Raspberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

The other day I got into a debate with my friend on what is better: smoothies or smoothie bowls. I think smoothie bowls win, hands down. They are just so much more versatile in terms of toppings and it is way more fun eating it with a spoon when thickened with frozen banana. The texture becomes almost like ice cream! In this smoothie bowl, I add frozen banana to frozen raspberries and coconut milk for a dairy-free alternative to milk […]

Nectarine Oatmeal Smoothie

Big, juicy nectarines are one of my favorite things about summer. I love them so much that I usually buy so many and I never can eat them all before they go bad. They ripen very quickly! The perfect solution to this problem is this nectarine oatmeal smoothie. Once nectarines start to get a little mushy, I slice them up and toss them in this delicious blend. I love adding some oats to it to make it a filling breakfast […]

Three-Seed Protein Bites

Three different seeds add a lot of protein, fiber and healthy fats to these energy bites. They’re a perfect post-workout snack to help refuel your muscles and give you a boost of energy.

They’re really easy to make – no baking required. Three-Seed Protein Bites Ingredients 1 […]

Peaches ‘n Oats Smoothie

This Peaches ‘n Oats Smoothie is one of my favorite breakfast smoothies! It must be the oats; I love eating them in the morning for breakfast because they’re so filling and keep the hunger away for hours. I also like to sprinkle some oats on top when it’s all done. If you like your smoothies to have more of a chilled, slushy texture, freeze the fresh peaches for at least 45 minutes (or overnight) before adding them to the Magic Bullet […]

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie

This smoothie recipe is for all of my strawberry lovers out there! Strawberries are my favorite fruit; I can never eat enough of them! In the mornings, I like to mix strawberries with oatmeal, so I thought a strawberry oatmeal smoothie would be a perfect way to change up my breakfast routine. Frozen strawberries give this smoothie a refreshing texture and the oatmeal adds in some healthy fiber. Smoothies are perfect for those mornings when you’re in a rush. It […]

Making Your Own Flour

So, I don’t know about all of you out there, but I grew up in a household that did not idolize Martha Stewart. I may or may not be mildly obsessed with all her craft products and drool-worthy recipes now, but growing up I thought she was a weirdo. Like, seriously. On her shows back then she would do something like, I don’t know, make butter, and I swear it would start with milking the cow. Who has a cow […]

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

There’s this whole debate in the blogosphere about the blurring of reality and fiction. In the sense, that sometimes you write what you think people want to read as opposed to what you really think or you begin omitting truths. Well, I have a truth to tell you that I don’t tell a lot of people. You ready? I don’t like pancakes. There. I said it. “Blasphemy!” you say. “Who doesn’t like pancakes?!” you ask. Yup, that’s me—the weirdo who […]

Mama’s Granola

Hello Magic Bullet Heads, The other day, my mom taught me how to make the famous granola that she and my dad eat every morning for breakfast. My mom started making her own granola because, in her words, “the stuff at the store was getting too expensive and just stopped tasting good.”  If you share a similar sentiment and have never tried making your own granola, then I highly recommend taking the plunge. Not only is this granola super easy to […]
