REAL food e-book give away

It's give-away time. I know you are all looking at how to better your health in the new year. I have found a great resource called Nourish MD. Their facebook page is wonderful and they continually link fabulous resources to all things healthy! Nourish MD takes you through a step by step change to clean up your "dietary" life. You can find that info on the sidebar of their main page at any time. They also blog on many topics.

Now on to the COOKBOOKS. Ya'll know I 'heart' cookbooks. E-Cookbooks are no exception. You can find all of them here. At this moment they are each $9.95 but they continually have "package" deals. They do include eggs, dairy and wheat but most of the recipes are very adaptable to gfcf. I have many favorites that I make from them. If you subscribe to their Facebook page you will keep up to date on the sales.

I have written a review of them before and you can find that here. They are chock full of ideas and recipes to eat REAL food. I am pretty good about eating real. The other night I tossed some taquitos from Trader Joes in the oven. We are gluten, casein and soy free... and this product was pretty 'clean' but I paid for it. I felt terrible the next day and I just knew that was what it was. The folks at Nourish MD give all sorts of great tips about prepping food and making step by step changes to change your life! Angelle also has a ton of resources that you can read about including a 20 minute coaching call for $10. That is a STEAL.

So, how can you win a REAL food e-book that is written by Nourish MD?? It is simple. Leave a comment for EACH item that you do below.

mmmmmmmm.... BEST NO BAKES!!!!!!

My friend 'Tam" gave me this recipe and we made them yesterday.

Melt 1 stick margarine with 2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup milk substitute on the stove until boiling and boil for about 1 minutes. (I cut the sugar to 1.5 cups and will do closer to 1 cup next time.)

Put 3 cups oatmeal, 4 TBS peanut butter, 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 TBS vanilla in a large bowl. (I used crunch almond butter and put a dash of salt in with this mixture.)

Pour the hot mixture onto the oats mixture. I had waited approximately 5-10 minutes after I took it off the burner because we were doing this as an RDI exercise and I wanted to pour it into a plastic container I had.

The hot liquid melts the chocolate as you mix it up. Then drop spoonfuls onto waxed paper. (I used a silpat.) Put in the fridge and 30-60 minutes later- enjoy.

I used Trader Joe Semisweet chocolate chips which are milk free.
