I'm a sucker for seasonal food not to mention ALLLL things pumpkin spice, however giving up my year's worth of hard work in the gym to indulge and embrace the season is a little bit of a turn off. This guy is definitely the answer. Sugar free, Paleo, Dairy free and packed full of all of the favorite seasonal flavors, this Chia pudding works perfectly as a snack, breakfast or dessert. Enjoy!
Activated Charcoal is a game changer in the detox world and has so many uses, everything from a teeth whitener to a water filter but before I go off on a tangent today we are focusing on its detox properties!
These delicious balls of goodness may just win the award for the most fool proof snack to make EVER. Seriously easy and seriously delicious. Packed full of ALLLLLL the superfoods (Maca powder, cacao & coconut oil) to give your energy levels and your metabolism a lil boost pre workout or to pick you up and fill that choc craving in the afternoon. These guys are high in the good kind of fat that help your body lean down, so essentially another GUILT FREE treat to add to the list!
Summer may have come to an end however my love of fresh meals that leave you feeling oh so good will never die. Ceviche will always be a favorite of mine; it's healthy, it's super simple but impresses friends and lovers and tasty AF. What is it? It's originally a Latin American recipe for raw fish and seafood marinated in citrus juice, mainly lime and lemon juice.
Post workout nutrition is just as important as the workout, it's time to repair those muscles and build strong lean muscle. This is one of my go-to's, it's high in protein, has a nice little amount of carbs to help your body recover, cinnamon as a metabolic booster, Maca powder for energy, ginger as an anti inflammatory annnnnnnnnd literally tastes like cake batter. So much yessssss.
After playing around in the kitchen who knew the answer was chickpeas and protein powder and believe it or not but these tick all the healthy boxes; sugar free, vegan, gluten free, raw, dairy free, grain free so yes I have literally made magic happen haha.
