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?

Here’s my latest creation!

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. read more

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!

Can Intermittent Fasting Help Me Lose Belly Fat?

I wasn’t the biggest fan of fasting when I was growing up… because of my blood sugar problem – I would always crash (and get really sick) when I would do it.

So I thought fasting just wasn’t for me!

I know many people avoid it because let’s be honest – WE LOVE FOOD. (but that’s probably the biggest reason why we SHOULD be doing intermittent fasting, right?)

There are lots of benefits to intermittent fasting (besides just weight loss) and this could be a really great first step of helping your body reset and start getting results you want. read more
