Quarantine Eats: Choco Chickpea Cookie Dough Bites

Lately, I have been seeing chickpea cookie dough recipes everywhere. I was shocked when I first saw it because I didn't understand how chickpeas could be turned into anything sweet enough to eat as a dessert. And I proved myself right when I first tried to make chickpea cookie dough. Gross. I was about to …

Quarantine Eats: Banana Protein Pancakes

Before quarantine, I wasn't buying bananas that often. In fact, I wasn't really buying much fruit at all (other than apples) because, with my morning workouts & commute to work, my breakfasts were always grab-and-go bars and such. However, throughout quarantine, I've been buying a ton of fruit, including bananas. And we all know how …

Quarantine Eats: Healthy Choco Chip Banana Bread

I have always loved banana bread. While in college, I'd make it all the time - mainly because I always bought too many bananas and they went bad so quickly. But that's the beauty of banana bread - it allows you to make something so delicious out of something thought to have gone 'bad.' ...which …

Quarantine Eats: Cauli-Rice Veggie Burrito Bowl

I'm not going to lie...I was missing my go-to fast-food Mexican spots like Illegal Pete's (my fav) and Chipotle (Matthew's fav) when whole quarantine started.

Quarantine Eats: Kodiak Cakes Berry Muffins

I recently discovered Kodiak Cakes. And I must say, I'm a big fan. Matthew & I have been making Kodiak Cakes pancakes nearly every weekend of quarantine - and we don't feel so bad because they're protein-filled and whole wheat (at least that's what we tell ourselves). But this post isn't about the pancakes (although …

Quarantine Eats: FroYo Blueberries

Big sweet tooth? Same, dude. I have the biggest sweet tooth. Like, happily-eat-a-whole-container-of-frosting-in-one-sitting sweet tooth. And as much as I'd love to believe that sweets are good for my health, they just aren't. So, I've given them up. Well, kinda. I've come up with alternatives. And one of the healthier alternatives I've created are what …

Quarantine Eats: Roasted Carrots + Greek Yogurt Mustard Sauce

If you're like me, you only buy carrots to force yourself to try a healthy alternative to pita chips for your hummus. OR to gain some of the healthy benefits that carrots provide, like lower cholesterol levels and improved vision (so they say!). But if you're truly like me, you get sick of the taste …
