Lemon Slushie

Lemon (or in my case, Lime) Slushie
This is not my recipe.  I swiped it from another blogger.  It is quite possible the most perfect and refreshing drink, ever.  Summer, or not.  It really quenches your thirst. It's considered a Fuel Pull.  
Slushie Recipe

1/4 c lemon or lime juice
1/4c unsweetened almond milk
zest of one lemon or lime
splash of lemon essence/oil (optional)
stevia to taste
water to cover ice
1/2tsp glucomannan

THM Sugar Cookies

Trim Healthy Mama Sugar Cookies

I have been around the block with trying to make THM cookies tasted like a real cookies.  No matter how you cookie cut it, the lack of flour and abundance of almond flour make it weird.  Not firm. Not... like a cookie... Until now!
Shhhhhh!  I have the cookie secret!  Are you ready?

Oat Fiber!
If you are a veteran Trim Healthy Mama then you are very familiar with this stuff.  If you are not, then you may be thinking Oat Flour.  Nope.  Oat FIBER.  I get mine here. The trick in baked goods is to not use too much of this stuff or it will dry it out.  I have read you can use up to 1/4 cup, but 2 tablespoons is just about perfect.
I guess you want my Sugar Cookie recipe now, huh? It taste every bit as good as a real sugar cookie and it's kid approved.

Baby #6

20 Weeks Today!  I'm half way there!!!!  This is baby number six and the LAST baby coming out of me.  I always wondered when I would feel confident that I could say that.  After number 5, I wasn't able to 'close the hatch'.  It just didn't feel right.  Now... I am ready!  I am ready to move to a different season.  I will enjoy this baby like it's my last... cause it is!  I have so many plans for myself.  Me!  Yes, I want to indulge in me.  I find myself dreaming of all the kids grown, mature, no more diapers, adult conversations, no threats of spankings and buckling of car seats and it seems so foreign to me.  I can't wait.  Much to look forward to.
