Tuna Pâté

Pâté: a mixture of cooked ground meat and fat minced into a spreadable paste. 

Spreadable meat?  Oh gross, right?  I recently saw a recipe for salmon bisque.  Looked good enough to try.  I like soup and I like salmon.  Let's marry them and see what's what....


It reminded me of cat food, regurgitated and thrown into a soup with some spices!


I thought I was done with creamy seafood, but...

I stumbled upon my tuna pate when I was trying to create an E tuna sandwich.  I have been pregnant and then in a baby fog, so my THM rules are a little muddled.  I bent them here and there, so now that it's time to go back to being strict I got a little confused.  I was in the process of making my E lunch and wanted a Tuna sandwich.  Well, as I got started, it dawned on me that tuna is mixed with mayo to have that 'tunafish sandwich taste'.  Darn!  Now what?  I put the canned tuna in my food processor with a little s&p, lemon juice and a couple wedges of Laughing Cow Lite Cheese.  Something magical happened when I blended it.  A Pâté of some sort.  And it's delicious!  Not at all like regurgitated cat food.  

Tuna Pâté

1 can of tuna in water, drained
3 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese
(that's 4.5 g fat)  
a few squirts of lemon juice
S & P

Blend in food processor until smooth

A complete lunch of Tuna Pâté, Joseph Pita Crackers and a small bowl of tomato soup (pg 293) with broccoli.

You could try this with canned or pouch salmon, but after my seafood bisque experience, I won't be going there!  

Since we are all fancy and French today....
Bon Appétit!

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.

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 Tradi…

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…
