Pregnancy Anti-Nausea Nutrient Dense Ginger Chewy Cookies {grain free, primal, WAPF}

Whoa, so that was a mouthful of a title. Dude. I made these today for a recently knocked up friend of mine who feels like death on a stick. So good. I took a few recipes and made up my own so they are not perfect, but they are delightful. They are fairly low sugar, low carb, but not my usual keto low carb high fat-ness, so they actually taste really, really good.

The truth is, pregos and new mamas just deserve cookies. And these lovelies will make you feel better AND feel good about the fact that you are actually getting some wicked nutrition to your growing bump. Even if people ain’t gotta clue what’s under the hood. I hate those first few weeks of feeling like a marshmallow. Bahhh. Eat the cookie and tell everyone to eff off.

These babies have a few of my favorite pregnancy things:

Ginger. A shit ton. And so good for that all day morning sickness crap.

Ghee. I am telling you, fat gets rid of the nausea. You want carbs, but I promise fat actually makes you feel better. AND lots of cultures have been using Ghee for years as a pregnancy super boost. Just eat the ghee.

Eggs. The perfect pregnancy food rich in choline for that baby.

Flax meal. High fiber, excellent source of Omega-3s, vitamin E, and B complex vitamins, and minerals such as: manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.

Black strap molasses. I think this is a superfood – medicinal powerhouse.

“Blackstrap molasses has a low glycemic index. This means the glucose and carbohydrates are metabolized slowly, demanding less insulin production and stabilizing blood sugar. This results in less lipids or fats being stored in the liver while reducing your diabetes 2 risk factor.

Because of its high iron content, many use blackstrap molasses to holistically overcome anemia. Iron is essential to creating red blood cells. In addition to iron, blackstrap molasses contains folate, a natural source for folic acid, along with some other B vitamins, which all combine to form the synergistic mix that promotes red blood cell production.

Then there is magnesium in abundance, along with calcium. Magnesium is important for balancing calcium for bone production and energy. It is necessary for the smooth function of our nervous system. The mineral is essential to over 300 metabolic processes and the synthesis of almost all the other minerals and vitamins.”

In other news, if you follow me on Insta (@eatcleanpissglitter, duh) you already know. BUTT, yesterday I discovered that you can add fizz (carbonated water) to Starsucks drinks! Yessss, uh-huh I KNOW. So I got a half green half passion fruit iced tea ADD FIZZ. NO sugar. SOOOOOO AMAZING. Pregos need two things: fizz and cookies.

#butterbooty Burger Lounge Giveaway + Keto Krispies Cereal! {sugar-free grain-free paleoish low carb}

You. Guys. I miss cereal so much with my whole heart. I love it. The problem is when I have cereal, I have like 5 bowls not 1. So whilst I preach the moderation wagon, this is one treat I actually really cannot indulge in.  At least not Rice Crispies (my weakness). Except for when I am in the hospital recovering from having a child, Rice Krispies on Rice Krispies on Rice Krispies!

So when I came across this recipe I was beyond intrigued. Made a few modifications and arrived at Keto Krispies. YUMMMM!

 Keto Krispiesketo krispiesIngredients

3 cups coconut flakes (unsweetened)

1/4 of water

1 cup hemp seeds

2 teaspoons of Xyla (could use stevia or something else or maple syrup if not concerned with sugars)

2 teaspoons of Vanilla extract

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of salt

3 tablespoons melted ghee (or pasture butter or coconut oil)

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Line Cookie sheet with with parchment paper.
  2.  Melt ghee in a sauce pan over low
  3. In a large bowl, add water along with cinnamon, salt, vanilla and xyla. Whisk until dry ingredients are dissolved. Add ghee. Add coconut flakes and stir well until flakes are evenly coated. Be sure flakes are not sticking together. Taste for sweetness.  Add more sweetener if desired.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and carefully stir. Bake for 15 minutes. Keep repeating process until golden brown and krispy, but KEEP an eye out. Mine burned. But I still LOVE IT.
  5. Pour some with a little coconut milk, raw milk, heavy cream whatever. You really do not need a lot of liquid, it absorbs it like crazy! ENJOY!

#butterbooty Burger Lounge Giveaway

So, the #butterbooty challenge is rocking my world. You all are so awesome and inspiring, and also, totally kicking your own donks which is fun for me. One thing I want to share over this 12 week challenge is that eating can be enjoyable. You do not have to be a crazy person, and you should indulge here and there. That said, if you have not discovered Burger Lounge or do not have one near you, I sincerely apologize. Like, from the bottom of my heart apologize.

Burger Lounge is one of my favorite places to go out to eat at on the entire planet! Simply because it is beyond delicious, and I can get a wholesome, humanely raised, paleoish/primal/keto meal anytime I would like. AND hubs is obsessed. And is Wubbas. So it’s like a “healthy” restaurant my hubs can enjoy, too. NOT always the case.

burger lounge

Their beef is grass-fed, their turkey is free-range, they use local produce and based their restaurant truly on the real food movement. What is NOT to love? I can go and get an amazing lettuce wrapped Turkey burger with pickles, and hubs can get fries, a shake, whatever and enjoy his life. Heaven for us both.

Anyhooters, my friends at Burger Lounge are giving away two $20 gift cards, to be selected at random with a #butterbooty Instagram check-in:

1. Post a photo of you doing something amazing for yourself be it completing a #butterbooty workout, eating something delightful (and a touch healthy), walking, resting, whatever and tag @eatcleanpissglitter + @burgerlounge + #butterbooty.

2. Winner will be selected at random on Friday at 7pm PST.

Alright #butterbooty lovers? Get after it!

#GutCheck Recipe: Ginger Spice Slice

Ginger Benefits

This is probably one of my favorite recipes featured in the three week Gut Check in Eat Clean. Piss Glitter! Well you should know first and foremost that I love ginger, ADORE GINGER. I am a ginger kid. It makes my tummy flatter, my liver so happy and I just feel alive when I eat/drink it in juice. So this little lady lovely is straight from my three week Gut Check that is wonderful to be consumed before or after meals to help soothe your tummy, and hopefully aid in digestion.

A small gingery warning: This recipe is NOT for the faint of heart. This is very spicy. If you would like it to be less spicy, I suggest slicing your ginger as THIN as possible and add a little filtered water.

Ginger actually has broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-parasitic properties, to name just several of its more than 40 pharmacological actions (source).

A Few of the Many MANY MANY Benefits of Ginger

  • Anti-inflammatory – great to ease pain relief and wonderful for those with arthritis, headaches and even MENSTRUAL cramps
  • Ginger can potentially help fight cancer and diabetes
  • Helps stabilize blood sugar
  • Great for nausea, motion and morning sickness, and upset stomach
  • Boosts metabolism by temporarily increasing thermogenesis in your body
  • Fighting bacteria and infections

Best time to Consume Whey Protein

Ever wonder why whey is best after a workout? Because it is absorbed by your body quickly and helps your muscles rebuild. When you workout real hard like whoa, your muscles repair themselves and need to recover. Whey protein helps you recover more quickly, so eat clean and sweat dirty.
