I follow @mindovermunch on Instagram. She’s cool. (www.mindovermunch.com)
She’s also got really awesome low carb high protein recipes that are easy to follow and really quick to make!
Her concept is true though, you can have healthy substitutions of most of the butter laden, flour heavy, sugar driven snacks things that we all love to binge on.
I have a two really amazing friends of mine (they are a couple!) One loves to bake new treats, and is always wanting the “healthier” alternate to a cookie. Although he did make a recipe that he got from his boyfriends mom…(sugar, love, happiness) and let’s just say I sat with the jar in my lap and couldn’t stop eating it. Shocking. (Thanks Queen B) 😉
Anyway! These are obviously much MUCH more healthier. Although it might not be to everyone’s taste, it’s cool to have in the morning if you on the run, just grab two or three and you are set.
