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…

Hello, friends! I have quite the delicious recipe for you! Listen to this: No-Bake. DOUBLE chocolate. Oatmeal cookies. Made with vanilla cake batter coconut butter. Holy yum, right? They are. So yum. So, so, so yum. Obviously, these babies are quite delectable, but perhaps the best part about them is how quickly and easily you can whip them up. (It took me maybe 5 minutes.) Honestly, the hardest part was waiting for them to chill…

Happy Monday, friends! I thought it would be fun to kick off the week with a delicious giveaway. I mean, chocolate on Monday morning sounds like a great way to start the day to me! That said, here’s your chance to win an amazing chocolate-themed gift basket from the Gold Emblem line at CVS/pharmacy. Here’s what is inside: Gold Emblem Select Gourmet European Dark Chocolate Truffles – European Dark Chocolate Truffles filled with Lava Cake…

Hey, hey! Here’s another edition of What I’m Loving Lately! Tool Time: The best new kitchen gadgets <— some really cool stuff I haven’t seen before and, of course, now want to add to my kitchen! Loaded Soft and Chewy M&M Cookie Pie – Um, whoa. This cookie pie looks incredible. Someone please make one for me. Ok? Thanks. What I Instagrammed Versus What Was Really Happening, Or My Entire Life Is A Lie <—…

Hello, hello! Here are yesterday’s meals and snacks with some family adventures from the day mixed in! BREAKFAST OMG Pancakes – I added almond butter to mine! Breakfast also included a glass of iced coffee with chocolate almond milk, which gave me a potentially awesome idea: chocolate almond milk ice cubes! I’m going to try them in my iced coffee tomorrow morning. I will report back! These two are so adorable, and they’re already best…

Ooooooh, boy! I have quite the delicious recipe for you! Are you ready for this?! Introducing Almond Joy Chia Pudding! Oh, yes. This recipe combines three of my favorite flavors””chocolate, coconut, and almond””into a cool, creamy, and satisfying dessert that is actually somewhat healthy for you, thanks to those little chia seed orbs, which are packed with omega-3’s, protein, and fiber. This pudding has a wonderfully sweet and coconut-y flavor that reminds me of melted…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! Breakfast Yesterday morning started with an especially delicious breakfast. I love it when meals come out so much better than expected! I had two waffles with melt-y almond butter spread in between and warm, sweet cinnamon apples on top. So yum! To make the apples, I just chopped up a couple, placed them in a microwave-safe bowl, drizzled honey and sprinkled cinnamon on top, and then nuked them for 90…

Happy (belated) Easter!!! Yesterday afternoon, I enjoyed Easter brunch at my grandmother’s house surrounded by family and, oh, so much delicious food. Family + food = the best. When Mal and I arrived at my grandmother’s house, we hung out and caught up with family for awhile. It was especially great to see my sister, who is now 6.5 months pregnant and definitely showing, and my cousin, Heidi, who turned 30 the other day. It…

Yesterday afternoon, Mal and I enjoyed a delicious and very indulgent meal at Max Brenner in Boston. We left with full bellies, big smiles, and agreeing that we must visit again. Awhile back, I was invited to attend a media event at Max Brenner to try their new menu, but, unfortunately, I was unable to attend. The PR folks kindly offered me a chance to try the same sampling menu (available at the media event)…

Mal and I had a nice little Friday night. It started with a CrossFit workout and ended with us lounging on the couch watching a movie, drinking wine, and eating chocolate. It definitely wasn’t a bad way to spend a Friday night! Workout Yesterday’s WOD wasn’t super challenging, so it was a nice break from the past several workouts. Strength: Handstand Push-ups 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 WOD: In 12 minutes Row 2000 meters In the remaining time AMRAP…

I can’t believe Mal and I are flying to the West coast again! We were just there less than two weeks ago, but, this time, our visit is for something fun: skiing (me)/snowboarding (him)! Neither of us have ever skied/snowboarded on the West coast, so we are PSYCHED. We’ve heard it’s totally different than the East coast. Somehow, I managed to fit all of my ski gear (including my helmet) and clothes for five days in a…

…and the terrible titles continue!! 😉 But, my post title explains things pretty well. I enjoyed two really great snacks this afternoon. 😆 My first snack of the afternoon was a homemade granola bar. Followed by a yummy surprise! On my doorstep this afternoon, I found a fun, little package. Inside was a special something from Stonyfield. I’m not going to lie, I loved the adorable packaging right away. Check out the cute cupcake-like containers! 😀…

Oh my gosh, this Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf came out so well! I’m so pleased! 😀 It’s super moist and chocolately, almost like chocolate cake, but with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. It would make the perfect dessert after Thanksgiving dinner, especially with a warm cup of coffee or tea. Ingredients: 1.25 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 cup sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking…
