TIP OF THE DAY...

HEALTHY MOVIE SNACKS

Having your pantry stocked up with healthy snacks is a great way to start a weekend. So when you want to watch a movie or a favorite TV show after a busy week you can make a yummy low calorie snack to help you relax and unwind. Snacking is an emotionally satisfying. Just be wise and kind to your body by choosing healthy snacks that will make you feel good at the end of the day.

HEALTHY SNACKS

1. My favorite! Air-popped popcorn. Use low calorie butter spray and a dash of cinnamon and you've got my favorite treat! It's low in calories & fat and high in fiber & also has protein, so you can enjoy it without guilt.

2. Hummus. Another great healthy snack. Cut up your favorite veggies for chips and you've got a crunchy, delicious treat.

3. Blended beans and salsa. I love fat free refried beans or blended black beans mixed with salsa. For chips I cut up Mission wholegrain tortillas (that are high in fiber and protein) and bake them in my toaster oven. You can also cut up wholegrain pitas, place them on a pan spray butter spray, sea salt and Parmesan cheese and bake them in the oven until toasted - it's wonderful!

4. Fat free cottage cheese and low fat yogurt. I eat this combination daily. It's high in protein and low in calories and its light and refreshing.

Remember that there is nothing wrong with snacking, only wrong choices when choosing to snack. ;)

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen

Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
