No matter how many times I think I’ve come up with all the protein ball recipes possible, inspiration hits! I just love protein balls because they are so easy to toss together with whatever extra ingredients you have on hand. I especially love that I don’t have to be super precise in measuring because, hey, sometimes eyeballing it makes cooking so much more fun! As you guys might remember, I’m a fan of seed cycling and…

Guys, this Smooth as Honey White Bean Spread is absolutely delicious – the texture is so incredible and is just bursting with flavor. Mixing white beans, almond butter, honey, and cinnamon together might sound a little strange to you, but I promise it’s a winning combination! It reminds me of my favorite flavored nut butter, but with additional nutrients from the beans. The honey sweetens up the spread, so you don’t taste the beans at…

Hi, friends! Just popping in real quick with a new recipe that I whipped up yesterday. I was away for the weekend, so I did the majority of my meal prep yesterday, including making a batch of these breakfast cookies. Recently, you might have noticed that I’m really digging rice cakes with peanut butter, banana, and sometimes ground flax for breakfast. It’s simple, delicious, satisfying, and mostly nutritious. I say “mostly” because rice cakes don’t have…

Made with whole grain bread, vanilla Greek yogurt, low-fat milk, honey, vanilla protein powder, and cinnamon, this breakfast is just as satisfying as it is delicious. I use Sundays to meal prep lots of veggies and meats, but also breakfast. It’s so easy to mix up a few batches and store in the refrigerator. Just grab and go for a fuss-free morning! Honey, Stay-in-Bread Pudding Serves 1 Ingredients: 1 large slice whole grain bread 1/4…

Good morning! I receive lots of questions about how I make my sweet potato toast, so I’m sharing a quick video tutorial. It’s such a simple, nutritious, and delicious breakfast and snack. I personally love it topped with sliced avocado with a few shakes of the amazing Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel Seasoning. It’s also so so good with your favorite nut butter and a sprinkle of hempseeds and cinnamon. I hope you try it and love…

Good morning and happy 2018, friends! I have some New Year content coming at ya this week, but I wanted to share a video about one of the most common questions I get from CNC followers: How I make my morning iced coffee! [adthrive-in-post-video-player video-id=”YKWAtMIb” upload-date=”2018-01-24T17:32:52.000Z” name=”How I Make My Morning Iced Coffee” description=”How I Make My Morning Iced Coffee” player-type=”default” override-embed=”default”] Here’s how I brew my iced coffee – Mal and I have been making…

You know I love a good cookie, but around this time of year, there’s no shortage of treats to be had, right? This cookie is perfect because it’s the best of both worlds. The maple syrup and peanut butter make it sweet enough to feel like a treat, but it’s also gluten-free and dairy-free. And — it even has protein! I added collagen to up the protein count a bit. Collagen has been really buzzy lately,…

When I first started eating well, it felt like the only advice I got was what to remove. While taking the crap out of my diet was good advice in many ways, sometimes I found it difficult and a little depressing to give up the foods I loved. Top of the list: hash browns. Golden, crispy, greasy hash browns. And you guys know how much I love hash browns! So, how does one maintain a healthy,…

Just because I’m not eating eggs right now, doesn’t mean you can’t! FYI: I’m still experimenting with the eggs and acne stuff. Before I make any conclusions, I want to get through another cycle or two to see what happens with my skin. I’ll be sure to keep you guys in the loop! Besides Kraft Mac & Cheese and Ramen Noodles, one of the first things I ever learned to cook was Egg-in-a-Nest. Rewind to 12-years…

Happy Sunday, friends! If you have some brown bananas laying around, I have just the recipe for you! As you might remember, no food goes to waste in our house, so when we had two very sad bananas, dying a slow death, in our fruit bowl, I knew exactly how to save their lives: banana bread! Mal and Quinn both lovvvveee banana bread, but not the “healthy” kind that I usually bake with almond flour,…

This post is sponsored by Organic Stevia In The Raw® and SheKnows Media. I can’t believe my sweet baby is growing into a little boy so quickly. I’m so glad that I’ve documented so many of our adventures together on CNC to see how he’s changed (so much) over the weeks and months. This “day in the life” recap is from a random Friday a couple of weeks ago, and Qman and I had quite…

This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own.  Now that summer is here, our family is enjoying a much more low-key lifestyle, but during the school year, weekday mornings start bright and early at 5:00 AM when Mal’s alarm clock goes off. Here’s a snapshot into one of his final days of school! Mal heads downstairs for breakfast while I get a jump start on my work for the…
