Spirulina Energy Bites
I’m a big fan of energy bites, spirulina, and dates. So these are basically all of my favorite things in one! If you’re ever looking for easy snacks to make in advance - these are your new friend! Especially if you have just a little bit of a sweet tooth but don’t want so consume any refined sugars. These little guys may be addicting, but they are filling, easy, and nutritious!
Spirulina Energy Bites
Makes 24 Energy Bites
1 cup pitted dates (about 15 dates)
1/2 cup almonds
2T almond butter
3/4 cup oats
2tsp spirulina (I use Earthrise)
Place all ingredients into a food processor and process on high until well combined and a dough mixture has formed. It may take several minutes. Once done, it should be a thick dough that sticks together.
Using your hands, roll dough into small bite-sized energy bites.
Store in the freezer for 2-3 months or in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. I typically store mine in a large freezer-safe ziplock bag in the freezer and take them out as needed.
Blue pie, sounds fun, right? I thought so. We made this raw dessert at my last Spring workshop and it was definitely a crowd favorite! Made with Blue Majik, a blue-green algae known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties, it’s good for you too :)
Sometimes, the simplest of meals are often the best. These tacos were created when I started working with the Oklahoma City Fire Department, as I wanted to teach an easy recipe that was filling for the times when firefighters get busy and have to eat to sustain their energy for an entire day
I always post pictures of meals like the chickpea and dill tacos, summer detox salads, or lentil sloppy joes - yet 9/10 times I am sitting behind a computer screen eating the most simple salad ever. I figured it was time to share one of my daily rituals with you - as this salad is the easiest of the easy, and it’s my go-to when I am in a hurry or just not in the mood to cook.
We all love tacos, or at least I love tacos. These summer tacos changed my eating habits for 3 weeks straight. I still can’t get enough. If you love dill - these tacos are for you. I taught this recipe at my most recent Eat to Live workshop, and now I am sharing the recipe because it’s just too good not to, and I believe we all deserve to love these summer tacos as much as I do.
This salad is one of my all time favorites - especially in the summer when I want something light and refreshing. It was created by my cousin who’s an esthetician [the absolute best] and I think in her words this salad is “skin food!” If you’re ever having one of those days where you’re just feeling kind of “blah,” this salad will be your new best friend.
Salads are kind of my thing. I love all kinds of salads, and I normally go overboard with them, but sometimes simplicity is just SO NICE. This salad is just that. It’s simple to make but doesn’t lack in flavor. It’s the perfect salad to pair with a main entree or to load up on for a healthy lunch.
Here’s the deal. I love mayonnaise. And when I say I love it, that’s kind of an understatement. When I was a kid I would eat mayo on slices of cheese like it was being taken away from me a moment later. Also, don’t ask me if I liked mayonnaise or miracle whip better - because I’ll tell you both.
I set out to make traditional tabbouleh, but somewhere along the way I got bored and decided to spice it up and make my own version of tabbouleh. So, here it is!
The addition of black lentils makes this salad more filling than you would expect, and the nutty taste of tahini is sure to impress. Give this one a try and let me know what you think :)

These crispy spirulina bites are the perfect snack! They are packed with nutrition, but they also feed the need for something sweet and something crunchy. They make a great snack on planes, road trips, or even just a long day of work.
I walked into one of my favorite raw food cafes and saw a “Spirulina Grapefruit” smoothie on the menu. I was intrigued. It sounded disgusting to be honest, but they said it was their house favorite - so I had to at least try it. Much to my surprise, I LOVED IT. So much so that I came home and started experimenting with recipes.
