Good morning!!

I’ve really enjoyed writing these weekly recaps of what I have been eating lately. They’re a lot more exciting for me, and, hopefully, you too! With that said, here’s the next edition of My Eats Lately!

Fruit, Squash, and Nut Butter Breakfast Bowl

I’ve been combining pumpkin, butternut squash, or sweet potatoes with sliced banana, fresh berries, and a big scoop of nut butter. It’s the best breakfast””nutritious and satisfying. I love eating this before a morning workout!

Greens & Beans

I actually created this recipe for Health, so I’ll be on News & Views next week. It’s a delicious mix of green veggies (Brussels sprouts, peas, chopped spinach), beans (chickpeas), and a Dijon mustard-maple dressing. Mmm! So good.

When I visited my sister and Matthew the other day, my mom and I brought all the fixings for chicken and black bean tacos. There’s nothing better than a good taco, right?

No-Bake Almond Joy Cookies

Holy crap, these things are so good. I made a batch on Tuesday afternoon and ate them all by Wednesday night. I frickin’ love them.

Butternut Squash with Green Apple and Bacon

Another delicious, nutritious, and satisfying meal idea! Here’s the recipe:


  • 2 cups frozen butternut squash
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, diced
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • cinnamon to taste


  1. Heat coconut oil, butternut squash, apple, cinnamon, and honey in a pan on the stovetop. Cook until butternut squash is no longer frozen and apple is lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, cook bacon (I nuked it in the microwave) and then break it into pieces.
  3. Put butternut squash mixture in a bowl and top with bacon.

Blue Diamond Rosemary & Black Pepper Almonds

I found these at Target the other day and just had to have them. They’re perfect when a salty craving strikes!



Lots of them! It’s too hot to cook! Here are some of my favorites:

No-Bake, Sweet & Nutty Cookies

I’m all about the no-bake cookie recipes lately. Here’s another delicious one!

Smoked Maple Ham

This is the best deli meat I’ve ever eaten. It tastes like it was just cut from a honey-baked ham at Christmas dinner. I randomly snack on pieces throughout the day or throw it in a wrap. Delicious.

Mini Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Oh, yes. I made mini cheesecakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread from The Laughing Cow, and, holy goodness, they are amazing. They don’t require any baking and come in individual-size servings, which is perfect for a little summer treat. The recipe will be on The Laughing Cow blog next week. I’ll be sure to let you guys know!
