Paleo Fudge


It's officially been over a month since I posted last! Where has the time gone?! So much has happened in this month. E said goodbye to his truck and is searching for a new car, he also signed up for Ironman Texas in May. I will be spending the next 7-8 months trying to feed his amped up metabolism.


We went down to Baton Rouge for alumni weekend and a gluten fest...I'm still paying for that one. 


I made a trip to Houston for the BFFs bachelorette party and wedding shower and this weekend we're off to her wedding!


We also officially joined the Crossfit gym in town and have been working our tails off. 


I promise to be better in all ways this month. I'm committing to a Whole30 and a 21day sugar detox to try to get my sugar cravings under control while participating in a local fitness challenge.

Anyway no one reads this for my life updates so here's a sweet treat recipe for paleo fudge. Fudge is one of E's favorite sweets and he gave this a thumbs up. 


Ingredients:
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 tbs cacao powder
2-3 tbs coconut oil
1tbs honey or maple syrup (you can substitute a few drops of liquid stevia for a low carb/sugar free version)


Blend all the ingredients in a food processor and press into a dish lined with parchment paper. Chill for about an hour. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Note my Ninja in the picture...we are extremely disappointed by his abilities and will be attempting to return him this weekend.

My legs hurt.....

This weekend we tried out a new crossfit gym box whatever it's called in town. If I haven't mentioned, I live in a tiny metropolis of 40,000 people with the closest "city" being 2 hrs away. So a crossfit gym is a big deal. We're behind the times. Anyways we did a killer workout that destroyed my quads. Still can't walk today. Being the crazy person I am I decided to do this workout to try to actively recover. Stupid idea. Here's the workout I did:


You rotate through doing 21 of each exercise then 15 then 9. I didn't use weight because I was so sore, but feel free to add it. For abs I did full sit ups and v-ups on the last round. Enjoy!
