Single Serve Low Fat PB Spread

I love peanut butter, but I don’t always love the fat content. I also like the flexibility of making this spread on demand so that it does not get eaten through by my kids before it is used for its intended purpose.

3 ingredients. 5 minutes. You’re wecome!

Measure 3 flat Tablespoons of Defatted Peanut Powder. Break up the big lumps of powder with the back of your spoon, add sweetener and mineral salt, and mix a bit. Add 3 Tablespoons of water and mix until smooth.

*Depending on the brand of Peanut Powder you may need to add a touch more more, by the teaspoon full, until it is the consistency you desire.

*This is a fuel pull or E meal protein source on the trim healthy mama plan

Maca-B Drink

As I write this, we are in day 5 of Hanukkah.

This is our family’s second observance of this Jewish holiday, but we are not Jewish. If you wan to know more about why we observe biblical feasts you can find that here, and here is a book we find very helpful in explaining the how and why.

Two days ago I was thinking about supplements that I wanted to use more of to support my body, and specifically to help enrich my milk supply while I am exclusively breast feeding our 7th child.

Those supplements are Maca Powder and Beet Root Powder.

Both have many benefits, and I enjoy the flavors, but could they go together?

It was worth a shot!

My husband, though skeptical of some of the things I ask him to try, actually tried my science experiment and really loved it!

It was a miracle, he drank the equivalent of half a beet and didn’t know it!

If you know anything about Hanukkah, then you know the Maccabees were the people who are the heroes in the story, and the ingredients in this drink…I just couldn’t help myself but to make it a play on words!

1 1/2 Cups Boiling Water (optional: steep this with a Raspberry Zinger tea bag before blending)

1/4-1/2 teaspoon Beet Root Powder(start small and work up)

1 teaspoon Maca Powder

1/4 teaspoon Sunflower Lecithin

1/8th teaspoon Pure Monk Fruit Extract Powder or Pure Stevia extract powder, from here or here.

2 teaspoons gelatin powder

1/4-1/2 teaspoon MCT oil or Coconut Oil

1 flat teaspoon whey or egg white protein powder(Dairy free option) powder for froth and creaminess.


Add all Ingredients to your blender, and blend until slightly frothy. If you want a frothier product, add 1 teaspoon Whey protein or Egg White protein powder while the blender is running as the egg white powder will scramble if added to hot things without it running (ask me how I know).

This drink is a Fuel Pull on the Trim Healthy Mama plan so I can enjoy it more often, dairy free compatible (omitting the whey powder if you are using it for creaminess), and obviously gluten free to make it compatible with our family’s needs.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Indian Cabbage Curry

This recipe was literally born of my desire to make use of a large amount of Garam Masala spice we had in the cupboard, not to mention I love Indian inspired flavors!

I had just a few ingredients to make use of and I gave it shot, but my husband only tolerates cabbage because they are not mushrooms, which he dislikes more, and if I could win him over I knew it would be blog-worthy!

He LOVED it!

And, with 9 humans to cook for every single meal, I love anything that will help me do that quickly, and with one pan. This recipe ticks all the boxes in the Treehouse.

  • 1 medium to large head of cabbage
  • 2 pounds ground meat *See note below
  • 1 can coconut milk *See note below
  • 2 Tablespoons Garam Masala
  • 1 Tablespoon Mineral Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder, we like to buy our spice from here.
  • 2 teaspoons Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric Powder


  • Cook Ground Meat and drain fat, and add spices. Cook a few minutes.
  • Cut cabbage to your preference, I diced mine because of toddlers and early eaters
  • Add cut cabbage to the pan, and let cook down a few minutes.
