Just like everyone I know, I've been nuts for Nutella most of my life. I mean is there anyone who doesn't love the magical combination of chocolate and hazelnuts? I highly doubt it! But did you know that two tablespoons of Nutella has as much sugar as FIVE OREO COOKIES? That's right! Just one serving contains 21 grams or over [...]

Snickers bar, how I love thee!!! The soft nougat layer, the rich peanut butter caramel center, crunchy peanuts on top, and best of all the chocolate coating that holds them all together. There are so many drool-worthy combos out there, but honestly I don't think anyone beats chocolate and peanut butter. It's a match made in [...]

I have this combo whenever a sweet craving kicks in and it hits the spot every single time! Needless to say, I realized it was about time to create a decadent dessert using these tasty ingredients, and that's how these "Nutella" [...]

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 [...]

Celebrating the final days of summer with some more delicious fruity popsicles! This time I used up fresh local organic peaches from the farmer's market to make some dairy-free peaches and cream popsicles. I had some kiwis as well, so decided to pair them with matcha for an extra pop of color. To get that creamy consistency while going [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
