Happy Friday, lovely!
After a wild weather week, it looks like things are finally settling down...NOT!!!!
From near 90s to hail to flurries and everything in between, springtime is in full swing here in Texas.
So I’m wanting rosé and coconut milk ice cream one day, then oatmeal and soul-warming soup the next.
And despite the warm days of spring settling in, it still gets refreshingly chilly at night, so I’m not quite ready to say so long to soups just yet.
Which is why I’m so pumped to share this spring-tastic soup with y’all!
It’s creamy yet light, comforting without being heavy.
Plus, it’s loaded with protein, fiber, and TONS of lemony bright flavor.
Oh, and you can take loads of shortcuts to have this bad boy ready in AN HOUR!
Homemade Paleo+Whole 30+Keto chicken soup that won’t weigh ya down? Sounds like its exactly what your weekend needs!

Nothing screams springtime more than flavorful citrus!
From roasted beet with oranges and goat chesee to zesty key lime pie to grapefruit avocado salads, I cannot get enough of that sweet-tart pucker that is so refreshing and welcomed after months of heavy spices, rich sauces, and stick-to-your-ribs meals that are so comforting in those colder months.
But now that things are warming up outside, I’m in the mood for loads of bright, light flavors, aka all the citrus, all the time.
And what better way to start your day than with a big spoonful of cheerful, chipper sunshine in a bowl.
Which is exactly what this granola is.
But Michelle, granola isn’t paleo!
Well, not traditionally, BUT this granola can be made without any oats, thus making it totally compliant with the Paleo Police and perfect for those of y’all that aren’t on the oat train.
So let’s get into this SUPER simple, money-saving, springtastic recipe!
Hey there, Friday!
You’ve made it! Way to go! Some how, it’s nearly April, which means it’s nearly Easter!
And I’m already thinking ahead to those Easter picnics and brunches and post-church lunches that y’all are gonna be enjoying next weekend.
Which is exactly why I’ve created today’s recipe!
It’s a make-ahead side that would be egggggggsellent at your Easter extravaganza!
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself there.
I’ve taken traditional yet delicious deviled eggs and married them with my simple but beloved bacon guacamole to create a creamy, salty, savory bite of brunch perfection.
All without any dairy or gluten.
Wanna impress at your next picnic? This make-ahead, kid-friendly crowd-pleaser will have y’all covered.
Hey there, you little pot of GOLD!
We made it to Friday!

You could buy the ingredients today, make it tomorrow morning, and enjoy a super flavorful, super healthy, and super festive dinner tomorrow night without any green food coloring in sight.
While today’s recipe has NOTHING to do with rainbows or Guinness or leprechauns, it sure is magically delicious.

Happy Friday, pretty pants!
You made it! I made it! We all made it!
If you’re in my area, you may be hours away from Spring Break! Now that I’m a stay at home mom with a kiddo that’s not old enough for school, I exist in this odd world where there is no Spring Break while every day is like Spring Break. Wild, I know.
Whether you’re fortunate enough to have a full week off in the middle of March or not, y’all can all be winners today with this springtastic smoothie bowl!
Cause it’s pretty much like one of my favorite springtime desserts, Mr. Lemon Cheesecake, has been blended up into a fluffy, light, creamy, dreamy smoothie bowl!
And while I know that in itself would taste pretty stinkin magical to blend up actual cheesecake, it would be a calorie and fat bomb that would take my blood sugar on a roller coaster, not to mention bring on some solid tummy bloat to boot.
So instead of compromising my health goals by diving head first into actual cheesecake, I’ve found a way to keep the taste buds happy whie still keeping my health and fitness goals in check.
And this lemon cheesecake smoothie bowl can do just the same for y’all, too!
With just a few ingredients and roughly 2 minutes of your day, you’ll have a fluffy, light bowl of lemony decadence that boasts 2 servings of veggies, protein, and healthy fat.
No bloat. No guilt. No blood sugar crash and burn.
Totally Paleo. Totally Vegan. Totally Whole 30. Totally Keto. AND totally DELICIOUS!
Healthy Happy Texan
