The Big Lie...

The Big Lie...

Do you know the absolute BEST way to GAIN weight? Not eating. Does that come as a surprise? Fasting for extended periods of time actually slows your metabolism (your body’s rate of calorie burning). Add to that the fact that you will lose muscle and energy by not supplying your body with proper nutrients. Instead of not eating at all try just eating less calorie dense foods like fruits and veggies!

I found this delicious MOSTLY fruit Strawberry Cheesecake Blizzard recipe and you have to try it!

Strawberry Swirl: 1 cup strawberries, hulled 1 tsp lemon zest 2 large medjool dates, pitted 2 tsp coconut oil Crust: 1/4 cup raw almonds 1/4 cup raw pecans pinch of sea salt 4 large medjool dates, pitted Banana Soft Serve 2 banana, peeled and frozen 1 tsp lemon juice Strawberry Swirl: 1. In a food processor, combine the strawberries, zest and dates. Process until smooth. 2. Add the coconut oil and process until well combined. 3. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to thicken. Crust 1. In a food processor, pulse the almonds, pecans and sea salt into a fine meal. 2. Add the dates and pulse until well combined. Banana Soft Serve 1. In a blender or food processor, blend the bananas until a creamy, ice cream consistency is achieved. 2. Add the lemon juice and pulse to combine.  Assembly: 1.
