Slow The Flow and Decrease The Roll
eating slower may lead to a smaller waist line

If your body has one major flaw, this is it: It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it's had enough. A study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that slow eaters took in 66 fewer calories per meal, but compared to their fast-eating peers, they felt like they had eaten more. What's 66 calories, you ask? If you can do that at every meal, you'll lose more than 20 pounds a year. One way that will help you slow it down is taking a drink of water between bites.

More often than not the body confuses thirst or dehydration for hunger. Drink a full glass of water before eating a meal and you will find you eat much much less but, still feel satisfied.

Have an excellent day.

Low Glycemic Carb Low Sugar Vegan Raw Food Cookies
Serves: 24
Carbs Per Serving: 7.1 g
Prep Time:<30 minutes

The raw food diet is a craze right now. A raw food diet based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, grains, beans, nuts and dried fruit.

It is asserted that heating food above 110 degrees F is believed to destroy enzymes in food that can assist in the digestion and absorption of food. Cooking is also thought to diminish the nutritional value and "life force" of food.

My little sister, Jill who goes by Kin's, shared this recipe with me a while back and I made it yesterday and just pulled it out of the dehydrator this morning. These cookies were amazing and really good for you. I made a few tweaks to it but, I think it made them better. ;)

2 cups Raw Cashews
1 cup Raw Almonds
1 cup Raw Walnuts
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
a pinch of salt
1/8 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a dash to taste of
Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder


Quantities can be fudged, this is a very forgiving recipe.

Make sure to buy 'raw' nuts and not roasted. If it doesn't say 'raw', it is roasted.

Soak nuts overnight by simply putting nuts in glass jars and fill to the top with water. Soaking releases enzymes.

Drain nuts and put them in a food processor. Blend thoroughly until it is smooth but not too smooth.

Put the nuts and the remaining ingredient in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Form balls and shape into cookies.

Dehydrate at 105ish degrees (to maintain raw enzymes) for probably 24 hours or desired consistency. If you don't have a dehydrator no worries. Simple set your oven to warm with the door cracked.
