Change...

Posted on August 14

CHANGE.... it is not easy, it is uncomfortable and it is often time consuming to change a routine. I, like everyone, get a bit cranky when I have to change my routines, including how I eat. BUT..... I try to keep my focus on the end results to get through the periods of change.

Keto Breakfast Chocolate "Oats"

Posted on August 04

Ingredients:

1/3 cup (38 g) walnut pieces, chopped
1/4 cup (38 g) chia seeds
1/4 cup (24 g) MCT oil powder or 1/4 cup (60 ml) MCT oil

Optional
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
2 tablespoons cacao powder
2 tablespoons erythritol or 4 drops of liquid stevia
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon finely ground sea salt
2 cups (475 ml) milk (nondairy or regular)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Place the chopped walnuts, chia seeds, MCT oil powder if using, cacao nibs, cacao powder, sweetener of your choice, ground cinnamon and sea salt in a larger airtight container at least 4 cups (950 ml) in size.
Rotate the ingredients until everything is fully coated.
Add the milk and vanilla extract, stirring until everything is incorporated.
Cover and place in the fridge overnight, for at least 12 hours. When ready to serve, stir well then divide evenly between four bowls and enjoy.

Notes
Will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Make it nut-free: omit the walnut pieces and use coconut or dairy milk.
If the chia seeds don’t gel up after 12 hours, it could be because of the brand used. This doesn’t happen often, but if it does to you, just add 2 tablespoons more of the chia. Or, let the mixture sit out on the counter for 4 hours or so.

Healthy Eating.....

Posted on July 29

Healthy eating is not about one food, one meal, one day or even one single week ... it is about patterns over a longer period of time.
One "cheat" meal does not disrupt a healthy eating pattern and one "good" meal can not undo chronic poor food choices.
