Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruit of your righteousness. 2 Corinthians 9:10
I found the shrinker on THM Facebook page. I copied this from there:
The Shrinker: (Makes 2 quarts)
1. Boil enough water to fill a large coffee mug in which you will steep 4 Oolong tea bags until water is cool.
2. Once cool, pour this tea into a blender along with ½ cup of Unsweetened Almond milk, a couple of generous pinches of Celtic salt, a generous tsp. or two of vanilla, stevia extract to taste (go easy and add more if needed), ½ - 1 tsp. of cinnamon (cinnamon lovers can use more) and cayenne pepper to taste. If you have not developed a taste for hot pepper then use black pepper to replace the red for your chai blend. Turn on blender and blend well. This is your SHRINKER concentrate.
3. Pour the concentrate into a glass, 2 quart size canning jar and fill to the top with ice. If you don’t have a 2 quarter, I recommend you get one as it is fun having your day’s quota of deliciousnes in one huge jar. But you can split your concentrate between two quart size canning jars. You can add a bit of water to the concentrate if needed to make the liquid reach the top of the jar, but do make sure there is plenty of ice to keep the SHRINKER thoroughly chilled.
4. Put a lid on the jar, shake well then taste and adjust flavors. Own it!!!! What do you need to add so it knocks your socks off!! More stevia? More vanilla? I usually add more hot pepper because I like it to burn and make me feel like a feisty tiger!

steffanie3: legal223 it might be better to post a question on the E board for more responses/longer responses

steffanie3: caddaway, I am fairly sure there are mamas with thyroid issues, might be good to post up top and explain if you have current diet restrictions, then we could help with ideas

alicat825: caddaway, I haven't been officially diagnosed but my nutritionist says I have a good chance of having it. THM really helps with it, as long as you balance the S, E, and FP meals. You can't go overboard with any of them
Mar 10, 2014 17:22:08 GMT -5
alicat825: choose which type of meals you are going to eat for each meal. Example: I eat E in the morning, FP snacks, S for lunch, and S for dinner
Mar 10, 2014 17:23:06 GMT -5
alicat825: caddaway, if you notice that your energy levels drop dramatically, try a crossover snack here and there. You will have to find the right balance for you.

tiffany0726: What ingredients do I need to make my own Truvia? I looked at the Homemade Truvia thread, but they used Nustevia I believe BEFORE they changed the formulation. So now that the formulation is different, what do you suggest I use?

tiffany0726: I'm looking into buying this brand: Emerald Forest 5lb Erythritol Sweetener manufactured by 1000 Natural Products. Does that sound like it's a safe brand and such?
Mar 12, 2014 14:59:51 GMT -5
steffanie3: I would get the Now Better Stevia from the sounds of things it is the most popular, hopefully in a short time Serene and Pearl's erythritol and stevia will be available, they are working hard on it
Mar 12, 2014 16:03:53 GMT -5
steffanie3: If you need erythritol now, that brand looks fine, I have only used Smart Sweet because I can get it through a company called Azure that delivers to my area.
Mar 12, 2014 16:06:34 GMT -5
rnjulih: What brand of Stevia would you recommend now to mix with the Erythritol?
Mar 13, 2014 13:38:57 GMT -5
steffanie3: The Now Better Stevia brand is a favorite currently.
