Feeling better, getting my groove back. It’s so funny whenever I think of a title for a post one word will trigger a song. Today it’s groove. Random, yes. Welcome to my brain. Maybe I’ll start a game, name the artist who sang that song. Anyone know this one?
This weekend involved a simple equation, increased energy + sun= run. With the help of Rock My Run’s Banging Beats mix, I actually completed 6 miles . I will not tell you my pace since it is embarrassingly slow. I also welcomed back the carb cravings this weekend hehe. Solution: sweet healthy dip.
Remember when I posted yummy Chick Bars, the perfect post workout snack? If not click here to refresh your noggin. Today I made a similar recipe but did not make it into bars. Chocolate Covered Katie’s Blondie Dip, still a great refueling snack or dessert, now in spoon form. I made a few changes, just for variety. What remains the same is how quick and easy it is to make! You have carbs, protein, healthy Omegas from the Chia Seeds, and take care of a sweet craving all in one shot. Only if life were so simple.
1 1/2 cups Garbanzo beans (AKA 1 can chickpeas)
1/8 Tsp salt
1/8 Tsp baking soda
2 Tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup plus 3 Tbsp almond milk
1 tsp Stevia
1 Tbsp Chia seeds
1 Tbsp Sugar free instant vanilla pudding (just throw the powder right in)
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
Place all ingredients in a medium size bowl and process with a hand mixer. I sprinkled some dried blueberries on top. Easy and delicious!
