Pina Colada Popsicles

Pina Colada Popsicles - Lauren Kelly Nutrition

If you are looking for a healthy, refreshing treat, look no further.  These popsicles contain protein from the Greek yogurt and have no added sugar. I didn’t make these popsicles alcoholic, but if you’d like to add some rum to the yogurt/milk mixture, go for it!  Maybe make half of them with rum and half without.  This […]

Say goodbye to juice boxes and sodas.  These naturally flavored waters are the perfect, healthy refreshing drinks. This gives the phrase “taste the rainbow” a whole new meaning.   These waters have no added sugars, additives or chemicals.  They only contain all whole, clean ingredients. There really is no “recipe” for these drinks.  Simply place […]

Chili Lime Roasted Almonds

Chili Lime Roasted Almonds - Lauren Kelly Nutrition

I was at Trader Joe’s recently and spotted these Thai Chili Lime Almonds.  They sounded delicious and I knew I had to make something similar. As delicious as the Trader Joe’s ones look, there were a lot of ingredients in there I didn’t recognize.  Check it out: INGREDIENTS: Almonds, Tom Yum Powder (Maltodextrin, Salt, Sugar, Chili, […]

Protein Granola

Protein Granola - Lauren Kelly Nutrition

I love homemade granola. I love it so much that I need to watch my portions because even though it’s healthy, too much of anything isn’t good for you. This granola is filled with all good stuff.   Hemp seeds contains tons of protein, omega-fatty-acids, fiber and antioxidants.    Both quinoa and hemp seeds are complete […]

Vegan Banana Cupcakes with Blueberry Buttercream Frosting

Vegan Banana Cupcakes with Blueberry Buttercream Frosting - Lauren Kelly Nutrition

My husband gave up chocolate for Lent which is a very big deal for him.  I decided to try to make a healthy cupcake recipe without chocolate that he could enjoy.  And they ended up being magical. The combination of the flavors were perfect.  I had intended on making lemon cupcakes with blueberry frosting but […]

Kale and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Kale and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers - Lauren Kelly Nutrition

These are the perfect vegetarian dinner for Meatless Monday or Fridays during Lent. They can easily be made vegan if you take off the cheese.  I love stuffed peppers, just not stuffed with meat. I was thrilled when Dr. Praeger’s contacted me to deconstruct one of their veggies burgers to create a recipe.  I love Dr. […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Biscotti and a GIVEAWAY

Peanut Butter Chocolate Biscotti

Ahhhh…. Peanut Butter Chocolate Biscotti, made healthier but still crazy delicious.  All you need is a cup of coffee, green tea or even a glass of milk  (almond, of course ) and you are good to go! Today is a very special day for me.  In fact, I can’t believe my kids have to go […]

Antioxidant Smoothie


I drink a juice or smoothie every day.   I make it around 3:30 in the afternoon, when I am seriously hungry, my kids are snacking (on things I really want to eat) and I am tempted to eat all of it.  So I make a nice healthy smoothie to help keep my cravings at […]

Southwestern Breakfast Bowl

Southwestern Breakfast Bowl Lauren Kelly Nutrition

If you are like me, you are always looking for new breakfast ideas.  I want a healthy breakfast that tastes delicious.  Who doesn’t?  And we eat eggs for dinner too.  A lot.  I have three little boys that keep me extremely busy so some nights we have breakfast for dinner.  And it’s awesome. I’m not […]

Apple Kale Risotto with Parmesan Crisps

Apple Kale Risotto with Parmesan Crisps Lauren Kelly Nutrition

With March being National Nutrition Month, I wanted to share a recipe that is packed with quality ingredients but also tastes delicious.   I really love risotto.  There’s nothing better than a good, healthy risotto recipe.  This is vegetarian, but I bet carnivores would love this with some sliced sausage or chicken in it. Unfortunately, many […]
