This life changing bread recipe has been floating around pinterest and other blogs. I had not heard of it until my friend emailed me the original blog post from My New Roots. After reading through the recipe, I knew I had to try it.
Most mornings I have time to make myself breakfast. I love to sit, relax , drink my tea and update myself on anything that happened in the world while I was sleeping. Not every morning is so glorious. On those mornings I have to grab and go. I can not function on an empty stomach. Here are my go to, on the go, breakfast ideas:
1. I always pair a fruit with a nut. I never do just a fruit. I like a banana or apple and a handful of almonds or walnuts.
2. KIND bars! LOVE LOVE LOVE. Especially the NUTS & SPICES. I grab that along with a banana.
3. While I am getting ready I put a piece of bread in the toaster, spread some nut butter on it, slice some apples and make an on-the-go sandwich.
Quick healthy options right there for you. What is your on the go meal?
Have you tried KIND bars? Which bar is your favorite?!
This past weekend I had two wedding celebrations. I wanted to share this maxi dress with you because it is just AWESOME. If you are looking for a summery fun maxi dress, check this one out! AND its on SALE! :) AND how gorgeous is the bride!!!!
The back is the best part!
My earrings: I searched far and wide for the earrings that I am wearing. I really like the look of BIG earrings but can not wear them. They are usually heavy and I feel like they are pulling my ear lobes off and making my earring hole SO big. I am always on the look out for BIG but LIGHT earrings! I found some that are great. Hoop-la! Their color selection is AWESOME and their airy-ness is the best. I wore purple ones above, and black ones below.
Stay tuned for your weekly workout! Will post tomorrow or Friday! Wishing you SWEET SWEAT! XO
I love Lara Bars, not only because of their sweet goodness, but also because they are made from about 4 ingredients. I thought, if Lara can make these bars... so can I (and so can you!)
For my "Lauren bars" I used:
1/2 C figs
1/4 C walnuts
1/4 C almonds
1 tbsp chia seeds
In a blender (I used a mini food processor by Proctor Silex) throw in all the nuts. Make sure not to turn the nuts into a powder. You want to have some chunks in there to add texture to your bar. Set the nuts aside.
Next: Throw the dried fruit into your blender. Blend until they form a paste like this:
I used a vegetable cutting board and laid out my dried fruit paste. I took the chia seeds and added it to the top.
After mixing the chia seeds and paste by hand, I threw in my nuts.
Mix nuts and paste together. I always loved playing with my food. You can make a mohawk if you would like.
Divide mixture into 8 snack balls. Throw the balls in a plastic bag and store in your fridge.
Each ball will contain a little over 100 calories (~108) and provide you with a sweet and nutritious filled snack that will give you your afternoon boost, or that pre workout lift. You can get creative with the mixtures and add different dried fruit for the paste, or nuts for the filler. Let me know if you try it, and how it comes out! Did you add something different?
