Low Carb Pecan Sandies
My healthiefied low carb pacan sandies recipe.
“HEALTHIFIED” PECAN COOKIE
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl, cream the butter, and natural sweeteners. Cream for a few minutes until very fluffy. In a separate bowl mix together the pecan meal (I grind my own pecans with THIS food processor), coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add in the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth. Roll 2 TBS of dough into a ball in your hands (for uniform shape) onto a cookie sheet, then press down to they are about ¾ of an inch thick. Place cookies about 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for 17-20 minutes or until golden around the edges. Cool completely on the baking sheet before removing and enjoy! I keep mine in the freezer (for portion control!:) Makes 12 cookies.

MAXIMIZE YOUR METABOLISM
I first want to say that most authors don’t mind leaving un-updated information and books out there for purchase, but as for me, after doing lots of research of the new and exciting science of nutrition, I couldn’t sleep at night knowing that people were reading information that I put out there that wasn’t up to my current standards. If you have my last revision, it is still good, but I often wondered why a small amount of my clients and readers didn’t have the results I was looking for, so I decided to sit down and update Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism so everyone can succeed.

Testimony of the Day
“I purchased your 30 day accelerated meal plan package around November and have lost over 35 lbs. (I started cutting out carbs in August by reading your blog) My doctor had warned me about my weight gain so when I saw her in January for routine blood test she was ecstatic about my results, both in my blood numbers and my weight loss. Thank you so very much for all of your shared knowledge! Now, my naturally thin husband and kids are on board…BTW, hubby and 1 son have genetically high cholesterol, looking forward to their blood test results after 6 months on your program! My best friend and her family have purchased your assessment and books and are on their way to great health also! I praise God for you Maria! Thank you!” – Susan
