Refreshing Tomato & Cucumber Salad

Refreshing Tomato & Cucumber Salad

Dearest summer veggie lovers,  As our summer season quickly draws to a close, I thought to myself, “What better way to celebrate than to create a lil’ salad to share with two of my favorite in-season foods?” (and also use the *what seems like* 5,000 […]

Peanut Butter + Oat No-Bake Energy Bites

Dearest Balls of Energy,  You see what I did there? I’m addressing this post to not only YOU (you lil’ ball of energy), but also the little balls of energy of which this post is about…so meta, don’t ya think? Anywho, it’s Wednesday (aka RECIPE […]

Peaches N’ Cream Overnight Oats

Dearest Peachy Peeps,  It’s no secret that the morning is usually one of the busiest times in our day (…you want me to do HOW much before 8 a.m. and show up as a fully-functioning human being?!). Yeah, I get it….we’ve all been there.  However, do you […]

Summer Toasts for Two

Summer Toasts for Two

Dearest Toast Fanatics,  Apologies I couldn’t come up with an alliteration with which to address you, but synonyms for “lovers” or “fans” that begin with “T” are harder to come by than originally anticipated. Anywho, I’m back with another simple, tried and true nutrient-dense recipe […]

Lemon Rosemary Ricotta Hummus

Lemon Rosemary Ricotta Hummus

Dearest Dippin’ Darlings, I have many long-standing inside jokes with myself (a skill one must learn to cultivate growing up as an only child). One of my favorites, however, involves carrots, cucumbers, pita bread, and pretzels. What do all of these foods have in common? Thanks […]

Sweet Potato & Banana Smoothie

Sweet Potato & Banana Smoothie

Dearest Smoothie Spooners,  Or “smoothie slurpers,” whichever side you take. Normally, I like to slurp my smoothies through one of my fancy, reusable metal straws (thx Amazon!)–but this smoothie required me to take a step outside of my normal smoothie routine…for two reasons:  The beautiful, […]
