Does eating this Winter Goddess Bowl make you look like a real life version of Elsa from Frozen? Probably not, but it will help you get an amazing glow from all the superfoods you will be eating. Plus even if it did, it would be called a Winter Ice Queen bowl. DUH.
The New Year is here and here comes hearing about everyone's resolutions. One resolution that I hear often or bring up with clients is adding in a balanced breakfast to the day. Breakfast can be hard for people because they either do not have time to make breakfast or do not have enough time to sit down to it. One easy way to get in nutrition is making a protein shake!
During the holidays, I decided to make Alton Brown's famous chewy chocolate chip cookie and boy was it good! I wanted to come up with a chewy cookie recipe for you guys that is like this cookie but adds in more filling and macrobalanced ingredients. I used a similar process to how Alton melts the butter prior to adding to the dry ingredients to this recipe. It helps create a chewier but crispy on the outside cookie. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and uses no refined sugar. Hope you love it!
Who doesn't love banana bread? Even the smell that circles the room when you bake it is intoxicating. It is the kind of baked good that can bring back memories for any one! Memories such as the banana bread grandma used to make or the banana bread you ate while driving Road to Hana in Maui. I love banana bread, but I needed a way to make it macrobalanced. This version uses higher protein flour such as almond flour and uses no refined sugar.
Fall is in full effect (to be honest it is almost WINTER) and I love it! It's when my favorite carbs come into season and fill my plate with all their glory. What carbs you might ask? Winter squash! This includes and not limited to: acorn squash, butternut squash, delicata squash, and everyone's favorite, pumpkin! I wanted to a fun Asian flavor inspired squash for this dish because at that point I was loaded up on my pumpkin spice to my ears. Hope you like this side dish. Let me know what you pair it with in the comments below.
