This Frosted Mocha is a delicious and satisfying drink. Perfect for a snack between meals or for a big dessert.

Tips for making Frosted Mocha:

  • Keep an eye on the carbs in your cocoa powder, some of them contain more carbs than others. I use raw cacao powder when I can for an added healthy benefit, but it isn’t necessary to enjoy this delightful drink.
  • The added collagen in this drink gives you a good amount of protein to help make this a more satisfying snack. THM Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen works well in this recipe. It’s also great for your skin and joints.
  • The glucomannan helps give this drink a creamy texture. Either THM Glucomannan or Now Glucomannan would work well.
  • This drink is best enjoyed within a half-hour of making.
  • I do use a Vitamix blender and so I have a tamper that I use to push down the ice while it’s blending. If you are using a different type of blender you may need to stop the blender occasionally and use a large spoon or rubber spatula to push down the ice.

This light. tasty vanilla icing is in between a glaze and frosting. It can be put in a baggie and piped onto your baked goodies. Clip a tiny corner of the baggie and squeeze out the icing. You can go slowly and controlled or go fast and let it get all squiggly like I did on the scone above.

I put in just a bit of butter flavoring in this recipe, if you don’t have any it will still work, but it does add a light, buttery flavor that I think is worth adding in.

Try this icing with my Grain-Free Snickerdoodle Scones.

Strawberries and lime complement each other in a delightful way in this slushy drink. You may have had a version of this at a drive-thru made with regular sugar-filled soda, but this healthy version is full of fruit and sweetened with only stevia.

If you want to make this a full snack add in the collagen for a nice serving of protein. Trim Healthy Mama Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen are my favorites.

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an E if you split it in two servings. If you split it into 4 servings it will be an FP.

Fried Summer Squash is a super-easy recipe that will make it a snap to add some yummy vegetables to your meals.

Yellow summer squash and zucchini are coming out of our garden in full force now. With recipes like this one and several others, we’ve been enjoying having these veggies everyday. I’ve also been shredding any extra squash and freezing it in 2 cup portions in freezer bags to be able to be able to use it during the winter in baked good, like cakes and breads.

Organic Herbamare is my go-to seasoning to pair with vegetables, but feel free to use any seasoning salt that you prefer.

Peach Good Girl Moonshine - Sugar-free, Low-carb

Quick and easy to make!

Peach Good Girl Moonshine is so delightful and refreshing. It’s a perfect summertime drink and the only thing you need to go along with it is…..a hammock or an ENO. Have you seen ENOS? They are a type of hammock that you can put up anywhere. We were able to visit with some dear friends over the 4th of July and they were telling us about their new ENOS and how much fun they were having with them. I seriously want one… or four.

Picture this peachy, ice-cold drink in a hammock with good company or a good book. Or maybe, with just the good company on the back porch.

Not only is this drink delicious, it’s an all-day sipper!  All-day sippers are drinks that don’t have any fuel that your body would need to burn or store. No fat, no carbs, no protein. Just refreshing goodness and good for you ingredients!

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an FP all-day sipper.

White Root Beer Frosty

White Root Beer Frosty - Dairy-free, Sugar-free

 

White Root Beer Frosty - Dairy-free, Sugar-free

A new twist on an old favorite – Root Beer Float becomes a White Root Beer Frosty featuring Zevia Ginger Root Beer!

Recently Zevia started making their drinks clear – no caramel coloring!

Zevia sodas don’t contain sugar, use non-GMO ingredients, and contains no phosphoric acid! Yay! You can read more about Zevia’s ingredients on their website. I’ve been able to find Zevia’s at my local grocery store and they are often on sale! Zevia’s Zero Calorie Sodas are making my sugar-free life a little easier.

  • This recipe calls for collagen, it’s optional to add in, but it does add protein and makes this treat much more nutritious. My favorite brands are THM’s Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen through Amazon, since this isn’t an item that is normally at your local grocery store you would need to order it, it’s just a matter of where you like to order from.
  • The glucomannan gives this treat a creamier texture. And again I use both THM’s brand or Now brand, it just depends on where I’m ordering and sale prices.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

 

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

 

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

I don’t remember when chicken nuggets first came on the scene, but I think the first nuggets I had were at McDonalds years ago. I thought they were pretty wonderful, especially dipped in honey-mustard sauce.

Since going gluten-free and following Trim Healthy Mama, I need to make our chicken nuggets from scratch. I call these lazy chicken nuggets because there are days, probably more often than not, that I don’t want to have to do much to get supper on the table. So, instead of dipping the little chicken pieces in eggs and then picking each one out and then dredging them in batter, I just pour the eggs on the chicken and then pour the breading over it all. Give it a stir and then get them to frying. The hardest part of this recipe is cutting the chicken breasts into pieces.

I use red palm oil in this recipe, because I think it adds a wonderful flavor and a lovely golden color to your food. If you don’t have any feel free to use coconut oil only.

Trim Healthy Mamas these Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets are an S.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 5 servings
Ingredients
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 whole eggs, or 2 egg yolks (only if you already have some separated), whisked with a fork
  • ½ cup flaxmeal
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon mineral salt
  • 4 tablespoons red palm oil
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Cut chicken breasts in 1 to 2 inch pieces.
  2. Begin heating skillet with red palm oil and coconut oil over medium heat.
  3. Place chicken breasts in pie pan or other shallow dish.
  4. Pour eggs over chicken and stir around with a fork, making sure that the egg covers the chicken pieces.
  5. In a small bowl mix flaxmeal, coconut flour, spices, and salt together. Spread over chicken. Stir chicken around to coat with the breading.
  6. Once the oil in the skillet is hot, carefully place chicken in skillet without crowding too much. If all the chicken doesn't fit in the skillet you may need to fry a second batch, if so you add a little more oil to the pan before frying the second batch. Or use 2 skillets at the same time.
  7. Turn after 4-5 minutes and continue frying on other side another 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.
