Is there any better way to disguise a vegetable than in brownie form? I don’t think so! I have to give credit to Chocolate Covered Katie for this inspiration. She used a higher glycemic flour base and made hers more of a cake, so check out her recipe too. I took some liberties and changed up her recipe a bit to fit what I had at home and to make it a little lower glycemic. Mine turned out moist and not a hint of veggie taste when they boast two full cups of diced cauliflower.
Yep…I confess…. I LOVE LOVE LOVE chocolate! I don’t care if its a piece of chocolate, chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake, chocolate muffins, I don’t discriminate. BUT, I do however want it to 1) taste great 2) be good quality 3) not send me on a total sugar high/low. These moist little devils are yummy and in line with my lower sugar, higher fat lifestyle. Hope you enjoy them too! If you make a batch post a pic on social media with the #FtheDiet so I can see them and hear yo
A moist and fudgy keto brownie is the byproduct of a pregnant lady (me) wanting something chocolaty and caky one night and not wanting to actually jack up my insulin levels while pregnant. I started out looking up recipes on “the Google” (as my daughter says) but in my mommy-brain haze I started mixing ingredients from two different recipes and then one of them gave the ingredients in grams and I didn’t want to spend 15 minutes trying to convert the measurements… so I tossed
Saturday mornings at our house, I like to try making a new breakfast. Something a bit more fun then our weekday eggs done fifty ways. I haven’t had a slice of real coffee cake in…I can’t remember how long but for some reason it popped into my head. The last thing I want to do in the mornings is send myself (or my family) on a major sugar rush, so I wanted to come up with a much lower carb, higher fiber version that can still pass my five year olds sniff and taste test. I took
My daughter asked if we could make cookies the other week and I wanted to make something up involving “better for us” ingredients we already had at home. Not too shabby flying by the seat of our pants on this one. I hope you and your family enjoy this gluten-free, fiber and omega packed treat.

Social gatherings like BBQ’s and picnics can be a source of anxiety, stress and worry for most dieters; with sauces, buns, potato and pasta salads, alcohol and decadent desserts. But for people following my “F…The Diet” program they have this under control and in a very tasty, satisfying manner. Here is an example menu for Fourth of July. Just need some planning and ingredient modifications and you can still host or participate in the delicious fun while still losing those fa
I love chocolate! I love peanut butter! And who doesn’t love the two mixed together?! But I am unwilling to eat a store bought Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. First off, they just taste artificial to me and coat my tongue. They are made with hydrogenated oils, which are also known as trans fats. This is the industrial process of adding hydrogen to liquid vegetable oil to make them more solid. There is no safe or healthy level of trans fat to ingest. Trans fats cause inflammation a
I love chocolate, that is NO secret! That is why I had to come up with a way to enjoy it at breakfast once in a while without the guilt.
