When it’s pumpkin season but you live in San Diego.

When it’s pumpkin season but you live in San Diego.

Grab your pumpkin latte, Pumpkin Pie Perfect Bar, and your bathing suit because pumpkin season in San Diego means another month and a half of beach days. It did drop to 75°F last weekend so maybe a light sweater too. Pumpkin Pie Perfect Bar is here (only for a limited time) and I could literally jump for joy. I wondered if Poppy would enjoy the Pumpkin Pie Perfect Bar as much as me and then she ate the entire bar in one sitting. I guess that means no more sharing because she wants the entire bar every time now. I don’t blame her! What’s not to love about pumpkin pie in a bar form with no baking required?

Head to perfectsnacks.com to find them in a fridge near you. Have you tried the Pumpkin Pie Perfect Bar before? #perfectaspie

Perfect Bar PB&J cup, in collaboration with Perfect Snacks.

Ain’t nothin more dreamy than this Perfect Snacks coconut peanut butter bar and strawberry chia seed jam combo. Been loving this combo so much that I had to cover it in dark chocolate to make the best PB&J cup you’ve ever had.  I highly recommend prepping these bad boys as a grab-n-go treat for the week. Don’t have time to make these? That’s ok, grab a Perfect Snacks Perfect Bar (any flavor will do. They’re all deliciously made with freshly-ground peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter, organic honey and tasty whole-food ingredients), throw some homemade strawberry chia seed jam on top, and a couple chocolate chips. You really have no excuse here. 😉

These are a few of my favorite things. *New monthly series!*

Hi friends! I’ve been wanting to start this new series where I share five of my favorite things in the beginning of each month but I blinked and it has been five months into the new year already.  🤯 Starting now because BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, am I right? Each month I’ll share five things: food, drink, exercise, item to wear, and of course a favorite of Pop’s. Continue reading because I cannot live without any of these right now!

Food- This might not come as a surprise but the NEW Birthday Cake Perfect Bar. Like what?! I’ve been obsessed with Perfect Bars since 2012 and they keep getting better and better. Packed with 20 superfoods and taste like birthday cake cookie dough. Nuff said.

Drink- Not sure if you look forward to my cold brew pours as much as I do each morning but my new favorite concoction is a dirty chai cold brew. Made with Majka’s new Vanilla Chai lactation booster, Stumptown coffee turned into cold brew with my Ninja Hot & Cold Brew maker, Ripple unsweetened vanilla, and Four Sigmatic lions mane. Blend on high for 45 seconds and pour over ice while listening to some vibey tunes.

Exercise- Want to make your abs cry? Then I suggest doing TRX pikes. TRX pikes help you build a strong core by challenging your balance and stability, along with your abdominal muscles. You can adjust the intensity of the exercise by how big your pike is. This exercise also works your upper body for things like handstands, which I have never done. Maybe I’ll work on that next!

Item of clothing- My Made by Mary Birth Flower necklace. This one is my most favorite out of the bunch. When I saw Made by Mary announce that they were launching Birth Flower necklaces I thought that would be cute to get for Poppy’s birthday month (August). When I saw that August’s birth flower was a Poppy I actually lost my cool and knew I had to have it! I ordered mine first thing the morning of launch day and counted the days until it arrived. I never take it off!

Poppy item-  There is nothing cuter than watching Poppy eat. Seriously, NOTHING. I did an Instagram Live last week and I think we could have all sat there in silence while Poppy ate her sweet potato pure. Her cheeks chomping on food, dead. But since Poppy is only eating more and more solid food we decided that her Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair had to be her most favorite item right now. It not only looks cool but she can use it until she’s three years old! The chair grows as she grows and that’s a game changer for us.

Perfect Zucchini Muffins

How to eat more veggies: make zucchini muffins and stuff them with Perfect Snacks chocolate chip bites.

If you’re new around here then you should know that veggies aren’t my favorite. I know… what kind of nutritionist am I?! Just because vegetables aren’t my favorite doesn’t mean that I don’t eat them daily. Some days I’ll make a salad with roasted veggies, but most days I’m sticking my veggies in my cacao cauli-oats or zucchini chocolate chip muffins with Perfect Snacks chocolate chip bites. (#ad) Perfect Snacks bites are perfect on their own (legit tastes like cookie dough AND have 20 superfoods in them, too) as a grab-n-go snack but I love throwing them on just about everything. Checkout Perfect Snack’s store locator to find these bites near you, or buy online at perfectsnacks.com.

Zucchini Muffins stuffed with Perfect Bar Chocolate Chip Bites (Recipe adapted from Sugared and Stirred):

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened nut milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Dash of pink himalayan salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup grated zucchini, pressed between paper towels to remove excess water
  • 1/3 cup Perfect Snacks chocolate chip bites and more for topping.

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spray a muffin pack with non-stick spray.
  • Whisk together wet ingredients in a large bowl, then gentle fold in shredded zucchini.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, pink salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium size bowl. Gently fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
  • Mix in Perfect Bar bites.
  • Fill 4-5 muffin slots almost to the top.
  • Top with extra Perfect Snacks chocolate chips bites.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden on top.
  • Let cool slightly before devouring!
