WWBB ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Another Kind of Bread

Low-Calorie bread that you can have slathered in butter if you so desire. :)

My first attempt at this Wonderful White Blender Bread from the Trim Healthy Mama Table cookbook page 242, turned out less than stellar results. ;)

FP Bread ~ Lifeofjoy.meAlthough it did some serious collapsing, it was still edible and good enough that another loaf was desired.

The second time yielded much better results. I also made a batch into buns. They weren’t very large buns but they made some nice hamburgers. I’ll make them again this week to have with the Slim Sloppy Joes.

Brian, Lauren, and Liam were here this weekend and they liked it too. We finished off the loaf I made a few days prior.

It looked really nice and didn’t have that big fold over top that I’ve had on previous loaves and that I’ve seen online of other’s loaves. This time I changed up a few things per other’s experiences on the THM Facebook group, so I think that contributes to the lack of fold over.

I’ll walk you through it, as I make another loaf. (That is my only regret about this recipe, it makes only one loaf instead of two.)

So first up is to get a whole lot of eggs whites. Yes, it is easier to use egg whites from the carton but I cannot pay $3 or even more for a quart when I can get 5 dozen eggs for just $2.08 which turns out to render quite a bit more than four cups. So, I start this (and many recipes) by separating eggs. Thankfully we have animals that love the cooked yolks. ;)

Egg whites in Blender ~ Lifeofjoy.meThe whites go into the blender while I go measure out the other ingredients.

Modified WWBB Ingredients ~ Lifeofjoy.meI measure out the ingredients into a bowl. All the dry in one and the cup of Greek yogurt. Then I run the blender for a minute with just the egg whites and xanthan gum.

Egg whites ~ Lifeofjoy.meAdd the remaining ingredients.

Pour into sprayed straight sided loaf pan.

After it is baked, lay it on its side and keep it in the oven with it turned off for about 10-15 minutes to keep it from falling.Bread ~ Lifeofjoy.meThen put it on a cooling rack on its side to cool some more.

Cottage Berry Whip ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Cottage Berry Whip

A surprising and refreshing snack so good even someone that doesn’t care for cottage cheese (me and my kids) enjoy it! Oh! And it is EASY!

This refreshing treat has only two ingredients and sweetener of your choice. I use an inexpensive food processor to whip it up in a jiffy. :)

I got this recipe from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. They are incredible and amazing! I would never have thought of combining these ingredients but it works.

Put 1/2 cup cottage cheese (use whatever percentage you desire – those on THM will want to use low fat).

Cottage Berry Whip ~ Lifeofjoy.meAdd 1/2 cup frozen strawberries. (You can use whatever frozen fruit you desire, although if you use all blueberries, it will be a bit carby and thus a THM E. We tried using peaches and it was a bit chalky, so we added strawberries and saved it. We also have tried frozen mixed fruit successfully for an E as well.)

Cottage Berry Whip ~ Lifeofjoy.meNext add your sweetener of choice. I went with a doonk of pure stevia extract and half a tablespoon of sukrin: 1. I actually prefer the taste using all sukrin:1 or even xylitol but I have to watch how much I use in a day or I get intestinal discomfort. ;)

Cottage Berry Whip ~ Lifeofjoy.meThat’s it! You may recognize that this is a lot; I made a quadruple batch here to be enjoyed by all four of us.

Blend until smooth. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl once and finish blending.

Cottage Berry Whip ~ Lifeofjoy.meThat’s all there is to it. Serve it right away. Cottage Berry Whip ~ Lifeofjoy.me
