Orange Power Smoothie

We officially hit summer here. And by that, I mean it is HOT! Thankfully, a couple splash pads and our HOA pool have opened. But I still feel hot most of the day. I try to exercise first thing in the morning. First, it just gets it out of the way and starts my day… Continue reading Orange Power Smoothie

Apple Almond Butter French Toast

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, a day full of romance. Valentine's Day food is generally fairly decadent - chocolate, candlelit steak dinners, cheesy pastas, etc. But you can always show someone you love them with a healthier option.

Shakshuka

Happy Hump Day! Wednesday at our house is breakfast for dinner night. I love this tradition for several reasons. First, I don't have to think about it too much when I'm meal planning. It's set.

Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal

How are your health resolutions going? Are you going strong or have you fallen off the bandwagon already? No shame either way. I've met some of my goals, slipped at others. Here's the thing I think most people forget: it is a goal for ALL of 2018. So if it takes until December 31 to… Continue reading Slow Cooker Overnight Oatmeal

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie

Who has eaten dessert for breakfast? Cake, cookies, pie? I certainly have. Apple crisp is my personal favorite, because it is the easiest to "justify" - it's just fruit with "granola" on top, right. We've all been there (I think). It reminds me of this Bill Cosby skit about chocolate cake. Well, this smoothie is… Continue reading Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie

Asparagus, Red Pepper, and Goat Cheese Frittata

Sorry I've been MIA for a couple months. I've had several projects taking up my time, including a nutrition project I'm hoping to share with you all very soon. Whenever I think about frittatas, I picture Harrison Ford in the movie Morning Glory. If you haven't seen it, he plays a crusty old man who… Continue reading Asparagus, Red Pepper, and Goat Cheese Frittata
