Just a heads up that today, April 25th, the TrimHealthyMama© store is having a sale! Now is the perfect time to stock up, or to try something new. To help you out, here is a list of my favorite TrimHealthyMama products and how and why I use them.
Super Sweet – Hands down the best stevia sweetener I’ve tried. I use this product daily as a replacement for sugar. For the most part, I credit giving up sugar for my weight loss. These natural sweeteners make it possible to have your cake and eat it too.
Gentle Sweet – This is also a stevia-based sweetener, but has a finer texture (like powdered sugar) so it does better in some recipes that require thickening (for example, homemade frostings). This is also a perfect sweetener for someone new to stevia, it has a very mild taste similar to sugar. My picky, “I hate stevia” teenage daughter uses this one!
(For more information on how to use these sweeteners in recipes and how to substitute them for sugar, check out this Sweetener Conversion Chart.)
Integral Collagen – Collagen is an ingredient that ancient peoples got lots of when they ate meat on the bone and homemade bone broth. Our modern diets are somewhat lacking in this nutrient. Collagen is wonderful for the skin and is a great source of protein. I mix it in my coffee and in smoothies and don’t notice it at all.
THM Baking Blend – This is a gluten-free, low carb baking blend that I use to make pancakes, waffles, muffins and many other healthy, trimmifying baked treats. I also use it as a breading for meats and other recipes.
Peanut Flour – Oh my. As a peanut butter lover, I adore my peanut flour! With it one can make the most delicious treats – one of my favorites being the no-bake peanut bars (I seriously make this weekly!). It is a gluten-free flour that has 85% less fat than straight up peanut butter. I love mixing a bit into Greek yogurt for a filling treat with minimal calories. Some peanut flours available in stores contain sugar. This one does not!
There are other items I purchase from TrimHealthyMama, but these are the items I run out of the fastest.
