Strawberry Sorbet

16 oz strawberries, de-stemmed and frozen
1 5oz container of Coconut yogurt (I like So Delicious)

3 Tbs agave

Blend in high power blender [vitamix] until smooth.
Prepare a metal bread pan with parchment paper, covering bottom and sides
Pour the blended mixture into pan, freeze 2 hours, serve.

(If you leave the sorbet in freeze longer, let thaw about 20 min before serving, to help soften it up.)

Next, pour the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Stir well, and slowly pour in almond milk

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas

I’m usually starving when I finish running. It could quite possibly be because I leave the house rarely eating breakfast before I go, I know it’s a bad habit. It could also be that I spend 60+ minutes in my own head, all those random thoughts bouncing around as I zone out along the strand. Well today was no different: The idea of a “healthy” snack in combination of my favorite season [FALL] led to this:


Pumpkin Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas

1 ½ Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp agave
(1 tsp brown sugar, optional)

Preheat oven to 375.
Line baking pan with tin foil.
In a medium bowl toss the chickpeas with olive oil
Sprinkle and stir all the seasoning, to ensure evenly coated.
Spread evenly on baking pan.
Cook about 45 minutes.
