We elves try to stick to the four main food groups of candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. • Taking a big slurp of holiday spirit with this Peppermint Mocha Smoothie that tastes just like a Wendy’s frosty! It’s extra creamy and dreamy from avocado, extra nutritious with a handful of spinach and oh so chocolatey with the addition of @slatemilk dark chocolate milk. Pretty sure the last time I had chocolate milk was in elementary school, but this version is ultra filtered so it’s 100% lactose-free and low in sugar! It’s giving me all the playground nostalgia and the espresso version literally breathes new life into my day. You can get 10% off @slatemilk with code “THESHOOKSLIFE10OFF”. • Find the recipe for this healthyish frosty on the blog (link in bio) and add just a drop or two of peppermint extract for some holiday cheer! • • • #buddytheelf #christmasmovies #holidaycheer #candycanes #peppermint #peppermintmocha #christmasspirit #christmastreats #smoothiebowl #smoothierecipes #smoothietime #holidayrecipes #christmasrecipes #healthyisthenewskinny #healthyishappy #goodmoodfood #chocolatelover #chocolatemilk #chocolatemilkshake #frosty #lactosefree #healthybreakfastideas #chocolatedessert #proteinshake #proteinsmoothie #slateup #slatemilk #theshookslife

Ready to take a big 'ole bite out of 2021! • If 2020 could be described as a flavor it would be: A little fishy Saltier than a pile of capers Rawer than red onions Tangier than an inch of cream cheese ...yet delightfully doughy While 2020 may not have been everything but the bagel (understatement of the year), the bright side is enjoying this fishy, salty, raw, tangy and delightfully doughy bagel...without any co-worker side eye. Upside of WFH. • 2020 did bring delight in the simple things though. Like this delectably good bagel that's surprisingly devoid of gluten - yup, you're gonna wanna sink your teeth into these almond flour bagels from @thepagel_ slathered with @kitehillfoods dairy-free chive cream cheese, smoked salmon and capers. Insider tip: code “theshookslife10” gets ya 10% off these bagels to stock in your freezer. • Maybe 2020 was a bit fishy at first, but I kinda liked some of it. Cheers to more good eats and carrying the delight of simpler things into 2021! • • • #bagels #bagelsandwich #bagelsandlox #bagellover #ketobreakfast #ketofriendlyrecipes #lowcarbbreakfast #lowcarbfood #veganbreakfastideas #veganfriendly #grainfree #glutenfreerecipes #glutenfreedairyfree #glutenfreebaking #paleobreakfast #paleodiet #paleorecipes #paleobread #goodmoodfood #wellandgood #austinfood #theshookslife

Restoring my body back to factory settings in 3...2...yum! • It might be getting colder in Austin, but smoothies are never out of season in my house. Especially after what felt like 17 days of Thanksgiving on repeat. Even pie has its limits. And this green smoothie is one that never gets old. I guarantee that every single day you’ll find this refreshing, detoxifying smoothie in my hand whether for breakfast, lunch or a post workout snack. It’s hydrating (romaine is 95% water), creamy (hello avocado) and minty fresh! Not to mention, no bananas, so it’s naturally low in sugar. • If your body needs a factory reset too (no judgment), check out my latest blog (link in bio) for 3 of my favorite smoothie recipes that will restore, rejuvenate and have your tastebuds rejoicing! • • • #smoothierecipes #smoothies #healthysmoothies #superfoodsmoothie #greensmoothie #detoxsmoothie #detoxrecipes #detoxyourbody #detoxification #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedrecipes #eatmoreplants #eatyourveggies #eatpretty #eatbetternotless #eatwellbewell #healthiswealth #reset #lectinfree #healthybreakfastideas #healthybreakfastrecipes #plantbasedbreakfast #smoothietime #smoothiebowl #smoothierecipe #smoothielover #theshookslife

Zuppa Toscana for the Soul: how faux-talians solve all their problems. • I may not be Italian, but I was a waitress at Olive Garden back in the day. And if there's one thing I took away from that college gig, it was a dream - a dream to one day recreate the magic of Zuppa Toscana. Rejoice. Because that day arrived. And my version, is 100% dairy-free, Whole30 compliant and delicious. Plus, the base is equally delicious as a seafood chowder. I like to call that a bonus round...a two-fer, if you will. • If you're equally giddy about the iconic Zuppa Toscana, check my latest blog (link in bio) to recreate this meal of endless soup, salad and breadsticks, any night of the week.

Okay bakers, time to get your focaccia in formation. Cuz this bread slay. • See it. Want it. Dream it. But skip the work hard. That’s for sourdough. This almond flour focaccia comes together in :30 or the time it would take to binge watch another episode of Emily in Paris. I’m still savoring the last two episodes, but can guarantee this focaccia is better than a flaky croissant, even if it is chocolate-filled. Plus it’s low carb, keto and paleo-friendly. • Get those ingredients in formation and find the dEATs on the blog (link in bio - search focaccia). Who slay? You slay. • • • #bakersofinstagram #bakersgonnabake #glutenfreebread #glutenfreelife #glutenfreerecipes #homemadebread #ketobread #paleobread #paleorecipes #paleodiet #ketorecipe #thanksgivingdinner #thanksgivingsides #focaccia #focacciabread #goodmoodfood #eatbetternotless #homebaking #homebaker #breadmaking #breadrecipes #breadlover #eatwellbewell #austinfoodie #texasblogger #wellnessblogger #theshookslife

Chocolate Cake That Can't Be Beet!

Un-Beet-Able Chocolate Cake Makes: 12 cupcakes or 1 loaf Ingredients: 3 medium cooked and peeled beets (about 1 lb) 10 ounces 3 large eggs (I always use Vital Farms pasture-raised eggs*) Neutral oil spray for the pan Directions: Step 1: Heat the oven to 350° F. Brush the cups of a 12-cup muffin tin with vegetable oil. Step 3: Whisk the honey, cacao, almond flour, arrowroot flour, baking powder, and 3/4 teaspoon salt into the cooled beet mixture, then whisk in the eggs till smooth. And that’s how you turn a basic chocolate cake into a magical mystery cake with the benefit of beets.

Too many people look at the holes in their life and miss the glorious bagel right in front of them. • I, on the other hand, am a glass half full kinda gal, an opportunist who doesn't skip a beat when there's a bagel to be eaten. Especially when it's a gluten-free, whole food based option that is lower in carbs and tastes just as good as the OG! Now I'm no New Yorker, so I know that's high praise, but I'm willing to stick my neck out for this recipe - or at least a hand to grab another bagel. They’re made with just a few simple ingredients - including @bobsredmill almond flour and @wholeearthsweetener, so they’re lower in carbs, keto and paleo friendly. In fact, just about everyone should be friendly with these bagels. • Visit the blog (link in bio) to find your favorite version: plain, cinnamon raisin or everyone's favorite - the everything bagel. Move over banana bread. It’s time for bagels to shine.

Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s chocolate. • Got that early onset glow from: 1.) 3-day week, new norm? it’s a wild world, so why not? 2.) visions of vitamin D filled days in Corpus Christi. Road trip > Euro trip. 3.) daily dosing of @trysourse chocolate with collagen! • We’ve been exploring everything Texas with quarantine putting a damper on travel. Next up, a beachy weekend in Corpus Christi. And road trip snacks = chocolate. My latest snack fixation are these chocolates with collagen gifted by @trysourse for glowing skin. Here’s the thing, you only absorb about 20% of nutrients from vitamins. But when the nutrient is part of the food you eat, you absorb up to 90%! Double bonus: get $10 off your order with code SHOOKS10. • Maybe you’re born with it, but...chocolate!

If you don’t have PB&J dripping down your arm, you’re not doing it right. • That’s P for @sunday_provisions pecan butter and J for homemade jam smothered on a paleo cinnamon raisin bagel from @thepagel_. Toasted this baby up until it was all warm, gooey and a hot mess, just how I like it. The keyboard didn’t like the nut butter so much, but who asked my office equipment? • But seriously, these almond flour bagels are my new obsession. They’re gluten-free, vegan, tested keto-friendly and just as good as my homemade version 😯. Fun fact: 70% of the ingredients are resistant starch, which means these won’t spike your blood sugar; the positive nutrients will go straight to your colon to act as a prebiotic and aid digestion. No weird ingredients either. • You can order these babies online from the @thepagel_ website and use code “theshookslife10” for 10% off. You’re welcome 😋. And the homemade jam recipe is on my latest blog post (link in bio). • Rainy day, warm and cozy with my bagelwhich and bulldog.

This may be cheesy, but I think these Parmesan taco shells are grate. • Yes, I think I’m punny and yes I’ll stop with the cheese jokes. But seriously, these crispy taco shells are a 1-ingredient wonder. Yes, 1 ingredient! And yes, it took more than a few tries to perfect these taco shells. But that’s because it took realizing that not perfect, was actually perfect. Here’s how I did ‘em: • Cheesy Taco Nests -Grate cheese of choice (I used Parmesan, but cheddar also crisps nicely). -Place 1/4 C in the center of a skillet over medium heat. Spread out to create a 5-inch circle. -Allow to bubble up for ~2 minutes then carefully use a spatula (this is the hard part) to nest the cheese in between the nooks of an upside down muffin tin to form the shape of a shell. -Allow to cool for a few minutes and harden. -Gawk in amazement at your cheesy work of art! • I loaded mine up with @forceofnaturemeats ground bison seasoned with @sietefoods taco seasoning, crispy romaine, plump cherry tomatoes and diced avo. It’s your work of art though, so choose your own adventure! • #taconight #tacosarelife #tacotime #tacolover #cheeselover #cheesey #cheeseporn #tacoporn #tacobowl #ketodinner #ketomeal #ketofoods #lowcarbdinner #punny #lowcarbmeal #glutenfreefood #glutenfreemeals #dinnertonight #dinnerideas #goodmoodfood #eatwellbewell #eatwhatyoulove #eattherainbow #quarantinecooking #austinfoodie #austinbloggers #theshookslife
