  • Fudgy Avocado Brownies with Chocolate Fudge Frosting. PLEASE do not let the avocado scare you, these brownies are insanely good...and a lot healthier than your average brownie. They're chocolatey, perfectly sweet, studded with chocolate chunks, and finished with the best chocolate frosting. The avocados only add richness, I promise you don't taste them. And? +gluten-free. Know this sounds too good to be true, but trust me. These are GOOD. Even the brothers said so. That is HUGE. Recipe on HBH today - linked in profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #chocolatelovers

It's healthy. And perfect for this blizzard happening currently outside. Shared the recipe on HBH today (link in profile) and making this on stories real soon :) #hbhhealthyjanuary
  • Creamy (garlic butter) Sun-Dried Tomato Tuscan Chicken and Orzo. Just like your favorite Italian chicken and pasta dinner, but all made in one skillet.

Maybe add some wine too :) ENJOY. ... ... 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil 1 pound chicken breasts 1 tsp each dried oregano + paprika red pepper flakes kosher salt and black pepper 2 tbs butter 1 medium shallot, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated 1 cup dry orzo pasta 1/3 cup dry white wine 1 cup heavy cream (or canned coconut milk) 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese 2 cups fresh baby spinach 1/2 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes, oil drained juice of 1 lemon .. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet set over medium-high heat. Rub the chicken with olive oil, the oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Sear on both sides until golden, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet. Add the butter and shallot, cooking 3 minutes. Add the garlic and orzo, cooking until lightly golden, 2-3 minutes. Add the wine and de-glaze the pan. Add 1 1/2 cups water.
