Gingerbread Oatmeal w/ Warm Cranberry Orange Sauce (V,GF)

By | 2017-12-19T23:33:45+00:00 December 19th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch|

Even though I'm a big smoothie lover, during winter time, I prefer to have a big warming bowl of oatmeal with stewed fruits and crunchy toppings. For the past month or so, I've been all about gingerbread! With the holidays coming up gingerbread just makes sense, doesn't it? Some of my recent obsessions have been this gingerbread molasses [...]

Say hello to my current favorite smoothie flavor -> gingerbread :) As we move into December, we keep seeing gingerbread treats all around! From gingerbread lattes at Starbucks to gingerbread cookies on Instagram, it's everywhere! It's that special time of the year where spices like cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg come together to create wonderfully nostalgic flavors [...]

Chocolate Gingerbread Granola

Making your own granola is one of the easiest things you can do in the kitchen! Not only is it quick and simple, but it's also much healthier and more cost-effective. Most store-bought brands have questionable oils and lots of refined sugar added and the healthier ones are often quite expensive. That's why I prefer to [...]

Chocolate Detox Smoothie Bowl (V,GF)

If I had to pick one breakfast to have for the rest of my life, it would certainly be a healthy chocolate smoothie! A luscious creamy bowl of chocolatey goodness covered with all the crunchy toppings I can get my hands on, just like this one! I mean, who can say no to chocolate?! But, as a nutritionist [...]

Mocha Nice Cream Shake (Vegan)

By | 2017-10-02T11:08:18+00:00 October 2nd, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Desserts, Drinks/Smoothies, Frozen Treats|

Inspired by my recent trip to Italy, I set out to create a healthy affogato-like treat to snack on over the weekend. Affogato, meaning "drowned"  in Italian, is a coffee-based dessert that takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato "drowned" in a shot of hot espresso. Instead of a hot shot of espresso, I made a mocha shake using an instant [...]

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Bowl (V,GF)

Are you getting your 8-10 servings of vegetables and fruits? One of my favorite ways to ensure I'm getting enough veggies is by having smoothies. Fruits, I love to eat on their own. But vegetables I prefer to get them either in smoothies or salads. My favorite go-to's beside greens are frozen cauliflower and zucchini that add [...]

Tropical Green Chia Parfait (V,GF)

By | 2017-06-30T10:33:35+00:00 June 29th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Drinks/Smoothies, Snacks|

The wait is over! It's finally summer and with hot sunny days come lots of refreshing smoothies and parfaits! I always love to add a layer of chia pudding to parfaits, since these tiny miraculous seeds are one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids and complete protein. I couldn’t resist adding some greens, so I [...]

Ombre Green Buckwheat Smoothie (V,GF)

Breakfast has got to be my most favorite meal of the day! Not only does a nourishing breakfast set the tone for the rest of your day, but it will also provide your body with the nutrients and energy it needs to thrive and function optimally. When it comes to nutritious breakfast options (that taste ridiculously good [...]

By | 2017-05-26T09:59:28+00:00 May 26th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Desserts, Snacks|

I have to admit as much as I love smoothies and chia pudding, sometimes I get bored and want to try something new for breakfast. Especially with my parents visiting, I wanted to make them something healthy that not only appeals to the eyes, but also to their rather particular taste buds! Since they both love yogurt and [...]

This thick and creamy chocolate buckwheat smoothie is one of my favorite go-to's every time I'm looking for a luscious filling breakfast. It's perfect for those days when you're on the road or away from your desk/kitchen and not able to snack in the middle of the day. It fills you up for hours thanks to the [...]
