Raw Cranberry Orange Bars


2014/04/02 by nikkiledford

I know everyone LOVES larabars because they are so clean! While they are definitely a Clean Plate approved purchase, there’s no reason you can’t just make your own (save money)!

I’ve made my fair share of “larabar” knock-offs and original flavors!

Ginger Date Bars

Apple Pie Bars

Chocolate Cherry Bites 

Chocolate Minty Bites

Chocolate “PB” Balls 

Lemon Apple Bars

Raw Nutella Bars


Good for after a workout or in kid’s lunches! (or hungry husband’s)

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 🥑🍋🌶🥒
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. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ 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!
