Five favorite things I've eaten lately.
Hello lovely friends! Today I wanted to share with you some of the favorite things I've eaten lately. With Valentine's Day and a long holiday weekend in the mix, my eats have definitely been less focused on veggies, and more focused on chocolate. But hey - that's life and it's all about BALANCE. Check out my fav's below!
-The Best Shakshuka: GUYS. Who knew such a simple combination could be so good? I was in LOVE with this recipe for how truly easy (and delicious) it was. I ditched the onion and used a garlic-infused oil instead of minced garlic for all my fellow low-FODMAP peeps out there. I used THIS recipe and will definitely make this again.
-Fudgy Raspberry Almond Butter Brownies: I'm not typically that excited about baking, but I find it therapeutic when I have a free afternoon on the weekend and most of the ingredients on hand already. I tried THIS recipe (sensing a trend? Alexis's blog is amazing) and was just as impressed as the Shakshuka recipe above. Although they are vegan, they definitely don't taste like it. Another winner!
-Woodstock Farms Organic Sauerkraut: This might be a bit of a wildcard, but I personally don't mind the taste of sauerkraut. I also really appreciate that it's rich in probiotics to help keep my gut-health on the right track. I'm trying to get in ALL the probiotics I can lately! I've been throwing it on top of salads and I don't mind it at all!
- Coconut Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Macrobars: These may have an obnoxiously long name, but they're currently my favorite snack for the work week. I love that they are relatively dense for their size (270 calories), easy to pack, and fill me up until dinner. They have a lot of awesome flavors, but this one is my current fav.
-Almond Milk Latte: Would you believe that I've never had a latte before? If I'm drinking coffee I'm usually pretty boring - just black coffee or iced coffee. This time I decided to be wild (note the sarcasm) and order an almond milk latte. And my friends - it was amazing. This will become a regular thing. Also on my list is a matcha latte - I've never had one and now I feel like I need to try!
