Tip Tuesday – Beat Belly Bloat

Ever had a period of time where your belly was just so bloated? Sometimes, even when we eat the right things and train regularly, we still get bloated.

I know, it’s not fair!

The good news is these foods may be able to help with that, and they are all very accessible!

Whatcha got in your fridge? Mine is currently rocking (besides an apparent spill….) a green apple, a pink lady apple, Greek Yogurt, some homemade chocolate/avocado bark (sometimes a girl needs to satisfy a sweet tooth, and at least this also has healthy fats!), Peach lemonade, Almond Milk, Peach tea (clearly I love anything Peach…), 2 pears, coconut water, and an Honest Kids pouch (love them….)

Got anything good in yours? I try to keep stuff that is mostly healthy, but can satisfy a craving as well, so I am not tempted to go hit the vending machine, which has not one healthy option in it!

Tasty Thursday – Greek Yogurt Cookie Dough

So, I LOVE when I can find a tasty replacement for an otherwise overly indulgent snack. Don’t get me wrong, I splurge and treat myself here and there because as I have said, I feel like that’s the best way to keep myself from overdoing it. But I ALSO love when I can enjoy something that FEELS super indulgent, but isn’t quite as bad for me.

This is one of those recipes. I don’t think its smart to eat it every day, but boy if it doesn’t hit the spot when you are craving something like this…

Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 5.3 oz Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbs Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Pinch of Salt

Directions:  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and enjoy your cookie dough greek yogurt!

Modifications –

-If you do not like honey, you can substitute 1 tsp of stevia

-You can use vanilla flavored Greek yogurt instead of adding vanilla.  I prefer to use plain Greek yogurt to avoid the sugar content of vanilla flavored Greek yogurt.

I certainly hope you enjoy 🙂
