Caught in a rush? Check out this Super Bowl!

Ok, so I’m not talking about Super Bowl Sunday this weekend.  I do, however, highly recommend meal prepping this bowl (or even your own fun bowl concoction) if you find yourself pressed for time.  This bowl is packed with nutrients like potassium, fiber, and vitamins A, C and E just to name a few! Simply put all the ingredients below together in a bowl and you have yourself a tasty meal.

The list above makes 4 servings! Each bowl we made got:    ½ an avocado  ½ a mango  4 oz. of chicken  1 serving of brown rice  a bit of cilantro to top it off

Paleo, gluten free, makes 18 cookies

 

Did you know that Canadians spend on average 60 min/day eating while the French spend 133 min? Take the chance to slow down and enjoy these with an afternoon coffee. They make a great snack when you’re tempted to reach for a sugary treat.  They will last up to 3 days if stored in a container OR you can put them in the freezer and eat them at your leisure!

 

You’ll need:

 2 c. almond flour

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ c sugar free maple syrup (we bought some from Zehrs)

¼ c melted coconut oil

2 tsp vanilla

 

Easier than Ikea Directions:

 1.     Preheat over to 350 degrees

2.     Mix the almond flour and baking soda in a medium size bowl

3.     Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until the mixture becomes thick

4.     Roll into small balls and place on a cookie sheet greased with coconut oil or spray

5.     Make small dent in each cookie and fill with a bit of jam (we picked raspberry!)

6.     Bake in the oven for 14 min or until edges are golden brown

Enjoy!
