Healthy Blended Mochaccino

Happy Fourth of July weekend, everyone (And Happy Canada Day)! Most of us are likely busy planning our respective barbecues and get togethers. Most of my family will be out of town. So, it’ll probably just be my sister’s family and mine. More deliciousness for us! Hahaha 🙂 The weather has been incredible here this …

White Bean Kale Salad with Creamy Balsamic Dressing

Salads and summertime seem to go hand in hand. And for good reason. There’s something about hot weather that makes raw, crisp vegetables just taste better. This is especially true when you’re fortunate enough to get them from a local farmer’s market or, better yet, straight out of your own garden! The flavors are SO …

Green Sunshine Smoothie

Now that we’re nearing the first official day of summer, I’m beginning to crave more cold beverages through a straw. One of my favorite summer drinks is a smoothie. They’re so versatile, and such a great vehicle for cramming more greens into your day, too. This Green Sunshine Smoothie is a great kickoff to your day! …

Banana Walnut Muffins

So, when I eat a banana, I like them to be perfectly ripe. When they’re a flawless, bright yellow, peel nicely and haven’t cultivated any brown speckles yet. I love them on cereal, in oatmeal, or with a spoonful of nut butter and raisins. However, because I buy them a couple bunches at a time, …

Everyday Energy Bites

Life with a two year old is proving to be every bit as hectic as they say it is. My boy is busy busy! If he’s not climbing onto countertops, he’s running full speed with something messy. Or torturing the dogs. Or tearing up the pages of his favorite books. But he certainly has his …

Healthy, delicious homemade pizza. Zero to dinnertime in less than 45 minutes. Seriously. This Sweet Potato Black Bean Pizza is the kind of quick-and-easy meal that does not taste like it would be quick or easy.

Sweet Potato Tuna Burgers

If you have a tiny human, like I do, quick-and-easy, healthy meals can be a true godsend! After a full day of chasing them around, removing them from stovetops, bathroom sinks, window sills, and whatever other high, dangerous places they are able to scramble up to, it’s nice to be cut a little slack come dinnertime. …

Whole Grain Cornbread

Hey, guys! Welcome to the weekend! I’ve been keeping myself plenty busy lately with recipe testing, blogging, working out and chasing after my busy-busy 20 month old. Life is good. Today’s recipe would be the perfect companion for that chili you’ll be making on Super Bowl Sunday. Cornbread! I like my cornbread warm, slightly sweet and …

FBB Protein Bars

It’s kind of a strange thing transitioning from an endurance athlete to a strength athlete. So many aspects of your routine are different. Obviously, the workouts are quite different. But, the macronutrient ratios of your meals also undergo a pretty big change. Carbs used to be the main focus of my fueling arsenal. Whereas now, protein …

Lemon Chia Pancakes

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We hear this over and over again in the media, and, as someone who is well educated in nutrition, I can validate this to be true. And what better way to start off the day than with pancakes?  These lemon chia pancakes have become a new …
