No-Bake Christmas Wreath Cookies Recipe

no-bake-christmas-wreath-cookies-betty-crocker-darlene-michaud-recipe

NOTE: I get messages asking me why I post these types of recipes while I’m following a zero carb animal kingdom only food plan.  My answer is because I’m following ZC, but I bet you’re not! Just because I eat a certain way does not mean I have to limit myself to sharing only meat recipes. I’m not the carb police! lol

Be sure you check out Darlene’s Concoctions!!!

No-Bake Christmas Wreath Cookies Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup butter
1 package (10 oz) miniature marshmallows
20 drops green liquid food color
3/4 cup white vanilla baking chips
5 cups Whole Grain Total cereal
56 red cinnamon candies

Darlene’s Tip:  You can experiment with different types of cereal and you can use red frosting instead of candy for the decoration.

DIRECTIONS:

Step 1: In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter uncovered on High 30 seconds to 1 minute or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended.

Step:  2 Stir in green food color to desired shade of green. Add white vanilla baking chips to marshmallow mixture, and stir until melted, microwaving an additional 30 seconds if necessary.
3 Stir in cereal until evenly coated.

Step 4:  Drop 1/3 cup of cereal mixture on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Use greased hands to form into wreath shape. Place 4 red cinnamon candies on wreath to decorate. Repeat with remaining cereal mixture and candies. Refrigerate 15 minutes before serving.

What I Ate Yesterday – Day 21

img_3465-2

REMINDER:  I will be weighing myself for you on January 1st, so don’t forgot to come back for that! I’m not in this for the weight loss, but I know many are curious (me too) so I will be reporting my weight for curious minds!

Yesterday – Wednesday 12/7 – Day 21

Three weeks completed!  How totally quick that went by! Next thing I know, I’ll have been doing this for 3 months, and then who knows, maybe 3 years!  I don’t really look past today. Just going to do it as long as it feels right.

When I got up, I had my daily coffee with heavy cream.

At 3:30pm, I ate the awesome meal you see above. And I ate practically all of it.  I left a bit of meat on the plate.  That egg on top was the leftover egg from my late night meal the night before. And then I have my lovely pat of butter on there too.  You can watch me cook that meat here.

At 9:00pm, I was not hungry, I was not hungry, I was not hungry. Then suddenly, I was hungry!  lol  That’s how it seems to happen for me.  I was actually going to bed early but decided to cook 5 eggs in butter and added more of the lose meat that I made above.  I had quite a big serving. I ate all 5 eggs and almost all the meat that I took.  So yes, that means I had 6 eggs total in one day. That’s quite alright. No worries!

After my meal of meat and eggs, I had about 2 gulps of light cream. I went to bed quite content and woke up early (for my mother’s appointment) and I was able to get up with no headache and a much clearer head than I used to have before I started eating this way. There is hope for me yet!

Food that entered my mouth yesterday:  beef (ground, shoulder roast), pork (tenderloin, bacon), eggs, cream (heavy and light), butter, coffee, water.

You can watch THIS VIDEO to learn why I’m doing this.

This is the facebook group I’m in.  It’s a public group so you can read the posts without joining.

I will be talking about this new way of life often on my Youtube channel, so please subscribe and you won’t miss a thing!

This is the article that I stumbled upon by Kelly Hogan which got me immensely excited.   And this is Kelly’s blog.

PLEASE READ: Please remember that it’s MY CHOICE to eat the way I want. If you think this is unhealthy, know I’m not as concerned with physical health. I’m more concerned with my mental health. I’m on a mission to feel better mentally… without cravings!!! I’m willing to test this so you don’t have to! But what works for me might not work for you. I’m not doing this to lose weight. I’m doing this because I’m convinced that I’m overly sensitive to carbs and that I must stay away from them if there is any chance of me feeling better. I’m eating from the animal kingdom only, like the complete opposite of vegan. I know this upsets many, but I promise I won’t eat your pets. You are free to follow my progress/failures and you can even disagree with what I do. Just remember that I will get the last word because it’s my blog, my channel, my life! That’s the new me talking! (I think I’m growing balls! Let me look… yes, I see one starting to grow!)

Thursday Chat – Heading Out the Door with My Mother!

chat-thursday

Happy Thursday!

I have to be super quick today because my mother has an appointment in Biddeford and we need to head out the door soon.  Why on earth did I accept a morning appointment?  What was I thinking!?!?!

Yesterday I recorded my meat mix that I cooked. I often get asked why so many kinds of meat at once. Answer: It’s what I love.  I’ll be posting what I ate yesterday when I get back from Biddeford.

I know there’s more to tell you, but I need to get out the door.  Catch you later!

Have a great Thursday!

Darlene
XOXO

What I Ate Yesterday – Day 20

Yesterday – Tuesday 12/6 – Day 20

I had my daily coffee with heavy cream when I woke up. I did not feel the need for it, but drank it by habit. I make it very weak now. It’s like my taste buds can’t even tolerate it strong anymore.

At 1:00pm, I ate the vision of beauty that you see above.  I cooked some slices of beef rump roast in butter and left them rare. Then I added some of the loose meat leftovers that I had on hand. T’was quite delish!  I did not eat everything on the plate, but I got pretty close!

At 6:00pm, I cooked about a pound of the ground beef that I picked up at Walmart then I added the what was left from my lunch and warmed that all together with buttah! I had quite a plate full (almost as full as the plate above) and I ate every bit. I also drank the juice that remained. I’m honestly thinking of coming up with a hot bacon grease and butter beverage to drink before bed to warm me up at night. I bet that would be so satisfying!

At 8:00pm, I had a decafe with heavy cream.  I add just a tiny bit of instant coffee now because as I mentioned above, strong no longer tastes good.  Also, I’m trying to get away from it because coffee is a plant and is on the NOT optimal list because some can’t tolerate it, yet some can’t live without it, you know what I mean, jelly bean?  I actually tried just hot water and heavy cream, but it was a bit too blah.  This is why I’m thinking I want to try bacon grease and butter. What a nightcap! lol

At 11:00pm, I suddenly got hungry again!  I was like, what??? With all that meat in my belly?  I really had an appetite yesterday. And the rule is if you’re hungry, you eat meat. As much as you want until satisfied. And it does not matter in the beginning if you are eating out of hunger or habit or because you’re emotional or whatever. If you feel like you want to eat, you just eat. Your body knows what to do with it. So fill it up and let it do it’s thing!

So I got out of bed and cooked 5 eggs and and grabbed the deli ham.  I ate probably 10 slices of deli ham and scoffed down 4 of the eggs. Then I was too full to eat the 5th egg so I put that sucker in a baggie and it’s in the fridge. I plan on eating it with my lunch today. Oh, by the way, eggs are unlimited. Eat as many as you want. If you think that hurts your cholesterol numbers, it doesn’t. Most any doctor will now tell you that eating cholesterol has nothing to do with raising your cholesterol. If your doctor does not know this, change doctors! lol

I just realized that I did not have my nightly gulp of light cream. I think it’s because there was not one tiny bit of room left for cream after my close-to-midnight feast! lol  I woke up filled with energy and no headache.

Food that entered my mouth yesterday:  beef (ground, rump roast), pork (ground, bacon), eggs, deli ham, heavy cream, butter, coffee (reg and decafe), water.

Wednesday Chat – What Did My Doctor Say About My New Meat Obsession???

chat-wednesday

Happy hump day everyone!

Yesterday, I uploaded my Tag Along with Me to Walmart video.  And while sitting in my car after taking you into the store with me, I chatted with you about my doctor appointment that I had the day before.  Want to know what my doctor said about the way I’m eating?  You must watch!

Today, I hope I can just stay put in the house. I really have some cleaning to do. And I woke up feeling quite energetic this morning. Might be the 5 eggs I ate just before bed! lol

In case you are not aware, I document every single thing I eat daily on this blog.  Just look for the posts titled, What I Ate Yesterday.

I might try to cook my squash today.  So hopefully I’ll have a concoction video for you later.  And maybe something else too!  Like I said, I’m full of energy so let the cameras roll!

Have a happy Wednesday!

Darlene
XOXO

What I Ate Yesterday – Day 19

img_3430-4

Yesterday – Monday 12/5 – Day 19

I had my daily coffee with heavy cream when I woke up. Same old, same old.

At 1:00pm, I ate some slices of beef cooked in butter.  I don’t usually eat that early but I had a doctor appointment at 1:45pm and wanted to eat before going out (details about that appointment in Tag Along tonight). I didn’t eat too much as I wanted to feast when I got back.

At 4:30pm, I feasted!  I cooked the wonderful thick pork chops I got at Roger’s in this tag along, one for me, one for my mother. She ate just the pork chop (ummm… only meat? Where’d she get that idea? lol) and I had a lovely side of ground pork, ground beef and bacon ends (photo above).  All cooked in butter.  That’s a juicy sauce made up of bacon fat and butter that the meat is sitting in up above. Not urine. lol  I ate more than half of the chop (using hands only, no knives or forks in the cave) and also a bit more than half of the loose meat. I got full. I saved the rest for later.

At 6:00pm I had a cup of decafe with heavy cream.

At 8:00pm I ate the rest of my pork chop and also more of that loose meat.  I made a big batch of that meat so I can have it when I want.  Ate that cold while sitting in front of the TV. Who needs chips when you have meat!?!  I finished that off with a swig of light cream.

At some point, well after midnight, I grabbed more of the cold loose meat mix and ate until I was satisfied. Had another gulp of light cream and hit the hay like a bear ready to hibernate. Do love!

Food that entered my mouth yesterday:  beef (ground, rump roast), pork (ground, chop, bacon), cream (heavy and light), butter, coffee (reg and decafe), water.

Tuesday Chat – Youtube Earnings for Nov, Tag Along Today, Andy’s Remains

chat-tuesday

Happy Tuesday!

Last night, I uploaded my Youtube Earnings for November!  Wanna know how rich I got?  Go watch! lol

Today, I must hit Walmart for both my mother’s meds and my own.  So, I’ll be taking you in the store with me!  And I think I’ll take the opportunity to talk to you in the parking lot about my doctor appointment yesterday.  I was sooooo scared to tell him what I’m eating!  You’ll have to watch to see how that played out.

And I have an Andy update for you.  His remains are finally in my control.  He’s still in Texas, but the battle I was fighting to collect him seems to be over.  It was very important to me to bring him home where he belongs. I won’t really feel safe until that happens. More on that later.

I’d like to start promoting other Youtubers again!  I was doing that before, and it felt wonderful to help others. But then some rained on my parade and pointed out that I was playing favorites.  Screw them!  I’m gonna do what I want! lol  That will be in a separate post.

Have a great Tuesday!

Darlene
