My Energy Blasts recipe was originally published April 1, 2016. Since that time this recipe has been featured in several media outlets, including Shape and Men’s Fitness. Given the popularity of this recipe (it’s one of the top visited pages on this site!) I decided to give the photos an update.
As a yoga teacher, I am constantly looking to improve my teaching skills in addition to my knowledge of yoga and personal practice. In January 2016 I began the journey towards my 500 hour yoga teacher training certification with Laughing Lotus in NYC. The training involves 50-hour week-long intensives. I still have a few more modules to go – my sights are set on completing training this summer! The days are long and they work us hard, especially when the trainings are focused on the physical practice. At any given break opportunity we are refueling. I always pack an endless supply of snacks whenever attending these long days because breaks are short, but my hunger level is super-high! Making a batch of these Energy Blasts has been a lifesaver in the afternoons when there are still many more hours left in the day and more handstands to be mastered.

In honor of this recipe getting a recent feature on Prevention, I decided to give the photography a little makeover. Enjoy!
Mr E and I went on a recent winter getaway to Hawaii. And of course every meal in the weeks following involved seafood and some tropical theme. So when I went to my local grocery store and saw habanero peppers and a large bin of pineapples, I knew a Pineapple Habanero sauce would be born. Continue reading “Pineapple Habanero Sauce”

Happy National Hummus Day! You’re just in time to celebrate. If you’ve noticed your social media flooded with #NationalHummusDay tags, that’s because today, May 13, 2017, is the big day. And what better way to celebrate then with these Hummus Empanadas, which I am calling “Humpanadas”.

There’s snow outside my house right now and that means two things. 1) I’m officially in summer withdrawal and, 2) I miss enjoying fresh produce from my local farm market. In the winters I pretend I’m on a warm tropical island by enjoying frosty, fruity smoothies. Blueberries are the NJ state fruit, but I won’t be seeing a fresh Jersey berry till July. Which is why I’m so excited to have discovered frozen Wild Blueberries! Continue reading “Wild Blueberry Muffin Smoothie”

Today we’re talking about one of the most misunderstood vegetables at the market. The one everyone associates as a “bad” food. The guy everyone shames in favor of their supposedly superior orange cousin. That’s right – today I’m going to be setting the record straight on the POTATO.

The other day I posted a Super Bowl Round-up of snack swaps, and while those salty, spicy, and savory tastebuds were satisfied, sweet was definitely lacking. As someone with a sweet tooth, I felt this area needs to be fairly represented at any event. And therein lies the inspiration for my latest recipe: Apple Chip Nachos with Peanut Butter Caramel Sauce. Continue reading “Apple Chip Nachos with Peanut Butter Caramel Sauce”
Mr. E and I are avid beachgoers, which is one of the reasons we chose to live within walking distance to the beach. And while our boardwalk offers some food options, most are either fried or high fat foods. Not to mention the long lines and cost – almost $4 for a slice of pizza is insane! Don’t let the hard work you did all winter be compromised by the foods you eat while wearing your bathing suit. It’s time to invest and a cooler and pack it with beach-friendly treats!

The word on social media is that today is #PumpkinDay. So what better way to celebrate than by sharing a quick and healthy snack to enjoy from those pumpkins- their seeds! Continue reading “Plant the Seeds for Healthy Snacking”
