Challenge of the Week

New Challenge for this week 😊

80-20 Rule
Strive to eat healthy 80% of the time and eat your favorite guilty pleasures 20% of the time. If you live by this rule, you will not feel guilty when you have an occasional piece of cake; just count it as your 20%.
What helps me eat this way is having healthy foods at home, and I also take Skinny fiber, which really helps control the cravings. That means no cake, cookies, or chips at home and I enjoy these foods when I eat out. Instead, at my house there’s a lot of fruit, vegetable, and whole grains. I have snacks too such as freeze dried fruit and air popped popcorn. If I want a treat, I’ll jump in my car and go get one but I never keep junk food in the house. Sometimes, if it’s cold and don’t feel like going out, it passes and I forget about it! Or I would make up a treat from our “Dessert Album” in this group, using healthier ingredient choices
Let me know what you think!💜

Woohoo, Jean! Down 50 pounds!!

Woohoo, Jean! Down 50 pounds!!
This is my dear friend Jean, she is 73, can you believe it?! The Doctors were almost ready to put her on insulin, and now they have LOWERED her Diabetes meds! They are also lowering her blood pressure meds, too! Her blood sugar readings started regulating within her first month of taking Skinny Fiber! So proud of this awesome lady! It is NEVER TO LATE to make changes and get healthy!
Jean Says:
“Because of my diabetic problem, my sugar kept going up and would not come down. Doctor was thinking of starting me on insulin, and of course, I wasnt happy with that. After seeing Carrie and Skinny Fiber, I decided I was going to give it a try.
Before long, my sugar was back down to normal, my A1C was 7.5 and three months later is now down to 6.5, Very happy with that. We are keeping a close watch on it, when it comes down lower, will have to stop taking some of my meds. All in all, other problems I had have -pretty much cleared up. I will take Skinny Fiber as long as I can, whether I need to lose weight or not. I will be 74 in September and feel like Im in my 50s. lol.”

Low Carb

LOW CARB   Cheesy Garlic Bread
This version is completely grain free, gluten free and low in carbs. The smell that wafts throughout the house while it’s baking is simply mouth-watering. Butter, cheese and garlic? Sign me up, right?
For taste authenticity, add a bit of yeast to this recipe. No, yeast won’t work on grain free flours (boo!), but it definitely lends that familiar flavor of “real” bread. Bake the dough in a 9×9 square cake pan (greased very well) and then turned it out onto a cookie sheet or just
 free form it. The dough isn’t incredibly thick, but it’s thick enough that you’ll get a rustic bready base. If you want the square, just bake it in the pan. If you do bake it in the pan, it’ll probably be thicker than it would be free-form. Honestly, that sounds good to me.
It’s definitely more biscuit-y, but I promise– it’s also deeeeelicious!
Cheesy Garlic Bread
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 10 servings
Carbs per serving: 4g carbs, (2g net carbs)
Ingredients
Bread Base
1 1/4 C almond flour (I useWellbee’s)
1 T coconut flour
3 egg whites, beaten until fluffy
2 T olive oil or avocado oil
1/4 C warm water
1 tsp. live yeast granules
1 tsp. coconut sugar (or honey or molasses– will be eaten by yeast)
1/2 C shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. xanthan or guar gum (optional)
Topping
1 C shredded mozzarella cheese
2 T butter, melted
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine almond and coconut flour, salt, baking powder, garlic powder and xanthan gum. Stir well.
In a small cup or bowl, combine warm water and sugar and stir until dissolved, then add yeast. Set aside for a few moments.
To the flour mixture, add olive oil and yeast-water mixture and stir well with a rubber spatula. Add in beaten eggs and continue to mix.
5. Add in the 1/2 C mozzarella shreds and mix gently with your spatula until a nice dough is formed and cheese is mixed well throughout.
Grease a 9×9 square cake pan or large cookie sheet. Put batter into cake pan or cookie sheet. If you’re free-forming on a cookie sheet, loosely form the dough into a rectangle or square.
Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15-17 minutes or until the sides of the crust turn golden brown. Remove and top.
In a tiny bowl, combine butter, garlic powder and salt. Mix well, then brush over the top of the garlic bread base. Be sure to get the butter over every inch!
Top the bread with shredded mozzarella cheese, then sprinkle that with Italian seasoning.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. For final 3 minutes, turn broiler on to brown the cheese.
Remove from oven and let bread stand for 5-10 minutes before serving (if you can wait that long).

Low Carb

Bread is a major part of the modern diet.
Many people are eating some type of bread with most of their meals.
But there’s a problem… a significant percentage of the population is now intolerant to gluten.
Bread is also high in carbs, so it is out of the question for people on low-carb diets.
Not to mention that modern wheat is problematic for several reasons.
However, there are many alternatives that taste just as good as regular bread.
Oopsie Rolls
Cook time
40 mins
Low Carb
Yield: makes 6 oopsie rolls
Ingredients
Nonstick cooking spray
3 large eggs
⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar
3 ounces (100 grams) full-fat cream cheese, cold, cubed
⅛ teaspoon salt
Instructions
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with nonstick spray.
Separate the eggs, making sure no yolk gets into the whites and placing the whites in a clean, non-greasy bowl.
Using a clean, non-greasy electric whisk, whip the egg whites and the cream of tartar until stiff.
In a separate bowl, use the same whisk to whisk together the yolks, cream cheese and salt, until smooth.
Using a spatula, carefully fold the egg whites into the cream cheese mixture, working in batches. Work by placing a mound of egg whites on top of the yolk mixture, then gently fold the yolk mixture from under and over the egg whites, rotating the bowl, again and again until the mixture is incorporated. You want to use the folding technique because you want to keep the air bubbles intact in the egg whites.
Spoon 6 large mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently press with a spatula on the top of each mound to flatten just slightly.
Bake 30-40 minutes, until golden-brown
Cool a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet, then gently transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store leftovers in a slightly open Ziploc bag in the fridge for a couple of days.
Notes
The original lucky mistake that resulted in oopsie rolls was made by Kimber from Your Lighter Side.
