Sweet Potato Nachos

I recently got a mandolin slicer and love it. It slices vegetables super thin, which is ideal for making chips.

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. It’s rich in veggies and also gluten free and vegan. These nachos make the perfect, healthy Football Sunday snack or party snack.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

If you tasted this recipe, you may be wondering if its a chocolate peanut butter smoothie or a milkshake? You will be shocked to see that this smoothie is packed with fruit and vegetables, but tastes like an indulgent treat! Even better, it can be made with just five ingredients and in less than five minutes. If that sounds good, then you’re going to love this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie!

Smoothies are a great breakfast option for busy mornings. I love making smoothies because they can be made in less than five minutes and you can take them with you on the go. Smoothies are also a great option because they can be made with frozen fruits and vegetables. Frozen produce lasts longer and tends to be less expensive than fresh produce. I personally love keeping frozen produce stocked in my freezer to toss into smoothies.

Blueberry Basil Smoothie

I went to pick up basil from the grocery store the other week and they only had a basil plant available. Because of this, I purchased the basil plant and decided to pot it. I figured it wouldn’t last long in my windowsill so I just potted the plant in an old glass jar. I have tried to grow basil plants in my windowsill multiple times and have so far been unsuccessful. Maybe because I’ve been home more and my basil plant is getting the TLC it needs, but it is thriving in my windowsill! Now, I’m going to have to think about re-potting into an actual pot… My new, thriving basil plant as well as the warmer weather inspired me to make this Blueberry Basil smoothie. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and whole 30 and only requires 4 ingredients to make!

Black Bean Brownies

I’m not gonna lie, I had seen Black Bean Brownies before and was a bit skeptical about how they’d taste. Since it’s quarantine time due to COVID-19 in NYC and I have some extra cans of black beans, I decided to give it a try. I was honestly so surprised how easy it was to put this recipe together and how much the batter tastes like brownies! Only this recipe is gluten free, vegan, contains no refined sugar, is rich in fiber, and made with real food ingredients!
