I'm 21. I love anything fitness/nutrition related. and health/food blogs are my favorite!

Take out food gets a bad reputation as a classic “unhealthy” choice but I think stir fries are not only delicious and easy to make healthy, they’re also the perfect example of food that tastes great and just happens to be good for you! Of course you do have to watch out for sodium but like any part of healthy living it’s about moderation not deprivation.

The key, in all of the stir fry recipes, is to use really high heat. The high heat gives the dish a sear and caramelizes the soy sauce making it absolutely fantastic. To keep it from sticking use water 1-2 Tbsp. at a time and use the best nonstick pan you have!

In any of these recipes feel free to swap whatever veggies you personally love and if you’re vegetarian try swapping out meat for LightLife Lean Grounds (I like the sausage best).

These peanut butter cookies are, without a doubt, a gift from the Gods.  When I am in the mood for a warm, moist, soul-satisfying treat, I whip up a quick batch of these bad boys and I swear all that could ever be wrong in the world is righted. 
*makes a dozen cookies
Ingredients:
1 Cup Chunky Organic Peanut Butter
1 Whole Egg (vegans sub for 2 Tbsp Egg Replacer)
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Sucanat 
1 Tsp Natural Vanilla
*note: if you don’t have sucanat, you can sub for coconut sugar OR 1/2 cup flour of your choice, I like oat or coconut flour and 3 packets stevia
Directions:
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Blend all ingredients together until a thick well mix dough forms (I do this by hand but an electric mixer works great too)
3. Roll into balls (as large or small as you wish) and place on parchment covered baking sheet
4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden.  Once removed, use a fork to make decorative designs and allow to cool for 15 minutes until cookies harden.

  • Me: Why do you brush your teeth?
  • Friend: Ummm, because I feel disgusting if I don't.
  • Me: Exactly.
