Gonna Make You Sweat Track Workout

​I felt skippy this morning. I wanted to run, but, I didn’t JUST want to run, so, I upped the ante and threw in a few extras to really get my fitness on. Give it a try and keep a record of your time. Each time you do the workout, try and complete it a little faster than the last time.

A few pointers:

• Try to stay in the outer lanes.

• This is what I mean when I say inchworms:
Stand with feet about hips width distance apart
Hinge forward placing your palms on the ground in front of your feet
Walk your hands out until your body is in a plank position
Now, walk your feet towards your hands keeping your legs as straight as possible
That equals one!

• Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!!

HAVE FUN!!!!!

1 tsp Vanilla
1 heaping Tablespoon Peanut Butter
½ Cup Walnuts – divided

Strawberry Prot-Cake

I’ve been super busy today, and now that I’ve slowed down for a bit, I am in desperate need of a healthy snack. When it’s almost grocery day, the fridge and pantry start to look a little bare, so, here are some things I found to work with: Strawberries about a day away from going bad, an orange, oats & a small container of leftover coconut milk. Let’s make some Strawberry Prot-Cakes!

Topping

1lb Fresh Strawberries (or whatever you have left in your fridge!) – sliced
Juice from one orange

• Combine the sliced Strawberries and the orange juice in a bowl and set in the fridge.

Cream

Can of Coconut Milk – works best if it has been refrigerated at least overnight
1 tsp coconut sugar

• Skim the cream from the top of a can of coconut milk and combine with the coconut sugar. I used my hand mixer with the whisk attachment.

Prot-Cakes

1 Cup Oat Flour (I put the oats I had in my pantry into my NutriBullet to make my oat flour.)
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 Eggs
1/3 Cup Coconut Sugar
1/3 Cup Coconut Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk

• Preheat oven to 350°
• Grease 8×8 pan
• Stir all ingredients together – mix well
• Pour batter into pan and bake 20-25 minutes (until toothpick inserted comes out clean)
• Cool at least 10 minutes before cutting
• Top with Strawberries and a drizzle of the coconut cream
• Enjoy!

Choco-Chili Cookies

​These little cookies certainly hit the spot when you’re craving a sweet snack. You can also skip baking these and have them raw if that’s what you prefer!

Choco-Chili Cookies

2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
½ Cup Oat Flour
⅔ Cup Oats
¼ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Chili or Cayenne Powder
¼ tsp Cinnamon
¼ Cup Coconut Sugar
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter (Make sure to get a brand that only contains peanuts or peanuts & salt. So many have sugar and extra oils that you don’t need!)
¼ Cup Coconut Oil
2 – 3 Tbsp Almond Milk (enough to make the batter moist)
1 tsp Vanilla
¼ Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (Mini works best, and don’t forget to pick one with a high cocoa content. Shoot for as close to 70% or above as possible.)
¼ Cup Chopped Walnuts or Pecans

• Preheat oven to 325°
• Line Cookie Sheet with parchment paper
• Mix all ingredients together until moistened
• Use a small spoon to drop batter into balls on cookie sheet
• Bake for 10 minutes
• Enjoy!
