Halloween is right around the corner, and you know what that means: the treats are everywhere. I wanted to share a few tricks and treats to help you get through Halloween without sabotaging your weight-loss goals.
It is amazing how quickly you shift from summer fruits to fall desserts. Within days, my house was infused by the smell of pumpkin vanilla candles, my kitchen smelled of pumpkin cookies, and pumpkin spice lattes are my new favorite treat. I couldn’t help but get right to baking some of my favorite fall pumpkin cookies.
Roots like carrots, sweet potatoes, and turnips, are a rich source of nutritious complex carbohydrates. Instead of upsetting blood sugar levels like refined sweet foods do, they help regulate them.
How about a breakfast treat that you could practically eat for dessert (and I would actually encourage that!)? Yes? Well, my Raspberry n’ Cream Crepe Rollups are just what you need then. They are sweet enough to eat for dessert, but are also packed with protein to help fuel your day as a breakfast treat.
Loaded with the perfect mix of carbs and protein, low sugar and less than 150 calories per cookie, these make a great go-to snack when you want something a little sweet. The best part is, there is no baking involved and the entire recipe takes only about 5 minutes to prepare.
Check out my Bikini Body Chocolate Chip Cookies. Less than 100 calories per cookie, ONLY 2 grams of sugar and 5 grams of protein, these low sugar treats will be a hit with the entire family! I got the seal of approval from my kiddos so you know these cookies are winners!
Fall has finally hit, which means we are in search of more nurturing and comforting things to eat. We are start to cook a little more, start to introduce those delicious fall flavors, roast things and really embrace alllllll the delicious things more than ever. So what better time to ditch the beige food and embrace all the colorful things and give your metabolism a boost along the way. This dish can be a side for any lean protein shared for two or an entire meal for all those plant based foodies out there. Studies have shown that eating "rainbows" or colorful foods is amazing for your metabolism, so don't be shy, get experimental if you like, the more color the better with this one.
Typically when I write my recipes, I will just list a generic whey, casein or blended protein in the ingredients. However, every once in a while I come across a protein that I just can’t help but mention and Jamie Eason’s signature protein line has led me to do just that! Enjoy!
In the back of the produce section, hidden behind sections of beautiful bright, shiny vegetables, in an array of eye-popping Crayola-crayon colors, there’s an unassuming, misshapen dusty-looking vegetable that can catapult your training and support heart and artery health at the same time. Consider beets nature’s perfect sports and heart-friendly food wrapped up in one sweet— though unusual looking— package.
