Pat each piece into a rectangle about 4-5 inches in diameter and stack the rectangles in desired order and press together, straightening the sides as much as possible, (use a flat kitchen implement to press against the sides to dstraighten) Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill at least one hour.

First, who does not like a good cookie? How about a tasty cookie that you can eat that is also not a threat to your waist line? That is unless you eat and entire batch, and maybe not even then…
I have heard it said that sugar free cookie, brownie and cake recipes do not translate well tasty snacks. Well, I beg to differ on this reason for a few reasons. First, I would never post a recipe that I do not enjoy. Next, I find that the sugar alcohol Erythitol which is sold under the brand name Swerve makes awesome desserts. While Swerve is about 60% as sweet as refined sugar, I find this to be a good thing as I actually find the sweetness of sugar to be rather sickening for me since I have been totally sugar free for well over a year now. What I love about desserts and treats made with Swerve is I can enjoy a cookie, brownie or slice of cake while never worrying about the sugar cravings which would come later if they had contained it. My blood sugar and insulin levels do not get out of whack and I find it much easier to use moderation when eating sweet treats made with Swerve.

NOTE: For a bit of house cleaning, I have a few things in work for you, some are already implemented, some are in work. I have a slight technical difficulty with the Calorie Calculator emailing the calorie numbers. This glitch is in work to be fixed. However, the rest of the functions are working most excellent.

I have placed a chart under the Calorie Calculator Pro menu which gives you caloric expenditures for several exercises. This is for your basic reference in order to have an idea of how many calories specific exercises and other activities burn. Improvements are in work.
In work, I am building a data base of calorie and macronutrients for food and drink. Currently, I have over 500 food and drink items compiled and am building a data base which I will be able to expand on over time in order to keep the blog updated with constantly with additional items. This will be up soon under it’s own menu tab.
