Add almond flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking soda, and spices to a medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined and set aside.
Cream butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer, 1-2 minutes. Add in sweetener and molasses (optional), and continue to cream until light and fluffy (8-10 minutes).
Add in egg, mixing until just incorporated. The mixture will appear slightly 'broken' (i.e. not thoroughly smooth).
With your mixer on low, add in half of your flour mixture- mixing until just incorporated. Mix in the rest. Wrap cookie dough with cling film (saran wrap) and refrigerate overnight (much preferred). But if in a pickle, 3 hours will do.
Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a baking mat.
Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and cut out the shapes. Note that the thickness will determine much of the texture: thinner cookies will be much crispier, while a thick dough (particularly if under-baked) will yield a softer one. Place shaped cookies on the prepared baking tray and place in the freezer for 10 minutes prior to baking.
Bake for 10-20 minutes, until fully golden. Note that I found baking time varies a lot here, depending on the thickness and size of the cookies. So just keep an eye out for them, and note that if you like them crisp you'll want to push the baking time as much as possible (until deep golden).
Allow cooling for ten minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Allow cooling completely, as they'll continue to crunch up (can take a few hours). Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Note that these keto gingerbread cookies are even better the next day after the spices have had some time to mingle. And also (for some inexplicable reason), the sweetness also intensifies the day after.

The 3-Day Refresh Cleanse came out last week, and I am sure you are all wondering what a day of meals would look like if you were to do this cleanse. I have decided to put this post together so that I can simply show you how the cleanse will go day by day. Day 1- (Upon waking drink 8-10 oz. of filtered water.) Breakfast(within 1 hour of waking): Shakeology blended in 1 1/4 cups filtered water. Plus 1 serving from the fruit list. I chose half of a banana and actually added it into my shake. I added ice, and cinnamon which is on the guilt-free flavorings list that they provide us. I made it the same way all 3 days. Optional: Morning Tea (at least one hour after breakfast) 1 cup unsweetened herbal or green tea. (stevia sweetener allowed) I chose not to do this because I was fine drinking my water. Mid-Morning(at least 1 hour after morning tea): Fiber Sweep (digestive health drink) mixed in 1 cup filtered water. The first day I did not add enough

Today I posted the picture above advertising for an upcoming challenge group and somebody sent me a message asking, "Can your body really change that much in 60 days??". I gave it some thought, and am here to answer this question for you. When I started my first 90 day fitness challenge I honestly believed in my heart and soul that after 90 days I would have this amazing transformation and be done with it. I thought all it would take was the 90 days and I would never have to do anything ever again. Sadly, I was wrong...but not sadly because it ended up being the best thing that every happened in my life. The good news is that my initial answer to the question asked of me is, Yes! Some people have that natural body type that when they make the changes necessary can transform completely in 60 or 90 days. The bad news is, I did not have that body type. Did I get to my final goal in my first 90 day challenge ? No. Wait a minute though...there is more good news! I may no
