Since today is a low carb day we can’t eat anything that is high in carbs. So again we decided to take a dessert recipe from this guy on Youtube. You can check him out using this link http://www.youtube.com/user/leanbodylifestyle.

So the ingredients are pretty easy to get (once you’re into bodybuilding etc)
