Let’s face it, there is never a bad time for a peanut butter jelly. At least not in my house. 🙅
So let me just start off by saying this wasn’t the easiest thing ever. It has taken me months to wrap my head around eating a WHOLE pint of real ice cream. I have had the froyo and greek yogurt kinds before but the health nut inside held me back. Let me just say, I was surely missing out!
Yeah, I could have easily gotten used to just always having frozen yogurt but would that really be a healthy mindset? Never allowing myself to indulge in a real treat because my body was craving it?
You think “eating clean” and watching everything you eat is going to make you super healthy and live forever? What if you lived forever but didn’t enjoy those days? You don’t have to live like that. Treat yourself. Fight for your happiness. Embrace every single day because you truly don’t know what could happen. I would much rather live a life full of happy memorable moments than a long, unfulfilled life full of regrets.
Now lets get down to this flavor… Peanut Butter Half Baked.
I had several reasons for choosing this flavor:
1. I have had the regular half baked and it has become a favorite.
2. This is a limited edition flavor
3. Peanut Butter. Chocolate. Cookie Dough. All in one pint… Yes, yes, hell yes.
When I first opened the lid, a little brownie chunk was waiting on top. I instantly got a whiff of peanut butter and chocolate just like a Reese’s cup. I started salivating….
The base is both peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. It is loaded with chunks of peanut butter cookie dough. Just imagine your favorite peanut butter cookies in cold, doughy chunks. There are also fudgy brownies just like the original half baked. I know right, too good to be true!
I would highly recommend tracking down this flavor before its gone! If you are like me, you are one with peanut butter. ❤
Needless to say, I felt very satisfied after the whole thing. Not guilt, more of a powerful, liberating feeling. I am strong and I will not be afraid of the numbers listed on the side. I woke up the next morning and I was perfectly fine. I did not gain weight nor was I bloated. I had normal hunger cues and went downstairs to make myself a nice breakfast. No exercise or restriction was used to “compensate”. Those are two behaviors proven to create an unhealthy lifestyle both physically and mentally. Instead, I choose to treat myself to ice cream and be happy 🙂
Nothing tastes better than a home made meal. Yeah, you could opt for the frozen meals and fast food meals but what are you missing from that? Love and quality. Exactly the two things packed in this lasagna along with all da cheese❤️
Bake 45 minutes and let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.
So I needed something good for a preworkout meal that wasn’t too filling but enough to give me the carbs and fuel I needed to lift💪
I recently have expanded my squash horizons. I have tried yellow, green, spaghetti, butternut… But not acorn. I spotted it when out shopping with my dad and after hearing many things about it, decided to just buy it, cook it up and give it my own review. ☺️
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Cut squash into 1/2-1 inch thick slices.
- Remove any seeds and strings in the center.
- Toss slices with cinnamon (optional: sweetener or brown sugar)
- Spray both sides with coconut oil.
- Place on greased baking sheet & bake for 20 minutes.
- Flip the rings over and bake another 5-10 minutes.
Numbers. Tiny fragments of measurement that we let control how we live our lives every day. What would it take for all of that to change? How far are we willing to go to achieve what we think is right?
You are NOT the number of:
❤️Social media isn’t REAL life, followers come and go, but the ones that matter will stay forever
💜Friends do the same, a true friend will be there for you no matter what happens. If people can’t see the greatness in you, they aren’t worth your time
💙Grades are important, but they aren’t who you are. They don’t measure how smart you are and doesn’t mean you won’t get better. Persist.👊
💚Some of the happiest people I know aren’t rich. Make the most with what you have and be grateful for having a roof over your head, food to nourish your body and clothes to wear everyday.
Bananas are one of the essentials in my house when it comes to groceries. Whenever we are out of bananas, it gets real and I know I need to make a trip to the store ASAP!
