Egg free substitutes

Egg free substitutes

We all have different reasons why we don’t always want to use eggs in our food! Luckily they can be so easily replaced. Try these ideas out if you haven’t already. It’s fun to experiment. ?

Prebiotics and Probiotics.. what’s the difference?

Prebiotics and Probiotics.. what’s the difference?

Probiotics always seem to be a topic of interest among health-conscious individuals. Most of us have at least heard of probiotics, and maybe we have even tried a few products containing them when we have gotten some type of cold or other sickness (because that’s what your neighbor […]

A super easy super food snack

A super easy super food snack

Although apples generally appear in your supermarket all year long, they still have their peak seasons in which you should take advantage of! This happens to be August to early start of Spring. Even though I healthy, I am trying to improve my diet by choosing foods more seasonally, among other things. When it comes to apples, my favorite opportunity to eat one is as a snack, and right now they are so fresh and delicious.

But–and I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks this–sometimes eating an apple can get boring! Sure it’s great to grab an apple on the go, but if you have even five extra minutes, this recipe helps up the fun and delicious factor of apples. It’s also a great snack to try on your little kiddies, or if you’re an aunt (or uncle) who wants to win the heart of their little niece or nephews (like I do!), while throwing in some super foods to up the nutritional value of a plain apple.

Super Apples

  • Difficulty: super easy
  • Print
Measurements depend on how many servings you want. One apple is one serving! The base of the recipe is simple: apples sliced up and spread with peanut butter or PB2. The additional toppings can be whatever you like, but I recommend using super foods.

  • 1 organic apple, any kind: sliced relatively thin
  • Small amount of peanut butter or PB2: spread onto each apple slice
  • Optional fruit toppings: chopped strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, banana, kiwi
  • Optional superfoods: hemp seeds, bee pollen, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, goji berries, chia seeds

I used chopped strawberries, hemp seeds, and cacao nibs, and I used a mixture of Earth Balance peanut spread with PB2. Many people agree the taste of cacao nibs can be quite bitter when eaten on their own, but when they are used on top of acaí bowls or like on these apple slices, they taste awesome! Don’t they look delicious? 😀

Plus an article about the nutrition confusion among all of us. It’s personally one of the most frustrating things to deal with, when everyone around me acts as a nutritional expert because they know how to type in the search bar on google. There really is a skill […]

Here is a link to follow my recommended plant-based recipes on Pinterest. A lot of them are gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, and of course, healthy. *My Pinterest Recipes* Taylor’s cousin and his wife are in town so last night we had them over for drinks, and then we went out to dinner. We never do much during the week (especially drink), so this Wednesday morning feels very off. It was worth it though! This photo is the best one of the night–my attempt at a timer cam app that’s on my phone. It’s not easy balancing a phone and running over to get in the photo! tuesday

A sunday of cooking

A sunday of cooking

It felt like I was in the kitchen all day Sunday, experimenting with muffins, acai bowls, and kale salad. I am first going to point out that, I am not a baker. I can cook pretty well, but baking is something I have not had much […]
