Nice Cream Sandwiches

I have the easiest treat for you guys to try as the summer winds down! Recently, my brain pulled a memory out of thin air and I recalled my grandmother making guilt-free “ice cream” sandwiches years ago. All she did was put Cool Whip in between chocolate graham crackers and then freeze the sandwiches for a few […]

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

Yes, you read that right. I tried coming up with an annoying avocado pun to title this post, but I decided that putting chocolate and avocado in the same sentence was attention-grabbing enough.  I love avocados, but they sure don’t make it easy. You wait and wait for them to ripen while you salivate whenever you see them […]

From Chunky Monkey to Fit Chimp

As much as I try to acquire a taste for yogurt, it hasn’t seemed to happen yet. It’s such a convenient and healthy snack, but something about the taste and the consistency just doesn’t work for me. I love frozen yogurt, of course – anything with unnecessary sugar added to it usually agrees with my […]

Don’t Kale My Vibe

If you’ve seen my Instagram lately, you probably noticed a picture of a brownie with green flecks inside. Maybe I’m too innocent for my own good, because it took me a while to process some of the comments I received, like “are you sure that’s kale??” I promise they were NOT weed brownies. But next […]

Guilt-Free Goodies

Moving back home to the suburbs of Massachusetts has given me quite a bit of free time. In less than seven months I’ve gone from a full-time college student and sorority sister to a part-time worker with zero social life. Sure, you’re probably thinking I could spend that time searching for a full-time job…but that’s a discussion […]
