chocolate chip macadamia nut oatmeal cookies

By | June 16th, 2017|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

COOKIES! Who doesn't love a good cookie? Especially when it's got ooey gooey chocolate chips and the goddess of all nuts - the macadamia. These cookies started from a deep craving for my mom's beloved oatmeal cookies. She has a recipe that's likely older than I am saved in her recipe rolodex that's tattered, worn, and [...]

chocolate chunk almond cookies

By | January 12th, 2016|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

The chocolate chip cookie. A favorite of kiddo and adult alike. The cookie that when baked from scratch can solve most any problem. From the baking to the eating, the experience is like none other. Which is why I've come up with this super simple chocolate chip cookie recipe. Gluten is simply off the table [...]

By | May 1st, 2015|CrossFit, Health, Nutrition, The Mind|

Wow! What a weekend. I met some amazing new friends, caught up with old friends, ate some spectacular food, learned a lot, and played to my heart's content. The photo below (taken by the talented Paleo Fat Kid) pretty much sums up my feelings about the weekend. Paleof(x) was a spectacular weekend, and now that [...]

egg-free, nut-free cocoa fudge brownies and the power of movement

By | March 20th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Autoimmune Paleo, CrossFit, Health, Movement Tips, Recipes|

Brownies, oh brownies, how I love brownies. You know what else I love (something that I haven't written much about recently, but practice every single day)? CrossFit and movement in general, really. Nutrition is the basis of health, yes, but movement, well that's what makes us human. It's something we all share a need for, [...]

cocoa nut butter zucchini muffins

By | February 5th, 2015|Breakfast, Recipes|

MY husband and I have gotten really good at a once a week shopping trip to farmers market that lasts us the whole week. Usually, Friday and Saturday turn out some pretty awesome, creative meals as we work to use up whatever is left  before our Sunday trip. Soups turn to sauces, meals might look [...]

I want to start by taking a quick bit of this post to say MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of my readers. I am so thankful for every single one of you, and I am so in awe of where this blog has gone and (hopefully) will continue to go in 2015. Thanks [...]

no-cook coconut cocoa truffles… and the importance of your people

By | August 7th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

It'll be no surprise to anyone when I say this... People spend too much damn time with their noses in their phones (while not everyone is guilty of this, I'm speaking of the majority... At least here in the Silicon Valley). I think it's gotten too easy to forget about living and loving actual life [...]

fluffy fudgey brownies and why the ones you love most are the hardest to help

By | July 17th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

I have been blessed with a pretty outstanding family. My parents are just the best, and I couldn’t have asked for a better childhood, or adulthood for that matter. My mom is the most selfless person I know, and my dad comes over just to hang out with my husband, which makes my heart so [...]

let’s unlearn the crap… plus a new paleo cacao energy bar recipe!

By | June 6th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

A special delivery came yesterday, which provided a much needed mood-boost. Chocolate (especially Love Bean Fudge) and a good book can heal most problems, after all... So now I finally get to crack into  Liz Wolfe's book Eat the Yolks. It's as awesome as I knew it would be. A fellow English major, the girl can write, and [...]

cocoa chia pudding… it’s like childhood in a bowl

By | April 4th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

Nothing beats a morning at home with Rusty, our girls, and a cup of my coconutty protein coffee... or so I thought until I tried this new recipe and this particular morning got even better! I have been experimenting with chia seeds since we got a giant bag at Costco, and so far, I freaking [...]
