Vitamin C smoothie

Hi friends! I’m off to Boston this morning for a fun Reebok event. This post was supposed to go up much earlier, but as I was about to upload, we had a bit of a… situation. One of the engines in the plane malfunctioned and we made an emergency landing in Dallas. It was the…

I have just the perfect pumpkin fall recipe to make your day even better–pumpkin protein fudge! 🙂 My day is off to a good start with a 40 minute tempo Oreo (10 minutes easy, 20 minutes fast, 10 minutes easy– the good stuff’s in the middle) and coffee. Always…

Apple Pie Smoothie

Even though it’s close to 100 degrees, I can still feel a hint of fall in the air. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but I’m gonna roll with it 😉 That’s where this apple pie smoothie comes in–it’s a great way to enjoy fall flavors even when the weather hasn’t gotten on board with what…

Cashew Brownie Batter Bites

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you may remember that I went to raw culinary school. I ate raw while I was there, and learned so much about nutrition, plating and knife skills. I also learned what it’s like to lack knife skills. I sliced my hand hacking a coconut, and there…

Grain-Free Vegan Thumbprint Cookies

For yesterday’s dinner, I had an awesome picnic in mind, but the rain had another idea. So hot bar inside it was.  Noodle has the hot bar routine down pat. We walk around and pick our eats, grab a drink (either water or a fresh juice) and then she looks up at me and says,…

Avocado mint chocolate chip ice cream

Hiii! Thank you so much for the wonderful anniversary wishes! <3 I was so excited to tell you about my run this morning. That is, until said run happened. Or didn’t happen, rather. I finally got new sneaks yesterday (Pearl Izumi) and took them for a 6-miler test run. My heel started throbbing after mile…

Homemade nut cheese

Whenever I see a food that looks AMAZING, I can’t.get.it.outta.my.mind until I get my fix. It happened recently when a green smoothie -I’ve been thinking about the blended salads I used to make so often!- and again when I read Gena’s post about nut cheese. It’s been quite a while since I’ve had nut-based cheese…

My version of the Bowl of the Gods

You knows it’s serious when you can’t stop thinking about a smoothie bowl. I don’t even love smoothie bowls all that much. Sure, I like them, and it’s a way to shake up the breakfast routine, but what can be sooooo special about eating your smoothie like a soup? Apparently a lot of things. I’ve…

Sweet Potato Pesto Pasta {gf with an easy Paleo/vegan option}

Last night was girls’ night since the Pilot had a late flight. When Liv woke up from a 3-hour nap (I finished up some to-dos, and even got to read and paint my toenails! Hallelujahhhhh), we had an awesome lunch together. I’d been wanting to make her something with fresh basil since she loves picking…

Berry Cheesecake Protein Fudge

If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw pictures of last night’s coyote sighting: (I can’t help but think, “They see me rollin’.. they hatin’…”) I was driving to Zumba and paused to let a pack of coyotes walk past. I snapped a quick shot from the side window and called the Pilot to…

Berry Crumble in a Jar

There are a lot of things I’ve been behind the trends with, and I’m ok with that. Skinny jeans (it took me a good two years to feel comfortable wearing them, which is funny now because they can actually be very flattering), a top knot (my mom got me one of those cool bunmaker things…
