Over the last 6 months I have changed the way I eat completely. Which has resulted in me losing 18 pounds. "I am down one more pound since my last update."
I have always been a healthy eater but I consumed way more sugar and foods that are full of chemicals than my body could handle. This Lifestyle change started as a support system for my husband who was doing a low carb diet that was suggested to him by his doctor. This particular diet was what he wanted Kevin to to help monitor his cholesterol. My goal in life now is to never be on any medicine, so I want to eat the best way I can and maintain a healthy body weight. Deciding on the weight you would like to be is a personal choice. When choosing what weight you would like to achieve, talk with your Doctor. Also, If you are loosing more than 20 pounds please do not try to loose it in 2 weeks or even two months. Starving yourself is just not at all healthy and the weight will come right back when you inevitably have to start eating again.
I am talking about a change in how you think about food, detoxing off of sugar and chemicals and making your body function the way it should.When you go this route please don't do any fat free or sugar free foods. Foods like this are all modified and full of terrible chemicals that your body can not process. I also want to highly suggest if you are drinking any diet drinks or anything with aspartame in it please stop. It is just pure poison.
Your body cannot process the chemical and it stays in your
nervous system messing up everything.
But that is a whole other story.
Let's talk about this crunchy, yummy snack that is low carb and delicious.
I crave crunchy salty things sometimes and Chips are out of the question for me, so I have a great alternative and it is these Parmesan cheese crisps.
These crisps are super easy and can be made in big batches and eaten later.
I have to stress that using the best ingredients is the key,
the better the ingredients the better your food will taste.
It might be a $1.00 or two more but you are worth it.
I never understood while people pay top dollar for makeup but eat the cheapest food to save money. This is the beginning of you looking and feeling better spend the extra money on your health.
A block of Parmesan cheese, Organic if available.
You can also get the pre-grated kind of cheese
but choose Sargento or something organic or all natural.
*Grater : medium or fine.
Non stick baking sheet
Spices of your choice
I used Cayenne
Grate your cheese
Place cheese on a non stick baking pan in small round shapes, about one inch around.
Sprinkle with your favorite seasoning.
Just a touch of seasoning is all you need.
Bake at 350 for 5 minutes at or until crispy brown.
Place on some aluminum foil to cool
Enjoy with an apple of by themselves.
They are also great with soups, tuna.
and on top of salads instead of croutons.
I will be sharing more of my lifestyle change recipes this Holiday season.
