I decided to do a “WIAW” post.
If you’ve ever wondered what I eat on a daily basis, be curious no more: (This is from last week and, for the record, I didn’t wake up until 12… woops.)Breakfast:  Banana soft serve- 2 small bananas + 1 tbsp wheat germ + 1 scoop protein powder blended
1 coconut oil Reese’s (recipe below)

Snack 1: 
Peanut butter cookie (recipe soon)



Lunch:
Salad- Lettuce, ½ cup pinto beans, ½ cup morningstar farms meat crumbles, ¼ cup shredded cheese, ranch dressing

Snack 2:
Cup of Chai Latte
1 (unpictured) Reese’s cup

Dinner:
Tortilla wrap- ½ sweet potato, lettuce, ½ cup pinto beans, ¼ cup morningstar meat crumbles
Green beans

Snack 3:
1 honey-on-the-bottom greek yogurt
Homemade granola (recipe also coming soon)

So, there ya have it. Now, here’s the Reese’s cup recipe. I like them so much better than the original ones.  They don’t taste processed and maybe knowing that they’re good for me helps the taste, too.
