Keto Cheatos

            2017-01-08-08.55.33.jpg.jpg

I am so happy (and a little impressed) with these “cheatos”:-) They are suuuper low carb and totally satisfy my desire for a crunchy snack! They are great for dipping, too! Try softened vegetable flavor cream cheese, hummus(watch the carbs!), sour cream, cheese sauce, etc. AND they go amazingly along side chicken or tuna salad. Lastly, you can use them as a fun  salad topper…almost like a crouton!

The macros for the WHOLE recipe are 31F/2nC/36P ❤

This is the EASIEST soup you will ever make! And it is perfect for adding things to. This time, I added chopped up chicken breast but feel free to throw in other veggies, cooked pasta, spinach (I know, I just said veggies), beans, other cooked meats & sausages, cheese…the list goes on and on.

It is simple, fast and healthy which are all things I love in a soup! It also makes 6 servings, so when I make it, Daniel and I can enjoy it throughout the week.

And don’t be scared to toss on the toppings! Vegan sour cream, cilantro, salsa, etc., etc., etc.

Garden of Life® Introduces Dr. Formulated Magnesium Relax & Restore

               MAGNESIUM IS IMPORTANT.

relax-restore-750x750

It’s found in every cell, it’s the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and it’s necessary in over 300 reactions within the body.

But unfortunately, most modern farming practices have led to soil depletion of minerals including magnesium. This, combined with a lack of fresh foods, the consumption of a highly processed diet and other contributing factors, is why dietary intakes for most have diminished significantly.

Well, we’ve got good news for you! Garden of Life is excited to introduce its newest extension to our best-selling Dr. Formulated Probiotics line: Magnesium Relax & Restore.

Cabbage Soup

Do you all remember that crazy “Cabbage Soup Diet” that was all the rage 10-15+ years ago? I sure do! My dad tried it a few times and even after the fad was over one thing remained…THE SOUP!! I always absolutely loved the soup!! 😀

I know it might sound crazy, especially if you are familiar with how strange the diet was, but I swear up, down, and sideways that the soup is amazing! And it the ingredients are veggies, veggies, and more veggies. It is like eating a salad…but hot…or cold, actually, because I love it both ways!

It may not be the most beautiful dish you’ve ever laid eyes on but just trust me…You want this in your life.

Raw Coconut Cookies (LC/Keto/Vegan)

These…are…SO GOOD!!!!! These have such amazing flavor and are light, simple, not too sweet and just melt in your mouth. Plus they’re raw so they are quick and simple to make AND give you a good serving of healthy fats ❤IMG_20160218_132707I made these for Valentine’s Day this year (hence the heart shapes & pink frosting) but you could make these any ol’ time and leave the frosting white or make it any color you’d like, for that matter. They keep for a week or 2 in the fridge and could be made in larger batches and kept in the freezer.

(makes about 15 cookies; 7F/1nC/1P per cookie) Continue reading “Raw Coconut Cookies (LC/Keto/Vegan)”

Homemade Seitan (say-tan)

I have finally perfected my seitan recipe and am SO excited to finally share it with everyone! The recipe you’ll find below makes 7 servings so feel free to double (or triple) it if needed. If you do, however, I recommend baking it in 2 (or 3) logs.

Seitan is such a great source of protein and I definitely utilize it every day in my meals because each serving gives you 26.5 grams of plant-based protein! Not to mention it tastes wonderful. It does have a slightly chewy texture which is the initial turn-off for a lot of people…but my recommendation is to slice it (or dice it for, say, a stir fry) and fry it up in a pan with some oil or nonstick spray until it gets a nice and crispy on the outside. Once you do that it should look something like it does here:

_20151222_095142

<– This meal is one serving of the seitan (I think about 80g or 2.8oz), couscous, and steamed broccoli 🙂

The seitan cooks up like this in just a couple minutes and makes all the difference. It is also PHENOMENAL sliced thin, cooked up, and layered on a sandwich with avocado and veggies galore 😀 Continue reading “Homemade Seitan (say-tan)”
