Sometimes you need an easy, budget-friendly meal right?
For many people, that means reaching for the pasta. But, if you’re a Trim Healthy Mama follower or on a gluten-free diet that’s just not always an option. That’s why I heart spaghetti squash so much. It is so versatile, so good for you, and since it’s cheaper than gluten free pasta it’s good for the budget. Add some dark, leafy green stuff and you’ve got a very healthy dish. This Italian Spinach Baked Spaghetti Squash is an easy, gluten-free, budget friendly dish that fits perfectly into your Trim Healthy Mama menu.

Independence Day usually means BBQs and fireworks here in America.
And celebrating our nation’s hard-earned freedom also means a veritable minefield of off-plan food choices for the Trim Healthy Mama follower. Potato salad, chips, buns for grilled meats as well as sugar-laden desserts can make sticking to our healthy eating plan difficult.
If you’re hosting a party or bringing food to a family cookout, one solution is to make on plan foods that everyone will enjoy. These low-fat BBQ baked beans fit with the Trim Healthy Mama E style meal guidelines without leaving out the flavor everyone else will expect. (more…)

Low carb and corn can never go together, right? WRONG!
A while back, I made In a Jiffy Corn Muffins from Gwen’s Nest and could NOT believe how amazingly delicious they were. And to top it off, those tasty little wonders are FUEL PULL, which means both low fat AND low carb.

If “you are what you eat” comes to mind…yeah, exactly.
But there’s this little secret about corn that I just recently learned, thanks in part to Gwen’s post…and an episode of Good Eats. (more…)
Sometimes, I go out into the kitchen and find zero inspiration.
Zip. Zilch. Nada.
It’s especially aggravating when I’m hungry and need to eat like an hour ago.
Then there’s times when I’m just on a roll, banging out recipes left and right.
Like this past week or so…I’ve posted a delicious Creamy Coconut, Lemon, and Turmeric Shake, an Easy 3 Step Guacamole Recipe, AND I have a few more tasty posts in the process of being crafted. (more…)
