Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Strawberry Toast

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Toast

The other night Maria and I went to Catch NYC, one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Despite the number of times I've been, there is always a scene of actors, athletes, housewives and entourages. This week, we got Victoria Secret models.   We just so happened to have been sitting one table over, so of course we stalked them and everything they ate, or didn't eat. They ordered one whole snapper, and we kept it healthy with unfried sushi and sashimi. Our waiter ...

Spiced Ginger Raw Bars

Spiced Ginger Raw Bars

Last weekend my friend Jen and I spent about four hours in Argo Tea writing thank you cards for our weddings. They both happened to be on NYE :)  And anytime I'm in a coffee shop for more than 20 minutes, I have to scope out what they have to eat. Argo Tea has amazing healthy, vegan and gluten free options! Jen and I both went for their Spiced Ginger Raw Bars. They were chewy, sweet and my inspiration for these babies! If you've never made date bars or balls before, welcome ...

Summer is coming! Ah! I like to think of April as crunch time. Literally. It's the month leading up to summer, which means I'm going be in a bikini soon whether I like it or not. These past few weeks everyone around me is on some different type of juice cleanse, no carb diet, or workout program. Maria is doing the Kayla Itsines 12 Week Bikini Body Program... and I'm doing the green juice, no carb, I don't feel like working out program. Damn you Summer.  Now the real ...

Blueberry Pie Overnight Oats

Blueberry Pie Overnight Oats

We've been on somewhat of a breakfast kick lately :) I was first introduced to overnight oats by my friend Kate from work, who brings them every morning in a cute little mason jar. Overnight oats are a really great breakfast option for anyone looking to replace their bagel or muffin for breakfast, but can't jump right to a green smoothie. They are really filling, contain nothing processed or artificial, and are subtly sweetened with natural honey or maple syrup. That ...

Gluten Free Spring Pasta

Gluten Free Spring Pasta

It may not by sunny or particularly warm... but I painted my nails with Bikini So Teeny by Essie, so it makes it officially Spring :) And with Spring upon us, it means bright and colorful dishes! We chose to mix gluten free pasta with asparagus and peas that are in season right now. We also added cherry tomatoes for a pop of color. And although it sounds like I just described an outfit, I do think "the look" is important! This dish is also very versatile, you can add in or ...

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I've always been a huge fan of breakfast (hence the title, Spinach for Breakfast). Although before S4B, my idea of breakfast was an egg, ham and cheese on a plain bagel from Dunkin. And I wondered why I had stomach issues. :) We have a great variety of breakfast dishes on our blog, from smoothies and overnight oats, to breakfast quinoa and skinny egg sandwiches. This morning, we got pancakes! These Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pancakes from Mountain Mama ...

Gluten Free Raspberry Scones

Gluten Free Raspberry Scones

One of these days I will host one of those super cute Easter brunches like you see on Crate & Barrel. I'll get fun place settings, copy something from crafty from Martha Stewart and serve adorable fruit and yogurt parfaits in champagne glasses.  This year is not my year…  Neither is next year or probably the year after. But one of these days I'll be out of a NYC apartment and into a normal sized living space (most likely wishing I was back in NYC :) ...

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

Gluten Free Blueberry Mufffins

I'm on week two of the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Program! Before my wedding I was crazy about working out. There's really no motivation like wedding motivation. Then I got back from my honeymoon and found myself on the couch in sweats instead of on the treadmill. Oops :) But now warmer weather is coming and my few weeks of being a bum are over. Not only do I look better when I am working out, but I feel way better too. I decided to switch up my routine and try Kayla Itsines's ...

Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Oat and Banana Breakfast Cookies

You may not know that Spinach for Breakfast is not my full time job. As much as I love this damn blog, I do have a career that I am passionate about. And it has nothing to do with Spinach :) I am on the marketing team for a multi-billion dollar Real Estate firm located here in NYC! We are the largest owner of luxury residential rental properties in New York with over 5,000 units. Recently I've been touring all of our rental properties, including one building currently under ...
