Keto Friendly Peanut Butter Chocolate Fat Bombs

Since my transformation back in December, I must say I am super proud of how far I have come. I reached my goal weight by simply following a 1200 calorie diet and a lot of exercise. As my body got used to the same routine I took somewhat of a break and figured I should enjoy whats left of my summer and I have

gained a few pounds but hey thats the beauty of this lifestyle there is no destination. Its a constant change and I truly love it! Well now that my birthday is coming up in October I am ready to transform my body yet again and this time I’m doing it the low carb way. Ive tried many times these past couple of weeks to get it right but today I can say my mindset is where it needs to be to stick to this plan to see the change I want to see. As my sweet tooth attack happened I had to search for a craving killer. So a good friend of mine shared a recipe with me to try. Let me just say I am sooooooo thankful she did! I did make some modifications and I’m going to share the recipe I followed with the ingredients I used. I hope you can use this as a guide to keep you on track as well!

RECIPE:

1/2 Cup of Organic Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup of Natural Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
(I used 1/2 cup of powdered peanut butter )
(Less than 5 grams of sugar is important)
2 to 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of Splenda or Stevia 
(or sweeten to taste)
A dash of Vanilla extract (Optional)

1. In a large pan heat and melt your coconut oil and peanut butter.
2. Stir in your cocoa powder and splenda.
3. Once removed from the heat you may add your vanilla extract. 
4. Pour into silicone candy molds or even small cupcake holders.
Each mold or holder should hold one tablespoon of the mix.
Place in the freezer and until you have chocolate candy looking deliciousness.

You can eat one fat bomb when that sweet tooth craving starts or if you want to curb your appetite.

If you’re anything like me I like to keep track of everything on my LoseIt App. So my calculations for the nutrition facts for 1 piece comes out to 
80 calories
 1.5 grams of Protein 
1.8 Carbs 
9 grams of Fat

Also you should keep them zip locked air tight and in the fridge or freezer as they will melt being at room temperature.

Enjoy!

Hello Fresh Review

HelloFresh is an international meal delivery company with a presence in the United States, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Australia, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Canada. I ordered a family meal package and had it delivered Tuesday. At first I was


not to sure if I was going to like the food they sent but was eager to try it. My meal box arrived and I unwrapped it. The food was well packaged and I like how they put the two ice pack sheets in the box to make sure the meat didn’t go bad. I unboxed my package and put it away in my fridge. The next day I finally got up and prepared my first meal, which was mini meatloaves, red cabbage and sweet potato wedges. The recipes were super easy to follow and WOW the cook time was less than 35 minutes! I was amazed at how delicious everything came out. Hello Fresh sends you everything you need to make the meals from the produce and meat down to the seasoning. Take a look at my cooking photos:

I absolutely LOVE the idea of this company and will continue to order! Try it out and use my code for 40.00 off your first box! You cancel or skip weeks anytime and its all easily done through an app on your phone. Let me know what recipes you try or are your fave!

Chicago Bulls vs Miami Heat!


Today was an amazing day! Once a month a like to do something “big” whether its going to a concert or traveling or anything to build a memory thats fun and not something I can do every day! Life is so short and as J.lo says in her song we must LIVE IT UP! Any way back to the point! We arrived at the united center
at 11 am to watch a 12pm Game of the bulls vs miami. If anyone knows me im the type to always get the best of the best so I dont waste my time on nose bleed seats. Im not saying they are bad they just arent for me. I know not everyone can afford the seats I like and hey its what you make of the experience so im not knocking it! My section was 103 row 6! Yep thats right by the tunnel the bulls come out of! As we got there we misplaced a ticket but found it (thankfully) after that little scare it was smooth sailing and the game was ALOT of fun! OH let me add BULLS WON!

Arturo’s Tacos Chicago – SAVE YOUR MONEY!

Let me start off by saying I USED to LOVE this place! It is located right at the corner of Armitage and Western in Chicago,IL.

Their tacos used to be delicious and I was always a satisfied customer but after visiting today for the first time in 9 months I can honestly say i will NEVER visit this place again! I ordered a taco dinner which came with 3 tacos a side of rice and refried beans. Let me start with the tacos. I requested them to be steak or carne asada the steak was GREASY! The greasiest steak I’ve ever tasted! It was almost like it was left over and reheated. I also think they changed the quality of steak because it tasted cheap! The rice was good but not fresh either and the beans were good but again not very warm. The waitress was nice but didn’t even bring us water! Its kind of rude to look at the next table and see everyone with a glass of water before they order! That really pissed me off! My husband was going to tip her but they don’t allow tips on a credit or debit card and nowadays who carries cash?? On a scale of 1 to 10 1 being the absolute worst I rate them a 1. If you can save your money and avoid this place please do! Its totally not worth the time or money!
