CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST – HOW DOES IT TASTE?

Hi Guys: So I am on this new Keto diet. I am still learning how it works but basically you can only have 30g of carbs daily and eat all the meat that you want. People loose tons of weight on this diet. The first week I lost 8 lbs. I know people who have lost close to 30lbs in one month. This is my second week. Guys it is soooo hard to not eat carbs and sugars. We have been eating carbs, tremendous amounts, since we were kids. It is going to be hard to let go. I messed up on my 9th day, got depressed and got back on it the next day. I cannot dwell on mess-ups. I have a goal and I plan to reach it in the next couple of months. I was totally kicked out of ketosis after that and had to start over.

The keto diet is a high fat, protein diet and very, very low carbs. That means no bread period. No rice, no potatoes and absolutely no sugars (Not event fruits). You can only have 30 carbs a day (1 little Debbie cake is like 48 carbs alone). So don’t even think about cheating!! We are all addicted to sugar and if you can get past the sugar cravings. You will be ok. Typically I eat any meat I want and broccoli. Broccoli has very low carbs. I eat that often for fiber. I try to eat lean meats such as salmon and other fish but you can definitely have steak and other meats as well.

When you are craving bread like I was tonight, my friend was like try the cauliflower pizza crust or a cauliflower store pizza. I was very skeptical about it but, I am trying to loose a few pounds for my trip to the Dominican Republic with Kim and two other of my girlfriends. So, I went to Kroger and bought a pizza, not really expecting much. In the end, I was shocked. It tasted just like regular pizza crust. I am so serious, anyone that knows me knows that I am super picky about food. This time I must say, I was pleasantly surprise. I noticed that cauliflower is being used a lot for bread replacement and it’s actually good for you. So, I look forward to trying new cauliflower recipes. I will keep you posted on my Keto journey. When I hit my first goal of 20 lbs, I will post what and how I got to that point. So, Stay tuned.

10- day GREEN SMOOTHIE CHALLENGE

What a challenge. Where do I begin?!? I’m going to try and make this short. A few months before my Paris, France trip I decided I was going to loose a few pounds, because I picked up a some weight due to being off work for 6 weeks related to some surgery I had….let me tell ya (SIGH), I super stoked at first; I went to the grocery store and bought all my ingredients, I even bought 6 cute little cups and chalkboard labels to label each flavor , but QUICKLY (ZOOOOM) once I started this challenge, I thought to myself what have I gotten myself into. Talk about discipline, its something serious. This challenge requires no MEAT or SWEETS , you are to drink only a 12 oz cup of smoothie 1 for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and you can drink detox tea as well…YEP that’s it, now in between for snacks, you can eat dry fruit or nuts. All of this for 10 days straight. Preparation is key, I suggest whipping of your smoothies the night before and letting them sit in the freezer or refrigerator over night. I liked mine super cold. By doing this, before heading out of the door for work, all you’ll have to do is reach into the fridge, grab your smoothie’s and you’re ready to roll out. Do this every night before the following day for the complete 10 days.

I referred to J.J Smith 10-day smoothie cleanse for guidance and the recipes. Please click on the link to purchase the book.

In conclusion: I felt better, felt lighter, skin looked and felt smoother, and I reached my goal of losing 10 pounds. So I will end this with saying, the 1st couple of days were rough, but afterwards it gets a LITTLE bit easier and its definitely worth it all.

Can’t you tell by the look on my face (below) how much I’m enjoying this challenge ***SIGH**** Beside that aren’t you loving my DIY deep purple cardigan that I’m rocking 🙂

XOXOXOXO…..Ms. Kim Austin
