Kale & Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potato


We are starting a 30 Day Vegan Challenge! Why? Because Beyonce did it. Just Kidding :) We often like to do "challenges" or "cleanses" like this for a number of reasons. First of all, mentally we don't like to be controlled by food. We don't like to think we will not survive if we don't have greek yogurt or hamburgers or egg sandwiches in our lives.  In turn, cutting out certain foods allows us to find new replacements and healthier options to hopefully become staples ...

Gluten Free Pumpkin Raisin Muffins


We have been dying to share these Gluten Free Pumpkin Raisin Muffins with you guys! Just because it's fall and all "pumpkin everything," doesn't mean you need to sacrifice your healthy eating habits! I mean listen, I walk by Doughnut Plant everyday on my way to work and have to fight an internal battle not to get a pumpkin yeast donut "because it's fall" and it smells so damn good. So I understand the urge :) Instead, we are going to give you guys some delicious, healthy, pumpkin ...

Simple Avocado Toast


Similar to our Almond Butter and Banana Rice Cake post from the other week, we are bringing to you guys another super simple, clean and healthy snack.  Avocado is a staple in our diet. Since we've altered our way of eating to cut out the "bad fats" as much as possible, we need to make sure we are including the "good fats." In addition to nuts, seeds, and raw nut butters, avocados are one of those great "high fat" foods with amazing health benefits. Research has shown that ...

Zucchini Pasta with Marinara and Chicken Sausage


As you could probably tell from our previous zucchini pasta post, we are slightly obsessed with the Veggetti :)  Not only do I love this little gadget, but I love the fact that I can make a filling meal with the bulk of it being only 35 calories! After eating pesto zucchini pasta for a week, I decided to go the "Italian" root and mix in a red sauce and organic chicken sausage. Because I don't always make my own sauce (sorry Nana!) I love to buy sauce by Rao's! Their sauce is made from ...

Skinny Egg Sandwich


This idea came to me one morning after being out for a NYC night of "fun." I woke up craving an egg and cheese sandwich on a bagel (hiiii), but knew it was a bad decision for many reasons... You know what they say, "a moment on the lips, forever on the hips!" Just kidding :)  I actually knew I would have felt pretty terrible after eating it, so I tried a "cleaner" version instead. My favorite part about this "sandwich" is the satisfaction it still provides despite its "healthiness." ...

Carrot & Mango Sunrise Juice

Carrot & Mango Sunrise Juice

Good Morning Sunshine!  The other weekend Alyssa and my mom threw me the most amazing bridal shower on a NYC rooftop. My only guidelines were no bridal games and I'm not opening gifts. I sound really fun huh? :) The truth is, I had friends and family traveling from all over and I wanted to make sure I had time to spend with everyone! Toward the end of the shower, I did end up opening a few things from my mom and my bridesmaids. My beautiful bridesmaids know me well, and got ...

Skinny Arms by Tracy Anderson

Fitness Friday

Tracy Anderson has skinny arms. Tracy Anderson has skinny everything. This video by Tracy Anderson is legit. It's only 8 minutes long, and your arms will burn like a mother. The goal is to obtain lean "ballet" arms- something I had before UConn, where I discovered 'nickel night' and 2am calzones. With this workout I actually see results, which is why I needed to share!  Happy Fitness Friday! :) Maria  & ...
