K, did I just blow your MIND?! Am I the only one who, given the choice, would lick the cake batter out of the bowl every day of my life as a main course if I could? Besides the fact that that’s basically asking for diabetes, I can’t do that because massive sugar overloads cause me to fall asleep (almost instantly – it’s like my super power). BUT WAIT – I stumbled across the best thing since sliced bread – you can freakin’ MAKE healthy cake batter dip that you can literally eat by the…

In this recipe I added plain, non-fat Greek yogurt for extra protein and one scoop of vanilla Shakeology, but you could use any vanilla protein or…

I don’t know about you guys, but Asian food has honestly never been my thing. If I’m going to splurge on some (generally speaking) unhealthy food, it’s going to be Mexican every time. However, I LOVE cashews and cashew Chicken! This recipe is a healthy twist on cashew chicken with a lot less sodium. I personally think the taste is phenomenal, but I’ll let you be the judge! This recipe was inspired by a paleo version of cashew chicken, but as most of those ingredients were kind of obscure I subbed a few out for…
