I don’t know about you, but I have to mix up my breakfast meals. As much as I wish I could eat a bowl (or two) of Lucky Charms every morning, that’s just not good for the belly, buttocks, or the career. So, I force myself to get creative. I don’t do dairy anymore, which is so sad, and I haven’t found a nondairy yogurt I’m in love with yet, so yeah… a fruit and granola yogurt parfait is out of the question unfortunately. BUT I’ve been on a big avocado kick lately. Of course I started with the avo toast, but I just realistically cannot start every day with a piece of bread. LBH. Hence, I just recently concocted the best homemade smoothie I have ever made- enter my newest obsession, My Go-To Green Smoothie!
There are few things that make me happier than the words “healthy” and “dessert.” Unfortunately, these two aren’t necessarily BFFs. But lucky for me, my grandma* knows how to force the friendship between the two, and the result is pure genius. Whether it’s her famous fruit salad or her breadcrumb-tendered chicken, Grandma sure knows how to make me smile in the kitchen! My favorite recipe of hers? Her Sugar- Free, No- Bake Key Lime Pie.
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably looking for new, creative ways to rejuvenate and recharge for the new year. Maybe you made healthy, nutritious choices over the holiday, but LBH probably not. This recipe is for those who feel puh-retty icky after eating all the wrong things and drinking too much champagne in the recent weeks- ouch, head hurts from just typing that. I made this slaw for the first time a few days ago, and it instantly made me feel 100% fresher, lighter, and healthier.
