So today I could not get out of bed for the life of me! sheesh! But when I finally did, I was craving another good workout on the Elliptical. I headed to FitSugar.com and checked out the 30 Min Cardio Blast.
*SPM = Strides Per Minute
**RPE = Rate of Perceived Exertion
Incline = 20 percent
I upped my resistance since I was a little different machine type. The highest level I was at was 11 and the lowest was about 6 or 7. I was a sweety mess afterward!
Remember how yesterday I wanted to try Those Chicken Soft Tacos? well…
It was a success! I had a Tofu Taco salad with romaine, grilled Tofu, avocados, corn, cherry tomatoes, black beans, and diced green peppers. I squeezed a little lemon juice and some Tahini for dressing. Carson had the Chicken soft tacos with cheese, green peppers, and black beans! (hes not a fan of tomotoes or veggies to be honest) Think I can convert him?? It was so tasty! Check out the recipe here! Chicken Soft Tacos. So healthy and so satisfying! Still thinking about how tasty that was last night:)
After lunch today I was craving something sweet so I headed over to Pure2Raw and found a recipe for Low Sugar Carob Chia cookie. These are gluten free and don’t contain any dairy! I am a huge huge fan of Carob so I had to try these! One problem…I didn’t have all the ingredients… so here is my version!
Low-Sugar Carob Chia Soft Cookies inspired by Pure2Raw
*My Version (original recipe is on their site)
- 1/4 cup sucanat sugar (may use regular sugar if you do not want it to be low-glycemic)
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 drop powdered stevia
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, liquid
- 2 tbsp mashed banana (mash in food processor)
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- 3 tbsp carob (or cocoa if you do not have carob)
- 3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend (use any GF blend you like or regular flour. I used a mix of Almond and Coconut Flour)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp all spice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl.
Add in vanilla, water, liquid stevia and applesauce. Stir.
Next add in coconut oil and stir till well combined.
Coop your carob cookie dough onto a cookie sheet and place in freezer for 15 minutes.
Then place chilled cookies into warm oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes. (ours baked for 12 minutes)
Makes: 11-12 cookies
Time: 15 minutes to set in freezer, 12-16 minutes to bake cookies
Here they are! (I know the quality is bad but I’m saving for a good camera!)
Tasty! Remember, you have to be a fan of a Carob taste to enjoy these. If not, just use cocoa powder:) but I loved them! so thank you Pure2Raw!
What should I make for dinner tonight?? any Ideas!
