30 Day Accelerated Testimony: “Hi Maria, I’ve seen so many testimonies I thought it was time to share mine. I purchased the 30 day accelerated program and I’m rounding out my final week. Other than losing about 13 pounds I have noticed the biggest shift in the inches I have lost since I started my new approach to the food I consume.

Though I did not take measurements (kicking myself for not doing it!) I have received compliments and can see the biggest difference in how my clothes fit. I attend Pilates classes weekly and my instructor cannot stop raving about the positive body shifts and more strength she has seen this month. I’m doing things a month ago I never would have been able to attempt!

I have also experienced mood stabilization after being in a fairly deep depressive state for too long-and my family has benefited from this more than I have. I am getting longer and better quality of sleep and my focus is better at work. I have also noticed my body healing in ways I did not expect.

I had been chemically “treating” a planter wart on my right foot for at least 2 years, and last week after no treatment at all for at least 3 months I noticed the entire wart just fell out. It was almost unbelievable. I injured my left foot in 2009 and suffered from intermittent pain and swelling at the location of the injury. I noticed this weekend that the foot had not bothered me at all in a long time and the scar’s redness had faded quite a bit.

Now, I tend to be a skeptical person, especially when reading testimonies and things such as that, but I am seeing and feeling the positive changes in my life and that it motivation to continue commitment for a better me! Thank you!” Cassie

Are you a Super-Taster?

My son Kai is a super-taster. If you are someone who really despises things like diet soda (not that I’m recommending it) but there are certain people who are known as “super-tasters.” My son Micah loves my treats but for Kai, I had to experiment a bit to get him to like certain things. One trick I use (as well as many other blog readers) is blending natural sweeteners. I don’t mind the taste of stevia glycerite (which is a non-bitter and thick honey-like stevia), but for Kai, I have to blend that, with Swerve and lo han go. Some of my favorites like stevia glycerite can be found on sale HERE.

 I made SO much of my Homemade Cinnamon Ornament recipe I had a ton extra so I gave it to my amazing friend Rebecca and she is such an artist she created this masterpiece!

NOTE: The recipe below is for construction only, I do not recommend eating the sugary icing:)

Gluten Free Gingerbread House
Prep time
Total time
  • 3 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 lb. confectioners' sugar (if not eating), use Swerve if consuming
  • ½ tsp. cream of tartar
  1. Combine ingredients; beat at high speed for 7-10 minutes. Yields less volume than royal icing made with meringue powder.
  2. Royal icing is a hard drying icing. Please keep covered with a damp cloth. Humidity will greatly affect the texture of the icing. This makes excellent "glue" for gingerbread houses. Fats will greatly affect this icing so make sure to use clean and dry utensils.

  • Finally, something I can use to get rid of all the excess sugar in the house.

    Rebeccas work is clearly professional!!! If not she should be . LOVELY !!!!

  • Wenchypoo says:

    My husband (just like his mother) is also a hyper-taster (well, hyper-olfactory). He can smell and taste things I cannot–I guess he’ll be the one to save me from eating bad food!

  • Susan says:

    What a creative, beautiful design…

  • Monica says:

    What is lo han go?

  • Janine says:

    Sorry to get off topic…but I have recently discovered that dairy is responsible for my skin issues. My face breaks out(especially my chin) & I get rash type symptoms on other areas of my body. I’ve cut back dramatically. What are your thoughts on ghee in regards to this??

  • momof8 says:

    Maria -What is your suggestion for a flour alternative? I love almond flour and can’t stand the taste of coconut flour. I have a kid with salicylate problems and he can’t tolerate almond flour. I need something else now for baking. What is the next best alternative, even if it is higher in carbs. I will keep using almond flour for most of the family….any ideas please.. I don’t want to stop baking for him. I have all your books and love them …this salicylate problem has thrown me for a loop….

  • Monica says:

    I also have a super taster in the family. When you use stevia glycerite, swerve and lo han go, what is the combination of each. Also, which lo han go do you recommend? You have a few on your site.? Thanks

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      It is really a taste thing. I add a couple drops stevia (depending on how much sweetness is needed), some Swerve or erythritol and some lo han. It makes a much more balanced sweetness. How much of each is really personal preference. All the lo han products on my astore are good option. 😉

  • Candace S. says:

    I like the idea of blending sweeteners – I will definitely try that! I am so sensitive to tastes I’m right there with Kai!
