Fruit and Yogurt

5 Apr


How can you not love fruit and yogurt? It’s the perfect meal. I decided to live on the edge and have something else besides a hummus wrap for lunch. We have a couple of containers of Brown Cow Vanilla Yogurt (the BEST yogurt in the world) and thought this would be perfect. This was also a great post-run recovery meal, which I felt like I earned it since I shaved a whole minute off my mile!

3/4 cup Brown Cow Vanilla Yogurt
4 strawberries, quartered
1 handful of blueberries
1 handful of blackberries
1 small handful of sliced almonds

Cheeseless Chocolate Cheesecake

27 Mar


I actually made this cake as part of our Valentine’s Day dinner. When I saw the picture on Facebook, I knew that it would be the perfect way to end the evening. While I can only take credit for the homemade whipped cream, I highly recommend that you try the cake. It was amazing. Not super sweet and not overly chocolatey, just perfect.

You can find the recipe at Paleo Parents

Homemade Whip Cream
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp confectioner’s sugar


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or with a hand mixer, combine the cream, sugar and vanilla.
  2. Begin slowly mixing and gradually turn the mixer to medium and mix until the cream has thickened to form a peak on the end of the whisk. Be careful not to overmix or you will wind up with really sweet butter!

As always, enjoy!
