Hazelnut Mocha Overnight Oats

I’ll tell you, since becoming a mom my eating habits haven’t been priority. I’ve certainly put my meal prep and eating regularly on the back burner (no pun intended). However, as we are all slowly becoming adjusted to this new life I’m making sure to set aside time for me too as I’m realizing just how important staying healthy is to the title “mom”. Healthy doesn’t just mean physically, like eating right and working out. Mental health is also crucial, not just as a parent, but for anyone. There’s a lot to be said about doing positive things for yourself, like taking a yoga class, reading a good book or even just something as simple as reminding yourself how good of a job your doing every now and again. Being happy is just as important as eating a salad. Continue reading

Zucchini Protein Blender Waffles

I love when new recipes just come about. Don’t you? I whipped up these amazing waffles this morning and was praising the breakfast gods for being on my side. Not only did the ingredients mesh perfectly but they literally may be my new go to waffle recipe for the summer while I’m zucchin-ifying everything in my life. Ha! These gluten-free, protein packed waffles have just the right amount of sweetness and can actually even be eaten without syrup in my opinion. Although, I did serve mine with a touch of syrup and fresh wild blueberries. It was simply heaven! This recipe is pretty versatile, too, and would taste great with fruit, nuts or chocolate chips cooked right into the batter. I suggest making an extra big bath of these so you can enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast all week long! Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Butter Zucchini Smoothie and my current pregnancy favs!

Pregnant or not activewear is my go to. Who doesn't love a comfy pair of leggings that not only hug your curves but move with you for the ultimate in comfiness? One of my favorite brands that I just can't get enough of is Climawear. This company not only has been my top choice prior to pregnancy but has also worked with me through every stage of it…it's like these pieces just get it and every bump and additional curve that pop up. Ha! Continue reading

Strawberry Coconut Oil Muffins

Anyone finding themselves with a surplus of berries lately? Not that I’m complaining or anything. I truly can’t get enough of summer and one of the very reasons is the in-season produce available…especially the berries! Aside from eating them straight from the container (washing first of course) I’m always looking for ways (or an excuse) to incorporate them into new dishes, from smoothies to salads and let us not forget the baked goods. Oh, the baked goods! Continue reading
