Pre and post workout snacks can be al little tricky…so here are few ideas that should help you take the guesswork out!

A few weeks ago I interviewed Lara Dalch from Dalch Wellness for a KING5 article about workout snacks. Lara had great suggestions, insights into when to eat, which snacks make the best fuel and which ones help with post workout recovery.

Check out the article and photo gallery on KING5′s website for 6 awesome snack ideas. Get ready to fuel your works like never before, and maybe even  get through a few extra rounds of tabata:)

Guilt-free Double Chocolate Muffins


When I asked my husband what his favorite thing that I make is, he said… chocolate muffins.  Not apple pie, not spaghetti and meatballs, not loaded potato skins his favorite thing are these low fat, low calorie muffins courtesy of the one and only Bethenny Frankel.  In true SkinnyGirl fashion,  (which is why it’s so funny that these are my husband’s favorites) Bethenny’s recipe for these muffins tastes totally decedent when it is in fact quite guilt free. For added chocolate intensity I use Ina Garten’s trick and and a pinch of instand coffee graduals to the batter. What you are left with is ooey gooey chocolately goodness perfect for a guiltfree dessert!
