OKAY.  So heres the thing. I love my snacks, I gotta have my snacks.  I can’t go in between meals and not have something else to look forward to eat, or munch on.   The thing with me is I like EASY & EFFICIENT.  You may not know this, but I feel super lazy when it comes to making things for myself.  I mean, lets get real… who has the time to be making food all day? NOT ME.  The reason I say this is because you can ALSO eat super healthy without having to be preparing 24/7.  I like to make mine ahead of time, plus have a protein bar every now and then.  Here are my 3 GO TO’s that I reach for.

1. RXBARS.  NO BS BARS- I love these bars because I know whats in them & know that I’m not getting anything added, like extra sugars.  You always want to read labels and make sure that the ingredients are readable.  If it starts to get to long, and you don’t know whats what.  My guess is, it’s probably not the most nutritious choice in the world.  Another thing you could do is look up the ingredient, if you really want to get into it.  But with that said, It’s not like I deprive myself from things either.  I’ll have another protein bar, like ONE bars, or FIT JOY bars.  They aren’t that bad every once in a while.  But just keep in mind of the extra sugars. 

DARK CHOCOLATE CHUNKS– To add to my number one, I also like to eat just plain dark chocolate chunks.  SO good, and it helps me feel satisfied when I’m wanting something sweet.  I’ll have a tbsp usually.   It has 7 fats, 4 protein, and 14 carbs.



2. EGG WHITE CAKES– I did a post on these a while back, but I want to bring it to your attention again.  If you have a hard time hitting protein, you gotta make these!  I pre-make them every week, and put them in the fridge and just heat it up when I’m ready to eat one.  I’ll pair it with avocado and some cholula sauce!  Go check it out.



3. PROTEIN TRUFFLES– I also did a post on these as well, but they need your attention again, because they’re bomb! If you missed the post, there you go.  These are also high in protein.  Think a homemade protein bar, but 10x better and more fresh.  They’re so delicious.  I pre-make these as well for a whole week, and they’re easy to grab and go.  If you just set aside an hour to prep your food for the week, you are set for the entire week.  All you have to do is grab and go!  So worth it. SO go check out those recipes!

Hope you enjoy!  Let me know how you like them.  Have a great weekend.

I was testing out a way I could make something delicious and with chocolate, so these protein cakes are simply amazing!  You will be so surprised how good they’re and most importantly you will feel guilt free.   They are packed with protein.  

So just look at it this way, you are basically making your own clean protein bar from home.  No added sugars!

Makes 3.

1/2 cup Almond Flour

1 cup Almond Milk 

1 tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder

2 drops Coconut Stevia

1 Ounce Dark Chocolate Discs

3 Cupcake Cups

Coconut oil spray or Light Olive Oil Spray

Optional: 1 Tbsp Coconut shreds


  • Mix all ingredients together.  If you need to add more almond milk for consistency, then you can.  Should be creamy.  
  • Spray each cup with oil, then pour mix into each cup evenly.  Place in freezer for a couple minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in microwave or stove top until creamy.  
  • Take the protein cakes out, and pour 1/2 tbsp onto each protein cake. (Optional: sprinkle coconut shreds on each cake)
  • Place the cakes back into the freezer for 10-15 mins.  


They should be a little hard, if you want to eat them like a bar of chocolate, then peel back the cup and enjoy! 

If you want to eat them a little softer, place in the fridge for a 3-5 minutes before eating.  Will be slightly sticky, so you can eat with a fork if you would like.  

SO good!
