1 Minute Microwave Bread Recipe: gluten free, zero net carbs!..an Atkins or low carb lovers dream

If you’re living the low carb life, then you know bread isn’t something you eat a lot of, if at all. I’ve got an easy bread fix that can kill a bread craving, and it takes less than a minute. Meet 1 minute microwave bread! It’s so easy to create, and you only need three (3) ingredients:

For 1 Serving You Need:

3 Ingredients for 1 Minute Microwave Bread ( Zero Net-Carbs, Gluten Free)

3 Ingredients for 1 Minute Microwave Bread ( Zero Net-Carbs, Gluten Free)

  • 1/2 whole egg (applesauce as substitute for Vegans???)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 teaspoon “Rumford” baking powder (or another brand that is also gluten free)

 

Here’s What To Do:

1) Crack 1 whole egg into a small bowl. (Why? It’s easier to make 2 servings now than save 1/2 egg for another serving tomorrow.)

2) Add 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed.

3) Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to the bowl. (Why? You’re making 2 servings.)

4) Mix all ingredients together. I find it’s easiest to use a fork.

5) Place in the microwave for about 1 minute (depending on your microwave).

GymKitchen: Black Bean Brownies Recipe

I know what you’re thinking. Black beans in brownies? Yes. It works! Below is a really simple recipe to make them. The trick is to cook up your own batch of black beans from dry. It’s only 11 net carbs a serving. If you use canned beans, the brownie won’t be as dense, plus it will have more preservatives.

Here’s a List of Ingredients:Black Bean Brownies nutrition fact sheet by Oh Fitness LLC

1 cup black beans (cooked from dry)
1 cup plain rolled oats (dry)
1 cup low carb protein powder ( I like Pure Protein )
1 cup egg whites
1/2 cup soymilk
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
1/4 cup toffee Stevia or your favorite artificial sweetener ( I still like the taste of Splenda the best)

NEXT: Blend all ingredients until smooth, & bake at 320F for 30-35 minutes.

Directions: Blend all ingredients until smooth. I used my Vitamix to do this. Next, pour into a 8x8x1 7/8 inch square cake pan & bake at 320F for 30-35 minutes. Then let cool. The brownies are a bit puffed up as soon as they come out of the oven, but they will flatten out, get more dense & darken up after cooling. Lastly, cut 16 squares as shown…couldn’t help myself…I ate & shared some before I took the last pic LOL SMH!!! Happy #gymkitchen eating : )

Holiday Fat Loss Plan

It’s holiday fat gain season, a time when nearly everyone packs on a few pounds. Rather than joining the masses and loosening your belt another notch, use any/all of these 5 Holiday Fat Loss Plans and avoid putting on a single pound. These plans could even result in a few pounds lost before New Year’s…

Holiday Fat Loss Plan #1: Eat a sensible meal before the party.
You should always arrive at parties with a full stomach. I realize that this goes against the popular trend of starving yourself before a party, and that’s exactly why most people gain weight.

Since your stomach will be full, you’ll have the clarity to pick and choose the treats that you really want, rather than stuffing yourself with everything in sight.

Holiday Fat Loss Plan #2: Setup a fiber defense.
A good defense strategy is key — take a fiber pill (sold online or at all major drug stores) before heading into the party to help block a fatty treat that may enter your mouth later. The fiber will give it a difficult time trying to find its way to your hips.

The key to the best working fiber supplement is “psyllium fiber”. That’s why Metamucil is the #1 recommended fiber brand by doctors, including the famous Dr. Oz. Metamucil uses psyllium fiber.

Holiday Fat Loss Plan #3: Avoid drinking calories.
Alcoholic beverages, egg nog and other sweet holiday drinks are simply packed with calories. These calories don’t take up much room in your stomach so you’re left wide open for even more calories.

Your best strategy is to avoid these beverages altogether, and stick with water. If you can’t resist, at least determine your drink maximum before you step into the party scene, and stick with it! BUT, do not take the Metamucil pill IF YOU DO DRINK ALCOHOL, because it will give you the worst hangover ever!!! Remember, the fiber pill is designed to block digestion, so that means the alcohol will sit in your system longer, and work on you like you’ve knever known!!! Do not try this at home!

Holiday Fat Loss Plan #4: Fill your plate, but only once.
I’m certainly not going to tell you that you shouldn’t eat anything at the party. By all means, go and fill up your plate. But only once. AND, don’t pile your plate super high.

That’s right, you heard me. Don’t pile it on, and no going back for seconds. Since you’ve already eaten a sensible meal before arriving, this rule is going to be easier to keep than you think.

Holiday Fat Loss Plan #5: Taste dessert, just a taste.
The holidays are all about sweet treats, so go ahead and partake. But just a taste. Look at desserts as something to savor, not something to fill up on.

And since you ate a sensible meal before you came, then you filled up your dinner plate once you’re probably going to be pretty full at this point anyway.

That’s it—all you need to know to not gain a single pound at holiday parties.

But what about the rest of the year?

Wouldn’t you love to make 2015 the year that you transform your body?

Wouldn’t it feel great to throw out all of your fat clothes? To look forward to bathing suit season? To be given a clean bill of health from your doctor? And to be showered with compliments by family, friends and that special someone?

It’s all more possible than you think.

But you’ll need to take massive action.

My programs are designed to efficiently get you into the best shape of your life.

Go on and secure your spot before the New Year’s rush.
