DESSERT ALERT! I just made this and it’s literally so good it should be illegal. Saw an unhealthier version of this on pinterest but I fitblr’d the shit out of it.
- Slice banana down the middle
- Put it in a little foil boat
- Top with nut butter (I used almond), chopped walnuts, a few chocolate chips, cinnamon
- Bake/broil till the chips/nut butter begin to melt
- Serve with greek yogurt mixed with some cinnamon
- INHALE IN 2 SECONDS
I want to try this!
OMG I made two weeks ! That might not seem like a big deal but it is. Still having a hard time eating all the lbs of raw and cooked vegetables with the four fruit. BUT am slowly finding new ways to add to my meals. Yesterday I added shredded apples, beets and carrots to a salad with balsamic vinegar and honey mustard dressing. I could of eaten a vat of that stuff.
I think in order to succeed you have to really look around to find interesting ways to prepare food. With today’s resources it is a lot easier. Keep on surfing. I also have a lifetime of collected cookbooks which I am finally dusting off and reading. Great resources ! The beet, carrot and apple salad came from a old cookbook that was my mom’s
So what have I learned in two weeks? I am totally surprised how much better I feel with no sugar and dairy. For the first time in years I am sleeping 6-8 hours a night and waking up feeling really good. I have lost weight but not sure how much because I am not weighing myself because it makes me crazy. I am using the JEANS test!!!!!! Every woman alive knows when they gain or lose weight by their jeans!!!! The JEANS SHRANK IN THE DRYER is just one of the lies we tell ourselves! You spend a lot more time in the produce section. It is funny because there is so much stuff there that I don’t have a clue about! I am trying once a week to pick something and cook with it. This week it was whole beets. Have had beets but always canned. Cooked beets are wonderful and totally a great addition to my treasure chest! TWO things I couldn’t live without my vita-mixer and electric vegetable steamer.
Hard to believe I made the 1 week mark and am on to week two. Trying to read everything I can to find creative ways to EAT TO LIVE requirements. The thing that keeps me going is how much better I feel. I still find it hard to eat a lb of raw and cooked vegetables.
Found a good web site http://fatfreevegan.com Has good ideas on many different things such as dressings.
I have tried every diet and have had moderate success but I hate counting and doing all lowfat stuff full of who knows what. This life change seems so much healthier.
Today it is 60 degrees out and all the snow has melted! But I am sure winter is still out there waiting to kick our asses!
Eating a pound of cooked and of raw vegetables is HARD!!!!!!! But I am sticking to it. Went to William- Sonoma for a cooking demo and got some good ideas. They have free classes on Sunday mornings and Monday nights.
Instead of salt use lemon and honey to add flavor. Salsa can be used on veggies.
I took a jar of salsa added honey, lemon and ground pepper and ran it through my vita-mixer. Great topper for cooked veggies. Hate eating them plain! Can’t wait to use this on a baked potato.
Also a tip about smoothies! Make them the night before and put in a cup with lid. It is great to get up in the morning and have your breakfast ready!
