NO BAKE APRICOT DELIGHT

Breaking up with emotional eating can sometimes lack a little, dare I say it...sweetness
 

 

But saying adios muchachos to emotional eating does NOT have to a snooze-fest for your taste buds.

In fact, indulging in the occasional treat (without all the nasties) is essential to maintaining a healthy relationship with food and really, who doesn't like a little Afternoon Delight? (Oops! Did I say AFTERNOON? I meant APRICOT. Yup... that's definitely what I meant)

Can you eat your Raw Bounty Bites and lose weight too?

 

YES. YOU. CAN!

I've been experimenting with these little beauties for a while now (yes, it's a tough job, but someone's got to do it) and I have to say, not only do these Raw Bounty Bites taste AH.MAZ.ING, they are totally guilt free too!
You see, Ditching the Diet means waving a sweet (and in this case, chocolate coated) "bye bye" to deprivation. It means never having to say "no" to something you really want to eat, f...

Quinoa Pumpkin Salad with Black Beans and Avocado

If you're anything like me, a simple gal at heart (and by simple I mean you like the simple things in life. Your iPhone, your lipgloss and a good spray tan), then you will luuurve this Quinoa Pumpkin Salad with Black Beans and Avocado recipe.

Summer Broccoli, Kale and Pea Soup

Broccoli soup is one of my all times faves. Mainly because you'd have to have undergone a lobotomy to mess it up, but also because, it's just plain yum!
Recently I decided to up the anti on my regular repertoire by adding a few little extras to this down to earth dish by adding a base of creamy cauliflower mash with ricotta and roast garlic along with some lightly toasted pine nuts and almonds. And the result? Pretty darn delish.
Here's how it's don...

EASY CHIA JAM

June 23rd, 2015 | no comments

 

You know when you just WANT something sweet but not so sweet that it will send you on a sugar binge worthy of an Academy Award?

 

I think I'm the worlds biggest Chia fan. In fact, I may just start a Chia fan club.

I sprinkle it in my Chai Latte, eat Chia Pudding every day, throw a little (or a lot) in my Chocolate Banana Smoothie and sprinkle it like fairy dust in my Paleo Lemon Muffins. But now I have a new love (yes, I'm kinda fickle that way)... EASY CHIA JAM!!
