When Life Gives You Lemons...

Make lemons bars! Or rather, Clean Eating approved lemon protein bars that taste more sinful than healthy! This past weekend, Ben-a-Fit had a booth at a local 5k.  And to encourage potential clients to come chat with us, I brought a few batches of these healthful little treats. With an indulgently moist and cake-like texture, you might never know they were good for you! If you like lemon bars, then you are in for a real treat!
