Eating Clean: Recipe Links

25 Jul

Eating clean can seem daunting, especially if you’re not equipped with a ton of recipes to get started. Also, falling victim to things that come in boxes is all too easy when you’re running out of time.  So, here are some yummy clean recipes to get you back on the right track. They not only taste good, but they look good too (who said healthy food had to be bland in any form or fashion)! And for more ideas on clean eating, follow my Pinterest board So Fresh & So Clean!

Have A Great Weekend!

Hello friends! What are your plans for this lovely weekend? This is the first weekend in 4 months that I don’t have homework! The semester finished on Wednesday – My professor skimmed over my research paper and told me I got an A in the class, so needless to say I’m feeling pretty weightless at the moment. PLUS, I’m really excited to be taking pictures tomorrow at CrossFit Redondo for their CrossFit for Hope fundraiser. I’ll post them next week. Anyway, have a great weekend and here are some posts from around the web . . . . . . .

Chocolate Paleo Snack Cake

2 Feb


{Recipe from: Paleo Spirit}

Paleo Chocolate Snack Cake:

10 medjool dates, pitted
. 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
(or one ripe banana)
. 3 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut flower
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
powder (Found at Sprouts Market)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine celtic sea salt
1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee

1. Place the medjool dates in a food processor and pulse until completely pureed.
(I found pitting them first, putting the dates in the microwave for 30 seconds,
and then putting in the food processor was the easiest way to puree them)

2. Add applesauce (or banana) and continue to pulse until pureed and combine
with dates.

3. Add the fruit puree to the bowl of a stand mixer (or just use a handmixer), add
the eggs, vanilla, coconut oil and coffee and mix on low-medium speed until well combined.

4. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. (We add a little extra coconut
for fluffiness)

5. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix on low-speed,
scraping down the sides, until you have a smooth batter.

6. Grease an 8×8 glass/aluminum pan with coconut oil, pour in the batter and
smooth it with the back of a spatula (or pastry spatula)

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle
comes out clean.

***Note: For extra sweetness, add a small amount
of honey, however, this makes it not paleo.
