Snack? Dessert?  You decide.  Either way it's a healthy treat you'll feel no guilt when eating.

No Bake, homemade, SunButter Protein Cups make for a healthier, allergy-friendly, snack or dessert. Guilt free, gluten free & vegan too.

I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for my family.   While a store-bought protein bar may be a convenient choice, it is not always the best option out there!  Many are loaded with all types of sugars, artificial ingredients and allergens that can cause more harm than good. Luckily, this recipe for homemade SunButter Protein Cups are easy to make, have none of the junk, all of the clean protein and taste like dessert.  It has quickly become one of our all time favorites.

Salt and vinegar dress up these sweet potato bites for a mouth watering, tangy & delicious take on a classic potato chip.

Salt and vinegar dress up these sweet potato bites for a mouth watering, tangy & delicious take on a classic potato chip. My salt & vinegar love affair started back when I was a child in Canada.  I used to love the Hostess brand with little devils on the front of the bag.  Those seemed to pack the most punch and made my mouth pucker more than any other.  I'm pretty sure there was a time or two that I ate so many chips that I could no longer feel my tongue!  Despite both the pain and delight I put my mouth through, my love affair continued.

Whether you are throwing a party or attending one to celebrate the New Year, it's always good to start off the year with a few delicious appetizers, like these incredibly easy Hasselback Baby Potatoes.

The perfect holiday appetizer made to impress your guests and amuse your tastebuds. V,GF,T8Free

During this years' Christmas party, I made a batch Hasselback Potatoes for the first time using baby sized spuds. I barely had time after they came out of the oven to sneak a pic or 2 because they were gobbled up, right away.  Needless to say, I just had to make them again then again until finally, no one was around to eat them (except me and I may or may not have eaten 1 right out of the pan).

I tell you this because these little munchies made everyone happy!  Hubby, kiddos, guests...really everyone.  Because I only share the "hits" not "misses",  I was determined to get this recipe with you before New Years Eve.  Then I realized...tomorrow is NYE!!! WOW.  SO in order to get this out in a timely manner, this is going to be short and sweet.  Sorry.... no long stories, no wordy explanations, just pictures and this Hasselback Baby Potato recipe.   You have parties to get to anyways, right?

Even though I make mashed potatoes throughout the year, Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be the same without it. However, most recipes are loaded with butter & creams, which make it taste amazing but not healthy or allergy-friendly. So what if i told you that I had a healthier version.... a deliciously creamy, healthier version? Last year, I experimented a bit by making mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes and although it does taste perfectly fine, it just wasn’t the same.  Like when you know you're eating something healthy, but you’re still secretly wishing it was the real thing.  So I decided to mix the cauliflower in with the potatoes and you know what, it's the best darn Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes you’ll ever have.

Satisfy your chocolate cravings and give yourself a little boost with these vegan & allergy-friendly protein bites.

  My kids are always asking me to make more protein balls.  Every time I make them, they get gobbled up.  I could totally complain about how quickly they burn through these little treats, but I really can't .  I mean, there could be worse things they want to eat. Thankfully, you can whip up a batch or two of them in no time, because no cooking is required.  Yesterday, I tried my hand at a different combination and OH MY  GOODNESS,  these are just so so good.  Rich, chocolatey, bursting with espresso and best of all, hidden inside these little gems, is protein.  Yay for SunButter & Arbonne Chocolate protein powder!  

Getting out of bed early isn't awesome, but this breakfast recipe from the new book Vegan Bowl Attack! by Jackie Sobon of Vegan Yack Attack IS!

  Bowl food. It's the latest craze! But while I was creating a Pinterest board for vegan bowl food, Jackie Sobon went ahead and created an awesome cookbook.  Darn it!  :)  Actually, I LOVE this cookbook.  It is filled with more than 100 one-dish, plant-based bowls that everyone can enjoy, vegan or not.  They're hearty, nutritious and delicious, and sure to please anyone.  Just take a look at that Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl, doesn't it look fun?.
