Hello and welcome to your new favorite cookbook! The ARIIX Clean Eating cookbook is an important part of the Slenderiiz™ program! Are you ready to achieve your goals and transform your life?

First, let me say this: There is no magic weight loss pill. Losing weight is complicated, and it’s not just about shedding pounds. It’s about shedding misconceptions about yourself, how you eat, how your body works and the way you live in this world. The Slenderiiz program is designed to give you the tools (like this fabulous cookbook) you need to truly make a lifestyle transformation that lasts — not some gimmicky diet that ends in 90 days.

A big part of this program is eating healthy and learning how to incorporate healthy choices into your everyday life, from on-the-go snacks, to cooking meals at home and eating out at restaurants. And now, for the first time in ARIIX history, we’ve compiled mouth-watering recipes contributed by our experienced ARIIX Representative leaders into a beautiful e-Cookbook, ARIIX Clean Eating: Easy Recipes for a Healthy Life. These tried-and-true recipes will help get you started on the right track!

These recipes support each phase of the program, including the first 28 days and the maintenance phase. Please note there are some recipes included that should be used in the maintenance phase and not the first 28 days. This is intentional! Making lifestyle changes for good means being very mindful and intentional about what you eat, and this cookbook is the perfect way to begin that endeavor.

I invite you to try these delicious and nutritious recipes as you begin the journey to a new, healthier you.

Warmly,

Deanna Latson

Let cool for 10 minutes.

When cool enough to handle, use a fork to loosen the squash strands right in their shells. Drizzle with remaining ½ Tbsp. avocado oil, salt and pepper.

ALMOND BUTTER FUDGE PROTEIN BARS

Healthy Recipes 47

INGREDIENTS

⅔ c. quinoa
1 c. zucchini, grated
3 scoops Beauty Boost
2 tsp. chia seeds
6 scoops PureNourish™
1 scoop Power Boost
3 Tbsp. almond butter

TOPPING:
½ scoop Power Boost
1 Tbsp. almond butter
⅓ c. crushed almonds

DIRECTIONS

Rinse quinoa several times until water is clear. Dry the seeds for 15 minutes and toast in a toaster oven or on stovetop.

Grate zucchini and squeeze out excess water in a towel. Place the zucchini in a flat dish and sprinkle with Beauty Boost; this will pull a little liquid out. Sprinkle with chia seeds and let sit for 15 minutes until dissolved. This will thicken the zucchini.

In a food processor, put the zucchini on the bottom, then add the PureNourish and Power Boost with the almond butter. Pulse until the mixture comes together. Last add the toasted quinoa seeds and pulse until mixed well.

Lightly coat a square dish with coconut oil. Pat the batter into the dish, forming an 8x5.5-inch square about ½-inch thick. Set aside.

Topping: Mix the Power Boost and almond butter together to form a paste. Pat this mixture on top of the batter, then press crushed almonds on top. Cover and store in refrigerator. When set (about 2 hours) slice into bars.
