How is it Already Friday!!!

Anthony and I have been on a "cleanse" for the last 3 weeks and today marks the first day of eating normal.  The cleanse consisted of fruits, vegetables, fish, chicken, brown rice, beans and the Standard Process Cleanse Supplements.  I am happy to announce that my jeans fit better!!!  
It is amazing to me how much I think about BREAD, CHOCOLATE, and CHEESE!
I am on the look out for new and healthy snacks, while we stick close to our new healthy way of eating.  
   I found a very yummy and quite healthy recipe that I wanted to share

I made a few minor adjustments to suit what I already had in my pantry :) 

No Bake Energy Bites
(Power Balls: is what I think I will call them)

1 Cup Oatmeal
1 Cup Coconut Flakes
1/2 Cup Almond meal
 (original recipe called for ground flax seed)
1/3 Cup chopped dark chocolate
(original recipe called for mini chocolate chips)
1/3 Cup Honey
1/2 Peanut Butter
1/2 Tsp Vanilla

Mix everything together, Chill in the refrigerator, Roll into balls and enjoy!
Keep in Refrigerator for up to 1 week.  


  1. Ok.... I want to hear more about this cleanse. Would you do a post (or e-mail me) with what your days meal plan looked like? Super excited!!!

  2. You have a very sweet blog! I, too, just started of luck and I can't wait to try some of these recipes...yummo!

  3. Protein Balls are another great snack and source of nutrients
    1 cup chocolate protein powder
    1 cup oats
    1 cup creamy peanut butter (all natural is better)
    1/2 cup honey

    Roll them in small balls for a quick snack or pick me up after a workout!

    Hope you enjoy. :)

    Love that you are doing a cleanse. We take for a cleanse. Amazing how much our body holds onto and does digest until we cleanse it. Helps all our systems and makes you not only lose weight but feel better and have more energy!
