Blueberry Bliss Power Pancakes

Is there anything better than the smell of fresh pancakes filling your home on Saturday or Sunday mornings? Maybe if they’re pretty much guilt free, and for Valentine’s Day….which these gems are! As a clean-ish eating mama who lives by my own slogan of “eating clean for dirty dessert,” I try to keep most of …

Banana Zucchini Muffins with Apple + Blackberries

Based on the ingredients of these muffins, they’re basically power muffins…good for anytime of the day; breakfast, mid-day snack, a side with lunch, or even a healthy dessert. Totally guilt free and toddler-approved, which means whole family approved; what could be better?! I made these on Sunday to prep my little guys’ breakfast & snacks for …

Breakfast Snickerdoodle Cookies + Protein Frosting

Oh.My.Gosh. I think my life was changed this morning when I accidentally made my pancakes into “cookies” and threw together the most incredible “frosting” like, ever – with only 4 ingredients! Since saying goodbye to protein powders, I wanted to pack the protein punch into my breakfast this morning from whole foods I had lying …

My TIU Transformation

I’ve recently been getting a lot of compliments from friends and family recognizing my weight loss and muscle toning, and they’ve been interested in my “secret”. With positive feedback, always comes negative, however. (grrr) The good-‘ol backhanded complements all of a sudden keep flowing in like pesty flies… “Ummm, do you eat?” “You’re a t.w.i.g….” “Please …

Naner Taco

Once again I was inspired by a delicious TIU Nutrition Plan recipe, banana roll-ups, to recreate an even easier, quicker, less messy, more mama-on-a-quick-mission version. Ingredients: 1 Whole wheat or Ezeikel wrap 1 organic banana (can also add other organic fruit “toppings” like strawberries or blueberries) 1 tablespoon unsweetened, organic coconut flakes 2 teaspoons organic, …

Popeye Approved Smoothie

A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away rather than an apple, in my opinion! I don’t consume nearly enough fresh fruits or veggies throughout the day as I should, so smoothies are my way of sneaking them in. Well, not really sneaking, because I LOVE smoothies. And make one at least 4-5 times a …

Week 7 of Frisky Fall! Weekly Tracker Update

Hiiiii, Beach Babes!! WOW! Is anyone else in shock that this is already WEEK 7!?!?!! I’m sad over here!! I know we can always still check in, but I just LOVE the camaraderie that the 8-week challenges bring, and I’m going to be really bummed when #friskyfall is over 😦 I love the posted schedule this …

Protein-Packed Fall Flap Jacks

Fall. Flap Jacks. Is there anything more festive than the term flap jacks?? I immediately think of the holidays. Add in pumpkin and pumpkin spice, and oh boy, that’s a recipe I can’t wait to get my hands on. Which is exactly what I wanted to do with these gems. It only took me six …

FALLing out of Summer Parfait

Since the TIU Pumpkin Parfait took over my breakfast tastebuds, I decided to try another parfait this morning. The morning parfait is something so simple, yet I always forget about it! Probably because I’m a smoothie and acai berry bowl addict. Apples + Pumpkins = Oh my, it’s fall, ya’ll… I was grocery shopping yesterday …

Pumpkin Spice Parfait

All my recipes these days are inspired by the Tone It Up way of life, and I LOVE when Karena & Katrina come out with new goodies for members of their nutrition plan, like this Pumpkin Parfait.   What’s a Tone It Up mama to do? This week, my husband & my little munchkin both came down …
