I had a couple of requests for my healthy carrot cake recipe (it has no sugar or butter it). For those of you who don't know, I'm STILL on my "get rid of the baby weight" diet (sigh, for those of you can relate, metabolisms suck as you get older). This hits the spot when you have a craving Enjoy ! 🥕 CARROT CAKE RECIPE
1 cup of almond flour
2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 whole eggs
1/4 cup of organic honey
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of organic carrot, peeled and grated
1/4 cup crushed no salt walnuts (or any other nuts)
ESSENTIALS FOR THE FROSTING
1/2 cup of light ocream cheese
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of Stevia
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and mix the baking powder, cinnamon and almond flour together in a bowl. Set aside.
Next, beat 2 whole eggs well, until foamy in consistency. Once foamy, add 1/4 cup organic honey. Then, beat again for approximately 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the apple sauce, vanilla extract and coconut oil to the bowl. Mix well.
Next, add in the half of the dry ingredients you initially set aside. Mix thoroughly. Then, add the remaining dry ingredients and stir well. Finally, add the grated carrots and crushed walnuts. Pour the batter into a greased 8 inch cake pan. I spray my pan with PAM coconut oil spray. Make sure the batter is spread out evenly so you don't end up with a lop sided cake! Bake the batter in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
While it is baking, make the light cream cheese frosting: take 1/2 cup of light cream cheese and beat until soft for about a minute.
Next, add the 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Continue to beat the mixture for about 2-3 minutes until well combined. Finally, stir in 1 teaspoon of Stevia. Place the cream cheese frosting mixture in fridge until ready to use.When the cake is done, remove from then oven. After the cake has cooled completely to room temperature, spread the frosting on evenly. Lastly, place the cake in the fridge until the frosting is set. Top the the cake with 1/4 cup of crushed walnuts!
& just like that I'm 3.9kg down in two weeks Well not really just like that I've been so consistent with the gym & eating well - I'm just hoping this weightloss continues!! 11 months postpartum and still about 8kg heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight #14kgsdown#babyweightsucks
Wearing something other than activewear for once ! So far from where I want to be but am keen to jump on the scales tomorrow as I've been eating strict & getting my sessions in at the gym ! 🏼 #babyweightsucks#gettingthereslowly
I used to hate people taking pictures of me because I was so self conscience about how I looked, especially after having a child. But now I can tell that I've slimmed down alot, almost down to pre-Presley lol. My confidence is going back up! #BabyWeightSucks#TookMe5Yrs

Today I am eating my Shakeology superfoods!
Who doesn't love cafe latte pudding with strawberries, chocolate chips, and shaved almonds!
Eating healthy and loving it!
The hardest part is 🏻pressing play
This workout and I have A love hate relationship.
I LOVE the results, but HATE the dying feeling I have doing the workouts!
When I am done I feel empowered, confident, and BADASS! ️♀️
Today I FAILED, but I failed FORWARD!
Myles was up most of the night, so I was tired and lazy!
This lead to lazy eating! I grabbed bread out of the freezer and just didn't care because I was tired! Instead of working out during nap time I laid on the couch and feel asleep!
Lunch came along and I cheated again with Tostitos!
I cranked the music and we had a dance party! It was time to turn the day around! I drank my shakeology for supper and cut the cravings! 🏼♀️We went for a long walk and got my 10'000 steps in and I refocused my mind for a new start tomorrow! The point to take away from this is that we all struggle, we all have a bad day or meal! It is all about accepting it and moving forward!
Tomorrow is a New Day and I am ready for it
