Fudgy Chocolate Protein Muffins
Is there anything better than enjoying what feels like an indulgence…….. but without the guilt.
I think there is nothing better!
When you can eat super healthy and NOT feel like you are on a DIET, then you will be able to be more consistent with your healthy eating. And if you are more consistent, then you will get better results and most importantly, MAINTAIN them.
Do Diets Work?
Too often people do these DIETS in an attempt to lose weight but they are so deprived and so miserable that the 5-25lbs they lose in a few months, they end up gaining right back…… and MORE!
This is why I am on a mission to show people how to cook healthy but yummy and how to eat often and eat a variety of different foods. I love food and I hate hate hate to eat the same foods and meals over and over. It just makes me feel like I’m on a DIET. And when I feel like I’m on a diet, I actually do worse!
Eating the same thing all the time gives you the sense that you are “on a diet”. There is no need for that! I got your back. That is why I wrote my book Eat To Be Fit, with over 300 Healthy Recipes that aren’t just “healthy”, they are DELICIOUS and also super easy to make. You will be surprised as to how easy eating healthy is when you really enjoy it and when you have OPTIONS.
Food…. Diet, is the main reason people do not see weight loss.
From my own personal experience as well as 2 decades of experience working with all types of people, I find the lack of results comes from people eating the wrong foods as well as lack of consistency with their diet plans for the same reason we just discussed. People try to “diet”, deprive themselves too much, and then can’t stick to it long enough to see results.
I know that having a plan really helps me.
Actually, its definitely what has helped me take control of my eating and be able to finally see my abs and be in the best shape of my life (and maintain it).
So, I’m going to hook you up and give you a Meal Plan for the month.
Click here to download it (for free), you will have a cool calendar with clickable links for every meal (5) for every day. And you will then get one every month. I know, super awesome.
I just know that this is the key to controlling your eating, so I want to help you. You are going to love the recipes and meals and don’t worry, they are all super easy to make.
Don’t Eat This Anymore & Lose Weight
So the first thing I want to do is give you a list of the foods you should take out of your diet….. like TODAY! These are foods that are super inflammatory and though some may think are “healthy”, they are not and they could be the culprit for your lack or weight loss or results.
Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard if not impossible to burn fat. So in order to be able to burn fat so you can lose weight effectively, its crucial that you take these foods out of your diet.
This is so important and makes such a huge impact on your results that I decided to compile these foods into a PDF for you. So go to the following link where you can download this information for free. I also added a list of 5 Foods that are NECESSARY for you to include in your diet if you want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET TONED. Foods that you should eat daily!
I also took the liberty to share with you a short video of my favorite 5 ABS EXERCISES. The ones that have gotten me ABS after having 2 kids (daughter is 15 months) and I never had them before. Here is the link so you can download the PDF and get the VIDEO. Start applying it right now. Take those 5 foods out of your KITCHEN immediately! LINK TO PDF & VIDEO
It’s Ok To Be A Chocolate Lover
Now if you haven’t been following me for a while, I must admit right off the bat that I am a CHOCOLATE LOVER. I love anything with chocolate in it and if I was told I couldn’t eat chocolate again I think I would die. LOL. No, seriously, I would not be very happy.
I hate depriving myself of things I love anyhow, so I have found ways to still indulge in chocolate without the guilt, without the yukky calories, sugar and fat.
So I am always testing and trying new recipes that I love sharing with you. So you will notice that a lot of my recipes for healthy snacks do have chocolate in them.
You will find more of my yummy and super healthy recipes on My Pinterest Boards and they are all organized by categories, so make sure you go there now and hit FOLLOW ALL so that you can have access to all of them and start trying them out. You will see how much fun and enjoyable eating healthy can actually be.
Something else that will really help you is being prepared.
As you probably know, you have to eat every few hours a small healthy meal in order to speed metabolism and be able to burn fat and lose weight.
It can be hard to cook and eat very 3 hours. Especially if you work.
So taking the time on the weekends or when you have an extra hour to prep for the whole week.
That’s what I do. And its the only way I can be consistent, get results and never feel deprived and on a diet.
I make meal plans weekly, like I literally write them down, I make shopping lists weekly, I go to the grocery store once a week to get everything I need for my meal plan and I cook 2 times a week. That’s it.
I also wake up at 4am, train clients in the mornings, have a growing online business that takes A LOT of my time and I have a one year old and a 5 year old. So I AM BUSY! But if I can do it, so can you!
Listen, if you don’t have the time to do this every week or you just maybe don’t even know how to put a healthy meal plan that will help you lose weight and not feel on a diet, I get it. It’s taken me years to figure it out.
But if you want, and you are ready for it, you can get MY MEAL PLANS. The ones I designed to get the best results, doing the least amount of work, and enjoying every meal. I follow them myself.
I have had clients lose 20-30 lbs on it eating more food than ever, not feeling like they are dieting and not feeling like they are cooking for hours at a time.
So if you want My Meal Plans, you can get them here. And they come with Cardio and Weight Workouts so its like having your own Personal Trainer/Nutritionist/Chef LOL.
You will love the MMF Healthy Meal Plans, they literally changed my life.
I now have healthy meals every week and I’m organized, I make them quick, I always have healthy snacks and I get great results.
Actually, I am in the best shape of my life. After 2 kids, I actually have ABS that I have never had before. And I really think it’s because I finally mastered the EATING. The planning, the pairing the right foods together and at the right times. Its truly a lifestyle and not a diet which is why I can be consistent and get great results.
I know you can too!
So get to cooking and experimenting with different foods. Get prepared, have a plan, and you will see how soon you will enjoy the process of losing weight and you will feel great, look great and be happy!
It’s the best feeling.
You can start off by experimenting with one of my favorite Chocolaty Snacks.
These Fudgy Chocolate Protein Muffins are a great example and you won’t even believe what the secret ingredient it. But you have to try them. They are crazy yummy and gluten-free and super low in sugar!
- 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained "secret ingredient"
- 1/4 cup agave nectar or Stevia to taste
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup unsweetened organic cocoa powder
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3-4 tbsp chocolate chips gluten and dairy free (I use Dream)
- 3-4 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (Prograde)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Meanwhile in a food processor, place all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and coconut.
- Once well incorporated and blended, fold in the chocolate chips and shredded coconut.
- Place batter in a coconut oil sprayed muffin pan and bake for ~ 15-18 minutes or until done.
These are so good, you won’t even believe how healthy they are.
And remember, in order to SPEED METABOLISM so that you can burn calories all day long and lose weight and get lean, you have to eat every 3-4 hours. This is very hard if you are not PREPARED with healthy snacks like this that by the way are GLUTEN-FREE.
But you know me, I always give you options.
I want you to try to make these, but when you are in a hurry and have a busy week and don’t have time to make healthy snacks like this and the ones I have on My Pinterest Boards, then that is the perfect time to enjoy a DALES PROTEIN BAR.
They are the healthiest Protein Bar I have ever seen. They are made with 100% natural ingredients, no GMO’s, Organic and Low in Carbs and delicious. What more can you ask for? I always order a box and have them at home for when I need the them.
You can’t get them anywhere. They bake them and send them directly to you so you can only get them online. Check them out here: DALES PROTEIN BAR.
They are the only protein bars I will actually eat because its like eating real food.
