You don’t have to eliminate the foods you love in order to reach your body goals.
1. Triple Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats
1 Cup, Unsweetened Cashew Milk
½ cup, Greek Yogurt
A pinch of sea salt
1 cup, Rolled Oats
(2 scoops), Protein Powder (any kind works except Whey) in Chocolate
2 tbsp, Dark Cocoa Powder
1.5 tbsp, Sugar Free Maple Syrup
Suggested toppings: chocolate chips, Greek yogurt, cocoa powder, crushed walnuts or peanut butter
Pour all ingredients together into a medium bowl and mix until fully combined. (There shouldn’t be any clumps! The mixture should be fairly smooth and slightly runny. If not, add more milk.)
Spoon mixture equally into two mason jars and refrigerate overnight.
Enjoy immediately the next morning - adding chocolate chips and any other additional toppings as desired.
2. Health'ier' Snickers Bars
1 Medjool date, pitted (check out my Amazon list to see what I buy)
1.5 tsp crunchy peanut butter (can use smooth if preferred)
1 tbsp melted dark (or semisweet) chocolate
Line a baking sheet or serving plate with parchment paper
Using a sharp knife, slice your dates vertically down the middle (remove the pit if not already pitted), making sure that you don't fully slice to the other side.
Scoop your peanut butter into your date and loosely close again
Freeze for 15-30 minutes, or until dates are solid
In a small bowl, melt chocolate in a microwave in 30-second increments, stirring each time until fully melted
Drop date into bowl and toss around with a fork until all sides are coated
Place chocolate-coated date onto parchment-lined baking sheet
Freeze for another 15-30 minutes, or until dates are solid
Once dates are solid, you can keep them in the freezer or fridge in a storage container for as long as they last (trust me - they won't last long!)
Will share more ideas with you later this week!
