1/2 cup silvered almonds
1/2 cup of pecans
1/4 cup almond butter (Grass Fed - I use KerryGold)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup of almond meal (pulse 1/4 cup of almonds to make this)
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of agave nectar (or honey)
1 large egg
3-5 pieces of crispy bacon crumbled up (Optional, I love bacon!)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup of fresh blueberries or cranberries (or both!)
I love having these around for an "on-the-go" snack! Make these to replace pre-packaged breakfast/snack bars that you buy!
Mix all that goodness together and spread it out on a cookie pan - stick it in the oven at 400 and cook till the edges look crispy (about 10-15 min)
cut it with a pizza cutter while it is still hot and set them out to cool!more

I used our beloved Instant Pot to make this! I love ours because it cuts down the cooking time on most of our recipes. So today when the hubby got sick, I was able to whip up this soup in an hour!
The most time was spent prepping. I had to peel and dice the squash, which I won't lie about..it was a pain in the butt! However, now that it's over it was TOTALLY...more

One of the hardest foods for me to let go of when I changed my nutritional choices was pasta. I loved any pasta that was covered in sauce -a bonus for being stuffed with cheese!
I would try and convince myself that if I would work out more, or go on an extra run that I could have some and not mess with my PCOS... bottom line my body does not work well with processed foods. I would always feel tired, bloated, and depressed for days after having pasta. I started experimenting with alternatives that would help fulfill my cravings and spaghetti squash was perfect!
Ok, so now that we are all craving pasta let me share my favorite replacement recipe, I promise you it will fulfill your pasta cravings!

Years ago I would use days like this as an excuse to eat and drink what ever I wanted. The result of that was always the same - swollen legs, dry skin, bloating and days of poor sleep. Can anyone else relate?!
Now, I approach these days much differently. I prep healthy snacks and meals, hydrate with water and electrolytes like my life depends on it, and walk and stretch every chance I get. Now after long flights I typically feel fine besides a bit of jet lag from time changes.
These almond coconut snack bars are one of my favorite snacks to pack. They are...more
