Chai Spiced Almond Butter

Happy Easter weekend! I finally had some time to get back in the kitchen today and baked through all the top recipes on my to-do list, and then some.

It is a two-week challenge consisting of a meal plan made up of three meals and two snacks … Continue reading Clean Eating Part 1: Breakfast
