Henry and I got sucked into awesome park action this morning – it’s cloudy and breezy and I don’t feel like my face is melting off the moment I step outside! – and we ended up missing my gym window. Drat.
So to make up for a lost swim, I replaced the effort with this at-home workout. Completed while watching cartoons!
I’m definitely far into Modified Push-Up Land. The regular ones are way too challenging.
Afterwards – a treat!
I’ve been loving this super simple recipe – in fact, I’ve made it three times in the last week. I’ve tried these Rice Krispy-inspired treats with a variety of nut butters plus nut mix-ins, but this pared-down version is actually my favorite. Runner up: almond butter with sliced almond mix-ins!
3-Ingredient Sunflower Butter Treats
- 3 cups rice puff cereal
- 2/3 cup sunflower butter
- 2/3 cup brown rice syrup
- In a large microwavable bowl, heat sunflower butter and brown rice syrup for 1 minute. Stir well.
- Add in rice cereal and stir to thoroughly coat.
- Spray a 9 by 9 inch pan with cooking spray and then scoop in cereal mix. Wet hands with some water and press down firmly.
- Refrigerate for an hour to set.
I actually prefer to eat this snack as an addition to vanilla Greek yogurt. Seriously – it’s SO GOOD.
Wanna play a game? Let’s play – what is your pet’s BEST and WORST quality (the Husband and I were playing this last night).
Maggie – Best: Really good at sleeping in our bed – she lays there like a warm lump and never disturbs us. Also good with Henry. Worst: Tie between “barks at anything and nothing” and “pees spitefully on the floor.”
James – Best: Genuinely a good dog who never breaks the rules or causes trouble. Worst: Refuses to come in at night… You have to drag him from the backyard back inside.
Ferguson – Best: Good kitty snuggler. Worst: Throws food out of his bowl as he eats. So messy.
