Sweet & savory PB&C snack

Oh my these will be addicting!  Looking for a simple & delicious snack to throw in your lunch or gym bag for a quick energy boost? I could have used one of these after hot pilates this morning!!
Try these little scoops of heaven!! I used almond butter, a little coconut nectar as sweetener & sprinkled a little Himalayan salt & cacao powder on to give an extra sweet & salty flavor. Enjoy!!!

image

3 tbsp coconut oil, softened
3 tbsp peanut or other nut butter
Drizzle of sweetener (stevia or coco nectar good choices)
Dash of Himalayan salt

Mix all ingredients together until smooth.  Use a tablespoon and scoop into a ball onto wax paper, or put into into mini muffin pan (use liners!) & put in freezer for 20 minutes.
Try not to eat all at once!! Keep in freezer or fridge for delish healthy snack.
Bon appetit!

AM booty call…

No, unfortunately not that kind! Worked my glutes off this morning at P20’s buns & biceps class!!!  Great new studio in midtown Sac with tons of classes to choose from…walking 13 blocks to get there didn’t hurt either! Thanks TK for the inspiration!

And the reward (besides stronger assets), a delish smoothie from Sun & Soil. Love my midtown shops!!

Bottoms up, so to speak! 🙂

The way back to Yarasquin

Had a great time at the Sacramento food film festival

image

with my friend Terri; tonight’s showing was the documentary “the way back to Yarasquin” showing at midtown’s Chocolate fish coffee roasters.  It follows Honduran entrepreneur Mayra Orellana-Powell develop a thriving locally led farming group to import high quality specialty coffee to the US.
We got to sample her coffee & was quite delish! Mayra & the film director were on site for a Q&A.

Support local farmers when we can!

Festival runs thru Sunday so check out one of the films if you can.
Now let’s see if I can sleep after my jolt of joe!

Namaste!

Heaven in a wrapper

Looking for a “healthy” protein bar to get you thru the morning when you don’t have time for a real meal? Well search no more…try Squarebar, an organic protein bar that’s not only organic,  it’s non-GMO verified,  soy and gluten free.  AND for every sale they donate funds to “not for sale”, an organization fighting world-wide human exploitation.
The Cocoa coconut is delish…will be trying their other flavors soon!
They are available at Nugget markets,  Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe & of course Amazon!

This will definitely keep Betty White away…

Happy Monday!

Home sweet Home

Cheers to the weekend!  It was a beautiful start to the morning, attending the Habitat for Humanity home dedication in Sacramento.  This is what it’s all about, seeing a family get the keys to a home that will keep them safe, help them thrive, and pass along hope to future generations.

A new adventure starts today!

Happy Monday!  Day 2 of my blog and have exciting news to share: I’m an official board member for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento!  I am beyond thrilled to be able to take my passion for this organization to another level, serving as an advocate for the amazing work that Habitat does in our community, to share my experiences with helping build homes and hopes for families, and support the organization in its continued growth and community development.

I’ve been on 3 global village builds, and leading a team on another trip to Nicaragua this November!  I’ll share some pics of my adventures but they don’t begin to describe the feeling you get and the emotions you share with the families you are building for, as you are truly changing someone’s life forever.  Check out more about the Global Village builds; they build in 40 countries, so take a trip of a lifetime and a vacation to explore a new part of the world, and you’ll be forever changed!

Here’s just a couple of pics from the all-women’s build last November in Esteli, Nicaragua:
