Vegan Low-Carb Cookies

Here’s my recipe for incredibly delicious vegan low-carb COOKIES!

Ingredients:
2 cups Almond meal
1 scoop Hard Magnum Choco Love protein
1/2 tbsp Baking powder
1 tbsp Flaxseed meal
1 tbsp Chia seeds
1 tbsp Stevia
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
5 tbsp Unsweetened almond milk
3 tbsp Almond butter
Chopped vegan dark chocolate
Mixed nuts to top

Pre-heat oven to 375F, mix dry ingredients, then mix in wet ingredients til you have a cookie dough consistency (add almond milk if too try, add almond meal if too wet), prep baking sheet with coconut oil, roll dough into balls, flatten them with a spoon, top with a nut, bake for 8 min…and enjoy!  Simple as that.

Aren’t they beautiful?  Good luck resisting eating the whole batch at once!

Recipe: Chia Pudding

My naturopath recommended I start having Chia pudding for breakfast, consisting of chia seeds, almond milk and Greek yogurt. I made it that way the first time but didn’t enjoy it, because the Greek yogurt taste was too strong. Blegh. Over the week, I’ve adapted it into something sooooo delicious, and here is my recipe:

2 tbsp chia seed blend
2 tbsp almond milk
1/2 scoop choco protein powder
1 heaping spoonful of Greek yogurt
1 tbsp almond butter

Mix the above together, let it sit for 5+ min or overnight, top with All Bran Buds, and ENJOY!

Of course, you can tweak the recipe to how you’d like by changing the flavour of protein powder, adding in nuts/seeds/fruits, adding in oatmeal, etc.

BTW, got these awesome containers with the extra compartment for toppings or dips from Dollarama! I love them.

Fast & Simple Meal Prep

Approximate prep/cook times:

Oatmeal – 5 min

Yams – 2 min prep, 25 min steam

Chicken – 2 min prep, 20 min bake at 450

Zucchini – 2 min prep, 8 min bake at 350

Because everything is steamed or baked, rather than stir fried, I can go do other things while they cook.

Meal prepping is easier than you may think – plan it out, bake/steam most of your dishes, and keep to simple recipes.

Also, meal prepping will save you a ton of money. All of this cost only $18 and made 5 lunches!

Other healthy ideas:

Carbs – brown rice, baked potato, Mary’s crackers

Protein – ground turkey, white fish

Veggies – baked broccoli, steamed kale, spinach salad

1/2 lb of extra lean ground turkey/beef, or tofu for vegans
1/2 jar of pasta sauce
A few mushrooms

Bit of corn
Whatever else you’d like to add to your pasta sauce
