CHICKPEA Brownies (no added sugar)

What says Sunday brunch better than frittatas?  How about mini egg frittatas? What I love about this recipe is that it can be completely individualized person to person!

Garlicky Spinach Dip

Who loves spinach dip?? 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ What if I told you I've got a healthy spinach dip recipe?? Using tons of fresh spinach and garlic and instead of mayo or sour cream (like traditional spinach dip), I use nonfat Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is packed with protein which makes this appetizer more nutrient dense than traditional… Continue reading Garlicky Spinach Dip
