Strawberry Parfait with Slim Belly Jelly and Crunchy Granola

Every time I say the word Parfait, I simply must recite the lines from Donkey on Shriek... "Everybody likes Parfaits!"


This is wonderful as a breakfast or dessert, or snack.  Just alter how much granola you use.  I start by a couple large dollops of greek yogurt.  To that I'll had a half of scoop of Swanson's Protein powder, a teaspoon of vanilla and sweetener of choice.  (Mine is a couple Tablespoons of ground up erythritol and a dash of stevia.)  Give it a good stir.  It should be just barely sweet, because your Slim Belly Jelly will give it the sweetness you'll need to complete it.

My secret to making Slim Belly Jelly (from the THM book):
When I grind my Erythritol in my Vitamix, there is always a nice, heavy, residue of powdered sweetness.  I can't get it all into my container.  So here's what I do to harvest every last drop.  I leave a bag of frozen strawberries in the frig to defrost.  (Usually over night) After grinding my erythritol, and scraping all I can into my container, I pour the defrosted strawberries into the container with a some stevia, lemon juice and glucci.  I give it a whirl and there you have it.  Slim Belly Jelly that the THM sisters invented and no waste on your erythritol.  Yah!

Add a few sprinkles of your crunchy granola for a fuel pull or a lot for an E meal.

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
BUT.................
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work 
NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking blend (homemade or THM brand)
1/2 c pure can pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay*
Pinch of salt
1 Tb almond butter
1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it
1 Tb coconut oil
Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as you go!  Erythrito…

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  




SHRINK the FAT...

**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
Another study conducted by the academy of Tradi…
