Honey Bear Smoothie

There’s a local smoothie place that makes a fantastic Honey Bear smoothie.  I would swing by and grab one as a quick lunch sometimes.  It. Is. So. Good.  But!  They moved across town.  Darnit. I found a few recipes (apparently Honey Bear smoothies are a thing) and I came up with this one that I swear is better than the one I used to buy for however much. I told myself I wasn’t going to post another smoothie for a...

Dark Chocolate No Bake Energy Bites

dark chocolate no bake energy bites

Energy bites popped on the scene a few years ago and they are such a great substitute for granola bars.  I kinda feel like granola bars probably have a shelf life for…what 20 years?  Who knows.  I lost my taste for store bought energy bars, protein bars or any kind of bars you find at the store years ago. I have made a few energy bite recipes, but I stumbled onto this one from Chef Savvy and it’s my favorite! I’ve...

Banana Kale Smoothie

Banana Kale Smoothie

Follow Me! Banana kale smoothies have become a staple at our house.  Kale has been the it green for the last few years and for good reason.  It packs twice the vitamin-C as spinach. The problem?  Most people just can’t stomach it.  It’s kinda bitter right?  The best and easiest way to get our leafy greens is in a smoothie.  And we can hide the bitter flavor with other things like bananas. This is my go-to smoothie more than anything else....

Cacao Mint Cocoa

Follow Me! If you look at an ingredient list of powdered hot chocolate, you’ll kinda feel like you’re drinking a cup of pixie stick. At least I do. So, the other day in our little Texas town we had a chilly day and I had a hankering for a hot chocolate.  I made a switch to cacao a while back.  It tastes similar to your normal powdered chocolate but it’s actually healthy. Cacao is cold-pressed and unroasted, therefore keeping the living...

2 Day Detox

2 Day Detox

Follow Me! My husband jokes that we don’t need to detox. Our liver does it. I think he’s right. But, for me it’s more of a reset.  It’s a great way to get your body back in balance after a vacation or the holidays. What it does in theory, is that a detox gives your liver a break from filtering out bad foods you’re eating. Then, it works on flushing out your system of toxins in your body. When my husband and I...
