Did you know that it’s possible to be allergic to one common ingredient in egg salad – that is not the eggs?
Most egg salads are made with mustard, and believe it or not there are people who are allergic to mustard! I know, because I have a friend who is allergic to many things and one of those things is mustard.
While I didn’t set out to create a mustard-free egg salad, that’s exactly what happened. So if you or anyone you know would like a flavorful, mustard-free egg salad recipe you’ve come to the right place (and need to share)! (more…)
If you’ve ever had Fathead pizza crust, aka Holy Grail pizza crust, you know what a low carb life-changer that stuff is.
I mean seriously. It’s like eating real, carbolicious, gluten-infested pizza and if you’ve had to forgo that slice of heaven for any length of time this “cheese dough” crust will absolutely astonish you.
If you HAVE had it, you know what I mean. And if you thought it couldn’t get any better I’m about to astonish you once again. (more…)
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.

She’s just kidding around, of course. For the most part. (more…)
I proved in my Salted Caramel Frappe post that you don’t have to give up your favorite frozen coffee drinks when you start THM.
You just need to know how to make them to fit the THM guidelines. And, I discovered, that basic recipe can be tweaked to suit whatever flavor you crave.
Craving something dark chocolate and raspberry-ish? I got you covered with this Dark Chocolate Raspberry Mocha Frappe, my friend. Read on… (more…)
Did you forget to soak your dry black beans again?

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…)
There’s something to be said for simple, can I get an amen?
Busy is the order of the day lately around my house, so a simple-to-prepare Trim Healthy Mama friendly meal makes my heart (and tummy) happy. Low carb tortillas are great for super simple meals. Just put some stuff in them, fold or roll them up and you’re good to go…either straight down the hatch or into the skillet for a few minutes for a deliciously crispy “pocket.”
The stuffing possibilities are endless. You can put a dent in cleaning out the fridge before grocery day and using up leftovers. Garden going nuts? Stuff that baby with fresh veggies and herbs that complement your protein source. You can make yours super spicy, or not. It’s all about you, baby. For just one brief moment, anyway. (more…)
