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!

 

Check out my recipe for a 1-Minute Chocolate Muffin in a Mug!

    Is THIS the secret to Reaching Your Goals?

    How much time do you really need to form a new habit??

    The secret to REACHING your New Years Goals to to make small changes in your daily life.

     

    If you change your daily habits, you can change your life!!

     

    Based on a recent study, on average it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact.

    There is no reason to get down on yourself if you try something for a few weeks and it doesn’t become a habit. It’s supposed to take longer than that! (This is why Most people give up on their New Years resolutions by Valentine’s Day)

    The secret to reaching your goals is by making 1% changes that you can KEEP long term. For example, taking an afternoon walk, remembering your daily vitamins, going to bed 30 minutes earlier.

    When you can make these 1% daily changes, you are much more likely to keep them long term and that is how you reach your long term goals!

     

    Consistency isn’t sexy, but it works!

    I say this all the time to my business partners! I say it so much, because it really is true. Consistency is the secret to winning. It is doing the same thing day after day that gets you closer to your goal. It is in the daily process. 

    If you want to be healthier… it starts with making healthy choices not just one day, but day after day.

     

    You don’t have to be perfect. 

    Making a mistake once or twice has no measurable impact on your long-term habits. This is why you should treat failure like a scientist, give yourself permission to make mistakes, and develop strategies for getting back on track quickly. Failing brings you closer to your success. 

     

    Embracing longer timelines actually help us realize that habits are a process and not an event. All of the “21 Days” hype can make it really easy to think, “Oh, I’ll just do this and it’ll be done.” But habits never work that way. You have to embrace the process. You have to commit to a system.

    1% changes are what makes the BIGGEST long term impact.

     

    What are small changes you can start adding into your life that can help you reach your long term goals?

    Why Do You love Trim Healthy Mama? Real Mom Answers

    Why Do you Love Trim Healthy Mama? Real Mom Answers

    I love Trim Healthy Mama for me and my family, but I wanted to share that I’m not the only one who loves this plan. I interviewed my sister (who is also a whole food eater) to see why she loves Trim Healthy Mama. 

    She is the mother to 4: 3 boys and 1 girl; Ages 11 – 3. She is a work from home mom. She has her doctorate in Accounting and teaches online courses. Her husband is currently in medical school about to start residency later this year. Here is why she loves Trim Healthy Mama. 

     

    What are the reasons you love Trim Healthy Mama? 

    In a quick response: 

    I love that it Encourages you to enjoy the foods God gave us.

    Encourages a mindset of fueling the body.

    Focuses on nourishing the body and being healthy not just being skinny.

    Empowering.

    Flexible.

    Family-Friendly.

    Budget Friendly.

    Life Friendly.

    Not overly restrictive. 

    How have you changed how you eat since starting Trim Healthy Mama? 

     I would say I’m eating lower carb. I can identify with Whole Grain Jane from the book; I was eating mostly homemade, natural foods, but looking back, getting too many carbs in the form of honey, fruit, natural sugars, grains, etc.

     

    Definitely more focused now on trying not to combine fuel sources (fats and carbs). I think about what the ingredients are in foods. I know how to pair foods now to make a meal either Satisfying or Energizing. That is a change since reading THM.

    How do you cook for your kids on Trim Healthy Mama? Do you cook differently for them or the same?

    Well, I don’t feel like I’ve changed much. We already ate at home (my cooking). I already used butter, coconut oil, etc. I do tend to cook a side just for them – rice, sweet potatoes, something easy. My husband and I just choose not to eat it (if it doesn’t fit in with a satisfying/s/high fat, low carb meal). And I have modified my recipes some to fit the plan.

    Sometimes I give the kids cheese or something when I serve energizing (E/low fat meals, moderate carb) meals. Always something easy. 

    What are your go to snacks right now? 

    My favorite snack if I only have a minute is a light cheese stick and a slice of deli turkey. I’ll make it into a roll up. If I have a little longer, I’ll make a brownie in a mug or a hot chocolate or a shake. I also like celery sticks with cheese or peanut butter. I also really like boiled eggs if I’m okay with a satisfying snack. I like the cocoa almonds and trail mix. I also like the cottage berry whip and the cottage cheese and cocoa whip (recipe in the book). 

     How to you save money on Trim Healthy Mama?

     I don’t think I’m saving more money eating Trim Healthy Mama, probably about the same that I was spending before though. I try to shop frugal, scout out deals, shop online, etc.

    Low Carb Broccoli Tuna Casserole Bake

    This Low Carb Broccoli Tuna Casserole Bake is a special request for my dad. He loves tuna casseroles and is really trying to eat healthier these days along with our whole family. I made a similar recipe for Thanksgiving that was just a broccoli casserole. This adds in some great protein from the tuna (or salmon) to get good Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet.

    I love broccoli. I love it in casseroles, in stir-fries, and as a simple side dish. Broccoli is so healthy for your too, full of vitamins and minerals. read more
