Sorry to all my subscriber friends who received an early draft of this post… oops! Here’s the real deal! It’s a SHORT one with a recipe…
Over the weekend I had to create a snack bar for a client and they turned out amazing! SO DELISH that I am sharing them with you today. What luck! Scroll down to see the recipe for Vanilla Fig Bars.
In other news, I felt like a human vacuum cleaner today. I wanted ALL THE FOOD. Lucky me, I was in close proximity to yummies all day. For example, I was hanging at the local whole foods and discovered some tasty morsels called Tanka Bites. They are jerky bites smashed together with cranberries and black pepper. Uh huh. So good.
lesson of the day: Don’t judge yourself when you eat too much. Sometimes there are just too many good things out there. And if you’ve ever made my breakfast sliders, you know what I mean.
Breakfast: 2 hard-boiled eggs, 1/2 banana, couple pieces of shredded chicken
Lunch: Tanka Bites, Better Booch kombucha, 1 Tbsp. coconut butter
Snack: Smoothie (1 banana, 1/2 c. blueberries, handful spinach, 1c. almond milk, cinnamon)
Dinner: 3 Sweet Potato Breakfast Sliders
beverages: decaf almond milk latte, water
other small bites: tuna salad and poblano chicken soup. (I was prepping meals for the week today)
