I was having a conversation with my friend Donna - who I see when I go to the dentist. Yes, we have been there many times due to kids and their cavities. We were both lamenting about our Sunday eating habits. Every single day of the week - we both confessed that we are healthy eaters. Mindful of what we are putting in to our mouths. However, when Sunday rolls around - it's almost like - FORGET ABOUT IT! All healthy mindful nutritious eating out the window. Why?
I am discovering tricks to keep my eating in check - I do need to be able to have a little sweet something. Our bodies - know this- seek out sugar. But I don't want to go and grab a handful of some sweet candy - it's not worth it. I work out too hard not to see results! And its tough as we age - I'm not kidding - to be able to keep our bodies healthy and strong. Here is a recipe for a quick treat using my chocolate Shakeology.
My ingredients: Oates, honey, almond butter, and Chocolate Shakeology. I decided to make some energy balls that are delicious and easy to make - and only four ingredients.
Chocolate Shakeology No Bakes
1 scoop of Chocolate or Vanilla Shakeology
1 Heaping TBSP of almond butter
1 cup of Oates
2 TBSPS (or a tad more) of Honey or Agave Nectar
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix all ingredients
you should be able to make 1 inch balls from this and get between 8 to 10 balls
I made this last Sunday for my son and daughter who both needed a little sweet fix. They still talk about it - and wonder - when I'm going to make them again. I love that it has all healthy ingredients -and I had all the ingredients sitting in my pantry.
Now I don't feel like Sundays are going to completely throw me off my game. And I can share with my kids.
