Get After It Bites – Cashew Peanut Butter Cookie
This is the first of 3 recipes I prepared exclusively for my one week program with Kait Hurley. If you haven’t heard me rave about Kait, let me take a moment to do just that. Kait, a fitness and meditation expert and teacher, created the best move + meditate program. Even though it’s entirely online, Kait makes you feel like she’s right there with you, cheering you on, and she really is! Her workouts range from high intensity to restorative yoga to guided runs and each one ends with a beautiful meditation. There’s science behind her method. Releasing excess anxious energy during the workout enables you to go deeper into the meditation. Kait has enabled me to stick to a consistent meditation practice for over a year now. Working with her on this program has really been a dream for me.

Day 1 of the program: Kait’s Get After It workout. I chose this for Monday on purpose- it’s my favorite way to start the week. This high intensity workout gets your energy up and sets you up for a high vibe and productive week. Especially during the crazy holiday season, the body craves an effective sweat session and this delivers. After this workout, take extra care to stay hydrated. Aim to drink all the water in your reusable water bottle before eating breakfast! Then munch on these Get After It (Cashew Peanut Butter Cookie) Bites. This recipe is high in plant based protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats- the perfect way to recover after a workout. (And, all ingredients can be purchased from the bulk section, so the recipe is zero waste!). Enjoy!!
