My apologies for the spotty postings over the last few weeks. There is a lot going on at D3 and at the day job. In full transparency, things will probably continue this way over the next few weeks while we work to complete a big project here on the site. I promise it will all be worth it in the end.

My apologies for the spotty postings over the last few weeks. There is a lot going on at D3 and at the day job. In full transparency, things will probably continue this way over the next few weeks while we work to complete a big project here on the site. I promise it will all be worth it in the end. In the meantime, snack on these perfectly delicious two bite brownies. Like most brownies, they are easy to make. I consider these guilt-free since they are large enough to satisfy a sweet craving and small enough not to overdo it.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been traveling and running all over the place for work. When you compound that with the fact that I have been working long hours, it’s easy for me to get in the habit of eating poorly. Especially since the kitchen in my day job is filled to the brim with junk food and snacks that never seem to run out. To combat my poor eating habits over the past few weeks, I wanted to make myself a healthy snack. An acai bowl is something I grab from the juice bar when I need some energy. I was so pleased with how easy and delicious this recipe is. It satisfied my need for a healthy snack with a sweet kick.
