THM E (light E)
6:30 PM – Coconut Lime Chicken Legs (from my new Freezer Cooking post) and ranch green beans. 2 Squares of a Bake Believe Bar.

A Note About My Coffee
Coffee. Glorious coffee that gets me up and moving in the morning.
I don’t necessarily follow the THM rules for coffee (among other rules that I sometimes break). I’m telling you this so that you have an understanding of how things work for me. Not to necessarily encourage you to do it the way that I do.
But to encourage you to try THM, even if you need coffee an hour or so before you eat. I add so little creamer that even when I eat an E meal, it doesn’t push me into a XO.
So I choose to enjoy my mornings with a cup of coffee and my laptop before the kids get up. It brings me joy so I do it!
