Flax Tortilla Wrap

I got this recipe from the book "Wheat Belly".  In the back it had some recipes.  I wrote some of them done but haven't tried them but today I tried the wrap.  I change the spices to fit my tastes.  You could do the same too.  I bet this would be good with a taco seasoning and use them for a taco.

Flax Tortilla Wrap
3 Tbsp ground flax seed(I like the golden flax)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried parsley
pinch of sea salt
1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 Tbsp water
1 lg egg

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.  Grease a glass pie pan.  Pour in batter and spread evenly.  Microwave to 2minutes.  Flip and then microwave an additional minute.  Remove from pan and cool on wire rack for 5 minutes before use.  Makes 1 tortilla wrap.

What's up:)

Well, since my last what's up post, I was back smoking.  On July 1st, my hubby and I made a pact.  He would quit chewing and I would quit smoking.  I threw my pack of cigs away and he threw is tin of chew away.  Since then I have not had one puff and as far as I know, hubby hasn't had any chew.  Also on the 11th of July I started a sugar fast with some friends of mine.  I am doing a modified version to stay on my Atkins lifestyle.  No sweetener, no alcohol, no processed food of any kind(hidden sugars and fillers) for 30 days.  I fell off on the 12th as my in-laws took us out for dinner at a chinese buffet with sushi.  I splurged big time.  So I started over on the 15th when I got home from vacation.  Today, I also started a 10 day whole body cleansing with a all natural kit.  To help kick start my weight loss again and to cleanse my body of toxins.  Been drinking to much these last couple of months:(  It's hard not to splurge with summer here, all the family and friends get-togethers, and weddings.  Now, I need to get back into gear and get back to working out.  Been slacking on that too.  Today is a new day!!!  I CAN DO IT!!!!

Chocolate Mint Creamsicle

I used the basic recipe from Low Carb Layla's peaches and cream popsicles and played around with it.

Chocolate Mint Creamsicle
1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup SF chocolate syrup
2  very small drops of peppermint oil(stronger then extract)

Mix ingredients and pour into molds.  Freeze 4 hours or overnight.  If you can't find peppermint oil, peppermint  extract will work too.  Add 1/2 tsp then taste.  Add more to get your desired flavor.

Coconut Chocolate Pudding

I had some left over coconut cream that I needed to use up, so I added some chocolate whey protein powder and it turned out thick and creamy like chocolate pudding.  So I thought I would share it will you.

Coconut Chocolate Pudding
1 cup coconut cream
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder(i use pure protein)

Whisk until thick and creamy.  Pour in 2 serving dishes.  You can top with whipped cream, shredded unsweetened coconut, chopped nuts, or a strawberry.
