I have a huge sweet tooth, but I try to be conscientious when it comes to indulging in desserts. So when I find recipes for snacks that satisfy my cravings and offer some health benefits, it's a major win-win. I've been training for a half marathon the past few months--yes, I choose to run for fun in my spare time--so I've been especially focused on laying off desserts, while upping my protein intake and eat as many energy-boosting foods as I can to get me through those long runs.
When I first saw the trailer of Moana, an animated Disney musical set in the Pacific Islands, I was immediately interested in the film. Watching the titular lead character sail across the open ocean with a pet chicken by her side, battling deep-sea creatures and facing impossible odds, I knew this would be a Disney movie I could get on board with. It’s not a romantic film centered around true love’s first kiss with Prince Charming.
