Single-Serving Healthy Peanut Butter Cup Puppy Chow

 A classic treat made healthy, high protein, and single serving for portion control!   Classic Muddy Buddy recipes use melted chocolate, butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and cereal. While they are insanely delicious, when I looked up recipes, an average 1/2 cup serving size clocked in at around 220-250 calories, 10+ g of fat, 40+…

How to Make Salads That You Will Actually Enjoy {Plus TONS of Pics}

Salads get a bad rap for being bland and tasteless and for leaving us unsatisfied and hungry for more food. They’ve been labeled the ultimate diet food. This makes me incredibly sad.

Modern Greek With Quinoa {Panera Bread Copycat Recipe}
