    Smoothie bowls, where you been?

    Oh I know, it has been so cold here in New Jersey so instead of freezing my buns off in the morning, I have been turning to oatmeal, muffins, granola and yogurt, etc. in the morning for my breakfast.

    But last week the craving hit and there was no cold stopping my smoothie bowl craving. Seriously though, it was unreal. It was basically snowing outside and next thing you know ya girl is craving all the smoothie bowls in the world. I received Better Body Food’s Organic LIVfit Superfood Organic Superfood Blend just in time to make this bowl.

    What better smoothie is there than Peanut Butter & Jelly though? I eat PB&J for lunch a few days a week still (I am 5 years old at heart) and this smoothie bowl is my latest favorite way eat the best combo ever.

    I can always turn to a smoothie bowl to hit the spot. I love that this recipe has fruit, veggies and even some extra superfoods in it thanks to LIVfit Organic Superfood Blend from my friends at Better Body Foods. It has a neutral flavor and it is packed with extra nutrients from whole fruit and veggies. One of my favorite ways to add extra vitamins and goods to my smoothie bowls and you don’t even taste it. It has a little bit of protein in it too (about 6 grams per serving).

    Better Body Foods sells pretty much anything you need in your kitchen for baking and more. They have liquid coconut oil, MCT oil, coconut flour, cacao powder and more. Seriously though, just check out their site. It is a healthy food lover’s dream! Continue Reading

    Double Layer Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Bars (vegan)

    A world that combines brownies, cookies and peanut butter into one dreamy dessert, is the place I want to be.

    These Double Layer Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Bars are a game changing dessert you guys. They are vegan, gluten-free and taste so rich and fudge-y and perfect.

    Word on the street is that today is National Peanut Butter Day (happy holidays), but we all know every day is a day to celebrate peanut butter. I’m so excited to share these Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Bars with you and I hope that you are drooling over them as much as I am. I am actually eating one right now as I write this blog post with some coconut yogurt on top.

    Let’s dive into this recipe though. Since it is a double layer dessert, there are two different recipes going on in one place. The peanut butter cookie layer (the bottom layer) is made with creamy peanut butter, sweetened with coconut sugar and even has some extra peanut butter powder in it to add even more PB flavor. I use PBfit peanut butter powder  from Better Body Foods. PBfit is a powdered form of peanuts. It’s a lighter way to add even more peanut butter flavor to things like smoothies, baked goods, anything!

    The peanut butter brownie layer has PBfit chocolate peanut butter powder in it to add that chocolate and peanut buttery flavor. You will notice both layers are made with many Better Body Foods products. I use their coconut sugar, liquid coconut oil, coconut flour, cacao powder and two types of PBfit all in this one recipe! They are such an epic brand to keep in the pantry to help make healthy recipes tasty. They make all non-GMO products ranging from ancient grains to LIVfit superfoods (different powders!). I will be sharing a few recipes this year featuring their products and I am so excited. They are such an epic brand, you guys will love. Continue Reading

    So I am not really a huge “Fall” gal.

    I know, shocker. Basic white girl over here isn’t obsessed with Fall. I am 100% a summer girl (thank you raynaud’s). Everything about summer just gets me. I love the warm weather, the feel of things are just easier and of course I get to wear white nail polish every week..That is until my finger nails turn yellow from baking and cooking 24/7.

    Now don’t get me wrong, Fall has it’s perks. Like the REALLY early stages of Fall. Basically I love September and then when it gets “crisp” in the air I’m like buh bye, time to hibernate until May.

    Eating 100 juicy apples (team honey crisp), going to Central Park to see the leaves change and eating bagels for Yom Kippur are pretty much my favorite Fall activities. I don’t get all tingly inside about a PSL since I don’t drink coffee and I’m not a huge Halloween fan. Plus isn’t it Halloween everyday? Or am I the only one who eats Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups daily?

    ..Don’t answer that Continue Reading

    Vegan Dark Chocolate Superfood Cups packed with essential superfoods

    Paleo & Vegan Dark Chocolate Superfood Cups packed with a few essential superfoodsVegan Dark Chocolate Superfood Cups packed with essential superfoods

    You know that food that you just can’t live without? The one you need to eat every single day, rain or shine, sick or not. Well friends, for me that is dark chocolate. I can confidently say that I eat dark chocolate every single day. I eat it before dinner because I can’t keep it in my pants. And I eat it after dinner because I need something sweet after something savory (the struggle is real).

    Because of this addiction (yes, we are calling it an addiction), I am always looking for more ways to eat chocolate and fuel my body with extra nutrients.

    Insert Bite-Size Dark Chocolate Superfood Cups. These gems are vegan, paleo and they are packed with superfoods that to our bodies gooooooood. Sometimes I get really annoyed at the whole “superfood” trend but then there are days like today when I buy into it. When I eat or drink something that I know has extra nutrients in it, I just feel like I am doing my body good. Like I bought it a nice present or something.

    Working out in the morning is one of my favorite parts of my day. I usually work out around 9:30am (the luxury of working for myself). This allows me to take my time in the morning and have a leisurely breakfast, work a little then head out the door to a class. I also even go to the grocery store to pick up any necessities for recipes that day first before heading to work out. Can you tell I like to accomplish a lot in the morning yet?

    My work outs usually consist of a barre or spin class. Those have been my two favorite forms of workouts for the past few months. Spin is usually how Jord and I exercise together, and barre is my go-to for solo time or with friends. Continue Reading

    Raw Carrot Cake Bars & Cashew Cream Frosting

    As you babes found out in my Paleo Carrot Cake Pancakes recipe, I am not exactly a huge fan of carrots.

    The only way I eat them is when they are hidden in sweet things (like cake and pancakes) so I can barely taste them. I pick them out of salads, hate when they are in my vegetable sushi rolls and no matter how much hummus I smear on top, I just can’t eat them!

    Carrot Cake is one of my personal favorite desserts plus Jord loves it too. The chunks of walnuts and coconut seriously hits the spot every time. Continue Reading
