The smell of gingerbread coming from the oven…

is pretty enticing.

And if you’re baking my happy, healthy and hot gingerbread cookies, it’s fine to indulge.

Because not only are my cookies grain free and high in protein, they can give you better skin, nails and hair thanks to a secret ingredient.

I’m totally loving this gingerbread latte…

now that the weather has really turned.

Not only is it warm, spicy and delicious, it’s loaded with protein and healthy fats so it’s awesome for your skin, hair, nails and body.  Win-win.

And I have a confession…I’m bored with pumpkin spice.  I like the concept of it, but then it’s just everywhere.  For such a long time.

I’m going out with the girls tonight…

a few drinks and appetizers, then a movie.  Because being happy, healthy and hot isn’t just about green drinks and collagen, it’s about having fun.

And if you want to have some chips with it, that’s cool too.

So here’s what I use to make this totally yummy dip: Continue reading

We got the beet!

It’s no secret that I love beets.  I also love some good ’80s music now and then.  

Beets are amazing for you, and I enjoy the earthy, slightly sweet taste.

Last year, I published a post that described how I roast whole beets, then peel them.  There was also an ’80s musical reference of course. Here’s a link:

But that whole process of roasting, then peeling, is a complete pain in the ass.  And a messy one, at that.

So I’m excited to tell you about my latest way to enjoy beets…
