We’ve had several friends and family reach out to us about Trim Healthy Mama (THM) since the start of the new year. Apparently, we’ve inspired some people to begin following the THM lifestyle. Yay! We are so excited for you to get healthy! I know I was a bit overwhelmed in the beginning. I mean seriously…S, E and FP meals…what!? If you’re new to THM you may want to read this post to get some tips on getting started.
Anne and I decided to share another edition of What’s On My Plate today. When I started Trim Healthy Mama I wanted to keep it as simple as possible. There are definitely new recipes my family loves from both of the THM cookbooks. But today I’m sharing some easy “regular” meals that can be tweaked to fit your new healthy eating plan! Hooray for easy!
What’s On My Plate – Easy Meal Ideas
Breakfast – Chocolate Secret Big Boy (FP meal)
Okay I know this doesn’t look easy but it really is…honest! My go-to breakfast is a smoothie. Bet you guessed from that picture…the secret ingredient is okra. Say what…I know…I know… I’ve never even eaten okra, nevermind thrown a cup frozen in my smoothie. But I LOVE it!
Keeping all the dry ingredients needed in a basket so they are easy to locate makes this a smooth process. And leaving extra measuring spoons in my dry goods is a great tip we shared with our readers in this post. You can find the recipe for the Chocolate Secret Big Boy in the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook.
Lunch – PB&J (E meal)
Don’t you just love a good ol’ pb&j? I even got to enjoy this childhood favorite with a glass of chocolate milk. YUM! Sprouted bread means I can still eat bread while staying on plan! My favorite brand is Silver Hills Bakery. I make a quick container of THM Peanut Junkie Butter (recipe in this cookbook) every week and store it in a small mason jar in the fridge. It’s made with THM defatted peanut flour which I purchase online here. Then add Polaner’s All Fruit as the J in your PB&J.
Almond milk mixed with some stevia, cocoa powder and a bit of protein powder makes a delicious glass of chocolate milk to go with your sandwich. There are several ingredients that I purchase regularly through the Trim Healthy Mama store to make some of my favorites. I find the prices are the same if not better than I can get in the grocery store. And the quality of the products is the best.
Snack – Yogurt & Apple Slices (E meal)
A friend introduced me to this quick simple snack idea. I just slice up a small granny smith apple and dip in a Dannon Oikos Triple Zero Salted Caramel yogurt. It’s so delicious!
Dinner – Cheeseburger & Green Fries (S meal)
Dinner was burgers and fries, which is another easy meal to tweak for my THM way of eating. Just forget the bun! Easy peasy! Honestly, I don’t miss it and as one of my best friends says “I LOVE IT WITHOUT THE BUN”!!!
My husband loves french fries…they are his weakness. We tried these crispy oven baked green fries…again from the THM cookbook and we were hooked. We make lots of our veggies with this simple recipe. They are crispy & salty so it helps curb that french fry craving.
Well, there you have it a day of my healthy meals! Need more inspiration?
