What I Made This Week

I’m going with a back to basics theme this week.  At least that’s the plan.  I’m always searching for ways to cheat but not cheat on the low carb plan.  Instead of trying to trick myself, I’m going to make things as easy as possible for myself.  This week I’m going to try to eat stuff that is either high protein, a vegetable or a fruit.  And just see what happens.  So, here’s what I’ve made this week:

Apple Cookies

I love this recipe from Rachel Schultz.  Her blog is gorgeous and chock full of recipes and home decor and BOOKS! It’s like all of my favorite things wrapped up in one blog.  Here are my apple cookies:




I made mine with what I had on hand, peanut butter, dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips.  These were absolutely delicious.  They are quick and easy to make and a healthy sweet snack.


I also made these Roasted Sweet Potatoes from Tyler Florence of the Food Network.


People, if you like sweet potatoes, you gotta make these.  They were so good.  I could eat those as a meal.  I think they may make the Thanksgiving menu this year.  They are Paleo, gluten free and delish.
