Peanut Brittle Recipe THM S

Peanut Brittle Recipe THM SAre you afraid to try the new sipper? I was! I mean bell pepper in a drink! In general I don’t really care for bell peppers. Why would I want to drink one? Well, I made it this evening, and you can read all about it under Second Snack.

September 17:

Breakfast:

This morning I had some lemon poppyseed muffins from yesterday. I heated two for 30 seconds in the microwave. Cubby wanted one so I gave him a bite and he stole it from me. I gave JD a bite also, and it turns out he doesn’t care much for lemon like his dad. So I heated up one more (15 seconds) for me, and I drank a Ready Nutrition Protein Water from Costco. (They keep selling out of these so keep looking.) 

Lunch:

We were at my sister’s house for my nephew’s birthday party. She had pizza for the party. So my mom made us THMrs a cheese crust pizza. I do not have the recipe, but it’s awesome! I also had salad with Ken’s Light Northern Italian salad dressing. This is one of my favorite salad dressings.

For dessert we enjoyed some Halo top peanut butter cup ice cream while everyone else had cake and sugar filled ice cream.

Snack:

Nectarines are like candy to me lately so that’s what I had for my snack. I didn’t have any protein with it though, oops. 

Second Snack:

Beet KvassI managed to go grocery shopping today! YAY So I spent a few hours this evening doing meal prep chopping peppers and other veggies and freezing them.

I also made the Beet Kvass (p.461) because it intrigued me. Really, I don’t have much hope that I will actually like it, but I have to try it. The ruby sparkler (p.458) drink in the book that includes it looks good though.Beet Kvass

So to the eating part. It was actually dinner time, but I was full still (again). This is when I decided to try the new sipper, Hello Health (p.452). It’s not bad. It does have bell pepper flavor, but it seems to work somehow. I recommend blending the pepper before you add the extra cup of water. Mine has some chunks. I made it exactly as the recipe says to do and blended and blended. Almost strained it, but that was more work. (I did not add the optional jalapeno, but I did add the optional orange extract.) I think I might like it… I’ll let you know after I have it a few more times.Hello Health Sipper

This is when I decided I should probably have some protein. Since I wasn’t hungry I grabbed some of my “Peanut Brittle” that I like to keep on hand in the freezer and called it good.

Peanut Brittle – S

In small pot over medium low heat, melt butter, sweetener, coconut oil, and peanut butter. Once everything is melted including gentle sweet (no gritty texture) remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients except nuts. I like to use a whisk to insure everything is well mixed. Add in peanuts and mix again. Let cool then pour into freezer gallon bag. Lay flat and smush everything to about 1/8″ thick. Lay flat in freezer. Once frozen break up to eat.

For variations you could change type of nuts or do a mix, add lily’s chocolate chips, and/ or add chia seeds.

Dinner: 

When I was finally hungry I heated up some leftover Spicy Mac & Cheese
