Cherry Vanilla Almond Chia Pudding

Cherry Vanilla Almond Chia Pudding - Lauren Kelly Nutrition

Don’t be afraid of the words “chia pudding”.  This has all the benefits of chia seeds in one delicious bowl. For those who didn’t know this, when you put chia seeds in liquid, they become gel-like, almost like a pudding.  Enter my Chia Pudding….lightly sweet, packed with omega fatty acids and antioxidants.  This is my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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

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 […]
