Pineapple Overnight Oats

Pineapple Overnight Oats 🍍🍍 This is my favorite warm weather oatmeal combo! Sounds kind of weird, but it seriously tastes so good! Made with overnight oats (served cool) topped with fresh cut pineapple, flax seeds, chia seed, and coconut nectar. I also topped with some goji berries as well.

Green Banana Pineapple Smoothie

This is by far my favorite summer smoothie! It was actually the first smoothie combo that I have ever made. It’s a fun green color and tastes super refreshing. The green color comes both from spinach and wheatgrass. I love wheatgrass! It is the first superfood that I ever tried. It has a grassy taste that isn’t too strong so its an easy add to any smoothie. Wheatgrass is high in nutrients and antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation. However, wheatgrass is the leaves of the wheat plant and can contain gluten depending on how it is harvested. It may be best to avoid wheatgrass if you are gluten-free.

Note: This recipe is labeled as vegan, but is topped with bee pollen (optional). If you are trying to follow a vegan diet, you may want to skip the bee pollen topping.

Banana Cinnamon Oatmeal

Starting off this snowy Friday with my go-to banana cinnamon oatmeal bowl for breakfast.

Sounds weird but smells and tastes soo good! 🍌✨

Banana Cacao Smoothie Bowl

Kicking off Friday with a banana cacao smoothie bowl! Just to get one thing straight- cacao is not the same as cocoa. While cacao and cocoa both come from the same place, the way they are processed impacts their nutritional content. Cacao products are generally less processed and a healthier alternative to cocoa. Cacao powder has a rich chocolaty taste but is full of minerals and can have antioxidant effects. It does taste bitter by itself so I like to balance it out with a frozen banana in my smoothies. And might I add, this smoothie bowl legit tastes like a chocolate milkshake 😋🍌🍫

Berry Beet Smoothie Bowl

Egg Muffins

Eating low sugar is BIG right now. When I was originally testing out this way of eating, I had no problem putting together low sugar meals, but really struggled to find low sugar snacks. Snack foods for me primarily looked like fruit and nut butter (which although contains natural sugar, still contains sugar) or some sort of healthy bar, which unfortunately typically contain added sugars.

If you’re experiencing similar struggles, you might like my egg muffin snack idea! They are super easy to make and full of proteins and healthy fats so that they actually keep you full. They are also great if you have some extra veggies in the fridge that you’re not sure what to do with. I’ll show the recipe that I used to make them, but the veggies can vary. See recipe below!
