  1. I love the Green Chocolate Monkey smoothie! In fact I love all your recipes in the catching fire! You have no idea how much this has helped me! Thanks

  2. I have a snack question. I eat brakfeast at 7 and then usually have a Pure Protein bar for a snack at 10. Lunch is then at 12:10. What can I do in place of the bar that would be Paleo’s? I have the Larabar, but then wouldn’t I be short the protein? Do I need to do chicken to get the protein at that time? Convenience is better as during this time I am in class with students, but I will do what I need to. Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Ted,

      It’s best to try to stick with only whole food whenever possible and ditch the bars. For a snack you don’t need as much protein. If you are in class, some gogi berries and pumpkin seeds would work. I typically recommend raw veggies and hummus for a morning snack. You just need a bridge to your next meal and the fiber and nutrients in the veggies will help create enough volume in your tummy to keep you full, especially paired with the fat and protein in the pumpkin seeds or hummus. Hope that helps. Or you could try bringing in a smoothie and splitting it between your morning and afternoon snacks.
