Henry and I got sucked into awesome park action this morning â€“ itâ€™s cloudy and breezy and I donâ€™t feel like my face is melting off the moment I step outside! â€“ 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!
Iâ€™m definitely far into Modified Push-Up Land. The regular ones are way too challenging.
Afterwards â€“ a treat!
Iâ€™ve been loving this super simple recipe â€“ in fact, Iâ€™ve made it three times in the last week. Iâ€™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 â€“ itâ€™s SO GOOD.
Wanna play a game? Letâ€™s play â€“ what is your petâ€™s BEST and WORST quality (the Husband and I were playing this last night).
Maggie â€“ Best: Really good at sleeping in our bed â€“ she lays there like a warm lump and never disturbs us. Also good with Henry. Worst: Tie between â€œbarks at anything and nothingâ€ and â€œpees spitefully on the floor.â€
James â€“ Best: Genuinely a good dog who never breaks the rules or causes trouble. Worst: Refuses to come in at nightâ€¦ You have to drag him from the backyard back inside.
Ferguson â€“ Best: Good kitty snuggler. Worst: Throws food out of his bowl as he eats. So messy.
