My sister and I got back from a trip abroad on Sunday and I literally had the best time ever. With all the quality time, I learned two really big lessons that I feel EVERY GIRL has to know. I definitely struggle with these things and I’m happy I got the opportunity to work on it!
I’m so ready for Thanksgiving! Pumpkin pie is one of my most favorite things in the world. I even asked for it once as my birthday cake (my birthday is in June) so I’m pretty pumped for dessert on Thursday. The holidays are so special but the amount of decadent food around can make us beg for a cleanse around New Years. In this video I share how to keep it healthy during the most wonderful time of the year.
It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Easter or not, if you walk into any store there’s tons of candy all around tempting us into a sugar high! I’m all about healthy living and that means not depriving yourself of the things you love. Part of having your cake and eating it too is to make substitutions when you can so you enjoy a healthier treat. Candy is still candy, but when you make it yourself you know the ingredients that are going into it and can use portion control. Plus I love being in the kitchen! Dark chocolate peanut butter cups are one of my favorite candies so I decided to recreate my own. I used this recipe from the Sprouted Kitchen and substituted almond butter for peanut butter because that’s what I was craving.
Gooey melted chocolate!
This can get messy… Don’t wear white!
Make sure to press down the peanut butter mixture so that the chocolate on top dries flat.
