Peanut Butter Flax Protein Bites

Here is a quick snack for you and something I've probably made and posted a hundred times before this. These bites are made with protein powder that is sweetened with stevia so these are pretty much sugar-free, full of fiber and healthy fat. But before I go ahead with the recipe, I wanted to say that my Munch and Meditate Supperclub tickets are on sale for April 28th. Come and meet me as I lead you in a guided meditation that focuses on grounding and renewal (springtime!) and then serve you a complimentary welcome drink of prosecco and a 3 course meal. Want in? Buy tickets at! Now for this wonderful snack recipe....

These are great to have before a run or as a to-go snack if you are running around and won't have time to sit down for a meal. They are full of healthy, natural peanut butter and flaxseed meal along with a yummy plant-based protein (use whichever kind you wish). I whipped these up in my food processor and had a snack in under 5 minutes.

Sorry I haven't posted a recipe in a while, I've been so busy with my yoga studio and now I'm training for the NYC marathon. I just did the NYC half marathon, where I PRed even though I was sort of injured and was putting running on the back burner. I ended up doing the run at the last minute and I was so happy I did because it was my fastest half marathon and it was just the most incredible feeling. And true to last year, the weather was so freaking cold that I don't think I warmed up until Mile 6. Running through Times Square and over the Manhattan bridge...well there is just nothing like it. I love running so much, I've run more miles as a vegan than at any other time in my life so DON'T let anyone tell you a vegan diet isn't adequate for survival!! *Raising hand* I'm alive and I run alot and lift weights and I'm healthy.

Ok, so I think you will love these bites. Search oats above to see other sweet treats that I've made with oats.

2 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of natural peanut butter, salted
1 heaping tbsp of flaxseed meal
1 scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder
A punch of salt
A pinch of cinnamon

Put everything in your food processor and process until it's a cookie dough consistency. Roll into small bites and store in an airtight container in the fridge. * is very easy to eat a ton of these at once so pace yourself 😃

I'm off for a run soon. I love running in NYC, there is never a dull moment!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
