Chocolate Shakeology Oatmeal Bars

As I am on a mission for my figure competition body/bikini body for the summer, I am taking away any unhealthy temptations I have and replacing them with something that tastes the same, but better nutrition that will help me get closer to my goals (minus my one cheat meal a week)! 

I love chocolate and peanut butter, Im not going to lie!! I could probably live off of those (and cheese) if I could! So its all about finding healthy alternatives while staying on track right?!?! 

One meal I get in every day is my Shakeology.  Whether you have heard of it or not, I'm going to give you an idea of how awesome it is!! A meal replacement with over 70 natural ingredients and superfoods, to help curb my cravings by fueling my body with what it really needs! It also has helped with my energy levels---> Yes, when you intake all these NATURAL ingredients, you will notice a difference in how you feel throughout your day!

Whats really cool about this is it has so many more benefits to your health (click on my link above or below to get more info), but also you can do so much more than just shakes!! The point of Shakeology is to make it easy, convenient, but healthy for you so your giving your body what it needs without hassle of cooking up a million veggies, strange fruits and superfoods that you pay a crazy ton of money in other countries (or the supplements at GNC). Now you can also make desserts, snacks, and more so keep you going throughout the day, but also helping you from falling into those unhealthy temptations of sweet treats!  

Here is a perfect snack/treat you can make for yourself to help you stay on track but satisfy those cravings too:
