Winter Superfoods, Sweet Potato Muffins, & a giveaway!

Oh beloved summer, it's been so long since I've seen you!

Summer usually takes all the glory when it comes to healthy eating, fresh veggies, and feeling our best, right? Winter gets equated to "comfort foods," gaining weight, bulky warm clothes (all the better to hide those extra pounds), and less activity. But even in the midst of winter, you can feel super.  ...

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins: dairy-free & delish

It's time to give in, folks:  to the craving of all things pumpkin! And not just pumpkin "flavored" things like the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte that doesn't contain any actual pumpkin, but the real deal, 100% pumpkin puree. This time of year I put it in everything: pancakes, muffins, chili, cranberry relish, and yes of course... pie. I decided this year I needed to up the pumpkin ante ...

Yay Water + {Brownie Batter Zucchini Muffins}

I already declared my love for Silk almondmilk in this post, but now I have even one more reason to love it! I recently learned that switching to Silk once a week (instead of regular cow milk) will save over 26,000 gallons of water in a year!! Say what?!?!? I had no idea. Here's the deal. It's easier and takes less water to produce a gallon of almondmilk than to feed/nurture the cow and associated pasture and barn ... Read more » about Yay Water + {Brownie Batter Zucchini Muffins}

Silk Almondmilk + {Vegan Banana Nut Muffins}

You may (or may not) have noticed that a LOT of my recipes use almondmilk. When Babycakes was born I made the conscious decision that after a year of breast-feeding, her primary "milk" would be almondmilk, not cows' milk. I also never gave her rice cereal, but that's a whole different story!

Feeling Lovely + {Chocolate Covered Strawberries Bread}

I think I'm going to get a little deep today.  The truth is, I don't feel particularly lovely lately...which makes it hard to accept love and kindness and compliments from others. In one ear, a big smirk, then out the other.  I've been all shapes and sizes along the way, and yet I struggle at all of them to truly love myself and my body. In those moments of struggle, I try to focus on the positive and think of 3 or 4 things I truly love about myself at that moment. Here goes: ...
