Hey there! Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?  I am busy getting ready for a visit from my family.  They are coming to stay with us over the long holiday weekend.  We can’t wait to spend Thanksgiving with them this year.  Despite this being a busy time of year, I continue to follow my healthy eating lifestyle with THM (Trim Healty Mama).

Today I’m sharing a day of E meals with you for this edition of What’s On My Plate.  I generally try to eat 5-7 E meals each week.  But lately I’ve seen the scale moving up a bit, so I thought I’d try something different and incorporate more E meals.  I’ve recently learned that healthy carbs may be more helpful for me because I have hypothyroidism.  I’m just hoping adding more E meals in my week will get the scale moving back down!  Fingers crossed!

What’s On My Plate – A Day Of E Meals

Breakfast – Kefir Smoothie

Want to know the truth?  Kefir scared me!  I was nervous to try it.  I actually bought it several times and threw it away after it sat in my refrigerator so long that it expired.  Finally, after some convincing from Anne I tried it in a smoothie.  OMG… game changer… it’s so good.  I now alternate between this fruit smoothie and a chocolate secret big boy in the mornings.

To make this smoothie I blend the following in my nutribullet:

  • 1 cup kefir
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 scoop THM collegian (I use the scoop that comes in the bag)
  • 3/4 cup frozen berry mix (strawberries, rasperries & blackberries)
  • 1/2 small banana
  • 1/2 scoop THM whey protein powder
  • 2 tsp THM baboa boost
  • 1 cup ice

Lunch – Turkey Sandwich and Yogurt

My favorite sprouted bread is the Silver Hills brand.  I buy it at Target…it’s so good!  A turkey sandwich on toasted sprouted bread with a wedge of laughing cow cheese spread and lettuce is an easy E meal.  I also added a chocolate Oikos Triple Zero yogurt topped with sliced strawberries to my lunch.

Dinner – Cowboy Grub

Cowboy Grub was one of the first recipes I made out of the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook when I started this plan.  I was surprised how full of flavor this meal was and it confirmed that I could stick to this way of eating.  Growing up I ate chili over a bed of rice so this was reminiscent of that childhood meal but with a lot more veggies.  I am constantly surprised at how most recipes I try from the THM cookbooks are full of healthy veggies.  Sometimes they are hidden in the recipes and my kids don’t even realize it.

Snack – Banana Cake

Craving something sweet at night when I’m working on blog posts is hard when I’ve been trying to incorporate even more E meals this week.  Then I remembered the BAM (Bust A Myth) cake, another recipe from the THM cookbook.  I whipped up a batch and Chris & I have been enjoying it for days.  I topped it with some plain nonfat greek yogurt mixed with THM supersweet and banana extract.  So yummy!

And there you have it a day of E meal ideas to help you stay on track with Trim Healthy Mama!
