Chocolate? Strawberries? Chocolate covered strawberries?! Those are my fave… can I eat them every day?
No. I can’t. BUT… I can mimic the flavor in a healthy way!
Also, if you are feeling adventurous, you can melt 1 tsp of coconut oil and mix in 1 scoop of Chocolate Shakeology, let it firm a touch, and then dip your strawberries in that – same taste but way healthier!
Note: do not heat Shakeology – melt the coconut oil and then mix it with the Shakeology powder!
You may have picked up on the fact that coconut is my favorite thing ever by now. I just love it, I love the smell, the flavor, the feelings it elicits… and it’s not terrible for you! 🙂
Who else is a huge fan of coconut here?
It’s Sunday. SUPER BOWL Sunday, to be more precise. And my teams playing today for the right to hoist the Lombardi, so it’s only fitting that my Shakeology is in the spirit!
Bonus points if you pick up on the significance of the measurements *wink*
Who’s watching the game? Who do you want to win?
For me – OBVIOUSLY – Go Patriots Go!
These are especially awesome if you are traveling – a great treat that won’t leave you feeling bloated or suffering energy crashes. I am a HUGE fan of ANYTHING strawberry flavor, and the lemon zest just helps to brighten it up for a lovely combination.
Also great to bring to a party when you want to have a healthier indulgence!
Red… bright, vibrant, red.
There is no shortage of foods falling under the Red umbrella!
Red foods tend to be rich in antioxidants like the carotenoid lycopene; flavonoids like anthocyanins. They offer a rich array of beneficial antioxidants and nutrients.
Are any of your favorites on here? There are, of course, others – quite a variety, actually!
I know it seems like there are more foods to avoid as a Diabetic than there are to enjoy, but like many things, its about balance.
These foods are safe for Diabetics to enjoy, and encouraged!
