I love making my own grab & go bars. Making them at home is not only cheaper than buying them already made, but also means I get to customize them with my favorites! You can swap the fruit & nuts with whatever your favorites are, same for the nut butter!

Here’s a few other ideas to customize this recipe:

  • Dried fruits: golden raisins, raisins, cranberries, craisins
  • Nuts: chopped almonds, walnuts, peanuts, cashews, hazelnuts
  • Nut butters: hazelnut butter, almond butter, chocolate peanut butter, chocolate hazelnut butter, soynut butter

I stored my bars in a ziplock in the fridge because I like them chewier but if you like crunchy bars better try leaving them out for a few hours (6-8 hours) before storing to let them dry out. You can also individually wrap 1 or 2 bars at a time for truly on the run packs!

Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight.  When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder. 

FUCK YEA this makes me ridiculously happy.

Breakfast Pizza- eggs, cheese, hashbrowns, sausage, etc. - make it healthier with lower fat sausage (e.g. turkey), egg whites and egg yolks, veggies, etc. Could put it in the fridge and eat for a couple of days. Good with some fresh fruit.

Got another run in today- 4.2 in under 48 minutes. This run felt pretty good, I used a Gu because it’s been a while since I ate and ran and figured I needed to give it a whirl again before next week.
I am aiming for 10 on Saturday, which is totally easy and doable. Otherwise not much new to report. I owe a post about my new shoes- I’ll get to it first thing tomorrow.
Just another freezing day in Chicago. I cannot wait for a weekend in LA!
