A deliciously creamy, yet refreshingly light bubbly drink with coconut milk and lime

Coconut Lime Fizzy Drink

I know it sounds like a kindergarten child named this drink, but I honestly didn’t know what to call it. I know it looks and sounds kind of odd (it kind of is), but let me try to express to you in words how amazing it is, and hopefully you’ll be convinced to give itRead more

A Mexican twist on the classic avocado toast using a waffle instead of toast

Avocado Waffle

Avocado toast have been SUCH big deal lately, and I have zero complaints about it! It can be so simple (literally just some avocado smeared across a piece of toasted bread), but can be fancied up with lots of different toppings. Either way, it is scrumptious and a great way to start your day. IRead more

A simple yet extraordinarily refreshing drink made with watermelon, lime, and mint

Watermelon Mint Lime Refresher

If you think watermelon is the perfect refreshing treat on a hot summer day, wait til you try this watermelon mint lime refresher! I absolutely love watermelon. I’ll sit down and eat about half a watermelon in one sitting (it’s just water, so there are no calories, right?!). The only reason I don’t recommend doingRead more

Nectarine & Strawberry Salad w/ Ginger Lime Dressing

  I frequent Costco often – WAY too often to feed one body. I buy lots of food in bulk, and proceed to consume all of it by myself (no shame)! I usually buy enough fruit to feed a large family of 8 that hasn’t eaten for a few days. My last trip there grantedRead more

Coconut and coffee flavored yogurt, layered perfectly with bananas and chocolate chips!

Coconut Latte Yogurt Parfait

I’m just going to put it out there –  I LOVE BREAKFAST; it is amazing!!!!! If you know me at all, all this enthusiasm is not exaggerated! I love all the different breakfast options – from the simplicity of toast and eggs, oatmeal, or a smoothie to the all-out extravagance of gourmet pancakes, lox benedicts, stuffed frenchRead more

Perfectly marinated cubes of sushi served over rice and topped with an assortment of veggies

Easy Poke Bowl

  When all your coastal friends are posting pictures of their poke bowls from all the trendy restaurants/food trucks, but you’re stuck in Texas, you just gotta suck it up and make one yourself. After doing a little research, I learned that poke means “to cut” or “to slice,” and that it’s pronounced po-KAY, notRead more

Cantaloupe discs topped with yogurt and fruit

Cantaloupe donut

I don’t know who comes up with such crazy creative ideas. For example, watermelon pizza– even though it’s kind of blasphemous to call it pizza when there’s zero cheese involved, it’s so inventive, pretty, and good for you! So I decided that if watermelon pizza can be a thing, giant CANTALOUPE DONUT can also be aRead more

Avocado Smoothie Bowl

Avocado Smoothie Bowl

I eat breakfast every single day! I just don’t understand how people can leave the house without eating something. I’m pretty sure both my body and brain would just shut down, and I would stop functioning like a normal human being. Not only is breakfast an absolute necessity for me, but it is my number one choiceRead more

Eggplant ricotta roll-ups smothered in simple tomato sauce and baked with cheese!

Eggplant Ricotta Roll-Ups

So, I thought after the first post, everything would magically get 238 times easier. I was wrong. I still find myself stumbling through the whole blog thing, googling anything and everything that goes wrong, and making the same realization that I really don’t know what I’m doing about every 5 minutes. That being said, IRead more

Mango coconut popsicles

Mango Coconut Popsicles

Starting anything is always hard. Why do you think everyone needs it to be January 1st to start anything – a new diet/fitness plan, new financial way of living, new outlook on life…? It’s because it’s hard! It’s scary to start something because that means you have to commit to something; you think about allRead more
