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.  


**** 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 Traditional Chinese Medicine of Fujian Province concluded that stress levels reduced significantly with four servings of Oolong each day for a week. SIP THE SHRINKER contains four servings of Oolong. Hey Mama, you may be only one week away from a more "calm" you.
Even though Oolong is the main Super Star of this recipe, the other co-star ingredients were carefully chosen by Mwa. They not only harmonize perfectly for taste enhancement but they too help optimize fat loss, rev the metabolism and provide extremely high antioxidant, nutrient and anti- inflammatory properties. This drink is simple and inexpensive but will provide more mineralizing "mojo" than some expensive houghty taughty health tonic from the health food store.

**** Cinnamon regulates blood sugar. It slows the rate at which the stomach empties after meals. It not only stimulates insulin receptors, but also inhibits an enzyme that inactivates them so it creates more ability to use glucose. It only takes a scant half tsp. to reduce blood sugar levels and that is easily provided in the SHRINKER... yay for us!
It reduces LDL cholesterol... it contains effective anti-infectious compounds against dangerous pathogens... it is also highly anti-inflammatory and reduces cytokines linked to arthritic pain. It also reduces chronic inflammation linked with neurological disorders... Cinnamon reduces the proliferation of cancer cells I'm on a roll Pearl! Can I keep going Sis? Research by Dr.P. Zoladz found that just smelling the wonderful odor of cinnamon improves brain activity. I didn't hear her say no! It is effective for menstrual pain and infertility. This is because Cinnamon contains a natural chemical called cinnamaldehyde, which studies show increases the hormone progesterone in woman. It is also a natural food preservative. Cinnamon is such a powerful antioxidant that it prevents oxidation more effectively than the chemical food preservatives BHT and BHA.

The Shrinker

1. Boil enough water to fill a large coffee mug in which you will steep 4 tea bags of Oolong. Let it cool.
2. Once cool, pour this tea into a blender along with ½ cup of Unsweetened Almond milk, a couple of generous pinches of Celtic salt, a generous tsp. or two of vanilla, stevia extract to taste (go easy and add more if needed), ½ - 1 tsp. of cinnamon (cinnamon lovers can use more) and cayenne pepper to taste. If you have not developed a taste for hot pepper then use black pepper to replace the red for your chai blend. Turn on blender and blend well. This is your SHRINKER concentrate.
3. Once blended, pour the concentrate into a glass 2 quart size canning jar and fill to the top with ice. If you don’t have a 2 quarter, I recommend you get one as it is fun having your day’s quota (2 quarts of deliciousness) in one huge jar. But you can split your concentrate between two quart size canning jars. You can add a bit of water to the concentrate if needed to make the liquid reach the top of the jar, but do make sure there is plenty of ice to keep the SHRINKER thoroughly chilled.
4. Put a lid on the jar, shake well then taste and adjust flavors. Own it!!!! What do you need to add so it knocks your socks off!! More stevia? More vanilla? I usually add more hot pepper because I like it to burn and make me feel like a feisty tiger!
5. Love it

(This is NOT a meal replacement.  It's meant to be sipped when senseless munchie attacks hit!)

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!"  
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.

Into your favorite blender add the following:

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…
