Super Bowl is right around the corner! For some, that means a great day full of football. For me, it’s all about the food and the halftime show, but really, it’s about the food. It can be tough to find healthy options at a Super Bowl party since everything on the table tends to be salty, fried, cheesy, saucy, or carby. I’m a huge fan of bringing your own healthy dish to any party… that way you know there will always be something there for you and you won’t have to grab for the nachos out of hungry desperation or because there weren't any other options. Ideally, you want to bring something that’s healthy but delicious enough to satisfy the crowd, and it has to be easy to eat so people can dig in as they watch the game. These Avocado “Fries” do all of the above! They’re a fun finger-food, something a little different and exciting, and they’re really easy to make!
This Quinoa Enchilada Casserole has been a tried-and-true WNB recipe for nearly 4 years! It's been in need of a serious makeover for a while... some fresh, new photos and a few tweaks to the ingredients were a necessity, and I'm very excited that the time has finally come to share the not-so-new, but very-much-improved recipe! If you loved the recipe before, you're going to love it even more now! It's just as delicious as always, but a bit quicker to throw together and there's a new option to make it into a cauliflower rice enchilada casserole instead of quinoa, which is actually my favorite way to do it!
I was SUCH a cereal kid growing up. Frosted Flakes, Honey Bunches of Oats, and Lucky Charms were my go-to's. It's been a long time since my cereal days now that I'm so much more conscientious about buying products that are low in sugar and made with healthy, high-quality ingredients... but man, those were the days! I've since replaced those cereals with healthier granolas, but I have to say, I've had to scour all my favorite grocery stores to even find a couple brands that are actually healthy (although they usually come with a big price tag). Most store-bought granola is typically super high in sugar and carbs and is often made with poor-quality oils - even a lot of the brands that are supposed to be "healthy" are still using canola oil! So I decided it was time to create my own. A grain-free granola that's truly healthy and would pair perfectly with almond milk for my cereal cravings, could be used as a topping on my smoothie bowls or yogurt, and let's be honest, it has to be delicious enough to eat by the handful! Spoiler alert... this recipe meets all of that criteria and more!
I have a little story for you about cookies and friendship (two of the sweetest things in life, right!?). So a few years ago, I was on the hunt for a healthier chocolate chip cookie recipe. I had tried so many different ones, but just couldn't find a recipe for a healthy cookie that didn't taste healthy. I wanted something that would satisfy even the most decadent of sweet tooth's (ahem, like mine). After a lot of baking and critiquing (I always thought I should be a dessert critic, LOL), I finally found that perfect cookie. And not only did I find the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, I also reconnected with the genius baker and blogger-extraordinaire behind them, a long-time family friend who I hadn't seen in years, Rachel of Bakerita!
What could possibly bring on the holiday feels more than baking (and eating) chocolate peppermint cookies (while singing along to Mariah Carey All I Want For Christmas)? Speaking from experience, the answer is... nothing! These are the ultimate cookies of the holiday season and you're going to LOVE them!
They can be made with just one bowl and only 7 ingredients, including a box of Simple Mills chocolate cake mix. That's right, cake mix cookies. Doesn't get much easier! I'm 100% down for using this boxed cake mix whenever I can. It's the perfect little shortcut and unlike most cake mixes, this one is made with real ingredients that you can actually pronounce like almond flour, coconut sugar, and coconut flour. Talk about a perfect healthy swap! Here's how to whip them up!
