Skinny chocolate-S

This recipe got us through some tough sugar withdrawal days. It really does taste like a naughty piece of chocolate, but it is actually bonafied "crunchy mama" health food.

Excerpt from the book " Many who have tasted this recipe say it tastes similar to the Almond Joy candy bar. It is a good way to get your servings of virgin coconut oil."

1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup virgin coconut oil
plan approved sweetener

  1. melt 1 cup virgin coconut oil in the microwave until it liquefies
  2. add coca powder, sweetener(we use 4tsp. Truvia) and optional ingredients.
  3. Wisk until blended
  4. pour into parchment lined glass pan or candy molds
  5. freeze until solidified
Can be enjoyed right from the freezer or softened in the refrigerator.

chopped nuts
ground instant coffee
unsweetened coconut
natural extract or essential oil

Lentil Soup

  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 4 Carrots
  • 4 stalks Celery
  • 3 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Cups Lentils
  • 1 tbsp. Cumin
  • 2 qt. Chicken Stock
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Serves: 6-8

Set a large, dry Dutch oven over medium heat and drop in the Garlic cloves with their peels still on. Let them toast for a few minutes on each side, until the skins are browned and fragrant, and set aside.
Roughly chop the Onion, Carrots, and Celery. Add the Olive Oil to the Dutch oven and sauté until browned and tender.
Peel and smash up the Garlic and add it back to the pot, along with the Lentils and Cumin. Cook for a few seconds, until the lentils are nicely coated in oil. Empty the Stock into the pot. Simmer until the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. Fish out the Bay Leaf and Thyme. Season with Salt and Pepper.

Fooled Ya Pizza- s

mozzarella cheese
1.Lightly steam 1 bag of frozen cauliflower; or two large heads of cauliflower.

2.Put lightly steamed cauliflower into colander and press out as much of the liquid as you can. I use a paper towel to help absorb the moisture as I press. Make sure that you wring out as much as possible.

3.Put cauliflower in a food processor and pulse a few times; until you get rice-sized pieces.
4.Add 3/4 cup Egg whites and pulse again. Add two cups grated mozzarella cheese, a pinch of salt, dash of Italian seasoning and a little bit of both onion and garlic powder. We also like to add a bit of the Pizza dough seasoning from the King Arthur Flour company.
5.Mix ingredients well with a spatula inside the food processor. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and grease parchment well. This is very important or the crust will stick.
Plop entire mixture onto the middle of the tray and spread it outwards until it fits most of the tray. Try not to have a thicker middle than sides.

5.Bake at 450 degrees F. for 20 minutes. Carefully flip crust to other side and bake for 10 more minutes.
 6.When finished, top with as many delectable pizza goodies as you wish-then bake for about 12-15 minutes. This is incredibly Delicious, and works well as the perfect crust replacement.

Cake in a Mug-S

1 egg
2 Tbsp Cocoa powder
3-4 tsp Truvia

1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
