Trim Healthy Tuesday Linked Posts Guidelines

  1. Accepted post topics will be: Trim Healthy Mama related recipes, kitchen tips, weekly menu, ‘how to’ articles, or exercise tips, and MODEST before and after photos may be attached to any of the above. Please do not link personal progress reports or non-THM recipes.
  2. You may post links from YOUR blog to recipes that are Trim Healthy Mama friendly. They can be S (satisfying), E (energizing), FP (Fuel Pull), or Crossovers. Please note which of these categories your recipe falls under. Nutrition information for your recipe is helpful, but not mandatory.
  3. Please respect the copyright of the book, and do not post recipes from the Trim Healthy Mama book on your blog. You MAY post recipes that you’ve changed up to make your own, but nothing verbatim from the book.
  4. Please link your post back to one of the hosting blogs above: Gwen’s Nest or Stacy Makes Cents. Your link will show up on both blogs! DO NOT LINK TO THE HOMEPAGE – instead link directly to this Trim Healthy Tuesday post: http://www.gwens-nest.com/?p=2867
  5. Please post no more than 3 links each week.
  6. Post new links from your blog each week – do not post the same link each week.
  7. You may include recipes with “Splenda” and other similar products or foods that are considered “compromise foods”, but please note that in the recipe, and either make them optional or offer substitutions for on plan items if possible. Please do not use ingredients that are off plan…like white potatoes.
  8. No giveaways or advertising-only type posts are allowed. You may post about cookbooks that you like and you may include affiliate links, but the post MUST be THM friendly. Example – posting about an eCookbook that you like is acceptable when telling how it can help with THM. Posting about a cookbook just so you can sell it is NOT acceptable.
  9. Any post that does not meet the guidelines outlined above will be considered Spam and will be deleted.
  10. Though it’s not required, it would be polite if you would link directly to the Trim Healthy Mama website in each of your posts – they’ve done so much to help us all, and we’d like to increase their traffic. www.trimhealthymama.com

    I’m trying to be excited about this…I really am. But my deep hatred of tea just won’t let me. Barry, however, is a tea lover and pretty stinkin’ happy. :-)

    I LOVE sweet tea and have been making mine with Stevia since starting THM. I have been experimenting to find the right balance, so I am excited to try this. I do have a question though – how much does your pitcher hold?
    Thank you,
    Rashel

    You might want to check out Mountain Rose Herbs of Frontier Natural Products Co-op for organic black tea. A world of difference! We’ve bought organic orange pekoe from Frontier (what Lipton’s is supposed to be!) for many years for making Kombucha and it’s sooooo good! The tea smells heavenly while brewing. =)

    My husband loves ice tea, sweet or not. I love the idea of a concentrate! We are always running out! Thanks =)

    I just started using xylitol and stevia extract in our tea. We don’t do it south sweet but it works well for us. Per gallon: 1/2 cup xylitol and about 8 small shakes NuNaturals stevia extract. I was doing just the xylitol but it was leaving it kind of flat. The stevia rounds it out nicely.

      There is a LONG list of alternative and artificial sweeteners that I dislike the taste of, but the NOW or old NuNaturals is actually enjoyable for me.

      My pitcher is a half gallon. But you can scale this to any pitcher size…just use the amount of tea bags and sweetener you’d normally use, and triple it for a triple batch of concentrate.

    I just looked up the Kal and it would appear they’ve started adding maltodexrin to it. Just thought if you haven’t seen that you might want to know :)

    I love iced tea, and am hoping this will be my new go to recipe for summer (rather than the super sugary iced tea I have been making in the past or Pepsi!). I have always liked having a concentrate in my fridge for quick drinks, and never thought to do the same with the THM drinks!

    Do you think this recipe would work well using the THM Super Sweet?

    It is what I have in my pantry currently.

    • says

      I would definitely try the THM Super Sweet Blend…it’s one of my favorites! I use about half of what I’d use for Truvia or similar sweeteners. I’d start small, like 1/4 to 1/3 of the amount of sugar you used to use, and find your sweet spot measurement. :) Start with one pitcher and figure out your amount, and then it’s easy to multiply up to make a concentrate. :) Enjoy!
