Chocolate Coconut Protein Cookies

I have a big sweet tooth. There I said it. If I could, I would eat sweet stuff all day, every day, except for the fact that refined sugar is terrible for the body, has no nutritional value, and always makes me feel sluggish after. But that doesn't mean I give up my sweets all together! In fact, I've concocted my best recipe yet and you chocolate lovers will thank me for it. It's that good!


1/3-1/2 cup Oat
1-2 scoops Protein Powder (I use Vanilla Sun Warrior, but you could use chocolate!)
2 tbsp cocoa powder (I usually eyeball it - I use Organic Cacao with Maca Powder)
2 servings of Chocolate Stevia Powder (I use Flavour Blasters)
1/3 cup Organic Unsweeted Coconut
And the Double Chocolate Part - ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS! or Cacao Nibs :)

1 Banana (a bit browned) cut up into small chunks/slices
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup egg whites

Mix wet ingredients together. Do the same with the dry, and then combine. You will get a sticky gooey consistency...If you fien the mixture is still too dry, add a bit of water, or almond milk. Scoop Onto baking sheet. and Place in the over at 350F for 15 minutes.
Once they're out of the oven, try to let them cool before devouring. I dare you! OH SO YUMMY.

Compression Socks & New Kicks Review

Last October, I ran my first half marathon as a challenge for my body and to do something I have never really enjoyed - running. But that feeling of running alongside so many others, the feeling of accomplishment made me realise that anything is impossible.
I learned quickly that its all about the right pair of shoes that helps with shock absorptions, especially with all that pounding of the pavement. The first thing I did was find the most colourful pair of shoes out there (and of course made for my feet) the Asics Tri Noosa 8. I have to say I am in love. The'yre as light as air on my feet and so far no issues!
One thing I have noticed on my long runs is that my shins and claves seem to seize up. I have learned that this does not just affect me, but something that a lot of athletes  triathletes have been dealing with. After reading about Compression Socks on Dine N Dash Runners, I invested in a pair of Pro Compression socks. Basically, compressions socks help with blood flow, especially in the lower limbs where blood pools (gravity). What hasn't been proven is whether or not compression socks work well during a run or after it...I still have to test both theories out.

What I do know is that the compressions socks while worn on a short run did feel tight and when my cool shoes were removed, I noticed a few blisters. Granted it could have been caused by my new kicks, I definitely prefer a thicker sock to run in for cushioning. Has anyone encounters this with compressions socks?
Do people wear compression socks under a thicker pair? 
I am loving my shoes but not sure if I am in love with compression socks. Do you wear compression socks? How do you use them?
