Plain and Simple Protein Bites

Apricots and Almond Butter.  Why didn’t I ever think of this before?  Most often I use dates when I whip up these tasty energizing protein bites, but as I was going through my super food cupboard, I found a surplus of these delicious apricots.  Both dates and apricots are natural sweeteners and they both pair well with almond butter so I decided to play around with my favorite protein bite recipe.

Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie

Yeah for pumpkin season right?  I am seriously loving all the different recipes showing up on Pinterest, blogs, in magazines, and Facebook.  YUM!  Have you made these Pumpkin Spice Protein Bites yet?  I am so addicted.  They’re almost as good as my original Nut Butter Bites.  In fact if you add chocolate chips to this recipe, I think they’d be as good.   You could call them Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Protein Bites!  Yikes, lets move on to my EPIC Pumpkin Spice Smoothie ok!  

Peanut Butter Protein Snack Bars

Pearnt Butter Protein Snack Bars with Nuts

Would you agree that runners need (or love to eat) snacks?  Most importantly, athletes need snacks that are as on-the-go as they are!  But guess what, you don’t need to be a runner or an athlete to enjoy these healthy snacks.

These portable bars combine protein and whole grains to fuel workouts!  Wrap one up – or two – tuck away in your gym bag and you’re good to go.

Three squares a day?  Three meals, two snacks?  Several mini meals a day?  Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Oh Geez?  Don’t ask me please because I am not any of them.  Yes, I know all too well that January is the time for resolutions. I get it, I totally do.  You just signed up for a gym membership?  Good for you.  You swore off carbs, sugar, and all processed foods (aka junk food)?   Even better.

As I mentioned here, I am more into goals vs making New Years Resolutions.  I am not against them and love a fresh start but I am more into living a healthy lifestyle all year round…80/20 you could say.

Creamy Asparagus Soup

I get it, asparagus soup is not all that exciting compared to a cheesy pasta dish, a chocolate treat, or even a fat juicy burger, (sorry no burger as of yet)!  But since I am getting so much flack for not sharing my asparagus soup recipe I promised to blog about weeks ago, I thought I should get busy before I get banned from our next runners group gathering.
