Breakfast Bars {Quinoa + Chia + Cranberry + PB}

Mornings that begin with smoothies are on the decline here in Pennsylvania as it is frightfully cold. It’s really not all that bad. I’m still in an adjustment phase and by late December I’ll hardly whine at all. My go-to breakfast in the depths of winter is a toss up between steel-cut oatmeal or sleeping in the middle of my bed under several comforters with my cat huddled next to me for added warmth. If you want to go the oatmeal route I’ve got a post for that. If you want to go the amorphous bed blob route you’re on your own, but I suspect you can figure it out. For these moderately chilly mornings where I can still get out of bed with relative ease, I wanted something more portable, but still nutritionally substantial – enter the quinoa breakfast bar.

Banana “Ice Cream”

When it comes to chips, cookies or fried foods, I really don’t have much trouble passing them up. But, one unhealthy treat that I have a borderline unhealthy relationship with is ice cream. No matter the weather or time of day, I can always go for a scoop (or two) of ice cream, which is why this recipe is an absolute staple for me.

Big ol’ bowl of coleslaw.

I love coleslaw – tangy and sweet, it’s my favorite summertime side dish. Because I like it so much, I make my own so I can control the ingredients and make it a little healthier.

World’s easiest latte

I love my morning coffee. And, I love summer. But, sadly – the two cannot co-exist. The newly warm-ish weather strongly deters me from sipping on a piping hot mug for 45 minutes. That’s where the world’s easiest latte comes in.

First, pour a cup of milk into a glass jar. (I use 1%.)
