Keto Bagel Recipe

Keto Bagel Recipe

🍞🥖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 (shredded)

2 oz Cream Cheese (cubed)

2 Large Eggs (beaten)

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.  Combine the shredded mozzarella and cubed 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.)

4.   Stir the flour mixture and eggs into the melted cheese mixture. Working quickly while the cheese is still hot, knead with your hands until a dough forms. The dough will be very sticky, but keep kneading and squeezing through your fingers for a few minutes.  *If the dough becomes hard before fully mixed, is too difficult to mix or is still sticky after a couple minutes, you can microwave/reheat for 15-20 seconds to soften it.  Then, back to kneading.

*PLEASE NOTE:  It’s very important for the dough to be completely mixed before proceeding to the next step.  Be sure the cheese and almond flour are completely incorporated.

5.  Divide the dough into 6 parts.  Form/roll a long log with each part, then press the ends together to make a bagel shape on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with the 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.

6.  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!)

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.

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)
1 Tsp Swerve confectioners sweetener (You can use all stevia or all swerve or another sweetener of your choice.  Just add slowly and taste after blending in each addition.)
I got all my sweeteners, extracts and flavorings on Vitacost.  They have great prices.  💵Get $5 off your first order here:  http://bit.ly/5DollarsOffVitacost

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:

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.

Heal Your Money Karma

From Heal Your Money Karma On-Line Course

by Spencer Sherman & Brent Kessel

The following is an excerpt from the “Heal Your Money Karma” on-line course. If you would like to enroll in the course, click here.

Heal Your Money Karma

When we gain awareness of our ancestral money patterns, we have the ability to create spaciousness around our unproductive money habits and beliefs. Spaciousness helps us loosen our grip on old patterns so that they can begin to unravel and we can develop new money habits and beliefs that serve us. We are often impulsive when it comes to money. Training ourselves to pause in the midst of reactivity energetically opens us up to a creative thought, a new insight, a new way of behaving. The money breath you will learn, for example, adds a much-needed pause to this contracted area in our life.

Transforming Old Patterns

The spiritual tools are now available for us to challenge our initiation into money and undo the conditioning of childhood money messages. In place of worn beliefs and undermining behaviors, we can affirm new beliefs and behaviors which align with who we are today.

Healing Emotions Around Money

Money has remained in shadow for so long that when we consciously bring it into the light and simply acknowledge the darkness, shame, and fear that we have around money, we begin to transform our old patterns. Being in denial, obsession, or resistance with any of our patterns, keeps them firmly in place. If you doubt this, observe your friends’ money patterns. If they are in denial, obsession, or resistance, don’’t their patterns stay in place?

Discovering and Balancing Your Financial Archetype

Balance

Your life experiences caused you to develop certain financial beliefs and habits and to avoid others. We have noticed that, although the details of people’s behaviors and problems are unique, there are great similarities among certain groups of people. We’ve created some broad definitions of these groups, or archetypes, so that people can learn from others who have gone through similar experiences. The value of defining these archetypes is that they give us a basis for understanding how we came to have our current financial life, and practices to pursue in order to create the financial life we most want.

Living an Authentic Money Life

When we gain awareness of the truth of our conditioning, we are naturally compelled to increase our resonance with what we really want in our lives and to create an authentic money life for ourselves.

A Living Example— – Healing the “Money is Difficult” Belief

Many of us have been conditioned to believe that money is difficult. As we understand our ancestral patterns and our archetypal money tendencies, we learn how to balance this tendency and create some spaciousness within which to create a paradigm shift in our lives. For me (Spencer), the thought that money is difficult began to shift at the level of the mind. Then I noticed that every cell in my body began to respond. Changing our beliefs will actually create new neural pathways in the brain. Take a moment to say “money is difficult” and notice how you feel. Now say “I have all the money I need at all times” and notice how you feel. Imagine the life you would live from these disparate messages. Which do you choose?

This is about healing and undoing the old programming so that we can uncover our own path towards financial wellness, generosity, and prosperity consciousness. Unfortunately, so many of us have been living the lives of our ancestors despite our best efforts not to continue this conditioning. Now, you can use revolutionary tools to birth a new relationship to money that actually nourishes our spirits and allows us to live gracefully, mindfully, joyously, and abundantly on this planet.

First, become aware of how your ancestors handled money. Start noticing the connections between your lineage, your childhood, and your current adult way of being around money. After watching the video, take time to write down answers to the following questions and/or discuss with your money ally.

• How did they earn it?

• How did they spend it?

• Save it?

• Invest it?

• Worry about it?

• Talk about it?

• Were they free with it?

• Generous?

• Careless?

• Frugal?

What are your own money shadows in your life today? HINT:

These are your money thoughts and behaviors that keep you from absolute bliss and abundance in your life and that you don’’t want others to know about.

To continue healing your ancestral money patterns:

1) Read and do the exercise on your “Family’s Money Mantras.”

2) Make the “Money Breath” a daily practice.

Family Money Mantras

Let’s begin by recalling the favorite money aphorisms or pieces of wisdom that our parents and grandparents delivered with seemingly benign purpose. What did they tend to say repeatedly about money or their relationship to money? When you are feeling money stress or worry, what mantras from your family seem to be causing that stress or worry?

For example, whenever I [Spencer Sherman] take a day off at the beach or do anything that can’t be measured in dollars, I hear my father’s voice say “money is the only thing that will give you security,– count your bank balance.” Often when I’’m shopping, I hear my mother’s voice say “We can’’t afford it,” and then I hear the opposite voice of my maternal grandfather say “Just go for it anyway.” No wonder we’’re so confused about money.

Write down the first mantras that come to mind for each of the following family members (it’’s ok that some might be blank):

• My father’’s money mantra was:

• My mother’’s money mantra was:

• My maternal grandfather’’s money mantra was:

• My paternal grandfather’’s money mantra was:

• My maternal grandmother’s money mantra was:

• My paternal grandmother’’s money mantra was:

• The cultural money mantras I heard from TV, books, religion, etc. were:

Ask yourself these questions and write down your answers. Or even better, get together with your financial ally and ask each other these questions (writing down this information is key to increasing your awareness, tracking your progress, and producing the largest money breakthroughs during the 8-week course):

• How does your current money life reflect these mantras?

• What are your predominant money fantasies or worries?

• How do you feel about spending money within your means (or not)?

• How is your spending in alignment with your spiritual and inner values? How is it not?

• Do you save money? If so, is it done in a way that reflects a sense of spaciousness and belief in your future, or not?

• Do you invest money? If so, what feelings do you experience around investing? Do you invest with a sense of desperation to hit a home run?

• Do your investments reflect your values, or not? If yes, how?

• Do you earn money with ease or effort? Describe.

• Do you earn money in ways that are consistent with your values?

• Do you borrow money with ease or stress? Describe.

• Do you truthfully communicate about money with your partner, friends, children, and colleagues? Do you honor your boundaries?

• Do you wisely and purposefully give money away?

• In general, do you radiate a consciousness of generosity and prosperity or one of scarcity and fear?

• Do you see any parallels between your ancestral money patterns and your own?

The Money Breath Meditation

money karma meditation

Our money thoughts happen in a nanosecond. We fear scarcity in one moment and fantasize about getting rich in the next we hate money, then we see money as energy, and then we feel resigned that our money lives or relationship to money will never change.

Perhaps you’’re saying to yourself “I’’m the product of my ancestral money lineage and there’s a family history of pain, difficulty, scarcity, bad money decisions, or just ignoring money altogether.” The purpose of the money breath is to slow us down whenever a money thought or money interaction occurs. Slowing down allows us to create enough spaciousness for us to see the truth, access our intuition, and see the higher path to take in this moment.

A pause of even one nanosecond around a fearful money thought can mean the difference between despair and joy, scarcity consciousness and abundance, stress and peace.

This simple breath exercise can be a powerful tool for overcoming money madness, which I define as any irrational or impulsive habitual money behavior that does not serve us. Once you are familiar with the exercise, skip the first part and you can use it in your daily life at any moment: while shopping, while doing your taxes, before or during a job interview or sales meeting. You can shift from fear to peace.

Part 1

Notice:

• How do you feel physically? Tense, relaxed, energized, tired?

• What is your posture like? Slumped? Rigid? Relaxed?

• How busy is your mind? Racing? Full of thoughts? Quiet? Calm?

• Can you feel your breath moving in your body? Where?

• What is your mood like right now?

• What is your level of wanting to “do or change” something? Low, medium, high?

Important: Commit to giving full permission to be as you are without any attempt to correct, change, or better yourself in this moment.

• Feel your feet on the floor.

• Press down lightly on the floor with your feet and then release.

• Notice the places where you make contact with the chair.

• Are you trying to hold yourself up?

• Relax your muscles and let yourself be held, without collapsing.

• Allow your full weight to be carried by the chair and the floor.

Now bring your attention to your breath.

Where do you feel the physical sensation of your breath? As it moves through your nose, mouth, throat? Do you notice your chest, ribcage or belly moving when you breathe? Sense your breath between your shoulder blades and feel your spine responding to the breath.

Now notice the cycle of your breath: the inhale, the exhale, a pause, and then the next inhale, etc. Notice which is longer, your inhale or your exhale.

breathe

 Part II

Take a deep breath. Inhale through the nose and let your belly, rib cage and chest expand as you fill your lungs with air. One, two, three seconds.

At the top of the inhalation, lungs filled, pause for one second. Now exhale, letting your breath out easily through your open mouth for six seconds–twice as long as your inhale. At the bottom of the exhale, say to yourself, aloud if you can: “May my money wisdom increase.”

Repeat 2-3 times, then rest. Notice how you feel now–without having to change or do anything. Just be for a moment.

How to use the money breath in your daily life:

The aim of the money breath is to interrupt our automatic or impulsive money responses, and create a gap in our thinking that wisdom can fill.

I invite you to do the money breath throughout your day, whenever you think about money (listening to the financial news, for example) or are involved in a money transaction–whether it’s balancing your checkbook, rebalancing your investment portfolio, shopping in a store or online, paying for services, making a donation, etc.

I especially recommend doing the money breath any time an emotion around money is triggered— whether it’s fear, anxiety, greed, resignation, envy, ambition, or the need to win. This reactive state causes an adrenaline rush in the body. That, in turn, constricts your blood flow, speeding up your breathing, and makes your breath more shallow. Shallow breathing means that less oxygen gets to the brain; less oxygen to the brain means the brain doesn’t work as well as it can or should.

Doing the Money Breath burns off the excess adrenaline your irrational money behavior or money madness has prompted. It relaxes the blood flow and deepens your breathing so that more oxygen gets to the brain. You will think more creatively and clearly. You will replace your money madness with money wisdom. Psychologically, you’re bringing in your adult to care for your inner child. That inner child strained to breathe during money situations long ago, and now we have the ability to infuse that child with oxygen so that he or she feels safe enough to allow our adult wisdom to lead and make decisions instead of the scared child.

How the Money Breath works: You’’ve just learned how to slow down your whole system. On a physical level this increases oxygen and blood supply to your brain and all your cells. This actually increases the likelihood that you’ll be able to access the best source of information, namely YOU. When you ask for your money wisdom to increase, you affirm your own innate ability to transform your relationship with money regardless of how much money you have. You are calling your own money wisdom forward which has been blocked by impulsivity and old habits. The breath helps to open the channels of wisdom and clarity.

May your money wisdom increase throughout your week!
