Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups


I’m always on the hunt for new healthy snack ideas, especially ones that contain minimal ingredients and no added sugar.

Behold: homemade fruit roll-ups! With only 1 ingredient required: fruit! Which means these are not only super easy to make, but they have no added sugar, and are 100% all-natural!

Now if you’d like to add a bit of sweetness, you’re welcome to add a tablespoon of honey or agave when you blend the fruit. I made these with strawberries and mangoes so far, both of which were definitely sweet enough on their own. But if you make it with raspberries or any fruit that is a bit more tart, I’d suggest sweetening it to your liking.

The only downside is that these will be in the oven for at least 3 hours, so it’s a bit time consuming to make. I’d make as many as you can in one batch to stock up.

Another thing to note is that you’ll be baking these on a plastic-lined sheet, but don’t worry about the plastic melting. The oven will be at a low temp of 170 so the plastic wrap doesn’t melt at all.

The first time I made these I used parchment paper, not knowing that the fruit sticks to the paper and doesn’t peel off. (Oops!) I also tried using a silicone non-stick mat, but it tends to dry the fruit out, so I’d stick to plastic wrap for best results.

Egg Frittata Muffins

  One of the reasons many of us struggle with maintaining a clean diet is lack of time. Daily meal preparation can be extremely time consuming, which I think is why a lot of us end up purchasing store-bought food – because it’s faster and easier than slaving in the kitchen after a long day of work. These egg frittata muffins are the perfect solution if you’re looking for healthy, homemade breakfast on the go. They’re packed with vegetables and protein, easy to make, and you can make a large quantity and store them in fridge for a simple breakfast to bring with you to work, or for a quick bite before you head out to start your day. Egg Frittata Muffins Ingredients 6 eggs ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese 1 tbsp green bell pepper, diced 1 tbsp red bell pepper, diced 1 tbsp orange bell pepper, diced 1 tbsp white onion, diced 2 tbsp spinach leaves, chopped Sea salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste 2 tbsp part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese and 2 tbsp diced tomato, for topping Instruction

Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

  Years ago, I stopped eating meat due to digestive issues, which is one of the reasons I started this blog… to create and share healthy, flavorful meat-free recipes! Over time, I discovered many great alternatives out there: black beans, chickpeas, lentils, marinated tofu, and even… cauliflower! After a while, it became a fun challenge to concoct creative recipes with unique ingredients. I have to admit, there are a few things I miss, one of them being buffalo wings. I don’t think it was the chicken that I missed… more so the buffalo sauce, since I  love  spicy food. I made buffalo cauliflower for the first time this week, and it was absolute heaven! I used Earth Balance dairy-free butter (it was the only butter I had at the time), and it worked perfectly fine. If you’re on a vegan diet, any vegan butter will do. And you can pair it with a side of vegan blue cheese or ranch dressing. (If not, regular butter and dressing works too.) For the hot sauce, I used Frank’s Red Hot, and it was

No-Bake Protein Bites

  These little bite-sized protein balls are not only raw and vegan, but they only take 10 minutes to make (no baking required!) and they’re so tasty! I just made them for the first time a few weeks ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. They’re a great pre-workout boost since they’re loaded with protein from oats, peanut butter and chia seeds. They’re also a handy  on the go snack, whether you bring them in the car or for an afternoon treat at work.  No-Bake Protein Bites Ingredients ¾ cup dry old-fashioned oats ¼ cup shredded coconut ¼ cup creamy peanut butter ¼ cup semi-sweet or dairy-free chocolate chips 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or agave nectar 1 tbsp chia seeds 1 tsp vanilla extract Instructions Soak chia seeds in 2 tbsp of water for 1 minute until they have a jelly-like substance. Stir all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Cover and store in refrigerator for 10 minutes. Remove from fridge and roll mix into 1-2 inch balls with your hands.
