Lean Holiday Treat


The holidays are almost here, and sweets are everywhere. If you’re like me and want to maintain a lean physique through the holiday season, you may find it hard sometimes because everyone around you is munching on something yummy that doesn’t fit the diet. If you’re in need of something tasty with a real crunch that won’t have sugar calories, try these sweet treats. They’re easy and quick to make.

What you need: low-sodium rice cakes, virgin coconut oil, nonsugar sweetener, powdered cinnamon.

Take 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil, and spread it evenly over two rice cakes.

Take 1/2 a single packet of sweetener, and dust it over the rice cakes.

Lightly sprinkle cinnamon over the rice cakes, and heat them for 45 seconds in a microwave.

I’m telling you, these are  super yummy, give you great fat from the coconut oil and are perfect for the season with the cinnamon. Here’s to staying lean! Happy holidays.
