Chocolate + Cherry + Almond Butter Apple Rings

Apple season is here, once again. Hip, hip hooray! I LOVE apples and have a tendency to over purchase, so I am always looking for creative ways to enjoy them. These apple rings are my new favorite breakfast/snack/dessert. They are sweet, salty, packed with healthy fats, protein and antioxidants!

The Hemp Hearts are such an awesome addition because just 1 serving (3 tablespoons) contains 10 grams of plant based protein/10 grams of omega fatty acids. Plus, they taste delicious and add a little extra crunch. If serving to kiddos, I promise they won’t even notice their slightly nutty flavor.

10 Healthy + Satisfying Snacks For Football Season

I have a confession to make: I know absolutely NOTHING about sports. While most people plan their Sunday’s around football games and tailgating parties, I’m over here reading a good book/blogging/cuddling my dog/napping. My husband on the other hand, is a football freak (sorry dear, it’s true). In theory, I love football season. The air gets that familiar chill, pumpkin comes back in style, and the leaves start to fall = perfection.

Although I can’t talk football, I sure can make some damn good snacks! Unfortunately, typical football food is total crap (think anything with Velveeta “cheese”). Who wants to start their monday morning with a food hangover? No thanks! These healthy snack ideas will satisfy all football fans, and everyone will still wake up feeling great (presuming too much beer was not consumed).

Creamy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie {Vegan}

Nobody is more ready for fall than this girl right here!  I can’t even begin to convey the excitement that crisp weather and pumpkin spiced everything brings to me.  The only downside is that autumn treats typically come with a ton of added sugar, calories and fat.  Until now…

Creamy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie {Vegan}

This creamy smoothie is like chilled pumpkin pie in a glass–super bonus it’s Vegan + Healthy too (packed with Vitamin A, potassium and fiber)!  The recipe makes 4 cups so share with someone you love or store for up to 24 hours. Enjoy! Continue reading

Energy Worth Spreading

The theme of this week’s “energy worth spreading” is TEAMWORK! It was a little under a year ago that we decided to join forces in an attempt to spread happiness/peace/love/wellness tips/inspiration, aka ENERGY WE BRING!

It has been a fantastic journey thus far, and we are so grateful for all of your support. Since we started on this adventure, we have learned so much! Most importantly, we have enjoyed connecting with all of you AND getting to know ourselves and our life purpose a little bit better…

We believe in:

  • Empowering others to reach their highest potential (physically, mentally & spiritually)
  • Speaking the truth and living our dreams
  • Taking care of our bodies and our planet
  • Collaborating to bring light
  • Having a little fun along the way

Teamwork

In honor of the upcoming blogiversary (Jan 1), we decided that it was time for a mini makeover. We want to shout out the beautiful and talented ladies at Amy Clark Studios, in addition to Lucky’s Market in Columbus, Ohio, for allowing us to have such beautiful photos. In addition to a fresh look, you will soon find a few new user-friendly features on the blog!

The Ultimate Music Playlist For Meditation & Relaxation

I am a firm believer in the power of music. Many moons ago, I was a psych major in college (GO BUCKS), where I learned all about the human senses and how they are directly correlated to emotion. Have you ever noticed how a song can take you right back to a particular time in your life, or evoke a certain feeling? It’s crazy, right?!

I truly believe that music can set the right mood for all sorts of spiritual activities. The following playlist is my absolute go-to compilation for mediation, yoga, bath-time, relaxation, reading, you name it. It calms the senses and awakens the spirit! No matter what kind of a day I’ve had, these songs set me straight. Enjoy!

1. Enya – Shepherd Moons

2. Portishead and Massive Attack – Teardrop

3. Coldplay – Magic Continue reading
