I’m a BIG fan of greek yogurt. On it’s own, it’s pretty boring but throw in some berries, a sprinkling of granola and even toss in some mini chocolate chips because #yolo and hey! It tastes pretty damn delicious!!! I’ll eat yogurt for breakfast or save it up for dessert. Whenever I have it, it never ceases to disappoint in satisfying my wicked sweet tooth. But I know not all of you enjoy yogurt quite as much as me. But I bet you like ice cream, or maybe even almond bark?! If so then I have a tasty creation for you that falls somewhere between the two. Frozen yogurt bark!
Calling all avocado ♥︎ers! And even the haters too. Yes, I understand if you harbor some resentment towards avocados. I too share a love-hate relationship for this high maintenance piece of fruit, and not just because it made me feel ever so slightly dumb by masquerading itself as a vegetable. Yes, I admit it, for the longest time I thought it was a vegetable. The shame! But worse than the agony of goldilocks finding the perfectly heated bowl of porridge or the bed that’s just on the right side of softness – seriously she’s too young to be concerned about mattress density and toppers – picking out avocados that are the acceptable level of ripeness really does take some skill.
You’re gonna love this super simple chocolate almond butter protein shake recipe! ? Confession, I am a nut butter fiend! I have about 5 different jars of nut butters all going at the same time; coconut butter, cashew butter, peanut butter, almond butter…you get the picture. I’m obsessed! Luckily I have Betsy’s Best to feed my passion. Aside from it’s deliciously creamy texture and taste, the other thing I love about nut butters is how satisfied I feel after a spoonful. All I need is a healthy dollop of fat in my breakfast smoothie and I am good to go all morning long!

A balanced diet is a taco in each hand, wouldn’t you agree?! ? To say I’m partial to the odd taco would be like saying Yogi Bear kinda likes picnic baskets, or Homer Simpson occasionally eats donuts. You get the picture! I like to think of tacos as a healthy hybrid between a plate of nachos and a salad. With just a few ingredients, you have a simple yet super tasty flavor combination that makes these dressed-up Mexican sandwiches not only delicious, but cheap and very easy to make yourself.

Here’s my copycat version of Jenn Segal’s tried, tested and perfected double chocolate biscotti! If you’re not sure whether you’re a biscotti fan or not, start with these bad boys! They remind me of the double chocolate espresso biscotti from Whole Foods that I developed a mild addiction to upon discovering them a year ago.
