Full honesty, I love my smoothies and am amazed at how much energy Shakeology has given me, so I am not willing to compromise my health by giving up my daily shake, but, every once in a while I just don’t feel like drinking my daily dose of nutrition. So, Shakeology bites to the rescue! These have done wonders for my sweet tooth and are a great snack to prep for the week and take on the go. Try them once and you’ll make them weekly!
- 3 Scoops of Chocolate Shakeology
- 1 tbs. natural almond butter
- 3 tbs. powdered peanut butter (I used PB2)
- 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk (canned and refrigerated for at least 3 hours before use)
- 1/2 cup un-sweetened almond or coconut milk
- 2 tbs. cinnamon
- In a mixing bowl mix together your Shakeology and 2 tbs. of powdered peanut butter.
- Slowly mash in the coconut milk and and almond butter.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon and mix in your almond milk until you have a batter like consistency (it looks like brownie batter)
- On a paper plate combine your 2 tbs. of cinnamon and remaining 1 tbs. of PB2.
- Roll your dough into balls and then roll into the cinnamon peanut butter mixture.
- Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with oil and refrigerate 1-2 hours before eating.
- Store in the refrigerator for weekly snacks.
Makes 3-4 servings or around 15 bites total

This is not something I typically talk about but one thing I struggle with is Adrenal Fatigue. Ever since recovering from my eating disorder, I’ve battled constant fatigue and am always looking for ways to pick up my energy a bit.
Most recently I’ve been reading, The Adrenal Reset Diet, and wanted to give it a try with my meal plan this week. The basis behind it has to do with timing of carbohydrate intake and is based on this outline:
Meal One: One Protein, One Fat, One Carb
Meal Two: One Protein, One Fat, Two Carbs
Meal Three: One Protein, One Fat, Three Carbs
Anyone else struggle with Adrenal Fatigue?? Send me a message and let’s connect! We’ll tackle it together!
Sometimes a failed cooking attempt turns out okay. I was trying my best to make coconut snack bites for snacks during the week, and to up my healthy fats, but was having no luck. I didn’t want to waste all of my efforts so I ended up spreading the mixture out on a baking sheet and came out with pretty awesome Paleo granola.
Keep in mind granola is a nutrient dense food as it is, so use it sparingly. This is a dense servings of healthy fats and does have some sugar so use in moderation. It’s great for a sweet tooth fix though sprinkled on top of a smoothie or fresh berries and whipped coconut milk. Enjoy!
