Oatmeal Raisin & Apple Sandwich Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin & Apple Sandwich Cookies

Hello fall (insert hand wave). My favorite fall fruit by far is the apple. I’m constantly trying new ways to use apples or reinventing the wheel on classic recipes using apples. This cookie recipe was inspired by an apple crisp believe it or not- apple crisps are incredibly simple to make and contain apples, raisins, oats, and typically a fat (like butter) or a sweetener (like refined sugar). Obviously in the Nutrition Stripped lifestyle, we’re all about whole foods, therefore I’m letting raisins to the sweetening and turning to tahini for some of the fat as a binder. Also, these are naturally gluten free and vegan taboot- a win win for everyone.

Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl

Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl | Nutrition Stripped, smoothie bowl, green smoothie bowl

You’re all going to think I’ve officially gone mental with this recipe, I can already hear my mom telling me “McKel, no one is going to eat that blue stuff!”- all in good fun. This Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl came to me, well on a beautiful blue summer morning a couple weeks ago, hence the name. It’s been really hot here in Nashville so my smoothie bowls are calling MAH name in the mornings for something simple, delicious, nourishing, and cold. This one hits all of those + it incorporates my beloved protein packed spirulina, omega-3 rich chia seeds, and a fiber rich veggie, which you’ll never guess!

Cheezy Broccoli Quinoa Pilaf

Cheezy Broccoli Quinoa Pilaf | Nutrition Stripped

When I was younger, like most children in America, there was some type of dish our parents would cook using carbohydrates loaded with cheese as a way to hide green vegetables… am I right? Fortunately, my family embraced healthy foods and were on the health conscious side, but that didn’t mean I wouldn’t eat “junk”. When I was a teenager learning to cook for myself, mac & cheese with broccoli was my go-to, it was easy, moderately healthy (or so I thought) and kept me feeling good enough to do activities I wanted to all day/night long.
