Fit Friday: Treat-Yo-Self Superfood Cups

Happy Friday friends! Although I’m trying to get back into the healthy swing of things after our vacation, I still want to make sure I leave room for some decadence and have a treat when I have the craving. Instead of throwing it all out the window and giving into just any sweet treat I see, I make it a point to include a little nutrition so I’m not totally blowing it. In preparation for times like these, I like to make treats ahead that I can just grab when the urge strikes. I was looking through my refrigerator for […]

Fit Friday: Simple, Satisfying, Tahini Squares

Happy Friday friends! I am keeping this short and simple today, this is a follow-up to my Instagram stories (if you watched a week or so ago I made these bars on a Friday night and said I would make again & MEASURE so I could tell you the recipe). Well here they are! Honestly these are crazy addictive, a little salty and sweet, the perfect texture and of course involve chocolate. The tahini has protein too which helps you digest slowly and feel satisfied. If you try them let me know what you think! I am having a super […]

Fit Friday: MSF Raw Mocha Almond Squares

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are having a great week and are headed into the weekend feeling accomplished or inspired. I have been plugging away at Pilates training and enjoying walking to classes in this summer-like weather we’ve been having. It’s been pretty warm so I haven’t been wanting to put my oven on to bake anything, but that doesn’t mean my chocolate cravings go away! I experimented with some things I had on hand and ended up with squares that were the perfect amount of chocolatey goodness and super simple to make, so I felt the need to […]

Fit Friday: MSF Peanut Butter Eggs

This weekend we are going to be home on the east coast with my side of the family. Easter was big in our house growing up and I have fond memories of Easter egg hunts, bunny-shaped goodies and the thoughtful Easter baskets Mom put together for us. One thing we could not get enough of in our house (my brothers especially) were the Reese’s peanut butter eggs that are only around this time of year. There is something about them shaped into an egg that just makes them taste different. Am I right? Once I began to get more into […]

Fit Friday: MSF Brownie Batter Balls

Happy Friday!! I feel like celebrating because we all made it through the week after springing forward. I don’t normally complain about the time change but WOAH, this time change did me in. I know I’m not alone because everyone I came in contact with this week has brought it up. Anyways, I relied heavily on matcha lattes, cold brew, and chocolate to get me through. Now on the other side and facing the weekend I thought this was a perfect opportunity to link my second “how to” video on YouTube. Eek! It’s like the scariest thing ever for me […]

Fit Friday: Healthy Halloween Candy Swaps

There is nothing I enjoy more than a good decadent treat. I have a sweet tooth and is something I have had since I can remember (just ask my brothers about my infamous candy-induced belly aches & treat hoarding-so embarrassing!). There is no reason you can’t be healthy and still enjoy the treats you enjoy. All you need is a little bit of tweaking and preparation. With Halloween around the corner, I know I’m looking forward to a comforting fall meal, a scary movie to curl up on the couch with and of course CANDY. There are very few chocolate […]
