Super Rich Coconut Choc Fudge

SuperRichCoconutChocFudge

I love it when I have cooking weeks where everything works! I had a few disasters not that long ago where the result was so bad that even I couldn’t eat it – very rare as I hate to waste food. But this week was truly stellar, so here is one of the recipes today and the rest will follow in the weeks to come.

I love this one because it is super easy, as is my preference but again it was just a tweak on my Chocolate Tweets mix that made it completely different, rich, decadent and just all over Oh My Goodness!

White Chocolate Nut Fudge

weight loss

This recipe was too yum not to post on here asap.

So I may have hit on something I like even better than raw cacao chocolate – if that’s even possible? I wondered what would happen if I just left out the cacao powder and coconut oil when I was making my chocolate tweets (‘cos the coconut oil and cacao can be kind of overpowering) and ramped up the butter and nut butter content.

Well, it’s kind of awesome.

Protein Choc Blocs

 

weight loss, healthy, sugarfree,

Everyone seems to live life in a rush these days, racing to work, play or exercise and while I don’t think it’s slowing down any time soon, how you manage to eat well on the run plays an important factor in your health.

This is why I love my protein packed treats that you can make once a week and keep in the fridge or freezer for a quick breakfast or snack any time.

Chocolate Protein Chews

healthy, weightloss, raw cacao, coconut oil

This recipe was another accident as I am still on my quest to make a brownie type of treat without a truckload of dates in it. Everything still turns out yum, if not an interestingly different texture to what I envisaged. However once again it’s good enough to add to the recipe list and something I would make again.

Peanut Slab

Peanut Slab

I am currently reading another book called Big Fat Lies by David Gillespie and it is awesome.

The basic premise is that sugar and seed oils contribute hugely, massively and in gigantic proportions (did I emphasise that enough??) to our overweight epidemic.

I was nearly going to write about it today however Easter is coming and I didn’t want to spoil it for you. And besides I think everyone will be more receptive to the message after they are feeling sick on commercial chocolate after Easter and we are all wailing, “never again!”

Jump for Almond Joy!

I was given an opportunity by the lovely people at nuts.com to explore the world of Almonds. And since I already use them in some of my cooking, this was a fun exercise to learn a little more and experiment with my cooking creations.

So you already know I’m quite mad about nuts as they pack quite a nutritional punch and Almonds are no exception. A quick look around about them claims they are high in biotin and Vit E and also have manganese, copper, Vit B2, phosphorus and magnesium. Also high in protein and good fats. Apparently they are good for helping diabetes, heart health, improve blood fats, weight loss and seem to be quite the miracle food. However you know me by now and unless eating them makes me feel good, I don’t necessarily believe all that’s written.
