How to Avoid 3 Harmful Foods that Add lbs to your Waistline

You know that healthy habits make sense, but did you ever stop to think why you practice them?

I’ve heard women, in particular, say this a lot lately. They say, “Why can’t I look like that ?!”, ” I will never look like that!”

Why do we mentally sabotage ourselves? Let’s get something clear. You are unique. You are not meant to be me & I am not meant to be you. We are on this planet as individuals, each of us has a unique finger print that can’t and wont ever be duplicated with any other human being. Ever! So why do you mentally sabotage your mindset with self doubt and in return it starts a domino affect on your health? You are telling your subconscious with out even realizing it that you are not made for greater things. You are telling your subconscious that you can not be sexy, be brilliant and be fantastic. Be happy in your skin.

Everywhere you look — on every billboard, on every social media channel — it seems that there are beautiful, scantily clad women. So it is pushed down our throats that beauty starts from the outside but actually its starts on the inside and radiates outward.

Here’s the thing: if you treat your body like it’s your worst enemy – or not take ownership of your physical wellbeing – you are repelling good health. You’re keeping yourself from being the best you can be in your life, because you dislike your body so much.

Here is my list of 3 harmful foods that add lbs to your Waistline that you need to avoid.

  1. Diet soda- diet soda is a chemical cocktail made up of artificial sweeteners like aspartame, saccharin, and sucralose. Artificial sweeteners trigger insulin, which sends your body into fat storage mode and leads to weight gain.
  2. Yogurt- Conventional yogurt usually comes from milk produced by cows that are confined and unable to graze in open pasture. They’re usually fed GMO grains, not grass. As the yogurt ferments, chemical defoamers are sometimes added. Then high doses of artificial sweeteners, sugar, or high fructose corn syrup are sometimes added too. That’s not all: colors, preservatives, and gut-harmful carrageenan can be dumped in.
  3. HFCS- read labels, stay away from any products that contain this, it is 20x sweeter than sugar an our bodies don’t recognize HFCS. What happens when our bodies doesn’t recognize something? It turns it into fat. It also confuses your body &* doesn’t let your brain know when your full!

Here is an easy recipe to make a Dairy Free Coconut Yogurt that is also located  in my book
This book will help you look and feel younger, slimmer and even more sexy
You will find in this book intensely flavorful recipes that are delicious, easy to make that are simply wonderful and will make your taste buds scream with delight.

Dairy-free Coconut Yogurt

2-14 oz. cans coconut milk

2 teaspoons agar agar flakes or 2 tablespoons tapioca starch

4 probiotic capsules

2 tablespoons raw coconut sugar or grade B maple syrup, (optional)

Warm you oven and make sure you jars are sterilized. Warm your oven for about 5 minutes until it reaches 100 F, then turn off the heat.

Shake the can of coconut milk 1st before pouring into a sauce pan. Next add your thickener. If you’re using agar agar, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the agar agar flakes into the pot over the coconut milk- but don’t stir. If you are using the tapioca starch, scoop out roughly 1/3 cup of the coconut milk and whisk the starch in the milk. Make sure it is completely dissolved then add it back to the sauce pan.

Continue to Heat the coconut milk over the heat until it begins to simmer. Whisk the milk and turn it down on low. Continue cooking on low, whisking occasionally for an additional 10 minutes. Until the agar agar is full dissolved or the tapioca starch has thickened the milk.

Cool your milk until it reaches the temperature of 100 F. Next twist open your probiotic capsules and pour it into your milk. Whisk to combine.  Add your agar or syrup if you desire and whisk that in.

Pour into jars, seal the lids on them and allow the yogurt to sit for 12-24 hours at 110 F in the oven or a dehydrator without disrupting. After it has completed its cycle, place in the fridge to chill for no less than 6 hours. The yogurt will become thicker as it sits and chills. If you find the mixture to have separated and is yellowish of color, don’t be alarmed, just give it a good stir to combine again. This coconut yogurt will last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

If the yogurt develops a pink or grey discoloration on its surface that means it has been contaminated with bad bacteria. Throw it away and do not eat it!

If you want a super thick Greek style yogurt. The night before place your canned coconut milk in the fridge. Don’t not shake. In the morning when you open it, scoop out the thick hardened top layer part of the cream. Discard the “liquidy” coconut water underneath it.
