Back At It

I'm home! I got home Wednesday night and it feels good to be home :) I had an amazing time in San Francisco and Denver and I will tell you all about it on Monday! Since being back, I've been playing major catch up (isn't that always fun?!)

I don't know about you, but when I'm traveling, and especially in airports, it's as if whatever I eat doesn't "count".  I find myself in the "News" stores buying extremely overpriced bags of gummy bears and chocolate covered raisins (sooo not "clean" eating, I know!)

While sitting in the airport eating my Raisinets, I kept thinking how easy it would be to make my own. So I did some googling and found this great recipe:

  • 1/4 cup organic dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • Approx 1.5 cups raisins

Directions: Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a medium sized bowl and heat for approx. 1 minute on high in the microwave. Stir very well until all clumps are gone. Now take the raisins, 1/2 cup at a time and stir into the chocolate. Pour raisin mixture onto a large plate lined with parchment paper and spread into a thin layer. Place in freezer to firm for about 5-10 minutes. Break apart the raisins with fingers and serve! Keep leftovers in the fridge.

I can't wait to try these, but I'm going to wait a bit considering how much I overindulged while away ;)

I'll be back on Monday to tell you all about my trip!!

  1. I do the SAME thing! I always go nuts with snacks on trips (not literally....cause I hate nuts.) and feel the same way, like it doesn't count.


THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment.
