Panda Express Orange Sauce

Pin It!

Last night, our kitchen magically morphed into healthy Panda Express: I remember the exact day Panda Express showed up at our local shopping mall. I was in 7th grade—the age where girls ditch their parents, get glammed up in more makeup than kabuki performers, and hang out at the mall every single weekend, feeling incredibly cool […]

Chocolate “Protein” Milkshake

Pin It!

It’s the chocolate protein shake that tastes like a chocolate milkshake… And because there’s actually no protein powder in the recipe, you don’t get that chalky aftertaste present in most chocolate protein shakes. You just feel like you’re drinking a chocolate milkshake. Yes, a chocolate milkshake. Hopefully I didn’t worry you with my last post. […]

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Pin It!

I need to tell you something… and it’s pretty shocking. You might want to sit down for this. There’s more to life than chocolate. I didn’t believe it either, until I tried this rich and creamy no-bake peanut butter pie. It’ll only take one bite to convince you: There is life outside Planet Chocolate. For my […]

My Birthday

Pin It!

Birthday highlights: Breakfast was an old favorite: Homemade Banana Yogurt. With extra banana, sliced strawberries, cacao nibs, and a homemade granola recipe (going in the cookbook). Not pictured: A side of Ezekiel toast spread with Nutzo nut butter. Not exactly the fanciest of birthday breakfasts, but it was delicious nonetheless. During the day I went […]

Frozen S’mores on a Stick

Pin It!

This is how we make s’mores in Texas, where it’s much too hot for campfires:                                   No, not really. Really, I made these frozen s’mores pops for a friend’s Labor Day party, for all the kids in attendance. Someone […]

Vegan Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt?

Unhappy feet. As a runner, I think I’m in good shape. But every time I go to NYC I’m reminded there’s a whole new meaning to the idea of being in shape! (Fuschia dress courtesy of Gap… on sale! Orange bag courtesy of Organic Avenue. Who needs a $150 Coach bag when you can use […]

Healthy Graham Cracker Pie Crust

Pin It!

Sometimes a recipe is so simple it makes you wonder why you hadn’t thought of it before… This healthy pie crust is one of those recipes. I started with two basic ingredients, fully intending to add more. However, when I mixed those first ingredients together, I was surprised to find it really didn’t need anything else to become […]

Green Lemonade

Pin It!

The healthiest drink in the world? Lemonade stands will never be the same. I don’t think I ever sold lemonade as a kid. I ran a cookie stand and a hot chocolate stand, and my friend and I once sold flowers we picked from her mom’s garden. (Not a good idea; nobody bought flowers, and […]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls

Pin It!

You know you want one.                     Or two. Or four hundred and fifty four. Maybe not four hundred and fifty four. Then you’d get a stomachache, and that’s no fun. 😕 On the other hand, the stomachache might be worth it. For chocolate and peanut butter? […]

Healthier Wendy’s Vanilla Frosty

Pin It!

This recipe tastes similar to a Wendy’s vanilla Frosty. It’s like one of those thick vanilla milkshakes you’d find at a fast-food restaurant… but without all the empty calories and sugar to make you feel sluggish. The recipe actually came about by accident: I was working on a Tiramisu ice cream, and when I stopped […]
