DELICIOUS RECIPES FOR LOW-FAT COOKING

DELICIOUS LOW-FAT RECIPES

I love to cook for my family! Each day I make an after school snack for my children to come home to. There’s nothing like coming home to the smell of freshly baked cookies or a delicious hot meal after a long day at school or the office. 


All of the cooking I do is low-fat, high in protein & fiber when possible. I can take any recipe and make it low-fat. It’s fun to be creative in the kitchen and having everyone love my cooking without adding extra calories.

Below are a few of my favorite low-fat recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner that I enjoy making and are very delicious and satisfying.

ENJOY!

 These meals are low in calories and will keep you full for hours along with keeping your digestive track happy too.  Each recipe is low in fat and high in protein & fiber (the breakfast & lunch recipes). I hope your family comes to love these meals as much as my family does. 

And remember to drink Liv Sxinney throughout the day & take Crave between or before meals to lose weight along the way.  Cooking and baking at home together as a family is an absolute treat! Bon Appetite!

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY

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
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
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.
