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...

Frothy Chai Smoothie

If you’re craving a Frappuccino and you just don’t want the calories or get in your car and sit in a long line at Starbucks, this is a great alternative.  An ice cold frothy chai smoothie is just the ticket on a hot summer day. Sometimes, I want a little treat that isn’t fruity.  I know it has bananas in it.  But, I put a banana in nearly every one of my smoothies.  And, even if you’re not into them,...

No Guilt Mint Chocolate Mousse

I first tried a similar recipe for this chocolate mousse about a year ago when I was on a detox and it’s my go to chocolate treat in the evening whether I’m detoxing or not!  It’s completely healthy so you’re only getting benefits when you eat this. I decided to try it with chlorophyll to add a minty flavor and it’s fantastic! With avocado, cacao and chlorophyll as the key ingredients, this recipe is completely dairy and refined sugar free.  No...

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.

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...

Clean Nutty Granola

So, I stumbled onto a recipe of homemade nutty granola and it was fantastic.  As I’ve made it over the past year, I have changed the recipe to my liking.  My version is filled with as many nuts as I can find in my pantry!  So here goes… Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. If you don’t have pecans, use walnuts!  If you don’t have pumpkin seeds, use something else.  Get my drift?  This recipe is hard to screw up....
