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 was creamy and thick and perfect for savory uses. Remember those amazing Super Greens Mac & Cheese Cups?!?! But today I'm even more excited to share another new Silk product with you: their Unsweetened Almond/Coconut Blend. It has all the same good-for-you ... Read more » about Silk Almond Blends + {Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa}

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Subway. All opinions, text, and beautiful imagery are my own.

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 ...

Simple {Strawberry Watermelon Sparkling Sangria}

I don't know if it's from turning 30 (a few years ago, lol), or having a baby, or trying to juggle being an accountant, food blogger, and mom, but one thing is for sure... I don't have a great short-term memory anymore. Whether it's talking about stopping to get the mail at the top of the driveway and forgetting by the time I'm speeding past the mailbox, or making a batch of hummingbird juice and cooling it quickly in the freezer only to forget it completely and have it turn into a solid block of ice, or having a list of 6 things ...

Gym Update + {Almond Mocha Green Smoothies}

It's been a week since I joined a gym, the first step towards my summer goal. I went every single day, which is more than I'll normally go...but I wanted to get in the habit of being there and I wanted to take a couple different classes to see what was most challenging and motivating. I have settled into a 3 - 4 days a week schedule with a couple of group classes for high intenisty interval training and once a week strength-training. After this week, literally every muscle in my body hurts! ... Read more » about Gym Update + {Almond Mocha Green Smoothies}

Buffalo Ranch Veggie Burgers + 8 Other Favorites

Ironically I posted my summer goal on Facebook the other day. Why so ironic? Because my summer goal is to exercise more and use social media less! Those of you who love my posts don't have to worry though, I'm still going to post about the same amount. BUT... I'm going to spend less minutes (hours) checking on who liked a picture or who commented in the last 90 seconds, etc... Truth be told, I'm kind of an addict. And if I add up all the time I waste glued to my phone and put like an eighth of that into ... Read more » about Buffalo Ranch Veggie Burgers + 8 Other Favorites
