Peanut Butter Banana Refuel Smoothie

Marathon Monday is just a week away. Growing up in Massachusetts, it was always a big deal. I was shocked to find out it wasn’t actually a national holiday and most people work on Marathon Monday. This year Stonyfield Greek is the official yogurt of the 2014 Boston Marathon. They asked their Clean Plate Club members…

Spinach Mushroom Frittata

If you read this blog often, you might not think I eat anything other than dessert. Hopefully this shows otherwise. Of course I eat savory food every day, several meals a day. But I hardly ever blog about it because I’m someone who’s content with having the same meal for lunch every day of the…

4 Healthy New Year’s Recipes

New Year’s resolutions are hard. It’s easy to shoot to high and make resolutions impossible to keep up with; the best kind are little changes you can work into your everyday routine and maintain without even thinking about it. I didn’t make a food or fitness resolution this year. Mine is to get whiter teeth,…

Rich Chocolate Oatmeal

The best breakfasts(I think) are the ones that taste like a dessert. While I might down a veggie egg omelet and perfectly salted home fries at a brunch, I’ll never cook myself something savory in the morning. I’d much rather put in the time and effort for french toast, glazed waffles, or this oatmeal. When…

Gluten-Free Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Oatmeal

Breakfast is always my laziest meal of the day. More often than not I won’t spend more than 5 minutes getting it ready and spend another 5 eating it. When I had to go without a microwave for a couple weeks last month it forced me out of my instant-microwaved oatmeal rut. Even still most…

Maple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bread

Do you know what November is? Besides depressingly cold. It’s national peanut butter month! And to stir things up, the National Peanut Board invited bloggers to come up with a new peanut butter recipe to post and spread the love. At this point, there are few recipes that I haven’t made with peanut butter. It’s…

Healthy Black Bean Quesadilla

The saddest thing about moving to a new city besides leaving behind friends and family is always leaving behind good restaurants. There are always a few dished you just can’t find anywhere else and you don’t know what to do about it. Last time I was in Providence I had huevos rancheros with a black…

Coconut Caramel Muffins

What do you do with a ton of caramel(besides eating it off of your fingers and spoons) other than bake with it? If you know please tell me because I still have a cup left after making these and about 12 new cavities. The first thing I thought of was coconut and caramel. It’s sweet…

Caprese Omelet

Fresh mozzarella is something great. It’s just the right amount of creamy and chewy that melts just right. I could eat just about anything with fresh mozzarella and basil on it. This omelet is just as flavorful as any caprese salad or margarita pizza. The eggs give a blank canvas for sweet sundried tomatoes, creamy…

Easy Broccoli Frittata

On an average day I eat more eggs than anybody I know. I wish they were always this intricately flavored and delicious but more often than not they’re just scrambled. But once in a while—once in a while it’s refreshing to put time and thought into the simple egg and make something with a little…
