The Cravings Almost Got Me

I’m now 36 days into my Whole 60 and have been doing so well. But this past weekend was tough: surrounded by delicious foods and decadent drinks. I was pissed off at my food.

So last night, while gearing up for snowmageddon in Nova Scotia, I made these complian nut butter cups.

I made only a few and they have been serving their purpose. Cocoa, coconut oil, sunflower seed butter. That’s it. Easy peasy! Completely satisfied ( except for the weather. #snowpocalypse )

 

Directions:

Measurements can be estimated.  I made a half dozen cups and used 2 teaspoons of coconut oil, a teaspoon of cocoa, and a another half teaspoon of coconut oil and a tablespoon of sunflower nut butter for the center.

1. Melt coconut oil or butter over a double broiler (you can use a microwave).  Once thoroughly melted, blend in the cocoa until completely smooth as liquid.  Pour half of this into mini muffin tins or ice cube tray and place in the freezer.

2. Melt coconut oil or butter over a double broiler . Once thoroughly melted, blend in the nut butter of choice and stir until completely smooth.  Pour this mixture over the frozen chocolate bottoms and freeze.

3.Re-warm an pour remaining chocolate mixture onto the nut butter cups to complete the third layer.  Freeze.   ENJOY!

 

 

Snow Workout

I’ve clearly been getting some extra cardio and strength workouts in this past week:

Yep - there's a car under there.  MY CAR!

Yep – there’s a car under there. MY CAR!

We had a major blizzard here in Nova Scotia (and other parts of the Maritimes) last weekend.  Obviously I was snowed in for a few days which means I had to cancel my classes and miss the gym.  So, on top of the crazy home workouts I did, I got to shovel a whole lot of snow.  Like, a whole lot.  A.TON!

Fortunately, the majority of the snow in the photo above was cleared by a plow but, as you can see, my car was almost completely buried and digging my way to clear a path to get to the car was a feat in its own.  I felt totally accomplished by the end.
