Flourless, Eggless, Fudgy Black Bean Brownies

Happy Fat Tuesday & Day Before Valentine’s Day! I made these black bean brownies a few days ago and shared it on my Instagram stories, and got a ton of questions and interest in this recipe. I wanted to go ahead and give it another moment in the spotlight (even though it’s been on my

Intuitive Eating: Halloween Edition

This article was written in October of 2017. I know now that my perception of intuitive eating at that time was wrong and a lot of what I said in this post comes from a very “diet culture-y” place; however, I want to be transparent and show the evolution of my beliefs, values and education

First, I just want to get something off my chest. I LOVE carbs. I honestly can’t imagine my life without them. What do you mean no English muffin and banana at breakfast every day? No protein pancakes for dinner? No brown rice alongside my veggie stir fry or big bowl of whole wheat pasta with broccoli &

Find Your Balance

Some days I eat really well, have an awesome workout and get a lot done. Other days I eat like crap, lay on the couch half the day and watch ridiculous amounts of Friends re-runs. It’s all about balance. By the way, I recommend having more of the “eat well and workout” kind of days

Should You Be Gluten-Free?

Over the past few years, the gluten-free diet has become a huge phenomenon and gotten tons of attention as a means to lose weight or eat healthier. Sales of gluten-free products have sky-rocketed and more and more food companies are making and promoting their gluten-free products (even those that were already GF to begin with).
