Check out my valentine!

Check out my valentine!

Valentine’s Day has come and gone but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy sweets any old day, right?!

WRONG! Actually, I’m fighting off a cold right now because I’ve been a bit too lenient with my sugar-free ways, sleep has been elusive at times, etc, etc. Let me just make it known that I have not gotten sick in at least 4 years. Needless to say, I’m pretty bummed right now. But I do think it’s understandable given my lifestyle the past couple weeks.

I’m gargling cayenne and apple cider vinegar, drinking tea, coconut water, and lemon ginger shots, taking my vitamin C, showering with eucalyptus oil…. I’m not going down without a fight! I also haven’t done anything active for two days and I went to bed early. I want the suffering to be as short as possible.

SO… Obviously I am not downing racks of cookies at the moment, but I declare that these lil’ treats are super easy and tasty! Go eat them, you healthy people! Darn you!


Sea Salt Chocolate Chunk Cookies

found this recipe over at Ambitious Kitchen, go check it out!

1 c. nut butter (raw is best since you’ll be roasting these cookies in the oven)
1 bar dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
1/3 c. honey or maple syrup
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. sea salt, plus more to sprinkle

  1. Mix together the wet ingredients (honey, nut butter, egg, and vanilla)until smooth.
  2. Add baking soda and salt. Combine well.
  3. Fold in chocolate chunks.
  4. Using a tablespoon, drop the batter onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt
  6. Bake at 350 for 10 – 12 mins, until golden on bottom. If you make larger cookies (2-3 Tbsp. the bake time is about 15-18 mins.)

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!
