I don't know about you, but I'm all about green right now!

Spring is on its way in and the trees will shed their brown leaves for fresh green ones, the BF and I are starting to plan our garden, salads are starting to sound more appetizing and St. Patrick's Day is almost here!

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day and the arrival of spring, I recreated a Shamrock Shake! But, this version is super super healthy. When I was browsing recipes online, I noticed that a lot of at-home lower calorie versions contain fat-free or low-fat ingredients and food coloring.

My version is made with REAL food. And it's still incredibly delicious. 

Before we get to the recipe, here's what you need to know about McDonald's Shamrock Shake...

Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Ice Cream

Incredibly rich and peanut buttery, your tastebuds won't believe that this ice cream is dairy-free, sugar-free and made with just a few ingredients.

Ice cream is definitely my favorite warm weather treat. But as much as I love Ben & Jerry, they are no help in reaching summer weight loss goals. 

I made this vegan ice cream using frozen bananas as the base - no dairy necessary.

I've made vegan ice cream using bananas before, but I never added in any extra ingredients. The result was a very banana-y ice cream. I love bananas but, let's be real, it didn't really taste like ice cream. 

This version tastes so good, I made it three days in a row!

What Supplements Should You Be Taking?

Supplement-Guide.jpg#asset:6375:medium

*The following are my suggestions based off my education and experience as a health coach and my personal experiences. You should always consult a medical professional before taking a new supplement. A functional medicine doctor can create a supplement program for your unique needs. 

There are so many supplements on the market that choosing what's right for you can be confusing. 

I believe that we're all different and our bodies thrive on different things - one person's food is another person's poison. You may have to experiment a bit with your supplement routine, and your supplement routine may change over time as you age. 

But finding supplements that work for you doesn't have to be hard. Here's my guide to buying the best supplements...

Energy balls are so easy to make, and they're the perfect snack. They're also a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth!

I made these energy balls for the yogis in my yoga teacher training. Eating one or two energy balls was a great pick-me-up in between yoga classes and learning about yoga.

I've made a lot of energy balls, but this recipe is definitely the most cookie dough-like. Who doesn't love eating raw cookie dough?

Adding zucchini to sweet muffins is a delicious and easy way to get in your veggies! 

Vanilla-Protein-Zucchini-Muffins.png#ass

Our garden is bursting with one giant zucchini after the other right now. I'll check the garden one day and leave a zucchini to grow a bit more, and the next day it's a monster. 

I've been trying to add zucchini to more of our meals, and I've made vegan zucchini meatballs, grilled zucchini, zucchini noodles and more! 

I needed a break from savory zucchini dishes, so I made these muffins.
