Mister asks me all the time to make him poached eggs. My answer is usually “No, Mister, I’m not making poached eggs this morning.” I stink at making poached eggs, you see, and since I’m not really what you call a “morning person,” starting my day out with an epic failure is not my idea of fun. I don’t need that kind of stress in my life, let me tell… Continue Reading
By now, you’ve probably seen or heard about Trim Healthy Mama. Do you see people posting delicious looking meals in your Facebook feed? With a seemingly strange language to describe it…like “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!!” And, even more confounding is that they are losing weight while eating what looks to you… Continue Reading
What is matcha tea? Matcha tea is a green tea that is unique to Japan and comes from the plant Camellia Sinensis. It has been used for hundreds of years in tea ceremonies. Matcha is the only form of tea in which the whole leaf is consumed rather than just brewing in water such as with loose leaf teas. Consuming the whole leaf means you also get more of the… Continue Reading
Have you heard of chana dal? When I first got my Trim Healthy Mama book back in August of 2014, I read about chana dal. I was particularly intrigued by how it is supposed to be a very good carb (yes, there really is such a thing!) for people with blood sugar issues.
For breakfast this morning, I played a game of What’s In The Fridge… You know…the game you play when you didn’t plan ahead and you have no idea what sounds good or what you even have… I rummaged around in there and found some leftover plain, cooked spaghetti squash. I like to cook a spaghetti squash or two to have it on hand for easy sides or meals. Then I threw… Continue Reading
Mister wanted french toast this morning, and I’ll be honest. I didn’t feel like making it. In fact, he specifically asked for coconut flour flatbread french toast, and I had never before concocted such a thing. It sounded amazing, really. It also sounded like a bit more work than what I was feeling up to…being in the throes of a wicked allergy attack lately. I found myself wishing I fed my kids… Continue Reading
When I head to the kitchen, I don’t always know what will happen. Yesterday, this delicious Vanilla Cake in a Mug recipe happened. I love it when something delicious…and easy…happens! It was so tasty I had it for my S breakfast this morning. In case you’re wondering, an “S” breakfast is one with lots of good, healthy fats and very few carbs. I’ve been a very happy and successful Trim… Continue Reading
Sunday I whipped up a recipe I called Coconut Berry Cloud. Yesterday after supper I made something I’m calling Decadent Coconut Berry Bliss. It would probably be considered a “Heavy S” because of the full fat coconut milk, so don’t eat this after a big S meal of Cheeseburger Pie (pg 326), salad with Easy Balsamic Vinaigrette and some Garlic Biscuits in a Mug.
I was in one of those I’m Hungry But Nothing Sounds Good And I Don’t Feel Like Cooking moods. It’s a familiar mood, unfortunately. Last night when I went to bed, I was determined to get up in the morning and spend time with YHWH and His Word first thing. BEFORE checking email and Facebook and YouFood. Before writing blog posts (another area in which I was feeling uninspired). I… Continue Reading
What is a WonderMix? The WonderMix is a deluxe kitchen tool brought to you by the makers of the amazing WonderMill. I got a chance to participate in the WonderMill Grain Mill Challenge a few years ago and it’s been one of my favorite kitchen tools! So when I got a chance to review the new WonderMix, I jumped on it. The WonderMix combines two of the most-used appliances in my… Continue Reading
