Birthday Waffles and New Website

Screen Shot 2013-08-01 at 5.59.30 PMColorful Eats is transitioning to a complete and new website! Please follow Colorful Eats for nutritional inspiration and grain-free recipes!

My first recipe is grain-free waffles made with coconut flour and topped with whipped cream.  I have been working on my grain-free waffles for quite sometime and finally nailed it just in time for my birthday!

All recipes on the new site will be grain-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar free as always! I will be focusing more on nutritional content and transitioning towards nutritional consulting.  As I recently finished my nutrition certification and am now a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I am very excited about this new stage and adventure of life!

Please visit the new site and enjoy!!!

Frozen Chocolate Crunch Bites

IMG_4205

As a little girl, one of my favorite snacks was my mom’s rice krispie treats.  Of course, knowing my mother, she made them without the marshmallows and instead used peanut butter to hold them together.  For a grain-free alternative, the shredded coconut in these rich and creamy treats provides a bit of crunch!

These sweet little bites are packed with protein, quality, and taste!  Quick to make, they are perfect for an afternoon snack on a hot summer day.  Because coconut oil melts at 76 degrees, they will melt quickly in your hands so be sure to keep them cool until ready to enjoy!

Cacao and maca powders are wonderful ancient super foods containing anti-oxidants, minerals, & vitamins and have been shown to enhance moods and focus.  Maca is a root that grows high in the mountains of Peru and as an adaptogen it nourishes the endocrine system and boosts adrenal function.  The combination of cacao and maca will stimulate your energy, boost your stamina, and put a smile on your face.

Enjoy these sweet bites of rich, chocolatey goodness—a perfect grain-free snack for all ages!
