One thing that I have really enjoyed this past summer is making breakfast parfaits.
I do not know what it is, but they are just light on the system and they kinda trip the body into thinking that it’s getting a sugary treat so you don’t crave sugar all day (YAY!)
This parfait is sweet, HEALTHY, and satisfying!

What’s the problem with how traditional caramel corn is made? The primary ingredients are usually corn syrup and refined white sugar (not at all beneficial to our health or mood).

3 Tbsp. coconut oil/butter
1/3 cup honey and/or maple syrup Read More »

This is one of the best desserts I’ve ever made and its incredibly easy and impossible to mess up and of course, gluten free.
I have been trying things out of Alicia Silverstone’s book, The Kind Diet: A simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet. All of the recipes are vegan, but they also use awesome alternatives to using refined sugar all while still enjoying delicious treats. Read More »
For Christmas this year I received a Pizzelles maker. I was beyond excited because I have wanted one of these for years. Pizzelles are by far one of my favorite “cookies” in the world. I can remember being little and my Grandma Lu would always make these for the holidays. Read More »
