I Quit Sugar + Grain Free Coco-Nutty Granola

Sugar is a hot topic in the nutrition world today — and for good reason. Many prevalent health concerns (think Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, liver cirrhosis and dementia) have all been linked to diets loaded with sugar, most of it coming from the added sugars in processed foods and sweetened beverages.

There are news articles, books and blog posts being published…

Decoding Egg Labels + a the happy egg co. giveaway

I just realized that this is my third egg post in just a few weeks. Oops! I hope y’all like eggs as much as I do.

Anyhow, after a recent trip to the grocery store where I spent way too long scanning all the labels trying to decide which type of eggs I should buy, I decided it was time to do a little research to figure out what all the different labels mean. I figured many of you might want to…

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

So… I recently discovered that you can make chocolate from coconut oil and now I want to cover everything in coconut oil chocolate and eat it everyday. Given how healthy virgin coconut oil is, I think that it’s an 100% acceptable idea.

I know I’m late to the party. I’ve seen others post about using coconut oil to make chocolate for a while now but I wasn’t so sure about it. Would it really taste…

Healthy Banana Oat Power Bars

Healthy Banana Oat Power Bars

Have you ever made a “healthy” bread/bar/muffin recipe and after one bite said, “hmmm… this is good but it’d be much better with some almond butter.” Yeah… I’m pretty sure we’ve all done it. Am I right?

Nut butters do make everything better, but I’m going to start this by saying that this is not one of those recipes. These bars are delicious — no peanut/sunflower/almond butter necessary.

Plantain and Black Bean Salad

A good friend of mine and rockstar blogger, Leanne, just got married! I’m beyond excited for her and so honored to be guest posting over on Healthful Pursuit while she’s away enjoying her honeymoon.

When Leanne emailed me about guest posting she mentioned that the recipe needed to be gluten-free, dairy-free and peanut-free. I started brainstorming and ultimately got inspired from a meal at Kuba…

I can’t believe it’s April already!!?! I think I say this each time a new month arrives, but seriously, April snuck up on me. Although I have to say I am excited for spring and the holidays that come along with it.
Passover will be starting in just a couple weeks and then it will be Easter! Growing up I loved dying…

Woo-hoo for blue skies this morning! After such a soggy weekend (and running the Monument Ave. 10K in the rain), I need a little sunshine and warmth in my life. It’s supposed to be in the 60’s this afternoon and I can’t wait.

Healthy Orange Chicken with Green Beans

Healthy Orange Chicken with Green Beans

We’re going to do something a little different today — a chicken recipe. Yup, real chicken!

You may or may not remember me mentioning that I was going to start eating meat again. If not, here’s the story. After 5+ years of being a pescatarian (vegetarian diet with seafood) I started craving meat. I think it’s important for us to listen to our bodies AND eat what we want (instead of trying to…
