Want to eat healthier but feel like you don’t have time? You’re going to love this round up of healthy meal ideas perfect for THM!
It’s easy to get stuck in the trap of thinking healthy meals have to take a lot of time.
That fast and convenient food can’t be good for you.
But I’m here to say there are so many simple meal ideas that are healthy and taste great too!
After all, life gets busy.
So today I’m sharing some of my favorite meal ideas you can throw together in a jiffy.
And you don’t have to give up your goals for eating healthy.
Some of these meals are great for a low carb lifestyle.
And others include healthy carbs because Trim Healthy Mamas don’t have to give up any food groups.
Well, it’s not a diet.
It’s a healthy lifestyle.
Here’s a link for the THM Plan book that teaches you the basics if you’re interested in learning more!
The best part?
I never felt like I was on a diet.
And I’ve continued eating this way since 2016, even though I’m at my goal weight and size.
But let’s get back to those healthy meal ideas!
Some of these meals come together super quickly because I follow these three tips for easy meal preparation.
For your convenience, I’ve included what kind of fuel each meal is if you follow THM.
If you follow another low carb lifestyle, any meal marked THM S or THM FP will work for you!
Quick THM Breakfast Ideas
Here are nine of my favorite grab and go kinds of breakfasts. I’ve included what type of THM meal each option is to make it even easier for you!
THM E meal Add some sweetener to plain nonfat Greek yogurt and top with sliced berries and a serving of Ezekiel granola cereal.
THM E meal Sliced sprouted bread spread with a light laughing cow cheese wedge and topped with clementines. Add collagen to your coffee or tea for more protein.
THM Deep S Meal Scramble leftover veggies (this is green bell peppers, mushrooms, and a few onions) with eggs. Two frozen turkey sausage patties cooked in the microwave while the eggs cooked.
THM FP meal Plain nonfat Greek yogurt with sweetener to taste topped with fresh berries and a Tablespoon of toasted oats. I keep toasted oats on hand in a small mason jar just for this!
THM E meal Sprouted toast topped with laughing cow cheese (one wedge per slice) and sprinkled with everything bagel seasoning. Add in some mini bell peppers and a clementine for variety. Put collagen in your coffee or tea for more protein.
THM S meal I love these frozen egg white veggie frittatas that I get from Costco!
This entire plate is cooked in the microwave for four minutes.
The broccoli is from a bag of precut broccoli, also from Costco.
The frozen chicken sausage links are another Costco find.
If you’re into meal prep, you could easily make these frittata cups yourself!
THM S meal These egg bites are another Costco find, but I’ve seen them in a lot of stores recently.
They’re basically a knock off of the Starbucks sous vide eggs.
Steam some precut broccoli for a healthy breakfast.
THM E meal Overnight oats are one of my favorite easy breakfasts!
I mix up a batch of this pumpkin spice recipe and have breakfast ready for four days in under 5 minutes!
THM Deep S Adding sliced deli ham and leftover grilled veggies to some scrambled eggs for a super fast, super healthy breakfast.
You could even cook them in the microwave!
Fast THM Lunch Ideas
Lunch is often leftovers from dinner, which is always a fast meal.
But some days I want something different.
Most of these ideas pack and travel well, and only one requires access to a microwave.
You can always swap out the veggies shown on my plates for your favorites!
THM E meal I love brown rice cakes! Here I spread them with a wedge of laughing cow cheese and topped them with sliced deli ham.
Some pickled okra, mini bell peppers, and blackberries add a ton of antioxidants.
Since this is an E meal, you can add other types of fruit instead of the blackberries.
THM E meal Did you know you can add cocoa powder to peanut junkie butter? Well you can!
Spread it on sprouted bread and top with banana slices for a delicious sandwich.
THM S meal Rolls of deli meat paired with some leftover low carb garlic biscuits.
Pickled okra and mini bell peppers round out the meal.
And a wedge of skinny chocolate.
THM E meal A turkey sandwich on sprouted bread is extra delicious when you spread it with a mix of Dijon mustard and strawberry all fruit jelly.
I know it sounds weird, but trust me. It’s amazing!
Brocolli slaw dressed with a little apple cider vinegar and MCT oil plus some sliced raw veggies help fill you up.
THM S meal I love mixing up a batch of egg salad for easy meals.
Scoop it up with wedges of bell peppers and some Flackers.
THM S meal Chicken salad is another great make ahead option.
You can put it inside half a Joseph’s lavash bread or a low carb tortilla.
Don’t forget the veggies!
THM S meal I buy lots of broccoli slaw. Sometimes I mix it up like coleslaw and have it as a side dish several times that week.
This simple deli plate has lunch meat, cheese, and some pork rinds for crunch.
THM S meal This is basically leftover taco meat. For a change from taco salads, try making a nacho plate using mini bell peppers!
THM E meal I’ve used two wedges of laughing cow cheese on this plate.
One wedge is split between two Wasa crackers.
One wedge is used to stuff the celery.
I love using roasted red peppers on these cracker “sandwiches” and usually put them under the meat, but wanted to make sure you saw them!
THM E meal Remember those brown rice cakes? Spread them with some peanut junkie butter and top them with sliced bananas or sliced apples!
THM S meal Another make ahead salad option: tuna. I load mine up with celery for extra crunch and more veggies.
Toast half a lavash bread for crackers.
Have you ever tried sprinkling everything bagel seasoning on raw veggies? AnnMarie introduced me to that and its so good!
THM E meal I call this a peaches and cream sandwich.
The “cream” is actually blended cottage cheese with some sweetener and cinnamon mixed in. You can eat it in a bowl for a sweet snack, or spread it on bread topped with fruit.
Simple THM Snack Ideas
I love all the shake recipes in the THM cookbooks and from bloggers.
They make the perfect fast snack to “eat” on the run, or while you’re working.
THM S meal This Pumpkin Spice Custard Shake is amazing!
THM FP meal Add some sweetener and vanilla extract to plain nonfat Greek yogurt and mix in some fresh berries.
You can use Triple Zero vanilla yogurt to make it even faster!
THM S meal Sometimes you need a treat for your snack. This raw cookie dough is delicious! Pair it with some almond milk for cookies and milk.
THM E meal This peach mango shake is one of my favorites.
THM S meal Don’t waste money on pre-packaged keto snack boxes (although they’re great if your out without a snack!).
Keep the same ingredients on hand to make your own low carb snack.
THM S meal Hard boiled eggs are a great easy snack (or lunch). If you’ve got time, make a batch of deviled eggs like these “not your mama’s deviled eggs” to snack on all week!
Depending on how hungry you are, add in some sliced sausage, cheese, veggies, and pickles.
The celery is stuffed with cream cheese mixed with hot sauces and some cracked pepper.
THM E meal Every so often I treat myself to a box of Alyssa’s oatmeal bite cookies. I get them at Publix. You can check to see where to find them near you with the link!
Pair them with some Triple Zero yogurt and you’ve got a yummy E snack.
THM E meal Combine 1/4 cup plain, unsweetened whey protein powder with 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, sweetener to taste, a sprinkle of salt, and enough almond milk to get it to spreading consistency.
Then make a chocolate sandwich with sprouted bread.
Try topping it with raspberries or sliced strawberries!
THM FP or S meal You can decide whether to make this delicious blackberry shake an FP or an S.
Speedy THM Dinner Ideas
Dinner for my family is often grilled or roasted meat paired with grilled or roasted veggies. Sometimes with a salad.
I really keep it simple and don’t make labor intensive recipes very often.
Here are a few other quick ideas.
THM S meal Rotisserie chicken and boxes or bags of salad greens are your friend!
I added a handful of broccoli slaw to the salad greens.
You can truly throw anything on top of a bed of lettuce for a fast dinner!
THM S meal We love taco Tuesday! My family loves when I stuff bell peppers with taco meat and bake them with melted cheese.
Add some salsa on top or even guacamole!
THM S meal I make large batches of low carb meatballs and freeze them for fast dinners.
Defrost them in a jar of Rao’s marinara sauce and serve the family meatball subs.
Put your meatballs on a bed of baby spinach you cook in the microwave.
THM E meal I love one pot meals, and when that one pot is an Instant pot? Dinner is ready fast!
This easy chicken and brown rice is a family favorite.
THM FP meal I always make extra grilled chicken to make super quick meals later in the week.
This is half a bag of broccoli slaw topped with grilled chicken.
I dressed it with apple cider vinegar and MCT oil with some salt and pepper.
THM S meal Brown some ground meat and add a jar of Rao’s sauce then serve over zoodles.
I prefer my zoodles uncooked so they don’t get soggy.
