Do I have your attention? 

I mention all the time that I EAT my daily superfood shake more than I drink it. We make ALLLLLL the things from cookies and pancakes, to ice cream and of course... cookie dough! It gives me variety in how I get my nutrition in. EVERYONE needs to supplement. STOP buying CRAP vitamins at the store that don't even make it to your digestive system. ENZYMES are where it is at and my shakeology is FULL of plant enzymes. It has been my secret weapon to staying cancer free and fit for 6 years now. Ready to give it a shot? Get your shakeology HERE 

I also use a digestive health fiber boost. So what would normally make you bloat (cookie dough) will help flatten out the tummy. You can get your digestive health fiber boost HERE. One of these tubs lasts me a month and makes a TON of cookie dough as well as other yummy treats.

Now here is how I made this delicious brownie cookie protein dough.

Protein Cookie Dough

1 Tbsp almond butter
1 Tbsp raw honey⁣ or pure maple syrup
1 packet or scoop vegan or reg chocolate shakeology⁣
1 scoop Digestive Health fiber boost⁣
a pinch of pink himalayan sea salt⁣
A few tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk⁣
optional: chocolate chips!⁣

Put all the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add almond butter and honey, or maple syrup. Slowly add 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk while mixing. Keep adding milk slowly until you reach your desired consistency.

Eat up. Store what you don't eat in an airtight container in the fridge. If you want all the probiotics and prebiotics then eat within 30 minutes of making. 

Healthy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Eat the cookie.

Yes I did say I am a health and fitness coach that specializes in nutrition. 
But eat the cookie. :)

I see no reason why you can't be healthy and have your cookies too. These cookies are loaded with protein and nutrients. EVERY ingredient counts to make them a great addition to your healthy lifestyle. They are naturally gluten free and grain free, and naturally free from refined sugar. YES of course there are calories. A whopping 90 calories per cookie. BUT they are calories that count! Making it an easy swap. Instead of a spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter, have these instead. 

You are welcome. 

These contain:

Almond flour is high in protein, manganese, vitamin E and monounsaturated fats, low in carbohydrates, and contains fiber. ALL good things!

Raw Honey is rich in Antioxidants, it can help lower Blood Pressure, improve Cholesterol. and can lower Triglycerides.

Pure maple syrup contains numerous Antioxidants, helps fight Inflammatory and Neurodegenerative Diseases, helps protect against Cancer, has many vitamins and minerals.

Cinnamon is loaded with Antioxidants, has anti-Inflammatory properties, helps reduce the risk of heart disease, helps improve sensitivity to insulin, and lowers blood sugar levels.

Pink Himalayan Salt helps balance electrolytes, increases hydration, helps balance PH so is great for keeping in an alkaline state, helps prevent muscle cramping, strengthens bones, lowers blood pressure and more. 

Eggs  a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat than the yolk. Eggs are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.

So dig in and enjoy yourself some yummy healthy snickerdoodles!

Healthy Dark Chocolate Brownies

Listen, there is NO WAY on earth I would EVER ask a person to give up chocolate. 

Chocolate is the bomb dot com. It makes the world go round. It saves lives... okay, I may be getting a bit dramatic, but still. 

Okay, switching to my healthy ways... Chocolate is a POWERFUL source of Antioxidants! It improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, raises HDL and protects LDL from oxidation, it reduces the risk of heart disease, improves brain function, and so much more. So of course I am going to say EAT THE CHOCOLATE.

The thing is, so many have chocolate ALL WRONG. You have to stay away from the storebought crap. It isn't good for you. It rarely has a lot of real chocolate in it. It is full of sugar and other chemicals. 

Get Cacao NOT Cocoa. When you know better, you do better. 
So grab a great non-gmo organic bag of CACAO and let's get started! 

Healthy Dark Chocolate Brownies

2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon pink himalayan sea salt
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/2 cup raw honey
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl add almond flour, cacao, baking powder, sea salt, and mix together.

In a small size mixing bowl, add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, almond milk and eggs. Mix

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Add in chocolate chips to the brownie batter and stir to combine.

Pour the brownie batter into the baking pan, and spread in an even layer.

Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Use the parchment paper to lift the cooled brownies out of the pan, cut and serve.

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

Shark week. 
Need I say more ladies?
It is the week that all your hard work can go out the window because the evil Bitch wants chocolate and she wants it NOW!
Not this time.
This is what we do. 
We pause for a second and realize we CAN have it, we just gotta make it! 
We are like everyone else. We have cravings. We just know how to make them healthy. This is how I help people lose weight while EATING everything they love. You just need the knowledge! Knowledge is power and I help people online with their nutrition. If you need help, be sure to send me an message.

Back to these amazing cookies.
I would take these over any other cookie any day of the week. Especially fresh from the oven. If you use Enjoy life chocolate chips then this recipe is free from most allergens. I use God given sweetener. The syrup from a tree, or the honey from a bee, and very very little of it. I find a 50/50 blend of the two makes for perfection. These are also gluten free, grain free, soy free, and PACKED with protein. 
These boast:
150 calories per cookie
5 grams protein per cookie
3 grams fiber per cookie

So they actually add nutrition. The ingredients are wholesome REAL food. You can cut back on the calories if you want to lower the chocolate chip count, but I say INDULGE! Having one of these is like having a scoop of peanut butter healthwise... so GO FOR IT!
