Now on to the Sh** Storm that we did at Crossfit!  

I  could actually do this workout with my hurt/heeling foot But I couldn’t run a mile so I had to Row a mile, boo!

I finished in 30:09 and let me tell you that I HATE Toes To Bar.  I just cannot get a rhythm down.  I guess that means I need to do more practicing!

Then I went home to ice my foot :) I’m telling you I cannot sit still!

For Dinner Last Night, the plan was to Make California Quesadillas….well I Made Quesadillas, but I didn’t really use the same ingredients as the recipe stated.

Instead I used chicken, bacon, cheese, tomato, avocado, and onion on Low Carb Tortillas.  YUM.  I think it was the best Quesadilla I’ve ever had to be honest.

I’ll Call it: Semi-California Quesadilla!  Dig in!

And the treat I promised you, finally!

For my Sunday Food Prep this past week I made lots of goodies.  Here is another “protein ball” recipe that I made that can be enjoyed for a snack, or possible dessert!  I added chocolate chips to these which I usually don’t do so I think I will treat them as “a treat.”

Cinnamon Raisin Protein Balls

I love adding protein into my snacks, which you all probably know by now!  I know this looks like a long list of ingredients but I just kept adding wet and dry to get the perfect consistency.  Feel free to add or subtract whatever you like Smile

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp PB2
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped cinnamon almonds
  • 2 tbsp Enjoy Life Mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 4 liquid stevia drops

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Spray hands with non stick cooking spray and roll into balls.  Refrigerate for a few hours and enjoy!

Just FYI- I just bought the stevia drops so I wasn’t sure how sweet they were.  I tried one drop on my tongue after making these balls and boy was it SWEET!    PS. Don’t try them on your tongue!

I could have probably used 1-2 drops instead of 4, but do whatever fits your fancy!  They still tasted good.

    Those protein balls sound delicious! I am so glad that I recently tried (and liked!) raisins again. I used to think that I “hated” them, but I definitely don’t. I would love to make these for snacks :) .
