Berry Cheesecake Protein Fudge

If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw pictures of last night’s coyote sighting: (I can’t help but think, “They see me rollin’.. they hatin’…”) I was driving to Zumba and paused to let a pack of coyotes walk past. I snapped a quick shot from the side window and called the Pilot to…
