Raw Nutella Bars


2013/12/27 by nikkiledford

The commercials for Ferrero Rocher have always made me laugh. First of all, you have NO IDEA what the commercials are about in the beginning… Is it a car commercial? Alcohol? Perfume?! Nope. It’s a chocolate ball. Secondly, the actors talk about this ball of chocolate like it’s the crowning achievement of civilized humanity. Descriptors like “luxurious” and “elegant”. And finally, they insist that your holiday is incomplete without them. Serious question; When in your life have you ever associated chocolate and hazelnuts with the holidays? Am I wrong here? It makes no sense! Is it just because you can stack the balls into the shape of a tree? Cause once a few people help themselves, it no longer looks like a tree. Ferrero Rocher people… I don’t understand you.

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!
