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.

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!

    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!

     

    Full video demo below!

    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

    Two Side Effects of Drinking This Coffee…

    I started drinking my special coffee about two months ago…

    I expected the boost in energy, the better focus, the curb in sugar cravings (Click to Grab my Sugar Detox Guide)

     

    But there were two side effects I didn’t realize would happen… 

     

    One thing I learned was as we age, collagen production declines — you’ll notice it in your looser skin, more wrinkles and less elasticity.

    Your hair may even lack that shine or just grow at a slower rate. And sometimes, you’ll just feel “extra stiff” #growingolder

    Now, I finally found an easy way to get what I need without the hassle.

     

    Watch to Learn how this coffee can help you this winter:

     

     

     

    I started drinking this coffee as my breakfast most mornings mid October… first thing I noticed was all the energy without the crash (which was HUGE!), plus I just stayed full a really long time without craving any sugar… (I’m a reformed sugar-aholic)

     

    Then… the longer I drank it, the more I realized that my jeans were getting loose… I have been about the same size for three years. Maybe I would gain a little and then lose it, but never dropping below a size (and I was really okay with that!)

     

    So this was a HUGE surprise to find that my size 4 jeans were realllllly saggy in my trouble zones (backside and thighs). This was almost becoming a miracle coffee, haha.

     

    I was actually losing weight through Halloween and Thanksgiving?!?! 

     

    I didn’t really believe it… like I kept thinking “maybe I just need to wash my jeans – they must just be stretched out”

    But even after a fresh wash, they were still too loose.

     

    So I went shopping… and I actually picked up a size 2 thinking – I am sure I’ll have to send these back “There is NO way they will actually fit!”

     

    Low and behold… I left the store with three pairs of size 2 jeans… I’m still kind of in shock. But to prove it, I’ll post a picture of me wearing them: 

     

     

    The second thing I noticed were my nails… they were getting really white tips and strong…. This collagen coffee is really giving me what my skin and nails need this winter!

    I have never really been great at taking supplements… but one thing I am good with is drinking coffee, haha! I have learned that the key to success is found in your daily habit.

     

    If you can take a habit you are already doing and make it healthy… you are more likely to keep doing it!  read more
