Do you celebrate St Patrick’s day? We don’t, but we do love one of the traditional foods served during that time — corned beef. Particularly Reuben sandwiches on yummy rye bread. But if you’re gluten free, low carbing, or following THM, rye bread is not an option! The Reuben in a Bowl recipe in the THM cookbook is fabulous, but sometimes you just want a sandwich, can I get a… Continue Reading
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… Continue Reading
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.
Here it is, my first official THM Instant Pot recipe! This amazing kitchen appliance has just stolen my heart. It saves so much time in the kitchen and it’s a forgetful procrastinator’s best friend…you know that chicken you forgot to get out of the freezer? Pop it in the IP and poof, cooked chicken in no time. Dinner is saved and you get to bask in the mmmmm’s and… Continue Reading
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.
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… Continue Reading
I can’t be the only one who runs out of ingredients at the worst possible time, right? Like when your baby boy turns eight. And requests chocolate zucchini cake. And you need to make it Trim Healthy Mama style because his behavior is better that way (and you can eat it too…). And you open the bag of Baking Blend to discover you just don’t have enough. And you need… Continue Reading
For breakfast this morning, I played a game of What’s In The Fridge… You know…the game you play when you didn’t plan ahead and you have no idea what sounds good or what you even have… I rummaged around in there and found some leftover plain, cooked spaghetti squash. I like to cook a spaghetti squash or two to have it on hand for easy sides or meals. Then I threw… Continue Reading
Mister wanted french toast this morning, and I’ll be honest. I didn’t feel like making it. In fact, he specifically asked for coconut flour flatbread french toast, and I had never before concocted such a thing. It sounded amazing, really. It also sounded like a bit more work than what I was feeling up to…being in the throes of a wicked allergy attack lately. I found myself wishing I fed my kids… Continue Reading
When I head to the kitchen, I don’t always know what will happen. Yesterday, this delicious Vanilla Cake in a Mug recipe happened. I love it when something delicious…and easy…happens! It was so tasty I had it for my S breakfast this morning. In case you’re wondering, an “S” breakfast is one with lots of good, healthy fats and very few carbs. I’ve been a very happy and successful Trim… Continue Reading
