Recipe: Protein Balls

I use this recipe as my afternoon snack most of the time.

They help whenever I’m feeling “hangry.”

Protein Balls

1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 honey
3 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder

The original recipe called for 3 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips as well, but I feel that, with the chocolate protein powder, it wasn’t necessary.

I scoop these out (about a tablespoon size) onto a piece of parchment paper-lined tupperware and refrigerate.

Then, enjoy one a day for about a week!

(P.S. This is a hubby-friendly snack too!)

Recipe: Shakeo Mug Cake

After the girls are in bed, Eric and I like to watch TV (or blog!) on the couch and have dessert (isn’t this what ALL parents do after the kids are asleep?!)

Eric is partial to chocolate chip cookies from Publix and a glass of milk, but that’s not exactly on the 21-Day Fix or any of my other clean eating plans.

Enter the Shakeo Mug Cake! It has been a lifesaver!

This is one of my favorite Shakeology recipes!

I use this on days I haven’t yet gotten my shake in yet (I know, crazy!)

And it feels like a cheat/ dessert, because it’s chocolate but it’s NOT!

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it has pretty much been my favorite. I tweaked it a bit (no salt, etc.) and have been enjoying it ever since!
