Dairy Free Chocolate Ice-Cream
Recipes» Dairy Free Chocolate Ice-Cream We all want to be a little healthier. Let's be honest, you can't live on Slutty Brownies (and the world is a sadder place for it). However, the idea of snuggling down infront of a movie with a big bowl of celery sticks is deeply depressing. So, I give you, guilt free, fat free, dairy free ice cream! I like it soft, like Mr Whippy so I can eat it with a spoon, but you could easily freeze it a little longer and serve as scoops in crunchy waffle cones. You can make any flavour you like, I particularly like chocolate-maple, but I hear chocolate-peanut butter is fantastic! The magic ingredient is...... Pile them onto a plate and pop them in the freezer. Leave them for about 5hours, or over night if possible. Turn it on, baby! Keep blending until you have a smooth mush, like the one bellow. Now add 2-3 heaped teaspoons of cocoa powder and a swirl of maple syrup (Or whatever flavourings you fancy, be inventive!) There you have it!

no-bake energy bites I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days. Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer my idea of a more comforting alternative. Pasta. When life is good, and when life gets crazy, I turn to pasta. And just as it has for years, this one hit the spot.

Homemade Klondike-y Bars | Mind Over Batter So… Has it been hot enough out there for you? Did you feel Mother Nature’s dragon breath singeing your leg stubble? You had leg stubble, don’t lie to me. You were totally in a hurry during the heat wave one morning and forgot to shave your legs. Why else were you sporting a maxi dress in that oppressive heat? So you were hot and you were grumpy – Like a bear that got one of its paws caught in one of those inhuman snappy metal trap things. Like that. Grr… I feel you… It happened to me… I can relate. But wait – I can help! For three days straight I couldn’t stop singing the Klondike bar jingle. Now if something were to attach itself to my brain with such fervor, wouldn’t it be worth exploring a little? So I made you Klondike bars…To cool you off…To do a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ nice for you. And to stop the song from playing in my head over and over again. Oh, mama… Look at this.. No need to thank me. Love, Me

Mango Ice cream Friday, May 21, 2010 I recently bought an ice cream maker. To prove to myself that it was a good investment, I've been trying to use it as much as possible.

I’m not going to give you some faddy diet that will help you lose a stone, only to find it again next month. Why? Because it’s a waste of both of our time & it’s bad for you. Instead, I will give you my tips, rules & advice to living your life, & losing weight along the way. 1. I’m going to go out on a limb here & say that as you’re reading my blog, you like the internet. That’s your goal. 2. 3. 4. You should start eating at around a 3 or a 4. If you wait until 2 or 1, your body will go into starvation mode which means when you do finally eat, your body will hold on to every bit of fat it can get it’s hands on incase you decide to starve it again. If you accidentally get to this level of hunger, take it slow. If you’re actively trying to lose weight, stop at 5. You’ll soon train your body to eat what’s just right for you. 5. Sweets/Candy Your body’s lacking Chromium, carbon phosphorus, sulphur, Tryptophan. Bread You need nitrogen.
