Deviled Egg Container!

I decided that the deviled egg container needed to find another purpose if it was to keep residing in our residence, so it holds Protein Balls very nicely.

Raw Protein Balls


2 tablespoons of almond butter or organic natural peanut butter (no salt or sugar added) (I used 1/4 cup)

2 tablespoons of agave nectar (I used 1/4 cup)

1/2 cup of naturally flavoured vanilla protein powder sweetened with a natural sweetener. (Sun Warrior) (I used 1 cup)

2 tablespoons of organic shredded coconut (I used 1/4 cup)

You can also add 1 tablespoon of slivered almonds and 1 tbsp of raisins (I omitted the almonds and added 2 T. raisins)

*I also, added 3 medjool dates, 1 packet of stevia, and another 1/4 cup agave.....*I wanted to make this a bigger batch)

Mix all the ingredients well. (I used my Food Processor)

The balls should fit in the center of the palm of your hand

Put them into the fridge so they can set

Enjoy!

CSNstores Review and Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Finally, time for the review and a recipe! Remember when Caitlin from CSNstores contacted me and I chose to do a review, well the product I chose was Kathy Smith's Kettlebells. I love this all around package, you have two kettlebells (#3 lbs and #5 lbs), a dvd that has 4 workouts, and a nutrition guide if you would like to follow it! The guide does have some great information in it concerning the basics of eating a proper diet.

I love it when a workout dvd has a couple different routine's, that way you won't get bored and you can work different areas of the body. Don't think that this is a simple workout, it can kick some serious butt! The first time I did the one routine, I picked one that used the 5 lb kettlebell, now I work with 5 lb weights all the time, well swinging this weight has a total different feel then lifting it. The next couple of days I FELT it!...lol!

I also love the feel of these kettlebells, nice and smooth, nothing rough about them! If you would like to order a set for yourself you can go here! I would like to thank Caitlin and CSNstores for giving me this opportunity to review one of their products!

Now for the recipe, Cauliflower Pizza Crust! OMG! this was amazing, I thought out of cauliflower no way, but I say WAY now...lol! Wholly YUM! You can find the recipe here! Hubby and I used the veggie cheese and it turned out really good, other ingredients were pasta sauce, turkey pepperoni and pineapple! Nom! Nom!

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday! Hugs!
