I mentioned recently that Clay and I are now following the Trim Healthy Mama eating lifestyle. Between the 2 of us, we have lost over 70 pounds in a little over 6 months. The food is delicious and we have not been deprived of anything tasty! Today, I have a delicious Wild Berry Oolong Sweet Tea recipe for you that incorporates the fat-burning power of Oolong Tea, ginger and apple cider vinegar(ACV) along with Baobab powder and a yummy wild berry tea.
If you’re not a fan of Oolong, this sipper will help cut some of the boldness of that flavor and give you a mild, fruity, sweet tea.
We gave up refined sugar back in March of this year (2018) along with white rice, white flour, regular pasta and bread. Really, that’s about the only things you give up when following THM. And you aren’t deprived because you replace them with a healthy alternative.
For instance, instead of refined sugar, we now use stevia, erythritol, xylitol (occasionally) and some honey for health benefits. Our favorite is a stevia/erythritol blend found at Walmart and Amazon, called [amazon_textlink asin=’B00NI2CTB0′ text=’Pyure’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’crystalmartin-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’c660fb03-c049-11e8-b318-37a84a7c708b’]. Instead of white rice, we use brown rice and brown rice pasta or Dreamfields pasta. We eat bread that has sprouted grains as the first ingredient and also make our own “on-plan” breads using almond/coconut flour, eggs, etc. To thicken sauces, I now use xanthan gum instead of corn starch or flour.
Honestly, the changes haven’t been that noticeable as far as foods go. The texture of baked goods is different but do-able.
One thing that is big on Trim Healthy Mama is the All Day Sippers. These are drinks that do not contain a fuel source, so, no large amounts of carbs or fats. They are called a Fuel Pull. These drinks can be sipped on all day, like water or plain black coffee. This helps us get in our daily fluid amounts without getting bored of plain water.
Each day I’ll drink a Good Girl Moonshine, Boost Juice, Sweetened Tea or Lemonade. I’ll mix the drinks up depending on what I’m in the mood for. And if I want something hot and comforting I’ll do that too! THM has a yummy recipe for TrimQuik chocolate milk, an Apple Pie Sip and Hot Cocoa. See? Not deprived in the least!
One of my new favorite sippers is one I created and named and Wild Berry Oolong Sweet Tea. It uses Oolong tea, Wild Berry Zinger tea, ACV, ginger, sweetener and an incredible ingredient called Baobab powder. This powder contains TONS of fiber and vitamin C and a whole, long list of other things our bodies need.
This drink is super easy to make. You simply brew your tea and stir in the remaining ingredients!
