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.
My mom would be horrified to see me publishing a mushroom recipe.
I can hear her now…
Daughter, I thought I raised you better than that!
She’s just kidding around, of course. For the most part. (more…)
Did you forget to soak your dry black beans again?
I’m sure that never happens to you, but just in case I’m going to share my secret for making homemade Chili Lime Black Beans in about an hour – using dry beans. That’s right…from dry to delicious in about an hour with no soaking. (more…)
Need a great way to use up leftovers?
Enter the frittata. Super simple. Endlessly forgiving. Can hardly go wrong with it, truly. And when you’re blessed with an abundance miscellaneous leftovers and fresh eggs from your lovely backyard hens, it’s a terrific budget stretcher and egg-user-upper. (more…)
Hot weather leaves you wanting something cold to eat with minimal effort, right?
You sure don’t want to be slaving over a hot stove when satan’s armpit is hovering over your area. Easy, cold salads are hot summer weather necessities! If you get tired of egg salads, tuna salads, chicken salads, or ham salads there’s probably a couple of reasons why. (more…)
Ever take a bite of something and find yourself instantly transported back in time?
To a moment in time? To an era long left behind? Some food you forgot about, maybe? Or maybe you never knew the recipe because your friend’s mom made it and you never asked her for it.
Because when you’re 10 you don’t really think about stuff like recipes. You just know that you can go across the street to your friend’s house and her awesome German mom will have that yummy stuff in the fridge. (more…)
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…)
Sometimes, you just want something rich, creamy and decadent, right?
It’s even better when it comes together in less than five minutes. And it’s sugar free. This super easy Decadent Salted Caramel Whip is just that.
It’s also wonderful for breakfast (just make sure you have some protein!). And if you can wait long enough to freeze it a bit, it would probably be absolutely divine half frozen.
I don’t see that happening in my kitchen, to be honest. (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.
Low carb?? How can that possibly be? It’s got CORN in it. We all know corn is starchy and fattening, which is why farmers feed their beef cows corn – to fatten them up before shipping them off to market.
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…)
