dippity doo da.

Lay off me I'm starving... haha.. I don't know what happened.. but today I am SO hungry.. We all have days like this, I'm sure. But maybe it was running the half marathon, after the half I wasn't to hungry, yesterday I ate normal.. today.. I am a SNACK MONSTER..
I double taught this morning and even got the GPP workout in. But ate a good breakfast, recovery shake and some nut snackage..late lunch but not to late?  The monster grew even more later... so I decided, I needed some carbs, with protein and healthy fat to control the beast.
A little cottage, a little greek with some Peanut Butter..

Protein Fruit Dip was born.

..Protein Fruit Dip..

  • 1/2 C. vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/2 C. cottage cheese
  • 2 Tbs. P.B
  • agave and cinnamon to taste.

Pour all the ingredients in your blender and blend on low/medium until smooth.

Transfer into a bowl

Grab and Fruit and tame the snack monster ;)


If you ever have a snack attack like I did everyday today. Give this a whirl! It is almost dessert!
Have a great week! 


  1. With all that exercise- no surprise you have a little monster in your tummy :). I get random bursts of hunger lately too- but that is probably because I do have a little monster in my tummy haha. This dip sounds fantastic. I'm all for anything involving Greek yogurt

  2. Yummy! I get the hungry monster everyday so I'll be trying this dip tonite!!

  3. Love the SNL reference!! Chris Farley is my fav!!

    Looks delish Candice!! I think we have visited each other's blogs before! thanks for stopping by again!

  4. I AM THE SAME WAY!!! I am not hungry the day of the race and sometimes not the next day but the day after that I eat 9,000 calories and snack all day, you are not alone. GREAT AMAZING AWESOME job on your half marathon and you look so good doing it. I LOVE your jeans from the bib pick-up...where did you get them. Also, the little shirts you had made are amazing!!!! That dip looks amazing and I can't wait to try it out!!

  5. PS thank you SO SO MUCH for the email, you made my day!!! Do you live in Utah?
