I hope I didn’t offend you with the title, but hopefully, most of you reading this are my age and are realizing how much further we our pushing ourselves to be the least respected as possible. I, myself, am guilty of falling into several (if not all…) of these reasons and that is the main reason WHY I am choosing to write this article. Trust me, there are more than 20 reasons, but for the sake of…
Written from the perspective of a twenty one year old college student who is at a standstill in life, trying to figure out my way and what I truly want in life. But remember, not everyone at this age has it figured out and if they say they do, I call bullshit.
I decided to change the way this blog was going. I decided that instead of just writing about the latest fad diets and workouts, I would…
The days where we had it figured out meant: planning what cartoons to watch on Saturday mornings, eating whatever breakfast we wanted, and playing with our friends without a second thought of how “cool” or “in style” the things we came up with were.
Ah, been nearly a month since I put my last post up hasn’t it? Sorry, I have been quite the busy bee! I’d like to share some of the things that I have been in the process of working on in hopes to maybe inspire you…or just update you :)
I’m taking this blog in a new direction, now…I’m not completely changing it but since it is my blog and all, I have decided to ADD ON to what I already have…
Recently, I’ve been really stressing about my nutrition and my body has suffered greatly from that. Once you focus every amount of energy you have on every single morsel and bit of food you put into your mouth…you become mentally exhausted. Your body notices that, starts stressing, which in turn causes your body to crave different foods and hold on to more body fat…it’s a protection mechanism.
I know, I know..the whole protein thing is a little overdone. Who am I kidding? I still love it. If you don’t, get out. Kidding, just try this recipe though ;)
I have tried and tried to get a recipe that fits my waffle maker, my tastebuds, and my budget. That is a task, lemme just tell you. BUT I DID IT. Pretty proud. It just takes a few recipes, throwing them together, tweaking it, and BAM,…
HA. That’s all I have to say about that new article that came out about why the “fitfam” needs to be stopped. Mm no, the article needs to be stopped. Just because you wrote it in a satirical matter doesn’t justify your untrue allegations, your rude comments, and your body shaming. That must not be a good feeling to have so many negative comments, from people who’s lives have been changed,…
I know that’s not something anyone likes to hear, including myself. But how are we failing ourselves daily and how can we learn to accept who we are as a person, to overcome our weaknesses?
Hi all! I have missed blogging so much. I never understood the potential I could have with my blog and I just let it sit for a few months. I felt defeated, I felt my writing wasn’t up to par. But after a few…
I think I would die if someone acted like they needed me and wanted only me. I just don’t think it’s possible. To feel that someone cared about me as much as I do about them would be the most crazy feeling
Chocolate Supreme Protein Bars
Packed with protein. Supremely chocolatey and nutty. Cleaner than any store-bought protein bar. Perfection.
- 12 scoops chocolate casein protein (you can use whey or soy protein as well, the bars just won’t be as ooey gooey chewy)
- 2 c. chopped almonds
- 2 c. quick cooking rolled oats
- 1 c. peanut butter
- 1/8 c. cinnamon
- 1/8 c. cocoa powder
- 1/8 c. honey
- about 4 c. water
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- 10 oz. dark chocolate
Step 1: The Protein
In a gigantic bowl, mix together protein powder, oats, almonds, cinnamon, and cocoa powder. Start adding water and mixing. Add water just to the point where the entire mixture is moist. (This is where your arm muscles come into play - the whole thing turns into a giant, thick ball of deliciousness.) Add honey and peanut butter, continuing to mix while developing your biceps and delts. Lightly grease 9”x13” pan with coconut oil. Spread protein mixture in pan, pressing it down with fingers. Bake in 350° oven for 5 min.
Step 2: The Topping
While protein mixture is baking, melt 10 oz. chocolate either in microwave or in double boiler.
Step 3: The Masterpiece
Pull pan out of oven and drizzle melted chocolate allllll over. Spread evenly with spatula. Transfer to freezer for 10 min. Pull out and slice into beautiful triangles (or squares if you are normal). Enjoy (in moderation)!!!
