Summer Favorites + {Summer Chopped Cherry Salad}

I have quite a few favorite summer memories as a kid growing up in Georgia -- like catching fireflies near dusk, fishing on the lake by our house, throwing the frisbee in the middle of the 9th fairway, spending full days at the pool, and drinking lots and lots of koolaid, but none of them revolve around sweet summer cherries. I didn't have a "real" cherry (ie. not the maraschino kind that are soaked in sugar and dye and then plopped into drinks and ice cream sundaes) until I was 30! My parents just never bought them. So I didn't eat them. ... Read more » about Summer Favorites + {Summer Chopped Cherry Salad}

Sangria w/a Twist: {Blueberry Citrus Bourbon Sangria}

Generally sangria is made with wine (red or white), vodka, and fruit. You can add a few things here and there to make it unique, but that is the general make-up. Well, I don't like following the "rules." So, last time I used sparkling white wine to make Strawberry Watermelon Sparkling Sangria. And this time, I subbed out the vodka and subbed in honey bourbon. Oh my gosh, yes!!!!! This is such a refreshing, yet stout and sophisticated, summer drink. ... Read more » about Sangria w/a Twist: {Blueberry Citrus Bourbon Sangria}

{Protein Fudgesicles w/Dark Chocolate Coconut Granola}

Ever since I started posting more vegan recipes, like this one and this one and this one... and since I started going to the gym regularly and working out with a trainer, everyone and their mom is asking me about protein. It's kind of a taboo topic! So I thought I'd list out some of my favorite protein-packed foods with their actual protein content per serving. ...

Beach Vacation + {Fudgy Mocha Mint Brownies}

We just got back from our beach vacation. After we swept the last bit of sand out of the truck (yes, we were crazy and drove remind me never to do that again!!!!). rewashed all the clothes that we had just washed the day before (because for some reason they just smelled stale), and put all the newly purchased beach toys into the sand box, we had a few moments to reminisce. Babycakes absolutely fell in love with the beach! ... Read more » about Beach Vacation + {Fudgy Mocha Mint Brownies}

Silk Almond Blends + {Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa}

Silk recently came out with a new Almondmilk with Protein + Fiber that I talked about in this post.

It has all the same good-for-you ... Read more » about Silk Almond Blends + {Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa}

Healthy 4th of July Dessert: Patriotic Popsicles

They aren't exactly striped as I had originally intended, to mimic the American flag. But, they're still red, white, and blue... so that counts, right?! What I love most about this healthy 4th of July dessert is that it's filled with good-for-you ingredients like almond milk and frozen organic fruit... things you want your kids eating anyway! No weird preservatives. No pesticides. No carrageenan. No corn syrup. But in popsicle form, it still seems like such a special hot-day treat. And they couldn't be easier to make! ...

Almondmilk w/Protein + {Super Greens Mac & Cheese}

I've touted in this post and in this post all of the many reasons why I love Silk almondmilk. But there is one (perceived) potential downside to drinking the stuff: The protein content is significantly lower than cow's milk. But don't fret, my friends! Silk has come out with a new product to deal with just that: Silk Almondmilk Protein + Fiber in both original and vanilla!! One of the things I like about it (besides the higher protein content ...
