Gluten Free Lady Protein Power Bites
Some store bought nutrition bars may not be very good quality when it comes to the ingredients and your health and when they are good quality they can be a bit expensive. You’ll want the right stuff for your body! Check out at the ingredient list as well as have a good understanding of why you’re eating one.
People watching their diets, athletes, and those who are constantly eating on the run all have a different purpose in eating a nutrition bar. When you’re out and about and your blood sugar drops eating one of these little power bites is much better than then going through the Drive Thru or grabbing a sugar filled candy bar!
Organic ingredients are not necessary for nutrition bars but we like eating organic whenever possible and that’s usually most of the time.

Gluten Free Vegan Brownies
Brownies made with Black Beans!! Yeah I know beans in brownies may sound weird and even a bit gross to some people huh? One of the ladies at the Curves where I work out swears by them. So I’m making some today for the very first time to test them out on my college boy who is home for spring break! He’s the ultimate brownie taste tester and some what picky one! Not only are these gluten/wheat free, they are also vegan! So you say we can eat brownies that are healthy and taste good too? Yeppers and just think about it, we’re getting protein too with this healthy snack and they are still dark, rich, and fudgy. After all they’re chocolate! And the best part is they’re filled with fiber, omega-3s and tons of other good stuff! Who doesn’t like that? Try this recipe next time you want brownies or looking for a dessert for your next pot luck, party, etc., and remember don’t tell them they are healthy bean brownies! LOL! Watch and see their reaction first before divulging your dirty little secret!
