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!
Do you remember the White Chocolate Spiders recipe from years ago that was basically melt white chocolate, add peanut butter, tip in crunchy noodles and that was it? I used to love them and then feel sick afterwards from all the crappy stuff in it.
Just another quick little recipe that I have featured on Instagram before but haven’t managed to post here.
In the past, if there was ever a choice of cake going around, my preference was always cheesecake. Not sure why, but it just hit the spot. The more I learn about good fats, blood sugar spikes with too much sugar and carbs and the rest of the havoc caused by wheat products (currently reading Wheat Belly by William Davis MD and having mind blown,) I am coming to understand more why my body would choose this high fat treat option. It knows best!
On your journey to weight loss, discovering a better way to make your favourite taste sensations is critical if your new lifestyle is going to last for the long haul.
So many people I see are trying to lose weight again and again, because they were able to muster enough willpower/determination for long enough to stay away from the cookie jar or keep going to boot camp for 3 days a week and get some results, but once that laser focus is relaxed even for a little, it comes piling back on again. So I’d say the method is wrong, wouldn’t you?
So how was your protein intake from last week’s blog? Are you getting enough or too much maybe? As promised though, here is my shake recipe that I use to boost my protein if it’s looking a bit on the low side…
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.
