What I Eat in a Day {AIP}

Since starting the AIP diet, everyone keeps asking me, “what the heck do you actually eat???” I’ve had to eliminate SO many of my staples – everything from black pepper, baking powder, and curry to bell peppers and tomatoes…and the obvious nuts and grains.

REVIEW: July Favorites

RECIPE: Maple Crunch Granola {Oil-Free}

We LOVE granola, but it’s a struggle to find one we can eat without spending an arm and a leg.  Making your own not only saves you money, but you can also easily change up the flavor and texture. This time around, I was on a mission to create one that was not only full of flavor,…

RECIPE: Protein Explosion Bites {no-bake}

Chocolate AND peanut butter is, by far, my favorite flavor combination – in all forms – smoothies, cookies, ice cream, granola, you name it! When done in a healthier way, it makes it just that much more enjoyable! Last night I whipped up these no-bake goodies and they turned out even better than expected. The…
