Pumpkin Cookie Calories

Hi guys!  So, I can’t believe we forgot to mention the calories in yesterday’s Pumpkin Cookie video.  I guess all things happen for a reason…this gives me a quick minute to talk about gluten/dairy free desserts.  I know so many people that think gluten/dairy free desserts are more “healthy” than traditional desserts.  While I won’t get into that debate today, I do want to remind everyone that a dessert is a dessert.  Period. They are a once-in-a-while treat.  Around here at myFitspiration we love treats and want to bring you many different options for when you do indulge. 🙂 Our goal is to sneak in as many healthy ingredients as we can.

The Pumpkin cookies breakdown like this:  if you make 12 normal cookies they are around 170 calories each…if you make 24 mini cookies they breakdown to around 85 calories each.

Most of the calories are in the almond flour & the coconut oil.  These ingredients…although heavy calorie hitters…have great nutritional benefits in moderation (including a good amount of protein which is great for weight loss and curbing hunger).  If you are really wanting to lower the calories even more you can substitute 1/2 of the coconut oil with unsweetened applesauce. You can also experiment with different types of flours….there are so many gluten free options….even garbanzo bean flour!!

Hannah & I both love cooking & entertaining….stay tuned for more fun & healthy recipes!!

Let us know what you think!!

Talking Spray Tans

Happy Friday everybody!!!! Olivia and I are big fans of the spray tan. So, after a recent “spraying” we decided to give you a short rundown of why we do it and how it might help YOU. If you need that extra something for photos or a big summer event (or any season for that matter!) this might be of some help.

What do you think about tanning? Any special tips to help us all out? Comment away and have an awesome weekend!!!!

Inside Muse

Hello Everybody!!!!

Sorry we’ve been a little quiet…we have some VERY exciting projects in the works that you guys are going to love :).

A few weeks back we were invited to come to the Muse Apparel Showroom in Manhattan to check it out and try on dresses…of course we had  to bring you along! If you’ve seen our Fitness Cover for September Olivia was wearing one of their pieces and she also wore one at her homecoming reveal (think black dress on the yellow water taxi:). It was amazing and we had such a fantastic time trying on beautiful things and getting to know the staff there. Check out the video we made just for you all!!!

Special thanks to Muse for inviting us to their showroom to film the blog and for all of the generous additions to our wardrobe they have provided us.
