Thanks to Michele for sharing a great snack form Miraval coconut bites. Put these through myfitnesspal recipe to get the macros! No bake
4 cup Rolled Oats
2 cup Almond Butter
1 1/3 cup Maple Syrup
1 TB Vanilla Extract
2 cup Coconut Flakes
2 cup Bittersweet Chocolate
1 tsp Kosher Salt
Combine everything in a large bowl, and mix until everything is well coated, and the mixture holds shape when pressed into a ball. Scoop onto parchment and chill to set up.
Thank you to Alborada Mata-Carares. My friend and prior client that has taken the reins of organizing friends to keep running and staying fit! She went from participating in our craziness of running all night long in vans to organizing teams for us outside the state. Her first experience was joining my team last minute in 2011, running her first Ragnar Road race Northwest Passage, in a van where she didn't know anyone (I was in team captain and was in the other van). She ran 15 miles in 24 hour from Blaine, WA to down to Whidbey Island, She now is an awesome team captain and bringing us together, creating spreadsheets and estimated finishing times for us at the new Samamish Outrun the Run race at Sammamish Lake. This race was much shorter and had few team members. We had two teams of 4 people with different start time. We ran 4 mile each leg and the next person would hand off until our team finished. Great way to get introduced to organized runs. I got to jump in and join her team. Thank you! Thank you for getting us to finish Zion last again too!
Ok here is another version of the dips we've been making this summer. Some of my clients have really enjoyed it and asked for the recipe and calorie break down.

20 min prep time even less if you buy the cooked beets from Trader Joe’s . You can slip that step altogether.
2 cups of roasted butternut squash (Used the air fryer this time to make have of one but I have of one but I've made it with 3 cups before all delicious and calories are low)
3 tbsp or juice of a lemon
1 garlic clove
1 1/2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar (also have used Coconut Nectar Vinegar)
3 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of coconut oil melted
1/4 c of tahini

black pepper and cayenne to taste
You don't need to blend all ingredients in a high powers blender, I used my Ninja, just as good.
Enjoy with some sliced cucumber, peppers, asparagus or rice crackers
