🎃🍨 When you start playing around with all different recipes, you can begin to make up your own.  This turned out better than most “regular” ice creams I’ve ever had!  Perfect for pumpkin spice lovers… even those who are not following a ketogenic diet.  I recently purchased the Cuisinart ICE-21 1.5 Quart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream Maker.  It’s much less expensive than many other ice cream makers, but after reading all the reviews, many people preferred it over pricier models.  It’s worked great so far for us.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Set a medium size bowl in the freezer.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine cream, sweetener and coffee over medium heat. Stir until sweetener and coffee dissolve and are heated through – about 2 minutes.
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk egg yolks with maple flavoring, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
  4. Slowly add egg and spice mixture to saucepan of cream and coffee, whisking to combine and heat through – about 90 seconds to 2 minutes.  Take off heat and allow to cool about 2 minutes.
  5. Remove bowl from freezer and pour mixture into bowl. 
  6. Add pumpkin, coconut oil and vanilla and whisk to combine. 
  7. Return bowl to freezer for 20-30 minutes to allow to cool enough to add to ice cream maker.
  8. Pour into the canister of an ice cream maker and churn according to directions. (Mine always churns a little faster than they say it will take, so keep an eye on it.)  Once churned, transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.

    If you’re like my daughter, Olivia and I, you will want to have a bowl straight out of the ice cream maker first!  (Not so pretty… but oh, so delicious!)

Keto Bagel Recipe

Keto Bagel Recipe
image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

🍞🥖One of the biggest things people are concerned about when starting Keto is that they’re going to miss bread.  There are so many different Keto bread recipes…. I absolutely LOVE this bagel recipe.  SUPER Easy and so delicious.  💥Lord! I had one today –  sliced,  and then slathered with Grass Fed Ghee and a little extra Everything But the Bagel Seasoning.  SOOOO Good! And filling!! 

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cup Almond flour

1 tbsp Gluten-free baking powder

2 1/2 Cups Mozzarella cheese (grated)

2 oz Cream Cheese 

2 Large Eggs 

Everything But the Bagel Seasoning or Sesame Seeds (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.   Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

2.  Stir the almond flour and baking powder together and set aside.

3.  Beat the eggs with a fork in a separate small bowl – set aside.

4.  Combine the mozzarella and cream cheese in a large bowl.  Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Stir again at the end until well incorporated.  Or to heat on the stove, use a double boiler over low heat, stirring frequently, until completely melted and easy to stir.
*TIP* Spray your spoon with coconut oil cooking spray to avoid the cheese sticking.

5.   Stir the flour mixture and eggs into the melted cheese.  Work quickly while the cheese is still hot.  Knead with your hands until you have a dough. It will be very sticky, but  knead together until everything is well incorporated.

6.  Divide the dough into 6 parts.  Roll in your hands to get some length with each part, then press the ends together to make a bagel shape on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.  Spray lightly w/a little coconut cooking spray and then sprinkle the Everything But the Bagel Seasoning or Sesame Seeds and press into each bagel lightly.

7.  Bake for 10-14 minutes, until the bagels are firm and golden.  Keep an eye on them so they don’t get too dark. (I missed the timer the first time I made them and they were a little darker than I would’ve liked – but still Oh So Delicious!)

*Store in the refrigerator and slice to toast if you’d like it warm and crispy.

Banana Cream Fat Bombs

Banana Cream Fat Bombs

👨🏻‍🍳 I created this recipe after reading lots of other fat bomb recipes.  I made them tonight and even before they were refrigerated – they tasted amazing.  I mean, I HAD to lick the beaters and the spoon, right?  😀

Tip 1 :  Try some other flavors instead of banana.  I’m currently having orange 🍊(like a creamsicle flavor) and going to try lemon next. 🍋

Tip 2:  🥄Spray your spoon with coconut or avocado cooking spray and they’ll slide off much better into the mold.

Tip 3: To find the flavors/extracts I use – click on the underlined words.

Ingredients:
1 ¼ cups Cream Cheese – room temperature (1 brick plus 2 oz)
¾ cup Heavy Whipping Cream ( I use Horizon Organic)
1 tablespoon Banana Extract  or Banana Flavor
10 drops Vanilla or Plain Stevia (Add or lessen to taste) AND
1 Tsp Swerve confectioners sweetener (OR You can use all stevia or all swerve or another sweetener of your choice.  Just add slowly and taste after blending in each addition.)

Banana Flavor Vanilla Stevia

Instructions:
1. Spray a 30 well silicone mold with coconut oil baking spray or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  – Set aside. (Here’s the one I use: http://bit.ly/30CavitySiliconeMold)

2. In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, heavy cream, banana extract/flavor and sweeteners until smooth and very thick, about 5 minutes.

3. Spoon into the silicone mold (I filled 25 of the 30 wells) or if using baking sheet, spoon into mounds leaving some space between each.  Place the baking sheet into the freezer until firm – about 30 mins to  1 hour.


4. Pop them out and store and store your banana cream fat bombs in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
enjoy

Healthy Weight Loss That Finally Worked

Healthy Weight Loss
image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

Do you have that one pair of  “Goal” Jeans?  You know – the ones that sit in your closet or back of a drawer silently mocking you and all your proclamations that “This Time” you were going to lose the weight and get back into them?

I did and I’m so excited to happily fit into them without worrying the button is going to fly off and pop someone in the eye!  

Healthy Weight Loss that works
More importantly, I’ve found the answer as to why all my previous attempts at weight loss left me frustrated and down on myself… gaining any weight back and then some that I might’ve grudgingly gotten off.  (What’s up with eating less and still gaining?)

Health has become a passion for me.  It’s something many of us take for granted until it’s in question.  I’ve struggled for so many years with health issues.  As I’ve started to figure them out with the help of integrative medicine, these products have become a big piece of the puzzle.  More than just another weight loss product – a way to clear the toxins from your cells so your body readily releases fat.  

Once you “get into agreement” with your body, it can stop being an enemy and it’s amazing the results you can have.  I shed 9 pounds in my first 10 days and 5 more so far in the few weeks after.  For someone who can’t always exercise because of back issues, that’s pretty huge.  Especially when for the 10 months prior I had been carefully documenting every calorie in the My Fitness Pal app and eating only between 1400-1500 calories with absolutely no results.  Even when exercising and eating gluten-free and organic.

Healthy Weight Loss
Breakthrough science using all organic and natural ingredients is the key.  And I’m so grateful to have found it. If you’re ready for Your breakthrough transformation, get all the info and order here:

What a great title, right?  🙂

50 Secrets of Prosperity from Randy Gage

image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

Randy Gage is one of our All-TIme Favorites …

Randy Gage

He’s a good-looking bald guy (much like one of the authors of this blog)  😉 
–who used to be beyond broke
–and is now extremely wealthy
–by providing TONS of value to his clients

He recently published an incredible list of his
“50 Secrets Of Prosperity”

Here’s the list below.  

What else would *YOU* add to the list?
(Please leave your comments below!)

1) Rich people think differently than broke people.

2) Healthy people think differently than sick people.

3) Happy people think differently than depressed people.

4) You’re not poor because you don’t have money.  You’re poor if you don’t have a dream.

5) Governments do not create prosperity.  At best, they facilitate it.  Usually, they squander it.

6) Money at its very essence is energy – which can be attracted or repelled.

money is energy

7) With a powerful vision that pulls you toward it – you bend the universe to your will.

8) When your dream is bold enough, the facts no longer matter.

9) Your past does not have to determine your future.  But only when you decide to break the cycle.

10) You can watch five to six hours of television a day, or you can be rich, but you can’t do both.

11) You can be a victim or a victor, but you can’t be both.

12) Poverty is not the absence of money and material things; it is a mindset.

A-Rich-Mindset-will-destroy-the-poverty-mindset

13) Prosperity is not an abundance of money and material things; it is a mindset.

14) You might think you have a money shortage, but it’s really only an idea shortage.

15) Never let anyone else’s limiting belief become yours.

16) If you want to become wealthy, stop taking financial advice from broke people.

17) Your wealth grows exactly at the same rate your prosperity consciousness does.

18) The only free cheese is in the mousetrap.

19) Wealth is created by adding value and solving problems.

20) You must be willing to let go of who you have been, to become who you are meant to be.

21) Prosperity is your birthright and natural condition.

Prosperity is your birthright

22) The universe can only do for you what it can do through you.

23) Gossiping about others creates a negative prosperity debt.

24) You must be willing to give up some things you want, to get the things you really want.

25) If you don’t invest in yourself, it’s probably a pretty bad investment for anyone else.

26) Only argue for the limitations you really want to keep!

27) Only acknowledge your limitations for the purpose of overcoming them.

28) To embolden yourself, surround yourself with bold people.

29) Money doesn’t buy happiness.  But neither does poverty.

30) Bills are simply invoices for blessings you’ve already received.  Treat them accordingly.

31) Surround yourself with people who dream bigger than you do.

32) You can’t out give the universe.

33) The best thing you can do for the poor, hungry and exploited is not be one of them.

34) When you get negative people out of your life, negative things happen a lot less frequently.

35) Vengeance must walk out before love can walk in.

36) The universe won’t give you your next assignment until you’re overqualified for your current one.

37) Let go of the need to be liked.  Successful people threaten mediocrity.

38) Haters don’t hate you.  They hate themselves because they don’t have the guts to do what you’re doing.

39) Salesy is always better than brokey.

40) Never shop anywhere women are wearing curlers in their hair.

41) Build your own dream instead of borrowing the dreams of others.

42) Build a dream so compelling it pulls you towards it.

43) Your dream needs to be as big as you are.  And that’s really big.

44) If you’re not scared, you need a bigger goal.

45) When you make your dream bigger, it makes you bigger.

46) If you find yourself starting over too much, stop giving up so easily.

47) To unleash your power, start believing in your power.

48) If your dream isn’t outrageous, you’re just not being realistic.

49) Treat the people you meet today as if they will be gone tomorrow.

50) Make sure you die with more memories than dreams.

Do Or Do Not — There Is No Try!

Do or do not there is no try
image_pdfClick for PDFimage_printClick to Print

When you make a decision to go for the goal, there’s only one way to go.

Forward!!

So how long will it take? Well, as long as it takes.

So you have to be ready to do “whatever” it takes!!

In today’s fast-paced world of “instant gratification” many people fall flat on their faces because they’re not 100% committed to their goal.

In most cases, it requires time, commitment, a daily relentless pursuit.

In fact, the HARDEST part of the journey in most cases …

Is taking the FIRST step!

The commitment to DO (and “not” DO NOT!)

Like the great philosopher Yoda once said,

Yoda

I’m telling you this from my own personal experience.

You see …

3 years and 3 months ago, I was told to commit to
“8 Core Commitments.”

Without exception.

The long and the short of it, I did.  Most days!

But, I did “substitute” in the recipe.

Some may say the recipe didn’t come out with the optimal results so far.

(Editor’s Note: We’ve still done all right.  We were bankrupt in Dec 2011.  We started our new online business in March 2012.  Had our first 5-figure month within 90 days.  Generated $250,000+ in our first year and are now getting closer to $1M 3+ years later. )

So … back to following directions.

Here’s my commitment to you:

I’ll be your best example of following through over the
next 90 days.

If you’ll commit to being the best student!

Here it is …

1) Follow the 8 Core Commitments.
2) Learn the skills along the way …
3) You’ll make mistakes (just like me)
4) Which will help you to master these skills faster.

Just like when you first got on that bicycle as a kid.

And made the first “mistake.”

bike knee fall

I look down at my right knee and can still see the scar from when I “crashed and burned.”

It’s a reminder of one of the first “scariest moments” of my life that I quickly overcame.

In the moment, it was traumatic.

(Could I even get back on the bike and ride again?)

Of course, I did.  A few hours later, I never looked back.

So let’s take this life lesson and apply it to anything NEW …

When you start to think about it …

That’s how ALL moments in life are.

What appears IMPOSSIBLE at this moment …

May look ridiculously simple 6 months, 6 years or 6 decades from now.

So here we go …

1) Take Massive Action … right now!
2) DO (or do not!) There is no “try!”
3) Enjoy the process each day!

Whether you know it or not, you have the ability right now to change the trajectory of your family’s legacy for the better.

It all depends on what you’ll do …

Starting …

NOW!

Please leave your comments below and let me know what you’ve decided.

 

  1. Do or Do Not. There Is No Try!

    As you’re watching this video, I want you to think about a decision or action you’ve been hesitating on, and then make a commitment (right now!) to DO it!!!
  2. When You Figure Out What You Want To Do With Your Life …

    One of my favorite scenes from any movie ever made, which fortunately for me, I saw at a young age (age 20). It gave me the confidence in that moment to:

    1) Start searching for what I wanted to do for the rest of my life …

    2) And once I found that “thing” …

    3) To start IMMEDIATELY!!!

    It’s EXACTLY what Napoleon Hill taught in his classic, “Think And Grow Rich” book. (Specifically from “Six Steps That Turn Desire Into Gold!”)

3 years ago, like I mentioned earlier, my life was a mess. I was in the middle of a personal bankruptcy, my marriage was in jeopardy, and I was considering “settling” for an unhappy existence “on the job.”

Fortunately, I remembered the advice I just wrote about above …

And started searching for a community of powerful entrepreneurs who could show me EXACTLY how to go from ZERO to $10,000+/mth within 90 days …

And to do it online …

So my family could choose to live where it loves.

And, most importantly, my wife Melissa and I could continue to be the primary influence in our kids’ upbringings.
