This is the one. The best recipe in my collection—and the most versatile. You can put this Triple Berry Sauce on anything! I’m serious, if you follow any of my social media channels, you will see (and understand) that I am truly addicted to this stuff. When I tell you this is always in my refrigerator, I’m not even kidding. I use this stuff on ice cream, on cakes, brownies, my Cherry Chocolate Chip bread, fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese, pudding, mixed with a dollop of fat-free cool whip, PB&J, and honestly, who am I kidding, I eat it right out of the jar. Are you getting a clear picture? AND I haven’t even started on what this does for smoothies and dare I say margaritas?! I’m telling you, if you don’t make this for your next dessert, you will be so very sad.

I developed this recipe quite by accident. I was trying to make a blueberry sauce for a lemon blueberry loaf by Drizzle Me Skinny. I was making it for a small dinner at a friend’s house (mainly because I wanted to enjoy a dessert that was in my point range). I didn’t have enough fresh blueberries, but I did have some fresh strawberries and a bag of frozen berries that included strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Now,  my philosophy has always been, use what you have, that’s what I did; the result was nothing short of amazingly delicious and I think that was the precise moment I dubbed myself a culinary genius.

This deliciously sweet versatile sauce is everything you would want in a sauce, but is it really a sauce or is it a jam or a compote?? Who cares! It’s delicious, it’s saucy, enough to be used as a syrup, but stiff enough to stand up to a PB&J, and give jelly a run for its position in the classic PB&J sandwich. It is the perfect fruit on the bottom yogurt companion and adds a delicious dessert-like twist to cottage cheese. I really could go on and on, because when I tell you I’m addicted to this, I really mean it. I use it every. single. day. Now let’s get to the use what you have part. I will only say this once, or twice maybe, so listen up. You can make this with any berries (or fruit) you happen to have on hand, or cherries, or mango, or peaches, or pineapple…are you getting it? I like a mix, and I always add at least one berry species. My favorite mix is cherries, blueberries, and strawberries. Usually, when I throw in other fruit, it already has three berries in it. So it really becomes a Triple Berry Cherry or Triple Berry Peach sauce or just a fruit sauce. I think you understand what I’m trying to say though, this is a recipe you can make your own—and don’t be afraid to get creative.

There are several things you should know about this recipe:

  • I use Swerve Brown Sugar Replacement (affiliate link) exclusively in this recipe. I used to use a mix of Swerve granulated and Swerve Brown, but I prefer it with brown sugar. BUT any sweetener you choose will work. If you prefer to use real sugar it would work perfectly well, however, it will affect the nutritional values listed in this recipe.
  • Use whatever fruit and berry combination you have on hand, I promise you it will be delicious. Ok, maybe not bananas…oh, but you could use the sauce over top of bananas that are on top of frozen fat-free cool whip.
  • When you cook this the fruit will condense to about half of its original volume. You can use the spoon or a masher for a smoother consistency.
  • You can serve this over stuff WARM; highly recommend!!
  • There are endless variations on optional flavoring. It’s perfect as it is, but for a more complex and fancy flavor try one of these:
    • a pinch to a 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (before cooking)
    • a few slices of fresh habanero or jalapeno (before cooking and then removed)
    • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (after cooking)
    • fresh mint leaves (after cooking)

Now go to your kitchen and forage some berries to make this sauce! You won’t be sorry!

  • 1 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Combine the berries, sugar, and water in a small pan, over low-medium heat, dissolve the sugar into the mixture.

    Do you like to lick the bowl? You will be doing that with this recipe. The Triple Berry Sauce is SUPER easy to make and is fantastic by just following the recipe. I have added it to plain yogurt and it is even better than store bought flavored yogurt. I am going to make another batch with mix berries and cherries! Thank you for the great recipe.

My daughter asked me to get her chicken McNuggets while I was out today. 

Can I just say, going through the drive-thru when you're hungry is hard. But I haven't had McDonald's (other than an Egg McMuffin a time or two) since 2019. And I wasn't going to start today...although I do plan to try the strawberry shortcake McFlurry before it's gone! But that's another post!

I decided to ask for a few extra sauces (my favorite is Hot Mustard) and came home to make my own copycat nuggets.

I wish I could take the credit for this piece of culinary genius, but I found the recipe while scrolling Instagram--it was a reel, so I'm not sure who it was!

Copy Cat  Chicken McNuggets
Serves 1 (12 nuggets) 
4 WW Points 
443 Calories 

12.5 oz can Kirkland Canned Chicken, drained
1 egg
65 grams 75% Reduced Fat Cabot Cheddar
1 tbsp grated parmesan 
Seasoning of your choice, I used some spicy ranch seasoning.
Avocado Oil cooking spray 

Preheat oven or airfryer to 400.

1. Mix all ingredients well, shape into nuggets (I got 12 out of this), place on pan spritzed with avocado oil cooking spray, then give them another quick spritz.

2. Air fry or bake 25 min or until golden and crispy, turning them over halfway through. I use the air fry function on my Ninja XL oven. 

I enjoyed these with my favorite McDonald's nugget sauce!

As a side note, the point/nutritional values will be different depending on the cheese you use.

I stumbled across an old journal entry from late 2020. And boy did I need the reminder.

I thought I'd share just in case any of you needed a reminder too:

"Transformation is a process. It takes time, and patience. Sometimes you're gonna hit it on all cylinders, and sometimes you're gonna struggle. In either case the requirement is to show up, and do the best that you can."

Don't ever underestimate your own wisdom, because most times the only expert you need is looking back at you in the mirror.

I had a bad hair day.. 

I was letting my hair grow because, for like a minute I was loving it long--and then yesterday on a whim I decided that I didn't. 

I sent a quick text to @nikitajohns, the best hairstylist ever, and a few hours later my hair was four inches shorter, my bad hair day was over, and I was ready for spring!

The moral of the story is: making a change doesn't require over thinking--just do it!

My eyes have been bothering me off and on for a few days, I figured it was just a Sjogrens flare, until this morning when I woke up with sore, red, goopy eyes.

So I scheduled a quick video visit with my doctor...
and the winner is:

Bacterial Conjunctivitis (aka) Pink Eye!!

I'm getting some antibiotic drops, but spam me with your best home remedies to soothe sore, achey eyes 👀!

Happy Sunday! 

I don't know about you, but this spring ahead thing has got me all messed up!

I mean, I know it's only an hour but man I feel like I missed half the day!!! 😳

I will not be live on Facebook this evening as I'm getting ready for a quick trip tomorrow and Tuesday. BUT, I still wanted to share the recipe I talked about last week. It's one of my faves and it comes together quickly!!

I especially love fennel and apples together, but it is equally delicious without the fennel. If you skip the fennel (which I do not recommend) just add an additional cup of broccoli slaw mix.

Apple Crunch Slaw
6 servings 
1sp 
75 calories 

3 c broccoli slaw
1 c fennel sliced thin
2 apples julienned, shredded, or chopped
2 tsp Fruit Fresh (sprinkled on apples to keep them from browning)
DRESSING
1/2 c nonfat greek yogurt 
2 tbsp Light mayo
1 tbsp dijon mustard 
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 packets Truvia Sweetener 
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp celery seed

Toss slaw and fennel together. Sprinkle apples with fruit fresh and toss together, add to slaw mix. Whisk all dressing ingredients until smooth and uniform, pour over slaw and toss well until coated. #myww #weightlossjourney #wwcommunity #bigfatskinnysalads #eatmoresalad

Happy FriYaY-Weigh! So far this month my weight has not budged--I've been maintaining, which is (arguably) good, but my goal is to lose. 

And there it is,  my weekly struggle between gratitude and disappointment.

With that said, I choose gratitude. These two pictures are almost four years apart. I've come an incredibly long way, and am proud of all that I've overcome.

I am well aware of the work that is yet to be done, but for today, I am choosing to celebrate where I am right now and the strength and courage it took to get here.

What wins are you celebrating today?

Taking care of others can be both challenging, and exhausting.

Which is why making my own care a priority is  absolutely essential. You know, the put your own mask on first thing...and I wasn't very good at it for more years than I can count.

I have always been a supplement skeptic, but have since learned that (much like in life), sometimes a little bit of support goes a really long way.

In addition to eating well, moving, tracking, drinking my daily water, and getting plenty of sleep, I take supplements for:

👉 Hormone and Mood Support
👉 Stress and Weight Management Support
👉 Gut Health Support
👉 Inflammation and Autoimmune Support 

While I know that taking a few supplements will not solve all my health issues, or make me magically thinner, I do know what a difference they have made for me on my health journey.
