Single Serving PB Cookie

Hoppy Fridayyyyy my little bun buns!

A few of you have asked me for more before and after photos because they help you to stay motivated and on track. I searched my computes for quite some time to find old photos, but noticed that I don’t have too many full body pictures of myself. I was usually very covered up or couldn’t stand photos of myself, so I deleted them. Anyways here is another before and after to show you guys what rabbit food can do for your body! I hope that this can inspire you guys to eat more rabbit food!
Before & After
So last week I said that I was going to go prop shopping for my kitchen/blog photos. That semi-happened, but I literally cannot get away from black and white props! It’s my fav! The Coco Chanel kitchen lives on!

I love love love dessert. I get my sweet tooth from my mom, who can literally eat candy and cookies like there’s no tomorrow and maintain her petite frame. I wasn’t blessed with that same gene, but man I love me some sugaaaa! I’m the kind of person that cannot live without dessert or a little something sweet every day. Instead of traditional store bought cookies loaded with oil, salt, refined sugar, and bad saturated fats (not to mention the totally addictive-cannot-stop-eating-one-after-the-other feeling that comes along with them!), I took to my kitchen to give an old fav a healthy spin! I wanted to make a super clean, healthy, peanut butter cookie that can be enjoyed with coffee and good conversation. Something that feels indulgent and naughty, but is actually quite filling and good for you!

Believe it or not, this recipe only calls for 7 ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already!

Two Ingredient Coconut Macaroons

Congratulations to the winner of my Love True Naturals Beauty Box Giveaway: Melanie H.!

Motivation Monday: “What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.”

My website had some technical difficulties this morning, so I apologize for the inconvenience. I’m so happy it’s back up and running!

I’m obsessed with desserts and after making some toasted coconut this weekend, I though to myself; I NEED to make healthy coconut  macaroons! Most macaroons contain tons of added sugar and even full fat condensed milk, so I took to the kitchen to make a skinny bunny version with only 2 ingredients! Crispy and toasted on the outside with a lightly sweet chewy center!

This recipe is gluten-free, paleo friendly, clean, and made with healthy plant based fats!
If you’re following my Rabbit Food Pyramid: 4 Macaroons (2 Tbsp of shredded coconut) count as 1 serving of healthy plant based fats! Excellent topping for your Banana Nicecream!

Makes 14 macaroons
(about 3.5 servings)

1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 egg white

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk one egg white and then stir into the shredded coconut until well combined. Spray a cooking sheet with nonstick cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray, but any will do). Using a 1/2 Tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop the mixture, press into the spoon (to keep the mixture together), and then place onto the cooking sheet. Once all of the mixture has been scooped into 1/2 Tbsp balls, place cooking sheet in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until they become a light golden brown. If only the bottom halves of macaroons brown, turn the oven to broil and cook for 1 minute until the tops turn golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Note: Watch the macaroons while baking because they tend to burn quickly.

ViSalus Protein Pudding

Congratulations to my DOLE Bananas Peel The Love giveaway winner, Tammy!
Make sure to check your email!

Motivation Monday: “Be strong, you never know who you are inspiring!”

As you guys know, I’ve been traveling a ton lately. Along with traveling comes little time to cook my own meals and unhealthy airport options, so I was excited when ViSalus contacted me and asked if I would like to try their Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake Mix. I’m always searching for the perfect, quick, no hassle  protein shake that actually fills me up for days where I’m short on time. I’m not a huge fan of protein shakes because they never fill me up and I end up snacking times 100 about a half an hour later, but ViSalus actually kept me full until my next meal!

Since I’ve been on the go a lot recently, I’ve been replacing my usual breakfast (or sometimes lunch) with one Vi-shape shake. I throw it in my blender bottle with one cup of almond milk and hop in my car to go to my meetings. I was really surprised by the flavor. While most protein shakes taste chalky, ViSalus‘ Sweet Cream flavor tasted like cake batter! Very pleasantly surprised!

When I took a road trip a few weeks ago to Chicago with my friend (she got a new job and needed a driving buddy!) I took my ViSalus Vi-Shape Mix and a blender bottle. It was easy for me to get some fresh nonfat milk and shake it up each morning! I NEVER skip breakfast, so the Vi-Shape shakes have really helped me when I have little time in the morning. I even created a recipe for Protein Pudding that I can make overnight and have in the fridge to snack on when I get a sweet tooth!

DOLE Peel The Love Party

To continue DOLE Bananas’ initiative to “Peel the Love” I wanted to show just how cool bananas really are. Thanks to DOLE, they sent me some awesome party supplies to host a Peel The Love banana party of my own. Their party kit included DOLE Bananas coupons, DOLE margarita glasses, reusable DOLE grocery bags, a yellow platter, banana USB Drive, and a Yonanas machine for my friends and I to enjoy! My first thought was… how can I show my readers how to throw a FUN healthy food party? Umm, obviously by hosting a DOLE Banana Nicecream party! After all, my mission is to make healthy foods fun, exciting, and always tasty!

I had a few friends over for an afternoon of Banana Nicecream and an endless healthy topping bar.
My Banana Nicecream bar consisted of frozen DOLE Bananas turned into banana nicecream/froyo with the help of Yonanas, and all of these yummy toppings:
Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mango, pineapple, pomegranate seeds, apricot preserve, banana chips, honey roasted sliced almonds, granola, shredded coconut, crushed peanuts, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, chocolate covered sunflower seeds, crushed graham crackers, trail mix, pistachio toffee, cocoa almond butter, peanut butter, honey, agave, and cinnamon! I went a little crazy with my topping selection! Who doesn’t love toppings?

Instead of going to the grocery store for a pint of ice cream each, this is how we will be partying from now on. Bananas. Toppings. Pixar Movie. Best. Night. Ever.
Such a simple but healthy fun party idea for kids and families of all ages!
