Instant Cereal

Have you ever broken a bone? During my years as a hard-core runner, I tripped and slammed into the concrete on multiple occasions… There’s even a permanent scar on my left hip as a reminder of one such fall. Yet I never suffered a single broken bone in that time; not even so much as […]

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Fudge Bars

I love easy recipes. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the blog. There’s an entire page devoted to this type of recipe: Over 100 healthy dessert recipes that can be made in 5 minutes or less. So these chocolate strawberry bars are perfect for me: Just a few ingredients, and the […]

Coconut Greek Yogurt Pie

Coconut Greek Yogurt Pie. 5 ingredients. Nothing artificial. No baking required. Have you ever seen one of those no-bake Cool Whip pies? Today’s recipe is a healthier answer to Cool Whip pie, with yogurt standing in as the base. Try serving it at a 4th of July party to balance out the heavier dessert offerings […]

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Chocolate Covered Cherries: This chocolate covered cherries recipe is so easy I seriously considered not even posting it… However, I receive requests from readers every day who ask if I can post more easy recipes—recipes that can be made without an oven, without a blender or food processor, recipes that don’t take all day to prepare […]

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

The Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie. I know some people swear by cold cereal for breakfast… But whenever I eat a bowl of cereal, I always seem to be hungry again less than an hour later. Does this happen to you as well? However, I do like the convenience of cold cereal. Sure, it would be […]

Copycat Juice Generation Acai Smoothie Bowls

When I visited my younger sister a few weeks ago in New York City, she insisted on taking me to a healthy fast-food place called Juice Generation for their famous acai smoothie bowls she claimed were “the best things ever!” I found this proclamation to be really funny, and if you knew my sister you would […]

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries So many funny, awkward, or crazy things have happened to me since moving. I could fill three notebooks with stories of situations in which I’ve found myself–situations with friends, situations with guys, or sometimes even with strangers… and I wish I could figure out a way to write them all here without […]

The Pink Energizer Smoothie

Last week, I did something I was never able to do while living in Texas: Pack a bag, hop on a train, and find myself in New York City less than 3 hours later. I spent the week in New York, the weekend in Philadelphia, and was back in my own apartment by Monday morning. […]

Lemon Cookie Dough Bites

Easy to make. Easy to store. Easy to eat. Lemon might be the most underrated dessert flavor of all time. I’m sorry to say I’ve neglected it on this blog, having posted only a handful of lemon recipes (my favorite of which is the Healthy Lemon Squares recipe) in over six years of blogging.  But […]

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 […]

Healthy Chocolate Lava Cake

I’m in Valentine’s Day mode. Fresh berries, red wine, an exorbitant amount of dark chocolate… Really, I guess that’s my everyday mode. But honestly what’s the point of waiting until February 14th? This quick chocolate lava cake is easy to make, secretly good for you, and deliciously rich. Top it with Healthy Chocolate Sauce to make it […]

Black Magic Peanut Butter

This recipe is CRAZY addictive. One taste and you won’t be able to think of anything else. Yet it only takes about 30 seconds to make. With no refined sugar… and it’s high in iron, calcium, and protein! I wasn’t initially planning to post the recipe, as it’s almost too easy and you don’t even […]

Mexican Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

If you’re looking for a tried-and-true holiday cookie recipe that gets rave reviews and  yields a batch large enough to take to a party… Do not make these. The raw cookie batter is so addictive that, if you’re anything like me, you’ll find it completely impossible to stop eating the cookie dough by the spoonful. […]

Caramel Yogurt Dip

Everyone wants what they can’t have. That guy who liked me for two years in high school? I took his phone calls, notes, and attention for granted, only becoming interested in him after he finally gave up and asked out another girl. Likewise, I never gave caramel a second thought until 7th grade when the […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

If you told me 10 years ago that someday I’d love to babysit, I most likely would’ve rolled my eyes and thought you were crazy. But spend enough time with kids and you really do begin to notice their childhood sense of innocence and wonder about the world wearing off on you. I spent Thursday […]
