3-Minute Skinny Peppermint Mocha

Starbucks! They know me! Source I tend to stay away for the most part during the warmer months.. (which, let’s be real, is 97% of the time in Tucson.) I can make my own coffee at home, and save for the occasional iced green tea lemonade, it’s rare that I’ll hit up the SB drive…

Vegan brown rice pudding

Wrap my soul in a rice pudding blanket? Don’t mind if I doooooooooo. For someone who has a strong memory, my brain has become a little fuzzy over time. As much as I wish I could, I don’t remember every single Christmas. There are a few that stick out vividly in my mind, and little…

Healthy Chocolate Sauce

Things have been very savory on ye ol’ blog lately. I can’t even remember the last time I posted a sweet recipe! Please accept this as a token of apology. I was thinking about a chocolate sundae ALL morning yesterday. Usually after teaching Zumba, my thought process looks something like the following: -That was SOOOOOO…

Cranberry Quinoa “Stuffing”

Why must turkey be the official Thanksgiving mascot? It makes me sad because I know so much work goes into preparing an entire turkey, but to me, the meal could do without it. This is also coming from the girl who prefers deli meat over roasted. *Hides head in shame* We were at Eclectic Cafe…

Homemade Almond Milk + flavor variations

I’ve never been a huge fan of drinking milk plain. Even when I was younger, if it wasn’t colored and flavored with the Cocoa Puffs I was eating, I wasn’t a huge fan. I’ve remained that way with milk, until I met almond variety. To me, it tastes so much lighter and milder than the…

Amazeballs flavor variations

I’m pretty sure there’s nothing in the world that’s more adorable than a table full of babies in their diapers painting pumpkins. Before Liv was born, I used to have groups of friends over all the time, at least once a week. I love cooking for others and entertaining, but since Liv has been here,…

Every day would include beautiful and random adventures oh, and noodles and cookies would be calorie-free. Actually, I have no prob with the calories in cookies. Every time I have a…

Chili Mango Slushy

I have a delicious summery treat for you today, inspired by my heritage: chili mango slushy. My love of spicy food could be explained by many different factors, but I really think my addiction is hereditary. My nana eats jalapeños like they’re baby bell peppers. I live for green corn tamales -our tamale guy makes…

Almond butter banana fudgesicles

When I did the South Beach thing, I was always looking for ways to still get in dessert. As a girl with a major sweet tooth, I was scary excited to see all of the sugar-free options out there. Not all of them were South Beach-approved, but an easy way to get in my chocolate…

Spicy almond butter zucchini chips

A couple of weeks ago, I got my hair Keratin-ized. It had been over a year (!) and I was so excited to defrizzify my mane. Madre hooked it up -you can read more about the type of treatment I get here– and I gave myself a kink by wearing a ponytail a couple of…
