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
There’s nothing better on a cold, dreary day than comfy clothes, a blanket and a steaming hot mug of tea. Herbal teas are wonderful winter companions. Not only are they tasty they also may have many benefits for your health. Making your own Soothing Herbal Tea Blend is a simple task that can help you relax and unwind.
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.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I developed an aversion to red food coloring. If a food was supposed to be red, it didn’t bother me. But red jello made my skin crawl. Looking back, that was a good thing – red dye is really unhealthy. I still kind of get the heebie jeebies over it though, and it confounds me that one of my now-15-ear-old daughter’s favorite foods… Continue Reading
Have you ever had fresh coconut milk? It is truly divine! And if you’re fortunate to live where they grow, you are probably nodding your head. The closest I’ve been to the tropics is…well, never actually. But I’ve had fresh coconut milk from the coconuts in the grocery store, and that beats canned by a mile. And to make this dreamy, Creamy Coconut, Lemon, and Turmeric Shake you want… Continue Reading
So there I was again, stricken with Food Apathy. I needed to eat something, but nothing sounded good. I didn’t feel like making anything, either. How do I keep ending up here, anyway? You know the drill…need something quick and easy…need to be on plan with Trim Healthy Mama. Standing there, staring into the fridge and assessing the possible combinations with the available ingredients staring back at me (because we… Continue Reading
What comes to mind when I say “Tuna Salad”? Maybe bland, mushy-ness sandwiched between soggy pieces of white bread, wrapped in plastic, waiting patiently on the shelf of a convenience store refrigerator (for who knows HOW long)? If that’s the case, you’ll be delightfully surprised with this punched-up tuna salad recipe. It’s a twist on a classic with an ingredient you probably never thought of adding.
Meatballs, without breadcrumbs? Can you DO that? Why yes, yes you can! And, as I discovered today when making these easy grain free venison meatballs, you don’t actually need anything to replace breadcrumbs if you have to eat gluten free. I’ve used oats, leftover quinoa and even psyllium husk as “binders” but really, you don’t even need any kind of breadcrumb-like substance. All you need is
Have you ever been struck by a totally weird thought? One night for supper, I was eating salmon. Out of nowhere, this crazy thought popped in my head – “Man, this salmon would be good with blueberries.” Salmon with blueberry sauce. Wait. What?? I’m not particularly fond of fish but I’ve really grown to like salmon. Salmon with blueberry sauce? Fish…with blueberries? Certainly I had lost my mind. But the… Continue Reading
