Testimony of the Day
“Hi Maria, I had to show you my before and afters. My son had his 1 yr old photo shoot in the middle of August. I went ketogenic in the middle of October. We had a new photo shoot for Christmas done three months into my new life style. I am down 35lbs, almost 4 pant sizes and I feel amazing. Better yet your information in both your books and your blog, not to mention all the wonderful recipes in your cookbooks have given me so much confidence. I am not guilt ridden every time I eat. On top if everything else, I have introduced six women to the “healthified” way. Now they are seeing success with all the info you provide too. I know I have already thanked you once. But I just have to thank you again. You are one of the best things that has happened to me in 2013. So thanks again and I love you new keto-adapted book. It’s the best be far.
Thank you for all you do for your clients and thank you for everything you have done for me!” – Shauna
Migraines and Headaches
When clients come to me pleading for help eliminating migraines, I grin because to me it is an easy fix and I know they are going to feel wonderful soon. I have clients wanting me to help eliminate their chronic headaches and migraines all the time. I have lots of tips and tricks up my sleeve so when I started having headaches, I was puzzled. It all started when I decided to see if I were a candidate for LASIK eye surgery (which I am not). The clinic requires you to wear your glasses for a few days which my glasses are a bit weak, but I still wore them for the required time.
Once I heard the bad news that I was not a candidate since my eyes are just too bad (I’m a -11 prescription), I put my contacts back in. That day, my 3 year old was being a typical 3 year old and I blamed my headache on his behavior. But when the headaches continued for the next 3 days, I knew something was wrong. I went to the eye doctor and yep! I was over-prescribed. I was SO ecstatic to go down a 0.5 because that meant I could wear “night and day” contacts (the kind that you can wear for a month without taking out). They don’t make “night and day” in a -11 but they do in a -10.5!!!
Anyway, my point is, there are numerous nutrition reasons for headaches and migraines but one thing that is often over-looked is our eye sight. So when nothing else is working, get your eyes checked! First off, you must drink half your body weight in ounces. Dehydration and not enough quality salt are main causes of headaches. There are a few other major causes of severe headaches and migraines, and they all can be healed by a well-formulated keto-adapted diet as well as therapeutic doses of vitamins and minerals which you may be deficient in.

Who doesn’t love separating the Oreo’s and dipping them in milk? It is something that warms your heart to feel like a child again as you sit at the kitchen table and enjoy cookies and milk. So try this version instead of the scary trans-fats and high fructose corn syrup in real Oreo’s. What is in that filling anyway? Yikes.“Healthified” Oreo Recipe:
1/2 cup vanilla whey or egg white protein
3/4 cup peanut flour (or almond flour)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
1/4 cup Just Like Sugar (or Swerve)
1 tsp stevia glycerite
4 TBS cocoa powder
2-4 TBS water(just enough to hold dough together)Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, peanut/almond flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the water and sweetener to form a stiff dough. On a cookie sheet, place 1/4 inch balls 2 inches apart. Flatten balls into circles (I used a measuring cup). Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly browned. Cool in oven to crisp up.
8 oz cream cheese or coconut cream (if dairy allergy)
2 TBS unsweetened vanilla almond milk
4 TBS Just Like Sugar (or a few drops of stevia)Mix together and use to hold two chocolate cookies together.Serve with unsweetened vanilla almond milk! Dip and enjoy:) Makes 24 sandwich cookies. Makes 12 servings.
