Healthy Peanut Butter Blondies Made with Love (and a giveaway!)

Hello everyone! As a Love Grown Foods Ambassador, I wanted to create a special recipe using their new Mighty Flakes Cereal. I have been brainstorming all week and finally came up with this recipe and let me tell ya'll.... it is GOOD! 
Ingredients: 2 cups Love Growns Cereal (pulsed into a flour) 2/3 cup Egg Whites 1 ripe banana 1/2 cup Yogurt  3/4 cup Peanut Butter sprinkle of baking powder 
Pre-Heat oven to 350*F
Directions: First, pour 2 cups of Mighty Flakes cereal into a food processor until it forms a flour like texture. Mine took about 2 minutes. Next, add the Egg Whites and Banana.
After that has mixed for about 30 seconds, add in the peanut butter, yogurt, and baking powder. 
Blend for about 1 minute until a batter forms. 
Next, spray some Parchment Paper with non-stick spray and leave a little hanging over for easy handling later on. I used a round baking dish that was 9.5 inches. 
Bake it in for 25 min at 350*F or until you can stick a fork in the center without having…

What do Pro Golfers Eat During a Tournament?

The question Jared gets asked quite frequently is "WHAT DO YOU EAT? Before, during, and after your round?" 

As a healthy eating plan is important for EVERYONE, golfers have a unique schedule because they warm up for about an hour before their tee time, their round is 5-6 hours long, and they practice a little after the round to fine tune things. It is a LONG DAY, and there are not "set breaks" thrown in to sit down and eat.
Jared's pre-round breakfast is ALWAYS some type of nut butter and banana on 2 pieces of toast. Sometimes, he eats some oatmeal too. 
During his rounds, he will snack on things like Nature's Bakery Fig Bars, other various protein bars we find on sale that week, nuts, and drinks lots of Cocogo.
We are enjoying finding brand new snacks each month, thanks to FIT SNACK BOX.  This month, Jared enjoyed eating the Almond and Pumpkin Seed Mix during his rounds. My favorite was the Sunbutter packets! Order yours here and get a free bag with an…
