Well Wooo Hoo!! I really wanted a frappuccino today and i was reading a new book i got called Trim Healthy Mama and came across a recipe called “Fat Stripping Frappa” so i thought i would revise it some and make it mine! and while its not as sweet as an actual frappuccino from Starbucks its the closest i have ever gotten and tomorrow i will make another one and add a little more sweetener and see what that gets me yay!! OK so heres what i did
- 1/2 cup of almond milk (i used sweetened, the book calls for unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup of strong coffee
- 1 Tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon glucomannan powder (i will not use this next time i do not like the texture)
- a pinch of sea salt
- a few sprinkles of nustevia pure white stevia extract powder (not sure i will use this either i really don’t like fake sugars)
- dash of vanilla
- about 30 ice cubes
- 1/2 tablespoon of sugar in the raw (the book does not use this)
- 2 scoops of balance complete (the book calls for 1 scoop of whey powder)
and then blend blend blend!!! YUMMMMMM i also added some whipped cream to the top
next time i will add a full tablespoon of sugar in the raw and see how that is!!
Since i have alot of people ask me how i used young livings slique kit i decided it was time to do a blog post about it to save me the time of rewriting the same story all the time so here we go..
In January of 2012 i was 8 months postpartum (with Kora) and was very unhappy with all my weight gain i was about 178 so i decided to try body by vi even though i hate soy with a huge passion and after 2 weeks i had lost some weight but i also lost about 90% of my breast milk so Kora was not getting enough and i was freaking out eating oatmeal, overdosing on water and nasty mothers milk tea and noting was helping.. so my friend Kim suggested i try young livings fennel oil and sent me some links to read about it building up your supply.. so i ordered it and chose the fast shipping which still took about 4 days to get to me but the minute i got it i rubbed it on my chest and then drank a few drops and within about 2 hours i could tell it was helping so i did this for a couple days and then i was done and no longer needed any help!! Me and Kora are very thankful for Kim telling us about fennel oil!! But anyways.. after that i decided i had to try something else and i saw the slique kit on the young living website and went back and forth on whether i wanted to get it since it was so expensive.. but i finally caved when kora was 13mts old in june 2012 (still breastfeeding though) and got the kit and this was the older kit with the NingXia Red and Essentialzymes-4 but i did not give it 100% because i was scared about what happened on body by vi.. but i did drink a smoothie everyday and took the vitamins and drank the red but the tea i had issues with.. so that happened maybe once a week.. and i did this for 2 months and lost about 10-13 lbs and down to about 165 which was nice but i still was not happy.. i took 2 months off of dieting and gained 5lbs back and was back to 170 so i decided to really give the slique kit a shot in October 2012 and this was the new kit that they have now with the slim caps, gum, balance complete, tea, and oil and did everything right i drank the smoothies in the mornings took the slim caps an hour before lunch and dinner then drank the nasty tea 15 minutes before meals chewed the gum when i was starving and it was not time for a meal or snack i also worked out about 2 times a week… and i lost 18lbs in that month so i was down to 152 and my milk never changed!!! i am personally not buying the kit anymore since i do not like the tea but i am still using the slique products i take 1 pack of the slim caps before dinner every night and i drink a balance complete smoothie either for breakfast or lunch and i put lemon, lime and slique oil in my smoothies.. i also drink 2-3 oz of NingXia Red a day and take Essentialzymes-4 twice a day after my bigger meals.. i have now as of February 2013 gotten down to 144 so thats another 8lbs lost.. i am still working on losing weight now and want to get down to about 125-130 so i still have 14-19lbs to lose but is quickly going away and i am getting healthier by the day! i can’t wait to come back and add that i have lost all my extra weight!! if you have any questions please ask i just wanted to document this for me and for others that have asked me what luck i have had with slique products!
Well Now I really think i am losing my mind i had a huge blog post all written and “saved” and then it shows up as 2 pictures of brain power… NOT COOL… not cool at all….
So anyways.. Lately i really feel like i am losing my mind and it got me thinking.. I wonder if there is an oil for that?? I mean i have a growing daily list of things i am missing, currently its my external hard drive, my kindle charging cord, my social security card, and lastly Koras new Mario cloth diaper! And why do i need these things.. well i need the hard drive to get all my pictures and pdf files off my computer because its moving soooooo slow, which makes me think bad thoughts like getting a hammer and smashing it till its noting.. lol… and then my kindle charging cord needs to be found because i need to change my kindle so i can read the new book i just bought!! So ask me what i did?? any guesses?? ok i’ll tell you i downloaded the kindle for pc on my computer and guess what my computer is moving even slower.. i’m not even sure how that’s possible!!! And then its my social security card well i need that to get a new military id and since mine expired i have to have 2 forms of id to get a new one grrrrrr…. and lastly Koras diaper needs to be found so i can wash it and gets some super cute pictures of her in it!! So yeah all that got me on a search for a good memory boosting oil and i found brain power
From the Young Living website Brain Power™ gives your brain a boost with essential oils that are high in sesquiterpenes. Use it to clarify thought and develop greater focus.
Ingredients: Sandalwood (Santalum album), Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica), melissa (Melissa officinalis), frankincense (Boswellia carteri), blue cypress (Callitris intratropica), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum).
And i found this cute testimony on brain power that makes me wonder if i just inhale this oil if i will remember where all my junk is and if cody will start getting a’s on his spelling tests lol
