Homemade Coconut Thai Soup (Simple, Quick and Delish!)

Posted by Wendy Lucas on November 19, 2015 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)
Coconut Thai Soup

Sorry I do not have the measurements. When I make this soup I just add all the ingredients to the pot by eye balling and tasting as I go. It works every time! =)



Ingredients:
organic chicken thighs (you could use tofu, tempeh, beef, or shrimp too)
brown rice
canned coconut milk
beef broth or chicken broth (I just use the broth from cooking the chicken)
sea salt
fresh garlic cloves
sriracha hot sauce
honey or maple syrup (optional)
1-2 limes
assortment of whatever vegetables you like/have at the time
I like to use:
frozen veggie medley (corn, julienne carrots, green peas, green beans mix)
slices mushrooms
tomatoes 

Instructions:

1.) In Advance: Place organic chicken thighs in Crock Pot with water and sea salt, low for 6-8 hours or high for about 3-4 hours (until cooked through). Alternatively you could use any protein you already have cooked, and just purchase a chicken or beef broth instead. Also - Cook your brown rice in advance before you're ready to make the soup.
2.) Place a pan on stove. turn on medium heat. add 1 full can of coconut milk, and a few cups of the broth to the plan, add sea salt, lime, tiny bit of honey or maple syrup (optional), and sriracha hot sauce to taste. Stir Well!
3.) add slices of fresh garlic, chopped mushrooms, and all other veggies.
4.) cook on medium to high heat until garlic and mushrooms are softened.
5.) once veggies are softened, add in your cooked protein and brown rice that you already have prepared. Place into a bowl and enjoy! =)

Quest Protein Bar Review - Cookies and Cream

Posted by Wendy Lucas on July 17, 2014 at 3:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Quest Protein Bars Review

Flavor: Cookies & Cream

REAL COOKIE CRUMBLES AND DELICIOUS CREAM


All I can say is BOMBBBBBB!!!!

Here's the thing with Quest Protein Bars... I try to not have them very often since they are still "processed foods" and not "whole foods".

BUT, they are just THAT delicious, that I had to give in and try the Cookies & Cream flavor... I loved them so much after buying one bar at GNC, that I immediately went online and bought some. PLUS, look at that packaging! How could you pass that up?

Texture

The texture is slightly chewy and soft with crunchy bits of cookies & cream (LOVE CHUNKS!). Seriously amazing chunkiness.

Ingredients:

Protein Blend (Whey Protein Isolate, Milk Protein Isolate), Isomalto-Oligosaccharides* (Prebiotic Fiber), Water, Almonds, Cocoa Butter, Erythritol. Contains less than 2% of the following: Cocoa Powder, Natural Flavors, Coconut Oil, Sea Salt, Sunflower Lecithin, Dextrin, Baking Soda, Steviol Glycosides (Stevia), Sucralose.

Nutrition Facts:

21g protein & only 3g net carbs

The only true low carb bar on the market (as stated on the Quest Bar Website)

180 Calories
7g Fat
22g Carbs (3g net carbs)
Fiber 17g!!!
Sugar 1g :D
Protein 21g

Pretty good macronutrients!

One thing to note is these are high in protein, and some people (like myself) need to be wary of high protein diets, as it can be taxing on the kidneys (I have polycystic kidney disease in my family).

Eating a Quest Bar is much better than eating a candy bar!

Order your box today and have a clean cheat =)

Ginger Molasses Cookies (GF, Vegan)

Posted by Wendy Lucas on April 11, 2014 at 2:35 AM Comments comments (0)

GINGER MOLASSES COOKIES

GLUTEN FREE - VEGAN - LOADED WITH MINERALS! 



Made with protein-rich almond flour and blackstrap molasses, these cookies are surprisingly loaded with iron, calcium, copper, magnesium, and potassium. Naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup, they are also free of the most common allergens --> eggs, dairy, peanuts and gluten.

Blackstrap molasses is a sweetener that is low on the glycemic index, making it safe for diabetics.  It's high mineral content is thought to help improve menstural cramping.  Read more about the benefits of blackstrap molasses here.


Ginger Molasses Cookies

makes 12 cookies

Inspired by this recipe

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups almond flour (almond meal)

2 Tablespoons coconut oil, softened

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1 Tablespoon blackstrap molasses

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

 

Directions:


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl, and mix until a thick batter is formed.
  2. Chill the batter for 30 minutes in the fridge, to make sure it’s nice and firm before scooping.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350F and drop the batter by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet lined with a Silpat, or parchment paper.
  4. Use a wet fork to flatten each dough mound, into your desired cookie thickness. If you’d like a sugar topping, try sprinkling a bit of low-glycemic coconut crystals over the tops before baking.

  

Bake for 8-10 minutes, until firm around the edges, but still soft in the center.

Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Serve with a cold glass of homemade almond milk, and enjoy!
