Good morning friends! Happy "Thumbs up" Thursday! I hope you are having a beautiful morning so far as you get your kid(s) up, ready, fed and out the door for another day of learning...get yourselves up and energized with a great workout or a great breakfast as you get ready to face yet another FABULOUS day of living. However your morning is starting off, no matter what...CHOOSE YOUR MOOD. Choose for today to be the day you do something for YOU. Choose for today to be the day that you finally schedule in your workout because you know it will do wonders for your mind AND body...or choose to try a new recipe that is low in calories, yummy and will give you energy!
Today's blog will be a quick one. I'm going to share with you my favorite recipe that is easy and quick to make that the whole family can enjoy. Before I do so, I must first say that I can't take all the credit for this yummy treat. One of my son's track team mate's Mom shared this with me and let me say, it is a WINNER in my household! Are you ready??? Here you go!
