Seductive Peanut Butter Protein Cookies (Low-Carb, Sugar-Free)

TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE WHEN BAKING THESE PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN COOKIES ESPECIALLY WHEN YOUR SWEET TOOTH IS WAITING.   Do you know that cookie that you just can’t stop eating because it keeps calling your name? Now you know why I called these Seductive Peanut Butter Protein Cookies. Not only are they super easy and quick to make but they are sugar-free and low-carb friendly. I’m always working with Mrs. CBB in the kitchen to create new low-carb treats that we can both enjoy. I’m a hard-core sugar boy who likes something sweet just about every day. Once in a while I don’t mind dipping into the wife’s stash of desserts especially if I don’t have anything prepared for myself. I know we’ve shared lots of low-carb dishes on CBB lately but don’t get scared off from enjoying these recipes in your life. They are delicious, full of flavour and won’t make you feel like you’ve just eaten an entire pizza to yourself once you’re done a meal. You know that heavy tummy feeling I’m talking about. Protein Peanut Butter Cookies>> Don’t knock em’ until you try them. Most often we don’t even tell our friends what they are […]

Cream of Asparagus Soup with Asiago Cheese (Low-Carb) (Gluten-Free)

MAKING A POT OF HOMEMADE ASPARAGUS SOUP DOESN’T GET ANY EASIER.   Although we enjoy broth and tomato based soups another famous soup we make in the CBB kitchen is our Cream of Asparagus Soup. Not only is it low-carb and gluten-free it’s extremely easy to make, budget-friendly and brings home the flavours of Ontario produce when available. During early-mid June if you love to forage you can find wild organic asparagus growing in ditches around farmers fields preferably that grow and sell asparagus. Mrs. CBB grew up with her dad who loves to forage still to this day. Over the years since she was a small child she’s foraged for wild asparagus, wild mushrooms, wild berries and plenty of other free wild edibles. I’ve been introduced to the foraging life quite a few times and it’s amazing what grows and is hidden in the forests, ditches and tall grasses. I won’t get into the specifics of wild asparagus picking but Mrs. CBB found Crystal over at Whole Fed Homestead who offers a detailed blog post about How To Hunt and Forage for Asparagus. Mrs. CBB says that reading her post brings back lots of memories because this was exactly […]

Budget Smarts: Eating Right for a healthy life

HEALTHY OPTIONS MADE EASY   Having budget smarts doesn’t mean you have to have lots of money in the bank all it means is that you are doing whatever it takes to provide for yourself the best way you can while spending less than you earn along the way. Whether you are wanting to lose, gain or maintain weight, increase your energy or simply just live a healthy life, making good choices when it comes to the foods you eat is important. Healthy eating may be expensive so they say, but it doesn’t have to be. Even though I love my vegetables, I have to admit that making healthy choices when it comes to food is something I have not always been the best at and if you ask my mom she will tell you (as she tells me often) that she thinks I don’t eat enough. I sit down every night and have dinner with my kids but during the day when I am constantly on-the-go eating seems to sometimes be easily forgotten. These last few months I have been doing some research trying to improve my eating habits as well as eating more often. I thought I would […]
