Anti-Inflammatory Blueberry Turmeric Smoothie Recipe

Anti-Inflammatory Blueberry Turmeric Smoothie Recipe

Did you overindulge during the holidays? Me too. Two weeks later, I still feel bloated, heavy, and just blah. It seems as though it’s taking longer than usual to feel back to “normal”. It’s kind of like I have a really big holiday hangover. Please…

Matcha Coconut Fat Bombs (Vegan, Gluten Free)

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m late to the matcha party (really late when you consider that the Japanese have been consuming matcha for thousands of years). Despite the many green smoothie concoctions I consume on a weekly basis, matcha has always been intimidating…

The Truth About Superfoods

The Truth About Superfoods

I’ve been known to go on a scavenger hunt of health food stores in search of a certain superfood. The other day I spent $15 buying Herbamare (an herb-infused salt – yes, salt) on Amazon, when I could have bought it at Whole Foods for $7. The only difference?…

Roasted Beet Hummus – Vegan, Gluten Free

Confession: I’ve been known to eat hummus with a spoon. By itself. Typically, after a confession, a person will state that they aren’t proud of their behavior and vow to change. I’m NOT doing that. I’ll never apologize for my love of hummus. Especially, when it’s…

Coconut Mocha Protein Balls
