Hello lovely friends! Hope everyone had a fabulous & safe Memorial Weekend! I spent the weekend in Santa Barbara & Los Olivos for a little wine tasting. It really was great to get away for a few days. Los Olivos is one of my FAVORITE weekend getaways.

So, if ever out that way…some great wineries to stop at include:

***COQUELICOT

***RUSACK

***QUPE

***SARLOOS

***KOEHLER 

***CARHARTT

***STOLPMAN FAMILY VINEYARDS

Anyway…just thought I’d share a few of my top! ;) Moving into this new week, (since the past three days have been gluttonous) I’m back on track with my diet.

TODAY will be a very LOW CARB! Lol,  this is what my extreme ass does when coming off a HIGH CARB, I don’t give a fakkkk weekend. I go the other extreme.

*egg whites…chicken breast…lettuce. no joke.

Todays recipe, is one that I made last week, but didn’t get the chance to share yet. I just cant get enough of pineapple lately, so I’ve been puttin’ that shit on everrrrrrythang! As you know, I often find inspiration for trying new experiments through my Instagram friends.

You can find the recipe above. The Instructions could not be EASIER!

DIRECTIONS:

  1. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 *
  2. GREASE A SMALL LOAF PAN OR ANY CUTE/SMALL PIE PAN;) (I use coconut oil spray from TJs)
  3. MIX ALL DRY INGREDIENTS IN A MEDIUM BOWL.  (Protein, coconut flour, shredded coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, pinch of salt)
  4. NOW ADD WET INGREDIENTS. (egg whites, vanilla extract, SF honey or agave)
  5. FOLD IN 1/8 CUP CHOPPED PINEAPPLE
  6. COOK FOR 12-15 MINS. (She says 30 min, but mine cooked much faster in my breville convection oven.)

The best part of this whole thing….is eggggzactly that. This recipe is for 1 serving!!! That means…you get to eat the WHOLE thing! Ok, here’s the breakdown of the nutritional facts.

REMEMBER: SUBTRACT THE DIETARY FIBER FROM THE CARBS TO CALCULATE “NET” CARBS.

(Carbs that come from fiber have a minimal affect on blood sugar)
