1/2 tsp baking soda

filling:
4 tbsp light cream cheese (room temperature)
4 tbsp sugar-free cool whip (optional)
2 heaping tbsp greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 packet stevia

do this:

combine wet with wet and dry with dry; mix well. in a large mixing bowl, combine the two mixtures until incorporated. for filling- whip everything together until smooth and chill in a large mixing bowl.  make sure the cookies have cooled completely before you make the sammiches!  bake 16 cookies for 10-12 min on 350 deg.

 the tilapia was sautéed in about 2 tbsp of Bragg Liquid Aminos + about 1/4 – 1/2 cup of water, and sprinkled with Sicilian Mc Cormick Perfect Pinch seasoning on top.    you can use low sodium chicken broth too if ya got it.  i paired it with cilantro-lime brown rice, some avocado and a couple of almonds for good fat.

this is one of my absolute fave pre and/or post workout snacks right here..

it’s all over my IG feed, i know.  toasted 100% whole grain whole wheat bread slathered with honey roasted peanut butter and fruit (usually strawberries or bananas).

my goodness that looks so dreamy, right!?!?!?! gaaaaaah.   why do i consume this before (and sometimes after) a workout?

this snack is a winner because it gives a healthy balance of protein (from the peanut butter) and carbs (from the fruit and bread).  this combo ensures your energy levels stay high throughout your workout.  for post-workout, similar deal.  the protein and carbs in this snack helps to replenish and repair glycogen levels after breaking down your muscles from your hardcore workout.  other pre-workout suggestions:

  • pear and pistachios
  • coffee (especially for my early risers)
  • low-fat chocolate milk
  • apple, hardboiled egg, string cheese
  • raw coconut water
  • low-fat cheese on toast
  • protein shake with banana

  1. Hi Le!

    I’m dying to make the oatmeal creme pies but haven’t heard of coconut crystals before (maybe I’ve been living under a rock, haha). Can you please tell me where you purchase this? Does Sprouts carry it? Thanks so much for the advice.
