We don’t care how badly we want those bikini bodies, it’s never enough to completely give up our sweet treat breakfasts. Celebrity trainer and CEO/Founder of Clutch Bodyshop Ashley Conrad understands our dilemma, and is making sure this summer, we don’t have to choose bikini or pancakes.
Ashley is sharing two super clean and super tasty recipes that thanks to her Clutch Baking Mix are totally bikini body friendly. Not only that, but they’re food allergy friendly- the mix is free of wheat, dairy, soy, gluten, preservatives, and artificial ingredients, BUT it’s full of protein. Basically if you want a beach body but have a sweet tooth, it’s your dream come true.
