TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
Acne and swollen face testimony:“No make up. Hair not done. Today is day 12. Can you see the difference already? Bought most of the supplements you recommended. Almost finished reading book. I still have slight headache…kinda in neck behind ears. Inflammation disappearing lightening fast! I’m a bit achy, but lost 5lbs already. Goal is 50lbs. Just thought I owed you a shout out! …thank you.

When my dog, Teva, started losing her hair in patches, the first thing my veterinarian asked me was, “What are you feeding her?” Yes! What a good question! But you know what? I have never been asked that question at the doctor. Not once. Not even when I was a teenager suffering from IBS and acid reflux. I was just given a prescription. Nothing frustrates me more than getting a Band-Aid for the symptoms and not addressing the underlying cause of my issues which is why this job is so important to me. I want people to start feeling amazing, eliminate migraines, get off cholesterol lowering drugs, increase serotonin naturally, balance hormones to alleviate PMS; and do it with food and natural supplements. That is how I become the happy and healthy person I finally became after years of IBS, estrogen dominance and low moods.
In my “before” photo, I was 15 years old on a camping trip in Colorado. I already lost 12 pounds in this photo due to giardia (a parasite in the water), but you get the idea that at age 15 I was going down the wrong path. I decided enough was enough and I was like everyone and thought I needed a caloric deficit in order lose weight. So I took up running. My love for movement and exercise did not come easily for me. Sure, I liked to play as a kid, but when it came to phys-ed, let’s just say I wasn’t the first kid picked to be on any team. I still remember when I was in middle school, pacing back and forth in my parents’ yard and contemplating how to get out of the dreaded “mile run” that I had to do in phys-ed the next day. My anxiety about this was getting the best of me. I remember thinking how I could break my leg so I didn’t have to run, because if I were just to say that I was sick that day, the teacher would just make me run it the next week. I had to think of something more long term. Not wanting to actually break my leg, how could I fake a broken leg? All of these ridiculous ideas went through my head!
Eventually I started to like running and I ran at least 11 miles daily and was still 150 pounds (at 5’2). I often ran in the morning and then another run in the afternoon. I also started training for marathons. What gives? I ate Special K with skim milk for breakfast and dinner, carrots dipped in mustard and dried fruit for lunch and still was too heavy for my frame. Sure, once the weekend hit, I was so hungry on my fat-free diet, I ate junk. It was impossible to balance my neurotransmitters and control my cravings on a diet like that!
As I learned more about nutrition, neurotransmitters like serotonin and the ketogenic lifestyle, I started to switch my running to lifting weights and yoga. I do run a bit in the morning, but the neighbors all laugh at me because I am usually looking down at my phone answering emails! It is a relaxing run.
I’m telling you about my exercise regime because I want you to realize that it is NOT about calories in and calories out. Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity = doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, yet we all seem to be succumb to this lie. Our bodies are more complex that that. It isn’t a simple answer. Our hormones and mitochondria determine our fat loss and fat gain. I want you to know that you do not have to kill yourself at the gym in order to lose weight. I certainly was sick of running all the time and living off of diet food like fat-free pretzels; which, are higher on the glycemic index than jelly beans!
Anyway, my testimony is to help you feel encouraged and empowered to take control and understand that you deserve this and you do not have to live off of salads or live at the gym. If you are willing to take the time to prepare meals, even if they are slow cooker meals, you CAN do this! You deserve to feel amazing too!
I look forward to seeing all of your “after” photos!” – Maria

A winner will be picked April 1st and posted on Maria Mind Body Health fan page. Good Luck!
The cheese you use in this recipe will determine tasty and crispness. If you use a hard cheese like Parmesan, the shell will be crispy. I suggest a cheddar to go with the “apple” flavor, but the shell will be a little more chewy rather than crispy.
- 1 cup freshly grated hard cheese
- 4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 tsp Natural Sweetener
- 1 cup organic whipping cream
- 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
- 1/4 cup Natural Sweetener
- 1/2 tsp apple extract or other extract like English toffee/vanilla/almond/pistachio
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- CHOCOLATE SHAVINGS:
- 2 oz cocoa butter
- 1/3 cup Natural Sweetener
- 1 tsp vanilla or other extract like English toffee/almond/apple/pistachio
- Pinch Redmond Real salt
- MILK CHOCOLATE: add 1/4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
- DARK CHOCOLATE: add 1/2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Toss freshly grated cheese with cinnamon and natural sweetener.
- Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Grease with coconut oil spray. Place 3 TBS of cheese in a circle about 4 inches in diameter. Leave at least 2 inches in between each circle of cheese.
- Bake 4 to 5 minutes until they are golden brown.
- To mold them into a cannoli, have a <g class="gr_ gr_192 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling multiReplace" id="192" data-gr-id="192">1 inch</g> round object close to you. Once you remove the cookie sheet from the oven, move quickly and form the cheese around the round object. Allow <g class="gr_ gr_191 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" id="191" data-gr-id="191">to sit</g> for 10 minutes to cool. Once cool fill with filling.
- FILLING: Using a large bowl, combine the cold whipping cream, mascarpone cheese, natural sweetener and extract using an electric mixer on high. Beat until the mixture thickens.
- Once thickened, add the unsweetened almond milk slowly while mixing on low speed until combined and smooth.
- Refrigerate the mixture in a sealed container a few hours before using. It will keep well refrigerated for up to a week.
- CHOCOLATE SHAVINGS: Place cocoa butter in a double boiler and heat on medium high until fully melted (or <g class="gr_ gr_176 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" id="176" data-gr-id="176">microwave safe</g> bowl and heat on high for one minute, check and heat for 30 seconds until melted). Melting cocoa butter takes longer than traditional fats.
- Stir in natural sweetener.
- Stir in extract and salt and unsweetened baking chocolate.
- Pour chocolate into a candy mold of your desired liking. Place in freezer for 5 minutes or until set. Shave with a cheese grater for shavings.
- ASSEMBLY: When you are ready to fill, use a pastry bag or cut the corner of a Ziploc bag. Fill each cannoli with some extra filling sticking out of each end. Sprinkle ends with "healthified" chocolate shavings and enjoy!

“As a side note, many of the guys in my office are regularly referring to your blog, and we are planning a “keto potluck Friday” where everyone picks a recipe to sample. I am now trying to get my wife on-board to help with her fibro and migraines. Thank you for your effort and involvement!!” – Jim
My son Micah has a doll that he named Libby. He loves her very much and most days at nap time, I have to tell Libby to close her eyes and stop talking to Micah (he talks to her non-stop!). Anyway, Micah came up to me last week and told me it was Libby’s birthday in 3 days. So I decided to take him seriously and decided to throw a party!
I will blog the cake recipe in the future, but for now, here is a sneak peak of Libby’s party!
My favorite dessert recipe is blondies.
Ooh, those cannoli treats look amazing!
right now my favorite THM-style dessert is a basic peanut butter cookie.
Those look so good! I just made the cinnamon coffee cake and it is so good! The kids will be happy for breakfast 🙂
Oh that is so so sweet, happy birthday Libby. What a yummy looking cake 🙂
Oh that is so so sweet, happy birthday Libby. What a yummy looking cake 🙂 Your sons are adorable.
I like a lot of your healthified treats, thank you for the recipes. I think at the top of the list are the snickers ice cream bars!!
Maria, this is off topic for the giveaway but I have a question. I am reading your book about Metabolism, Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism. Anyway, I am “getting” how carbs are converting to fat. I am puzzled on how eating more healthy fats can make a body burn fat for fuel.
I have cut my carbs way!!!! back, as in only 1 grapefruit for fruit in the last 3 weeks; no sugar; getting carbs from green veggies. I haven’t lost a pound, I haven’t gained either. 🙂 but why is my body not using my fat? (I have plenty in store…….why doesn’t it know it’s there and use it? 🙂 )
I don’t consider myself obese, I could lose 25-30#, but nothing is happening. What am I missing? I have not eaten bads fats, refined foods in many years and have tried about everything to try and lose weight. I bought your plan on weight reduction and am taking most of the supplements that you recommend. I do see a practitioner that is more on the holistic side so I have had all the blood work panels done on thyroid, hormones etc….and I do take Armour. THere’s a piece missing here. Any ideas that you can think of??
You have to eliminate your fear of fats. The more fat you eat, the more satiated you are all day and the less you eat overall and the more weight you lose. Try to get 70-80% of calories from fat. I talk about this in more detail in my book Keto-Adapted. 🙂
Thanks for the reply…….. I should have noted I do eat a lot of good fats. I’ll try and up that, not a bad thing, I do love my fats!! 🙂 and I’ll see what happens. Maybe I just need to make more of your desserts! Yum. I am going to check out your book you mentioned too. Thanks. 🙂
I have made pumpkin bread, brownies, lemon bars, etc from your recipes. I think my favorite might be the lemon bars so far. I love the flavor of lemons!!!
My all time favorite treat is you chocolate chip cookies! They are the best! 🙂
I love anything with dark chocolate! Sure hope I win
Wow, those look so good! My favorite treat is probably your lemon bars, they are excellent! But, then again, all of your recipes are!! Thanks for the giveaway!
Your snicker bar ice cream bars, mint brownies, zucchini crisp, flour less chocolate cakes, oh and the mocha pudding cake from your slow cooker book! I can’t wait to make and try more recipes! Yum!
Absolutely love your recipes, they are different from all the ones online and so unique!
My favourite recipe from you would be the tiramisu cake pops!
Crossing my fingers!
I’ve never ever had one of those treats before. 🙂 COOL giveaway.
Gotta try this one.
Most treats are fine with me. No favorites necessarily.
Lemon bars 🙂
Maria, do you help children with Type 1 diabetes? I would like to gift your services to a friend but I wasn’t sure about this. Thank you!
My favorite dessert is chocolate cake!
Chocolste mousee! Anything chocolate
I LOVE your chocolate peanut butter eggs!!! I’m addicted. How many are safe to eat in one day? Do I need to limit them? Thanks.
Tiramisu and chocolate lave cake are my favorites. Delicious!
I like the cookie candy bar. I even just make the cookie part and dip in you carmel sauce. And what a good mama to make such a beautiful cake for Libby. Can’t wait to get the recipe.
My favorite is the pumpkin bread! Can’t wait to try this one too.
My favorite treat is the healthified pancakes.
I am so new to this way of eating that I don’t even have all the supplies yet to make a dessert. Still trying to find a couple more things. Hopefully today at Whole Food they will have the stevia glycerite so I can make your Low Carb Cookies.
Most recent sweet healthified treat were the chocolate chip cookies. Haven’t had one in forever and it was gooooood!
Maria, would you mind revealing your weight range now? I only ask because I am 5’2” as well and trying to gauge what is possible. I seem to stop losing at the 150 range as well even with exercise so am not trying to adopt keto practices.
Chocolate raspberry cheesecake!
I think that cannoli is going to be my new favorite!!
^now* trying, not not trying lol
Chocolate chip cookies..yuuummm
Love your tiramisu!
My favorite dessert recipe are your healthified twix!!! Yumm
My husband and I love your avocado brownies! They are so fudgy! yum!
I admit I don’t have a favorite treat! I love so many of them, but I am always partial to cinnamon rolls or anything chocolatey. Thank you so much for having a give away. They are always so exciting!
I enjoy making ice cream every weekend! Cookie dough please!
These are my favorite:
Love the healthified hamburger helper and my daughter does too!
Right now my husband and I are hooked on your chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes!!!
I made your Fat Bombs last night. They were the BOMB!
Chocolate brownies with chocolate chunks in them, yum.
I’ve loved everything I’ve made so far but if I have to pick one it would be the Turtle cheesecake. No, wait. The fudge cookies or the Ore “oh” cookies? No, maybe it’s the French macaroons? Ugh! All of the above.
Would love to win to be able to make your chocolate chip cookies!
Snickers ice cream but so many I ♡♡♡♡. Thanks for all u do!
My favorite treats are Chocolate chip cookies and of course fat bombs for a chocolate fix. yum !
My favorite dessert is your Healthy Almond Joy bars…!
Your cheese Danish are totally awesome!
I want to try the chocolate chip cookies! Are you sure that box is 60 bars and not 12 bars for $ 59 ?
I love your chocolate, punt butter cupcake remake. It is soooo delicious… The frozen snickers treat runs a close second
All of the desserts look amazing!
I like anything with chocolate, but right now I’m digging homemade ice cream!
Thanks Maria, for all your great healthy living advice and your extremely tasty recipes. They all have been a big help with controlling my Type 2 Diabetes.
Blondies are my favorite!
I love the blueberry granola and so does my son!
Peanut butter cookies!
My favorite healthifiedvrecipe (so far) are your chocolate chip cookies. I made them with your home made chocolate chip recipe, which was fantastic. I would love to try them with the chocoperfection bars, also. Thanks, Maria!
brownies made with avacados
My favorite treat so far is the almond joy bites! Though, admittedly, I just got started so I have yet to try out too many treats. I am dying to eat some fat bombs!
My kids loved the peanut butter protein balls!!
Chocolate Chip Cookies, fat bombs, and the zucchini chocolate cake.
I love anything chocolate – I like things that take a while to eat – it makes me feel fuller. If food goes too quickly, my mind thinks it’s still hungry (crazy, right?). So, I tend to search and make things that have more of a crunchy texture –
I love healthified chocolate chip cookies!
My family loves the Snickers Ice Cream. We make it every other week. I like the Oreos too.
Keto Fat Bombs!
I am new to keto. My husband has been on keto for 6 months eating nothing but bacon, chicken and ham. Now that I have started keto we have been working together to find things that aren’t just meat. Your website has been immensely helpful. Everything I have tried has been delicious I don’t think I could pick a favorite yet.
Really like the french silk pie and your brownies. These look delicious and really wanting to try the cookie dough cupcakes in the slow cooker book:)
I try to keep a batch of cream cheese brownies in the fridge for ” emergencies”! Love them! Tried the peanut butter donuts as muffins. Yum! I’m making cheesecake to take to a gathering tonight! I would love to win the chocoperfection bars!! I try to make chocolate for recipes, but I can never get the swerve to mix in so it is just bitter chocolate with crunchy spots of sweetener…not good!
Those cannolis might be my new favorite. They look delicious.
I have a daughter-in-law who has been suffering with POTS for 2 years. There aren’t too many doctors familiar with this. I think there are 2 specialists in CA. with a long waiting list to get in to see them. She has been tested for gluten allergy which she is, as well as allergic to dairy. She is only 26 & it breaks my heart to see her so week always ready to pass out at any moment. Her doctor has given her a note for her employer to be able to work from home. Most of the time she has to be laying down on account of dizziness & fast heart beats. Have you heard of this problem? Or treated anyone successfully with it? Doctors say there is no cure & they do not know what causes it.
Yes, I have helped clients with this condition before.
I LOVE cannolis! Thanks for another great recipe and wow that cake is GORGEOUS!
I love your fudge cookies! http://mariamindbodyhealth.com/fudge-cookies-and-prebiotics/
Made the me to fudge for the second time. This batch was amazing!
I don’t have a favorite treat yet because I haven’t tried choco bars!
Love the Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (Donuts)! These cannolis are so pretty! Your photography is awesome Maria. I’ll be glad when I can add nut flours to my diet so I can have those donuts for breakfast again!
I love the chocolate zucchini muffins made as donuts… great dark chocolate flavor! Thanks!
My favorite healthified treat is your Peanut butter, chocolate swirl ice cream. I bet the choco bars are GOOD in it, I’d LOVE to win them.
Maria, I saw a Hummingbird Cake yesterday at Festival Foods. It looked so good, and I am not a big cake eater. Do you have a recipe for a “Healthified” Hummingbird Cake? Also….I LOVE Coco Perfection bars 🙂
I love Maria’s flourless chocolate cake!
I love all your food!!
It’s usually the dessert I just made…
I love the story of Libby’s Birthday celebration! That cake looks amazing. I can not wait until that recipe hits your blog. Thanks for sharing, it put a smile on my face 🙂
Your “healthified” pancakes and tropical syrup are game changers! Seriously, breakfast, lunch or dinner…a serving fills me up and satisfies my sweet tooth. Thank you so much for everything you do!
Favorite healthified treat is a coconut tart!
I guess my favorite would be homemade chocolate peanut butter(almond butter) cups..full of good fats and chocolate!!!
So many to choose from, but I’ll say the Snickers ice cream treats and peanut butter chocolate eggs. I may have a different fave tomorrow though. 🙂
I need the proper ingredients before I can try this or others. I still have not been successful making most of your recipes even when following the directions perfectly. What almond flour do you prefer? I’ve seen you use a couple different brands that aren’t available in my area or very pricy. I’ll be making a trip to Whole Foods next week and need to get the essentials. Any recommendations?
My favorite treat is tiramisu!
My favorite healthy treat is a blueberry parfait with just blueberries, Greek yogurt, and chopped pecans:)
Happy bday Libby!! I love your snickers ice cream bars!
My favorite healthy treat are the cheesecakes!!! They’re AMAZING! All of them! I do have to say the cinnamon rolls are a close second 🙂 YUM
I have to say that my favorite is the chocolate lava cake and the pumpkin bread!
I haven’t tried too many sweet treats, yet. But, I recently made the chocolate mousse and it was so rich and delicious. I want to make the molten lava cakes next. I would love winning the cocoperfection bars because I know I would love them, but they are so expensive!
The Cinnabon Cheesecake is fantastic! Those cannoli’s look pretty good, though….
Chocolate cheesecake is always good….but these cannoli look awesome. I must make them soon…
I love the cream cheese brownies!
Canoli are one of my favorite childhood treats. I’m looking forward to trying this recipe. Otherwise, anything chocolate or cheesecake are for me.
My favorite is the peanut butter muffins. I make them constantly!
The Lemon Fat Bombs are my favorite. They are really hard to put down!
Cannoli would be a great healthified try.
Just getting started, so we haven’t had the chance to try very many recipes. Everything we have had has been great. I think that the fudge has been most definitely a favorite and satisfying both!
I love making the Healthified Christmas Cookies at any time. I skip the frosting, just the cookie is great for a special treat!
These look great! My son loves cannoli!
My favorite healthified treat is either ice cream or cookies – easy to make and they taste good!
I just made your chocolate cake with gananche. Yum!
I love the lemon curd and the teriyaki chicken wings
I am still working my way up to treats. I made cornbread and it was almost too sweet for me…. I LOVE chocolate though.
Hard to pick a favorite. Chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich, cheesecake.
I loooooooove your lemon bars!!!!! Yummmmmm!
Love your Molten Chocolate Cake.
I love the vanilla bean cheesecake! So delish!
I love the cheesecake. Looks like the picture which is always a triumph. Thank you for everything you do.
Your flourless chocolate cake is my favorite, hands down!!!!
I love your chocolate chip cookies with chocoperfection bars – or just a straight dark mint chocolate chocoperfection bar. Love them. They have helped stablized my bloodsugars as a type 1 diabetic as well as this way of eating. Thank you!!
YOU ARE ON NOTICE that Micah will want you to celebrate Libby’s “birthday” more than once a year. My boy has me celebrate Pooh Bear’s every three months or so. I’m guessing it’s like dog years for kids—time is irrelevant. Having to wait for a moment is “for ever” so I’m guessing every three months or so is like a year for them.
I just love homemade no-sugar reese’s peanut butter cups! Yum!
I love everything that I’ve been eating for the last 18 days on the accelerated plan but, my favorite so far has to be the delicious flour less chocolate torte I made last night! AMAZING!!! I love eating Healthified!
I’ve been enjoying eating with high fat (healthy fats), low carb lifestyle eating plan (Trim Healthy Mama), but have reached a point where I’m just not losing weight anymore – still have about 40 pounds to lose. I bought your Keto-Adapted book and found it really helpful; I was already familiar with quite a bit in your book from reading Trim Healthy Mama as well. I’m sure you’re asked this all the time, but is there a way to just purchase a 30-day meal plan with recipes? I’m willing to buy some more of your books to get recipes (maybe buying one book every 3-4 weeks), but I can’t come up with $250+ to purchase an entire set of videos, etc., just to get the 30-day meal plan. I’m thinking that this isn’t an option, but if not, I do hope you’ll consider it in the future for those who have already purchased Keto-Adapted and have read the book. I took really great notes while reading the book, but it still doesn’t give an outline on what a day-by-day plan looks like. It gives a few hints here and there, but doesn’t address a week of eating this way, etc. If this isn’t an appropriate place to ask this question, I apologize. 🙂 I saw that your “Contact” info. was only for scheduling consultations, and I didn’t see this addressed in your FAQ. Thank you for your weekly recipes. They are delicious! 🙂
Contact Craig with the Contact form. He can maybe work something out.
I wish I could tell you what mine is but I have yet to try your sweets recipes since I’ve been waiting on my swerve shipment for the past 2 1/2 wks!
Keto fudge! My sure-fire way to curb sweet cravings.
Need some choc to make the cannoli.
Avid all of your recipes are incredible!
I like everything I’ve tried so far! However, I’m particularly partial to the cinnamon coffee cake and other items similar to that!
Chocolate Chip Cookies and just tried an Angel Food Cake – it was delicious. Love chocoperfection bars too!
healthy cinnamon rolls 🙂
Tiramasu and anything with chocolate are my favorites. These cannoli look amazing!
My fav treat is the chocolate tart (found on wheat Belly)
Glazed breakfast cake! I loved making this in my slow cooker!
I’m in love with the Keto Fudge! Tonight I’m going to make the peanut butter cups.
Chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake!
I love the Cheesecake and the lemon bars!
I like the cheesecake!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dont’t think I have a favorite, but one would be peanutbutter cups or almost anything with chocolate, peanut butter, or coffee.
I love brownies and chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate ship cookies or cookie dough ice cream are my healthified favorites!
I make lots of treats from many low carb blogs. Hard to pick just one but fat bombs with butter or coconut oil and dark chocolate and almond butter have to be in the top 10 I think.
I am still waiting on my order of flour so I can make some bread. I miss it so much. I am loving your books.
Anything cheesecake related is my fav!
I love the crispy shell made with almond flour and cheese matched with the creamy goodness of pudding and cream! Yum! I’m a big fan of your custard and lemon curd recipes…I can eat those forever and be a happy healthy woman! To date my favorite snack are the goldfish cracker recipe. Love them with my lunch of soup and salad!
I love any dessert with pumpkin! I also love tiramisu.
Any kind of ice cream!!
Molten lava cake! Even my picky hubby lives it !
Thank you Maria for all that you do. My favorite treats are the chocolate mousse and the brownies made with avocado.
Just found your website and don’t yet have a favorite. Lots of “must try”, though.
Maria, how much Swerve for the filling?
Sorry, it is 1/4 cup. I fixed it above.
My favorite healthified desert is lava cake.
I love the nut and see granola on yogurt!
I love the molten chocolate cakes. Yum!
My favorite healthified desert is chocolate cheesecake!

It’s so difficult to choose, but my favorite are the snickerdoodle cookies!

Can’t wait to try this recipe! Looks amazing.
Cannoli are my favorite. I cannot wait to try this!

I’m just learning about you, this way of living an these recipes. I have not tried any of them but would love to win and test them;)
Favorite dessert is a hazelnut mousse cake…yumm so good
I can relate to your testimony. I have always USED exercise just to maintain my weight, and it does feel like I have to do it. Still, I’ve never been THIN. I almost can’t imagine losing any weight without it! I run, do strength training, yoga, videos, biking — I try to stay active, but at 47, my scale just seems completely stuck! Nothing “works” anymore, and I’d like to take off about 20 lbs. Low carb, sugar-free, and even, now, grain-free don’t seem to be doing the trick either. I eat fat, but I’m not good at keeping track of how much. I just can’t afford to buy any of your services right now, but I’d sure like to know what to do to budge these pounds. I’d like to feel the reward of all the work/thought/effort/$ I put into trying to keep this body healthy. After a couple of weeks of working hard and seeing/feeling no results, I feel like “what’s the use.” I may have a splurge at that point, but even my “splurges” would be dieting by most people’s standards. I’ll keep reading, and I’m going to try that egg plant french toast — even if it kills me! Thanks for all the technical info you include in your posts. I like having actual information, not just recipes, and the testimonies keep me hoping!
I like peanut butter and chocolate anything, mint and chocolate anything, coconut and chocolate anything, and caramel everything.
Oops, I commented on your Facebook page, not here. We all love your peanut butter chocolate chip mini muffins!
I love the Fat bombs (well, I really love everything so far!)
By the way, what kind of hard cheese do you use?
;yea what kind of cheese?
It says right above recipe. “The cheese you use in this recipe will determine tasty and crispness. If you use a hard cheese like Parmesan, the shell will be crispy. I suggest a cheddar to go with the “apple” flavor, but the shell will be a little more chewy rather than crispy.”
I love your Tiramisu recipe. Your first recipe I tried and my favorite so far!
Favorite dessert is lemon bars.
Keto fudge is my favorite right now.
keto fudge is awesome and guilt free!
Maria, we just bought your accelerated plan today. We see that we need to purchase the supplement recommendations also. My husband is on blood pressure meds. Does he need the heart health plan or the plain one?
I think I answered this in your private message. 🙂
I’ve started to write this post about six times and have changed my mind each time! Creme brûlée ranks right up there!
Another awesome giveaway, Thank you!! OK, fav dessert/treats…..Lemon Bars and ANYTHING Chocolate!! 🙂
Chocolate cheesecake! I sure hope to win! This chocoperfection bars are the best but so expensive:(, I tried making the bars myself but they don’t come out the same and they don’t have as much fiber
Chocolate torte is yummy, especially with a little cinnamon.
Keto fudge is on my list to try – I have a feeling it will quickly become my favorite.
My favorite is the chocolate chip cookies
Love the chocolate chip cookies & the lemon bars …. as well as lots of other recipes!
I enjoy making coconut flour protein brownies or muffins.
Beautiful food photography, by the way!
Brownies…hands down my favorite. Although in a close second are chocolate chip cookies.
I always have a double batch of blondies in my frig.
I look forward to reading your blog daily. Have quite a few of your books and I love each one. I have now “converted” 3 people to the “Maria way” they watched me over the past 2 months and thats all I needed to convince them that this is a way of life and a very good one.. thanks again .
oh and my favorite is cheesecake
I love the keto fuge and many others . Thank you for all of the yummy treats.

Maria, how do you feel about vitamin water zero (sweetened with stevia and erythritol? And what about gelatin?
I just ordered your slow cooker book, and can’t wait for all the recipes 🙂
Thanks, Maria! You are awesome, I’m so happy and grateful for your work!
My favorite healthified treats are actually crackers, but on the sweet side I’ll take your turtles.
You are so wonderful for all your work and support. Since I’ve been eating correctly I haven’t craved
a thing. You are a wealth of information and have something for everybody.
My doctor told me I’m like wine, I keep getting better the older I get. Wine, yuk.
Now that I had both knees replaced this last year I can walk without pain. In my 50’s and too young to be OLD. I’m totally off all Narcotics and anti-anxiety drugs (5yrs), which I was in a total funk and actually lost those years of my life. After a breakdown and being put in lockdown – it scared me straight. My family says they are glad I’m back. Thinking I was eating well, I couldn’t seem to drop the extra 50 pounds, 5 months now and I only have 15 to go to be back to the weight I was after a gastric bypass. I’m excited to see by my new lifestyle how much more I lose and better I look. This has been the first time in my life that I’ve been able to change my lifestyle so easily and I know for a fact it will last. I do keep getting better, I feel great and get lots of compliments.
Thanks to you and Dr. Wm Davis.
Awesome! Thank you!
All the desserts! One of my favorites of yours is the tiramisu, that is sooo good!
Can’t wait to try this recipe and would love to win the chocoPerfection bars. Just tried their mini mint dark chocolate chip bars and they are SO DELICIOUS!
I LOVE cannolis!!! So want to try this recipe when I can re-introduce dairy into my diet. Definitely holding onto this recipe for later!
I can not wait to try these canneloni. This used to be my favorite treat! Thank you so much for all that you do!
I meant cannoli. How embarassing.
Forgot to comment about a treat .. doing your plan right now I’d have to say my favorite is the keto fudge. I let it get nice and soft at room temp and then eat it with a spoon .. it’s like eating frosting! I so would use this on a cake or cupcakes as frosting!!
My favourite healthified treat right now is the healthified brownies. They were so delicious!! I kids love the healthified chocolate donuts! I can’t wait to try more recipes. Making the healthified spaghetti and meat balls tonight 🙂
Love your cheesecake and keto fudge!
I just made some lemon bars the other day…man those were good!!! Right now because I long for spring I am craving anything springy!!!
LOVE the chocolate chip cookies- MORE than regular choc chip cookies- go figure!!!
my favorite healthified treat used to be the fudgy brownies but right now i’m on a mini reeces muffins kick
I don’t do Facebook, so can’t enter your contest. Would love to win these bars, however where can I buy them at this price? I don’t see them for this price at your Amazon store.
Love your tortilla recipes!
As for desserts, we love the apple donuts…genius with the apple tea!
I love all of your recipes but tend to make the fat bombs the most.
My favorite is the pumpkin bread, I also do a lemon tart
My favorite “healthified” treat has to be Eclairs! Yum!
I love sweet treats! My favorites so far are your ice cream, fudge cookies, and french silk pie. All are AMAZING!!
Oh, I love your pancake recipe! And thank you for the giveaway chance!
My favorite “healthified” dessert is hands down the “healthified” fudge. SO YUMMY!!! A close second is the Shamrock Shake. It is such a simple base and I can make so many variations of it depending on my mood or my children’s mood. It could be breakfast or a treat. I love anything that pulls double duty!
Your chocolate chip cookies are my favorite.
I’ve just started making your dessert’s but to this point the “healthified” Twix is my fav!
Coconut flour cake donuts, bought a mini donut maker just for this recipe…..
I especially like you chocolate chip cookies…or anything chocolate that is “healthified”. Yum! 😉
I’ve just signed up for your blog, but the cannoli’s look wonderful and I am sure there are many more for me to try.
I love the ice cream…can’t wait for summer days!
we loved the lemon bars and we also just made lemon and cherry fat bombs this weekend. the amazing bread is in the oven right now!
and we just got a ice cream maker this weekend too so i can make my daughter some of those delicious looking ice cream recipes!!!
I love your website, books, recipes- everything! You have done an amazing job. We eat mostly your recipes now and feel amazing. The only thing we have found difficult to make is a lot of the desserts that use Swerve/erythritol/stevia. We live in Fiji and despite looking everywhere I cannot source a natural sweetener that does not have any other nasties added…. we are fortunate enough to have an abundance of fresh coconut products here so are blessed. I wonder if you have any suggestions for any alternatives to swerve/stevia/erythritol? I know that may be very hard to answer. I do find the fresh coconut cream here is very sweet so maybe we do not need to use any sweetener- but i´m guessing the recipe without the swerve would lack the body/texture that it gives to the dish. I have tried to purchase it online but no shipping out of the US or shipping prices to Fiji are through the roof. Your guidance would be much appreciated as the look of the desserts are just too tempting to ignore! Many thanks, Claire
Xylitol is another one. Yacon syrup. Also monk fruit extract. Not sure if this will help, but here is a list of places to get things in Australia.
Wonderful thank you! 🙂
Chocolate chip cookies!!!!
Anything with peanut butter and chocolate.
Love your new website! However I noticed that my links no longer work from my 30 day accelerated meal plan package that I purchased in the fall. I am finally ready to use it. 🙂 I think some of the recipes may have renamed them as well so now I am second guessing if I am making the right thing. During the first day it mentions making the protein buns but the ingredients listed and the ratio of eggs whites to protein powder don’t line up with anything on the blog. Help!
i love ice cream
Hard to choose just one but I will have to say your nutter butters 🙂
I’m putting this recipe on my “to do” list for tonight!
Chocolate swirl cheesecake, cinnamon buns and my daily dark chocolate fat bombs – I can’t choose. But after reading all these posts, I’ve got to try the choc chip cookies. So I could sure do well to win this contest 🙂
My favorite is your Turtle recipe. Absolutely delicious!
The cake part of Chocolate ganache cake…used for waffles!
Chocolate chip cookies. I can’t wait to try them with your healthified ice cream.
My favorite dessert recipe, is the coffee and cream cheesecake (low carb) that my wife makes! It’s fantastic! Not real sure where she got the recipe though. I try to get her to make it all the time, lol.
My favorite healthified treat is by far your chocolate chip cookies….made with ChocoPerfection bars of course….my whole family loves them including my husband and kids!!
Your Cheesecake recipe is amazing!!! One of my favs
Your peanut butter cups!
these look so yummy! I want to make the snickers ice cream bars too! thank you for all of the wonderful recipes and information you share.
I’ve been cooking your way since mid-January, 19 lbs down. Love your keto-adapted book as well! I started with Truvia until I realized you didn’t recommend it. Now I use swerve. It gives me a very intense cooling feeling on back of my tongue for a while and about an hour after consuming… time for bathroom. TMI, sorry everyone. What do you suggest I use in place to avoid this reaction. Liquid stevia? Thanks!
all of the desserts – thats part of my problem…
I love your awsome bread recipe with both the almond flour and coconut flour!
The Cannoli… By far. It’s my favorite normal dessert, so when I found your recipe I jumped for joy!! But I prefer your other shell recipe. Cheese seems kind of weird.
Right now it’s keto fudge but I’m looking forward to making some of your cookies!
Can’t wait to make these! They look delicious….:)
Firstly I am a big supporter, I have read your blog for year, purchased all your books, and even one your accelerated package and supplement package. All of which I am very happy with. I really wanted to pick your brain about a topic that might help my handicapped sister. How much do you know about metal toxicity and detoxification? Would love a blog about that or even a supplement package for purchase. Thanks for all you do!!
My favorite dessert is strawberries!
What a sweet mom!! 🙂
I would have to say the chocolate cake is always a winner! However, we were just talking about cannolis! Super excited to try this recipe!
Hands down, my favorite dessert is flan. The ease of preparation, the seemingly infinite variations, and always, the delicate flavor and texture win me over!
I am seriously bummed about your steady requirement to “like” you on Facebook, Maria, in order to enter any of your giveaways. I haven’t joined Facebook, nor am I likely to. But I have frequently sent friends links to your blogs. Thank you for the information you so generously give.
I have to tell you…. my favorite ‘healthified’ treat is a smoothie! Seems weird but, I was a vegetarian for 22 years. Then I went vegan raw. I was sucking all sorts of green liquids down. First thing in the morning I would throw all sorts of sugary fruit in the blender with water and either honey, sugar or agave! I never thought my smoothies were the cause of my midsection pudge and sluggish sleepy, behavior around 10ish. Just learning to alter my smoothies with berries, the proper protein, the right kind of sweetener and almond milk…WOW, what a difference! Whenever we would go to the local smoothie shoppes, I would always steer clear of the ‘dessert smoothies’! “So full of sugar and fat” I would announce (as if I knew what I was talking about!) Those smoothies were every bit as sugary as the regular fruit ones. And, at least the dessert ones has protein from nut butter. Chocoperfection truly is my chocolate choice! I’m not just saying that cause this is a contest! When I bit into the Milk one, I instantly get a rush of Easter as a child. They remind me of the solid chocolate bunnies I would find in my basket. I am amazed that I can eat this and stay healthy. They taste clean and don’t leave a weird taste in your mouth like some ‘healthy chocolate’! Thanks for this product! I am constantly serving in the 12 step chocolate program—-I am never more than 12 steps from my chocolate!
Thanks for all you do Maria
I have found the cakes have made the best transition to low-carb
Your shamrock shake has been a favorite lately, but love all of your stuff.
My favorite healthified dessert is Turtle Cheesecake! Its so yummy!
Hi Maria! I am new to your blog. Have been on Atkins for 7 months and lost 58 lbs. I am intrigued by your posts and have been following you on facebook and Pinterest for a few weeks. I like your approach to a keto diet and LOVE how you explain everything, it all makes so much more sense! I find myself following your way more and more, it sounds so much healthier! So far I have tried the Reuben enchiladas and Keto Fudge. I plan to try a lot more. I have missed chocolate and was eating the chocolates made from Maltitol until I read your post on it. I would love to try the Choco Perfection bars as a healthier alternative. So to answer your question, The Keto fudge 🙂
The cannoli ‘s look sooo good!! That’s what I want to try.
My favorite healthified dessert is your chocolate chip cookies!
I haven’t tried them yet but the nutella cupcakes look amazing!
Keto fudge, chocolate zucchini cake and pumpkin bread (I make muffins out of these and freeze them). I have loved every recipe of yours that I have tried. I have found I have to stay away from sweets, even using swerve and such, because they trigger carb cravings and dairy for the time being because my weight loss stalled. Weight is coming off again. 🙂
My favorite is your chocolate chip cookies! There are so many others I would like to try though!!
I am certain my favorite will be your Easter Cream Eggs (once you share your recipe 😉 )
Keto fudge & fat bombs, yum! I also love taking the extra lemon curd and just eating it by the spoonful to get more fat in my keto lifestyle. Thanks for your recipes and all you do to increase education, awareness, and benefits of a ketogenic diet.
My favorite “healthified” treat would have to be the cauliflower pizza’s!
I love the almond joy bites.
Your birthday tiramisu.
Really want to try the blizzard ice cream Thanks
Your chocolate chip cookies!
I cant say how many of your recipes I love but the cereals have changed my life and my kids who were cereal addicts. Thank God for your cereals!
I would have a hard time picking just one. Especially anything chocolate.
My favorite: the Cinnamon Rolls!
Lemon meringue pie on a flaky toffee crust! Thanks for the giveaway!
My favorite dessert is your cinnamon rolls 🙂 oh goodness they make me smile!!!
We made the healthified Angel food cake with lemon curd this past week… Oh MY GOODNESS!!! I can’t believe how yummy it is. Right now this is my favorite “healthified” treat. So, SO, SO Yummy!!!!!
Thanks again for all you do!
Love the fat bombs and chocolate chip cookies:)
Keto fudge and soooo many others…
I am looking forward to trying the cannoli recipe. I can’t imagine the hard cheese into a dessert shell…then again, I couldn’t imagine a lot of desserts I tried from your Sweets cookbook…that are awesome. We try to make something from it once a week. Last week were the fudge cookies that were unbelievably decadent. My girl brought some in her lunch and her classmates with their 100 cal packs and bags of chips were very impressed. Last night she made the Blondies We didn’t have pecans on hand, so she just went plain. They were so good. In addition, we were so impressed with ourselves bc we portioned them out to 16…had two each (bc they are a small square lol) and refrigerated the rest. I put a couple in her lunch today….oh, and packed a couple in my lunch too. 🙂 You probably don’t remember, but I’m the one with the 12 yr old daughter who wants to write to you to say she wants her Mom back. But over the past two weeks, there’s been a change at my house. She’s been interested and really taking to the “Maria” way. She doesn’t feel you’re a homewrecker anymore. I’m trying not to push bc I know once she sees how good she feels, she won’t want the bad stuff. I thought I was feeling good before, but seeing her do well….makes me feel even better. Thank you. PS. She plans to make the blondies again, cut back on the sweetener and add your caramel sauce. I imagine, if we won, we’d find plenty of things to do with the chocoperfection bars!
That is great! 🙂

I love Cannoli’s I am sure your version is much healthier than what I am accustomed to, I will have to try your recipe.
You know, the problem is that I read all these comments and think…”Oh, I forgot about that dessert…mmm, that one was great too…ooo I have to still try that one.” So clearly, I can not pick one. Tonight we make the fudge cookies.
My favorite is probably the candy turtles! Yum
My favorite healthified treat… all of them!! 🙂 Especially anything with cinnamon, yum!
Chocolate chip cookies
My favorite dessert is BROWNIES!!!!! My second favorite is POTS de CREME’

Love love your extreme chocolate cake!! It’ll be my birthday cake this year! 😀
Also, a question: I’ve been having a hard time finding flavor extracts that don’t contain propylene glycol. I’ve checked in your amazon store (p.s. the links to it in this post don’t seem to be working?), and many if not most of them do contain it. Especially the ones I’ve been looking for, like apple/banana/raspberry/strawberry etc. Any recommendations? Or do we sometimes just admit defeat and go with whatever’s available, propylene glycol or not?
My favorite healthified treat is brownies. I’m planning on making blondies soon!
PB Chocolate ice cream is my favorite.
Anything chocolate! ChocoPerfection can be chopped or melted for special treat paleo recipes. Another special treat is a piece of ChocoPerfection with a glass of wine!

I have been sharing your fab posts on FB and showing off my “The Art Of Healthy Eating -Kids” I have added your other books to my “wish list” on Amazon…got a birthday comin up in a month 🙂
Thank you for being such a super mom and sharing with us!
Making this filling now and just put in fridge, looks too runny at this point. Hoping the refrigeration will stiffen it up? Also noticed a lot less liquid in the peanut butter filling recipe so that’s why I’m a bit concerned it may not turn out.
It should solidify once cooled. If it still seems too runny, you can try adding a little more mascarpone. 🙂
Thanks but Im not sure more cheese will help, it’s pretty runny :(. I just tried using it after being in fridge 24hours and it was like a creamy soup. Wonder if I can use it in some shake or maybe a pancake? Flavor is great!
Let lime pie, sugar free with a non gluten crust is mine and my husband’s favorite go to dessert right now but we’re open to new ideas and recipes.:-)
I love the chocolate cream cheese fudge. Going to try these cannolis!
