Banana Protein Slices

One of my favorite snacks!! Thanks TalesofaKitchen for this awesome idea :)

First, slice a banana in half and top with almond butter or peanut butter.

Second, drizzle with honey.

Third, sprinkle with crushed walnuts, flax seeds, dried berries, and sliced almonds.

Enjoy as a filling snack!

(the healthy fats from the nuts will hold you over longer and slow down breakdown of the banana)

But I’m not a SHAKE person…

But I’m not a shake person…
.
Yea neither was I. And I have to be honest I was a fraud the first year of my business because I didn’t understand the VALUE of what I was putting into my body and didn’t want to “waste” my calories on a drink. I like to EAT.
.
Then I did my research… and made myself a promise. I would drink my shake daily and not worry about the calories. How much weight could I gain from 70 vitamins, minerals and superfoods from the earth. What could be so wrong about adding in probiotics, digestive enzymes, and superfoods that may prevent cancer, can potent tially decrease inflammation, and may help fight heart disease, diabetes, and obesity? What happened?!
.
More energy.
Clearer skin.
Less sickness.
Weight loss.
Fewer cravings.
.
Sure I’ll drink my calories 😉 Not making claims just sharing my experience. You can feel this good too. Message me. 👯📱

Nighttime Snacking

Who struggles with Nighttime Snacking?!!! Here’s the deal…eating at night is NOT a bad thing, but it often can lead to OVEReating if not done right, or if done more out of habit than actual hunger.
 
I know for me this has ALWAYS been a struggle BUT along the way, I’ve developed some tricks that work best for me…
 
Here are some:
1. Drink lots of Water or Sip on Tea (Cinnamon is my fave!)
2. Factor a nighttime snack into your daily calories or portions! This way you won’t do any damage, by adding in a snack at night…you just gotta plan for it!
3. Change up your routine and keep busy. I like to get my workout in at night, and avoid boredom at all costs!
4. Load up on protein and fiber… it’s more filling and if you choose a caesin protein it will slowly digest at night and help with muscle recovery and repair! I love the Performance line recharge, but even plain Greek yogurt will do the trick!
 
What are some of your tricks to avoid the snack monster?!
