Have a Nice Easter Weekend...

Good Morning Friends,

Wow I DO look forward to the weekends now. Before all the days seemed the same when I didn't work. I have been on a waffle binge this whole week. It is just as easy and the same as making a muffin, but in a waffle maker instead. I think I like the texture much better.

This morning I made some cashew butter. When I buy nuts now, I always buy them RAW from the bins at Sprouts when I go there, and store them in ziplock baggies in the freezer. They stay fresh that way.

I put some frozen - RAW cashews on a cookie sheet and placed them in the oven at 300 degrees and asked Hubby to watch them and flip and shake them every 5 min until they are done while I took a quick shower.

He comes in after 5  or so minutes and says "how do I know if they are done?" I said you can tell, they start to smell real good and DON'T let them burn please.

So when I was done, they were perfect and I put them in the food processor and added about 12 drops of vanilla stevia and a dash of sea salt and about 1 tbsp of macadamia nut oil to soften.
Last night Hubby and I went to this restaurant called The Heights and had some Pinot Noir wine and a spinach-cheese appetizer, (I had about 5 chips), and I had a Thai salad. It came with noodles that I pulled off and asked for the sesame-nut dressing on the side so I could drizzle it on. It was so good. And a few bites of a chocolate desert which he ate most of.

Well I gotta go. Got lost of stuff to do today. I wish you all a GREAT Easter weekend. And NO candy for you... Just the kids. LOL

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Have a Happy Easter! You really have made this lifestyle work for you! Awesome lady :)

  2. Has anyone tried Maple Grove Farms sugar free pancake and waffle mix? Came across this mix at netrition.com, and was wondering if it's ok on the BFC diet. Maybe Rosalie has seen it or knows about it. If anyone can check it out and post there comments . Happy Easter everyone.

  3. Happy Easter Rosalie and to all the wonderful ladies who read Rosalie's wonderful blog! Love your blog today as I have for the last 3 years. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
