Homemade Candies that taste sinful but are naturally sweetened sugar-free goodness.
Contributed to the HealthWealth Newsletter by Renee T, whose family loves this recipe and she wanted to share with Oak Grove!
Mini Cupcakes to satisfy your chocolate craving while being free of: Gluten, Dairy, Nuts, and Guilt. Plus, just for good measure, they are virtually sugar free as well! My favorite sites for inspiration are healthylivinghowto.com and lowcarboneday.com and this recipe is basically a hybrid of a few of their Chocolate Cake and Mocha cupcakes recipes. I often end up having to experiment a bit as I try many of their recipes as I don't always have the correct items on hand or I have the time needed to scratch make components.
This high protein, nutrient dense, frappe was created to be a day starting kick-off or afternoon pick-me-up. My daily coffee house stop wasn't just about the beverage itself, it is the pampering of having someone else prepare it for you and not having to worry about the clean up. My favorite Starbuck's in Kowaski's Market will allow me to hand over my container of mixin's and they will blend it for me with my purchased Doppio Shot (double shot of espresso) and ice. Of course you can blend it all together yourself, but for me, the few bucks is worth it on my quick stop in before work. It is still a lot cheaper this way than to purchase their Frap's as offered on the menu and I get such incredible, friendly service, it makes my morning!

Please visit my friend's website, www.healthylivinghowto.com for low carb, low sugar recipes that will inspire you. Vanessa has created a recipe for Banana Chai Seed Pudding that is great, but since I am a chocolate freak, I needed more... Hence, the Chocolate Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Banana Pudding. A little more to it to thicken it up, but worth the extra effort for this very nutritious and amazingly tasty number.
Up the ante to a traditional slaw. Vegetarian recipe that could easily include more protein by adding more chia, hemp and sunflower seeds or even sprinkle in some rice or pea protein.
If you happen to be an omnivore, add some shredded chicken or pork to be a potluck salad.
This nutrient dense breakfast/brunch is very tasty and filling. *Using goat's milk/cheese instead of cow's milk allows this to be A-Okay for my son that has an intolerance to Casein.
A hot bowl of oatmeal definitely falls into the "comfort foods" category, but the carb overload can make your morning move slow. This version will provides more protein than net carbs, tastes scrumptious, all while keeping you satisfied for hours!
I am on a Kale Kick and wanted to make a soup with the Kale as the primary ingredient, BUT, I felt compelled to try to disguise the taste as the rest of the family is not yet as inspired as I am. Kale has more calcium per calorie over milk, more iron per calorie over beef, it offers essential omega fats and a decent amount of fiber. I am sure I am not the first to come up with this combination of ingredients, but after the flavor being so successful with my family, I felt compelled to share!
