Daniel Fast Breakfast Burritos

A few days ago we started the three-week Daniel Fast, and it didn’t take us long to tire of oatmeal, or “mush” as my mother-in-law terms it. (Which is the perfect word for it, btw.) I mean, I never liked oatmeal to begin with. Now, without any sweeteners allowed, it is even more disgusting. I’ve tried… Continue reading Daniel Fast Breakfast Burritos

Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies

I’m not the biggest fan of carrot cake. But when I saw these adorable creations, I willfully took up the challenge. And with that little step, I fell in love.

What I really needed was a sweet treat that would fill… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Smoothie

I ate a lot of quinoa and chicken, fruits and veggies. It was great. I also learned some new tricks and alternatives… Continue reading The Secret Six: Lessons learned from the cleanse

Two salads, no lettuce. Pure yum.

Summer is for salads. Even though we here at the Honey Hive eat salads with most dinners, year-round, summer has a special hold on salads. When it’s warm and sunny, nothing satisfies like a fresh, light meal. One thing, however, is for certain: you can’t make the same boring salad again and again and expect… Continue reading Two salads, no lettuce. Pure yum.
