IMG_20130816_112326

TGIF.  why did i even bother setting regular clothes out last night? idk.  it’s just too hot to be cute.  i threw on what i feel most comfy in before hitting the streets- GYM CLOTHES.  knowing good and well i will NOT be seeing the inside of a gym today at that!  the older i get, comfort > style indeed. oatbran banana pancakes and a veggie egg white omelette fueled me up and out the door this morning.

so messing around with this fluffernutter stuff had me creating all kinds of crazy recipes. like this one:

Dark Chocolate Cashew Butter Graham Cracker Fluffernutter Brown Rice Crispy Treats (from memory!)

the stuff:

  • 3 cups gluten-free crispy brown rice
  • 1 cup Barbara’s Snackimal Vanilla Blast cereal
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp light agave nectar (or honey, or maple syrup)
  • 1/2 cup roasted cashew butter (or any creamy raw or roasted nut butter)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips (you can use real/regular choc. chips, YES!)
  • 5 honey graham cracker sheets (enough to cover the surface of the bottom of your pan
  • Fluffernutter (just any plain marshmallow fluff) to top

do this:

  1. combine cereal, syrup, vanilla, brown rice, agave nectar, cashew butter together in a large mixing bowl until incorporated WELL.
  2. spray your rectangle pan  (9 x 13 or something similar)  with no stick cooking spray and line the bottom when 1 layer of the Enjoy Life chips.  set the pan into a heated oven until the chips begin to melt, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. take the pan out and make a flat layer of graham crackers on top of the melted chips.  press down SLIGHTLY until even all the way across.
  4. dump the cereal mixture on top of the graham cracker layer and GENTLY press into an even layer all the way across the pan.
  5. sprinkle a few more Enjoy Life chips on top and put the whole thing in the fridge to set for at least an hour.
  6. cut into squares, (flip some over to see the cool bottom layer if you’re being fancy) and top with a dollop of fluffernutter cream and more crushed graham crackers on each one.

FREAKISHLY GOOD!!!!! please share.

20130815_215833i cut 14 bars outta my rectangle so the stats are for 1.  remember, gluten and/or  dairy free does NOT mean fat or sugar-free yall!  these are a bit indulgent, but definitely better for ya than the packaged stuff.

please check out this eye-opening Q & A with former magazine editor and Senior graphic design and photographer, Jennifer Lau.

you might say crazy photo editing jobs are nothing new…and i agree.  however  this doesn’t just apply to mags and print anymore as social media is a really big deal this day in age.  so before you scroll through pic after pic of ‘perfect’ (filtered AND unfiltered) bodies then advert your eyes to yourself,  remember to:

be confident

 we all have special, unique talents, and most important, FLAWS & SHAPES! accept and love yourself AS YOU ARE; perfectly imperfect.  just like ‘her/him’!

HAPPY FRIDAY.

it's #TreadmilllessTuesday💪😄 #GM we can learn so much from watching babies learn to walk! they are the true definition of 'fall down 7 times, stand up 8.' when we fall off, miss a few workouts, eat the entire pantry in one sitting, lose motivation, etc., ALL IS NOT LOST. it just proves you are human! after getting knocked down, staying down, giving up, and telling ourselves we can't change or do better is the worst thing we can do. and dont let the fear of falling again keep you from even trying!!! when Dego's butt hits the floor he gets frustrated, cries, reaches for me, or throws a tantrum (or all of the above)... but before you know it he is on his way back to his feet and ready to go again like he never fell. can't change the past. keep moving foward. keep going. keep getting back up no matter what. get up over again until you win. do not stop until you have achieved what you set out to do🏃. cardio + abs is all i could squeeze in today so i'm looking forward to hitting the weights tomorrow morning💪 #twinzies #motivationmonday #falloff #fallon #repost respect and admire the characteristics of others!  just don't forget that we ALL have seeds!  the grass is greenest where you water it🌱 #youthinkyouknowbutyouhavenoidea #wateryourgrass i dont know what was meaner, that thunderstorm we got caught in or that wedgie 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 we got it in tho and hope you did too💪! #sundayrunday #fitfoodiele family:
they drive you crazy.
they drive you nuts.
they drive you looney.
BUT- 
they drive you.
#sunday #noweverybodygotosleepsoicangooutsideandrun 🏃✌ puttin' my 20lb babybell to work👶💪!
💙1. i sped these up so i could fit it in the vid- take these suuuuper slow (especially when sitting baby down and rising up w/ baby👍). the slower the better for both parties! you really get to maximize that glute and lower body burn. keep those knees behind those toes and dig your heels into the floor. core tight, back flat.
💙2. tricep presses! keep your elbows narrow and close to your torso while performing the press. 💙3. get in a plié squat position and alternate bouncing baby on your knee while making a big rainbow motion with your upperbody. Dego looooved these as you can see😂😂😂. have FUN and bond with your little one
