The nights have been dipping into the 40s more often than not lately, and I’ve found myself contemplating turning on the heat (I’m holding out until November 1st) and bundling up while walking Murphy first thing in the morning. The shift to colder weather does mean sweater weather, right?! 🙂 The chilly mornings and evenings have got me craving ALLTHINGSFALL, especially pumpkin- and pumpkin pie spice-flavored foods! I’ve already made a few batches of pumpkin…

October is here and you know what that means… pumpkin everything (#basic, anyone?)! We’re big fans of protein balls in our house – they’re easy to make, super transportable, and can be either a quick bite when you want something sweet or a healthy and yummy snack while you’re on the go! With the onset of pumpkin season, I knew I had to put Fall’s favorite flavor to work and make these 3-Ingredient Pumpkin Spice…

Hi, friends! This photo below is definitely the definition of #momlife. Here I am sitting on the couch, trying to relax after a long day when Quinn climbs onto my lap and sticks his head in my shirt. It was a flow-y, criss-cross tank top, so I totally understand its fun potential, but, hey, personal space! 🙂 I didn’t even bat an eyelash, nor did I even realize what was happening until he had already made himself…

If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you’ve probably seen that I’ve been on quite the cottage cheese kick lately. I love eating it along side a plate of veggie crudités for dipping. It’s such a quick and easy – not to mention nutritious and delicious – snack to quickly throw together. Whatever your mood – morning, noon or night – cottage cheese is an awesome (and protein-packed!) addition to your day, which is why…

Hey, hey! You all know how much I love a good cookie, right? Even when I’m paying attention to my diet, I have to find ways to incorporate some sweet treats throughout the week. Ok, well, it’s pretty much a daily occurance because what’s life without a cookie? I’d rather not know! Since I’ve been seed cycling and eating lots of sunflower seeds in the second half of my cycle, I’m constantly brainstorming new ways…

I can’t stop making these protein balls! They’re so darn delicious and SO EASY to make. They seriously come together in, like, 5 minutes! These protein balls were inspired by my love of chocolate and hitting my macros goals for the day. I’m definitely not a stickler for “the numbers,” but these babies clock in as a well-balanced, macro-friendly treat and, bonus, they’re so easy to make – just whip up a batch when the…

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…

These quick and easy blender chocolate chip cookies are made with only 7 ingredients. This simple recipe is gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free… and delicious!  It’s no secret that I enjoy a good cookie (or two) on occasion. But ever since I (mostly) cut eggs from my diet, I try to be mindful of recipes that include them. I’ve enjoyed the positive changes and improvements with regard to my skin since eliminating them, and it’s been fun playing…

Ever since I came back from my amazing trip to Israel, I’ve dreamed of all things tahini. Tahini is a staple ingredient in Israeli cuisine and it’s had my wheels turning as to how I can incorporate it into more of my recipes. (Keep a look out for more ideas in the coming weeks!) For years, I only thought of tahini as being an ingredient you added to hummus. While that is it’s most common use…

Hi, guys! You might have seen these Peanut Butter Frosted Rice Cakes on Instagram or Facebook already, but I wanted to share the recipe here too because it’s definitely a good one. I also love that you can make a batch at the beginning of the week to enjoy as a quick grab-and-go treat. #mealprep I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! 🙂 Ingredients: 4 rice cakes 1/2 cup powdered peanut butter…

You guys know how much I love a good cookie, especially when it’s a mostly healthy cookie! These Almond Butter Collagen Cookies combine the best of both worlds when it comes to macronutrients and taste. Made with creamy almond butter (protein + fat), collagen (protein), ground flax (protein, carbs, fat), and brown sugar (carbs), they are a balanced mix of deliciousness. And, bonus, they’re super easy to make and free from gluten, dairy, and eggs,…

Good morning and happy Tuesday! After the long weekend, I’m playing a bit of catch up this morning, especially since I’m off to Austin in just a few hours. I’m heading there along with another DTFN coach (Kerrie is staying behind because the new KFIT is mid-demo) for a conference, which is part of our mentorship with Dan Martell. It’s a quick trip. I’m flying out this afternoon and coming home on a red-eye Friday…

Last week, I grabbed lunch at Whole Foods. We were on the verge of “hangry,” so a couple of treats ended up in our shopping basket, including a box of Better Bites, a “top 8 allergen-free” treat from a bakery located in Austin, Texas. This post is not sponsored in anyway; Kerrie had just heard they were good, so, of course, we needed to see what they were all about. I mean, taste-testing new healthy products is all…

These are a few of my favorite things about the holiday season: Eggnog, cookies, and family. And I was able to combine them in quite the delicious event! Ok, so this time of year can get pretty hectic, and we’re all doing our best to hang ALL the decorations, buy ALL the presents, remember who’s holiday party is coming up next, and, of course, make time for the people we love most. (Wow, it’s been…
