any chorizo… This particular chorizo is FANTASTICALLY delicious while also maintaining a low fat content. While I have no qualms with high-fat animal products, I am notably impressed when a lean sausage makes my taste buds happy. Most sausages are great…

Cinnamon Mocha Smoothie

My morning ritual has been recently been shaken up by a newfound gym commitment and a budding passion for dog walks on the trails instead of the concrete jungle of mid-city. The husband and I are the newest members of a local Crossfit. It’s been über fun lifting heavy and joining in the competitive spirt…
