Pasta to Zucchini


My husband and I watched a documentary called Fat Head. Tom Naughton took the documentary Super Size Me to a whole new level. He wanted to prove that you can eat out like the guy from Super Size me and not gain weight. It was all about portion control when it came to carbs. Carbs has so much sugar in it that even if you're eating a 'diet' bread or cupcake there's still so much sugar in it.
Or something like that. My husband took more out of it. but I recommend watching it. It is eye opening. It's on Netflix watch instantly.

Anyway, so my husband and I are cutting out carbs for a little while. It's getting a little tough. I've been craving cupcakes and cookies. So I found these cookies when I was looking for some inspiration to do something without flour or with almond flour and right in front of my face were these cookies.
