Banana Pancakes

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that my favorite meal of the day is breakfast.  And I can definitely load up on the bad stuff: pancakes, waffles, cinnamon rolls, french toast, etc.  Those by far are my guilty pleasures.  But it’s so much freaking sugar and for someone who is trying to be more conscious of how I’m eating, it can be hard to resist. But that’s why you love me right?  I never tell you that you can’t have those indulgences and cravings.  If you want it, then have it, just be wiser about […]


6 Components You Need For Making The Most Delicious & Filling Salad

Ok, so this may seem like a really easy thing to do, but in the past, I’ve made salads that leave me hungry like an hour later.  Not cool!  Also, for some reason I like salads that I can get out at restaurants way more than when I make it at home.  Why is that?  Or is that just me?

Are You Getting Enough Fiber + Lentil Sweet Potato Spinach Stew Recipe

I challenge you to figure out how much fiber you intake on a regular day.  Most of us probably only get 8-10 g. a day.  The kicker is, that you’re missing out on almost 20 more grams that you should be getting on a regular basis.  The recommended daily amount of fiber that is 30-50g.   I want you to look at your own health and see if you have any of these issue: High LDL (bad) cholesterol, raised blood sugar, excess body weight. If you’re not getting enough fiber, should you freak out.  No, you can turn things around, […]


Build Your Own Smoothie

  I absolutely hate looking up smoothie recipes when the ingredients are a page long.  If I have to get too many measuring cups out and ingredients, I’m out…  Don’t let recipes like that turn you off to the green smoothie.  It’s my secret weapon for weight-loss, quick meals, less dishes, and I have it every day for breakfast.  The awesome thing is, that it won’t get old because there’s a variety of flavors you can do.  It has really helped with my sweet tooth.  I think the main reason is that it satisfies my sweet’s craving.  I think of […]
