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.
Happy new year, everyone! I hope 2017 brings so much love, joy, good health and good food to all of you! I wanted to share my absolute favorite breakfast recipe with you in celebration of the new year.
I am so excited about this recipe. I have read about sweet potato toast, but this was my first time making it. Basically, you slice a sweet potato lengthwise into 1/4 inch-thick slices. Then you bake it for a half hour. You can choose to eat it then or save it and re-toast it at a later date.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have always loved eating oatmeal for breakfast. Since discovering overnight oats, I have been making it multiple times a week because it’s so simple and delicious.
I have been obsessed with making power balls for the last couple of years. They are the perfect combination of salty and sweet and make the perfect quick breakfast or easy snack.
