Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw oats
  • 4 scoops chocolate protein powder (Sunwarrior)
  • 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (more if needed)

Directions

Mix oats and protein powder in a large bowl. *Depending on the type of protein you use and how big you want your serving size, adjust the number of scoops accordingly.

Melt nut butter in the microwave until it becomes soft and easier to mix. Add into bowl.

Add Agave & milk, folding the mixture into each other *If extra scoops of protein were added, add more milk.

Plop mixture onto a non stick backing pan, or glass baking dish, and spread to desired width and thickness with a spoon. Consistency will be very sticky, ooey and gooey…but delicious!

Place in fridge for 1 hour, then cut to desired serving size.

Enjoy! xoxo

Tabata Frostbite Foursome

You know those days when you walk outside, and it’s so cold that you feel like screaming?

That’s how it feels today.

But the best cure for cold weather is making sure our blood is circulating, our muscles are warm, and keeping that heart rate up!

Time Crunch Circuits

We all lead busy lives, but we also all have 10-30 minutes a day to dedicate to exercise.

Since time is money, and in this case, results, I’ve created a total body workout board that can be done anywhere with no equipment necessary.

TIme Crunch Circuit

One circuit is a 5 minute workout, 3 circuits is a 15 minute workout, or all 6 is a butt kicking 30 minute workout.

Do them all at once, or break them up throughout the day.

IT’S UP TO YOU!

Take breaks as you need, and let’s start sweating!
