If you haven’t guessed it from 2432048320984 social media posts: THANKSGIVING is around the corner.

Well, not around the corner actually- it’s like, EER tomorrow-ish.

Anyway, you know I like to leave everything to the last-minute which is totally why I texted my friend, Neda, & asked her ( well, begged her ) for some of her fiber-filled recipes!

We decided we would do a swap.

Before we get into that I feel like we need to do the back story. The back story IS, I actually met Neda on Instagram which is just fucking nuts if you think about it, right? We “met” & liked each other immediately. So one day I’m in New York, I have like 5 seconds left before my flight & I decide to grab a salad at a local hot spot, Cipriani, and maybe a Bellini if I have time? I mean apparently Hemingway loved a Bellini from Cipriani…SOOOOooo.

Ok, I’m in my sweat suit ( no literally, sweat suit ), hair up, no makeup, rags & all and I hear: “LAURYN?”

WELL SHIT, IT’S NEDA!

Naturally, she’s glowing, perfect & adorable while drinking a holiday gluten-free vodka with cucumber, mint, & jalapeno ( am I telling the story right, Neda? Help me out, if not? ). So she proceeds to insist Michael & I sit down, hang out for a bit- YES PLZ. You know I like to chill. Of course he’s freaking because our flight is soon but I’m chill, relaxed, & about it.

As you can imagine, while I’m smiling because her energy is vibey & CHILL & VERY convincing, Michael is nervous about his flight time that’s 8384208 hours away. But who cares! He has a Bellini. He’s hanging out with Neda! He has a cucumber salad! All is good.

AND WAIT, you know I love a convincing woman.

Ideally one that can convince Michael. I mean any girl who can convince Michael to sit down & enjoy a cucumber salad while his flight is near is a down-ass chick in my book.

FOR THE RECORD: NEDA GOT HIM TO SIT DOWN & DRINK A BELLINI WHICH IS BIG.

Mission accomplished. 

ANYWAY.

So we lounge a bit, hang out, & I just FALL IN LOVE WITH NEDA. She’s perfect.

( We may or may not have spotted Leo…; ) is that another blog post? I feel it could be?…He was wearing a hat very low. ANYWAY! ).

Her blog is SICK AS SHIT, she’s beautiful, AND SHE IS NICE! But BOY is she a good healthy chef. I feel like I need to pick her brain for hours.

POINT: I shared my favorite Thanksgiving apple cider Brussels on her blog & SHE shared her gluten-free apple crumble on The Skinny Confidential. That’s right, get excited. Here’s what you HAVE to make for Thanksgiving, K? TA-DA:

Neda’s Gluten-Free Apple Crumble

FILLING

+ 1 tbsp coconut oil, for greasing ramekins

+ 1 1/2 organic Fuji apples, cut into small pieces

+ 1-2 tbsp raw honey

+ 1 tsp cinnamon

CRUMBLE

+ 1/4 cup gluten-free oats

+ 1 GG cracker, chopped

+ 1/4 cup raw walnuts, chopped

+ 1/3 cup raw coconut oil, melted

+ 1 tbsp coconut sugar

+ directions: pre-heat oven to 350 F & lightly grease ramekins. In mixing bowl, combine apples, honey and cinnamon. Distribute evenly on bottom of ramekins. Combine all the crumble ingredients in a bowl & stir until mixed.

Spread crumble mixture over apples and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden. Garnish with coconut yogurt or vanilla ice cream. Even mint leaves are fun here too. Enjoy! Serves 4…yes please!

A little Instagram announcement this weekend that I thought I’d share on the blog: GUYS!! I WANT TO SEE WHAT YOU’RE ALL ABOUT. So everyday I am going to follow at least 20 of you on Instagram. Each day tell me something cool about yourself on my latest post so I can easily find you. Can’t wait to see your life/kids/businesses/blogs/etc. SO far I AM LOVING following some of you- what a talented (PRETTY!) community.

Looking so forward to getting to know some of you better.

AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE THIS SKINNY CRUMBLE! IT IS SO GOOD, I could not stop eating it.

Be sure to check out Healthy With Nedi’s blog where she made my apple cider Brussels sprouts ( which I totally WILL be making on IG Stories AGAIN ). They also include pomegranate seeds which I feel like between apple cider & pomegranate, you should be sold on! Great way to get out of family dynamics too- just make delicious Brussels.

OK change of subject here: Neda’s INSTA is lit too: @healthywithnedi.

Hope you all are having a fabulous week; stay tuned for a hair tutorial & MORE wedding stuff. LOL. Get excited.

Happy Tuesday.

x, lauryn

+ be sure to listen to the latest podcast with PureWow founder, Mary-Kate McGrath. She’s such a badass BABE. I KIND OF DIE for her & want to go to brunch with her immediately. We talk Instagram, business tips, & making time for yourself.

++ OH UM, for the best THANKSGIVING dessert: YOU HAVE TO MAKE MY OG FAMOUS SKINNY PUMPKIN ROLL. IT’S SO GOOD.
