Hey there! I would LOVE it if you could spare 90 seconds to so that I can better serve you!

Southwestern Chipotle Chicken Wrap // Do you need easy lunch or dinner ideas that are delicious and healthy? This wrap needs yo be your new GO-TO! It's packed with flavor and ultra healthy! | Tried and TastyI’ve been itching to make more wraps since the phenomenon of my Chicken, Spinach & Cream Cheese Tortilla Wrap and I’m finally getting around to it. You are going to fall.in.love with this wrap! It’s absolutely wonderful, not to mention 100% healthy and totally guilt free. The inspiration of this came from my friends’ husband who happened to cook dinner the other night.. and I happened to be over spending time with them and their INSANELY adorable twin babies!!! He made for us chicken tacos with a chipotle aioli sauce.  My word. I just about wanted to dunk my head right in to the bowl of aioli. It was incredible. 

In my efforts to bring more lunch and dinner ideas that are simple, healthy, and delicious, this wrap was born. Pretty much I took the idea of the taco and rolled it in a gluten free Food For Life Brown Rice Tortilla, spread it with delicious mashed avocado, an ever-so-slightly ‘healthier’ chipotle sauce (made with Tabasco Chipotle Pepperand McCormick Chipotle Chile Pepper) and topped it with your typical taco toppings. Boom. One of the most delicious wraps I’ve ever eaten!

How To Make Almond Flour // Making your own almond flour is made easy with the help of your Blendtec blender. All you need is one ingredient and a little bit of patience. Within a matter of moments you'll have fresh flour to use in your favorite recipes | Tried and TastyI have been experimenting with different types of flours over the last year or two in my quest to get away from all-purpose flour. Last year was my first real experience with almond flour when I made my Grain Free Blueberry Cookies. They turned out awesome! Coming from not having any idea that life existed outside of white and wheat flour, it’s been so neat to find alternatives for various diets. 

Making your own almond flour is super simple and only requires just a teensy bit of patience. If you blend to long you’ll end up with almond butter {which wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, just not what you are looking for}. With short bursts of blending, in no time you’ll have yourself fresh almond flour to use in your favorite recipe. With the help of my Blendtec Designer 625 Blender I was able to whip out a batch of flour in no time at all.

Do you love bakery style muffins but don't love the long list of unrecognizable ingredients? These Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Muffins are perfect for you! Made without any refined flour or sugar, they are a guilt free breakfast option! | Tried and TastyIn my quest to make a different zucchini recipe with each few that we pick from our garden, I recently decided that I wanted to add muffins to the list. I’ve already made bread, but not yet muffins. In my search for a healthy recipe I stumbled upon one that was almost made for me. With a little bit of tweaking this recipe WAS made for me. Or made by me? Or both. Anyway. The incorporation of a jumbo muffin pan immediately sent my mind to the delicious bakery store muffins. You know? Like the Costco chocolate muffins. Have you seen the ingredient list on those bad boys?? Not to mention, I’m pretty sure they are 2000+ calories PER muffin. YIKES!! So, with this recipe you can have a guilt free muffin with nearly 1/8th (I’m guessing) of the calories that tastes just as delicious IF not better! I’m telling you. They are amazing. They are great right out of the oven, but I personally think they are better the next day. Try them and tell me what you think!

One thing I’m loving cooking with is coconut oil. Specifically, Spectrum Naturals® Organic Coconut Oil (as well as the Spectrum® Coconut Spray Oil). What I love about them is that all of Spectrum Naturals® Oils are expeller pressed which “is any sort of oil that has been extracted from nuts, seeds, or other sources through a mechanical process that relies on sheer force rather than chemicals.” Yay for no yucky chemicals! Another bonus is that most of their oils are non GMO project verified. Yay for non GMO! Interested in giving Spectrum® a try?

Homemade Almond Milk // Making your own almond milk couldn't be any more simple. All you need are four ingredients and 60 seconds. Best part about it? You avoid Carrageenan the additive found in most store bought almond milks. Enjoy this fresh, smooth, creamy & rich homemade version today! | Tried and TastyI couldn’t be more excited for the weeklong series I have planned for you. I was recently sent a Blendtec Designer 625 Blender in the most gorgeous Seafoam and I LOVE it! While I’ve been an owner of a Blendtec blender for about five years, I have truly enjoyed the upgrade. Between the hubs and I, we typically use our Blendtec at least once but up to a couple of times a day. With that much use, you are going to need a high powered, great quality, well made blender.

With the 3.0 peak horsepower motor, there is more than enough power to get any job done. We are constantly making smoothies, nut butters, soups, and so much more. What I love about the new designer series is the illuminated, capacitive touch interface and 6-speed capacitive touch slider + pulse, making the blender more versatile and simple to use. It’s such a fun new feature. Because it’s completely flat, it’s a breeze to wipe clean! I also like that the illuminated display shows the remaining blend time {as I anxiously await my blended goodness}. As with the older models, there are also preprogrammed cycles including: smoothie, ice cream, whole juice, & hot soup.
