Healthy Homemade Granola

fullsizeoutput_1a02fullsizeoutput_1a05

Greetings from my new KING size Yogabed.  That’s right, Bryan finally budged (after months of me whining) and got us a king size bed.  It was our wedding gift for each other.  And I must say, after just one night of sleeping on it, I’m in heaven!

Speaking of heaven, I have another Homemade Granola recipe for y’all to try.  Yes, it’s very similar to my original recipe, but I did some tweaking and I like this one even better!  This homemade granola could run circles around any store-bought brand.  It’s also healthier. Duh.  Oh, and let’s not forget versatile.  You can play around with the mix-ins and spices to get just the flavor you want!  It’s hard to beat homemade granola.  Don’t you agree?

Wedding Pictures & PB Smoothie.

Hi y’all!  I’m back! Did you miss me?

I missed you…

It’s good to be back.

Bryan and I had a wonderful wedding weekend and every day since the wedding I’m finding myself more and more grateful for how lucky I am – I found a wonderful man to spend my life with, my family and best friends were there to witness me marry him, and we had such a good time.  It doesn’t get much better than that!

Raspberry & Almond Butter Smoothie.

Can a breakfast smoothie keep you full until lunch? Yes, a smoothie can be filling as well as wholesome, and this Raspberry Almond Butter Smoothie proves it.

Toast with any kind of nut butter and jam is one of my favorite go-to breakfast options, but sometimes I want something new.  What better way to change things up than by throwing the tart and creamy combination into a blender?  Throw in some healthy add-ins and you have yourself a powerful and healthy breakfast.

Yesterday I made Homemade Pumpkin and Oatmeal Dog Treats for the pups…

Don’t they look excited?  They loved them! 

The recipe I used made a huge batch of treats and I didn’t want to make that many because I have little pups, so I only made half, leaving me with a lot of leftover pumpkin.

Pineapple Smoothie Bowl.

Hola!  We are back from Costa Rica and I hope y’all haven’t forgotten about me because I haven’t forgotten about you!  In fact, I thought about you a lot during my time in Central America – when I was eating incredible food and when I was hiking through the cloud forest, I thought about how much I couldn’t wait to share my experiences with y’all! So, on that note, it’s good to be back. 🙂  I can’t wait to share some of our pictures – which I promise to soon!

But first, I want to share with you some wonderful news…

Drum roll please…

Fruity Nutty Smoothie.

I had to go to the dentist this past Thursday. 😦 No, it wasn’t just a regular cleaning/check-up – that happened a few weeks ago.  This appointment was to “fix” a tooth.  My dentist wasn’t quite sure what was going on with it.  He said it was either partially fractured or I had a nasty cavity.  In this situation neither outcome is ideal, but if I had pick, I was hoping for the cavity.
