This "Sassy Water" was originally found in a book called The Flat Belly Diet - I found it on Pinterest!

The lemon boosts your metabolism, stabilizes your blood sugar levels, and acts as a natural dietetic.

The ginger is for bloating and water retention, and it boosts your metabolism. Ginger is also  great for any kind of stomach or digestive issues.

Cucumbers are natural diuretics, help to curb sugar cravings and flush out toxins.

Mint helps to suppress your appetite, helps to detoxify and helps to get rid of flatulence. It also makes you sweat because it is a natural diaphoretic.

However, even if all that was not true, this is an excellent way to jazz up your water. When you get tired of drinking plain water, it helps you to drink more - because the flavor is amazing!

Other ideas to add: strawberries, berries, pineapple, tangerine, lemon balm, bee balm, lavender.

NOTE: Use fresh ginger.... keep it in the freezer to make it easy to grate and easy to clean up. It will keep longer that way.

Flat Belly Diet! CookbookFlat Belly Diet! Cookbook

Prevention's Flat Belly Diet, a revolutionary plan that's already helped more than one million people lose weight around their middles, may help target dangerous belly fat with monounsaturated fats (better known as MUFAs)—found in delicious foods like nuts and seeds, vegetable oils, olives, avocados, and dark chocolate.

"The food...tastes so good, and there's so much of it!"

On the Flat Belly Diet, it's important to enjoy these foods, in the right amounts, with every meal. The Flat Belly Diet! Cookbook makes that easy. 


All of the recipes were carefully developed to make sure every meal includes just the right amount of MUFAs and meets the plan's 400-calorie guideline, so readers can mix and match meals to suit their taste. And there's no need to count calories. All the work has already been done!

Egg Muffins
I came across this recipe on Pinterest, and I am in love!

I found several versions - kalynskitchen.com, snackinginthekitchen.com, and cheeseslave.com.


So, as usual, I had to play with the recipe - of course I made some changes. I tried it first in regular muffin pans with muffin papers - don't do it!

Weigh In Day - One Month - 9.6 pounds lostTwo months into my low carb/high fat diet.

My weight loss for this month is another 6 lbs (2.72 kg)!

Which means I have lost a total of 23.2 lbs (10.52 kg) since New Year's Day.

The first month was kind of hard, but I am getting into the groove now, and with all the great recipes I have been finding, I am really enjoying my meals.

My husband is getting a bit jealous, because I give him a taste of what I make for myself, and he wants more! Now if I could just find the time to write down all my recipes for you!

How are you doing - how much weight have you lost so far?


An Update:
I started a low calorie/low fat diet (1,400-1,600 calories/day) right after New Year's, and in three month's time, I lost 8 pounds (3.63 kg). An average of 2.67 pounds (1.21 kg)/month.

On March 22nd, I started the Low Carb / High Fat diet (1,800-2,000 calories/day, 20-30g carbs). In just one month's time, I lost an additional 9.6 pounds (4.35 kg)!

Low Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes - 2 carbsYesterday was my birthday, and so I was looking around online for a low carb birthday cake.

While I did find a few, they all used artificial sweeteners and since I am still experiencing a headache from the Yogurt Bites I made the other day with yogurt sweetened with Splenda - I thought I would pass.

But I did come across a recipe for Low Carb Pancakes, so I thought I would make a treat for my lunch!

Mine didn't come out as pretty as her's, but they still tasted good!

Pancakes ingredients
1/4 cup (56ml) cream cheese
2 large eggs
1 tsp (2ml) date palm sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp (1ml) cinnamon (optional)
1 tbsp (15ml) butter

Preparation:
Pour 1/4 of the batter into a hot panBlend all ingredients in a blender, until smooth. Heat butter at medium in frying pan. Pour 1/4 of the batter into a hot pan. Cook for two minutes until golden, flip and cook one more minute on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

You can serve this with sugar free syrup (or any syrup of your choice) and fresh berries. If you do, you don't need to add the palm sugar, it is sweet enough with the syrup.

I didn't have any, and I am not going to try artificial sweeteners again, so I always add the palm sugar and cinnamon. I have tried both a dollop of butter on top of my panckaes - or - I add a teaspoon of Cinnamon Spread (2.4g carbs) to my plate and eat a bit of it with each bite of pancakes.

Low Carb Crackers
I was looking for something to make with chicken soup and the low carb cracker recipe I found on DiabetesForum.com used Almonds, which I cannot due to an allergy.

So I played with it a bit and made some no-carb crackers - and they taste great! The only thing is, I did not measure the cheese I grated - I did 16 strokes on the grater and guessed that was 2 ounces? I will have to measure it next time. But no matter how much cheese, it was still no carb.

Servings - makes 5 crackers
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Net Carbs: 0g carbs per cracker
Potential Allergens: dairy
Free of Wheat, Gluten, Egg, Soy, Sugar, Nuts, meat.

Grate any cheese of your choice, sprinkle 5 piles on baking sheet.
Ingredients:
5 tbsp Mozzarella cheese, whole milk, whole fat
5 - 1/4 tsp Parmesan cheese, grated
Garlic Salt (optional)

Preparation:
I used a small plastic cutting board and covered it with parchment/baking paper - so the cheese didn't stick.  You could also use a plate.

Don't use waxed paper, it will stick and be a mess!

Grate any cheese of your choice, sprinkle 5 piles (about 1 tbsp each) on baking sheet.

Sprinkle 1/4 tsp of Parmesan cheese on on each pile.

Shake a tiny amount of garlic salt on each pile. (Or any herb/spice mix you would like)

Place cutting board or plate with the cheese piles in microwave, for 1 minute. Let cool.

Low Carb/Gluten-Free Bagels
I tried out a Low Carb Bagel recipe given to me by JWag on the DiabetesForum.com and I am so proud of how these turned out! And they do taste delicious with butter!

Flaxseed - Some call this seed one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. It may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes.

Chia Seeds are superior to other plant and marine sources of essential omega-3 oils. It is also high in antioxidants and fiber. It is high in protein and lipids, low in sodium, and has fewer net carbs than most other grains.

Low Carb/Gluten-Free Pizza ExperimentI tried to make Low Carb/Gluten-Free Pizza last night for dinner - it worked OK, but I think it still needs work.

I used the recipe from "Low Carb and Gluten Free Comfort Foods" with a few changes.

To make the crust, the recipe says to fry 1 cup of shredded cheese in 1 tsp of olive oil in a large frying pan.

I think frying the "crust" in oil is too greasy, no matter what oil you use. Next time, I am going to try in the oven and then in the microwave and see what works best.

To make the crust, the recipe says to fry 1 cup of shredded cheese in 1 tsp of olive oil in a large frying pan.In the past I have made some wonderful "Taco Shells" out of cheese in the microwave, but that might be too crispy for pizza crust? I will keep you updated on this experiment!

NOTE: I used too much meat this time - the recipe called for much more than I needed. This time I used 2 strips of bacon and an 11" (28 cm) pepperoni stick.

Next time I will use half that and it will be plenty.

Low Carb and Gluten Free Comfort FoodsLow Carb and Gluten Free Comfort Foods
-- Numerous studies show that people can lose significant weight when eating low carb, even when they do not cut back on the number of calories!

Of course, as always people will debate this as they will debate anything that has to do with the human diet; but, the fact remains that it appears that you can eat more calories on a low carb diet and lose the same amount of weight.

So, if your aim is to simply lose weight without starving yourself, a low carb diet may be a good choice for you.

Like eating low carb, one of the major benefits of a gluten free diet is that it has been shown to help people lose weight; but, that is overshadowed by the massive benefits that can be had by removing the gluten. Gluten is a protein that is toxic to many of us and because it is toxic to our systems it can have many different harmful effects.

Freybe Pepperoni SticksSome days you just need a quick snack and even a few minutes preparing is a few minutes too long!

So it's good to have some quick low carb snacks on hand.

I was looking around our local supermarket, when I found these pepperoni sticks - one stick is only 2g carbs each, gluten-free and lactose-free!



Each stick is about 11.5 inches (4.5 cm) long, so I cut them in half, and now each 5.25 inch (2.0 cm)  stick is only 1g carb per stick!

However, these pepperoni sticks do include sugar, so you will need to test with your blood glucose meter to see how your body tolerates them. I found that eating one stick did not affect my blood sugar level at all.

If you are looking for this particular brand, I found them in The Real Canadian Superstore, here in Southern Ontario, Canada, near the deli section.

Ingredients:
Pork, water, glucose, salt, mustard seed, spices, sugar, sodium, erythorbate, dextrose, lactic acid starter culture, sodium nitrate, smoke.

Coconut Oil Chocolate FudgeIf you go on the Low Carb diet, you will have to give up chocolate, right?

What if I told you that not only could you still eat chocolate, but it is even really good for you??

[ Skip to recipe ]

The three main ingredients of this recipe are:

Dark Chocolate contains antioxidants (nearly 8 times the number found in strawberries), helps to lower your blood pressure and balance certain hormones in your body, has also been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) by up to 10 percent, and has been shown to decrease the formation of blood clots by reducing platelet activation.

Date Palm Sugar has great benefits for weight control and improving glucose and lipid levels for those with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). It demands less insulin in order for your body to maintain homeostasis. It is a healthy alternative sweetener that has a lower glycemic index (GI35). It is especially high in minerals including potassium, magnesium and zinc, as well as vitamins B2, B3 and B6.

Coconut Oil - the high fat content of coconut oil can paradoxically help you lose weight. It boosts your metabolism, gives you energy, makes you feel more full and improves your thyroid function. The type of fatty acid in coconut oil is a healthy one, and your body will quickly burn it for energy.

It is suggested you eat as much as 3 tablespoons of pure coconut oil a day - what better way then by eating chocolate fudge?? Go ahead - it's good for you!


Reasons Eating Is Better Than Dieting - Do you get a lot of trouble about eating junk food? Check out these 6 reasons why eating is better than starving yourself!

It made such beautiful chocolate fudge pieces, but I managed to spill it on the counter, on the floor and even in the freezer!

So the simplest method is to just mix it in a plastic square container and cut it after it freezes solid.The chucks aren't as pretty or uniform, but it's less messy!
