When I’m planning for the week I try my best to be realistic & make things easy.
I choose foods I enjoy, while aiming for a variety of foods that are filling as well (𝘐 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘪𝘨𝘩 𝘧𝘪𝘣𝘦𝘳, 𝘩𝘪𝘨𝘩 𝘷𝘰𝘭𝘶𝘮𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘥𝘴, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘳𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘭𝘶𝘥𝘦 𝘢 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘪𝘯 𝘴𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘤𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘩 𝘮𝘦𝘢𝘭).
Stop aiming for perfection and start making a plan for foods that will fit within your lifestyle. (𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘦𝘹𝘢𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦, 𝘐 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘐 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘯𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘢𝘵 𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘴𝘰 𝘐 𝘢𝘭𝘸𝘢𝘺𝘴 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘯 𝘢 𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘴𝘯𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘵𝘰 𝘧𝘪𝘵 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘥𝘢𝘪𝘭𝘺 𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘦 𝘨𝘰𝘢𝘭)

Peanut Butter Cup Yogurt Bites 🍫
- *Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
- *Powdered PB2 (you can substitute with natural peanut butter if you like)
- *Cacao Nibs or Chocolate Chips
Mix your yogurt and PB2 well until combined (if you like things sweeter sprinkle in a little stevia). Spread yogurt mixture into a mini muffin tin. Sprinkle each bite with chocolate chips or cacao nibs and pop into the freezer for 45 minutes or so. You can make as many or as few bites as you like so I didn’t include measurements.
I made a double serving using a 6 oz container of plain yogurt and 2 tbs. PB2. Tag me and share if you try it out!
