Shhhh. I’m about to divulge a dark secret. Even though we have been on a high-protein, moderate-fat, low-carb, no-sugar lifestyle change over the last few months, I completely blew it all to heck when I visited Springfield, Missouri.

Mike picked the chocolate peanut butter cup, Oreo cheesecake, and S’mores. The pastries were way too large and decadent to eat more than one in a setting, so we had luscious treats to contribute to our cheat over the next three days.
Here was our to-go box:
Don’t judge–everyone has a weakness!
