The first time I heard the word ‘hangry’ (hungry angry) it totally resonated with me. Why? Because this girl can get seriously hangry if she allows herself to. Imagine me back in my early Graves Disease days, when no amount of food could satisfy my hunger! Hangry city! Luckily, hangriness is not something I experience anymore, because when it comes to healthy food, I am always prepared. And my breakfast game is THE BEST! I’ve learned how to make breakfast work for my busy schedule – and you should too. Which is why you seriously need to try this delicious blueberry overnight oats recipe. It practically makes itself! Check it out!
I’m a giant health food nerd. I’m sure that that’s obvious at this point – but I get pretty freaking excited when I discover new veggies to try. I’ve been aching to try purple sweet potatoes and when I FINALLY stumbled upon them at the Cultural Market I snatched those babies up like they were precious gems. But this was a two for one win, because they also had white sweet potatoes… I was in foodie nerd heaven! The first thing I wanted to make? Colourful sweet potatoe fries!
Have you ever had a craving that just won’t let go? A need to find a way to create something delicious that you’ve been dreaming of? That was me for the longest time… dreaming of gluten free waffles.
I’ve been drooling over pictures of homemade waffles on Instagram for ages! It has been eons since I enjoyed a waffle breakfast. They kind of went to the wayside when I had to go gluten free. Many of the gluten free waffles out there either made my stomach sad or didn’t meet my ingredient standards. Still, I had hope that I would one day create a plate full of healthy, delicious waffles.
So I finally invested in a waffle maker and went to work! And I just love what we came up with…
The weather has been so kind to us lately in my neck of the woods… I’ve had the AMAZING opportunity to unzip my jacket during my walks (it’s the little things in life) and I have been loving it! We are expecting another cold snap, and I’m certain that a snowstorm or two will find us, but all this warmth has left me with a craving for warmer weather. And while I can’t make the seasons change any faster, I can certainly pretend with a tropically themed pineapple smoothie! I’m sipping this on a beach in my imagination… care to join me?
Exciting news! I bought a donut pan! Seriously… if you don’t have one, I highly encourage you to go get one. Go pick one up right now if you can. I’ll wait…
I have no idea what I’ve been waiting for. It turns out that donuts are pretty easy to throw together. It took me a couple of tries, but I came up with a donut recipe I may be a little obsessed with (healthy donuts 3 times this week isn’t a bad thing, right?) Super bonus? They cook in 10 minutes! Say what?! This is seriously an exciting development in the Health-Esteemie House. I can’t wait until you try them.
