Coconut Lime Cupcakes {Grain-Free} | DailyBitesBlog.com

A huge predicament parked itself in my kitchen last week as I was getting set to prepare an Easter treat for you.

There will be none of that for this kale-munching water drinker. Instead, I’ve rounded up 12 of my favorite naturally green—and therefore nutrient packed—recipes […]

Chocolate Cherry Chia Power Treats (Daily Bites)

Right after New Year’s, I walked into Walgreens and saw them already working on the Valentine’s Day candy display. It was an explosion of pink and red packages. You know the kind. Bright heart-shaped boxes wrapped in cellophane and piled high next to the “Squeeze Me! Teddy Bears.” I was there again last week and […]

Two-Bite Gingerbread Cupcakes with Pink Cashew Frosting (Daily Bites)

It’s Christmas week! We made it! I don’t know what’s brought you up to this point in the month. Maybe you’ve had a few down days or a few slip-ups with your eating plan. Don’t stress about it. We all have those days and those slip-ups, because we’re humans and it’s what we do! But […]

I don’t have any new cookie recipes for you guys today. No lose-5-pounds-fast tips to help you fit into your New Year’s Eve dress in a few weeks. (Although if you want to do that, you probably shouldn’t be looking for cookie recipes right now.) No amazing dairy-free eggnog recipes or advice for setting New […]

Roasted Squash Salad with Pomegranate & Hemp Seeds

I’ve been having way too much fun with pomegranates lately. They are such a seasonal delicacy. I wait all year to enjoy them only in the month of December when I’m making festive holiday recipes. Foods that are naturally bright and colorful with deep red or purple pigments are often the highest in antioxidants. Pomegranates […]
