I feel like I’m always describing my recipes as “super easy” and “really simple”. Not to sound like a broken record, but this one is easy AND simple. What can I say? I feel like good healthy food doesn’t need to be complicated in order to be delicious. So I’m just going to keep on sharing!

seedy bars

Super Seedy Bars

10 medjool dates (depending on size and moisture)
1/4 c. unsweetened coconut shreds
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/4 c. toasted pumpkin seeds
1/3 c. dried organic cranberries (alternatives:Β raisins or dried blueberries)
2 Tbsp. cacao nibs
2 Tbsp. flax seed
salt to taste

  1. Add pitted dates to a food processor and pulse briefly to break up.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until mixture begins to clump together. (don’t just press ON and let it whirr around, you want the seeds to remain somewhat intact)
  3. Press into a plastic tupperware for easy removal. These bars tend to be easier to cut if they are cold, so chill them for a few hours and then remove to cut.

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!
