Fall Sausage Bowl

Fall Sausage Bowl

My husband and I have had this dish probably five times this month already. It is THAT good. And easy!! Honestly, it doesn’t take much time at all. We are lovingly calling it “Fallsome Sausage” in an homage to our old favorite pasta dish, “Awesome Pasta”. We usually add a serving of brown rice to my husband’s bowl for extra carbohydrates, but I keep my simple following the recipe below. Happy Fall!

Chia Pudding

Chia Pudding

This healthy sweet treat checks all of the boxes for me. Honestly, I just love coconut milk and would eat it straight out of the can with a spoon. ( I sometimes do when I make chia pudding! :P) I also love the gummy texture of the chia seeds after they’ve set in the liquid overnight. It’s kind of like bubble tea! I wish this treat came together faster, but the good news is that you can make a lot of it and keep it in the fridge to eat all week!

Eggs with Sweet Potato Hash

Eggs with Sweet Potato Hash

Bored with your breakfast routine? Switch things up with these over easy eggs & sweet potato hash! Okay, it’s not really a hash, but I couldn’t think of a simpler way to say “eggs and Brussels sprouts and sweet potato in a bowl”.

This recipe is inspired by the recipes in the book Beyond the Pill. This book is where I first learned of all of the amazing health benefits of Brussels sprouts (and other Cruciferous vegetables). But, it also fits in super perfectly as a pre-workout or post-workout meal with 80 Day Obsession, the timed workout & nutrition plan that I use to tone up and lean out.

Now, this might sound like a weird combo to you, especially if you’re not used to eating veggies with your brekkie, but hear me out - the combo of tangy apple cider vinegar on the sweet potato and sautéed shredded Brussels sprouts with an ooey, gooey, runny yolk is AMAZING. Trust me. I used to be the kid who never let her food touch. Look at me now… :P

Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

I freaking LOVE cookie dough and, I’m not gonna lie, I have definitely gotten store-bought cookie dough with the SOLE intention of eating it raw. But, as I’ve learned more about nutrition and become more aware of the scary ingredients in processed foods, I’ve learned to steer clear of the pre-made stuff. But fear not - with four simple ingredients, you can make this sweet treat to keep in your fridge and/or freezer for a healthier option when a sugar craving hits!

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins

These blueberry muffins have been the perfect mid-morning pick-me-up this week, exactly when I’m craving a sweet treat. This recipe is based on FIXATE’s Blueberry Maple Muffins, but I tweaked it a little to make it gluten-free and also lower the intensity of the buttermilk. I upped the amount of maple a little, but to be honest, I can’t really taste it. But that’s ok. I’m just happy to be using a natural sweetener! Blueberry season is just around the corner in NY, so save this recipe for yourself to make (and freeze!) batches of yummy muffins come August!
