Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Grain Free Granola Bars

My sister recently introduced me to Kind Bars as a clean-ish, low carb snack option while I'm trying to lose this baby weight. I'm not normally huge into protein bars, because let's face it, they're usually about as healthy for you as a candy bar, but I did like that they are made with mostly... Continue Reading →

Pork and Sweet Potato Baked Wontons

I don't know about you, but every time I get Chinese or Thai food, I need those cream cheese filled fried wontons (and to be honest I could probably just eat those and be happy). This weekend I was craving these, but I wasn't in the mood for a whole meal of Thai or Chinese.... Continue Reading →

Easy Homemade Guacamole

Guacamole is probably the recipe I make most often (I'm talking at least once but sometimes twice a week!). My one year old son absolutely loves it. He would literally just stick his face in the bowl if we let him, and so yeah, we have guacamole a lot. And I'm okay with that because... Continue Reading →

Protein Puppy Chow

It's my husband's birthday week, so I'm taking his requests for what I make this weekend. The first thing he requested was my Grain Free, Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies. He just cleaned out my freezer stash of these cookies last week and already wants more! I even said, "Are you sure you don't want... Continue Reading →

Simple Homemade Hummus

Hummus is one of my all time favorite snack foods, and it is one of those things that is really and truly better homemade. Kind of like cookies. You know how you can taste the difference between a processed cookie out of a bag and a freshly baked homemade cookie? I taste the same difference... Continue Reading →

No Bake Energy Balls (That taste like a Reese’s Cup!!)

Energy balls are some of the best treats to have on hand for a couple of reasons, and I want to tell you why! 1. They are so easy to make and NO BAKE! 2. They are made with REAL food and you can hide superfoods like chia seeds or flax seeds inside. 3. They... Continue Reading →

The Perfect High Protein, Low Carb Snack: Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

I'm always looking in the pantry for something to snack on in between lunch and dinner, and there's never any healthy options. Of course I want chips and salsa or popcorn or whatever else is in there, but it's really all just processed carbs with no nutritional value. When I discovered roasted chickpeas, it was...

Overnight Chia Seed Pudding

My son and I have gotten into a bit of a summer weekday routine that I absolutely love-- we go up the road to a local park, and he points to dogs and waves from his jogging stroller while I run a few miles around the lake. Then, we go to the playground, and he... Continue Reading →

The BEST Healthy, Homemade Chunky Granola

Granola is one of those snacks I like to have on hand all of the time. You can put it on plain greek yogurt drizzled with a little maple syrup, add to the top of a smoothie for a little crunch, or just snack on it plain instead of chips or pretzels. I even eat... Continue Reading →

“Fertility” Trail Mix

As a disclaimer, I am not a doctor nor am I a nutritionist. I am just a firm believer that the food I eat has power, lots of power. I think that food can be used as a fuel to make your body stronger and healthier and do the things it's supposed to do better. I have... Continue Reading →
