Collagen Chocolate Truffles

Collagen Chocolate Truffles

I am baaaaack.

Okay well in reality I got back last weekend, but it took me nearly 40 hours to get home and then I just had to find some way to make it through the week. 

The Amazon was PHENOMENAL. I will put together a post with stories and pictures soon! I have just been trying to settle back into normal life. I have just finished all the laundry! Yikes.

So to get home I had to leave the jungle at 6 am, take an hour boat trip down the Napo river, a 7 hour drive through the Andes. Then 4 planes. The second plane landed me in DC at 2 am, and then I had to wait 2 hours before I could check into my next flight. So some time, but not enough to leave and get a hotel and sleep. I got back home at 4 pm on the Sunday. So over 30 hours to home. Totally worth it. I could have slept standing up on Monday. 

Then this week we had parent teacher interviews at school, so some late nights and long days.

How did I get through? 

With the help of two things:

1. Dandy blend lattes

2. Snacks and lots of em.

These chocolate truffles totally helped. Yes they have A LOT of ingredients, but they are total perfection. Don't wait. Seriously. Don't
