This recipe is something I developed after being inspired by so many other drool-worthy recipes. I love making healthy but “indulgent-looking” recipes, especially when they are nourishing and oh so flavorful! That’s one reason I got into health coaching in the first place – the idea that eating healthy doesn’t have to come at the price of losing taste. I strive to create recipes packed with flavor and a multitude of health benefits.

This recipe is made with all organic ingredients, simple to make the night before and assemble in the morning, full of protein and fiber which will keep you feeling full for longer, and loaded with omega-3 fatty acids which is great for your skin!
