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:
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.
While scrolling through, I noticed the homie, @fitseed , post a delicious lookin’ Pineapple Coconut Cake. I was like, “ooooommmggeeeeeee!” Yep. Making this NOW! I had all the ingredients, plus a few subs, so I got to mixin. OOHHHH, & if you’re VEGAN, click here , she posts the vegan alternative!
You can find the recipe above. The Instructions could not be EASIER!
- PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 *
- GREASE A SMALL LOAF PAN OR ANY CUTE/SMALL PIE PAN;) (I use coconut oil spray from TJs)
- MIX ALL DRY INGREDIENTS IN A MEDIUM BOWL. (Protein, coconut flour, shredded coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, pinch of salt)
- NOW ADD WET INGREDIENTS. (egg whites, vanilla extract, SF honey or agave)
- FOLD IN 1/8 CUP CHOPPED PINEAPPLE
- 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)

**You can top it with a little more chopped pineapple, or chopped banana, or maybe some cushed nuts. What the Hell…Just play with it. Be aware of added calories for optional toppings:/
So moving on…Other than Kim K and Kanye getting married…I have a new GET THE LOOK!! DASSSSSS ITTTTTT!
But seriously… I haven’t posted a “get the look” in a long ass while. Oh, and if you’re hating on my selfies…stop hatin. I’m a blogger. I’m allowed, and I like my outfit…so what!? #gurlbyeeee
