butternut squash turmeric latte

this latte though.. we just got back from a road trip with stops in chatanooga, nashville, knoxville, gatlinburg, louisville, asheville, charleston and orlando.  and of course, we ate lots of yummy food along the way!! one of the most memorable things we enjoyed was a butternut squash turmeric latte at a little, healthy quick service restaurant called BimBeriBon in asheville, north carolina.  it literally smelled just like. . .

peanut butter protein shake

Back to back peanut butter recipes because peanut butter is pretty much the solution to all of my problems... I recently started hitting the gym and have been following up my workouts with protein shakes.  And I've finally found one that I absolutely love! 

I'm definitely not a huge fan of most protein powders that I've tried.  I've seen people mix protein powder and water and guzzle the drink down, but that's not even tolerable for me.  But mixing protein powder with allllllll the peanut butter makes everything better! 

shades of juice

I recently started going to the gym again after a very extended sabbatical.  💪  And earlier this week, I left there feeling like I had totally kicked ass.  Just kidding.  I totally got my ass kicked.  😳  After sitting outside on a tire for a good ten minutes trying to catch my breath and not throw up, I was eventually able to get myself in the car to head over to the grocery store and pick up some post-workout fuel. 

Well, as soon as I got there and stepped out of my car, I was feeling just as bad as I was when I stepped off of the stationary bike that nearly did me in...  🚴😵  The soreness was already setting in and I just couldn't shake the queasiness.  😷  So I decided to pick up some of nature's best medicine in the produce section and go home and make myself some fresh juice. 🍋🌱

Gingerbread Smoothie Bowls

🌲☃Christmas has arrived early this year 🎉 because now you can make healthy gingerbread men for your little ones during the holidays!  Gingerbread cookies have always been one of my favorite, if not my very favorite, cookie.  They’re one of the things I most look forward to this time of year! 

I have a friend who, every year around this time, for as long as I can remember, makes gingerbread and sugar cookies with her mom.  They bake and decorate dozens and dozens of gorgeous and absolutely delicious cookies to give out to family and friends for the holidays.  Year after year, I have walked into their house . . . 

Pumpkin Pecan Pie Green Smoothie Bowl

Well, we’re officially in that grace period between Halloween and Thanksgiving…  You know, that time between overloading on sweets and treats and, oh wait, more overloading on sweets and treats.  

Halloween was great this year, as it always is.  This was Zoey’s third Halloween, but the first Halloween that she actually really trick or treated.  Her first Halloween she was too young to trick or treat…  She just crawled around the house as a little strawberry (so cute).   Last year she dressed up as . . .

Guava Smoothie

Why have I never thought to put guava in a smoothie before? Seriously, why haven’t I?  The past couple of weeks I’ve been working on some guava recipes with the most delicious Guava Marmalade that PG Bakery so generously supplied for me.  PG Bakery is a local South Florida bakery that makes guava preserves and pastries from locally grown and handpicked Florida Guava.  Their strong commitment to quality—avoiding artificial coloring, flavor and preservatives—shines through in flavor.  This guava marmalade is so delicious that it’s been inspiring me to get creative and try using guava in new and exciting ways.  I’ve been trying to incorporate it into . . .
