Chia Pudding

Creamy, dreamy chia pudding! This quick and easy chia pudding recipe is an absolutely fantastic source of fiber, protein, iron, and calcium. It also happens to be completely delicious!! Many years ago, after visiting an amusement park, I got it into my head that I needed my mother to buy me an invisible dog. If […]

Healthy Tiramisu Recipe

I’ve been holding on to this healthy tiramisu recipe for over a year now, and I’m excited to finally get to share it. It is rich, creamy, and incredibly light– all for under 100 calories! If you try the recipe, I hope you will love it as much as I do. Eight years ago, I […]

Hummingbird Cupcakes

Healthy hummingbird cupcakes. I’ve never been so in love with a cupcake recipe, healthy or not. These cupcakes are moist, sweet, and absolutely irresistible with healthy cream cheese frosting. Perhaps being in love with a cupcake sounds crazy… but just try one and I promise you will completely understand!! Hummingbird cake, which made its culinary […]

Healthy Samoas Girl Scout Cookies

My computer has decided to come down with the flu. And by flu, I mean some obnoxious error message that won’t let me go past the home screen to access my blog posts and pictures. Completely frustrating, and sad for me… But not at all sad for you, because it means you get to see […]

13 Heart Healthy St. Patrick’s Day Dessert Recipes

Above, my homemade Mint Chocolate Fudge Pie Recipe I have *sort of* been to Ireland.

Above, homemade No Bake Chocolate Nanaimo Bars Just as I’ve […]

Lemon Cookie Dough Bites

Hearty Vegetable Miso Soup Recipe

Of all the places I’ve been, Japan is most definitely among my favorites. I was lucky enough to spend five years of my childhood in the country, meaning its culture has greatly impacted the way I learn, communicate, and view the world even to this day. Modern yet traditional, fast-paced yet serene, Japan is a […]

Frosted Mint Chocolate Double Layer Cake

Would you ever guess this decadent double layer cake is healthy? That it’s not completely over-the-top loaded with oil, sugar, calories, and fat? Or that each slice has over 5 grams of fiber, 15% of the RDA for iron, and contains healthy MCFAs? Or that the luxurious frosting can be completely sugar-free? And most importantly… Yes, […]

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

Some people love cold weather. Unfortunately, I am not one of these people. Every winter when I walk outside and the bitter cold slams into my face, I silently vow to relocate to a warm and tropical location… as soon as is humanly possible. Somehow I ended up in Washington, D.C. Not really sure what […]

Single Serving Cinnamon Roll

Today’s guest post comes from a new friend I met just last week on Instagram. Immediately, I fell in love with not only the beautiful photography on her blog, but also with her catchy—and often humorous—writing style (see below). Oh, and the fact that she has a recipe for single-serving cinnamon rolls… How can you […]
