Chocolate Chia Mousse

Chocolate Chia Mousse

Whenever I see a recipe for a green smoothie, chia pudding or protein ball that the creator claims “tastes exactly like a chocolate chip cookie [or whatever delicious thing he/she is trying to replicate] only 100% healthy!!” – I’m skeptical. Because I have yet to meet a recipe built around avocado, chia seeds, or protein powder that truly… Continue Reading

Sesame Ginger Avocado Dip

Sesame Ginger Avocado Dip

I love a good Chip Buffet on Superbowl Sunday. But I also like to balance all that delicious salt and grease with some light, crunchy veggies. Just to feel even, you know? Of course, those store-bought vegetable platters are never very appealing. At best they include refrigerated tomatoes (the worst!), dried out baby carrots, and mediocre ranch dressing. Not… Continue Reading

Low Sugar Blueberry Banana Muffins

Low Sugar Blueberry Banana Muffins

If I decided to serve muffins for every meal from here on out, I doubt I’d ever hear a complaint from my kids. They love them more than almost anything!

Even if she likes all the ingredients in a soup, she’d rather eat everything separately. But for some reason she loves this… Continue Reading

Blackberry Hemp Seed Power Bowl

Blackberry Hemp Seed Power Bowl

I grew up in Seattle, where you can find blackberry bushes growing literally everywhere, from parks to street corners. Come mid-July these prickly weeds begin to bear the sweetest, juiciest, most delicious berries imaginable. Multiple times every summer, my family would head to our favorite “secret” picking spots and load up on berries. Admittedly, my brother and I… Continue Reading

Super Clean Green Smoothie

Super Clean Green Smoothie

I love the fresh start of a new year. The chance to reflect on the past and make plans for the future is so freeing, and always gives me so much hope. But there’s one thing I dread about January: the dieting. Though I personally never “diet” (see my own tricks here), it kills me to… Continue Reading
