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.

What’s THM?

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!

I’ve shared how I lost 25 lbs and went from a size 12 to a size 4 without counting a single calorie here.

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.

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!
