Key Lime Coconut Popsicles

OMG y’all it is hot right now in Texas. Like hell on earth, the devil is my next door neighbor hot. Don’t get me wrong it’s ALWAYS hot in Texas, but the summer is especially hellish.

21 Days to a New You!

Ok guys PSA time:
Let’s talk detox teas. I’m just going to say it, it’s a lie. There is no such thing as a magical tea that’s going to detox your entire body and help you lose weight and KEEP IT OFF! Of course drinking tea for a week will help you lose water weight, but that’s a quick fix. Not a long-term, healthy option. You know what is going to help you lose weight? Exercise and eating clean. Hard work and dedication. Drinking plenty of water and cutting out sugar. Having a support system available to motivate you, answer questions, and encourage you to keep going. That’s how you get LONG-LASTING results.

OMG you guys I made these nut and seed bars and they are soo good!! They are the perfect snack, well-rounded snack. These are a great pre-workout snack to give you the energy you need. Honestly, I’ve been struggling hard with late night snacking and I wanted something I could enjoy that was good for me. These satisfy my sweet and salty cravings perfectly! They are so yummy I just had to share with you guys.
