Roast Away

Hi friends!
Happy Friday!
Opps, I just realized I never filled you in on my fun Sweat Pink sister time last weekend and some of the other good things happening.  Last weekends shenanigans will have to wait just a bit, but here are a few fun things that went on this week!

My attempt at getting pics of the super moon!

Enjoyed a little Thanksgiving feast at the kiddos school 🙂
img_7705Finally got in a few workouts after begin sick all last week.

Made some homemade bird feeders for the back yard! Kids had a blast and ate more peanut butter than we used for the feeders! Haha
img_7719Made a hoot of a fruit tray for my small group 🙂

Speaking of fruit, it is national vegan month.  Despite so much focus being on turkey recipes, I have seen a lot of yummy vegan recipes from some of my fellow blogger friends!  (Will post a few soon)
For my meat loving friends, this recipe really was filling, flavorful, and added lots of color to the plate!

I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for our Vegan themed week!

Baked Apple Smoothie 

Happy Friday my friends!
Today is April Fool’s day, and honestly I have never really been a big fan of the day.  Most of the jokes I have experienced have not been that funny.  So today I have something a little different for y’all today!  A delicious recipe with a surprise ingredient that until this week I would have never thought to use in a recipe.
Thanks to my partnership with Fit Approach I have been able to try several different Manitoba Hemp Hearts.  This time I received a few of their new Hemp Heart Bars to try! Can we say yes please!!  I have been a fan of Manitoba Harvest products since I first tried them a few years ago!  These bars are no exception! The bars come in 3 flavors: vanilla, chocolate and apple cinnamon. The bars contains 10 grams of plant-based protein and 10 grams of omegas.  Sounds pretty good right?  On top of that, they taste really great too!  I was able to taste the chocolate and apple cinnamon one, but I am sure the vanilla one is equally yummy!

I enjoyed the chocolate one on a super busy day, and it kept me fueled up and going!  The apple cinnamon one I used as my secret ingredient for the recipe I am sharing today!  I really don’t know how I got the idea, because I have never thought about using a bar in a smoothie before, but it seemed to work well 🙂  It even came out tasting like a dessert, but with a healthy vibe to it 🙂
