Green Pumpkin Smoothie

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 12:01 am by

It’s still November so I’m still pumpkin obsessed! I hope you are, too…because I have a pumpkin recipe for you today (: A little secret – I don’t LOVE veggies (besides asparagus, of course). But I LOVE fruit. And I LOVE smoothies. So a good way for me to get my daily veggies is in smoothie form, because I can hardly taste the veggies but instead I taste the sweet fruit! I have a lot of pumpkin left in my kitchen... View Article

Healthy Fall Chili Recipe

Comfort food doesn’t have to destroy your progress…you just have to make it as healthy as you can and eat it in moderation. One of my favorite comfort foods is: CHILI! Especially around this time of year. I’ve actually never made my own chili, so I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out (uh it was my first time using a crockpot, too…I know I need to get with the times). I usually eat my Grandma’s chili, but... View Article

Pumpkin Protein Iced Coffee Recipe

Posted on October 22, 2014 at 12:01 am by

So here’s my logic on this one: pumpkin + coffee + protein = you can’t really lose now can you? I’m the typical fall-loving girl…pumpkin everything, fall-scented candles, leggings as pants, you know, the usual. But I have to do a lot of improvising since it’s hot in Florida still. Enter: the Pumpkin Protein Iced Coffee. I’m kind of repulsed by what’s in Starbucks’ PSL so I decided to make my own version: What You’ll Need: Cup of coffee Scoop... View Article

HAPPY OCTOBER! Did you see your new workout calendar? If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know that I love breakfast. I especially love overnight oats, because I’m not exactly a morning person. Now that it’s “fall” (I use that term lightly because it is still 95* here in Florida) I’ve added a kick to my overnight oats…go ahead, guess. PUMPKIN. Because don’t we try to eat all the pumpkin during this time of year?... View Article

Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too

Posted on September 8, 2014 at 12:01 am by

If you’ve read any recipe posts on this blog, you know that I have a sweet tooth. I’ve accepted it, and instead of a. panicking over it or b. giving in and eating ALL of the cookies, cake and ice cream, I’ve decided to make recipes that satisfy that sweet tooth without me having to sacrifice my waistline. I was scrolling through my Instagram feed last week and came on a post from one of my sister-in-laws. She posted a... View Article
