Here are some visuals from my week eating Trim Healthy Mama foods – specifically those from the book. I love a good cookbook, especially when there are pictures. Unfortunately, THM does not have pictures, so I figured I’d shoot some as I make the foods from the book. The recipes aren’t included here, you’ll need the book for that. But the visuals and my thoughts on the recipes are here for your reading and pinning pleasure ;).
Just Like Campbell’s Tomato Soup – S
Page 292 in Trim Healthy Mama.
Wow. Amazingly delicious. I didn’t do a side-by side comparison with the name brand, but think this recipe may actually be better. Like, by a lot.
I made it with the chicken stock option, and sprinkled some Bragg Nutritional Yeast Seasoning, Premium, 4.5 Ounce on top. Love.
I would serve this to my family without hesitation. And along with it, maybe a chicken quesadilla on a low carb tortilla and a green salad.
It’s the new “grilled cheese & tomato soup” meal in our home.
Choco Pudding – S, E, or FP
This was really yummy. And incredibly filling. I added a little caramel flavoring to mine. Mmmm. So filling I could not finish up what’s in that glass in the picture. In Trim Healthy Mama, the authors mention that it is good when you make it, but even better after it’s been in the fridge. Absolutely TRUE! I made it in the evening and had some. Then the next day I had more. It’s almost like a different food after it’s had time to really set up and become a creamy pudding. Not sure how that happens, but IMO, it’s worth the wait.
Basic Treat Squares – S
These are truly a lifesaver. If you are not a breakfast person (I’m *SO* not a breakfast person) it’s fantastic to have these on hand so you can get something into your system in the a.m. with pretty much no effort whatsoever.
They’re also a great grab-and-go kind of food. You do need to keep them cool if the weather is warm, because that coconut oil in them will melt, but who doesn’t have a cooler and some ice when they really need it, right?
I’ve made these many times, and will continue to do so.
Mexican Cottage Cheese Salad – FP
This salad is a fantastic light lunch. It’s a Fuel Pull meal, so it has a little more of a “diety” feel to it, but honestly, there are some times when that’s what I’m in the mood for. Definitely not all the time, but sometimes.
It’s also super fast and easy to throw together, and it won’t leave you feeling all bogged down.
Southwestern Chicken – S, E, or FP
If you read the recipe in Trim Healthy Mama, you’ll see that it calls for green salsa, and I used red. It’s what I had on hand when I felt like making it, and it’s super delicious either way. I actually prefer it with salmon, but this one was for my husband. And he enjoyed it, so that’s another THM recipe that got his “thumbs up”. He’s kind of picky…
I’ve made this probably more than any other recipe in the book (with salmon). Right now it’s definitely a favorite.
And like so many of the other recipes, it’s so easy to make. I mean, seriously easy.
