Low Sugar Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

I started making this smoothie this past winter after reading Kelly Levequeโ€™s book Body Love. In this book, Kelly promotes eating according to the Fab 4 Method (protein, fat, fiber, and greens) in order to help turn off your hunger hormones and keep you feeling satiated for longer. Additionally, the book talks about a diet that is lower in sugar and carbs. I was inspired by this book to make a low sugar smoothie bowl that is full of protein and healthy fats in order to feel satisfied for long after consumption.

Like I said in my last post, this is not turning into a keto or low carb blog. I believe different ways of eating work for different people. I want to share a variety of different recipes that support several different ways of eating. All of my recipes, however, have one common thing- they are all made with real food. Iโ€™m a real food enthusiast, meaning I believe in eating food in its most natural and unprocessed form. In my mind, eating real good is #1 and any other diet that you follow comes second.

Cauliflower Rice Paella

Low carb version of your favorite paella dish! This classic paella recipe is made using riced cauliflower instead of rice and itโ€™s soo good. You can even get that โ€œsticking to the panโ€ effect of normal paella, you just have to let the cauliflower rice cook a little longer.ย 

I have a smaller paella pan so the ingredients are proportional to my pan size, if you have a bigger pan, the portion size may very.

Pineapple Coconut Overnight Oats

Meet my latest breakfast obsession – Pineapple Coconut Overnight Oats! I was inspired by my Pina Colada smoothie bowl to make this overnight oats combo and it is SO. GOOD. The pineapple and coconut combination tastes so refreshing and delicious! It is the perfect overnight oats combo for the summer. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free and is so simple to make!

On Sundays, I usually like meal prepping my overnight oats for breakfast for the week. It is literally so simple and then I have breakfast already made for me for the entire week! I make them all at once and then let them sit overnight in the fridge and then on Monday all I have to do is reach into the fridge and grab a jar for breakfast. It couldn’t be easier! I like to re-purpose glass nut butter jars and use them for my overnight oats. Re-purposing nut butter jars for overnight oats supports nontoxic living by reducing waste and use of plastics. Plastics do interact with our foods!

I love making overnight oats because it is a satisfying and delicious meal and also oats are not very expensive. I do try to buy gluten-free oats because even though oatmeal by itself does not contain gluten, oats are commonly processed in facilities where there could be cross contamination with gluten-containing products. If you have a gluten sensitivity, better to be safe and buy gluten-free oats.

Cheesy Kale Chips

Yet another reason why I love my air fryer –ย it also functions as a dehydrator! I used to love making kale chips in the oven but it legit took forever and wouldnโ€™t always cook even. Dehydrating my kale chips in the air fryer took them to the NEXT LEVEL. It only took about 1 1/2 hours and they were the perfect level of crunchy.

These kale chips have a delicious, cheesey flavor and make the perfect snack. The best part is they are also gluten free and vegan. That’s right, they have a cheesey flavor but are still dairy free! How is that? See ingredient details below!

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 youโ€™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 youโ€™re not sure what to do with. Iโ€™ll show the recipe that I used to make them, but the veggies can vary. See recipe below!
