I’m always looking for an excuse to wear bunny ears…

so I whipped up a fun little Easter treat.

One that’s tastes completely indulgent but is loaded with healthy fat and collagen protein for gorgeous, glowing skin.

And on the subject of bunny ears, do I really need an excuse?  I didn’t think so.

So what’s the treat?  Continue reading

Since Easter is right around the corner…

it’s a good time to address sugar cravings.

Because there is something so appealing about all of that chocolate and marshmallow wrapped up in pretty pastel colors.  I am such a sucker for seasonal packaging.

I could give you dozens of reasons why you should avoid sugar.  

But I’m going to give you just one…because it really struck home for me.

Sugar causes wrinkles.

Instead of a Shamrock Shake…

In the interest of keeping things real, St. Patrick’s Day has never really been my thing.  It kind of sneaks in between Valentine’s and Easter.  Shamrock Shakes and green beer don’t really hold much appeal for me.  And I haven’t seen green wine anywhere.

Totally into “I Like Me Better” by Lauv and “Never Be the Same” by Camila Cabello.  Actually pretty much obsessed with all of her music right now…she is a total badass.

It has such a mild taste so it’s super versatile.

When you buy the pre-washed kind, it’s always ready to go.  Organic is the way to go when buying leafy greens.  And I personally prefer the baby spinach because it’s nice and tender for salads.

So here are some of my favorite ways to use it: Continue reading

Creamy clam chower…

without the cream.

Definitely a challenge.  But one I was up for.

Love clam chowder, but most recipes include dairy and flour, two things I try to avoid.

So I played around and came up with my own happy, healthy and hot version that’s loaded with clams and still nice and creamy thanks to a secret ingredient… Continue reading
