(buff mama monday) olympics inspired snack recipe

Instead of my original “how to gain 5lbs in Vegas” post idea, I thought a healthy snack idea post might be better. I had a ton of fun turning 30 in Vegas, maybe a little too much fun. I’ll be writing a little Vegas trip recap post soon, which will include all of the yummy food I ate. With that said, I’m starting “operation detox” today and I’ll be at kickboxing tonight, which I’m sure will kick my butt. I have another 5k coming up in August, time to hop back on the treadmill again!

I love coming up with different healthy snack recipes to supplement my Nutrisystem meals, here’s one of them inspired by the Olympics. This recipe is perfect for the kiddos to help with. Adults can do the slicing prep work and kids can “decorate” the rice cakes according to the ring colors. Oh how I love the Olympics! The athletes are AH-MAZING, so dedicated and determined. I always look forward to watching gymnastics and swimming. If the Olympics don’t inspire you to be healthier, I don’t know what will!
