Hey guys, guess what I have a brand new recipe for you. I swear, lately, my blog has been slowly transitioning into a food blog because I’ve been sharing so many yummy recipes. I was recently contacted by GoAvo to work with them on a collaboration, where I had to create a dish using one of GoAvo’s avocado spreads. At first I was so nervous about this collaboration because honestly, I’m not a chef and when I cook I literally throw ingredients together and somehow it manages to taste good. Also, I have to confess that some days I just hate cooking and the thought of being in the kitchen just makes me want to scream lol. But after thinking it over I snatched my non-existent weave, (LOL) gave myself a little pep talk and I realized that this would be a fun, creative and yummy experience. So please enjoy my tilapia mango salsa salad with a ranch avocado dip and chips on the side. Happy Eating and I hope you love this dish as much as I do. View Post
Hey guys, so last week I found out from Angela Lanter’s Snapchat that March is National Nutrition Month, so this week I’m sharing my Roasted Salmon recipe. Roasted salmon is one of my all time favorite recipes to prepare and eat. I just love everything about it. With Spring approaching, (YAY to the 60°weather this week in the New York area) I really want to commit to eating healthier options for the well-being of my body because I have a summer wedding coming up, I want to look and feel great. Check out the roasted salmon recipe below and, if you love Salmon as much as I do I would love to hear your how you prepare it. I’m always on the hunt for new ways to cook Salmon. Enjoy xx ♥ View Post
This morning while browsing Tumblr I tumbled across this amazing little breakfast recipe/idea. I am lover of smoothies especially green smoothies and when I found this recipe this morning I was o man I just have to try this recipe. It’s looks so yummy and o so healthy too minus the peanut butter (don’t like it). I love sharing my recipe finds with you guys and thought this one would be perfect for me to try and also all you guys out there. Check out the recipe after the jump and hope you guys try it.
1 cup almond milk
2 cups organic spinach
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Put into your high speed blender the almond milk and spinach and blend well. Then add in the remaining ingredients and blend well until completely blended smooth.
It’s so creamy delicious. I love using spinach because it blends so well, you will hardly notice you have 2 cups of spinach in your smoothie.
Top it off with your favorite toppings such as hemp seeds, raw cacao nibs, granola or your favorite berries.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I love trying out recipes all the time and last night I decided to cook Creamy Pasta because I was so just so hungry and didn’t feel like ordering food or even going out to buy food. I found this little gem of a recipe on an amazing Chefs website called “Divas Can Cook”. When I’m in the mood too cook (which is not often) I love making pasta dishes or curry and last night was a pasta night since I already had curry earlier in the week. Since I tried this recipe multiple times I didn’t really have to consult with the original recipe for guidelines because it’s a really easy, fast and simple dish to cook. I think it is a perfect dish for like young people and people who are constantly on the go single or married. I just love making creamy pasta and that’s why I picked today to share with you one of my favorite dishes from Divas Can Cook.
