Dark Chocolate Raspberry Frappe - Sugar Free and Fabulous | Oh Sweet Mercy #sugarfree #lowcarb #coffeedrinks #thm #ohsweetmercy


I proved in my Salted Caramel Frappe post that you don’t have to give up your favorite frozen coffee drinks when you start THM.

You just need to know how to make them to fit the THM guidelines. And, I discovered, that basic recipe can be tweaked to suit whatever flavor you crave.

Craving something dark chocolate and raspberry-ish? I got you covered with this Dark Chocolate Raspberry Mocha Frappe, my friend. Read on… (more…)

How to Clean Your Dog’s Coat Without Shampoo – E-cloth Review

How to Clean Your Dog's Coat Without Shampoo - e-cloth Review | #reviews #naturalcleaning #ecloth #naturalliving

What do you mean “clean your dog WITHOUT shampoo”? Why would you even want to do that?

We’ve got a black Lab. Labrador Retrievers are supposed to have water resistant coats – because their job is to retrieve downed waterfowl for their hunter masters. Anyone who’s ever duck hunted knows that if you’re hunting ducks you’re on or near the water, and the chances of any duck you hit dropping into the water are pretty high.

So you send your faithful, well-trained canine hunting buddy out into that cold water to retrieve them for you. And just like the rest of your hunting gear, you need to keep your Lab’s water-resistant coat in excellent shape.

Using regular dog shampoos can strip the natural oils on your Lab’s coat that are there specifically to help that water roll off…like water off a duck’s back. And the chemicals in most commercial dog shampoos may not be something you want to put on your faithful companion. (more…)

Low Carb Meaty Popper Pockets

Low Carb Meaty Popper Pockets | Oh Sweet Mercy #easy #lowcarb #thm #recipes #ohsweetmercy

There’s something to be said for simple, can I get an amen?

Busy is the order of the day lately around my house, so a simple-to-prepare Trim Healthy Mama friendly meal makes my heart (and tummy) happy. Low carb tortillas are great for super simple meals. Just put some stuff in them, fold or roll them up and you’re good to go…either straight down the hatch or into the skillet for a few minutes for a deliciously crispy “pocket.”

The stuffing possibilities are endless. You can put a dent in cleaning out the fridge before grocery day and using up leftovers. Garden going nuts? Stuff that baby with fresh veggies and herbs that complement your protein source. You can make yours super spicy, or not. It’s all about you, baby. For just one brief moment, anyway. (more…)

Salted Caramel Frappe – How Make it Like a Coffeehouse Barista

Salted Caramel Frappe - How to Make it Like a Low Carb Boss | Oh Sweet Mercy #thm #sugarfree #lowcarb #recipes #ohsweetmercy


Did you know that I am a trained Barista? Indeed I am. 

It’s been years since I’ve worked at a certain famous coffee chain found in airports, supermarkets, and street corners across the globe, but I’m quite thankful for what I learned about coffee while I worked there. Like how much I love dark, roasty coffee. And those yummy, icy caramel frappes which go by a certain trademarked name that rhymes with “cappuccino”.  (more…)

Ever take a bite of something and find yourself instantly transported back in time?

To a moment in time? To an era long left behind? Some food you forgot about, maybe? Or maybe you never knew the recipe because your friend’s mom made it and you never asked her for it.

Because when you’re 10 you don’t really think about stuff like recipes. You just know that you can go across the street to your friend’s house and her awesome German mom will have that yummy stuff in the fridge. (more…)

BBQ Baked Beans – Low or No Fat

BBQ Baked Beans - Low or No Fat | Oh Sweet Mercy #thm #lowfat #recipes #ohsweetmercy


Independence Day usually means BBQs and fireworks here in America.

And celebrating our nation’s hard-earned freedom also means a veritable minefield of off-plan food choices for the Trim Healthy Mama follower. Potato salad, chips, buns for grilled meats as well as sugar-laden desserts can make sticking to our healthy eating plan difficult.

If you’re hosting a party or bringing food to a family cookout, one solution is to make on plan foods that everyone will enjoy. These low-fat BBQ baked beans fit with the Trim Healthy Mama E style meal guidelines without leaving out the flavor everyone else will expect. (more…)
