The Easiest, #CleanEating Approved Breakfast You’ll Ever Make

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I’m not a big fan of breakfast. There’s just something about it that rubs me the wrong way.

It also probably doesn’t help that I really hate eggs. 

That being said though, I do love my antioxidant-rich pomegranate avocado toast and the occasional batch of banana pancakes. I recently whipped up a few fluffy, vegan (minus the honey I drizzled on top) ‘cakes, and they were so good that I knew I just HAD to share with you guys. 

Oh, and I topped them with my favorite 3-ingredient raspberry chia jam. So yes, I’m definitely a breakfast eater when I make these babies. 

Beauty Food: Antioxidant-Rich Pomegranate Avocado Toast

2017 is bringing big changes to The Blonde Chiffon, mainly in the form of several new series. I’m a huge fan of them (obviously), and that’s mostly because I feel that they can make a brand more consistent and cohesive.

My goal in creating a few new series on TBC this year is that they will help you see that all of the content  is interrelated, connecting back to one simple idea: bettering yourself and your self-image through a fashion and beauty-focused lens. There’s way too many girls that struggle to keep up with the latest trends, which can often take a toll on their budget, time, bodies, self-confidence, etc. 

Easy and Healthy Breakfast Burrito Bowl that Will Keep You Fueled All Day

Most people who know me well know that I am not a breakfast girl. In fact, I pretty much hate it. Pancakes, French toast, sausage, scrambled eggs, you name it…Thanks but no thanks. I have to be either A) in a very odd mood, B) on vacation somewhere that the food is totally baller, or C) hungry AF, if I’m even going to fathom eating something close to breakfast food. However, we’ve all heard it time and time again. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I’ve also heard that it’s best to “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and supper like a pauper.” AKA, you want to eat the most substantial foods early on in the day. This gives you energy and assures that you’ll have time to burn off some of those heavier foods before bedtime. I’m actually very interested in this king, prince, pauper…

How to Have the Perfect Hassle-Free Date Night In

All opinions are mine alone. #MyWaytoVeg #CollectiveBias It’s officially that time of the year, in New York at least, where it’s no longer super desirable to venture outside anymore. In fact, I’m sitting here writing this post in a furry robe, under a furry blanket, while it low key blizzards outside (before Thanksgiving). This of course shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a night out, but sometimes staying in can be a good option. In fact, I’m thinking it’s a great option right now.  I also love having a classic date night in when the weather’s not crazy. As much fun as it is to go to different shows and try new restaurants, nothing truly beats the comfort of home. Right?  Whether you’re trying to avoid the cold weather like me, or simply seeking an uncomplicated evening with your…

15 Fall Recipes You Need to Try This Weekend

Can I be honest? One of my favorite things about fall is… The food.  Shocker, I know.  There really is nothing like a hot slice of apple pie & vanilla ice cream on a cold fall day though, is there? And don’t even get me started on Thanksgiving. Nobody ever says it’s their favorite holiday, but we all enjoy it when it comes around as if it were.  So, in the spirit of fall (it officially began yesterday, FYI), I’ve rounded up 15 kicka** autumn-inspired recipes that I’m dying to make this weekend. Of course I won’t get around to all of them, but the season’s just begun ya know? I’ll surely be chipping away at this list for the next few months, to the insane pleasure of all of my roommates and Richard (because not all of these recipes are super healthy, I’ll definitely be sharing.)  The first items on…

9 Healthy Foods to Eat on a Budget

As the semester wraps up, I’ve started auditing my experience of living in an apartment, and truly on my own, for the first time. Of course living in a dorm is essentially on your own as well, since your parents aren’t there, but apartment living is a whole new ball game…because you have to feed yourself. This is a bittersweet realization. You don’t have to survive the dining halls anymore, but you do have to survive your own cooking. Ha! There’s been some ups (learning to cook chicken) and downs (almost setting grilled cheese on fire), but I’ve come a long way since the beginning of the school year. Cooking aside, one thing that I actually feel like I’ve mastered is healthy living on a college girl’s budget. I see SO many college girls living off of frozen meals and hot pockets, but you don’t have to be one of those…

How to Eat Healthy When You’re Pressed for Time

All opinions are mine alone. #NourishWhatMatters #CollectiveBias Despite the popular opinion that college students have too much free time (hi Dad), those of us actually in that boat know that that’s anything but true. The same goes for anyone in the working world… Or wait, actually anyone EVER. Somehow, no matter where we are in life (at least for most of us), there’s just not enough hours in the day. For me, every Thursday last semester, my schedule was so crazy that I was out of my apartment from 7:45 in the morning until that exact same time in the evening. 12 hours of running around! No complaints, BUT…the worst part? Dinner. Who really wants to make dinner at 8 p.m. after a 12 hour day? I sure didn’t. So, in walks Lean Cuisine, totally saving my life. Not only…
