I first saw these “balls” on Jazzythings Instagram feed and since you all know how much I LOVE sweet potatoes – I had to give her little creation a try! Aren’t they cute!? I added some protein powder to them and measured everything out for you to make it more simple. If you’re a fan of sweet potatoes + almond butter, you gotta give these babies a try!
All you need -
- 1 large baked sweet potato (or 2 small sweet potatoes)
- (Optional) 1/2 scoop of protein powder
- 1.5 tbsp almond butter
- 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon

The other part of my delicious breakfast was this colorful omelet, 1 egg/2 whites. Inside went – 1 tsp of pesto, peppers, spinach, mushroom and artichokes.
It was another beautiful day outside so I knocked out a 3 mile run and ended it with a pit stop at the park so Mila could enjoy some time on the baby swing – no photo sorry.
Refueled with a delicious salad that I quickly put together: butter lettuce, veggie pattie, sauteed mushrooms, garbanzo beans, artichokes, feta cheese and topped with Ken’s Light Northern Italian dressing…good, good, good!
Also, threw in a little online shopping today…every day is a great day for shopping! I bought all this for $56 (including tax and free shipping since my purchase was over $50) at Forever 21.
I’m really loving the In Love jammies! I think they are perfect for Valentines for yourself or as a gift!
Perfectly Imperfect – Perfect for me!
Normal is Boring – Yes , it is!
I tried something different for dinner! I’ve never cooked with pork lions before but I couldn’t pass the sale Costco had on them last week so here’s how I cooked my 1st pork! Basically, I just seasoned them with some Extra Spicy Mrs. Dash seasoning & sea salt and sauteed over high heat for 2 minutes on each side to brown them then lowered the heat and cooked slowly for about 5 minutes. I served on a bed of baby spinach, with sauteed mushrooms and sweet potato fries – not bad, not bad at all!
I announced the winner for the Caloric Cuvee Giveaway last night on Facebook. The winner was: Stepanie Karsnia Gibbons.
