Tuesday

Breakfast: 
Two Eggs and one Egg White (cooked in avocado oil)
One Flaxseed Muffin w/Cherries, Coconut, and Pumkpin Seeds


Snack:
Elana's Gluten-Free Almond Power Bars (2x2" bar)

And, this is how I modified the bars:
2 cups almonds (raw)
½ cup flax meal (ground flaxseeds)
½ cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
8 Medjool dates
½ cup unsalted creamy almond butter
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup coconut oil
1 cup dried cherries, or other dried fruit (unsweetened or juice sweetened)
  1. Place almonds, flax meal, shredded coconut, almond butter, dates, and salt in a food processor
  2. Pulse briefly, about 30 seconds
  3. In a small sauce pan, melt coconut oil over very low heat
  4. Add coconut oil and cherries to food processor and pulse until ingredients form a coarse paste
  5. Press mixture into an 8 x 8 baking dish
  6. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens
 These would definitely be tasty with the addition of really dark chocolate! I might see what I can find at Whole Foods tomorrow...good source of antioxidants...right!?
