Gluten Free Carrot Cake Loaf

Gluten Free Carrot Cake Loaf - a gluten free carrot cake loaf packed with protein and fiber, and all guilt-free | adoubledose.comGluten Free Carrot Cake Loaf - a gluten free carrot cake loaf packed with protein and fiber, and all guilt-free | After posting this carrot cake bundt cake a couple of weeks ago, I was majorly craving carrot cake. I hadn’t made a loaf in forever, so this was my perfect excuse! As I have mentioned before, I love using a combination of coconut flour + protein powder in baking because it makes it lower carb and higher in protein! Perfect for snacking;)

This one actually turned out SUPER moist and fluffy!Gluten Free Carrot Cake Loaf - a gluten free carrot cake loaf packed with protein and fiber, and all guilt-free | adoubledose.comGluten Free Carrot Cake Loaf - a gluten free carrot cake loaf packed with protein and fiber, and all guilt-free | Gluten Free Carrot Cake Loaf - a gluten free carrot cake loaf packed with protein and fiber, and all guilt-free |{BRACELETS: David Yurman Cable Bracelets herehere, and here and  Cartier Dupe Bracelet | RINGS:  David Yurman Ring here and Stackable Pave Rings | WATCH:  Michele Deco Watch }

Okay, I will admit that I originally made this carrot cake loaf using a new vegan protein powder that had been sent to us. I am usually wary of vegan protein powders because I am SO used to the way whey tastes and bakes, that it is hard for me to try anything else.

At Home Workout + Yogurt Parfait with Dove

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #LoveDoveFruits #CollectiveBiasBerry + Chocolate Yogurt Parfait - this parfait is the perfect post workout snack that is packed with protein, fresh fruit, on antioxidants | adoubledose.comNow that we are well into 2016, I feel like it is about the time that most people start getting discouraged and start letting go of their resolutions. I know that we have all been there before, and trust me, I was definitely one of those people who would have all intentions of sticking to eating more wholesome foods and working out regularly until I was a couple of months in and decided that eating mac n’ cheese, pizza, and froyo with EVERY topping possible sounded much better than the boring food I thought was better for me.

After making better choices with regards to eating for a couple of years and it becoming my lifestyle, I have found a way to switch up the typical “boring” snack and post workout meals.

Grain Free Pumpkin Pie

Happy Thanksgiving!

What would today be without all things pumpkin, especially pumpkin pie?! I have to say this is literally the holiday that I look forward to this holiday more than anything else simply because of the food. Okay, and being with my family, but the food is a close second.

My favorite things to eat are not just sweet things. I LOVE turkey and cranberry sauce, and of course, sweet potato with marshmallows. I do, however, have a M A J O R sweet tooth, so eating pies, especially pumpkin pie is my favorite part of the meal. Do I wait until Thanksgiving to have this? Absolutely not. I mean, they sell pumpkin all year long, so why not make it whenever the craving hits?

Our plans for Thanksgiving include baking up a storm, chowing down on the early side (like 4pm), and watching lots and lots of football.

Mediterranean Mezza Plate with Homemade Hummus

Mediterranean Mezza Plate- veggie crudites, homemade hummus, and crisp Paleo crackers |adoubledose.comIt is no surprise we both have quite the obsession with all things Mediterranean. We usually are way too lazy to make our own hummus, but we had a can of chickpeas sitting in our pantry for the longest time, so we decided to make some. It literally could not have been easier, and it is SO creamy. 

We will definitely be having more with our grilled chicken and salads. It would also be delicious on top of some toasted bread or pita! We had ours with our favorite Jilz Crackers which are gluten free, paleo, and vegan and SO good!

In other news, Texas has finally cooled off a little bit, so we will be sharing some more fall/winter outfits AND some holiday looks and gift guides, so make sure you don’t miss those!

Italian Pasta Shells with Tuna and Tomatoes

Italian Pasta with Tuna and Tomato - this easy to make, one-skillet meal will make the perfect healthy lunch or dinner and great leftovers! | adoubledose.comHappy Monday! We are getting back into a routine since we were gone for a few days visiting our parents in El Paso. We plan on doing a recap of our time there (hopefully this week) since we have some outfits to share and also some of our eats. 

We got back in Saturday night, so of course, our first stop was dinner because we were hungry (and food is always on our minds, #duh!)

Can you guess where we went? I know it’s a tough one.. Mediterranean. We chowed down (as always) and consumed way too much food and told myself that I would not eat again. Of course, a few hours later, I was ready to eat and my appetite was back in full swing.

Festive Chocolate Cheesecake Swirl Halloween Bars

Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake Halloween Bars - a tasty halloween treat that is guilt-free and festive! Even the kids will love it! | adoubledose.comHappy Happy Halloween! You didn’t think we’d miss out on an opportunity to bake something festive and fun, did you?

Confession: I usually make things waaaay way in advance, but since I have been trying to play catch-up with our fashion posts (we still have a ton of summer-y clothes to share UGH), I never got around to baking.

Well, I was on my favorite website, Pinterest, where I saw the absolute cutest halloween treats. Like to die for! I seriously was considering throwing a halloween party just for myself so that I could make everything. But really, if you’re ever bored and apparently have a ton of free time like me (or just really want to make yourself hungry) go ahead and type in “halloween treats”. I am not taking responsibly for you wanting every dessert under the sun, though ;).

Dry-Rubbed Ribs With A Sweet & Spicy Salsa

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media®, Smithfield® and Farmland®, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #GetUpandGrill #GetFiredUpGrilling

With Summer finally here, it is grilling season and time to fire up the grill! There is no better way to create healthy and easy meals than with your grill.

We love using the grill to cook protein, veggies, and even potatoes or other side dishes.

This past weekend, I made dry-rubbed pork ribs using Farmland Pork Loin Baby-Back Ribs. I found these at Walmart for a great price, too! I had never prepared or cooked ribs before, so I was really excited to make them!
