Get Your Fixx

I recently went to Scottsdale, Arizona to visit some dear friends of mine. As I was in AJ’s specialty store picking up some flowers for a friend that has been ill, they were sampling Fixx Chocolate Bars. I admit, I was skeptical and just thought, okay, I will have a little bite of sugar while they wrap my flowers.

I was so very pleasantly surprised when I tossed the first bite of the Chelle’s bar in my mouth. It is a handmade chocolate bar that is comprised of creamy cashew nougat, caramel, and roasted cashews. Um….move over Snicker’s bar… Sheriff Chelle is in town. This dream of a chocolate bar was so beautifully presented in two smaller bars in a white box. They are fancy little chocolate bars that are full of the most expertly mixed flavors and textures that delight the tiny little taste buds and make your eyes light up with joy. The Fixx bars are the best chocolate bars I have tasted in a long time. And anyone that knows me, knows that I will never pick chocolate as my favored treat, but in this case, I have been won over and in fact, I now crave it. I will start lobbying to all the local markets to start stocking my new favorite candy bar so I can get my weekly Fixx. Yes, fellow skinny girl Angelenos, I will openly admit that I am going to eat sweets every week!

If you are lucky enough to live in Scottsdale, venture out to AJ’s and grab as many bars as you can because when I went back for more, they were sold out! Make sure you are going straight home though, because although the pretty box it comes in will protect it from getting crushed, that Arizona heat is sure to melt it in mere seconds. I mean I almost melted in that heat too!

Breakfast Sushi

My dear friend Lisa of @eatcleanla inspired me to make this breakfast sushi. It is absolutely delicious and looks impressive! Don’t worry, it will be our little secret that it is super easy to make.

You will need smoked salmon, spinach, and 2 eggs. Of course you can add more ingredients and use more eggs. Spray a non stick pan with coconut oil and heat to medium heat. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl and pour into the pan. Leave the eggs alone to cook in one flat layer, do not flip. When cooked through, slide onto a plate. Place a layer of spinach on top of the eggs, then top with a layer of thinly sliced smoked salmon. Carefully roll this into a sushi roll, starting from one of the edges. Tightly roll until you get to the other edge. Next, cut the roll into little section about an inch or so wide to make a cut sushi roll. The colors are vibrant and it looks and tastes so good! The added bonus is you are getting lots of protein and omega 3’s.

The posibilities are endless for flavor combinations. I’m so glad I tried this and you will be too!
