    Peppermint Pattie Coconut Butter Cups

    I took a poll on my Instagram stories the other day asking if you guys would rather this recipe or a recipe for orange cream coconut butter cups first… can you guess what the winner was?!? Don’t worry, the others will be coming soon!!

    Peanutbutter chocolate chip cookie truffles

    Before I was a ~health nut~ I used to bring Oreo cookie truffles to every fam get together, and they were always a HIT. Everyone loved em, buuuuut… they were far from healthy. Although I can’t even eat these right now because of SIBO, I still wanted to try and recreate an old fav in a healthier way. My 13 year old nephew – who usually won’t even touch my creations – gave these a 10/10 and said they were amazing. SO I’m taking his word for it 😉 Try these Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie truffles and see fo yoself!! They’re grain free, gluten free, and can be made vegan/dairy free…

    A Guide To Giving

    It’s Christmas time, betches. AKA the best time of the year (except maybe it would be better if I lived in California and it wasn’t so cold) anyways… gift giving is one of my favorite things. I hate spending money on myself. Refuse. I’m the type of person that walks around a store filling my cart with everything I want and *think* that I’m going to buy. Then.. when it comes time to check out.. I put everything back and leave empty handed – happens literally every time I’m at Target. Like I said.. I love giving gifts. BUT, I like the gifts to be more thoughtful. I usually like to give things that are creative…

    If you’re going through hell…

    The oh-so-wise Winston Churchill once said, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” Well THX for the advice, Winston, but it ain’t that simple. Lately I’ve been in a funk. A big one. One that feels like it may never leave. I’ve been waking up sad and depressed everyday. I’ve had no motivation for anything. I don’t want to eat. I don’t want to go to the gym. I don’t want to post on Instagram. I don’t want to see anyone. I don’t want to go to class or do my homework… and the list just goes on and on. I don’t have interest in things that once brought me…

    Single serve apple crisp

    Fav fall dessert? APPLE CRISP. BY FAR. 2000%. NO QUESTION BOUT IT. I’m not sure what it is about apple crisp – but it’s like the most comforting cozy lil dessert ever and I just freaking love it. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the first dessert I really let myself eat even during the depths of my eating disorder (well actually it was apple pie but to me… they are one in the same). The night before I was going into my second long term hospital stay I all of a sudden got a HUGE craving for apple pie/crisp. I called my Mom into my room and told her…
