Today’s Fashionable Friend Friday is Mary Tyler Moore. She was my absolute favorite growing up. I watched her Mary Richards religiously. I wanted to work in the newsroom with Murray, Ted and Mr. Grant. I could not get enough of her, her landlady Phillis and her bestie Rhoda. Back then we didn’t need a woman in the White House, we had Mary and she was our role model. She had a great news job in the big city, lots of work friends, a groovy wardrobe and the coolest studio apartment. Mary had spunk (per Mr. Grant) and we all wanted to be just like her, throw our hat in the air and take a nothing day and make it all seem worthwhile. We will miss you Mary Tyler Moore, thank you for showing us how to stand up and be independent working women and to make it after all.
I recently found these bites at the Health Club that I belong to, CLAY. As I have mentioned before they have the most amazing juice bar with many incredible nutritious menu options. One of the staples are their protein bites, for after your workout. They are so good. I asked the chef, Sandra, who is soooooo talented by the way, for the recipe so I could share it with you. These are so easy, no bake and high in protein and a total energy boost. Yummmmm!!!!
1 cup dry oatmeal
2/3 cup coconut flakes
1/2 peanut butter
1/4 cup flax seed
1/4 chia seed
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey or agave
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Form into balls, using your hands. Arrange on energy bites on a baking sheet, freeze until they set (about an hour).
