Guilt-Free Mug Cake!

IMG_0802

There is something deliciously satisfying about warm cake & cool ice cream, right? Talk about a childhood weakness (Costco cakes, to be specific!) I’ve found a 100% guilt-free and Vegan friendly ‘dessert’ that’s been my night time staple! The best part of it all, I am sneaking in superfoods and probiotics that taste like a milkshake! #WINNING

Recipe (Serves 1):

Vegan Vanilla ‘Ice-cream’:

1 cup Vanilla Shakeology

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 tsp guar-gum to thicken

1 small frozen banana

1 cup ice + blend

1 tbsp sprinkles (optional, but you’re not living if you don’t!) 😉

Chocolate Mug Cake:

1/4 cup Vegan Chocolate Shakeology 

3 tbsp organic coconut flour

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp peanut flour

Mix wet & dry ingredients together in ramekin + microwave for 45-60 seconds until fluffy!

I can’t go to bed without dessert, even if it’s a piece of dark chocolate! I truly believe in moderation, not deprivation for sustainable weight loss and healthy lifestyle. It’s possible, just make healthy alternatives when you can! 🙂

Do you make room for a night-time ‘healthy dessert?” What’s your favorite late night treat?

Vegan Scramble!

18581965_1715397642094063_253888017772043116_n

My favorite meal of the day is Sunday breakfast! I love sweet and savory combos like scrambled ‘egg’s, fresh berries and cinnamon raisin toast! So much protein and bursts of flavor. Tofu scramble is my new staple on weekends and I love coconut oil spray to ‘butter’ toast for a healthy & calorie free alternative! I was inspired by Whole Foods tofu scramble and wanted to recreate a cost efficient version that I could *whisk* up at home on a lazy Sunday morning.

Recipe:

  • 6oz Extra Firm Organic Non-GMO Tofu
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • Scant pink Himalayan salt
  • Scant coarse black pepper
  • 1 tsp hot sauce of choice
  • 1/2 cup sautéed zucchini and yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

Directions: 

  1. Pre-heat skillet to medium heat
  2. 2 tbsp water in skillet to steam veggies
  3. Cut 1/2 cup zucchini and yellow onion, place in skillet to steam and brown
  4. Crumble tofu in hands and place into skillet
  5. Allow tofu to lightly crisp along with veggies
  6. Sprinkle over dry spices, move turmeric powder evenly until all tofu is slight yellow
  7. Scant in hot sauce and salt to taste
  8. Scant nutritional yeast on top for ‘cheesy’ flavor
  9. Serve hot and enjoy!

Have you tasted tofu scramble? What were your thoughts and would you try this plant based ‘egg’ recipe?

Yoga Flow

IMG_0299

Am I the only person who scrolls at insanely inspirational yogi’s, who twist and bend like pretzels wondering why I can’t get past downward dog? I can’t be the only one! I easily get in the comparison trap when it comes to aspiring to be a yoga Queen, it’s simply not my natural calling. I do firmly believe in the benefits of yoga because stretching + strength is incredible for recovery and building muscle.

You don’t have to fit into a square box when it comes to expressing your yoga flow. Moving your body in an intentional way is still movement! I still want to incorporate yoga into my daily fitness because it’s healing for the mind, body, and spirit. My current yoga program is helping me learn the yoga basics while still keeping me challenged! The last thing I want to do is sit on a mat for 40 minutes and not break a sweat. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

I applaud those fierce yogis who can do handstands and make you feel like your zen on a beach somewhere exotic. If you are looking to ease your way into a yoga journey but need a little help, I’ve got you covered! I recently discovered a 3 Week Yoga Retreat that’s virtual so I can do it in the comfort of my own home. I kinda feel like a newbie yoga ninja! Being in my own space and solitude, I don’t feel pressure from more advanced yoga eyes. Sometimes studios can be intimidating, not to mention expensive! Girl – I am not down for $25 per drop in session…that’s gel a pedicure!

If your curious about yoga but you don’t always feel like it’s mean’t for you, maybe try my virtual program to slowly but surely help you build confidence like it’s doing for me.  Seriously tho, It’s helping me embrace my flexibility and every session I get excited to measure my progress! I think this is the perfect program for vacations, weekends and travel because you can find your peace anywhere you want! Yoga on your schedule, anywhere and anytime! Yassss.

I am a little too excited about the new poses I am learning for some fun Instagram shots now that I can do more than sit in child’s pose! LOL!

What is your favorite way to do yoga? Music? Lights? Hot yoga? Community yoga? Please share!

Fat Burning Workout!

I have always been a strong believer in cardiovascular activity for optimal health. It’s important to stay active and be mindful of your daily movement, especially if you have a sedentary job or don’t get to move a lot during your regular day. Time is money and I don’t think any of us enjoy laboring over a machine for 30 minutes. There are more effective ways to burn fat, challenge your heart and stay active in less than 15 minutes a 2-3x per week, with the same benefits of low intensity cardio for a longer duration! Click the image below to see my current High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and healthy food over the weekend! slide1-1

What is your favorite form of cardio?

Healthy Dinner Recipe!

During the work week the last thing I want to do is come home and make a laborious dinner. I’ve gotten into the routine of a healthy and volume packed dinner that is cheap and filling! You can change the flavor with different spices or sauces. The best part of all, it’s VEGAN! There is naturally over 20 grams of plant based protein in this meal. Please click the image below to watch recipe in 90 seconds!
