Dreamy Coconut Macaroon Truffles

Let’s be real, Valentine’s Day needs chocolate. And pasta… And wine. That’s my opinion, but then again, I’m always up for pasta, wine and chocolate. Unfortunately, Valentine’s Day ends up on a Tuesday this year, which means I’ll be celebrating it at the hospital, working in family medicine. <— Not so romantic.  We are planning on going out for a romantic dinner the weekend before though. We’re going to one of our favorite places, which is a cozy Italian restaurant (hello pasta and wine!). I don’t believe that we need a day like Valentine’s Day to spend a romantic evening with our loved one, but honestly, I’m up for any occasion that lets me dress up…

Dark Chocolate Mint Truffles

Happy Friday! Yes, I’m sharing a second recipe this week! I honestly don’t know how I managed to do so, but I’m happy to be sharing these healthy dark chocolate mint truffles with you today. 🙂  My goal is to share two recipes every week until Christmas, so lets see how that goes! Every minute of free time I have from my internship is spent either on this blog or on my workouts. Okay my workouts aren’t that long lately, but they still feel like a chore, which isn’t usually the case. It’s been like this since I started my internship and I don’t know how I’m able to do it. I admit that I try to take about one hour each day to…

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

Life update: we moved in our new apartment! I’m having so much fun emptying boxes, organizing our stuff and decorating the apartment! Yes, I get extremely excited about organization. Sometimes I remind myself of Monica from Friends… I love when everything is in clean. I might be a control freak. I might be. Now I could continue talking about the apartment, but I’ll save that for another time. Instead, let’s get right to the recipe! Today I’m sharing an old favorite of mine. Another peanut butter recipe?!! YES. This might me my last one until next year (I wrote about it in last week’s post), but that could be a good thing. It might force me to try different flavors once in a while… You could say…

No-Bake Salted Caramel Energy Bites

As I’m writing this, I’m in a tent all by myself in the middle of nowhere. This is actually my first time camping alone and I’m quite enjoying it! I drove over 7 hours Tuesday to Quebec and I stayed in Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier for two nights. The first day it was raining, but I went hiking anyways. The clouds were hugging the mountains and it was beautiful! After hiking, I spent some time reading and doing yoga in my big tent, hiding from the rain (I had such a hard time putting up that tent by myself, I’m dreading having to put it up again tonight!) This morning I’m doing a small hike before leaving for Gatineau, where I’ll stay for one night. After…
