Healthier Apple Crisp

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!

Sugar-Free Cream Cheese Frosting

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!

How to Eat Healthy When I Don’t Have Time to Cook

My life has been crazy busy lately with my work schedule and wedding planning and I have not been able to work on the blog as much as I would like. I thought this would be a great opportunity to share how I eat healthy when I don’t have time to cook whenever I would like. I’m going to share what my routine has been like the past couple of months and how I have stayed on track without the extra time to whip up creative, healthy dishes.

One thing to note is that I do NOT miss out on unhealthy food splurging. There have been multiple birthdays or other celebrations and other weekly unhealthy lunches and/or dinners. I try to eat healthy 75 – 80% of the time and it has been working for me. (Side note, I have also been exercising about 3 – 4 days per week because I have a sedentary job and I need to get up and move at some point.)

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be creative. If time permits, it helps to be creative so eating healthy doesn’t get boring and bland over time, but that’s not always possible. I’m going to share my breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert go-to options. This is what I’ve been doing to make sure I fit into my wedding dress in May! Continue reading
