Cacao Porridge with a Twist

Chocolate, the gift that keeps on giving. As long as you keep it in the house. 😅🍫🍨

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
A busy morning couldn’t keep me from my favorite way to enjoy chocolate, Cacao Porridge! This porridge has a special twist of quinoa and Coachs Oats cooked overnight in a crockpot. Woke up with our home smelling of chocolate. 😍🤤🍫

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Ingredients: (Serves 6)

  • 1 and 1/2 cup Coach Oats
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 4 tablespoons Ripple Foods Half & Half
  • 4 tablespoons Cacao Powder
  • 5 cups water (or non-dairy milk)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Directions:

  • Spray a medium-large crockpot wit cooking spray (don’t forget this part!)
  • Add ingredients and mix until everything is combined.
  • Cooking on medium high for roughly 6 hours (or overnight).
  • In the morning you’ll have to mix the entire serving, I added a cup of water and 1 tablespoon vanilla whey powder in the morning so the consistency wouldn’t be as thick. Your preference though!
  • Top with yogurt, banana slices, chocolate peanut butter, and more chocolate if you’d like.
  • I store the leftovers in a big tupperware in the fridge for up to five days. Enjoy!

Late night Pumpkin Cake Donut making happened and I couldn’t be happier! Topped these babies with a peanut butter glaze, figs, and raw pecans. May I mention that they smell like a Fonut? 😱🍩

Affogato of my dreams.

Words cannot espresso how much you mean to me, Dark Chocolate Affogato. 😍☕️🍦

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

You know you have the right gals in your life when they order an affogato at Sweet Rose Creamery. Before meeting Brenna and Maggie, I would have thought you sneezed when saying that word. I’ve always drank my coffee black, except for the occasional caramel frap in high school, so adding anything to my espresso never crossed my mind, until now. Thankful my Nespresso shipment is on it’s way and my freezer is stocked with Halo Top, there’s going to be a lot go affogato’s in my life from here on out. 👩🏻‍🍳🍦

Veggie filled Toast Tuesday

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Vegetables aren’t my favorite, there, I said it! It’s taken me a long time to enjoy veggies. (How old am I, 5? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️) A few well known ways of sneaking veggies into your day are adding a handful of spinach to a chocolate smoothie, riced cauliflower in your porridge, or using zucchini as pasta. My favorite way to add veggies to my day are of course as toast toppings! 🤤🥑🍞


Toast four ways:
1. @littlenorthernbakehouse seeded GF bread, eggplant hummus, crunchy kale, and fried egg.
2. @canyonglutenfree 7-grain bread, cream cheese, strawberries, figs, and @eatnuttzo paleo power fuel chocolate syrup drizzle.
3. @canyonglutenfree 7-grain bread, @bluemooseofboulder pesto, roasted honey carrots in @latourangelleartisanoils NutriBlend Oil and @naturenates honey.
4. @littlenorthernbakehouse seeded GF bread, mashed avocado, @bluemooseofboulder chipotle spicy hummus, cucumber slices, and @traderjoeslist “everything but the bagel” seasoning. 🍳🌿🍞


Now it’s your turn, tag your Toast creations with #ToastLikeRobin for everyone to see! Can’t wait to drool over your toasts and share ten of my favorites. Happy Toasting! 👩🏻‍🍳📷🍞

You are more…

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset“i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that”

Being in the modeling industry for over 13 years I’ve had my fair share of negative comments, from myself and others. There are standards and I respect that. What I’ve learned over the years is that nothing is more important than your health. Once I started thinking positively about my body and embracing every inch, bookings began to happen more often and this crazy industry became fun! Self-care and love will get you a long way in this life, something you do not want to miss out on. 🌝💘🥞
