Spicy Chocolate Bark

The spicy chocolate bark was another addition to our Savor the Moment chocolate and wine meditation. This was my favorite. The spice gave it just the right kick. I also made coffee, almond and coconut chocolate bark, Almond Joy energy balls and chocolate, oat, flaxseed energy balls. Let me know in the comment section which chocolate…

Coffee, Almond and Coconut Chocolate Bark

My friend Angie and I did this Savor the Moment event. It was a meditation experience in which we paired wines and chocolates together and had each participant really experience the various components. This coffee bark was an interesting creation I made because it was the one dish I almost didn’t try. Coffee makes me…

Almond Joy Energy Balls

If you haven’t caught on by now, I make about everything in these bowls my sister throws. It all started with the good ol’ smoothie bowls. Toss a little fruit and some nut milk into a blender, top with some superfoods. Bada bing, bada boom. This company called Imlak’esh Organics has the most rad superfoods….

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I’ve been called “The Oatmeal Girl” lately for my creations with rolled and steel cut oats. Sometimes I throw them in a crock pot, others I make right then and there. Overnight oats are simple too because you can just put them in a jar in the refrigerator and they’re ready the next day. Energy…

Black Bean, Coconut Soup

There is this place I go to right by one of my yoga studios called the Chicago Health Foods Store. They rotate their soups but they often have this black bean soup. It is so creamy and dreamy. I asked soup master, Matt what was in the black bean soup. He said he makes it…

Blueberry Muffin Energy Balls

I might have to make it a weekly thing with these energy balls. They get me thinking about creative ways to make nuts and seeds taste even better. They’re also probably the easiest thing I make during my meal prep days! I made carrot cake energy balls and the blueberry muffin energy balls a couple…

What are Adaptogens?

I was rolling these Chocolate Chip Matcha Energy Balls at my parents’ house the other day when my grandparents showed up. I needed some taste testers so I asked everyone to try them. My grandpa actually loved them and he and my dad started to ask what was in them. I told them one ingredient,…
