Just Peachy Chia Pudding

Oh geez my friends, I got my husband hooked on this recipe! He’s already a lover of my classic chia pudding but add in one of his favourite fruit (peaches), and now he won’t leave me alone.  “Can you please make that peach chia pudding?”.  “I really love that peach chia pudding”.  “We have to go to the farmer’s market on Sunday to get more peaches for that chia pudding”. And, on and on he goes.

Making my own nut butters brings me great enjoyment. Think about it – a jar of almond butter is sooo expensive.  When I walk through my natural foods store, I’m always looking for a sale since these decadent-type butters are in such small jars and they barely last a couple of weeks.

Happy belated New Year! I am so looking forward to 2016.  The past year had a few bumps along the way. I actually fell asleep at 9:30 pm on New Year’s Eve – what a way to ring in the new year right?  And, hope it’s not a sign of what 2016 has in order as I have so many desires for this year.

No Bake Bars

I’m putting together this post as I sit and have my last morning coffee in Newport Beach, California.  James and I took some time off to jet off to Palm Springs and Newport Beach for about five days – it was heaven.  I ended up catching my yearly “head cold” on route but thankfully, it wasn’t anything major.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Holy crap these muffins are sooo good!

Don’t like zucchini?  I promise you that you won’t even notice that they are in the muffin.  I swear, I promise!

Sometimes, with super healthy muffins, they can be dry or heavy but not these babies.  These muffins are moist, not too sweet and full of healthy goodness – zucchini! The zucchini is what makes these muffins so moist.  Just be sure that you squeeze as much water out of them so that they cook properly.

IMG_8363

I think I may have concocted the best granola bars ever!  I know, that’s a big statement but these Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bars – high protein, grain free, no bake! really are great.  My husband just loves his peanut butter.  I’ve tried to switch him over to almond butter for a change but he won’t have it.  These are made with peanut butter but feel free to switch it over to another nut butter or seed butter if you are not into peanuts.

picmonkey

People would find it hard to believe that I don’t mind a good football game.  About 14 years ago, I lived in Atlanta, Georgia where I received an internship for about one year. I ended up managing a huge sports bar during that time where I worked most weekend days.  Weekends are big in the US for American football and I caught the bug.

I’ve got a round up of 10 Healthy Super Bowl recipes that have even been man approved too!
