How I Lost The Baby Weight While Nursing

Six months ago, I was at the heaviest weight of my LIFE!

If ABS are made in the kitchen… fat burning coffee is my secret ingredient…

Guys, Iโ€™m going to be very honest with you…

6 months ago, I was at the HEAVIEST weight of my life.

I had gained 40 pounds (or more) when I was pregnant with my 3rd baby… and I was a little nervous that I would never lose the baby weight.

I am one of those mamas who struggle to lose while Iโ€™m nursing… or at least I had in the past.

But this time was different…

Because from day one I focused on 3 things:

  • 1- Drinking my fat burning coffee each morning to give me healthy fats (which not only makes my milk richer but also fuels my metabolism)
  • 2- Not missing ONE day of my greens superfood powder that gives me all the fruits & vegetables my body needs (plus makes healthier milk too!) – but is a natural daily detox & helps with cravingsย 
  • 3- My herbal skin tightening treatment that nourishes my skin and helps it tighten from the outside using herbs and botanicals.

I do try to eat healthy most of the time… but I also splurge weekly (like this weekend I had pizza & ice creamย ย just being real guys!) read more

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.

Why is it so important to pay attention to how much sugar we eat?

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

ย 

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

ย 

Where is sugar hiding?

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

And it isn’t just sugar that we have to be aware of… it is everything that turns into sugar after we eat it… namely “Carbs.” read more

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!

 

 

 

Here’s the Recipe Breakdown:

 

Ingredients

1 Egg
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of baking powder (I prefer an Aluminum Free option if possible)
Pinch of salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of almond butter (try to stick with unsweetened if possible!)
1 packer of stevia sweetener (my preferred no calorie sweetener)

Directions

  1. Grease a large mug (I usually recommend Coconut Oil)
  2. Mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute on high

And that’s it!

 

I’m simple, yummy, and has almost no sugar (and a little protein from the egg!)

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!

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?) read more
