As you know, I eat really healthy all the time, but as you also know, I LOVE TO EAT. So I have to make sure that I truly enjoy everything I put in my mouth. That is why every week I make a menu from my Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes Book and make sure that all my meals are healthy but delicious.
On the weekends I give myself some slack to have a little fun, but always in moderation. I think most people fail to see results because they eat good and exercise Monday through Friday and on the weekends they eat so poorly that it basically cancels out all the hard work throughout the week.
Now I am not about to waste my time so I make darn sure I am moderate about my “FUN” on the weekends. And healthy snacks like this always help me. All my amazingly yummy and healthy recipes are on My Pinterest Boards. so make sure you are FOLLOWING me on Pinterest. I have been getting so many REPINS, FAVORITES AND LIKES on my Pins of healthy recipes, it makes me so excited so THANK YOU!
If you didn’t know, my weakness is CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. I have to have some every week or I will die…..LOL
Anyhow, lately I have been making so many yummy and healthy snacks that I don’t even feel the need to eat anything bad. Its like I can have my treat and not feel bad about it. I LOVE THAT. On Fridays, that I don’t cook (its our eat out night), I make a few healthy treats and it really helps me stay clean yet enjoy myself.
This healthy bar will help you with that. Now with snacks like the ones I am posting on my blogs all the time, you can feel like you have a treat and you don’t have to feel bad about it.
