Cookies, Cake and Ice Cream

…the HEALTHY way! That’s right: this week I had a Fitnessista Breakfast Cookie, Katie’s Oatmeal Crepe Cakes, and Angela’s Banana Softserve Overnight Oats.

Breakfast cookie: 1/3 cup oats, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1/8 cup almond breeze, 1/2 banana. Topped with a drizzle of coconutΒ  cream.

Money $hot. πŸ™‚

Banana Softserve Overnight Oats in my spiffy light-up Rainforest Cafe cup. πŸ™‚

Topped with cacao nibs. πŸ™‚

Katie’s AMAZING Oatmeal Cookie Crepe Cakes! Oh my gosh, soo good.

Heaven. On. A. Plate. Oh my word. My cakes were topped with strawberries, blueberries and May’s Cacao(nut) Euphoria, AKA Most Amazing Stuff Ever.

Seriously. If you’ve never made her Cacao Euphoria, you NEED to. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t in heaven while eating it and I actually could’ve eaten the whole bowl in one sitting. It’s fluffy, light, chocolate-y and HEALTHY. Yes, it’s a little bit higher in fat because it’s made with coconut cream, but as I’ve mentioned before, my body prefers a generous allowance of fat in my diet so I’m okay with it. Also, because of the agave (or in my case, honey) I wouldn’t eat this every day, but as the occasional snack/treat/dessert, it’s AMAZING.

It kinda reminds me of a truffle filling, and I may frost my next birthday cake with it. πŸ™‚

This next bit is deviating slightly from the decadent breakfast pictures above, but I wanted to apologize for my serious lack of posts! It’s been almost a week since I last blogged and that is not cool. However, life take its toll and I am a busy girl often without access to a computer; therefore, a lack of posts is what I get.

One of the reasons I was busy this weekend was because I took a trip up to Dallas! I got to spend time with some of my very closest friends and it was wonderful. While I was there, my friend Mckenzie and I also took some pictures together. She is a fabulously talented photographer and we always enjoy having mini photoshoots. Here are a few of the pictures we took. πŸ™‚

Sorry if you totally don’t care about seeing our pictures, lol. I don’t blame you at all; I’m just trying to find a good balance between blogging about my food and blogging about my life and what’s happening to me. Do you care about what’s going on in my life, or would you rather just see the food/recipes? I totally understand if that’s all you want, so just let me know. What you guys want is what you’ll get. πŸ™‚

Better get packing! I’m leaving yet again for a week-long camp, so this will probably be my last post till next Sunday.

Question of the Day 1: How do you feel about blogging about your life? Do you enjoy reading other people’s life blogs, or do you really only read them for the food ideas/recipes?

Question of the Day 2: What would you like to see on THIS blog? Any ideas? I would love to hear your feeback and incorporate it into my posts. πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading!

  1. I LOVE hearing about BOTH!!!! The recipes always look yummy and your pictures are gorgeous! Your friend is a very talented photographer… and she has a beautiful model to work with!

  2. YES! YES! YES! I love this blog and I love the photos! I usually don’t read twitter or follow people’s personal blogs but you’re really awesome and smart and recommend a lot of great healthy things so naturally I would like to follow what you do because you are a great role model. There are a lot of celebrity teens out there doing weird things and you’re doing great things. I’m not a cook but I tried to make some of the things you posted because I really liked you but then I ended up liking the food. So now I make them because I like the food AND because I like you. If you blog about different interests it might influence others to cook that normally don’t cook, or might influence other people to do the things you do. The photos are awesome and my favorite photo of you is the first one with you reading under the tree. Anyway, I really like you so I like this.

  3. It’s always nice to see what’s going on with people on their blogs and not just food food food!! The pictures turned out great and I’m glad you had fun hanging out in Dallas! πŸ™‚

  4. I want both. I really enjoyed the pictures of you! It looks like you two had fun. πŸ™‚

  5. im in love with ur photoshoot and the tie-dye shirt ur wearing ❀

    omg the crepe and katie's oat pancakes!! WOW urs always turn out SO AMAZING! i love the first one with the delicious drizzle ontop- so creative ❀ ❀

  6. Oh Kelsey, your breakfast looks DIVINE!
    And you’re so pretty that I don’t think anyone would mind your non-food photos πŸ™‚

  7. You’re so pretty! And your breakfasts are making me drool over here!

    I think you should definitely post about both your eats and your life πŸ™‚

    And I love that I’m not the only high schooler who has a blog! Swing by my blog for a visit πŸ™‚

  8. Aren’t blog recipes just the best?! I need to make a breakfast cookie asap. Yours looks scrumptious!
    Love the photos too. You are so pretty!

    And to answer your questions:
    -I use Amy’s All-American veggie burgers (or Dr Praeger’s cali, but I like Amy’s the best)
    -For protein shakes I actually use Designer Whey vanilla. I mix 1 scoop with 1 frozen banana, a cup of almond milk, and a few ice cubes and it’s delicious!

    Have a wonderful week love πŸ™‚

  9. teenagehealthfreak

    your blog is great..i like to hear about both!! πŸ™‚ …and did you ever try the beets???

  10. Hey! Food + photos… this is a great post. You’ve provided FOUR amazing recipes to your readers. πŸ™‚
    I actually made the Cacao-nut Euphoria this morning.

    I blog about my life and I provide information, tips, and recipes that I think people will like. I blog to record events, journal my thoughts, promote things I like, and hopefully teach someone something that will help them.

    I’d be interested in reading about your life, definitely! That’s part of what makes your blog original. Unless you come up with your own recipes all the time, you can’t ALWAYS parrot other bloggers’ recipes. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate these recipes; I it when bloggers re-post recipes because I know they must be good.

    You have a great blog, Kelsey! Keep it up. πŸ˜€

  15. Hey! I just found your blog and I’m so glad I did! It’s always nice to find other younger health bloggers. Love the pics in this are gorgeous girl!
