This is my favorite “indulgent” recipe that’s actually not bad for you at all! I absolutely love these little Chocolate Truffles – well, they are not quite Chocolate Truffles, but I think they are close enough.  They are high protein, low carbohydrate, and full of good energy for pre or post-workout recovery, OR whenever you find […]

I spend A LOT of money on almond butter (well, nut butters in general).  I keep the glass jars after I finish the nut butter, and use them for juicing and storing other liquids.  A few weekends ago I was cleaning out our cupboards and I actually counted the jars ~ I’m embarassed to say […]
