For some reason I always forget about rice cakes. I rediscovered them last year when I was participating in a fitness challenge at my gym and had to stick to certain ratios of carbs, protein, and fats. They’re an amazing source of pre or post workout carbs, but once the challenge was over and I stopped tracking what I was eating, I quickly forgot about them again. The past couple weeks I’ve had a new awakening to rice cakes again, but it can get a little boring just slathering on some nut butter (cashew FO LIFE) and chowing down. I… View Post

I’ve got a special recipe for you today from my friend Lindsay who recently released a BEAUTIFUL cookbook called Nourishing Superfood Bowls. I’ve followed Lindsay’s blog, Cotter Crunch, for several years and was finally able to meet her last year at the Everything Food Conference. I’m a huge fan of her photography and her food, so I’m really proud of her for putting together this compilation of breakfast, lunch, family-style, plant-based, and dessert bowls. She is also gluten-free, as are all the recipes in this book. I highly suggest grabbing a copy for yourself (or someone else), which you can… View Post

This post is sponsored by Sir Kensington’s. If you know me, you know I love sandwiches. I’ve been having the same turkey sandwich at dinner every night for literally somewhere around three months. I take pictures of sandwiches, I hunt them down, and I just get really excited to try new ones. (If you know of some good combos, let me know in the comments!) I’ve also been eating a lot of tuna lately because I went crazy and got 13156467 cans of it from Costco, so I’m trying to work my way through it. Normally I just eat it… View Post

This post is sponsored by Vital Proteins Ok, so there’s more ingredients than just those three, but apple ginger lemon turmeric green protein smoothie doesn’t really roll off the tongue, now does it? This has been one of my favorite smoothies for a couple years now and especially one I love during the winter. I first had a similar one at a smoothie shop and after realizing how simple it was, came home to recreate it on the regular. One reason I love it during winter is that it’s full of anti-inflammatory and sickness-preventing ingredients (that’s a word). I was… View Post

This post is sponsored by Vital Proteins. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to like tomato soup. It always looks so appealing when I see someone eating it or talking about dipping a grilled cheese sandwich in a nice warm bowl. I’ve tried over the years and always failed. When I received a shipment of tomatoes and wasn’t sure what to do with them, the thought of tomato soup again popped into my head. What made me actually decide to make some was the fact that I found myself eating a handful of tomatoes every time I… View Post
