With spring on our doorstep, the season for green is upon us and I think that carries over into the foods we eat….
One of my all-time favorite snack is dates with almond butter, and another combo I’m crazy about is apple with cinnamon and almond butter.
I’m telling you, if almond butter is involved, it’s hard for me not to love a snack. Not only is it delicious, but there’s the whole healthy fat satiation factor….
Like anything else, each season poses different challenges for food blogging.
Take winter, for instance….
Coconut is one of the most versatile, amazing ingredients ever. (Seriously.)…
What? Wait WHAT, are you adding to those muffins?!
Why yes, honey, yes it is, I replied to my hubby with a smile one day as I was caught red-handed. (Haha, literally, I guess, since I’m always red after handling beets. Corny joke, sorry.)…
Homemade granola is one of my favorite weekday morning breakfasts that always feels like a treat.
No matter what kind of granola you make, homemade is so much better than anything you can buy at the store, plus, it’s the sort of thing that you just feel healthy eating….
One thing about myself that I’m always trying to improve is being able to live in the moment.
There’s always always some kind of work to do (that’s the nature of life!), and I’m often so consumed by it that I don’t take time for life’s little pleasures….
I have a real thing for cold desserts in winter.
I’ll literally go months without so much as a spoonful of ice cream and then find myself craving it in the middle of January….
When it comes to eating healthy, homemade meals are the way to go.
But eating at home requires planning, as well as a method to get it all done. Not to mention lots of motivation to want to do it because the task of menu planning, shopping, meal prep, and cooking for three meals a day (plus snacks) for however many people you have to feed is almost another part-time job!…
Sometimes dessert just calls for a whipped cream-like topping.
If you don’t eat dairy, regular whipped cream is out. Coconut “whipped cream” is pretty common, but what if you want something just a little different? (I love coconut as much as the next girl – probably more, actually – but I have to admit, even I can get a little sick of it.)…
