Oh hi hello! Did you miss me? I sure missed you. Read More
Guys guys guys!! I’m no longer a smoothie bowl virgin!!
It’s CRAZY to me to think that it has taken me this long to make myself a smoothie bowl, but I get it. Smoothies aren’t really my thing.
Is that a sacrilegious thing to say as a food blogger?
Who had a fun NYE?!
Mark and I had some friends over, we played some games, ate some food (I made my Smoky Black Bean Dip ❤️❤️❤️), and brought in the new year with lots of happiness and cheer.
And wine. Always wine. ?
So naturally this morning was a “let’s rebound after the indulgent holidays” kind of morning. And I resorted to my old whole food standby: smoothies.
Liquid nutrients, fiber, vitamins, and protein whirled together to create a dreamy, creamy nutritional powerhouse? I’ll take it. I’ll take it every dang day.
I figured a little smoothie roundup could be helpful to everyone this time of year, so I took it upon myself to scour the interwebs in search for the yummiest, healthiest, vegan-est smoothies around! Yum yum yummm! Drink ’em for breakfast, slurp them as a snack, or savor them as dessert, these healthy vegan smoothie recipes are sure to make your new year a little bit sweeter. ?
Ahh, Saturday morning.
Saturday morning is easily my favorite time of the week.
Waking up sans alarm clock, laying in bed until you decide to get up, lazily making a morning cup of tea…Saturday mornings are perfect.
My favorite part? Breakfast.
Not only am I totally convinced that breakfast food as a whole is completely unparalleled in the culinary world, but being able to take my time, sit down, and enjoy the start to my day with my incredible boyfriend?
I’m forever thankful for Saturday mornings.Read More
Allow me tell you a story.
One day, Pittsburgh was experiencing some uncharacteristically hot weather. Alexa, out of the goodness of her own heart, decided to make and shoot a smoothie recipe so that her best friend, Mark, could drink it and get all energized and such.
[Alexa’s quite the sweetheart]
I’m really not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day.
I just never really saw the point for this holiday. If you truly love the one you’re with, don’t you think that every day should be treated like Valentine’s Day? Do you really need a special day designated for niceness and thoughtful gifts? A single date per year that you decide to bring home flowers for a loved one or choose to have a romantic night out?
Great. Now I’m sounding like my mother.Read More
I’ll admit it. I’m a hipster foodie.
Um, first and foremost, #kalefordays. I throughly enjoy, and actually prefer, anything served in a mason jar. I feel refreshed and rejuvenated after my green smoothie in the mornings. I would take a bath in Sriracha and gladly drink my way out. We have already discussed my devotion to the humble chia seed. I could have Cruciferous Vegetable Night (a la Sheldon Cooper) every night of my life in the way of brussels sprouts. I frequently sprinkle hemp seeds and flax seeds on my fruit. Almond milk is my spirit milk.
We’re going to knock a few of those out right here, right now.
Grab your thick-rimmed glasses. It’s about to get hipster up in here.Read More
