AGood Morning!

A while back I attended Blend Retreat 2013 and I won some great products such as protein bars, protein powders, pre workout drinks, dark chocolate goodies, and coconut oil, etc.  I also won 3 tubs of Nuttzo! which was by far one of my favorites!

I couldn’t believe it because I had been wanting to try this stuff for a very long time.  Needless to say, I was pumped when I got to bring these fantastic goodies home! Well,  Yesterday I shared with you that I enjoyed a few Nuttzo Protein Balls and I promised the recipe would be on the blog today so here it is!

Protein Nuttzo Balls

Ingredients:

  • 3 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used About Time Protein)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (no sugar added)
  • 1/4 cup Nuttzo (NP- No Peanuts)

Mix all ingredients together and roll into balls.  Refrigerate and enjoy!

Since my workout on Saturday where I ripped my hands doing pull ups, I decided I would try to let my hands heal I decided I would do some workouts at home this week.  On Tuesday I did a workout with different exercises, each of which I did 50 reps!  It took me about 30 minutes (The bachelorette that I DVR’d on Monday was on too, if you know what I mean.)  But don’t get me wrong I got my sweat on!

I call this one the Fab 50!

This can easily be done in your living room with NO equipment!

Also while I was at BLEND I met some great people, including some of the hosts who sponsored the retreat.  One of the most fun people I could ever meet was Britney who worked with The Laughing Cow.  Recently Britney sent me a Summer Essential Package with lots of goodies and smart snacks!

Along with three cheese flavors:  light garlic and  herb, light queso fresco and chipotle, and light creamy swiss, they also sent me multigrain wheat things, a water bottle, and a sweet cooler that I can pack my snacks in for the pool 🙂

Be jealous of my water bottle.  I use this thing DAILY!

The Laughing Cow® Community Leaders Sarah Dussault and Tina Haupert came up with two weeks of activities, snacks and tips to reshape your swimsuit season mindset!  I already follow some of these but I also got some other great ideas like adding planks into my workout and aiming to drink a gallon of water.  (The water thing is already part of my getting back on track plan.)

My husband loves the Queso Fresco and I’m thinking I could make a healthy queso dip with it!

And my favorite that Is Cinnamon cream cheese!

I love adding it to my waffle egg sandwiches, and spreading it on toast with bananas or strawberries.

I also love the garlic and herb which I melt into scrambled eggs, and my favorite skinny broccoli and cheese casserole!

Good Morning!

Today I am linking up with Lindsay over at Theleangreenbean who started a Pin It Party for bloggers to have a fun way to get some Pinterest exposure!  Who doesn’t love pinterest anyway!  Here is a fun fact, I have 29 boards, I know this seems like a lot right!?  Well, my mom has 59 boards with all kinds of hobbies, and interests!

Go ahead, Follow me on Pinterest Here!

pin it party Pin It Party

The goal is for bloggers to gather 5 posts they’d like to see on Pinterest. Each post should include a pinnable picture and a short description. After that, visit at least 3 other posts and start pinning!

Here are my 5 Posts :

Number 1:

microwaveable

{Single Serving Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookie}

This healthy dessert will have your mouth watering and craving cookies all week long!!  Good thing this is a healthy version!  I love Nikki’s Coconut Butter because it is tasty and has very little sugar in one serving!

Number 2.

straw shortcake

{Paleo Strawberry Shortcake}

If you love a great summertime dessert like I do, this will surely fit your fancy- (and your waistline)!  With only 8 grams of sugar you cannot go wrong with these.  Top with strawberries and you are good to go!

Number 3. 

travel WOD

{Travel Workouts}

I used most of these workouts when I was recently in Florida.  If you don’t have any equipment I suggest doing a tabata!  I love these because they keep your heart rate up without doing the same thing over and over.

Number 4.

broc cass

{Skinny Broccoli and Cheese Casserole}

This is one of my all time favorite dishes: Broccoli with laughing cow cheese and a crunchy almond topping.  There is not a better side dish according to me 🙂

Number 5.

{What Crossfit Has Taught Me- So Far}

I’ve been doing crossfit for about 4 months now and I have learned alot, and keep learning…Check out this post to see it all 🙂
