My new snack addiction…


20140715-114611-42371955.jpg
Ok.. Snacking isn’t always bad but I LOVE chips. I love the saltiness and the crunch – yes, I plead guilty. Recently we went to Costco (we love that place) and found these chips made from chickpea flour. We didn’t open them for a week or so and when we did – we nearly ate the entire bag!!!!! Gluten free, vegan, dairy free, lightly salted… Done and done. Try them. Get them. But beware… You might get addicted to them too!!

PB2… How I love thee!


If you love peanut butter, you have no excuse NOT to get it. It’s basically all natural peanut butter – without the oil! Straight up ground peanuts – 85% less fat, protein packed and amazing!!

I could seriously eat this out of the packaging. But what I do is kind of odd – but it works!

I brew my coffee (12oz).
Add 1 teaspoon of local honey.
I add ice.
Transfer iced coffee into my shaker.
Add one scoop of protein powder (Currently using Raw Fit Protein).
Add 2 tablespoons of PB2 chocolate (made with real, delicious cocoa).
Sh-sh-sh-shhhhhake it.

It’s amazing. Do it. I strongly suggest it. This way, you’re drinking one beverage only, and getting your caffeine intake as well as your meal replacement!

Yum!

Got Bread?


20140408-063914.jpg

I am really not one to eat bread often. Especially white bread. Normally, I’ll go for wheat or just no bread at all. Fortunately I’m not a huge sandwich person! Although there is King’s Hawaiian Sliced Bread and it is DANGEROUS! I could eat a sandwich for every meal if it was good for me. So what I saying is this, if you’re not diabetic and do not have Celiac’s, indulge! It’s amazing. Have a slice for me!
