Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday. I was craving something sweet today and didn’t want to ruin my diet, so I decided to make a strawberry smoothie bowl for a snack. Smoothie bowls are awesome- it’s just a smoothie poured into a bowl and topped with all of your favorite toppings.

Healthy Green Egg Salad

I love egg salad, but I am not the biggest fan of mayo. This was my first time experimenting using an avocado instead, and it came out great. The texture is perfect and the flavor is spot on. I love using celery in it for some added crunch, but if you don’t have it you can definitely omit it.

Blueberry Cinnamon Smoothie

I am always looking for new smoothie recipes to make at home. I recently was in a cute lunch spot in Boston and tried this delicious smoothie made with blueberries, cinnamon and dates. I never thought to put cinnamon in the smoothie, but I absolutely loved it. The cinnamon adds a spicy sweetness and makes you feel like you’re eating a treat.

Healthy Veggie Fried Rice

I have always loved fried rice, but it’s generally not the cleanest food out there. It traditionally consists of white rice , which we know is a processed grain and provides zero nutritional benefits, and it often contains pork which provides unnecessary saturated fat.

Eggplant “Meat” Balls

Oh my goodness, these are my most favorite meatless meatballs ever! They are made with lots of veggies and two different kinds of cheese. They are so flavorful and very healthy as well. My favorite part is the texture- they’re crispy and crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside.

Banana Peanut Butter Froyo

I’m sure by now you’ve seen recipes for banana ice cream or b’nice cream. It’s essentially just food processing a frozen banana with ingredients of your choice such as various seasonings and/or nut butters. My version is slightly different from that, however, and includes Greek  yogurt. The reason why I like to include this is to give the b’nice cream, or in this case froyo some added protein. It also creates a creamy texture and makes you think that you’re eating the real deal.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

It’s the first day of October which means (in my head) it’s PUMPKIN season! As much as I love pumpkin, I refuse to bake or cook with it in September, as September is still a summer month to me. October, however, is the first full month of fall, so I decided today was the perfect day to make some pumpkin goodness.

Avocado Toast

It seems that everyone has their own version of avocado toast these days. I am partial to my version, but let’s be honest, I’ve never met an avocado toast I haven’t liked! I actually was inspired to make this recipe after having it at a local restaurant a couple of years ago. It has honey and red pepper flakes which I know sounds like an odd combination, but trust me… it’s amazing.
