Fat-Burning Chocolate Pudding

Healthy Fat-Burning Chocolate Pudding:

(This recipe will make about 2-4 servings and is a great healthy dessert or late night snack)

  • 1/2 of a ripe avocado (soft to touch)
  • approx 3 tablespoons of almond butter (preferably raw if possible)
  • approx 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk (preferably organic)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of organic cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 packet of stevia (or enough to your desired sweetness level)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 of a scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • just a small pinch of sea salt

Put the avocado and almond butter into a bowl and mash together with a fork until smooth.  Then add all of the other ingredients into the bowl and mix together vigorously until all is mixed and smooth.  If you’re good with a food processor, you can use that too.

If everything went right, the consistency will be similar to pudding… except normal pudding makes you FAT with loads of sugar!  This healthy pudding recipe will actually HELP you to burn fat, control cravings, and satisfy your body’s need for micro-nutrients, protein, healthy fats, and fiber.

If the pudding ends up too thick, simply add a bit more almond milk or coconut milk for more moisture until the consistency seems right.

If you want to get a little wild and add some more nutrient-rich additions, feel free to add some chopped pecans, chia seeds, rice bran, or walnuts at the end.  And it tastes great to top this dish with some sliced strawberries!

Healthy Turkey-Bean Recipe

Healthy Turkey-Bean Concoction Recipe (makes about 4-5 servings)

  • 2 large cans of chunked or shredded turkey breast (or use about 1-lb of fresh shredded turkey breast, which is slightly healthier)
  • One 16-20 oz. can of baked beans (yes, this has sugar, but is also balanced by high fiber and protein in this recipe)
  • 1 large tomato diced (or 1 can crushed tomatoes)
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • A couple cloves fresh diced garlic (or a tablespoon or so of crushed garlic from the jar)
  • 1 large vidalia onion diced
  • 2 red peppers diced

In a large pot, mix the olive oil, diced tomatoes, onions, peppers, and garlic together until it starts simmering and allow it to cook for a few minutes. Then add in the shredded turkey and can of baked beans and simmer for a few more minutes. That’s it… Simple, Plus, it has a great mix of healthy carbs, protein, and fat, as well as a good dose of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Mexican Lunch Recipe

Healthy Mexican Fat Loss Recipe

The quantity used here will make about 5-6 servings…

  • 1-lb of cooked diced chicken breast (can also use shrimp in this recipe for variety)
  • 2 medium vidalia onions diced
  • 1 large bunch of cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 small jar (10 or 12 oz) of salsa
  • about 3 ripe avocados
  • 1-2 large limes
  • about 10-12 round flat tostada shells (avoid any that are fried in soybean oil or hydrogenated oils of any kind… I found a brand of tostada shells at a health food store that are fried in much healthier coconut oil). If you can’t find those, use soft organic corn tortillas instead or something that’s not fried in oil.  Another option if you want to avoid the corn tostada shells is to use lettuce wraps for this instead, which would be the lowest carb and healthiest choice.

Mix the diced chicken, diced onion, chopped cilantro, and jar of bean and corn salsa all together in a large bowl. Spoon out some of the mixture from the bowl onto each of the tostadas, and then top with some diced avocado (I use about 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado for each tostada). Then slice off a couple of fresh lime wedges and squeeze the fresh lime juice on top of each tostada.

Enjoy! The combination of lime, cilantro, vidalia onion, and avocado produces an explosion of flavors that I think you’ll love.

It’s a very refreshing, delicious, and healthy meal.
