Today I'm sharing my boyfriend's signature guacamole! It's his favorite dish to make for parties and potlucks. His secret ingredient (missing from the photo below) is the serrano pepper which adds both flavor and heat.Read More
My friend, Christine, told me about this recipe on our walk the other day. I was telling her about how I bought the pre-cooked, ready-to-eat Steamed Lentils from Trader Joe's and didn't know what the heck to do with them. "Emily, you have GOT to try the Lentil Bruschetta Dip. It's a thing now. It's gone viral."Read More
The other night after dinner, I was craving something sweet. Since I don't keep any pre-made sweets at home, I have to make dessert if I want dessert! So with only 4 ingredients, I came up with something simple that I'm going to share with you today.
The portion size is teeny tiny, but just enough to satisfy your taste buds.
What's awesome is that this dessert is high in fat and protein (so it'll fill you up) and it's cleanse-friendly (so you won't feel bloated or experience a sugar hangover afterward).Read More
I'm a total lightweight when it comes to alcohol.
I've always had a super low tolerance (which has gotten even lower with age) and these days I rarely drink at all.
Even at the height of my high school and college "partying" days, I physically could not consume more than 2 drinks in an entire night, no matter how hard I tried. However, I didn't let this deter me from going out and being social.Read More
Since I've had hard-boiled eggs on my mind, today I'm going show you how I cook them so you can make them too!
Why? Because they're a super easy, make-ahead snack and a convenient way to add protein to any meal. Plus they're relatively inexpensive.
There are a bunch of different techniques out there, but this is the one I like the best.Read More
When I was in high school, someone told me: "The words 'I can't' are best used sparingly." It's been over fifteen years and I still remember that.
It's a great piece of advice, isn't it?
How we think and what we say can make a huge impact on our habits and behaviors.Read More
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I've posted some pictures of my weekly Veggie Egg Bake (which I make every Sunday night to enjoy Monday thru Friday).
A lot of these kinds of egg recipes I see floating around the internet are super skimpy when it comes to veggies...we're talkin' 75% eggs, 25% veggies. We can do better than that!Read More
I love salads but sometimes I'm just not in the mood for lettuce, spinach or other leafy greens. I threw together this concoction and it came out so good that I ended up eating it two more times that same week!
The healthy fat from the avocado filled me up, the nutrients from the raw veggies gave me a ton of energy, and the combination of the different flavors and textures totally satisfied my taste buds. Plus, it's 100% cleanse-friendly so you won't feel gross or bloated afterward!Read More
While I am in a place where I could live without bread, every once in a while a sandwich sounds really good to me.
Last weekend I ran a half marathon and that night I was totally craving a sandwich.
Specifically, a salmon avocado sandwich. What can I say? I was craving salt, carbs, and fat!Read More
If you're looking for a crunchy, salty snack, this is the recipe for you! Healthier than chips, easy to make, and 100% cleanse-friendly.
I saw a bag of these at the store but the ingredients list included canola oil and sugar. Eh, no thanks. I was inspired to make a healthier version for you so here it is!Read More
This 2-ingredient recipe is from my popcorn-lovin' boyfriend!
Up until a few months ago, he was eating microwave popcorn that was filled with "artificial flavors" and "natural flavors" and who knows what else.
After having done my cleanse a couple of times and experiencing for himself how much better he feels when he eats higher quality foods, he has been upgrading his diet so that it's as close to real food as possible...even when it comes to snacks like this.Read More
Do you love bananas? Do you love healthy desserts? Do you love easy recipes? Do you love portable snacks?
If you answered Heck YES! to any or all of these, keep reading. You'll love these Oatmeal Banana Bars!Read More
When I find something I like, I will keep eating it until I get sick of it. For instance, I've been making my Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Soup every single week for about the last 3 months. It's so ridiculously good! Some days I'd drink it like soup and other days, I'd mix it with veggies as if it were a sauce.
Last week, I decided to branch out and see what would happen if I used the same recipe but swapped out the sweet potato with a regular potato and replace the butternut squash with a head of cauliflower.Read More
