Low Carb Macadamia Nut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I am just going to go ahead and call these what they really are: fat bomb cookies. Seriously. I did not set out to make fat bombs in cookie form but it just happened. And who am I to deny the outcome? I should have known. Macadamia nuts are so buttery and filling on their own, I should have known that making nut butter with them and then turning them into cookies would result in rich, buttery, satisfying treats.

Broccoli Stem Noodles with Sesame Ginger Dressing


Fresh low carb noodles made out of broccoli stalks! Paired with an Asian-inspired sesame-ginger dressing, it makes a wonderful healthy salad.

Low Carb Noodles made from broccoli stems, with a spicy ginger sesame dressing. A delicious salad or side dish.

This ridiculously easy and fresh recipe is brought to you by your local spiralizer. Egads, I love that thing. It really is a fun gadget to use and now everybody is turning everything into noodles. Got some zucchini? Spiralize it! Got some rutabaga? Spiralize it! Don’t know what to do with all that cucumber, or those turnips or radishes? Yup, you got it. Spiralize those suckers too. In fact, turing vegetables into noodles has become so popular, I am shocked that my auto-correct has yet to recognize the word “spiralize” as a proper verb. It keeps underlining it in red as I type, admonishing me in its own not-so-subtle way that my grammar and spelling leave something to be desired. Well I can guarantee you that within a few years, “spiralize” will be officially recognized by Mirriam-Webster as new word in the English language. This is a trend that isn’t going anywhere any time soon!
