Food for Thought: Vegan Pizza

Being a lactose-intolerant has it’s downfalls. I’m not able to enjoy dairy products, like everyone else, simply because my system will corrupt. Would I like to order a Bean and Cheese Burrito with no worries? Of course! Would I want to eat that Cheeseburger with not a care in the world? Obviously! But my body…

Health Nut: Cookie Butter Madness

If you have never stepped foot in a Trader Joe’s, then I feel sad for you. If you’re completely anti-healthy grocery stores, then you might want to reconsider when I tell you that there is a certain product that Trader Joe’s offers to customers that is Heaven in a jar. At first bite, all you’ll hear is…

Food For Thought: Oatmeal Obsessed

It seems as if I eat oatmeal at least once everyday. When I’m not eating, I’m browsing food recipes from Pinterest or drooling over Instagram posts from food bloggers I follow. Now in every picture I always see Vigilant Eats oatmeal packs and figured I could try it to find out what the hype was…

Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

I might as well be a slave to Pinterest. Regardless of what I’m doing, I will always find a way to browse recipe ideas on my Pinterest feed. Now I try to actually replicate the recipes and try them for myself, but sometimes my busy schedule doesn’t always allow that. Fortunately today I was able…

Food for Thought: Hummus Wrap

While browsing my…

Food for Thought: Loaded Sweet Potato

I may sound different, but I actually prefer sweet potatoes over regular ones. I’m not sure what it is, but I feel instant gratification to order anything sweet potato related when I see it on the menu. Today was no exception. I’ve been obsessing and drooling over the healthy food pictures on  Sol Cal Cafe  ‘s instagram….

Food for Thought: Post-Workout Greens

Usually after working out, I always find myself thinking two things: Why do I have to be so hungry? WTF do I eat without eating my workout away? Normally my go-to is always something having to do with fruit. Whether it’s a smoothie, peanut butter and banana, fruit with yogurt, etc. Lately, I’ve surprised myself…

Food for Thought: Breakfast Quinoa Power Bowl

Alright you guys, I have officially be living under a rock. Normally overnight oats/oatmeal are my go-to for a quick breakfast, but I’ve recently been introduced to the idea of using Quinoa instead of Oats ( I know, duh! Why didn’t I think of this before?) Being that I can finally pronounce the word (KEY-…

Food For Thought: Healthy Pizza Ingredients

I’m convinced that Pizza is my soulmate. It’s the one thing that can always make any bad day transform into something amazing. In fact, sometimes I like to travel to my local Whole Foods just to get my favorite pizza to make everything better. While I know most will say that “healthy” is never the…

How to Eat Healthy On Thanksgiving (No Really)

Thanksgiving is the the one day when we all have the excuse to stuff our faces and have no shame. Food comas are expected and after attacking our food with seconds (or maybe be that person who eats more than two servings. I may or may not have been that person; don’t judge me!), we all…

Food for Thought: Waffle Wednesday

Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the week, simply because I like to call it “Waffle Wednesday.” I’m a sucker for breakfast food, so I always try to ensure to have my waffle fix at least once a week. What can I say, it’s an addiction! Also what better day then to have…
