Satisfy That Sweet Tooth – #PrepLife

So according to the WBFF’s website, I am currently 44 days out. This means that the diet is getting tighter and tighter by the day. Everyone who has ever done a prep before knows that the goal is to learn your body down to a science. Understanding what needs to be controlled in order to bring about the best possible physique on stage. Unfortunately for me, one of those variables is sugar intake.

Those that know me know that I have an incredible sweet tooth. Anything that falls into the dessert category is in my wheelhouse. Donuts, cookies, pies, ice cream – I do not discriminate. So it’s not shocking that limiting sugar is a huge mental battle (I’m currently hovering under 15g per day). This is why I must always seek out or create unique ways to keep my inner fat kid at bay.

Today I want to share one of my latest creations which has become a staple meal in my day to day prep…
