KETOGENIC Lemon Poppy Muffins

Friday, April 15th 2016

People tend to think just because you are a nutritionist or a health practitioner; you don’t have carvings or have found an ideal fuel plan. Some have, lucky them… I am getting there. Walking the talk is about not giving up, it is to have the courage to get back up after a fall.

Lately, I have tried to cut out fruits – I know – it is healthy and loaded with great phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. But for me, right now, it was the right decision. If I look at my family disease history (DNA Test) I need to takes beautiful care of my liver 🙂 (we kind of all have to do that but with my genes specifically) The fruit sugar can be a problem when the liver is not in tip-top shape. Does this mean I will cut our fruit forever? NO – I might try some berries back in in a month or two. But this has pushed me to find new recipes like smoothies without fruits or like these little dreamers, Ketogenic Lemon Poopy Muffins, delicious. Enjoy!
