Homemade Chocolate Lara Bars
Lara Bars are one of my favorite snacks - they’re made of nothing but dried fruit and nuts, and are great for an energy boost. They sell for $1.50-$2.00 each, but by making your own, you save money and get to customize your bars however you’d like. Can’t wait to try these.

Slow Oven-Roasted Tomatoes
Ingredients:
Roma TomatoesSalt
Directions:
It is so easy to do, I feel a little silly offering instructions. Wash, dry and slice the tomatoes in half. Lay them out cut-side up on parchment-lined rimmed cookie sheets, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of salt. Put in the oven and roast at 200 degrees (truly, no hotter than that) for 10-12 hours. I realize that sounds like an inconveniently long time, but I tend to do this overnight, timing it so that they’re finished when I get up in the morning. Works perfectly.
I don’t can these tomatoes (honestly, I don’t think you can). I simply cool them, freeze them on the cookie sheets where they were roasted, pack them into jars or freezer bags and store them in the freezer. Easy for year-round additions to pastas, sauces, salads and more.

Got Milk? Try Chocolate After Your Workout.

When it’s time to choose a liquid chug after a long, tough workout, there’s a slew of options out there. Water? Gatorade, POWERade, or All Sport? Endurox R4? Physiologist Joel Stager, director of the Human Performance laboratory at Indiana University, has even one more potential workout recovery drink to add to the list: chocolate milk. His latest study, published in this month’s International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, names this kids’ favorite an optimal post-exercise recovery aid.
