As you guys know, or if you don’t, every time I eat processed sugar I get super sick!  So I’m trying everything I can to get in something sweet with all the right ingredients.  All thanks to my BBF foods in my pantry! (Better Body Foods)  I’ve made a million recipes with their ingredients.  This is where I go to get all my protein, organic foods like avocado oil, coconut oil, cacao powder, maca powder, chia seed, super seed etc.  They have the best choices and its all natural and pure.  Nothing artificial added to their products which is what I always look for when reading labels!  So you can trust their products!  I’ve shared them with you so much, but I don’t share anything that I don’t absolutely love and thats a tried and true product for me and my family.  So onto these amazing cookies, which are super easy to make.  

PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

INGREDIENTS 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat Oven to 350
  • Add coconut oil to a bowl and warm up until less chunky.  In a large bowl, add in Coconut oil, honey, egg and peppermint extract.  Stir and mix up until its fluffy.  
  • Add flour, salt, cacao powder, pink salt, baking powder, baking soda to the wet mix.  Mix up until it becomes a dough.
  • Add chocolate chips and stir in, then chill in the freezer for 10 mins while the oven heats up.
  • Crush up the candy canes.  I unwrap them and put them into a plastic sack  to smash them up.
  • Form dough into small balls 1.5 inches apart (heaping 1 Tsbp) and place onto ungreased parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Press the tops down a little and place on more chocolate chips.  
  • Bake for 8-10 mins.  The edges will be slightly dry and the tops will look soft.  Let it sit on a cookie sheet for a few minutes, then sprinkle the candy canes on top of the cookies immediately.
  • Let cool before eating!

OH MY GOSH. This quinoa bowl is so divine.  Better Body Foods has the best and most trusted quinoa!  I know there is nothing added to it.  Its pure as can be, super easy to cook and I honestly cook the entire package at once, so I have it on hand to throw in bowls and meals.  Here is my quick 4 ingredient recipe with this amazing quinoa.  I’ve literally had it for lunch for 2 months straight.  This is a sneak peek at what will be in my next MEAL PLAN!

YOU WILL NEED.

  • 1/2 cup cooked Quinoa
  • 4 Tbsp Garlic Dill Sauerkraut (the kind I get is at good earth, sprouts and whole foods)
  • 1 Tbsp Reduced Fat Veganese
  • 1 Cup cooked brocooli
  • 4 oz Grilled Chicken Breast

Step 1: Cook the quinoa according to the package. 

Step 2: Cook your chicken breast how you prefer.  Currently I like grilling mine with some pink salt & pepper with a little Better Body Food Avocado oil.

Step 3: Steam your broccoli.  I use an Insta pot. I put a little water on the bottom and place the broccoli on the tray on top, cook for 15 mins.  SO EASY.

Step 4: Once all 3 of those are done.  Slice the chicken breast up and broccoli. Grab a large bowl, add in 1/2 cup quinoa, 1 tbsp veganese, 4 tbsp sauerkraut, chicken and broccoli.  Mix it all up and enjoy!

MEAL PREP TIP: Cook your chicken and quinoa ahead of time and set in tupperware in your fridge.  I prefer GLASS TUPPERWARE.   I do this with my quinoa and chicken, and its so easy to throw together.  I like to have my steamed broccoli fresh, but if you can’t make that ahead of time as well!
