Healthy Happy Hour!

Last night I hosted my first Healthy Happy Hour!  I had decided earlier that day that I was going to try and host it myself.  Not that I don't think Cindy does a good job, she is great!  But I am going to have to learn sometime and I would rather do it in front of my friends for the first time.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?  So I practiced all day.  I practiced until I knew exactly what I wanted to say.  I made a note card, and I was ready to go!  I set up the table, and I was happy!  I knew it was going to be a small crowd, I'm ok with that.  Actually I think it might be better!  The group did not know each other, but it didn't matter.  I was very happy with my presentation!  Yes, it could be better, but for my first shot I was happy with how I did.  I always want it to feel natural and that it is coming from me.  I want people to know that I really do believe in these products and I like to speak from the heart.  I never even ended up looking at my note card.

I started off with my story and how I got into the business.  I went through the details of the 30 day detox. Why the detox is important (maybe another post dedicated to this), what it does, and how I feel, etc.  I went into the RE9 as well, and Cindy had brought her cosmetics case (not pictured) which is always fun!

Then we got to the good stuff!  Sampling everything!

I had set up a pitcher of pomegranate fizz sticks, a pitcher of citrus fizz sticks, I made detox tea and put it in a carafe, and I had a bowl of fit chews.  One of my friends has had the greens balance for over a month now, and has been scared to try it!  I told her that I would try it with her at the party.  I made a cup of greens and we all tried that.  It was ok, but I wouldn't drink it on its own.  I ended up mixing it in with chocolate protein powder and everyone tried that - it is much better that way!  But I think the show stopper - every time I have a party - is the protein balls!  People LOVE these protein balls!  You can see them in the picture above, I have them on the plate in little paper cups.  I am going to share the recipe here.  They are so easy to make, only 4 ingredients, and they last forever!  You can make them into balls or put them in a pyrex and cut them into squares.  I do balls for the parties.

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 2/3 cup honey (you can also use agave if you are going for vegan)
  • 1 cup protein powder (I use half and half chocolate and vanilla)
  • 2 cups of gluten free whole oats
I have used half chocolate and half vanilla, but I have also used all chocolate.  I like them both.  Heat the almond butter and honey in a saucepan on low heat until well combined.  Remove from heat.  Add the protein powder and mix well.  Add the oats to a separate bowl and add the protein butter mix to the oats.  You may need to mix with your hands.  I use coconut oil to make sure it doesn't stick to my hands, or the pyrex if I am making bars.  Store them in the refrigerator, but I like to eat them at room temperature.

  1. Looks yummy! I'm going to make some of these this weekend!

  2. If on the 30 day detox, we can't have honey. Do you suggest a replacement? What about adding almond butter?

  3. I have just discovered that you can use applesauce instead of honey! My latest recipe uses half honey, half applesauce. I don't know if you could use it for the entire recipe, but I will try it! It gives it more of a cakey/chewy texture. I love it!

  4. Organic Blue Agave can be used instead of Honey

  5. What is the calorie intake on these?
