AVOCADO TOAST

Avocado toast is so easy and is such a good way your start your day! It’s so full of healthy fats and antioxidants to get your brain going. I like to use gluten-free bread or a rice cake!

  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice 
  • A pinch Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Sliced bread or a rice cake

Mash avocado, mix with lemon & salt. Spread on a piece of toast or a rice cake, top with tomato (and some Sriratcha 🙂 ) and you’re good to go!

APPLE CINNAMON OVERNIGHT OATS

These Apple Cinnamon overnight oats are SO yummy!  I don’t think there’s an easier, healthier, more delicious breakfast out there. Throw everything in a jar, shake it up, and it’s ready in the morning for an easy grab-n-go breakfast! Linked here is another overnight oat recipe that I hope you’ll love too.

  • 1/2 cup Vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • 1/4 cup Plain or Vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Applesauce or freshly grated apple (my fav)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Add all ingredients to a container with an airtight lid ( I like to use a jar) and shake well to combine. refrigerate overnight, top with chia seeds, more cinnamon, or whatever you’d like!

SMOOTHIE BOWL

If you watch my Instagram stories ( @simplejoyofbeing ), you have probably seen this smoothie bowl a MILLION times. I decided to include the recipe here, because y’all, I’m obsessed. This is definitely my all-time favorite smoothie. It reminds me of a fruit sorbet that I had at the beach once, but full of good-for-you yumminess! Linked here is another one of my favorite smoothie recipes that I hope you love as much as I do!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups chopped + frozen fruit (I like mango, strawberry, pineapple, & peach!!!)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach or kale, whichever you prefer (I like both!)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (vanilla or unsweetened)
  • 1/2 scoop vegan protein powder
  • 5 ice cubes

Toppings:

  •  Goji berries
  • Chia seeds
  • Fresh fruit
  • Granola (see next recipe) 

Blend all ingredients in a blender & pour into a bowl. Top with the toppings I have listed here, or use your own!

“COOKIE DOUGH” GREEK YOGURT

Y’all, this yogurt tastes EXACTLY like cookie dough, but it’s so good for you ( and acceptable to eat for breakfast:) ). It also only takes a minute to whip up, and definitely gives your everyday greek yogurt an upgrade. It’s packed with protein and has chocolate, so whats not to love?  

  • 1 serving container vanilla or plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • A few chocolate chips to top it off 🙂

Mix all ingredients and top with a few chocolate chips. Enjoy your cookie dough for breakfast… you’re welcome 🙂

I hope you all enjoy these super easy breakfasts as much as I do! 

Much love, 

Chloe♥

Strawberry Picking + A Really Happy Day

 Hey y’all!

For today’s blog post, I’m going to share with y’all my day of strawberry picking, seeing Avengers: Infinity war (no spoilers, I promise), and just having an all-around good day. I usually don’t do blog posts like this, but it was such a happy day that I wanted to share it with you all!

I started out my day by going to mass with my best friend before driving an hour to a strawberry farm in the absolute middle of nowhere. We ate SO many strawberries and had an amazing time. The sun was shining and I could feel the glory and presence of God in those happy moments. It was beautiful!img_0427

P.s.: My best friend moves to Hawaii in less than a month! Pray that she and her family have safe travels and that she finds peace and comfort in her new home♥

Later in the day, I went to dinner at Oshi, a local Poké bowl restaurant.  (& psst … it’s pronounced “POH-keh.”). If you haven’t heard of poké, it’s a Hawaiian dish has chunks of tofu (my fav), fish, or other protein tossed over rice and topped with vegetables and delicious sauces. My personal favorite is rice topped with tofu, edamame, mango, pineapple, & avocado topped with a spicy sauce. I have yet to perfect making poké at home, but as soon as I perfect it I will post a recipe here! I meant to get a picture of what this delicious food looks like, but it was so yummy and I ate it too quickly. oops 🙂

After dinner, we went and saw Avengers: Infinity War. I won’t spoil anything for those who haven’t seen it, other than I seriously debated going again the next day to watch it again. 

All in all, it was just an amazing day and I wanted to share my happiness with all of you♥

Much love + too many strawberries,

Chloe♥
