Chocolate Quinoa Cookies

Chocolate Quinoa Cookies

img_0962

OMG These are amazing …….if you struggle to eat healthy and (like me) have a sweet tooth then this super healthy superfood recipe will appeal to you.
I had some quinoa in my cupboard , looking rather dull and uninspiring…..I couldnt muster up the desire to cook it ……UNTIL ……I thought let’s try something sweeter and see what happens…..hey presto chocolate quinoa cookies appeared ( like magic ! ).

So simple, i unexpectedly got an hour free today and these no bake delights took just 10 of those 60 mins ( excluding the cooking of quinoa …..which is essentially just leave to boil in a pan !). So here it is ………

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
between 1/3 and 1/2 cup organic cocoa powder ( I used green and blacks )
1/2 cup nut butter ( almond )
1 cup cooked quinoa
To sprinkle on too I used Himalayan salt and a shaving of 85% cacao chocolate and a sprinkle of grated pecan nut but you can choose what suits you.

DIRECTIONS
Melt the coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa powder in a pan over a low heat. Stir well until combined.
Then add the butter and stir Well.
Mix in the cooked quinoa.
Line 1 or 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. ( I used 2)
Spoon onto the paper and shape into cookie shapes.
Add toppings and then pop into freezer for as long as you can bear to wait.

 

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!
ps – I started with 12 of these, and I now only have 5 to photo ! …….thats just how yummy they are !
A lovely health snack or guilt free treat which is packed with protein, fibre, iron, magnesium and has ALL 9 of our much needed amino acids!!!!!

whats not to love about these little powerful delights ! Happy days !

WHAT IF ….anything were possible ? What would you choose ?

The universe is not trying to work against you, in fact its the opposite …we just spend so much time banging our heads up against a metaphorical brick wall that we don’t stop to listen.

We spend our time caught up with the CONCLUSION …trying to figure it all out with all the answers that we are not listening to whats being put out there and we block ourselves from creating (or some people call it manifesting).

Here are some questions that may help you come unstuck from that viewpoint you are stuck in right now ……..

Q) If we chose to choose that which was working for us…..would we choose to create more ?

Q) If you wanted to create your perfect reality….would it be where you are now ?

Q) How can it be better than this ?

Q) What if …….everything i had based my reality on was not solid (or fixed) ?

Q) What would you choose to create if you were not fixed into your preconceived idea of what your reality “should” be ?

Q) When things go wrong do you try to ESCAPE or CREATE ?

If you are looking for a way to ESCAPE then you are in fact not coming from a place where you allow yourself to CREATE !!!

If you are going through a cycle in your life which is holding you back and would like more information about how i can help you then please contact me for a no obligation and free consultation.

Investing in yourself is probably the best investment you will ever make. As you free your mind, body and energy, your life simply transforms (as many of you will already know!).

If you would like more information about how we can help you improve your health long term then please call us for a confidential chat and to book and appointment on 07531 191 688

Clean 9 System cleanse and weight loss

FINAL STATS of my Clean9 weight loss success journal.
Posted on 30 May 2013 08:16
Hi All,

So on Tuesday i decided to cleanse my system ready for my holiday and so i am using the forever living clean 9 cleansing system for this.
I love forever living products (and do recommend and sell them to my clients along with natures sunshine) and the gel is probably one of the best things i can recommend to anyone.

Anyway i thought i would blog my progress, as i believe only in offering my clients products like this which are tried and tested. Personally i am doing this for a system clean i dont really have much weight to loose (a couple of lbs before my holiday will be good though) What i’m finding this far is that i’m going to loose weight whether i want to or not.

I have some before and after pictures from successful clients on the weight loss page if you want to see the successes.
Also if you contact me directly i will be able to offer you a discount off the RRP of this programme plus i am offering a free lifestyle analysis and nutritional support .

Day 1. – lost 1.6lbs
I know that the first 2 days are the hardest as this is the beginning of the phase and the body is adjusting. I have a lot of aloe gel through the day and a balanced protein shake. I expect to feel hungry but i’m very surprised that i am not at all.
I did waver and had some extra (soy) milk in the morning as i find it hard to take tablets on an empty stomach.
I distracted myself from meal times by doing other things. I feel good and not tired.

Day 2 – lost 2.0lbs (3.6lbs total)
Again today i really started to think about how we eat because someone offers us food or because it is ‘time’ to eat and not really because we are hungry.
Again i had a little extra soy milk for the first thing in the morning tablets, not hungry at all but i do feel a little more tired today . Slept like a log!

Day 3- lost 1.5lbs (5.1lbs total)
This morning i felt very tired, but today i have extra protein shakes and i also get 600 calories of meal so i know that the worst is over. I can’t believe how i do not feel hungry at all. I expected to be highly anticipating my meal and i struggled to eat the full meal.

 

Day 4- lost .4lbs (5.5lbs total)
What i am realising is how different this is – i have done body cleanses before as i like the Ayurvedic principle of rebalancing the organs to get them to work smarter but i have never lost weight like this – just water weight. I am now my ‘happy / ideal’ weight so i am personally going to try to increase the calories as i have another 5 days and do not want to loose much more.
The garcinia is the one that is melting old fat,
Also i realised as i ate my main meal for my evening meal this is probably better (for me) to eat earlier as i had energy and then did nothing with it, as a result i did not sleep too well. For my lifestyle that may need to be eaten before 4:00pm so i can burn it off.
Day 5- – Lost 0.5lbs (6lbs total)
Ok so i wanted a lie in this morning but seem to have a lot of energy which is not at all what i expected as i am eating so much less.
I ate earlier yesterday to try to counterbalance the nighttime energy and this worked as i slept well (just woke early!!) I over exceeded the calorie amount (on purpose ) as i don’t really want to loose too much weight as this is a cleanse for me.
What i am really noticing (or maybe imagining…either way i like it :O) ) is that my body looks more defined which to me is not water weight . As i mentioned yesterday the garcinia uses old fat stores by inhibiting the enzyme which converts carb into fat . It also contains also chromium which is a mineral which if we are deficient in we tend to crave sugary foods .As chromium deficiency causes fatigue and excess fat production this is probably also why i have so much energy!!!

Day 6 – 8 – Lost 1.0lbs (7lbs total)

Catching up with you on my cleanse tracking as the weekend has been busy and i had a few system errors on the blog.
So i feel cleansed, really full of energy and it really hasn’t felt like i have had to give up on much …..i have to admit though it has been the weekend and i have had a glass or 2 of red wine and also i had a couple of coffees….yikes….so i still feel great but i guess it could have been even better!!! I still lost some weight although i have eaten more than 600calories and had a ittle detour 1.0 lbs over the weekend.
Final weigh in tomorrow and again i have been up without my alarm every day.
.

Day 9 – Lost 0.3lbs (7lbs 3 total)

So the end is finally here, i have been surprised at how easy it has been after the first couple of days it really is not at all difficult. I lost 3inches from my waits so i am very happy with that, i also lost 1 inch from my upper arm and thigh!! So naw i feel so much better and i really think this is going to be a summer and winter must for me…i cannot recommend this with nutritional guidance enough!!!

I have some before and after pictures from successful clients on the weight loss page if you want to see the successes. Also if you contact me directly i will be able to offer you a £20 discount off the RRP of this programme plus i am offering a free lifestyle analysis and nutritional support if you need it through the programme .

Common weight loss myths and truths

Myth – Eating fat makes you fat
TRUTH –  food which is high  in omega 3 fatty acids and saturated fats are linked to lower rates of obesity and better overall health. Good fats help to build healthy cell membranes to utilise good hormonal  signals which  manage metabolism.
Diets rich in good fats (saturated and omega 3), anti-oxidants, electrolytes and trace minerals de-inflame the body and allow for proper insulin/leptin signaling resulting in weight loss, stable energy and disease prevention.
Myth – Low fat cereal ‘diets’ are a good way to drop a dress size.
TRUTH –  Many breakfast cereal are  simple carbs which is sugar. Starting the day on protein such as eggs or COMPLEX  carbs such as whole GRAIN bread with beans or porridge will be more helpful than starting on sugar  (which in turn will lead to insulin resistance which is going to make long term weigh loss harder)
Myth – Im always on the go, at the gym, i hardly eat i should be burning all my fat off.
TRUTH – Stress triggers something called progesterone which triggers our craving sensors.  A stressful lifestyle (this includes stressing the mind, excessive exercise, too much caffeine or diet drinks and lack of sleep )   will  stimulate cortisol production and adrenal fatigue  which can impact on effective weight loss.
Myth – Low fat foods / ”fat free” foods prevent weigh gain.
TRUTH –  fat free mainly means it has a higher sugar contant (which just turns to fat anyway). In addition to this all of the false sugars (saccharin, sucralose,  Acesulfame Potassium, maltose, dextrose, aspartame….brand names like  sweet n low, splenda etc etc ) ….whatever you want to call this gunk is just a false product which our body doesnt recognise and therefore it messes up our hormonal system (see above insulin resistance, thyroid function etc ) . This in turn means our system doesn’t know what is ‘real sugar and ‘ fake sugar’ it just ends up encapsulating what it registers as ‘ foreign matter’ in a layer of fat ….AKA CELLULITE!!
Myth –  Excessive exercise is better
Most people believe that running long distances and lifting light weights for many repetitions is good and that running 10K’s and marathons are healthy.
TRUTH –  long distance cardiovascular exercise increases cortisol secretions which inflame the body and damage joints & ligaments leading to injury/over-training and possible weight gain. Also cortisol (released from the adrenals) is what we release when we are stressed so we are stressing the body out.
High intensity, short time period training boosts growth hormone that allows the body to build muscle, burn fat and build a greater anti-oxidant reserve. Train 4-5 days a week for 10-20 minutes each session at a very high intensity.
Myth – I feel good so I must be healthy
TRUTH –  is that every cell is hit by over 10,000 free radicals every second. We never feel this. The heart rebuilds all 60 billion cells every 7 months. We never feel this. Between 10,000 and 100,000 cancer cells are building in our body every day. We never feel this. Eat as much organic, free range, grass fed meat and  non farmed fish produce as you can afford.  Eat food in its natural state. The more ingredients on the label the less healthy it is.
Myth – It doesn’t matter what i do i cannot loose weight. My metabolism is slower than everyone else’s.
TRUTH – Simple equation is what i eat  plus (+) or minus ( -)  what i use in energy (or metabolise)   will equal  (= )
a) weight loss
or
b) weight gain
or
c) weight stabilising
Portion control and removing ‘fake food’ from your diet is the key to both long term health and weight management.  I mentioned earlier about the hormonal system being out of balance which is just a case of ‘rebooting’ and once that has happened the above comes back into play. Most of us have gone off  the path of listening and understanding our bodies which is why my programmes are so effective as whether you have lost sight of portion control or need a ‘reboot’ we get you back on the path to health and wellbeing.
