New Year, New You… or Me?

Ok… so it’s been a while. Gotta be honest, we’ve had a LOT going on in our home! I am still cooking, almost every night. I just can’t always find the time to write down every ingredient amount and the recipe while I cook, and then take pictures. Horrible, right?! I’m a food blogger! I LOVE to cook! Sometimes when I just feel down… I just want to cook. I go to my mom’s house, I want to cook… I go visit my sister, I want to cook… it’s bad! HA!

Any way… my family went to Disney for a week… with a meal plan… and then came Christmas and New Years. Let’s just say I gained a bit of weight. Yeah.

So… back to the normal… home cooked, healthy meals for me!

I’ve been up at my sister’s house and reading a lot of Dietitian Cassie and getting some GREAT ideas! I can’t cut out all carbs/bread… but I like how she talks about food!!!!

Here’s her pinterest boards: http://www.pinterest.com/dietitiancassie/

Here’s her website: http://www.dietitiancassie.com/

So, my sister and I did our blogilates: http://www.blogilates.com/

and then we decided we needed a night time snack…so we checked out Dietitian Cassie’s suggestions under pinterest and found something DELICIOUS!

I had to change a few things because she recommended Almond Butter and due to a food allergy in my home, we only had sunflower seed butter… but man… what an awesome nighttime snack!

Here ya go!

This is called Apple Nachos.

Now, I didn’t follow the original recipe completely… so this is my adapted version.

The original version is here: http://letthemeatclean.blogspot.com/2014/02/apple-nachos.html

Apple Nachos

2 large Fuji Apples
1/4 cup Sunflower Seed Butter
1/4 cup Milk Chocolate Chips (or semisweet)
2 pieces of caramel
3 TB Half&Half
1/4 cup Shredded raw coconut
Nuts of your choice (I did not put nuts on mine)
Slice apples and place on a plate or tray. Place sunflower seed butter, chocolate chips, caramel and half&half in a glass bowl in the microwave. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir. When smooth, remove from microwave and drizzle over sliced and plated apples. Then, sprinkle coconut
and nuts on top.

DELICIOUS and filling!
