No-Bake Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Squares (Low-Carb)

A SUGAR-FREE DESSERT RECIPE FOR ALL OCCASIONS   Not everyone can enjoy sugar-laced treats especially when there is a holiday such as a Birthday, Christmas, Easter and even Valentine’s Day. There are however some amazing sugar-free peanut butter squares that I want to share with you today that I adapted from a recipe I found online. My wife no longer consumes sugar and with Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to surprise her with something sweet that I knew she would love. She’s a peanut butter enthusiast even though I’m not the biggest fan I must say that these sugar-free peanut butter squares are pretty amazing. It’s important that you buy unsweetened, no-salt peanut butter for the recipe. Peanut butter traditionally has quite a bit of sugar so make sure you read the labels carefully. How much sugar is in peanut butter? Even though your sugar-free peanut butter is only crushed nuts you will still have 1 gram of natural sugar per tablespoon (15g) and 3 grams of carbohydrate. If you can buy organic peanut butter that is unsweetened and just crushed peanuts…even better. You’ll pay around $5-6 a jar. The coconut oil we use is Grace premium virgin coconut […]

These little beauties packed with flavour are the perfect party food or starters for a dinner party and they won’t cost you a fortune like other appetizers will.

Ketogenic recipes for low-carb diets are what we are testing out these days although we tend to change them to suit my wife’s tastes. She is a huge fan of spices but since eating bacon is a big deal on the Atkins low-carb diet she no longer uses salt at all.

3 Ways You Can Have A Food Shopping List With Variety And Save Money : The Grocery Game Challenge #3 Nov 16-22, 2015

FOOD DOESN’T HAVE TO BE BORING   Having the same weekly food shopping list when we grocery shop is a part of our past. We’ve learned that we really don’t like eating olives every day if we don’t have to. These days we have plenty of variety in our diet and we owe it all to our grocery budget and a few other motivations that everyone should be aware of. I think most people buy the same foods out of habit because there’s no method to the madness of consistency in the kitchen especially if you have a busy schedule. Last week fellow personal finance blogger at Budget Blonde Catherine who is an amazing saver left the comment below on my blog post. Her words had me wondering if others create the same food shopping list every week because it’s cheaper on the grocery budget. I also considered that some people may want the same foods each week because they have recipes in mind that they’ve done over and over which saves time and in their opinion, money. I love to have some variety in my diet, but I’ve found that the more variety I seek the more money I […]
