During workout Post workout with my favorite meal!
Nothing like a great workout and finishing off with a meal to give me my daily dose of dense nutrition!! As I am in a rush, it is so nice to be able to have my healthy meal ready in 2 minutes and run out the door! On top of that, peanut butter cheesecake for breakfast is a bonus and I don’t have to feel guilty!! WOOP WOOP!!
So here you go…. the recipe everyone is waiting for!!!
- 8 OUNCES ICE
- 4 OUNCES ALMOND MILK OR WATER

If you are going back and forth of WHY Shakeology is the best choice for you, please understand the high quality that is in EVERY shake! This is your chance to make your meals more convenient, while getting the dense nutrition that you do not receive in your “every day”meals! Time to make your nutrition and health your priority!

Protein Energy Bars with PB2
scoop vanilla SHAKEOLOGY
Natural peanut butter
banana until pudding consistency
oats, protein powder, PB2, Peanut butter, and raw honey in to bowl with banana
a few sprinkles on top for a prettier look J
these bars in the freezer and when taking them out, I let thaw for 5 min before
eating! So good and is a great protein to carb ratio! This will keep your
energy level consistent without crashing!
I am always loving to make new recipes, especially for protein and energy bars, because going to find them at the store can be difficult. There are too many ingredients that we do not know what they are

I do feel like I need to improve since the past few days, I have already fallen off a little. I am OK saying this because, YES I am A Beach Body Coach, BUT I am also HUMAN!! So, my goal for next week, is to have 1 off meal, and stay on track with ALL of my meals! Now, I will be at the beach, BUT I will be grocery shopping tomorrow for everything I need, so I have NO excuses!! Also, I will keep up with my water intake!! Water is the only liquid I intake, so I do not have issues with that, it is just the amount that I need, sometimes I forget to drink.. I usually do really well when I set myself up to drink 16 oz water 30 min before I eat.. This helps me get the amount of water in I need, along with helping me stay full for longer!
Excited to start WEEK 2 tomorrow!!!

natural peanut butter
(1 tbsp flax (ground) + 3 tbsp water)
chocolate chip cookies
chick peas, peanut butter, agave nectar, flax egg, and baking powder in a food
in chocolate chips
into small cookies and bake at 350 degrees!!
Healthy For Kids!!
parents, we all want to set good examples for our children to live a healthy
lifestyle right?? As a mommy and health and fitness lover, I try to teach my
kids how to eat healthy, and live healthy.. No, I do not only feed my children
clean fresh food, but I do watch what I give them and I will say, they are into
the habit of eating that way now. Just
like any adult, after eating and living a certain way for so long, it becomes
second nature and easy to follow.
are many options to choose from when it comes to selecting food for your
children to eat… fruit snacks, crackers, cookies, etc. I know, my son loves
snacks, so for me as his mommy, I need to find snacks that he will enjoy, but
at the same time are good for him!! My other son is only 11 months, so he eats
what I make!! J
here it is.. When grocery shopping, just like when I am shopping for myself, I
veggies and fruits (carrots, green beans, strawberries, grapes, bananas, watermelon,
I go for Organic, or low in sugar (fruit snacks)- Instead of letting my kids
snack on Oreos or candy, I will chose the low fat chocolate animal
crackers. They are not the best, but
also not the worst!
to add protein into each meal- String Cheese is an easy and great snack. Peanut butter is easily thrown on a fruit or
even on whole wheat crackers or bread for a snack!! Yogurt is another great
snack/breakfast that my kids love and yes, I go for the Greek and add fresh
fruit or even a little agave nectar/pure maple syrup!!
I actually go for the v8 splash with servings of veggies and mix half with
water. Also I use flavored water-the
kids do not know the difference!!
shopping for breads, I chose 100%whole wheat crackers/bread. These carbs are not refined and are easily
easy snacks my kids love:
cakes with natural peanut butter
with peanut butter
drops- place small drops of yogurt on wax paper and freeze it (great treat)
cheese and fresh fruit
- Whole wheat
wrap with sliced banana and natural peanut butter
with peanut butter and raisins on top (ants on a log)
Can you tell we are peanut butter fans?!?! HAHA yes, he got it from his momma!!
Just remember, if you teach your children at an early age, they will assume the role to be healthy because they learn and follow their role models- PARENTS!!!! 🙂
