I am the foodie behind BOWL OBSESSED residing in Fort Worth, TX. Yes, I love eating out of bowls but more importantly filling my bowl with wholesome, vibrant recipes! My goal is to offer inspiration and have my audience counting colors rather than calories. My passion is developing healthy recipes and sharing them with my Bowl Obsessed community.

I love using my platform to educate others about real food and the benefits of health from the inside-out, as it has done wonders for me.

My audience trusts my authenticity and story-telling style and I love any opportunity I can get to work with other like-minded brands, partner with them and share their stories as well.

My current interests are all things health and wellness, networking, traveling and love attending events! I would love to expand more into traveling and potentially some media appearances/hosting events.

Early detection is 🔑 . I got the call on January 17th that I have #breastcancer - 6 months after Brent’s urgent open heart surgery. (Yes, seriously 🤦🏻‍♀️ and also WTF?!) . The ‘C’ word is scary, but I am SO lucky to have caught it early via annual mammogram. . -December 2021 Mammogram - Clean -December 2022 Mammogram - ‘Suspicious findings’ followed up with a 2nd mammogram, sonogram, a biopsy, THEN the call came. . *Please note* I had zero, I mean ZERO symptoms. I could not and still do not feel a lump/bump. It’s internal, only my mammogram tipped us off! . I have Mucinous Carcenomia (grade 1/stage 1) my Dr. specifically called it rare unicorn cancer - 🦄 great. . I do not let myself google it, but what I know is this: Mucinous Carcinoma of the breast is a relatively rare subtype of breast cancer, accounting for about 2% of all breast carcinomas. Basically tumors of the breast typically found in women over age 75, apparently. I just turned 39. . GOODNEWS = Stage one! 🥳 This is because of early detection. . My plan is: 1️⃣Surgery to remove cancer 2/15 2️⃣Radiation (5-6 weeks M-F, after recovery from surgery. Mid-March) 3️⃣Oncology (Estrogen/Hormone blockers - I still have a lot to learn, but this is bc Estrogen apparently feeds my type of cancer - awesome) . NO CHEMO!! Thank god 🥳🥳 . I’m mostly concerned about estrogen blockers, but I will get through it and cross that bridge when it’s time. . I’ve had 3 weeks to wrap my brain around my diagnosis as much as possible and overall feeling positive and grateful for early stages. 🙏💕 . I hope by sharing I can shed some light on the importance of early detection, being proactive with your health and getting screened, and going REGULARLY! . I do plan to share my journey in @bowlobsessed stories and I appreciate all the love and support from my friends, family, new friends, and this amazing community. . Some fantastic resources I’ve been loving: Of course @susangkomen (so amazing, I have been looking online and listening to podcasts) @samanthaharristv (I love her blog ‘gotta make lemonade’ and her positivity/health tips as a cancer survivor. . Thank you all! 💕❌⭕️

Four Ingredient Raw Cookie Dough Bites

You can use any flour that you want, I just haven’t tried it with other flour yet. I used Julie’s Real Coconut Vanilla Bean Cashew Butter Heat the maple syrup on the stove-top on medium-high until it begins to bubble; remove from heat and whisk in the nut butter. Let the dough chill in the fridge for 30 mins, then add in chocolate chips; Press the chilled dough into a lined loaf pan. I just love mini chocolate chips, but you could add sprinkles, nuts, cookie crumbles, or even your favorite candy bar chopped all up in there.

No Bake Turmeric Latte Tahini Bombs

They take a total of about 10 minutes and require minimal ingredients, not to mention my favorite part: they require absolutely no baking at all! You can store them in your fridge or freezer so you have a quick and tasty snack or something to satisfy that sweet tooth. You can store them in your fridge or freezer so you have a quick and tasty snack on hand. Set them in the fridge on a lined baking sheet for an hour before adding chocolate drizzle.

Savory and delicious for Fall

n’t know how many times I’ve made a pumpkin recipe and had a little bit of pumpkin leftover. The recipe just calls for 1/4 cup of canned pumpkin, which makes it the perfect way to use up a bit of extra pumpkin that’s often leftover during Fall baking season. It’s perfect to mix in warm oats, pancakes, waffles, toast, even blended in coffee. I chose to use Truly Grass-fed Butter for this recipe and absolutely loved it!

Grain-free Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips

Alrighty, folks, this Grain-free Pumpkin Bread NEEDS to be on your Fall-baking list! Besides all the health benefits of pumpkin, THIS grain-free pumpkin bread is also dairy-free if that’s important to you, ( minus the chocolate chips; be sure to adjust accordingly). Firstly, you need is 2 mixing bowls for mixing the wet and dry ingredients separately, secondly, fold in the chocolate chips at the end before pouring into the loaf pan to bake. Transfer batter to the prepared loaf pan, sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top of the batter.
