Hoppy Fridayyyyy my little bun buns!
A few of you have asked me for more before and after photos because they help you to stay motivated and on track. I searched my computes for quite some time to find old photos, but noticed that I don’t have too many full body pictures of myself. I was usually very covered up or couldn’t stand photos of myself, so I deleted them. Anyways here is another before and after to show you guys what rabbit food can do for your body! I hope that this can inspire you guys to eat more rabbit food!
So last week I said that I was going to go prop shopping for my kitchen/blog photos. That semi-happened, but I literally cannot get away from black and white props! It’s my fav! The Coco Chanel kitchen lives on!
I love love love dessert. I get my sweet tooth from my mom, who can literally eat candy and cookies like there’s no tomorrow and maintain her petite frame. I wasn’t blessed with that same gene, but man I love me some sugaaaa! I’m the kind of person that cannot live without dessert or a little something sweet every day. Instead of traditional store bought cookies loaded with oil, salt, refined sugar, and bad saturated fats (not to mention the totally addictive-cannot-stop-eating-one-after-the-other feeling that comes along with them!), I took to my kitchen to give an old fav a healthy spin! I wanted to make a super clean, healthy, peanut butter cookie that can be enjoyed with coffee and good conversation. Something that feels indulgent and naughty, but is actually quite filling and good for you!
Believe it or not, this recipe only calls for 7 ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already!
Single Serving PB Cookie
1 Tbsp almond flour
1 Tbsp coconut flour
1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1/2 Tbsp egg whites
1/2 tbsp chocolate chips (or 1 tsp mini)
1 packet stevia
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Spread the dough onto a microwave safe plate and flatten into a cookie shape. microwave for 1:15-1:30 minutes.
AHHH snack attack! We all get them. I can eat clean all day, but once nighttime comes around, I get the craziest cravings for sweets and junk food. Cravings will usually pass within 15 minutes if your body is not truly hungry.
Try going for a walk around the block to distract yourself from thinking about food and try drinking a glass of water to determine if you are just thirsty. If 15 minutes go by and you are still craving something to snack on, I have some tricks for you!
Kick those cravings in the hiney with these simple treats that will satisfy without derailing your day of healthy eating!
Frozen Fruit: I like to buy bags of frozen fruit from Trader Joe’s and keep them in my freezer. Fruit is great for a sweet tooth, but frozen fruit is even better because it will slow down the rate at which it is consumed so you become fuller faster. My favorite fruit to freeze are green grapes. These bite-sized sweet snacks are an awesome alternative when you are craving candy or sugar. Frozen grapes take longer to eat since they are cold, which will help you to eat less compared to grapes at a normal temperature.
Tip: wash and dry grapes and remove them from the vine before freezing.
Shelled Pistachios: When I want something salty I will eat a small serving of shelled pistachios. De-shelling each nut takes more time and effort than grabbing a handful of unshelled nuts, which will make you more aware of how many you are eating.
La Croix: If you ever crave soda, this is a great alternative for you. I love this pure sparkling water because it is flavorful and bubbly and does not contain any added sugars, artificial flavors, or chemicals that other popular soft drinks have. It only contains carbonated water and natural flavors. Lemon is my favorite! La Croix can be purchased at Whole Foods and most Target locations.
Swiss Miss Diet Hot Chocolate: If you ever crave chocolate, this is the answer to your prayers! For only 25 calories and 2g of sugar, you can have your chocolate without throwing off your day of healthy eating! Works like a charm.
As with any snack, don’t forget to measure out a serving and watch your portion size to prevent eating too much of a good thing!
Question: What do you do when you get a late night snack attack?
