I’m sure you area all wondering if I woke up yesterday morning to get my 5AM workout in…Well- the answer is no.
I unfortunately had the most TERRIBLE night of sleep ever! I went to bed at 9:00 tired as can be…and laid there until 3:30…WIDE AWAKE. Not sure how that adds up, but I decided to take the day off from working out in hopes for a better recovery on my lack of sleep!
Surprisingly I had a very productive day!
I know a few days ago I called these Vegan Gingerbread Pumpkin Snowballs, but apparently there is a giant debate whether or not powdered sugar is vegan or not. If anyone has a firm answer on this- please let me know! I’d love to know myself if powdered sugar is vegan or not :)
These balls are a little different than my typical recipe because I didn’t use any nut butter. I did use almond meal, which would eventually turn into nut butter if you whirled it in a food processor!
My girlfriend Rachel actually helped me with this recipe…and the staging too…SNOWMAN.
OM NOM NOM. I like to store these in the freezer, for some reason I like them better frozen…and they stay better for a longer amount of time.

Don’t miss Days 1-3!
