Making Time for Low Calorie Sweet Treats

Paka Baking Mixes are low in calories, low in sugar and net carbs, and high in fiber and protein. Now you can satisfy your sweet tooth without any guilt!

There is no denying I have a major sweet tooth.  Some days brownies, cake, cookies, pie, cobbler, ice cream (you name it) is all I can think about.  I usually have enough self control to hold off, knowing I’d just be eating empty calories and carbs that would most likely go straight to my butt.  But sometimes my cravings just take over and I HAVE to have something.

Can I please just have a sweet treat without gaining a few pounds?

I’m here to tell you, the answer is yes!  Finally, I’m able to have my cake and eat it too!

With Paka Baking Mixes from Silver Fern, I can satisfy my sweet tooth without all the calories and carbs.  Paka Baking Mixes are low in calories and low in sugar/net carbs.  And not only that, but they’re high in protein and fiber, and are even gluten free.

Excuse me while I buy all the Paka Baking Mixes.  I mean the only other thing I can ask is for my sweet treats to arrive already baked!

They were quick and easy to make.  The only ingredients I added to the mix was water, eggs and butter, and it took just about 20 minutes to bake.  The brownies definitely have a cookies and cream taste, but still have that nice thick, moist, chewy brownie consistency.  Yum!

The best part about eating these brownies was not having to worry about adding unwanted calories and carbs to my diet.  The Cookies & Cream Brownie Bars have just 1g of sugar and only 70 calories per serving, plus 6g of fiber and 5g of protein!

You’re probably wondering what it is that makes Paka Baking Mixes sweet without having a lot of sugar.  It’s the very first ingredient listed on the box – Kakato.  Kakato is a natural, high fiber, low-cal-sweetener that contains natural soluble prebiotic fiber, tagatose, stevia extract, monk fruit extract, and has a natural sweet flavor.  Yeap, it’s that easy to get a sweet taste without all the sugar and you’re even adding some extra fiber into your diet.

I think I’m going to be trying the German Chocolate Brownies next.  If you can’t tell, I LOVE brownies, haha.

Now that you’re ready to join me in indulging our sweet cravings, visit Silver Fern and get your Paka Baking Mixes today!  Each box retails for $13.99, but when you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll receive 10% off your first order.

I know $13.99 seems a bit steep for a sweet treat, but considering the benefits of Paka Baking Mixes compared to store bought mixes, I have no problem spending a little extra to be able to satisfy my sweet tooth without gaining a few pounds in doing so.

I have been thinking about starting Daily Burn workouts for months now and every day that I had intentions of getting signed up, I got busy and distracted doing something else and never got it done.  That changes today!

I’ve just visited the Daily Burn website and have officially started my free 30 day trial.  If you’re not familiar with Daily Burn, it is basically an online hub that provides you with multiple different types of exercise programs and has tons of workout videos to follow along with.

The thing that was most appealing to me is that every day there is a new workout, so I’m never stuck doing the same exact routine over and over.  You don’t have to do the daily workout and can choose other existing videos, but I like having some variety in my workouts.

Not only does Daily Burn provide you with the workout videos, but you also have access to meal plans and recipes.  I can do all the workouts I want, but food is my biggest weakness.  I love having access to a meal plan so I don’t even have to think about what I’m going to eat because it’s already layed out for me.  And then having access to recipes that are healthy and tasty provides me with better tools for not only cooking for myself, but giving my family healthier meals as well.

So, today is my day 1 and it’s nothing but up from here.  I’m super excited to be getting started on a better me and I’m going into this with all the confidence in the world.  I’ll be back in a few weeks to let you know how it’s going.  Wish me luck!
