So these are a bit like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups/Eggs. I just made mine round shape. I adapted this recipe from one I found online. It's not exactly like a peanut butter cup but yummy, kid and husband approved, and rich.
1 8 oz package of 1/3 less fat Cream cheese
1/2 C butter
2 Tbsp coconut oil(Louanna brand so it didn't have the coconutty flavor)
1 C Peanut flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
10-12 shakes Nustevia Pure Extract Powder(out of tiny holes)
Combine all ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth and mixed well. Then shape into round patties and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet and freeze for about 20 min. I made 20 patties. I could have made them a little thinner I think and gotten quite a few more.
Make a recipe of skinny chocolate(from THM book). Dip patties with a toothpick to fully cover in chocolate. Then dip a second time. You may want to make a double batch of skinny chocolate as I ran out with about 4 left to be double dipped. Keep in the refrigerator. (I put them in the freezer and a couple hours later I thought we might break our teeth trying to take a bite plus the middle is tastier when creamy and smooth and not frozen).
I hope you all get a chance to try them and enjoy! They are YUMMY!! And they worked out on the first try. I hate to waste ingredients so was very happy they were tasty.
Pearl, I knew about the calories but also just didn't want to have to buy more specialty ingredients as I don't have swerve. So was trying to figure out how to get a drier/creamy not wet texture without powdered type sugar and thought, DUH!, peanut flour and tada recipe created!
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?

lindah60: Hello I am brand new to THM I will take any and all pointers for success, I am also type one diabetic... My book should be arriving any day.

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
May 30, 2015 1:23:56 GMT -5
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

Bec720: Hello, Why am I nervous?! I have tried so many diets in my life. You name it and I have tried it and all of them have worked....for awhile. I can't seem to keep with any program and of course the weight comes back on.

Bec720: when I turned 43 my thyroid tanked, my hormones have not ever been balanced properly. (PCOS at 21yrs) and I have now gained 40+ pounds. I am scared to try and fail again.I am exhausted all day and by 2pm I need a nap or will fall asleep standing- for real

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

alane: I've been on THM for 14 months and there is still a detail or two I am not sure about. The book lists 3/4 c quinoa as a serving limit, yet some of the breakfast recipes have 1 c listed. Can you clarify this for me? Thanks!
