Crunchy Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies-Healthy Snack
I know I know…….. Another chocolate chip cookie…… LOL
I just can’t get enough! I have to keep making them and tweaking them until I find the best ones. And let me tell you this one is a winner. Its delicious! The taste is amazing, the texture is awesome and all the ingredients are good for you.
I have something that is going to make your life so much easier……. Its a shopping list for your pantry, fridge and freezer.
If you stock up this way,you will have everything you need to lose weight, gain lean muscle and you will be able to pretty much make any of my recipes, get it here: HEALTHY SHOPPING LIST
That is what I love about healthy recipes like this. Its almost hard to believe that a cookie this good can be good for you. But the truth is that it is! Don’t you love healthy cookie recipes. I love that I can feel like I am indulging in something but it really is good for you.
Eating these helps me “EAT CLEANER”. Believe it or not. Especially on the weekends when most people give themselves some EXTRA slack and eat MORE “off the diet”. If I eat one or two of these cookies, I’m good, I don’t feel the need to eat something that is NOT good for me. And even for afternoon snacks, you know that time of day that you get tired and sleepy and something COMFORTING sounds really good. Well, with a healthy snack like this, you can actually eat something yummy and comforting without “MESSING UP YOUR DIET”.
By the way, I find that a lot of people’s results and lack of weight loss happens because of the “CHEAT MEALS or DAYS”. I tell you all about how you can control those so you can still enjoy food but not mess with your results here: Controlling Cheat Days!
Another huge point that people are missing the mark on is the types of foods they are eating.
There are some foods that may not seem “so fattening”, but they are very inflammatory foods. Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard for your body to burn fat. So no matter what you do or what you eat or how many times a week you exercise, you will not lose weight.
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, its the foods you should consume 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 18 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
And then, make a PLAN!
Having a plan is half the battle when it comes to losing weight and getting fit. If you have a nutrition plan and a workout plan and you are consistent with it. The results will amaze you! That is why I created my MMF Healthy Meal Plans E-Book. Because so many women were always telling me that they don’t know what the right combinations of food are in order to be able to lose weight. They don’t know what to cook and how to make it healthy. They are tired of eating the same bland and boring “diet foods” and they ended up just binge eating after a few weeks of “dieting”.
All the ladies that are doing My MMF Healthy Meal Plans E-Book and following my DETAILED meal plan and recipes say they are loving it. They are loving the meals, snacks and getting great results. I love it when they say they are eating more than ever and losing weight. LOVE IT!
