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…

Packed Lunch: Rice & Bean Bowl

I’m one of those people at the office who brings in lunch every day. The same lunch every single day. The Huffington Post wrote an article about us. Sure packing a lunch every day can get tiresome, but it’s cheaper and healthier to do it yourself. It’s hard to argue with that. If you’re on…

Buffalo Cream Cheese Chex Dip + Giveaway

I love being challenged to make recipes with a few ingredients(a la Chopped). I think it’s easier than starting with a blank canvas. Chex & General Mills challenged me to make something with Chex cereal and Frank’s hot sauce—an odd combination for sure. But immediately I had an idea and I’m happy it turned out…

4 Easy Nutella Recipes

I have two half-eaten jars of Nutella in my kitchen. I think I have a problem. (I need more Nutella.) There’s a store near me that sells imported European jars for less than $4($3 each if you buy 3). At that price it’s hard not to turn into an addict. Not that Nutella on oatmeal…

Healthy Mocha Frappe

As a Clean Plate Club member Stonyfield sent me their 2 newest flavors of Greek yogurt, cafe latte and black cherry, as well as their re-perfected traditional flavors. I was super excited because if there’s one flavor of yogurt I’ve been wanting for the past couple of years it’s coffee(seriously, just check my Twitter archive)….

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,…

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…

Chocolate Almond Granola Bars

I’m a snacker. I can’t imagine how somebody could go from lunch all the way to dinner time without snacking on something. Seriously, how do they do it? I’m usually reaching for a candy bar or bag of popcorn at 3pm and more often than not know I should be eating something healthier. I first…

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…

Lunch Box Trail Mix

I’m a conservative when it comes to trail mix politics. I won’t go near one at the store if it has dried pineapples or brazil nuts; I would say that even pumpkin seeds are pushing it for me. The best trail mix is the simple kind you grew up with. This is a classic mix…
