Metabolism Boost: Coconut Oil and Peanut Butter Chips

March 12, 2014

If you know me, you know I love coconut oil frosting for breakfast. I haven’t been extremely consistent with it during pregnancy, but in normal life it is a staple in my diet (with coffee!). I love the smooth combo and the energy boost it gives me, all while making me feel full and satisfied [...]

Bulletproof Coffee (with a weight loss and muscle building boost!)

February 18, 2014

Have you tried bulletproof coffee yet?! If not, you should. You really really should. It’s amazing. My husband and I usually start talking about it at night when we go to bed—about how we can’t wait to have coffee in the morning. I’m currently drinking decaf since I’m pregnant, so I can really attest to [...]

Strawberry Macadamia Neopolitans

January 16, 2014

  These start out a bit like double peanut butter cups…  but, there’s no peanut butter, and there’s an extra layer on top. I wasn’t sure how they’d turn out, but I’ve had the idea in my head for a while. I was happily surprised, especially at how to the top layer remained softer than [...]

Guilt Free Cookie Dough “Fudge” (healthy enough to eat for breakfast!)

October 19, 2013

I’ve been trying to figure out ways to add more coconut oil to my diet. Since I’m pregnant, I’m a bit hyper-focused on nutrients and food. I’m not being obsessive about it, but I’m paying close attention and really trying to incorporate certain key foods. I’ll address that directly soon with a list, but right [...]

Almond Maple Macaroons

February 11, 2013

I made these when I was staying at my Mom’s house and they’re amazing… I made them again recently, but for some reason did not take pics. I’ll just include the original pic, even though they are in ball-shape instead of macaroon-shape. They work either way! Almond Maple Macaroons Mix: 1 cup coconut 3/4 cup [...]

Chocolate Avocado Pudding (with a bonus superfood ingredient!)

December 9, 2012

I made chocolate avocado pudding this weekend (again). I’ve always loved this stuff, and it’s quite a fun game to spring it on people who (a) don’t like avocados or (b) don’t know what the ingredients are. I’ve never had anyone guess that the main ingredient is avocado, and the only people who don’t like [...]

Frosting for Breakfast: What Can a Therapeutic Dose of Coconut Oil Do for You?

November 12, 2012

I have two recipes to share…and unfortunately I had a hard time getting “good” pictures! Maybe it’s just because they aren’t pretty foods…or I just don’t have the right lighting at the time I’m photographing them. Whatever the case may be, please do not pass these by based on looks! (and I’ll try to get [...]

Grain Free Crispy Pizza Bites

October 16, 2012

Last night, I really wanted to eat pizza, so I figured I’d concoct some kind of crust with coconut flour. But when I started mixing, I decided to just mix all the pizza ingredients (except the sauce) together and see what happened. It turned out great! I love it when that happens! Here’s what I [...]

Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups – So Healthy You Can Eat Them for Breakfast!

March 22, 2012

It’s almost Easter, and truthfully, I don’t crave or want regular old Easter candy at all. In fact, you couldn’t pay me to eat it—because I have so many things I can make myself that taste better (to me) and don’t have all the junk and sugar in them! Besides, I’m kind of craving cheese [...]

How to: Clean Your Pores (without paying for a facial)

January 24, 2012

I’ve spent many years focusing on how to have nice skin. Let’s just say that it doesn’t come naturally to me, and it’s one of the main reasons I did an elimination diet. The thing is…even when my skin is good, I want to try and make it awesome. I’ve learned that my skin’s appearance depends [...]
