It’s the first week of June and things are starting to heat up down here in North Carolina. When it gets hot, I crave refreshing foods. Lemon flavored desserts not only clear the palette but perfectly end any meal. I recently found a recipe for Gluten Free Lemon Cookies that have been a hit with my husband. They don’t last long and I think I’ll be baking double batches next time! What I love about this recipe is the simple ingredient list, how fast these cookies are ready to eat and the fluffy, moist texture. We keep these in the refrigerator for a fresh, chilled dessert. They are great straight out of the oven as well. You can’t go wrong with these cute cookies!
When do you find it the most difficult to eat healthy? For me, it is when I travel. Whether it is a road trip, an international flight or an airport layover, I can never seem to find a restaurant that meets all my dietary needs. Chocolate Almond Energy Balls to the rescue! These sweet treats not only fix that afternoon sugar craving, but they are naturally filling and full of good things for your body. On weight training days, I eat a few of these in-between meals. When traveling, I throw a couple in my purse and freeze the rest to store in my luggage for later. After viewing a few mouth-watering photographs below, scroll down to print the recipe for yourself!
