Blue Protein Smoothie Bowl

blue protein smoothie bowl

We have smoothies all the time around here, but we rarely have smoothie bowls.  Honestly, it’s just a thicker version of a smoothie dumped into a bowl.  The fun part is you can add tons of toppings.  So, instead of drinking your breakfast through a straw, you can add some crunchy stuff such as homemade granola or make it protein packed with hemp.  With this blue protein smoothie bowl, you can start your day with loads of antioxidants and enough...

Clean Eating Banana Bread

clean eating banana bread

Since summer has flown by for most, or gone way too slowly in our case, we find ourselves already getting ready for school to start.  On school mornings, one of the trickiest things I find between running around looking for shoes and making sure the library book made it in the backpack is…is that we’ve gotta find a way to get a healthy breakfast in the belly.  Banana bread is one of the easiest breakfasts for school mornings and a...

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...

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Growing up my parents always made scrambled eggs a bit on the slimy side.  And you know what, that is the way to go if you ask me!  I guess slimy isn’t the best word.  Let’s call it medium rare.  The perfect scrambled eggs.  But, perfect is relative, I guess.  Just like steak, people like their eggs a certain way. You don’t have to eat them “medium-rare”, so I’m not going to guide you that direction, but I will tell...

Blueberry Chia Jam

Those mornings where you feel like something sweet but not too sweet!  I had one of those this morning.  I made some blueberry chia jam and it was ridiculously easy and took about 5 minutes.  For reals! I’ve kinda lost my taste for store bought jam, it’s so loaded with sugar and you can hardly taste the fruit. There’s something so good about homemade jam.  We had a peach tree growing up that would decide to give us fruit every...

Sweet Potato Hash

Sweet Potato Hash

Follow Me! Every time I see a picture of sweet potato hash my mouth waters.  So, this morning, after the family slept in super late, it felt like a brunch day. I found a couple of sweet potatoes, a purple onion, some eggs and yes! We have a meal. Now, for your delicious brunch… Turn your oven to 450 degrees.  Dice your purple onion and 2 sweet potatoes.  Keep the peel on the potatoes and dice to about 1/2 inch cubes. Toss...

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....

Gluten Free Waffles

Follow Me! I got this recipe for gluten free waffles from my wonderful (and extremely fit) sister-in-law.  Thanks Bethany!  She made these for my niece’s first birthday party and they were a hit! Why is gluten free a thing? At first I was just curious what all the hype was about.  So,  I tried it. Slowly, I switched the carbs I ate toward less gluten.  Then, went totally gluten free for a while.  I noticed a lot of less swelling in...

Chia Pudding

Follow Me! Chia pudding.  MMMMM.  That sounds delicious doesn’t it! Actually, it’s pretty good.  And I wouldn’t eat it if it tastes bad. This recipe is basically 2 ingredients and the rest is up to you. It’s detox friendly and super easy and quick.  It also fills you up in the morning. Chia seeds are a wonderful thing to keep stocked in your pantry.  They’re packed with fiber, protein, calcium and low in calories.  So, per calorie, they’re one of the...

Lavender Coffee Creamer

Follow Me! We were on a trip recently when I tried lavender creamer in my coffee.  I was hooked.  So, I came home and played around with some ingredients and came up with my own recipe! All you need for one weeks worth of luscious creamer for your coffee is 1 can of Coconut Milk, 1 Tablespoon of Lavender and 2 Tablespoons of Maple syrup. Pour your can of coconut milk in a small saucepan.  The coconut milk separates so it’s...
