New Obesssion: Daniela Kende's Sexy Cacao Maca Bites

Oh guys have I got a treat for you!

Last weekend, you may have heard that we held the Sex, Love & Other Things Event at Saje Wellness off Abbot Kinney. It was BEAUTIFUL and lovely and gave me all of the feels. It was great to really open up and chat with some other badass ladies about love, relationships and sex (hehe). I want to do a full post on it later, but today wanted to share a quick easy AMAZING healthy low sugar recipe you have to try.

One of the highlights was of course my girl Daniela Kendes fat balls. I mean, oh my GAH. 

Super low in sugar, high in protein, high in healthy fats, filling, tasty, easy, delicious, these things are INCREDIBLE. Great for breakfast, a snack, a desert...whatever! I had like 40.

Et Viola! Your new favorite treat:

Daniela says,

"Mighty Bites are my go-to treat to whip up when I need an energy boost that’s not going to mess with my blood sugar and send me into a sugar-craving tail spin! They provide a fantastic balance of fat, protein, fiber, and superfoods, and unlike most energy bite recipes out there, are very low in sugar. I created this Cacao Maca *Sexy Bite* to deeply satisfy a chocolate craving (think dense truffle consistency!) and to give you a dose of my favorite hormone balancing, skin-saving, libido-boosting, energy-giving ingredients. No, it’s not too good to be true!

Sexy Bite superstar ingredients include:

  • Antioxidant superstar raw cacao, which has also been shown to increase serotonin levels and boost mood (hence why we may crave chocolate when we’re feeling down)!
  • Maca, an ancient Peruvian adaptogenic herb, that’s used globally for its hormone-balancing and libido-increasing properties.
  • Pumpkin seeds — my personal favorite super seed — which are loaded with skin and hormone-balancing minerals including zinc, magnesium, copper, and iron.
  • Chia seeds, perhaps the most popular superfood these days, for good reason! I especially love the extra fiber and protein boost that chia seeds provide.
  • Hemp protein, my favorite plant-based protein, as it contains 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential ones that your body cannot create on its own. Including protein (and minimizing sugar) in your snacks will help you avoid a blood sugar spike that turns your well-intentioned snack into a mini-binge (which I’ve found most “energy ball” recipes guilty of).

NOTE: I’ve included two versions of my recipe below. The first version features two amazing products from my friend Sophie Jaffe’s deliciously clean superfood line, Philosophie. When I discovered that the Philosophie Cacao Magic protein powder and Superfood Coconut Butter contained many of the ingredients I was already using in my Sexy Bite recipe, I thought I’d create a version using these products that provides a very similar nutritional profile and benefits as the original, with some of the ingredients already combined for you!"

Being EXTRA with ASOS: Favorite skirts to transition into fall

Let me just start by saying, that in L.A. it is nowhere near fall. It's like 93 degrees, LOL. A lil recap on life, I just got back from Croatia a week ago, and it was AMAZING. I can't wait to share more on it. I am in lurve.

Also for The Almost 30 Podcast we had our Sex Love and Other Things Event. It went SO well, the babes showed up ready to chat and share, and so many amazing brands shared amazing products. It was cool that, we are the only event that I've heard of, talking about sex and relationship wellness. Truly! So thank you to everyone for coming out for that, thank you thank you!

In life, I am a bit maxed with things, but knowing that the fact that I am home for the next three weeks makes me feel better about the workload. With weekends, I can manage to get it all done :). 

Excited about sharing some fall inspiration with you fashion wise. I am loving what's out right now, and of course, have to go with my favorite ASOS for everything when the seasons change. They're always on point with styles, colors, textures and prints, and you cannot beat the price point. Although it's hot, I am feeling like slipping into the fall vibe with darker colors, leopard and prints. 

This post is in collaboration with ASOS, but all opinions are of course my own.

Transitioning into fall with the best OTS Shirts right now

Fall is upon us babies!

SO EXCITING! I mean I for one am a lover of summer, aka why I live in California where it never ends. BUT, Fall is my absolute favorite.

For all the basic reasons, YES, but more so because I love wearing a sweatshirt and shorts. It's sort of my jam. Sweatshirt weather is LIFE.

But because I must go in public, I am a huge fan of the off the shoulder trend. Yes it's been around for a season or two, but it's here to stay, and it's flattering on pretty much everyone. I love how sexy and understated the shoulders are, and if you throw on some Josie Moran Argan Oil for your shoulders and decolletage. It makes you glow in the best way possible.

So as we transition, and I still want to show some skin, but also hide my arms and feel uber sexy with some jeans on, I am all about the OTS.

Wearing my favorite one here, from AMUR via Rent the Runway, what I've been using the past couple weeks and am LOVING it.

Sign up for Rent the Runway here, and get 20% off! Doing a full post with them, but so into wearing something a few times and POOF I'm done with it and get something new!

But this outfit, with this comfortable and high quality, really well made top, super comfortable jeans that flatter anyone and mules was surprising comfortable. Huge fan of a look I can wear to multiple places, lunch, work, whatever. 

The mules tho, I wear almost everyday because they are easy to slide on, cover most of your foot, and are under $40 from my favorite, ASOS
