Make Your Own MamaBars

When I made Averie’s RAWking chocolate donut holes last week, I got to thinking that these were basically homemade Larabars. They were really good – and they were chocolate! I don’t know about you, but the chocolate Larabars leave much to be desired. I think I can do a little better. Wait, I DID do a little better! (Thank you Averie.)

Are you smelling what I’m smelling?

I’m gonna make me some MamaBars.

The only thing is, I’m kind of curious to know how many calories might be in a MamaBar versus a Larabar. I was in the mood for a little project tonight so I got to work.

Manly Time Change

I woke up this morning at 5:45 4:45. Early (yikes) but I loved that I was able to go for my run in the LIGHT at 6:30!

For fall/winter running, I’ll agree to run outside if 2 out of 3 criteria are met:

1.) Warm
2.) Dry
3.) Light

Scenario A: If it’s raining (lightly) but warm? OK.

Scenario B: If it’s light out and cold? Sure.

Scenario C: Dark and cold but dry? Not my favorite but I’ll do it.

Scenario D: If it’s dark and wet and cold? Deal breaker.
