Simple Chocolate Sauce

For the past few weeks, I’ve had fleeting thoughts of banana splits. Now this is unsual because; 1. I don’t eat dairy which means I’m not a frequent ice cream consumer. 2. I’ve never really been a banana split-sundae kind of girl. Even as a kid, I mostly just wanted the ice cream and not all the…

What’s in my Grocery Basket?

The first installment of “What’s in my Grocery Basket?” was a great success, so here we are again! Another week, another grocery trip. This week I will share my one day purchases from 3 different stores (yes THREE… I wasn’t lying last post…) I revisiting my new discovery, Wholesome Choice and my regulars Whole Foods…

Banana Mocha Smoothie

  This smoothie is more like a milkshake than a smoothie. Which is great when you’re needing something sweet and indulgent without all the nasty ingredients of a typical milkshake. Sip it by the pool or on a indian summer evening. It’s so delicious!     Banana Mocha Smoothie 1 frozen banana 1/2 avocado 2…

Raw Goji and Cacao Bars

Almond pulp. If you make your own almond milk, you’ve undoubtedly had the dilemma of, “what do I do with all this leftover pulp?” Well, say hello to my Raw Goji and Cacao Bars. They are the perfect solution. They are also a delicious energy boost. Especially if you can eat them. I can’t, so I…

Raw Cranberry Orange Bars

I know everyone LOVES larabars because they are so clean! While they are definitely a Clean Plate approved purchase, there’s no reason you can’t just make your own (save money)! I’ve made my fair share of “larabar” knock-offs and original flavors! Ginger Date Bars Apple Pie Bars Chocolate Cherry Bites  Chocolate Minty Bites Chocolate “PB”…

I wanted the chocolate coating to act more like…

Chocolate-Coated Almond Butter Dates

Fall is in full swing around here. I had a pretty gorgeous (albeit FREEZING) walk the other morning… I’m also still fully committed to my new workout/diet regimen. Here’s a little taste of my tuesday workout. My week looks something like this: 2-3 days of weight training 5-7 days of yoga (30 min – 60…

Food Critic Friday 3.0 and Prosciutto-Wrapped Dates

My husband and I have about a 2 min and 15 sec walk from our front door to a fantastic pizzeria called Brick. Brick is a lifesaver on certain nights when the chef of the house (aka ME) is not inclined to cook and the man of the house is Hangry after a surf.. Brick’s…

Chocolate “PB” Balls

If you do not understand the quotation marks in the title, they mean that these lil’ guys do not have peanut butter. That means they are paleo and a good snack for all our peanut-allergic friends. They are also highly addictive, so I suggest that you make them when there are people around so you…
