There is no doubt that Ann Louise Gittleman is a visionary health expert and trendsetter. As shared in my previous blog “Book Review: The Fat Flush Plan by Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., C.N.S.,” her “Fat Flush Plan” is a groundbreaking low carb, detox diet program that has helped millions to rid themselves of excess weight fat and bloat, support their liver, clean up their lymph, and help to eliminate the appearance of their cellulite – for good as long as they maintain the “Lifestyle Eating Plan.”
I was one of those millions who have tried her diet and with great success. I dropped weight and lost what little cellulite I had. Now a follower of the “Lifestyle Eating Plan,” I thought I would share three of my favorite fast flush plan recipes. All include the Fat Flush Body Protein, a gluten and dairy-free protein powder – containing yellow pea protein, brown rice protein, vanilla bean extract, guar gum, inulin, and stevia – and one of the highest protein efficiency ratios available. The Fat Flush Body Protein contains 20 grams of protein per serving and will keep you sustained and energized for several hours, preventing cravings and temptations while stabilizing your blood sugar. The Blueberry Smoothie below is my absolute favorite and I make it daily. Even my daughter likes it!
Sweet Potato Casserole: Preheat oven to 325° F. Lightly coat a 9-inch square baking dish or pie plate with olive oil spray. Combine 2 medium sweet potatoes (peeled, cubed and cooked), 3 eggs, 1/2 c. water, 2 scoops Fat Flush Body Protein (vanilla), 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. cloves and 1/4 tsp. ginger in blender or food processor until well blended. Pour into baking dish or pie plate. Bake for about 30 minutes, until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Reheat at 250° F for about 15 minutes, or until warm. (Note: This dish may be made up to 3 days ahead; cover and refrigerate. Can also be frozen.) Serves 6.
Energy Bars: Heat oven to 300° F. Lightly coat bottom of a 9-inch baking dish with olive oil spray. In a small bowl, mix dry 1 c. nut flour (almond or hazelnut), 1/2 cup Fat Flush Body Protein (vanilla or chocolate) and 1 packet Stevia Plus (optional) together. Add 2 tbsp. unsweetened organic nut butter (almond or hazelnut) and 1/4 c. shredded apples or pears. Mash together with a fork until mixture can be formed into a ball. You may need to add a bit more fruit or nut butter for dough to hold together. Press firmly into the bottom of baking dish to ensure a densely packed bar which won’t crumble. Dough will come about half-way up pan.Lightly cut into 6 equal-sized bars. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool, cut again along scored lines. With a spatula, carefully remove from pan. Wrap bars individually; freeze until needed. Makes 6 bars.
Blueberry Smoothie: Combine 8 oz. cran-water (1oz. 100% unsweetened cranberry juice to 7 oz. of water), 1 scoop Fat Flush Body Protein (vanilla), 1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries, 1 tbsp. flaxseed oil, 1 tbsp. flax or chia seeds, and ice cubes (optional) in a blender until blend into smooth. Serves 1.
