Lemon Poppy Seed Bites

Need something sweet? You’re not alone. Usually on the weekend most people, including myself, find themselves thinking about something sweet and decadent. For me, I will usually go for gluten-free pancakes or maybe a piece of gluten-free cake. Another great sweet treat you can try to make is Lemon Seed Poppy Bites. Bites are my go to because you can add a ton of good stuff into them. They taste really good and pack a whole lot of vitamins and minerals. Ever thought of adding protein? Adding protein is another great way to transform a sweet dessert. If you’re going to eat it, there may as well be some nutritional gain. Always ask yourself, what am I getting out of this? Sure it may taste great (we all splurge) but if it’s not benefiting you …no nutritional gain. How good is it really? True Story. Yes, I love cake, but I eat desserts that are made with beneficial ingredients. Throw in some protein, use beet juice as a natural sweetener.

Enjoy the good life, joie de vivre but do it well. Treat yourself and nourish your body; it’s that simple.
