I have been craving simpler foods lately, and lots of veggies. Maybe it is the onset of warmer weather which makes me want warm, heavy, comfort foods less ... or maybe it is seeing everyone's Whole30 photos on Instagram. Or, maybe it is what feels like an overload of sweets - after basically eliminating sugar from our lives completely, we had quite a bit of sweets on and around Raffa's birthday.
Whatever the reason, fresh, simple foods are sounding the best and the first two recipes here are right up that alley.
I just bought this spiralizer so that I could make zucchini noodles. And add a creamy avocado sauce, yes please!
Now, I may have eliminated sugar from my life but I still like to satisfy my "sweet tooth". I have been doing so with homemade goodies or simple desserts like yogurt and fresh fruit. I made these cookies yesterday, and they are delicious! They are easy and I feel much better about feeding them to John, Raffa, and myself because they are simply almond butter, coconut sugar, an egg, baking soda, cocoa powder and chocolate chips. They taste like the chocolatey-ish brownie ever, though.
After snow this past week, this weekend is supposed to be gorgeous weather. I am so excited to spend some time outside going on walks, going to the park, and going to a BBQ. Have a great weekend!
