Tuna & Capers – How to Punch Up Your Lunch

Tuna & Capers Salad | Oh Sweet Mercy #recipes #thm #lowcarb #capers #ohsweetmercy

What comes to mind when I say “Tuna Salad”?

Maybe bland, mushy-ness sandwiched between soggy pieces of white bread, wrapped in plastic, waiting patiently on the shelf of a convenience store refrigerator (for who knows HOW long)? If that’s the case, you’ll be delightfully surprised with this punched-up tuna salad recipe. It’s a twist on a classic with an ingredient you probably never thought of adding. (more…)

SweetLeaf WaterDrops Natural Stevia Water Enhancer Review PLUS a giveaway!


Are you getting enough water every day? Or protein? 

That’s a challenge for many of us and when the weather warms up, staying hydrated is essential. If you just can’t do plain old water or get bored drinking plain old water, you need a flavorful option that won’t upset your healthy eating plan.  (more…)

Shabbat Shalom to You!

Since we observe the 7th day Sabbath in our family, I don’t do any blog work from sundown on Friday to sundown Saturday.

This time is a much needed “island of rest” I look forward to every week. Time to disconnect from the busyness of every day life, time to study scriptures, time to fellowship with other believers, time for family.

I pray your home is filled with shalom (peace…and so much more) during this all-too-brief respite from life.

I’ll Love You Forever…Even if You Break My Heart a Little

I'll Love You Forever, Even if You Break My Heart a Little | Oh Sweet Mercy #mothering #littleboys #love #family #ohsweetmercy

“Mister’s not feeling well. When will you be home?”

I was on my way back, when I got a text from my hubby.

I’d spent the last couple of hours or so conspiring with some ladies that I had hiked around Israel and Jordan with last summer, to make plans for the upcoming visit of another lady from our trip. She was my roomie, and coming all the way from England to spend a week or so here.

We wanted to make sure she got the best bang for her buck while visiting the good ole U S of A.

A quick phone call home reveals that Mister did not eat supper. That almost made me tell hubby to call 911. When Mister doesn’t eat, that’s pretty serious.  (more…)

5 Reasons Why You Need the New Trim Healthy Mama Plan

5 Reasons Why You Need the New Trim Healthy Mama Plan | Oh Sweet Mercy #reviews #thm #healthy #weightloss #foodfreedom #ohsweetmercy

The Trim Healthy Mama Plan has been around for several years. They’ve updated their plan and published two new books! Today I’m sharing why this healthy eating plan may be right for you…read on to learn more about Food Freedom!


If I said “I had a FP FSF for lunch and later I’m going to have some CBW for a snack” would understand the code? 

Do you see people posting delicious looking meals in your Facebook feed? With a bizarre language to describe it? And, even more confounding is that they are losing weight while eating what looks like fattening foods?

What about this one…”I just made this amazing GGMS and CIM for breakfast! I can’t believe I’m eating cake for breakfast and it’s good for me!!”

I mean really, you can’t lose weight eating cake for breakfast, right? What is this craziness?

This craziness is called Food Freedom. (more…)

How to Make Amazingly Fluffy, Creamy Mashed Fauxtatoes

How to Make Amazingly Fluffy, Creamy Mashed Fauxtatoes | Oh Sweet Mercy #recipes #thm #lowcarb #dairyfree #fauxtatoes #ohsweetmercy

 

Are you missing mashed potatoes? 

For many carboholics, a big ole pile of fluffy, creamy mashed potatoes is like a big, warm hug. It’s an iconic comfort food, and can bring back fond memories of family holiday dinners.

Or, if your mom had a tendency to make them lumpy, maybe not so fond.

I can tell you that I personally LOVE a big ole pile of fluffy, creamy mashed potatoes with a pat of butter slowly melting on top. Gravy, I can take it or leave it, but I LOVE mashed potatoes.

So when your diet plan says NO POTATOES FOR YOU that feels like a punch in the gut, right?

And so not fair. (more…)

The Trim Healthy Mama Creed You Need When You Think “It’s Not Fair”

Reality Check Monday |Oh Sweet Mercy #realitycheckmonday #keepingitreal #success #life #thm #ohsweetmercy

Somehow, when I wasn’t looking, April completely blindsided me.

I mean, it’s not like I didn’t know April was next, of course. It’s always in the same spot on the calendar – every single year. It’s reliable like that.

It’s just that time and I have always had a strange relationship. It’s one of those vapory, nebulous things that I can’t seem to get a grasp on many times. I can go into a store and feel like I’ve been there 15 minutes, only to discover it’s been an hour and a half. I don’t know how to explain it, or overcome it. So I face each day with a battle looming before me…who will win? Time? Or Me?

I’ll give you a hint…a Time Lord, I am not. (more…)
