Homemade Fruit Bottom Yogurt Recipe

Fruit on bottom yogurt recipe

My homemade fruit bottom yogurt recipe brings back some delicious memories. My parents were into super healthy eating when I was a little kid, and we didn’t get much in the way of sugary treats, but we were allowed to choose our own flavor of yogurt. As a child, one of my very favorite treats was Dannon’s Boysenberry yogurt.

Goodbye & Hello Again

P1100615

P1100615For the past 16 months, I’ve been involved heavily in the creation and maintenance of the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook community. My work there as a volunteer was very fulfilling and fun, but as the community grew, and as I took on other projects, I found myself over extended and having to lay down things that I really enjoyed, like blogging, writing, eating, and washing my hair.  I began neglecting my home and family.

Goodbye

I’ve carefully and prayerfully considered my options for over a month, but I came to the final realization this past Friday that I needed to seriously reprioritize my time and my life.  Starting now.

Trim Healthy Mama Stevia Review

The Trim Healthy Mama Stevia & sweeteners were released today, and there have been SO many questions about them that I thought I’d put together a review. I was given a one ounce bag of their organic Pure Stevia Extract, and a one pound bag of their Sweet Blend for my birthday this year, and have really enjoyed playing with them in my kitchen. (Dear FTC: this is not a paid endorsement…just something that I asked to do for others who have questions about the new sweeteners.)

I have passed up more tables with Girl Scout Cookies screaming my name! Samoas area favorite. I used your Thin Mint Shake recipe (my other favorite Girl Scout cookie) and tweaked it to create a Somoa Shake!”

THM Weight Loss Before & After: One Year

One Year Update

This weight loss before & after is probably the last one I’ll need to post, but I’m SO excited to post it. Last year this time, I was *just* getting my feet wet with the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan, and I remember on the brand new Facebook group, a lady asked, “Is there anyone here who has actually been on this diet for a year or more and sustained weight loss?”
