Minty Chocolate Bites

Today’s post will be short and sweet. My reason for brevity is two-fold:

1. I’ve got a couple of longer posts coming up.
2. I’m about to head out for a surf and the tide waits for no one.

Go make these. You’ll be happy.

Minty Chocolate Bites

2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes
3/4 c. almond meal (I didn’t use almond flour but I bet it would work just the same)
10-15 medjool dates (depending on how dry/moist they are)
1/4 – 1/3 c. cocoa powder (I used some delicious Valrohna cocoa powder, but you could use raw cacao or just your box o’ Hershey’s in the pantry)
1 tsp. peppermint oil (from trader joes… any peppermint extract will do)
dash of sea salt

  1. In a food processor, add almond meal and coconut. Process until sandy in texture.
  2. Add dates, cocoa, salt and peppermint.
  3. Process until sticky.
  4. Roll into balls or press into a pan to cut into bars.

    The Minty Chocolate Bites are fantastic!!! So easy to make (I have a VitMix). I also made them with vanilla instead of the mint (for those who don’t like mint) and also just as good.
    Thanks!!!!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
.
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
