Low Carb Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

It has been quite some time since I have experimented in the kitchen. So much has been going on in my life I felt like the last thing I had time for was to try out new recipes. For those who don’t know, I began competing in NPC Bikini competitions, I prepped for ~6 weeks for my first one July 19th, placed 4th out of 25 girls in my class. It was so much fun and such a rush I knew I had to do it again. I took two weeks to improve my package and competed in Rochester, NY where I earned my the Overall Bikini Champion title and qualified for NPC Nationals in November. That’s where I am headed. Man, I need to write a post all about this experience so far.

BUT UNTIL THEN… I will be trying to use my creative brain to come up with tasty recipes which are also healthy and easy to fit into your daily macronutrients without sacrificing much! Here goes with the first one… ENJOY!

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

Fudge Brownies

What is it about a brownie that just makes your entire day complete? It doesn't even matter the kind of morning (yeah, brownies are acceptable in the morning), afternoon, or night you are having when someone offers you a brownie it just gets better. It then gets 10x better than how ever much better it was going to be- ok say that 5 times fast- when you realize it's the healthiest brownie you've ever had. I'm calling these Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies because I put peanut butter chips on … [Read More...]
