Vanilla Protein French Toast

Today I faced the biggest dilemma of my life: should I get blueberry pancakes or French toast for brunch? On one hand, French toast is fluffy, thick, and stuffed with decadent cinnamon-vanilla flavor. Yet, blueberry pancakes combine savory and sweet perfectly in one hearty dish that will leave you feeling satisfied for hours. Decisions, decisions.…

Healthy “Dirt Pudding” Parfait

Today, my friend brought Chocolate-flavored Greek Yogurt to school for lunch. At first I was like: chocolate-flavored yogurt? That’s insane, it’s like pudding… but healthy, ugh! But then I was like: chocolate-flavored yogurt!? That’s insane! It’s like pudding… but HEALTHY! And so was born my idea for a healthy chocolate parfait! When I was a…
