Here’s a gluten free and nut free ice cream cake recipe.  Last weekend we celebrated our daughters 14th birthday and she had a party with a few of her closest friends but two of her friends had food allergies, one girl is gluten free & another girl is nut free.  So after trying to come up with many alternatives I decided that at an ice cream cake was a good solution.

Fruity Ice Recipe

 Here’s a great way to flavor your water or a cocktail with these fruity ice cubes.

I used my silicone muffin cups and used sliced lemon, lime & frozen raspberries.  Why frozen raspberries?  Well if you ever buy them you’ll always get a bunch of crumbly broken raspberries.  This is a great way to use them other than in a smoothie.

These nice big ice cubes are great for my water bottle too.

Place them in a freezer bag and they’re ready for your next beverage.

Cheers!!!

 

Fitbit Ankle Strap

I love my Fitbit Charge HR & I love doing spin classes, or even doing the stair master but with the Fitbit on my wrist it doesn’t catch all my steps when holding on the handle bars.
So I came up with a solution. 
I bought a Velcro strap for my yoga matt but it was too long.

image

So I cut it  to make it shorter and sewed it back together.

image

Then put my Fitbit Charge HR on my ankle & wrap the strap on. 

Voila!!
