Nor is it a secret how much I adore green juices and green smoothies.
So why on earth it took me until now to consider combining the two?!? I have no earthly idea. But green margaritas have now arrived in mi casa. And they are absolutely, positively, oh-so-deliciously, super-food-ly, easy-to-make-ly, irresistibly here to stay.
So grab your juicer, your blender, your food processor — or heck, save a few minutes and pick up some green juice at the store — and come join me in toasting these green machines. And get ready, because your happy hours will never be the same. :)
Allow me to introduce you to my cute “dates” for Valentine’s Day.
They’re sweet, they’re charming, they are nice and healthy, and they come bearing chocolate — a must for any Valentine’s Day, if you ask me. ;)
Yep, I made you some Almond Joy Energy Bites! I realized we were long overdue on here for a new energy bites recipe. And since chocolate seems to be on everyone’s minds this week, I thought it might be nice to have a healthier chocolate recipe that you could turn to for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time, or — yes — dessert.
As opposed to actual Almond Joy bars, these little bites are made with all natural, healthy ingredients. And they are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. And they are made with one of my favorite natural sweeteners — my Valentine’s “dates”, Medjool dates.
I’m pretty positive you are going to fall in love.
I am soooo over snow days. Kansas City was essentially shut down for about 4 days last week, and then with yet another snowfall yesterday, I think it’s safe to say our entire city is probably snow day-ed out.
This post goes out to all of you lovebirds for Valentine’s Day.
But it especiallygoes out to all of you single lovebirds — just as lovable, if you ask me — this Valentine’s Day. I made this recipe for you. :) And with nearly half of the U.S. adult population being single nowadays, there are apparently a lot of you!!
Call me crazy, but yesterday as a blizzard was rolling into Kansas City, I decided to get out of the house.
I know. I’m usually the girl who happily cozies up inside when the weather outside gets frightful. But when all of my neighbors decided to bundle up and trudge through the blizzard to get coffee together in the morning, I couldn’t resist the chance to start the day with them and watch the snow fall from the huge windows in our neighborhood coffee shop. Then one of my friends with her big SUV offered to come pick me up and go out for my favorite vegan nachos for lunch (which, if you’ve ever had these nachos, they are 100% impossible to resist). And then of course, I couldn’t resist a trip to the park for the family member who loves playing and dive-bombing and running windsprints and rolling in the snow almost more than life itself — my dog.
You know that feeling when you discover that a friend loves a random passion as much as you do?
Like when I found out that my longtime friend, Sara, not only also loves ballet but knows every word/song/routine from the (uber-cheesy) movie, Center Stage? Or when I discovered that my healthy-eating friend Maureen also allows herself to eat as much Ro*Tel dip as she wants one time a year for the SuperBowl? Or when my friend Liz also confessed to be a diehard egg drop soup fanatic?
Hey guess what? I made you a new recipe with your three favorite words in the title — slow cooker chicken.
That’s right. Without fail, requests for slow cooker recipes and chicken recipes seem to far outweigh all other topics in surveys and your emails. So today I’m doing a two-for-one and also introducing a healthier new take on a classic — Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken!
