My friend Sherry recommended a book to me that is rocking my world. It's called Trim Healthy Mama and is very very long. I don't mind a long book but this one is intense. I'm so intrigued by it and am reading it a little everyday. I'm glad that I'm reading it and learning about a new way of dividing food for energy burning.
So far, I've tried a couple of their recipes. I will be trying lots more and it's just fun to learn new things. I don't quite understand everything Im doing yet but I will. I'm just not far enough into the book yet.
Yesterday morning, I made pancakes from oats and cottage cheese. Surprisingly, they were DELISH!!! My girls thought they were better than anything we've had in the pancake department so we will definitely be making more of those.
Looking forward to trying more recipes that are good for us. I'll post the ones we love and the ones that we hate. It's fun to try new things and learn how to better take care of our bodies. We are on a major health kick that I hope lasts. Mabrey has lost 10 lbs since the beginning of the year by going to the gym and eating healthier. Not dieting, but looking for good things to eat. None of us are junk food eaters. We just love good hearty country meals. After my battle with my blood last week, I started really looking for high iron foods and healthier options for carbs. I'm so thankful Sherry told me about this book because we are serious business about getting as healthy as we can.
