Does this sound familiar? You WANT to eat healthy, but you’ll be hit by an attack of the munchies and your best intentions go right out the window? Well, here’s some good news…
From The Desk Of Carolyn Hansen (Healthy Snack Expert & Fitness Professional)
Between my life and my career, I’m constantly on the go. And although I always knew I should be eating healthy, it was just far too easy to drive up to the clown’s mouth and order a bag full of fat and a side of mega calories. But one day I looked in the mirror and I wasn’t happy at who was looking back at me.
At first I panicked. I’m smart enough to know that the secret to weight control is having an active lifestyle and consuming less calories than you burn. Well, I certainly was active, but the calorie part of the equation was working against me.
Determined to get those pounds off that I had gained, I started packing celery, carrots and rice cakes for my lunch every day. Let me tell you, it wasn’t too long before I was sneaking back to the drive-thru to get my french fry fix.
One day I was crying on a co-worker’s shoulder about how I was starting to feel like a rabbit instead of a woman, when she said “Relax, have some White Chocolate Gogi Fudge.” “Yeah, right,” I said. “You’re some friend tempting me with junk food.”
What She Said Next Stopped Me In My Tracks
“Honey, this is low calorie food. I’m not kidding.” I took a bite and, like the leading lady in a 1930’s film, I almost swooned. That was some fine-tasting fudge. I’ll tell you that.
Turns out that she had received the recipe from a friend of hers who was into health and nutrition. But, like most of us, she had a bit of a sweet tooth. Instead of undoing all the good things she had done each day to take care of her body, she created a fudge recipe that was actually healthy. “Hmm,” that got me to wondering…
If there was a recipe for healthy, low calorie fudge that tasted this good, what else was out there that I was missing?
I became a woman on a mission. I started tapping into my fitness network and, believe it or not, I discovered that there were plenty of good-tasting, low calorie, sugar and chemical-free 100% healthy recipes for things I would have never imagined.
But Before I Go Into All That, Let Me Tell You Why I Am Uniquely Qualified To Reveal My Secret Recipes
My name is Carolyn Hansen. I’m a former National Champion Bodybuilder, a health and fitness author, and a co-owner of two health clubs in New Zealand. I rub shoulders with people who live, breathe and eat fitness. Sadly, despite my background, I was often tempted to eat things that I knew I shouldn’t. You probably are too, right?
And it’s because I move around so freely in the health and fitness circles that I was particularly astounded to discover how many healthy home-made snack recipes were floating around out there.
When I started asking my friends why I hadn’t heard of half of the stuff I was discovering, they simply said “we figured you already knew.”
After I finished my healthy home-made snack food investigation, I narrowed down my recipe list to the Top 100 Healthy Raw Snacks and Treats, and put them all in an easy-to-follow recipe book.
These are the perfect recipes for woman, men, and children too. They are simple to make, don’t take very much time. This means you can have delicious and nutritious snacks headed towards your mouth any time you want them.
And remember — I’m NOT talking about rabbit food here!
