These easy, baked stuffed jalapeno peppers make a great snack or party food. One serving (two pepper halves) falls into the Fuel Pull category for you Trim Healthy Mamas out there. You could have more in an S setting. I wanted to create something that would fit with FP, because I wasn’t very hungry but was craving something spicy (again!) so I used a combination of light cream cheese… Continue Reading
One thing my recent dietary changes has brought about is Learning To Like Foods I Always Thought I Hated. I’m broadening my food horizons these days. I’ve never been a big fan of squash necessarily, but this Savory Roasted Butternut Squash has me rethinking the I Don’t Like Squash thing I’ve claimed for so long. Because it’s really very good. And it’s good for you.
Looking for some great ideas for those Fuel Pull snacks, Trim Healthy Mamas? Since I’ve been on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, I haven’t done a whole lot of Fuel Pull snacks or meals, since they are more restrictive in both carbs and fat. I don’t like restrictions…what can I say? Well, and part of it was that I didn’t want to blow it and end up with something E… Continue Reading
Ever read the labels on your spices? No? You really should. Yesterday I made a very delicious Coconut Chai Muffin in a Mug using a chai spice blend that I had purchased some time ago. Normally, I read labels very carefully. For some reason I didn’t read the label on this particular item. Had I read it first, it would not have come home with me from the store. It had… Continue Reading
It still amazes me that I can eat delicious foods like this Coconut Chai Muffin in a Mug and not be “cheating” on my diet. Although I hate to call the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle a diet. There’s just too much food freedom going on with the Plan for it to be called that “D Word.” This Coconut Chai Muffin in a Mug is full of healthy fats and fiber…. Continue Reading
Did you like my Sriracha Deviled Eggs? Let’s not stop there! Sriracha Egg Salad is great for when you want deviled eggs but don’t want to do all the work. Let’s face it, some days that’s just too much effort. Just bein’ real, folks. Life gets busy and crazy sometimes and we’ve got to go with the flow. That’s exactly how this Sriracha Egg Salad came about, actually. I mentioned… Continue Reading
Like I mentioned in my Spicy Sour Cream Sauce post, I’m loving hot and spicy foods these days. Sriracha sauce gets liberally applied to just about anything. So why not make deviled eggs a bit more true to their namesake? Like, make them Sriracha Deviled Eggs and make them hot and spicy! I’ve recently updated this recipe, too and it’s even more amazing.
The older I get the more I’m loving spice in my foods. I mean the kind with heat. The hotter the better! My family thinks I’m getting a little loco in the cabesa but whatever. They don’t eat the spicy stuff so there’s more for me, it’s working out pretty well actually. Like this Spicy Sour Cream Sauce that I made for Taco Night this week…I didn’t really want to… Continue Reading
Have you read the ingredients on a bottle of salad dressing lately? Holy cow…since when do you need over 20 ingredients for something as simple as a vinaigrette? Yikes! Especially if some of those ingredients are artificial colorings and preservatives. No thank you. I’ll make it myself, thank you very much.
I got in trouble today with my bestie. She just happens to also be my bloggy mentor, so when she “gets on me” about something, I do my best to follow her advice. What did I do? Well, it was more what I wasn’t doing. If you use YouFood (formerly TwoGrand), you know what a great tool it is to keep track of your meals. It’s especially helpful for my Trim Healthy Mama… Continue Reading
