Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Pie- S- I would make this without the crust to keep it THM friendly ;)

 

Tip Tuesday- Food Swaps- Cheetos, Reeses PB eggs, Snickers and Butterfinger shakes, tortilla chips

Many of my friends and aquaintances who have not embraced the THM lifestyle have told me that they don’t like not eating whatever they want to eat. First of all, I CAN eat anything I want to eat I just CHOOSE not to eat certain foods that I know will not give me energy or increase my health. But one of the greatest advantages to doing THM is that for most foods you love to eat, there is a good substitute for it.

Here are just a few. Does this look like deprivation to you? I don’t think so;)

Instead of reaching for a snickers bar or butterfinger, have a snickers shake or butterfinger shake- they provide plenty of protein to give you energy and keep you trim;)

Snickers Protein Shake

Does this look heavenly or what?

Easter is coming up, and I’m sure you’re thinking you can’t have those Reeses PB eggs we all love, ok well I love them, but guess again….You can!

Are you craving chips and salsa, instead of the regular old tortilla chips that have oil and corn and leave you feeling less than satisfied, why not try these lime tortilla chips that are light, but still give you the crunch you crave? Want to dip them in salsa or guac? Go for it;) How about dipping them in some homemade queso, be my guest;) Still on plan! Try out the transformer cheese sauce.
