two new creations you’ve got to try

22 Mar

I’ve been experimenting of late trying to come up with some tasty yet healthy treats. Below are two of my creations!

Ingredient:

  • full fat plain organic yogurt
  • scoop chia seed
  • scoop whey
  • tablespoon coconut oil
  • frozen organic raspberries
  • tablespoon ground flax seed
  • splash of full fat organic milk

This is a yummy but low in sugar treat that I think I could enjoy just about anytime of the day although this morning it was my breakfast!

My other creation:

I made this bad boy for dessert last night. Very little sugar and soooo yummy.

Ingredience:

  • fresh berries
  • organic heavy whipping cream
  • vanilla
  • tablespoon honey
  • organic dark chocolate shavings

I’m not going to lie, it was probably one of the best things I’ve eaten in a long time!

breakfast of champions!

My favorite hot cereal from Bob’s Red Mills add to that, organic heavy whipping cream, organic butter and a drizzle of pure maple syrup and you have the breakfast of champions!!!

I only eat this many carbs by themselves if I’m going to be doing something crazy active (thus this being the breakfast of champions, only eat this when you’re going to be doing something active!)….which I will be doing in oh, less than a half hour. An hour of hard swimming should eat all those yummy carbs up! Plus I made sure to eat enough fat (hence the heavy cream and butter) to slow all those carbs down in my system).

Cold pool on a cloudy day, here I come!

on eating fat

20 Feb

Fat. Yes, fat. I love fat and fat is good for you. A whole host of reasons exist for why fat is so good for you and  I can’t cram it all into one post. SO, I’m going to do it as a series of posts. I’ll address the reasons and kinds of fats that are good for your health. As you read, you will quickly realize I don’t subscribe to conventional wisdom when it comes to the kinds of fats we should be eating. But as Michael Pollan has started showing us, conventional “wisdom” of what we should eat, is fraught with bad and misleading science. I instead turn to Weston Price as a source of wisdom founded in historical case studies of traditional diets.

Look for the next post on fat and its importance in hydration (believe me, its cool)!
