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

Morning Elixir

Mornings are my favorite time of the day. They bring a sense of new beginnings and freshness. And they are also extremely productive. I swear I can get more done in 5 minutes in the morning than in the afternoon.

Blueberry Banana Mug Cake (Made w/Coconut Flour!)

Hump daaAAyyy! Whoa, I can’t believe it is already Wednesday. Let alone almost October! What?! I could’ve sworn it was August yesterday. Life has been busy, that’s for sure. Sam and I feel like the energizer bunny! Excuse me while I go make another pot of coffee. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal, not to mention the most important.

Green Tea Breakfast Muffins

Sam and I are constantly on-the-go over here and more often than not, we don’t have time for breakfast. I love killing two birds with one stone, which is why I came up with a breakfast muffin that will 1) keep us full and 2) give us energy! I give to you… the green tea breakfast muffin!

Strawberry Chia Jam

This morning my husband searched the entire fridge for strawberry jam, but sadly someone ate it all. It’s not my fault I love toast with strawberry jam – hehe 😉 As I was jotting down a reminder to pick some more up, I realized that it had been forever since I made my own jam. That’s right. Ch-ch-ch-chia! This stuff is so easy to whip up, and it is free of refined sugars and preservatives. Cha-ching!Strawberries are very high in vitamin C, believe it or not. One serving of strawberries has 51.5 mg of vitamin C – half of your daily

Banana Coffee Smoothie

Goooooodmorning! Just a little hyper over here from my insanely good smoothie I made for breakfast. The other day I was thinking – what IF I took what I frequently have for breakfast (banana, yogurt, coffee) and just blended it up to make a mind-blowing smoothie? Brilliance, I tell you. Just wait until you try this.   Perfect way to kickstart your morning or get ready for a workout. This smoothie is loaded with healthy complex carbs, lots of protein, and a caffeine buzz because let’s be honest, no one can function without their beloved cup’o joe. The perfect blend

Coconut & Almond Flour Banana Bread

When my man asks for banana bread, he GETS banana bread! I think banana bread is a staple in every household, so finding the perfect (and healthy!) recipe was a top priority. I am happy to announce that I have succeeded at such a task because OMGGG this is drool worthy! Tomorrow Sam starts his first day of fall semester for medical school… (silently screams). Every Sunday is a little lazy, but we made sure this particular one was extra lazy. Slept in, enjoyed our cinnamon hazelnut coffee together (killer), watched Netflix, shopped, and obviously we (I) baked! Moist, nutty, flavorful,
