2017-01-08 15.59.54

When I was eating a primarily vegan eating lifestyle, I was all over making protein bites as I was/am a snacking machine!  And I’m back with these Chocolate Pistachio Energy Bites.

Homemade Coconut Almond Hazelnut Nut Butter


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.

Everyday Chocolate Bark – Raw // Dairy Free


You know that I am a chocolate lover. Who the heck isn’t?

But this chocolate is actually good for you. I know! Good for you. Coconut oil is just such an amazing fat. It is so versatile and it makes for the best homemade chocolate. In this recipe, we also add a nut or seed butter to add some extra protein. So, for me, this makes the best afternoon snack.

Decadant Superfood Hot Choc 2

I love coffee.  I really, REALLY do.  Now, I’m not a 2-3 cup a day coffee drinker but I have one cup of joe a day. And, if you live in West Vancouver like I do, you’ll find me on the weekends at a local coffee shop with my honey, sipping away working on this website.

Hey, I even did a video on EatLifeBalanceTV with my ASK JULIE: Is Coffee Good or Bad For Me?

AMAZING Basil Hemp Flax Oil Pesto

Basil Hemp Flax Oil Pesto

I love me some pesto.  I posted this OMG Kale Pesto last year and it’s still one of my most popular recipes! Thank you for the support 🙂

You are always going to find a big ‘ol bag or container of hemp seeds in my fridge. Yes, I keep them in the fridge to retain their freshness.  In fact, I’m thinking that freezing them will also be an even better idea!  I thought hemp seeds added to a pesto in replacement of pine nuts would work and it does.  Hemp is also loaded with omega fats AND it’s a complete plant-based protein making it good for the body and easy to digest.

Banana Bread Protein Bites

Banana Bread Protein Bites

When I make treats, I always have my husband in mind.  He likes anything sweet and if I can make it healthy, even better!  Since he’s so active, it’s always ideal if it’s something quick and that he can easily snack on.  That’s why these Banana Bread Protein Bites are perfect.
