Yin and Yang


J puts up with night after night of roasted vegetables and lean protein.  Considering his love of burritos and pizza, the man is a saint for never complaining.  Once in a while I like to make him a treat to soothe the junk-food loving voice he so frequently ignores for me.  The yin in this story comes in the form of Averie’s Ritz Stuffed PB Cups.

I melted 16 oz of dark chocolate chips with 1 Tbsp of coconut oil


Spooned it into 8 muffin liners and put it in the freezer to set up.


Meanwhile, I spread TJ’s PB all over 8 Ritz.


Plob the PB covered Ritz on the hardened chocolate and spoon the rest of the melted chocolate over.


Let it set up in freezer and let J enjoy.



The yang in this recipe is my version of a snack.  I mix egg whites, pumpkin puree, wheat bran, and protein powder up.  Bake it and call it a muffin.  I’m not leaving a recipe because, honestly, they don’t taste that good.  But, heck, they’re high in protein, fiber, and get the job done.  If you want to try them … chew on some cardboard.  You’ll get the idea. Smile

  1. Oh you’re a good girl 🙂 Lucky J!

    I’m not too keen on cardboard though.. I used to favour polystyrene at kindy many moons ago – maybe this explains a lot as it is kinda highly toxic. Whoops.

    • oh yeah, it was pretty awesome! j’s comment when i asked what could be different to make it better: ”more of it!” 🙂
