~by Nikki Bon-bon madness is catching on. Have you made yours yet? No? Well maybe a nice testimonial from our friend Lucia in Rhode Island might convince you. She says: I love this recipe!

Shaking up Your Salad!

~~posted by Jen So usually I eat a salad with some protein on top for lunch or dinner, but one of my favorite “go to” snacks is veggie sticks with Greek Yogurt Ranch dip.  Let’s face it, you can only eat so much meat and cheese before you start craving “vegabulls”.  Yesterday afternoon I made myself the little crudite snack …

The first bon-bon contender!

~by Nikki From my lovely friend Dee. Remember I told you she had a bit of trouble due to my…erm…technical difficulties? Well her bon-bons still turned out pretty decent.

Banana Bonus: Protein Banana Bon-Bons

~~by Nikki Ok, so here’s the deal. Life has been sort of crazy lately. And I’ve been promising these bon-bon’s FOREVER. You’ve lost faith in the fact that I’ll ever post them. I understand. If I were you, I would have too. So first off let me apologize for that! The hold up is that I don’t have a pic. …

Better’n Peanut Butter?

~ by Nikki I will admit…I was skeptical about this stuff. But when my friend Nessa’s hubby, Brian, picked up a jar of the stuff at Trader Joe’s, I gladly joined (read: forced myself upon) him in giving it a try. The stats on it are pretty good.
