Whole Wheat Flax Seed Pumpkin Waffles with Apples and Cinnamon

Last week I brought you the most unhealthy, most delicious Sourdough Bread Brown Sugar Pecan Sticky Buns EVER. While they ARE irresistible, they ARE NOT the best practical option for a healthy start to your day. Breakfast doesn't have to be boring though. These Whole Wheat Flax Seed Pumpkin Waffles with Apples and Cinnamon are not only a good-for-you breakfast that you won't feel guilty about, but also full of seasonal flavors.

Tortilla Chip Chicken Salad with Jalapeño Lime Dressing

Lunch is always a difficult meal for me to get inspired about. Midday, I want something light yet filling, fresh and satisfying that will last me through the afternoon. Salads are always a good go-to lunch option but most are uninteresting and ultimately unhealthy, which completely defeats the purpose of eating a salad in the first place. This salad is not one of those—it is flavorful, healthy and a lunch you'll be excited to dive into!

Chia Seed Pudding

I have a very serious sweet tooth ... As you can tell by my blog, I really try to eat a healthy diet, except when it comes to dessert. I have no will power. I love sweets and never deny myself (everything in moderation). But when you crave something sweet after every meal (even breakfast) you have to find something other than chocolate chip cookies to satisfy.

Healthy Breakfast and Lunch

We recently spent a weekend in Boston and it seems like all we did was eat (much like every vacation we go on!)—days filled with oysters, lobster rolls, clam chowders and hot dogs at baseball games. Needless to say, when we got home I was ready to get back into our regular routine of healthy (and simple) eating. I love fine dinning at restaurants but honestly would rather eat a home cooked meal.
