Paleo Pumpkin Bread with Spiced Sugar Pumpkin Seed Topping

Today it FINALLY feels like fall, and I could not be happier! I’m currently in Seattle for a quick Halloweekend getaway to visit my friend Les from The Balanced Berry. I cannot begin to tell you how nice it is to get out of the 100 degree L.A. heat and go to a city where I can finally wear a sweater! Plus, I have the best company. With Halloween so close, it’s been killing me that I haven’t really been feelin’ those fall vibes yet. The weather has a huge effect on that! I need seasons. Even just a few days…

Butterbeer Cookies (Paleo)

If you couldn’t already guess, I’m in a Harry Potter mood. Well, I’m always in a Harry Potter mood, but especially now. Whenever fall rolls around and the holidays approach, all I want to do is curl up on the couch under a blanket and watch Harry Potter all day long. I’m also currently debating re-reading the books for the 18th time (I am not exaggerating), but that might be too much of a time commitment for me right now considering all of the other things I should be reading. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you already know what Butterbeer is. If…

Flourless Pumpkin Fudge Brownies (Paleo / Vegan)

It’s that time again… Pumpkin fever has taken over. I wanted to wait a bit longer to post a pumpkin recipe (October?), but if Trader Joe’s says it’s pumpkin time, then it’s pumpkin time. Plus, everyone has been posting about pumpkin-flavored things nonstop on social media, so I’m getting the itch. I feel like the pumpkin hype starts earlier and earlier each year – is that just me?! I thought I’d start off with a transitional recipe, because brownies are a year-round kinda thing. Pumpkin brownies are a great way to kick off pumpkin season, just in case you’re not totally in…

Sugar-Free Lemon Bar Smoothie (Paleo / Vegan / Keto)

Who doesn’t love a good lemon bar?! Well, truth is… Not always me. Let me be clear. I love all things lemon. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors, and always has been. Because of that, I always like the idea of a lemon bar. That citrusy bite is extra refreshing and reminds me of summertime. What I don’t like about traditional lemon bars, though, is the bread-y bottom. I’ve talked about this before when it comes to pies. I’m not really a pie person, because I don’t like the crust. I have the same problem with lemon bars. The bottom crust is always just…

Mind Pump Ahoy! Keto Cacao Nib Cashew Cookies (Paleo / Vegan)

A few weeks ago, I published an episode of Actually Adultish with Adam and Sal from the Mind Pump podcast, which has been one of my all-time favorite podcasts for a long time. The hosts of Mind Pump – Adam, Sal, and Justin – are incredibly knowledgeable and have a ton of experience in the fitness industry. Their podcast addresses pretty much every health/fitness/diet trend and myth you could think of, and they cut through all of the BS in the industry to help people figure out what information they can actually trust. Basically, we have the same agenda. They’ve…
