Ok, if you haven't tried Romesco Sauce before, GET READY. It's one of my absolute favorite recipes and something I always have stocked in my fridge. It's hard to describe the deliciousness of this Spanish sauce, but I'll try my best. It's perfectly smoky yet sweet & nutty, and it literally pairs well with everything - fish, chicken, steaks, roasted veggies, or a big crudité platter! It's the most versatile and healthy sauce (happens to be paleo too!) and takes just minutes to whip up in the blender.
You guys. These muffins! There's something about blueberry muffins baking in the oven that just makes me super giddy and excited. I sit in front of the oven like a little girl and just watch them bake. And then when they're done, I can't even wait a second for them to cool before digging in. I tested the recipe for these muffins a few times, and I have to say, the end result was pretty darn perfect. They have just the right amount juiciness from the blueberries and a hint of zest from the lemon, all topped with a perfectly sweet, nutty, and crumbly streusel topping. Heavenly!
I'm always on the lookout for great ways to satisfy my sweet tooth while staying on track with a healthy lifestyle. You'll see in my post about tips for mindfully indulging your sweet tooth, one of my top tips is opting for homemade sweets so you know exactly what ingredients are going into your body. One of my all-time favorite treats to make at home has to be these Coconut Butter Mints! You can make them with just 2 or 3 ingredients and keep them stocked in your fridge for whenever your sweet tooth comes calling.
Remember a couple weeks back when I partnered with Inspired by This to share my go-to shopping list for Trader Joe's? Well we're back at it, and this time we're perusing the aisles of Whole Foods! I know grocery shopping can sometimes feel like an overwhelming task. There are so many products out there, and it's hard to decide which ones are actually healthy choices. Here are a few of the products that I just can't leave the store without, and in the full post on Inspired by This, we're breaking down ALL of the best options and sharing a giant list that you can pin for your next trip to Whole Foods!
One of the most common questions I get from clients, friends, and readers is how to satisfy a demanding sweet tooth without completely falling off the wagon. Believe me, I get it. I love my sweets. It's something I look forward to each day, and if someone tried to tell me I couldn't have it, I'd feel deprived and restricted, and I'd want it that much more. Then I'd probably overdo it, and feel a little guilty for going overboard. So it's important to quit the deprivation and restriction, and figure out how to indulge consciously, mindfully, and guiltlessly! Delicious sweets are supposed to make you feel satisfied and happy, after all. Here's my 5 tips to make it happen.
