Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Image
I was craving something sweet but not with too many grams of sugar so I went hunting for a easy and healthier recipe and trusty old Pinterest came through.  I found a couple of recipes but this one was easy and most of the ingredients were already in my pantry.  It was Ambitious Kitchen, a peanut oatmeal chocolate chip cookie with no flour or butter.  I of course tweaked it to my liking.  Below is my version but you can click the link above for Monique's version.  Keep scrolling for my take on the recipe.








Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix together 2/3 cup oats, half teaspoon salt, 1 tbsp PB2 and 1 tsp baking soda and set aside. In a separate bowl beat 2/3 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup raw sugar, 2 large eggs and 1 tsp vanilla with electric mixer until smooth. Mix in dry ingredients with plastic spatula, then gently fold in 1/2 cup jumbo dark chocolate chips.  Roll cookies into 2 inch dough balls and place onto cookie sheet 2 inches apart, then flatten the top of the cookie  and use you…

Meal Prep Monday

Image
I have been unmotivated lately but I had a aha moment recently. I had been doing so well and life issues made me eat anything and stopped working out but I am officially back on track.  I’m super excited and motivated and have a new goal to not only get my body in check but my life also. I like to meal prep lunch and dinner  for 3 to 4 days so I usually cook on Mondays and Wednesdays or Thursdays. For meal prep I made two beef dishes, beef teriyaki with broccoli and jasmine rice for dinner and beef with broccoli and potatoes foil packets for lunch. For breakfast I either have steal cut oats with turkey bacon or an egg white omelette with turkey bacon. For snacks I have either yogurt, a protein shake or cheese with turkey. I enjoy cooking so meal prepping is easy and fun for me.





                    Check back next week for more meal prepping. Thanks for reading and as always feel free to comment. XOXO Lola K.

Update: 30 Day Personal Challenge

Image
Today is the last day of my personal 30 day shake challenge.
                 The plan was to drink two shakes a day, one meal, two snacks and 2 mango teas a day.  Week 1 was pretty easy but by day 4 drinking two shakes, two snacks and a meal was too much for me so day 5 through day 15 I went down to one shake, one snack and 1 meal a day.  By day 15 I think my body was used to the mostly liquid diet.
               Day 16 through 29 I alternated between one to two shakes depending on my hunger levels.  It was pretty challenging but I would definitely do it again.  With exercising 3 times a week I lost a total of 5 pounds, I like the idea of drinking a shake for breakfast, it is a easy solution for the mornings.

I'm Back!!! 30 Day Personal Weightloss Challenge

Hi!

                 It has been forever but sometimes you need a little social media hiatus but I am back and still living a clean life.


                 So Sunday I started a 30 day personal challenge, I have been going to a fit camp for a couple months and I have seen pictures of some of the women who are apart of this particular group and you can definitely see the transformations their bodies have gone through.
                I decided to try out the plan they have for weightloss which is 2 Herbalife shakes, I add my own protein just for a extra boost, 2 snacks and one healthy meal a day for weightloss, I have also been drinking the teas once or twice a day.  I have been trying to eat healthy and exercise regularly since the beginning of the year and have really been motivated to change the way I look at food.  I am human like everyone else so there has definitely been some setbacks but along the way I have loss weight and have kept it off (yasss for exercise and veggies haha…

I used tumeric, garlic powder, salt free all purpose seasoning, sea salt, cracked black pepper, garlic flakes and red pepper flakes

Meal Prep Sunday

Image
Hi and welcome back!!!

On Sunday I decided to meal prep for the week, I find it easier for me to eat right if I have food prepared.  I'm not really a fan of leftovers so to make sure I didn't get burned out I made three different entrees.  Because I only cook for myself it usually takes one hour or less.  This week I made sauteed shrimp, beef with peppers and stuffed flounder.  For the sides I made steamed spinach, steamed broccoli, roasted sweet potatoes and brown rice.  I alternate between salads and my meals I cooked for lunch and dinner.  I kept my portions pretty small and daily for breakfast I eat turkey bacon or crumbles with egg whites in either  an omelette, scrambled or on a whole grain english muffin with peppers and half an orange.   I eat 5 times a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 snacks.  I try to stay hydrated so I make to drink at least a gallon of water daily.  Next time on the blog I will share some of my fave recipes.
