Sometimes my eyes are huge at the grocery store and I buy way too much produce. To keep it from going bad I either freeze it, make smoothies, or my favorite…jellies! The jellies are similar to my healthy gummy bear recipe. It’s just a fun way to eat fruits and vegetables. They are easy to make and perfect for kids or road trips. I like to bring mine to the movies. I’m one of those big-purse people.
You can make these in all different flavors. Just don’t use kiwi; the gelatin won’t set.
In these jellies, I used: *1 cup pineapple, *1 lemon, *1 medium orange, *1 packet Truvia, *1 tsp vanilla, *4 gelatin packets.
If you are making this for kids; sneak in some vegetables! They’ll never know!
-Blend together all ingredients except gelatin.
-After blending, poor the mix into a sauce pan.
-Bring the mix to a boil and remove from heat.
-Pour the boiled mixture back into the blender.
-Add packets of gelatin and blend on high until no chunks of the gelatin remains.
-Add to a tin or kitchen container.
-Place in the refrigerator for approximately 3-4 hours. Or until firm.
Once the jellies have set you can either cut them with a knife (saves so much time) or use a cookie cutter to form fun shapes!
Kids love making them into animals or hearts. Well not only kids, this girl, too!

—- here you go guys!! :) this is the workout I did today.
Go Heavy, Go Hard Tutorial - TheHiit #14 (by charliejames1975)
The exercise for the week is a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session along with a full blown Back workout. Looking below, the Back workout may seem easy, but keep in mind that every single rep is a slow, 3 seconds down and 3 seconds back up. And ladies, please remember that this isn’t just for the guys! You should also be doing these types of workouts. Forget the treadmill!
Start with HIIT and get outside!
- 1 minute walk, 2 minute slow jog (to warm up)
- 10 x 25 yard suicides (30 second rest between each set)
- 12 x 100 yard sprints (yes, that’s sprinting a football field 12 times - 60 second rest between each sprint)
- 2 minute slow jog, 1 minute walk (to cool down)
Back (remember to take it slow, aside from the warmup):
- Active warmup: Wide grip lat pulldowns, 2 x 25; close grip pulldowns, 2 x 25 (keep it light)
- Deadlifts, 4 x 8
- Pull ups, 10 x 10 (60 second rest between each set); note: if you can’t do 10, go til failure or use an assistance machine
- Lat pulldowns, 8 x 10 (alternate wide grip and reverse close-grip; 45 second rest between sets)
- Barbell bent-over rows, 4 x 8
- Close-grip row machine, 3 x 10 and DROPSET on the last set and go until failure (dropset = on last set, drop the weight down 30 - 50% and keep going)
