Seriously, you don't need to be diabetic to benefit from the habits I've mentioned here. Everyone can be healthier by doing this.
Here are some of the things I've been eating.
Voluminous oatmeal. This is a tip I learned from Chocolate-Covered Katie. Use 1 to 1 1/2 times the amount of water you normally would when cooking your oatmeal, then cook it and let it sit overnight. They become double the size of regular oats so it seems like you're eating a lot more oatmeal than you actually are. How great is that??
Coconut flour chocolate cake in a mug, for those late-night cravings. I like to top it with a small scoop of chocolate frozen yogurt. Yummy!
I also love these "All for One" Chocolate Chip Cookies. I usually just make mine as one jumbo cookie in the microwave, and I top it with a little vanilla frozen yogurt.
Coconut flour is so awesome, I'm addicted. I've been enjoying these coconut banana pancakes too topped with Greek yogurt.
Also, because you know how I love pancakes, I used Bob's Red Mill Low-Carb Baking Mix to make pancakes this morning. Recipe here.
I'm loving that mix so much and so do my kids. I made muffins with it the other day and Cole couldn't stop raving about them.
