This one is a surefire craving killer.

Everyone knows that chocolate and peanut butter are the perfect combo. And while most people will likely be reaching for those leftover Reese’s Easter Eggs this week, YOU don’t have to! In fact, take the next 30 seconds to walk over to your Easter candy stash, pick it up, and toss in the trash. Feel better? Me too.

Now, head to your fridge and pull out these simple ingredients to make the yummiest, healthy shake on Earth.

If you like, you can add your favorite protein powder for post-workout recovery. For a superfood boost, add greens powder. For the peanut-avoiders, swap out the peanut butter for a paleo-friendly nut butter! Sunbutter works the best as a peanut butter “taste” alternative!

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!
