Tasty Tuesday- It’s all about balance

It’s no surprise that I have a killer sweet tooth, although I enjoy whipping up a nice dinner, I LOVE making treaties. I try to balance my meals as best as possible, AKA make sure I get a get enough veggies and fruit in before I indulge. For this weeks Tasty Tuesday I decided to balance a healthy salad with a tasty treat 🙂

First up, a steak salad with pomegranate rosemary dressing, very random but super delicious.

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp water

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp creamy dijon mustard

1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary

Blend all ingredients together until the seeds are pulverized.

Next up is another super random but equally delicious treaty. No bake chocolate peanut butter coconut bars… these come together in about 5 minutes, which is perfect for those spur of the moment sweet tooth cravings

Bottom layer:

1/4 cup coconut flakes (un-sulphered)

1/4 cup almond flour

2 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp cacao powder

1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup

Middle layer:

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 tbsp molasses

2 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 cup flaked cereal of choice (I used gluten free mesa sunrise)

Top layer:

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 tsp coconut oil

Bottom layer: mix all ingredients together and press in the bottom of a wax paper lined tupperware container or small loaf pan.

Middle layer: over medium high heat melt the peanut butter together with the molasses and maples syrup. Once combined stir in the cereal crushing as you go. Once adequately mixed together add on top of the bottom layer.

Top layer: Melt the chocolate chips and coconut together in a double boiler over simmering water until properly melted, pour over other layers and place in fridge or freezer until fully set then slice and devour 🙂

Life is all about balance: I try to eat 80 % healthy and clean and 20% indulgent and delicious :)… sometimes It ends up more like 70/30 or 60/40 but were all human right 😉

Hope you enjoy both of these Tasty Tuesday Treaties
