My new favorite gulity pleaure (and its healthy too!!)

I love peanut butter.  I really love it.  I used to eat it, by the spoonfuls, out of the jar.  I love ice cream with peanut butter in it.  Yum.  I love chocolate covered peanut butter.  My favorite are the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs that come out at Easter time, you know, because they have more peanut butter than the Peanut Butter Cups.


So, I was very excited, when I stumbled upon Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered peanut butter and cholcate powdered peanut butter.  This stuff is truly yummy!!  The nice thing about the powdered peanut butter is that it has only 1.5 grams of fat per 2 TBS serving (compared to 16 grams of fat per 2 TBS serving for all natural peanut butter). 

The powdered peanut butter tastes just like regular peanut butter when reconstituted with water.  It works great in protein cookie recipes and is yummy in protein shakes.  And, as I can atest, be eaten by the spoonful dry! I am really excited to have found this yummy product!  Who knows, it may even help me stay on track for Run With Jess' Weight Loss Challenge!

(I was not paid for this. Bell Plantation did not ask me to write this review . . . . I just love this product!)

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

Yonanas and a yummy protein chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth.  A big sweet tooth.  I blame it on genetics.  My dad loves sweets and I think my grandmother, his mother, subsisted only on foods that contained sugar.  But, when you are working on eating healthy and bringing the whole family along with you, things like ice cream, cookies and cakes have to replaced by something better.

So, when Lena from JOYfilled family posted about the Yonanas she got, I wanted to try it!  Yonanas makes "ice cream" from frozen bananas.  I have heard of making "ice cream" this way before and I have tried it in our blended, but it usually came out quite liquidy.  So, when we got a gift card for Amazon, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy.

I have used the Yonanas several times and I love it!!  The consistency of the "ice cream" is very smooth, light and creamy.  My 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, loves his new "ice cream."  Now, my older boys could not be fooled . . . they immediatel…
