A little over seven weeks ago, I went plant-based. Yep, that's right. I'm one of those "weird vegans" now. And although I prefer the term plant-based, I think a lot of people view plant-based and vegan as the same thing. There's a few differences, but for the purpose of this post, I'm not going to … Continue reading I’m Plant-Based! Why I Changed My Mind…
This shelter-in-place order has got me testing out new recipes in the kitchen and I'm not mad about it! I wanted to make a vegan dessert that you didn't have to bake since it's getting hot here in Northern CA and I didn't want to heat up the house by turning on the oven. These … Continue reading Vegan No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cashew Bars

Unfortunately, a lot of smoothies you can buy at places like Jamba are loaded in sugar and are high in carbs, fat and calories. When you make them at home, you … Continue reading Mixed Berry Protein Smoothie Bowl

I hope you love Coffee Over Cardio coffee as much as I do!
*AVOCADOSANDBURPEES saves you 15%!* If you've been following me for awhile, you probably already know that I LOVE PROTEIN BARS.
