BBQ Roasted Chickpeas

This savory, healthy snack is perfect for hangry toddlers, packed in a purse for emergency snack mode, or awesome as a salad topping. Hi friends! How’s your Monday going? 4 weeks of workouts went out to my newsletter friends this morning, and I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying the plan! Madre and I took P […]

Sweet Potato, Goat Cheese and Turkey Bacon Egg Bake

That’s a mouthful, huh? This is a super healthy breakfast casserole dish you can make ahead for the week, with a unique sweet potato “crust.” 🙂 Lately we’ve been meal planning and prepping MACHINES. Thankfully, the Pilot decided to focus on eliminating sugar and cleaning up the eats the same time I did. It would be […]

cheers to the morning

Is anyone else so stoked that it’s March? It’s that first little hint of spring -ok, so in San Diego we have two seasons, but I’m not complaining- and I love all of the things there are to look forward to. I also love love love St. Patrick’s Day. I have fond memories of St. […]

Crispy shrimp, rice, and veggies with soy ginger sauce

Sounds good, right? Being pregnant and becoming a mom changed me in a lot of ways. Yes, it made me more patient, my heart more full, and my days more busy (yet fun!). Oh, and it made me like fried food. Like, a lot. When I was pregnant, even though many people said it was […]

Up your recovery game

Egg-less nog protein shake

 Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning. Yesterday was a great day. Liv, P and I met up with Jess and her daughter at the aquarium, (Liv is obsessed with her black boots) came back home and made dinner,  (this stew is AMAZING. We were out of quinoa so I added cooked brown rice. […]

Chef Kyle’s Pumpkin Spice Chia Pudding

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great afternoon. It’s been a wonderful week so far: a happy and euphoric blur, snuggling our newest family member as days blend into night. We’re hoping to head home from the hospital later today. Fingers crossed. 🙂 This week, I have some special posts going up while we’re getting settled. This one is […]

Banana flour chocolate chip cookies

Hellooooo. How was the long weekend? Anyone else moving in slow motion this morning? 😉 Behold, the latest and greatest on the gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo-friendly front: Banana Flour. (<— got it for $13 on Amazon) When I first heard about it, I was instantly intrigued since it’s fairly low in calories (100 per 1/4 cup […]

Almond butter ice cream cakes

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk, our very fave and a staple in the house. We’re going through a bit of a heat wave right now. It’s deceiving because the temp says 83, but with 100% humidity, you have one uncomfortable huffing and puffing person over here. I’ve always been someone […]

Healthy banana chocolate chip muffins

Hi friends. What a day over here. Everyone talks about the 2s being rough, and I hate to scare anyone, but the 3s are the real deal. (My mom also said to watch out for the 4s haha.) While there is way more *good* than tough over here, not every day is rainbows and acai […]

Healthy turkey sausage and shrimp jambalaya

Hi friends! How’s the day going so far? So happy you liked the playlist! Lots of good stuff on there. 🙂 New post up on the Family page if you’d like to check it out.  It was a lovely day for barre, (when your socks are kind of crooked but fixing them = bending over. […]

How do you get your kids to eat vegetables?

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Bitsy’s Brainfood. We’ve always been thankful that for the most part, Liv is an adventurous eater. She loves things that I didn’t enjoy until my 20s (like quinoa, artichokes, pho, chia pudding, and green juices to name a few), and I’m glad that she’ll at least try […]
