We have been making smoothies in a blender since kids, blending is nothing new. Juicing is not a new thing either but it has become very popular recently. I have only tried juices one time from The Garden Table in Indianapolis and they were so delicious! I do not make juices at home though. I actually prefer blending because I like to keep as many nutrients as possible in my drink. Some people may not like the pulp in a blended drink and may prefer juicing. If you have ever wondered about the differences, this post will quickly cover juicing vs. blending – the basics.
There are also some recipes for drinks you can make at home as well as the health benefits of each one. Continue reading →
On a beautiful Saturday in October, my family and I went to an apple orchard for the second time this fall. We went earlier in the fall, I think it was early September, and most apples were not ready to be picked yet. We had to make a second trip when most apples would be ready. Let me tell you, we came home with more apples than we knew what to do with, so I decided I would try (for the first time ever) to make apple desserts. I’m not calling this apple crisp a healthy apple crisp, but a healthier apple crisp because I cannot completely eliminate butter to have a proper crisp!
It’s not a secret that I love a good Bloody Mary. Not just during a Sunday brunch though, I like a Bloody Mary even in the evenings!

Today I have a special recipe post. This is the first guest post on Kate’s Better Bite! This recipe was created by Viktor Milevski who lives all the way in Macedonia.

By far the best frosting is cream cheese frosting. I don’t think plain white frosting should ever be used in desserts, but maybe that’s just me. This sugar-free cream cheese frosting recipe is definitely much healthier than a regular cream cheese frosting. It avoids butter and sugar!
It’s finally warm outside! I’m so excited it’s spring! What could be better in the spring than a fresh salad? I know, probably a lot of things.. This Green Apple Brussels Sprout Salad with Smoked Gouda is my favorite salad though and I can’t wait to make it again. I served this salad at a party and lots of people were wanting the recipe – well the recipe is finally here!
