Low Carb Chocolate Fudge Avocado Brownies

Low Carb Chocolate Fudge Avocado Brownies

Hey hey all! Soooooo I have finally found my cooking mojo! I lost it there for a bit, but I’m back in action and loving it. Today I decided to make a recipe for my “Find Your Balance” Community members who are doing an intermittent fasting challenge. Many of them are struggling to eat enough fat in their last meal, so I thought this would be a great healthy dessert option for their last meal. These low carb chocolate avocado brownies are low in sugar and extremely high in fiber. So much bang for your buck in every bite, and soooooo yummy! Ok, Lets get down to business now… Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gather all ingredients, a food processor or blender, spoon, an 8 x 8in or 9 x 9in baking dish. Add the raw almonds to the food processor/blender and process until a flour like texture. If you have almond flour, skip this step obviously.  Next, add all ingredients in the blender, except the stevia, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Blend well until the avocado mixture is smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. After spraying your baking dish with cooking spray, pour in the chocolate avocado brownie batter. Smooth batter to a level amount and then bake on 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. While the low carb chocolate fudge avocado brownies are baking, make the peanut butter protein icing. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well with a spoon. If desired, blend in a blender. Remove brownies from oven after 18 minutes and let cool for at least 10 minutes...
Healthy Quinoa Sushi Rolls

Healthy Quinoa Sushi Rolls

Sushi is extremely delicious, but it can also be very unhealthy if you are not careful with your choices. The healthiest option when eating at a sushi restaurant is ordering the Sashimi.  Sashimi is simply raw fish that is sliced n thin strips and meant to eat with soy sauce and wasabi paste. This option is entirely protein packed and contains zero carbs, therefore is the absolute lowest on the glycemic index….with a GI of zero. You can also order the raw fish over a bed of rice, and this is called Nigiri. Nigiri is medium to high in  regards to its glycemic index. If I order the Nigiri, I would only eat half the rice in order to lower the carb/glycemic index of the meal. The last option is a sushi roll or sushi hand roll. This is also about medium to high on the glycemic index due to the high content of rice within each roll. Each roll contains about 2 cups of white sticky rice…and most people order at least 2-3 rolls. That is a whole heck of a lot of white rice!!! I love sushi, and typically order a few pieces of Sushimi as well as a roll or 2. I am aware that the rolls are higher on the glycemic index, so I use this as my “cheat meal” for the week. I was trying to think of a way to enjoy my sushi rolls with less carbs and fat…so I decided to head to the Japanese grocery store and see what I could come up with. I thought to myself, why not substitute...
