I have been road tripping a lot this summer with my family. Generally, I pack snacks for the ride but on this particular trip, I forgot my snack stash.
And I was really hungry.
I knew there was a convenience store right off the exit, so I decided to pick up something there.
But when I stood in front of the shelves, I have to admit it took me a couple of minutes to figure out the best choice – something that would stop my stomach from rumbling and keep me feeling focused and energized, without a sugar crash or stomach ache later!
When you’re hungry, it’s so easy to give into temptations.
This video talks about finding the best options to help you stay on point nutritionally when you are in a pinch. I hope you find it helpful! Please let me know if you have any questions at all!

I am so excited to share this recipe with you today! These brownies contain one of our favorite sweet ingredients – dates! – which have a well-deserved nickname of “nature’s candy.”
They are amazing because they’re sweet, fiber-rich, and are fantastic to add to shakes, chia pudding, or … yes … even brownies. They are great to keep stashed in the cupboard.
A bonus of this recipe is that it’s pretty easy to experiment with if you like to get a little adventurous in the kitchen. Because there’s no actual cooking involved, you don’t have to worry about having the proper ratios of various ingredients that you need when baking.
I have some ideas for switching up this recipe below, but I don’t recommend trying them until you’ve made it at least once so you know the right texture to shoot for. :)
These make tasty, high-fiber treats you can enjoy any time of the day.
(Tip: For a grain-free version, try replacing the oats with almond flour. Because almond flour has a higher fat content than oats, depending on its consistency, you likely will have to cut down on the amount of almond butter you use. You also can experiment by using different nut butters.)
I hope you LOVE this recipe!

Isn’t it a good feeling to remember all you’ve sacrificed to achieve a dream? In the early years of our business, Mike worked training clients from 5am to 7pm most days of the week - and then he would go in and train the Bootcamp sessions most Saturday mornings, even after we had Hazen. I was working full-time in my corporate job AND taking classes at night working on my MBA at UMaine.
We spent every spare minute of our days talking about our business and making shifts, changes, and plans in order to hit our goals. It wasn’t easy, but we were so happy to give this dream everything we have. Now that we are more established and have established processes for everything, life is much easier and we have the time freedom we always dreamed of.
What are you willing to do or what are doing now to reach your dreams? I'd love to hear about it!
Lots of love,
CONFESSION: I am a total pasta salad LOVER. But I am not a lover of all of that pasta. I have been searching for YEARS for a more plant based pasta solution but they always have either a super weird texture OR have tons of extra ingredients that I don't want anything to do with.
The best part is - it has just 1 ingredient!
