I found this recipe the other day. It is so good! I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. Also, I put whipped cream, a drizzle of strawberries (thawed, blended in a blender with a little sweetener), and a wee bit of melted Rich Chocolate Fudge on the top. As one of the commenters suggested, you could add some whey protein powder for added protein. lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/cakes/r/Low-Carb-No-Bake-Cheesecake.htm

Hi Bethandmom, thanks for posting this recipe!
I made it last week and it was a huge hit at my house. Even as I was apologising and explaining to my husband that it wasn't a "real" cheesecake (I normally make baked cheesecakes and haven't ever found a no bake variety I like) he stopped and said," I keep saying.. I LIKE IT!! Make it again!"
The things I did differently were to add a little flaxmeal to the base, which I could take or leave, and I had no whipping cream, only double cream (51% fat and not thickened with anything) and so didn't whip the cream, just stirred it through. To be honest, that was sooooo easy, and produced a nice, rich feel similar to a baked cheesecake, that this time I bought the double cream on purpose. Served with raspberries on top, it was a really bit hit in my house.. Thanks! :-)
steffanie3: natcr3w, that works just fine for E You do want your sourdough to be whole grain to be on plan and your oats to be not instant.

kimlopez: Would the Earth Milk be OK to drink during pregnancy. I love it and just wanted to make sure. I'm assuming yes since "the shrinker" is on the list but just thought I would ask.

stacylynn: What do you think about doing the fuel pull weeks continually? It seems to be working and I don't want to mess up again!

stacylynn: Oops! Fuel pull weeks should have been Fuel Pull Cycle in my aforementioned comment...I need more sleep!

meemee: Was a Chick-fil-A grilled chicken breast sandwich minus the multi-grain bun and no condiments ok and an E?

steffanie3: Yes kimlopez, some mamas cut back a bit on the Oolong for caffeine and/or folic acid absorption, I personally drank mine a different time of day than my prenatal. I did make it with pregnancy tea as well and enjoyed it very much that way

steffanie3: stacylynn you want to take a break, you can do three weeks but then I think you want to break for a month. I would have to check on the time I think it is a few weeks to a month in between.

steffanie3: meemee you could us the grilled chicken breast in an E, but you would want an E fuel with it for an E. We don't have CFA, but I think I have seen mentioned they have a fruit cup or some kind of fruit option (maybe a salad with fruit) so you could do that

steffanie3: for your E fuel alone the breast would be FP

steffanie3: lindah60 Welcome I think you will find THM very compatable with your diabetes, one thing you might find is you need to do more of a "pulled back E", basically lighter on the E fuel (on plan carbs) to help your blood sugars stay stable. You might also

steffanie3: have a little bit of a journey to find out what time of day works best for your E meals, my friend likes them earlier in the day since she can do a bit of excersize since that helps her levels stay in a good range (she is type 2) though.
May 30, 2015 1:27:19 GMT -5
steffanie3: A walk after an E lunch or breakfast seems to work just great for her

steffanie3: Welcome Bec720 Many mamas with PCOS do well on THM, looking forward to your journey.

orygungurl: I had a nice surprise when I went to the doctor a week ago. I learned that, after being on THM, off and on for a couple of years, I had actually lost 17 lbs!

lauriebovi: Just starting on this plan. Well I've been starting for a while now. Anyone have a really hard time staying on? I have no issue with what I'm eating. I feel like I'm just lazy and fall into old habits. any advice or personal experience?
Jul 16, 2015 16:45:08 GMT -5
steffanie3: lauriebovi, a menu plan really helps me even if it is just a daily plan so I kind of know what I will be eating through the day with snacks and meals. Also for me prepping ahead is a super helpful, having a large batch of something to grab when needed
