    Chocolate Strawberry Bliss Balls (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I am ALL ABOUT the chocolate strawberry combo. After my food processor caught on fire a few weeks ago (yikes!) I got really excited about the new one I just purchased and had to make these Chocolate Strawberry Bliss Balls right away. They have a Valentine’s feel to them but are gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free, and loaded in nutrients. I even added collagen powder to mine for a real one-two punch. Collagen is an important protein our body makes on it’s own out of the amino acids we eat, but as we get older, we make less of it. This is one…

    No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bites (GF/DF/V)

    These delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bites were created after one particular morning when I was running late to take my daughter to school. She asked for breakfast and I yelled at her. Think about that. I yelled at her for wanting breakfast before school. Not my finest moment as a mom. But it did make me stop and think later that I really need to have a “grab and go” breakfast for mornings that are rushed. Obviously it was not my daughter’s fault that I didn’t manage my time well that morning. So later that day, I decided to make a big batch of energy bites that were both loaded in flavor…

    Healthy Peppermint Hot Chocolate (GF/DF/Paleo)

    I love a cozy cup of hot chocolate. My version has warm coconut milk, a dash of peppermint and a scoop of collagen powder which makes it not only delicious but deeply satisfying. Chocolate and peppermint is my favorite combination. This Healthy Peppermint Hot Chocolate tastes like the real thing but has ZERO sugars, ZERO artificial flavors, and ZERO dairy but is secretly loaded with 20 grams of skin, joint and immune boosting collagen protein. Ingredients Now this makes a big difference. I have tried all kinds of combinations of things until I came up with my absolute favorite.

    Pumpkin Peanut Butter Collagen Bars (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Throwing pumpkin into everything this fall and that includes my classic Paleo Reese’s. While the original recipe is always a hit, these pumpkin peanut butter bars are especially delicious. They have just a slight pumpkin flavor that elevates them to the next level. As a mom, I am all about throwing healthy ingredients into the things our kids love (eh hem, smoothies). Are you the same way? These babies are loaded with collagen, which not only gives them a protein boost, but is also great for their hair, skin, nails, bones and joints. But shhhhh I won’t tell if you won’t. You guys know I love to talk nutrition so let’s get a…

    Golden Glow Turmeric Latte (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Have you heard of golden milk? It’s also called golden tea, turmeric milk or turmeric latte. It’s actually an ancient ayervedic recipe that has been enjoyed for centuries to help balance the body and mind. The golden color comes from turmeric, a deep orange-yellow root that is well known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. This turmeric latte is loaded with turmeric, ginger and cinnamon which gives it a warm and slightly spicy taste. The traditional recipe includes warm cows milk and some warming Indian spices. I modernized mine by subbing in homemade almond milk and some coconut milk for richness. But if you tolerate cow’s milk, go for it. Traditionally they use the adaptogen…
