I’m gonna share with you one of my favorite guiltless cookie recipes! One of the things I love about Keto Snaps is that they are meant to be just one part of a greater dessert. They are delicious on their own, but when added to things such as healthy ice cream or peanut butter, it can make it a flavor blast for your tastebuds!
Cacao Peanut Butter Snaps’wiches
-10 cacao Keto-Snaps
-57 grams (⅓ cup) peanut butter chips
1. Place baking chips in microwavable safe bowl. Place in microwave for 20-30 seconds or until melted. You can also melt chips on stove top.
2. Spread approximately 1 Tbsp melted peanut butter chips onto the bottom of one cookie and sandwich with another.
3. Place sandwiched Keto-Snaps on a plate and place in fridge for 10 minutes to allow PB spread to set.
This week I was so honored and excited to meet the team at Chomps at Expo West! I found out about them last year and finally was able to meet them face-to-face. The team was just as amazing as their product!
Chomps has some of my favorite on-the-go protein. They have amazing flavors from the original beef and turkey, to fun flavors such as jalepeno beef and and salt and pepper venison!
I recommend 20% protein in my diet, 30% carbs and 50% fat. I’m super picky when it comes to my protein intake though as I like to eat as clean as possible. My go-to, is Chomps as they have all natural, non-GMO, 100% grass-fed.
Even my kids love it! I slip this in their lunches since it’s so easy to pack and even on their way to surf practice for Parker or trampoline camp for Owen, it gives them the energy they need to perform their best and have fun!
Special shout out to Jenny Chen, one of the amazing team members at Chomps, who introduced me to Chomps, thank you so much for changing protein for me!

This past week I went to Expo West and it was amazing! I am always so excited since as long as I can remember, on my birthday, March 6th, I get to celebrate at a Natural Products Expo!
I get to visit all my favorite companies and taste their new products and even find new ones that align with my diet, and of course are delicious!
This year, I was so lucky to meet with one of my new favorite cheesy treats, Parm Crisps. You guys, this snack is gluten free and fully made of cheese. It pairs so well with hummus, as a garnish on top of a salad for a little added crunch, or even just plain!
They made these amazingly convenient on the go bags that have the perfect amount of cheesy goodness and it fills me up until my next main meal!
The Jalepeno featured in my picture was my favorite, until I tried the pizza flavor… can you believe that they made pizza healthy and on the go?!

I know. You’re overwhelmed, stressed, trying to lose weight, and fit in work and exercise, so maybe sex is the last thing on your mind. You are not alone. Depression, anxiety, medications, health issues, and depleted sex hormones reduce desire in the bedroom for most people. Long be- fore menopause, around 40 percent of women experience a reduced libido. Usually, we only think of testosterone as the sex hormone in men, but women have testosterone, too. The good news is that certain foods will ramp up your libido by increasing your blood flow, balancing and increasing sex hormones, and improving desire-building endorphin highs in your brain and body. Below are your best bets.
Pumpkin Seeds: According to Dr. Mehmet Oz, zinc is the ultimate sex mineral because it helps to boost levels of testosterone (it’s not just for us guys, ladies).
Greens: Magnesium, a mineral, increases blood flow by reducing inflammation in blood vessels (giving them more room to better circulate blood).
Green Tea: I’ve talked a lot about tea, but there’s something special about the green stuff. Green tea is especially rich in compounds called catechins, which have other belly- and body-fat-burning abilities, but they also boost desire by promoting blood flow down there.
Seafood: Doesn’t sound very sexy, does it? But omega-3 fatty acids increase your heart health and raise dopamine levels in your brain. The result is better circulation and blood flow, which can trigger arousal.
Dark Chocolate: There’s a reason chocolate became a gift given before amorous activity. Dark chocolate (70 percent or more cocoa) increases dopamine levels (your pleasure chemical), and this yummy stuff also opens up blood vessels and improves blood flow.
Garlic: This pungent little bulb has mighty sex powers. Garlic
contains a compound that thins your blood, which improves
There are so many stressors in our world that lead to it being difficult for us to fall asleep. Insomnia results in people being having difficulty falling asleep or waking up often during the night and having difficulty falling back asleep.
Intermittent fasting can help with insomnia in many ways. I know it’s difficult sometimes to avoid late night snacking, but if you do, it puts your body in an active state of digestion and can create problems with sleeping.
Time restricted eating can strengthen our Circadian clocks, this has a huge influence on our sleep. When the circadian clock is stronger and more in sync, our bodies have an easier time falling asleep and staying asleep once asleep.
