Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

My sweet tooth struggle is a tough one. Most gluten free baked goods just don't deliver on texture and flavor. You'd think this would help with that sweet tooth issue but it doesn't. Well, one night I was scrolling through Facebook land when I came across a recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies. 1 C… Continue reading Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Meal Prep Week 27

MealPrepWeek27 I am a little late with this post-like two weeks. Sorry folks, between work and holidays, I just got a little busy and sidetracked. About that holiday... How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was great minus the six pounds I gained. I way overate and I allowed myself to have some gluten for the long… Continue reading Meal Prep Week 27

Meal Prep Week 25

MealPrepWeek25 Today is my last day of the 24-Day Challenge. I want to reflect on it for just a moment. I lost a total of seven pounds.

Meal Prep Week 22

MealPrepWeek22 After a weekend spent enjoying nothing but gluten and carbs and gaining weight, it's time for real change. Today I started the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge. So far, so good.

Meal Prep Week 20

MealPrepWeek20 Whoever said eating healthy was easy may have fibbed a little. Which leads me into the issue at hand-cheat days. I took the meaning of cheat days the last couple weekends to a whole new level and pretty much undid all the good I was doing during the week. Logging my calories at the… Continue reading Meal Prep Week 20
