Who doesn't love a good cookie? I do love to create and bake at home as it allows me to be able to control the level of sweetness in my cookie consumption... which is very helpful for the low-sugar gal. Plus I can add in ingredients that will support my health and goals. This is where I shock you yet again and tell you that a cookie... can be healthy AND STILL DELICIOUS. Check out this delicious and nutritious low-sugar, high protein cookie recipe.
I am a HUGE fan of nut butter, including almond, cashew and sometimes peanut. Call me old school, but I literally lived on peanut butter sandwiches when I was a kid and never grew tired of it. Back in those days, mainstream peanut butter was the way to go but did you know that despite the health benefits of nuts, not all nut butter are good for you? Check out why plus a delicious peanut butter breakfast square recipe to enjoy!!
When some people think of smoothies, they think, “YUCK!” They think it’s a bunch of gross, bland, mushed-up veggies in a blender. Believe me, my first attempt at making my own smoothie was pretty memorable. After learning not only about which foods should be going into smoothies but also how to properly combine them for nutrients and taste, I found that I LOVE smoothies!!!! You can love smoothies, too! I have a ton of recipes, including this Cherry Pie Smoothie that’ll turn your bad impression of smoothies into a love affair like no other. Enjoy!!
If you have invited me over for an event/party, then you likely have asked me to bring my famous guacamole. And the reason why is because it's so darn delicious. This guacamole recipe has been in my family for 19 years, come this New Years Eve. The only change we have made to it was switching from peeling/seeding tomatoes to dicing plum/cherry tomatoes (so much easier). This year, my guacamole made another Xmas eve appearance and come New Years there will be an encore. If your party planning is in full swing as we prepare to ring in the new year, this dish will complement your meal and definitely impress your guests. Enjoy!!
