Bars are your best bet for protein on the go: no messy powders to mix, cups to fumble with or questions about how much you’re getting. They come in every flavor imaginable, and the price is usually right. But there is one drawback. Next time you unwrap a store bought bar, take a look at the label. Chances are, you can’t pronounce all the ingredient names. And if you try to count them? It’s pretty likely you’ll reach 10, if not 15 or 20.
Peanut butter lovers: brace yourselves! Inside these crispy corn tortillas is a thick layer of your favorite spread, warmed for irresistible, gooey creaminess and spiced just slightly with chipotle powder to complement the nutty flavor. Serve with sliced bananas for lunch, or get creative with toppings for a truly different dessert!
Saturday mornings wouldn’t be the same without pancakes! This weekend, skip the super-sweet syrup and serve these crispy, rich Coconut Corn Cakes with a side of your favorite nut butter. No milk or eggs are needed, and a scoop of protein powder added to the batter makes a delicious and healthy breakfast treat.

I’m one of those people who has an amazing memory when it comes to the exact number of calories and grams of fat in just about any consumable item — from carrot cake to cough drops — and I’m always on the lookout for foods that taste yummy but aren’t super-fattening.
This is why I always have a jar of Bell Plantation’s PB2 within arm’s reach– at home, in my desk drawer at work…even in my car.
Here are some questions I never asked random people when I was pregnant:
“Do I look like I’m gaining the correct amount of weight?”
“Can you tell whether it’s a boy or a girl judging by the size of my butt?”
“Do you approve of my decision not to be a stay-at-home mom after this child is born?” Read more →
