For years I have wanted to “eat healthy” and exercise to lose a little bit of weight. But as soon as I would see a donut or candy my brain screamed “eat me “ and I would cave in and consume empty calories.
After several attempts of eating better and saying no to certain foods, my body craved the sugar and fat and I would eat the whole house out of sweets. I would constantly get mad at myself for eating these foods that I know are not good for me but because they were there and accessible I ate them.
After I found this cookbook online I grew excited to see that it was for healthy snacks and food that still tasted good.
After I received it in the mail I went through it right away to pick out the recipes that I wanted to try first.
There were so many to choose from so I just chose a couple of recipes for food that I had around the house.
I made the Cinnamon, Vanilla, and Sugar Roasted Almonds which tasted so good! You wouldn’t even think it was that healthy, but it was great tasting and 183 calories per serving. My boyfriend is the pickiest eater and even he liked it.
Some of the recipes you might have to tweak but I loved every single recipe I tried to make.
People who are looking for a healthier choice in their meals for the day should go pick up a copy of Snack Girl to the Rescue. Lisa Cain motivates you and teaches you how to shop healthier. It’s not just a cookbook it’s a helpful guide to get you on the right track.
