Me and my sweet tooth LOVE this time of year! Its all too easy to let things get out of control with all the delicious desserts everyone brings to the table. That’s why when I get invited to a holiday party, I always make sure to bring a sweet and at least one side dish with me so I know exactly what’s in a couple of the things I’ll end up eating.
This recipe is inspired by the Drake family who have been dominating their macros for over 300 days now! Check out Justin Drake’s transformation on the blog and stay tuned for Ashley’s interview coming soon!
If you’re following us on our Instagram, y’all know that my breakfasts have been somewhat epic of late! In the last 7 days I’ve had donuts on four occasions, pancakes twice and a sausage and egg breakfast bagel once. I can confirm that life is peachy in the foodie city of Atlanta! 🙂 Key lime pie is waiting for me just over the border, but in the meantime I’ll be devouring pancakes and other southern delights! ?
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.
