Forget what you heard. Healthy weight-cut food can also be dang delicious and yes, Coach LT still likes her sweeties. She just respects the need to keep the food in focus with the plan.
Came home from 2 hours of boxing training to enjoy one of my go-to salads made with a base of Whole Foods’ 365 Coleslaw Mix. Love chopping it up with kitchen sheers and tossing it with some Bragg’s Nutritional Yeast, 365 Dijon or Honey Mustard, avocado, Wildwood High Protein Tofu and a light sprinkle of seasoning (Adobo, garlic and herb blends…it’s a mix-and-match kind of thing…you know, shoot from the hip and roll with it). So good!
But, that’s not what you came here for and certainly not what inspired this post. That salad was good but it was roughly 379 calories and homegirl here was still hungry.
I love a good dessert but have to stay on-plan to make weight for comp. Ever-so close and certainly too close to go screwing around now.
With that, I’ve found that the right desserts make all the difference in keeping me away from the wrong ones. The right ones nourish my body while satisfying cravings that could otherwise easily send me right off the rails. So often people buy the bull that healthy foods don’t taste good. That’s just not true. You just need to know which ingredients to keep in your arsenal as you feed that warrior body for warrior things.
This would be one of those recipes.
Put it in your pocket. Take it to your kitchen and ENJOY!
