Lite Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Added Sugar Free Pumpkin Bread

I made my Gluten Free, Added Sugar Free Pumpkin Bread a little bit differently this week. It is a very similar recipe, but has a liter spin on it. As usual, it is made with real food ingredients And let me tell you it is GOOD! This recipe makes 1 loaf, which I typically cut into 6 slices. The best part is, it is LESS THAN 200 CALORIES PER SLICE (1 slice = 1/6 loaf). That is correct! It is less calories than those bars most people are snacking on and waayyyy more delicious. Check out this easy recipe below and please comment if you give it a try!

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!

Tart Beet Berry Smoothie

Starting off Friday morning with this tart beet berry smoothie bowl on my couch in nyc. Iโ€™m obsessed with the color of this smoothie and the tart beet berry combo is one of my favs. Super excited to go see a functional medicine doctor for a routine visit (said no one ever, right?!) I think functional medicine is so interestingย  even tho I have zero medical background (I am an engineer by degree). Iโ€™ve been waiting for this visit for months so hopefully itโ€™s worth the excitement. Happy Friday!

Dark Green Smoothie Bowl ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿซ

Back in NYC! ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

First move post red eye flight back is making a green smoothie bowl. After 3 weeks of straight travel, Iโ€™m so glad I came home to a freezer full of organic produce and my first move wasnโ€™t running out to Whole Foods. This smoothie is mostly veggie based, but made with cacao powder and topped with cacao nibs to taste like a treat. I also topped it with sunflower butter vs. almond butter. Iโ€™ve been experimenting with sunflower butter this week and am a huge fan. Now have to run and get all of my errands complete and pack over the next couple of days before I fly out, this time for vacation! โœˆ๏ธ
