Healthier Samoa Cookies

It’s about that time of year for Girl Scout Cookies. I love Girl Scout Cookies and my all time favorite flavor is samoa. I love the coconut/caramel/chocolate flavor combo and the cookie layer adds the perfect amount of crunch. Clearly, I love samoas. However, instead of buying girl scout cookies this year, I decided to make my own version of healthier samoa cookies.

Meal Prep Healthy Breakfast and Snacks

It’s Sunday, are you meal prepping today?

There are different types of meal prepping. Some people make a few large meals and portion them out into containers to eat for lunch and dinner throughout the week. Others prepare and chop veggies and other foods to make it easy to throw meals together throughout the week. Some people just get their grocery shopping done for the week, or even just for the next few days. There is no right or wrong way to meal prep! The best kind of meal prep is the type that works for you. And if meal prepping isn’t your thing, that’s okay too. I personally like to meal prep healthy breakfast and snacks.

Chickpea Crunch Bars

Just because Halloween is over, doesn’t mean I’ve stopped making healthier Halloween treats. These Chickpea Crunch bars are my new jam. They are super easy to make and the taste reminds me so much of classic ‘Crunch’ candy bars. You only need 5 ingredients to make this recipe and the ingredients I used are gluten free and dairy free. I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips, which are gluten free and dairy free, but you can use any chocolate that you like. My favorite “healthier” chocolate brands are Enjoy Life, Hu Kitchen, and Lilys Chocolate. Lilys chocolate is sweetened with stevia so it doesn’t taste as sweet. I wanted this recipe to taste sweet so I used Enjoy Life because it is sweetened with cane sugar. Hu Kitchen makes really great paleo chocolate. Check my Discounts Tab for 15% off Hu Kitchen chocolate.

Sweet Potato Nachos

I just got a mandolin slicer and love it. It slices vegetables super thin, which is ideal for making chips. Lately, I’ve been making beet chips and sweet potato chips in my air fryer and they come out so good every time! I love making Sweet Potato Nachos and my new mandolin slicer was the perfect excuse to make them. This recipe is a great healthy alternative to nachos. These nachos make the perfect Football Sunday snack or party snack.

Easy Ways to Add More Fruits and Veggies To Your Breakfast

It’s no secret that fruits and veggies are good for you! They are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that are so beneficial and necessary for our bodies to properly function. Consuming the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables, in conjunction with a healthy diet, can help reduce risk for chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. According to the 2015- 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, adults should eat 2 cups of fruit per day and 2 1/2 cups of vegetables per day (Dietary Guidelines for Americans). However, according to a study done by the CDC in 2017, only 1 in 10 Americans is meeting their fruit and vegetable needs (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). So how can we increase our fruit and vegetables intake? Let’s start with breakfast. See below for three easy (and delicious!) ways to add more fruits and veggies to your breakfast.
