The "Wheat Belly" is now a life-style way of eating for me, and I stay pretty close to the rules. The rules have paid off for me, and I've kept the weight off for over 19 months! I lost about 50 pounds overall, and actually got too small and had to increase my carbs to come back to today's 190 average weight. That's the ideal weight for me and I've dropped blood pressure and diabetes medications.
However, when holidays come along, I miss something sweet. I see family and friends indulging in pies, cakes, and other sweet things, and yes, it bothers me a little. So, I went searching for something to fill the "holiday spirit" gap.
I discovered Simple Mills products and have been enjoying their almond flour crackers, bread, and pancake mix. So, the natural thing to do was to try out their line of muffin mixes.
I decided on the Banana Muffin Mix. (Note: You can buy them on several sites, or at your local "fresh market or earth type store".)
I wanted a little extra in my holiday muffin, so I chopped up pecans, dark chocolate, and some frozen berries. It all worked perfectly in the mix and didn't require any more cooking time. They came out delicious!
I topped the muffins with some of the Simple Mills frosting, and that got me to where I wanted to be on Thanksgiving Day!
You've still got time, or try them for Christmas...the directions are easy and in 30 minutes you'll have your favorite muffin, iced, and ready to enjoy with the family.
