Healing Shrinker: You can make this a Healing Shrinker by omitting the nut milk and replacing with ½ teaspoon of Just Gelatin, 1 teaspoon Integral Collagen, 1 teaspoon MCT oil, and an optional ¼ teaspoon Sunflower Lecithin. You will dissolve the gelatin into the mug of hot brewed tea, stir very well, then add to the blender along with the collagen, oil, lecithin, and ½ cup cold water. This makes an ultra-creamy shrinker.

  1. Peel the yellow rind off the lemons using a sharp paring knife, leaving as much of the white pith as possible (bioflavonoids in the pith are a healing component). Slice each lemon into 4 chunks, remove the seeds, and throw the lemon pieces into your blender along with the water. Blend well. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve or nylon mesh bag into a bowl or pitcher. (You can purchase these bags at a paint store inexpensively.) If you are pressed for time, just use the juice of the lemons and don’t worry about the straining.
  2. Pour the strained juice into the blender. Add all the other ingredients except the ice cubes, and blend really well.
  3. Fill a quart jar with ice to the tippy top and then pour the blended lemon mixture over the ice. If it doesn’t reach the top, add remaining water until it does. Put a tight lid on the jar and shake it like you are a professional drink mixer. Uncap and adjust the flavor to “own it.” (Quite a bit of stevia is required to offset the strong tart effect of the lemon pith and turmeric and to balance the salt. If your Canary has too much bite, add more sweetener and/or vanilla and scale back on the turmeric next time.)
Recipe Notes

RECIPE AUTHOR: Serene Allison

This recipe has been formulated for tired, inflamed bodies; each ingredient was chosen to be a powerful adrenal healer. This beverage has no caffeine, it contains only ingredients that together create a delicious ADRENAL REVIVER! It contains 1 teaspoon of adrenal rebuilding, inflammation-fighting turmeric powder.  Certain lemons have stronger flavored pith than others. If you find using all the white from your lemon is causing too bitter a taste in your drink, you can use only the juice from your lemons. You’ll be missing out on the bio flavonoids which make the vitamin C more easily absorbed so make sure to use a buffered, vitamin C ascorbic powder that contains bioflavonoids.


Note for pregnant women - Turmeric is considered safe during pregnancy when consumed as a food. There is some concern that it may possibly stimulate the uterus to cause contractions when used as a supplement however ginger has similar properties and concerns and it is often suggested by doctor’s to treat morning sickness for pregnant women. It is common for 3 teaspoons of turmeric to be suggested as supplement dosage. We think the 1 teaspoon in the Canary is a safer dose for pregnant women as that is the amount that people in India consume on average through food. But, we are not doctors. Each pregnant mama should consult the advice of her physician. If concerned, pregnant women can always reduce the amount of both Turmeric and Vitamin C to 1/4 dose or not drink the full two quarts per day just to stay on the cautious side. The full dose of vitamin C is not recommended for pregnant women.

NOTE: If you’d rather use fresh ginger, blend a good-size nob of the root (about 5 ounces) with ¾ cup water until it is completely broken down. Now add 1¼ cups more water (for a total of 2 cups) and blend well again. Pour into ice-cube trays and place in freezer. When frozen, put the cubes in zippies and store in the freezer. Use 1 or 2 of these ginger cubes in place of the powder in your Good Girl Moonshine.

  1. Crack egg into coffee cup or oven safe ramekin and whisk well with your fork.
  2. Add all other ingredients except optional berries and mix very well with a fork (a mini workout for your arm). Add berries (raspberries or strawberries are perfect), then stir gently into batter. Alternatively, you can leave out berries and use 1 Tbsp of water.
  3. For microwave version, cook on high for only 40 seconds, if using only water. If including berries, it will need closer to 1 minute.
  4. The muffin should still be gooey in the center when you take it out.
  5. Oven versions should take between 8-12 minutes at 350. Take out of the oven before the top of the muffin is completely set.
  6. Add an optional sprinkle of THM Gentle Sweet over top of cooked muffin.

RECIPE AUTHOR: Pearl Barrett

  1. Place the shredded kale into a large bowl and drizzle olive oil over it. Using your hands, gently mix and massage olive oil into kale. This process will slightly wilt the kale and make for a softer leaf.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, mineral salt, and sweetener. Pour over kale and combine well.
  3. Toss in the strawberries and sunflower seeds (or other nuts of your choice) just before serving along side your S meal.

Spinach and Sausage Quiche (S)
This is a beautiful quiche with a wonderfully rich crust. Perfect for taking to a Mother’s Day get-together. Non-THMs won’t have any idea that this recipe comes from a “diet”cookbook. You can skip the crust if you want to make things easier on yourself or use a quick Simple Simon Pie Crust (page 324 of the THM Cookbook), omitting the sweetener, as it requires no pre-baking. Another option for a simple crust is to combine 1 cup almond flour with 1 egg white and bake for 10 minutes to crisp it before filling.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Make the crust. Place the Baking Blend and butter in a food processor and process until well combined, like coarse meal. Add the egg yolks and pulse to mix well. Add the tablespoon cold water and pulse again. You should be able to press the mixture together and have it stick; if it doesn’t, add a little more cold water.
  3. Gather the mixture into a ball and flatten the ball. Put the flattened ball between 2 sheets of parchment and roll out to a large circle if you are using a pie plate or a large rectangle if using a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Remove the top parchment and use the rolling pin to invert the crust into the baking dish. If the crust breaks apart, gently press it back together and press into the pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Let cool briefly to set. Keep the oven at 350 degrees F.
  4. Make the filling. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, sausage slices, spinach, grated cheese, seasonings, and optional ingredients like mushrooms, tomato, and olives. Pour into the crust and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the filling is set.

This is a NSI (No Special Ingredients) recipe if going crustless or making an almond flour crust.

Marla’s Crustless Coconut Pie (S)
Marla’s Crustless Coconut Pie has been an amazing hit with THMs around the globe! Serve this for Resurrection Sunday, Mother’s Day, or any day dessert and even non-THMs will reach for another slice! This is a Trim Healthy Mama Community submitted recipe from Marla Ayatskua who lives in Japan. Marla says: "This recipe was a wonderful accidental discovery. I wanted my grandmother's coconut pie but did not have enough ingredients for a THM crust. So I converted just the pie filling from my grandmother's recipe to THM and baked it without a crust. It turned out so delicious! Non-THM family raved about it. It's quick to mix up and includes ingredients you probably already have on-hand. This is perfect to whip up the day before and take along to an event or just keep it all to yourself! Delicious and totally satisfying! And it tastes just as great a day or two later after it's been in the fridge!"
