Low Carb Cinnamon Tortilla Chips with Cinnamon Pecan Cream Cheese Dip

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

 

You find yourself REALLY wanting a sweet snack but knowing that you REALLY don’t need all the sugar?

 

That’s like my whole life right now! Managing my tendency toward gestational diabetes means that I really can’t deal with sugar or carbs so I’ve been experimenting!

 

Here’s my latest creation!

 

Low Carb Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

4 Low Carb Tortilla (I LOVE this one!)
1 Tablespoon of Butter melted
2-3 Tablespoons of stevia blend
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

 

Directions

Brush melted butter on each side of tortillas.

Mix stevia & Cinnamon together.

Cut tortillas into 6 triangles each and dip each side into stevia/Cinnamon blend.

Bake at 350 degrees on baking tray covered in parchment paper for 10 minutes.

 

Cinnamon Pecan Cream Cheese Dip

8 oz of cream cheese softened
1 tablespoon of stevia blend.
1/4 teaspoon on cinnamon.
1 Tablespoon of chopped pecans.

 

Directions

Beat together cream cheese, stevia, and cinnamon until smooth.

Fold in pecans.

 

Note: The stevia blend I use is a cup for cup substitute for sugar (this one is a good choice if you want to try it!). You can use any sweetener you like, just sweeten to taste.

Sugar has been identified as leading to cancer, obesity, heart disease, diabetes… and can even make you age quicker.

 

But one thing that most people don’t realize is how SNEAKY sugar really is!

 

Where is sugar hiding?

Sugar is found in almost ALL of our foods these days.

1 Minute Chocolate Muffin in a Mug

Chocolate makes everything a little better doesn’t it?

I’m always on the hunt for chocolate snacks that satisfy with my sweet tooth without overloading me on the sugar!

 

Note: If you didn’t know, I have struggled with Gestational Diabetes with each of my pregnancies, here’s some info on how I beat it naturally!

 

Given my history and just being honest with myself, if I don’t find sweet things (with chocolate hopefully!) that is satisfying I’m going to end up chowing down on cookies or ice cream.

 

Thankfully I have a new favorite (and SIMPLE) recipe!

1 packer of stevia sweetener (my preferred no calorie sweetener)

Directions

  1. Grease a large mug (I usually recommend Coconut Oil)

Healthy Keto Iced Mocha Frappe

It’s summer in the south and that means it’s HOT!

Hot weather makes me want a cool treat, but since most of them are LOADED with sugar and other unhealthy options, I try to get creative.

For example, what I used to get in the past from Starbucks has 36 to 50 Grams of sugar (depending on size). Yikes!

 

So here’s a simple homemade frozen mocha that I love! And you end up with only about 3 Grams of Sugar per serving! Not to mention this home option saves you money as well!

 

Ingredients

* 1 Packet of Keto Coffee

* 2 Scoops of Chocolate Greens

* 6 oz of water

* 4 oz Unsweetened Almond Milk (or whatever milk option you prefer)

* Ice to preference

 

Directions

You simply blend the ingredients together and blend! I prefer my ninja blender for individual servings (but any blender should work fine!)

You can either pour it over ice, or blend it to make a Frappe. Either way, delicious and healthy!

Why is Grassfed Butter Good for You?

As you may can imagine… given the title of this blog… We like grassfed butter and we cannot lie, haha.

 

But what the heck is it and WHY is it good for you???

 

What is Grassfed Butter?

Grassfed Butter is just butter made from cows who eat grass…

Cow are supposed to be eating grass, Right? Sadly this shouldn’t be so usual… but we see that many conventional dairy products come from cows who are given feed other than their preferred diet of grass. You can read more about that in the Omnivore’s Dilemma 

Because these cows are fed grass, the butter that is made from the cream of cows getting a diet rich in beta-carotene – resulting in higher nutrition for you! 

 

Although you may have been told that butter is bad for your health… That couldn’t be further from the truth.

 

Let’s look at Grassfed Butter’s nutrition facts: 

Grass-fed butter nutrition is even more impressive than regular butter nutrition.

For example, 14 grams of butter, which is just under a tablespoon at 0.93 tablespoon, contains about the following nutrients:

  • 100 calories
  • 11 grams fat (with 7 grams saturated fat and 0 grams trans fat)
  • 30 milligrams cholesterol
  • 500 international units vitamin A (1o percent DV)
  • 0.4 milligram vitamin E (2 percent DV)

    How To Eat Enough Protein Without Meat

    I was never a huge meat eater… and it wasn’t really on purpose. I just tended to eat more carbs (even healthy ones) but I realized how important protein really was for my health and weight loss goals.

    When I was pregnant, my midwife told me that I needed even more protein in my diet to help my baby grow. That’s when I started looking for ways to add protein into my diet without eating more meat.

     

    What my video to learn how I added more protein into my diet without eating more meat:

     

    Non Meat Protein Sources:

    • Greek Yogurt
    • Cottage Cheese
    • Quinoa
    • Beans
    • Lentils
    • Peanut Butter
    • Nuts
    • Chia Seeds
    • Hemp Seeds
    • Ezekiel Bread
    • Eggs
    • Hummus

     

    When I was pregnant, I dealt with so many food aversions and almost ALL Meat was off the list… that’s when I really learned about using protein powders and how they can supplement your protein intake.

     

    Now, my whole family loves drinking smoothies and making snacks using protein powder to keep us full longer and avoid the sugar crashes.

     

    What is your favorite way to add protein into your diet?
