Quick & Easy Pecan Pie Espresso Shakeology Balls

Shakeology Energy BitesWho doesn’t like a quick and easy snack? I will warn you though. While this snack is easy to make and is considered “clean,” it is NOT something that’s low calorie that you just want to sit back and eat a ton of if you’re trying to lose weight. Those calories do tend to add up!

Another thing…
I do quick and easy, so that’s what I’m going to share here. I just dump stuff into my food processor and wait until the texture is just right.

Right? And who likes to wash all those dishes anyway??? Continue reading

Clean Eating & Low-Cal Hot Chocolate

With a thicker consistency than almond milk and a richer flavor, I find cashew milk a much better direct swap for good ole regular milk.

So… snuggle in, and enjoy this decadent low-cal goodness! Continue reading

We’re in an era where we’re constantly on-the-go.  We’re continually running from one thing to the next or working crazy long hours at our job.  It’s TOUGH to stay on top of eating clean and consuming healthy snacks throughout the day, because we just don’t want to, or simply can’t take the extra time to, plan and prepare ahead.

In honor of ALL the crazy busies out there, I’ve put together a list of grab and go items that come in single servings that you can grab from your local grocery store, Trader Joes, or a wholesale store like Costco.

PS.  If you’re a fan of the 21 Day Fix, in order to simplify it for you, I’m also including the container color to head each category.
