These Low Carb Lemon Thumbprint Cookies are sweet little bites filled with a delicious sugar free lemon curd. I served them up next to a hot cup of Bigelow Lemon Ginger Probiotics Tea to celebrate hot tea month and the feel better goal accomplishments I made over the last year!
A little more than a year ago I decided that I was going to get healthy and stay healthy and the way I was going to do that was incorporate exercise and healthy eating habits into my life!

Mid-year I decided to go to a low carb lifestyle and that made a huge difference in how I felt! This year, I plan to continue with my lifestyle change and plan to have an improved report for next year. This of course, continues to incorporate the use of my favorite Bigelow Teas!
Last year I incorporated more exercise and changed my eating habits. To date, have lost over 30 pounds and have just recently met 51% of my goal!!
There has been nothing “easy” about it, other than it is easy for me to enjoy the food and drink that I do put into my body. Recipes like these Low Carb Lemon Curd Thumbprint Cookies, paired with a hot mug of Bigelow Tea help to keep me on track and feeling great about myself.
When the temps turn as cold as they have here in New York recently, celebrating hot tea month is even more satisfying! I love my tea and drink it throughout the day whether at home or in the office. I love how drinking hot tea not only warms me up, but it also makes me feel good about myself!
