I'm a huge believer in dessert! I love healthy cooking, but sometimes a brownie made of black beans just doesn't cut it. For that reason, I follow the IIFYM diet. To help anyone else tracking their macros, I've included how many grams of carbs, protein, and fat in the foods listed below at the bottom of each post =)

IIFYM gives you the flexibility to have a donut if you want a donut, or a slice of cake, but keep in mind, while you have the flexibility to "cheat" for one meal/snack, that means for the rest of the day you will need to eat foods lower in fat and higher in protein in order to meat your Macro goals.

IIFYM is a great way to teach moderation when it comes to treats. Yes, you can have that, but watch your portion size and make sure to get all your Macros in so your body will still get the nutrition it needs.

This page is new. I just barely decided to shift this blog's focus to include more meal options. New recipes will be added every week. My goal is to add 2 new recipes each week so be sure to check back often!
