Pumpkin Pie prOats

Fall is [kinda] here! My favorite season ever. The smells, the weather, the beauty. Everything about Fall is just perfect. I got home from my workout this morning and had leftover pumpkin from a recent recipe (coming soon) and couldn’t help but make pumpkin pie oatmeal. I never get sick of it! I added 2 egg whites for added protein, PLUS it makes the oatmeal super fluffy. You’re going to want to whip this up STAT.  

Protein Smoothie Bowl

I’m sure you’ve seen these all over social media. Smoothie bowls are a foodie trend right now, but for good reason. They are delicious and you can hide lots of veggies in them without the bitter taste! Freeze some fresh fruit overnight, throw in a blender, blitz, and serve. Super easy, delicious, and chock full of vitamin, minerals, complex carbs, healthy fats, and protein. A macro counters dream. You can add whatever you would like, but this is the recipe I whipped up the other day.   Smoothie: Frozen raspberries, 1/2 cup Frozen banana, 1/2 Handful of spinach Handful of

Low Carb [Paleo] Pancakes

When I was modeling in Chicago, of course I was all about the low-carb options. “Yes, I’ll have egg whites and tomatoes, please!” So boring. Eating such boring food all of the time is what sparked me to create recipes that are healthy, [sometimes] low-carb, and still delicious! I present to you… low-carb pancakes. Hold the applause. Made with coconut flour and egg whites, these pancakes are so fluffy I’m gonna die.

It’s Monday again?! What the? Well, don’t fret. New week, new goals – LETS DO THIS. And I have the perfect breakfast treat for you to start your week off with… What is the best part of apple pie? THE APPLES. Cinnamon, sweet, tangy, and goupy… that last word may not sound the most appetizing, but it’s true! The apples are goupy. And I love it! The best part about this dish is that it tastes like apple pie, but a way healthier version. So healthy that I made it for breakfast this morning 🙂 I love anything tangy and

Greek Frittata

Breakfast is my favorite meal because there are so many possibilities. Oatmeal, eggs, toast, savory, sweet, and let’s not forget about the coffee. I love mediterranean inspired dishes, so this egg dish was a real winner. Perfect for meal prep, too! It lasted us about 4 days and I even had a slice for lunch one day. Packed with protein, iron, and veggies – this dish is the perfect jumpstart that your body craves every morning. Paired with some fresh fruit and flaky croissants. Absolutely divine!  Wolfed this down pretty quickly. Enjoyed around the dining room table with my whole family. Doesn’t

Cinnamon Baked Pears with Walnuts

Anything with cinnamon just screams ‘cozy’ to me. Let alone if it’s warm and baked! Baked pears will always be a favorite breakfast of mine. It is more like a treat, actually! Perfectly sweet with a little bit of spice and crunch. Wrap up in a comfy blanket, pour yourself a hot cup of coffee, and dive into this delicious dish. Honey is normally called for a recipe like this, but I didn’t want the extra sweetness! Instead, I drizzled fresh almond milk on top for some extra moisture and it was perfect. A couple awesome facts about pears is
