Mint Chocolate Chip Brownie Bites

If there is one thing I have loved since childhood it is anything mint chocolate. I’m surprised I didn’t turn in to mint chocolate chip ice cream as a kid I ate it so much! I used two of my favorites for this recipe - Andes mints and Kodiak Cakes.

Blueberry-Almond Butter Smoothie

A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away! Well, if only that was how it goes. I’ve been on a serious smoothie kick since summer and I don’t hate it one bit. My recent concoction is inspired by one of my go-to’s from Island Smoothie, a favorite place of mine in OBX. It’s packed with protein, healthy fats + antioxidants, and the flavor profile resembles that of a blueberry pie.

Asian Turkey Meatballs

As much as I unintentionally do #meatlessmonday weekly, this is not going to be one of those weeks! I've had a serious craving for these Asian Turkey Meatballs and once you make them you'll understand why! They pack a ton of flavor + are the perfect additional to zoodles, a brown rice bowl, a salad or anything! They are super easy to prep + only take about 30 minutes to bake in the oven...I call that a win! I like to top them with a homemade sweet + spicy sauce for even more of a flavor punch.
