Living in Florida my beautiful winter wardrobe spends most of its time in hibernation. So I relish those rare chilly days when the temperature falls below 70℉! I dig out my
There are two things in this world that I will never say no to; 1. free stuff (seriously it’s free, why would you?!) and, 2. peanut butter ♥︎ 🙂
I could (and pretty much do) eat peanut butter with EVERYTHING. Don’t believe me? Check out my deluxe double bacon turkey burger with crunchy peanut butter & crispy plantain bun. What’s that you say? #drooling! Before I got crazy creative with my peanut butter experiences, like most normal children my first introduction to peanut butter was through traditional means.
I’ve been talking about making Chicken and Waffles for quite some time now but having never experienced this southern breakfast staple I wasn’t exactly sure what I was missing out on. Sure I’d heard great things from foodie friends, but no one had quite prepared me for the life altering, taste explosion that this succulent, sweet & salty combo would deliver.
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to meeeeee! a donut that was completely macro free! 🙂 I’ve been dying to make donuts for the longest time now so when my CrossFit box announced their potluck Christmas party, it was the perfect excuse to get my butt back in the kitchen & get creative with these festive looking Reindeer donuts. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas until I get my holiday bake on & sing along like a lunatic to my all-time favorite Christmas tunes. You know, those old classics like Wham’s “Last Christmas.”
I don’t know about you, but when I think of Fall a Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte always springs to mind! For those of you who who can’t live without a bit of pumpkin spice in your life, try out this low carb pumpkin pie smoothie. It’s great for breakfast or a snack and super filling from all the fiber that’s in pumpkin.
It’s avocado season! My second favorite time of the year – after Christmas ooobviously. And this year I’ve been lucky enough to broaden my experiences beyond Cayman’s home-grown & imports as I’ve sampled some of the finest California grown avocados from San Francisco to LA. Clearly I wasn’t going to be able to leave either location without experiencing Instagram’s most annoying food trend, the Avocado Toast.
I LOVE Thai green curry but for some reason I rarely make it at home. Most of us have heard that old proverb “variety is the spice of life” and we all know that new and exciting experiences keep life fresh and interesting. So when it comes to food in particular, why do we find ourselves routinely eating the same things day in and out? Well, it turns out that we are creatures of habit – I hope this isn’t coming as surprise to you! As much as we like the idea of variety, we tend to stick to the same things for good reason.

“Never before have we had so little time in which to do so much.” How many of you resonate with this statement?! Roosevelt recognized how frantic our lives were becoming even back in the early 40s. I wonder what he would think if he could see how fast and furious they have become now! Well I have a tip in store for you that will make your hectic working week a little easier & your breakfasts so much tastier 🙂

Apparently I’ve been neglecting my creative side as another holiday has rolled around without so much as a peep from me. Not only am I ashamed but I’m also terrified by the rate at which this year seems to be slipping away – seriously, I had a nightmare that it was November already! As much as I love the second half of the year for being that much closer to Christmas, I am not about to wish the rest of the year away, I have far too much to accomplish before then!

Today I will be experiencing my first ever real American Thanksgiving with B & his whole family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – which includes 2 parents, 4 brothers, 3 significant others, 3 nieces, 2 huge shaggy dogs and 1 puppy! So before the mayhem begins I’m taking a sneaky time out to share with you my paleo and vegan pumpkin pie recipe.
