Double Chocolate “Brownie” Biscotti [Recipe]
Here’s my copycat version of Jenn Segal’s tried, tested and perfected double chocolate biscotti! If you’re not sure whether you’re a biscotti fan or not, start with these bad boys! They remind me of the double chocolate espresso biscotti from Whole Foods that I developed a mild addiction to upon discovering them a year ago.
Low Carb Açaí Bowl [Recipe]
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone tell me that they don’t eat carbs but then I’ll see them happily munch their way through an açaí bowl. People who don’t track their food don’t know any better but if you do track your macros, you’ll know just how calorically dense these bowls can be! What you probably thought of as being super healthy and good for you, you’ve now discovered is often super high in sugar and can easily set you back 100 grams carbs or more!

Mocha Nice Cream [Recipe]
Calling all coffee lovers! We have a frozen mocha treat for you here that comes with a surprising twist. Cauliflower and ice cream!? You bet! It’s the surprise ingredient here. When used frozen it helps to add thickness and gets you closer to that 800 grams of fruits and veggies! If you love crunchy toppings like I do, try adding some cacao nibs as sprinkles. Chopped nuts, granola and coconut flakes would also be super tasty additions to compliment each mouthful of mocha deliciousness.

Maca-Roons | Guilt-Free Movie Snacks [Recipe]
Going to the cinema can be a great way to enjoy a night out, free from the distraction of kids, pets and our phones! But it can also open us up to some hard-wired habits and cravings. Movie snacks are typically delicious but also calorically dense. Popcorn, Kazoozles, ice cream, M&Ms – are anyone else’s taste buds salivating? When you’re sat there in the dark it’s easy to let the intoxicating effects of those sugary treats take control.
Death by Chocolate Protein Mug Cake [Recipe]
