Hi I am a 43 year old mom of 9 with one on the way waiting for my book and eager to start my journey. My request is that someone might give me a list of products that will be essential for me to buy so I can have them on hand when I start. We live in a rural area with no health food stores so I will need to order from amazon. Thank you so much. Ashley
The essentials will vary from person to person. For me, I want to eat sweet things, so the nustevia pure extract powder is an essential. Also the Swanson whey protein powder which I use in my fuel pull smoothies. Those are probably the only three essential special ingredients for me.
Coconut oil is nice to make skinny chocolate and use in many of the baked good recipes. A lot of people find the glucomannan critical for gravies and sauces, but I don't make many of those, and it's not essential to the smoothies. I do also appreciate having Dreamfields pasta for a once a week mac & cheese treat; that's available at many Walmarts. I also like the low-carb tortillas with only ~5 g net carbs, which I also find at my local Walmart.
Check out this blog with a great "quick start" guide. Or join the THM Facebook group. They have files posted with all sorts if helpful hints...including recommendations of what to buy while you're waiting for your book to arrive. HTH!

steffanie3: Green pea flour could be used in an E setting, if you have a specific recipe asking in above forum we could give it a look payeville

steffanie3: crazyabt6, did you use the homemade flour called for in making in the first step?

steffanie3: gram42can, nope Cheerios would be a no go on THM

steffanie3: perla, I don't have those, but if you post ingredients in a post above we could take a look or other mamas might spot it that do have it. The chatbox questions are easy to miss because they can scroll by without mamas seeing them

solagratia: I'm new and not sure how this this works...new to THM too and have a question. Appreciate any help I can get.

solagratia: I've been doing THM about 2 weeks and I'm starting to loose a bit of wieght but my breath has become strange. I can't smell it but my husband says it's a bit metallic and quite strongly ammonia-like in its smell.

solagratia: We're concerned since I am nursing our 11 month old. I've had this happen before when I've tried to loose weight while still nursing. But years ago (before my childbearing and nursing days) I lost weight when needed without this side affect.
Mar 16, 2015 2:22:19 GMT -5
solagratia: My mild supply seems fine, but we are concerned about how this could affect the baby or if something is wrong with me. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks

steffanie3: solagratia, it sounds like you are in ketosis are you mixing up your fuels well? If you would like you can post a few days menus in a thread above and the ladies are great about helping make suggestions

Dutchi: Is there a limit for how much almond milk you can use in a meal...any category? For example...can I use 1.5 cups of almond milk in a smoothie with whey and berries and still have it be a FP? I find the ice waters down the flavour too much for my liking.
Mar 17, 2015 12:36:37 GMT -5
Dutchi: I bought some whey powder at the bulk food store. Most recipes call for 1 scoop. Can you tell what 1 scoop would equal...1 tablespoon...2 tablespoons?
Mar 17, 2015 13:14:00 GMT -5
steffanie3: Dutchi a cup and a half can work specifically in that example, typically it is good to stick to a serving is a good idea
Mar 22, 2015 15:50:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: You might have to check with the store to be sure, a typical scoop is 1/4 to a 1/3 but they can vary a bit. For protein you do want a whey protein isolate, cross-microfiltered preferred.

steffanie3: Be sure and share a day's menu on Menu Monday http://trimhealthymama.freeforums.net/thread/3357/menu-mondays-march-30
