Treats on a DIET

I talked to a friend today who started her diet again.  I wish her all the best of luck.  

The problem with starting any diet is that it is harder to do if you are surrounded by other people in the house who are eating cookies and other good things.  It is really hard to stay focused because you see the cookie.

It is important to surround yourself with things that you can have daily that will satisfy you, so you won’t feel left out or deprived.

I keep Amberlynne.com chocolate in my house, plus good tasting protein bars like Power Crunch, etc.  I use them as one of my six proteins for the day and they taste good.

Also, find recipes for things that you can make.  My friend made Jorge Cruise’s chocolate cake in a mug.  I have had those, and they are easy and good.

Flour choices:

1.  Coconut Flour.  High in protein and fiber and low in digestible carbs.  Use it to make breaded foods.

2.  Almond Flour.  healthy fats, high in protein and monounsaturated fats.Use it for baking. It adds moistness and a rich nutty taste.

3.  Flaxseed Flour.   Rich in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.  Use it to make cookies, pancakes, muffins and cakes.
