Two Ingredient Peach Soft Serve

Two Ingredient Peach Soft Serve

We are a frozen dessert family. Ice cream, frozen yogurt, popsicles, ice cream sandwiches – we love it all! But alas, eating ice cream everyday is probably not ideal from a nutritional standpoint. So I’m constantly seeking out healthier versions of frozen treats — and inventing my own — that allow us to indulge a little more wisely.… Continue Reading

Lemon Cupcakes and Thoughts on Eating “In the Middle”

Lemon Cupcakes and Thoughts on Eating “In the Middle”

I’ve always loved food, but until about 13 years ago, I spent more time stressing about food than I did actually enjoying it. Throughout my teens and early twenties, I was constantly thinking about what I should eat, had eaten, or was going to eat later.  Like many women, I tried all sorts of diets and self-imposed eating restrictions in an attempt to… Continue Reading

Red Chili Dark Chocolate Frosty

Red Chili Dark Chocolate Frosty

On Valentine’s Day, I put my healthy eating routine on hold. This is partly because I cannot resist cinnamon red hots, and partly because it’s fun to indulge in rare treats like steak, butter-filled baked goods and rich chocolate. One of my favorite ways to celebrate this not-really-holiday is by adding a little kick to chocolatey desserts. Last year I made Sweet and… Continue Reading

Naturally Pink Rice Crispy Treats

Naturally Pink Rice Crispy Treats

Just when we’ve gotten into a healthy eating groove after the holiday cookie frenzy, Valentine’s Day pops up. Though it’s not as intensely focused on sweets and doesn’t last as long, those red-and-pink M&M’s on display everywhere sure do look tempting! In an effort to distract Lucy (and myself) from all the artificially colored store-bought treats we… Continue Reading
