holiday habits

mint chocolate nanaimo bars

It’s a surprisingly short journey between green juice, protein shakes, and abs to sitting on the couch on a Saturday night, missing your out-of-town boyfriend and eating Trader Joe’s cookie butter out of the jar.

Not long ago I was on the Whole Life Challenge, being all responsible and stuff. And, let’s be honest, a little pretentious. I mean, I had abs. Now I’m in full on bake-all-the-things mode (also known as Christmas is coming).

The abs are still there, they’re just hiding underneath a layer of mint chocolate nanaimo bars.

It’s okay though. Can we all just agree that the rest of 2015 will be for eating, and 2016 can be for setting resolutions and abs?

I just used the recipe from the back of the package (though I left out the green food colouring). Sometimes it’s the simple things in life.
