I was craving some homemade Larabars after I saw the Coconut Cream Larabar recipe on My Whole Food Life. I had one for breakfast with an apple. And to be honest, I had one for a snack too. They’re just so good! If you’re not a fan of coconut, feel free to try another recipe. But seriously, these are amazing!

The recipe made 10 bars for me. I cut them roughly to the size of a typical granola bar. I want to eat another. Go make them right now! And then come share them with me. I’m in love.

The left over tofu was pretty good. I still had some rice but had eaten all of the broccoli I made with it last night. I added a little lemon juice for flavor.

What really stole the show today was the Kale and Tomato Risotto. I love risotto. It has to be one of my favorite dishes but I haven’t had it in a long time. I didn’t have any Arborio rice, which is why it didn’t turn out as creamy, but it was still just a flavorful!

I’m still just doing my shoulder exercises, but continue the the Five Day Workout Plan.

Five Day Plan Day 2

Try using 10 lb weights if the 5 lb is too easy. And don’t forget to stretch! This is a good yoga video to loosen you up a bit.
