Happy 4th of July!
My friends and I planned a BBQ at the park :)
I made a fruit salad:
and I also tried a new recipe from Healthy is Happy: Sugar free Coconut Truffles
I used Truvia as the directions called for erithrytol, but I had a really tough time working with it! As soon as I added it to the other ingredients, it crystallized and formed huge chunks of sugar.
They were super pretty, but tasted extremely chemical-y for some reason...I think I will try them out with regular sugar next time. They definitely have potential! So, I didn't end up bringing these to the party.
I dressed up in red, white, and blue for today's holiday :)
Pardon the mess in the background- I was working on a paper for my Career Counseling class before the BBQ!
How did you celebrate America's Birthday?
