Monday is Memorial Day and, while we honor this day of remembrance, we know that across the U.S., it has become common to hold backyard barbecues. Usually, these types of events could be considered danger zones for those of us watching what we eat. Continue reading
We’ve heard a lot of talk in the health food world about beet greens lately; some even claim that they could become the new kale. While we’re skeptical of that (we love our kale!), we’re always looking for new ways diversify when it comes to ingredients. We decided to try them out and see what all the fuss it about.

We love a quick-and-easy breakfast fix as much as the next busy bee, but sometimes, we don’t mind sacrificing a little time for the sake of a pretty meal. Smoothie bowls instantly became our favorite way to combine our love of healthy food with our urge to be creative. The absolute best part about smoothie bowls: the possibilities are endless. The flavor combinations could include any mixture of veggies and fruits your heart desires, as well as all the toppings you can imagine. Continue reading
We’ve been researching this year’s healthy food trends a lot lately (because these things are fun for us). So, in our Internet travels, we came across mentions of an ancient grain that is said to be making a comeback, and we knew we had found the perfect choice for our first ever Grain of the Month.

Created by Primal Kitchen, the Paleo-friendly condiment is—get ready for this—gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, soy and canola free, non GMO, and uses cage-free eggs. Not to mention, it’s made with all real food: avocado oil, organic cage-free eggs, organic egg yolks, organic vinegar (from non-GMO beets), sea salt, and rosemary extract. Sounds like a dream come true for us health nuts, right? Continue reading
While we love the convenience of just running to the store and picking up a carton of milk, if there’s a way we can make it, we prefer to do it ourselves. That way, we know exactly what’s going into our food (and drinks!)–no ingredients that we don’t approve, all chosen by us. It was for this reason that we decided to try our hand at some homemade almond milk. With just four ingredients, this almond milk turned out to be some of the best we’ve ever had. Continue reading
We love snacks. We’re always on the lookout for ones with the most bang for our buck (filling, tasty, and low WW points!). While these aren’t the most filling (they are just pieces of kale after all), they fulfill our salty-chip craving without all the points–or junk food. Read on to learn how to make your own.

Everyone in my family has different eating habits. My mom and I eat only chicken and fish, while the rest of our family eat pretty much everything. My aunt and mom usually split the cooking duties for the bigger family gatherings. Continue reading
When we thought about the best way to introduce ourselves and this blog, the first thing that came to mind was a meal. Delicious, healthy recipes. Beautiful pictures. A nice, hot and sunny L.A. Saturday with our boyfriends. This is us.
