Trim Healthy Mama Sweetie on Steroids

 

As I mentioned lsat week, I’ve made it a goal to try every recipe in the TrimHealthyMama cookbook.

Trim Healthy Mama Sweetie on Steroids is not a new recipe for me, but I took a picture anyway. It’s one of my favorites and an excellent, tasty, easy E meal.  I make this one a little different each time. Here it is with half a medium-sized sweet potato, cooked with zucchini, broccoli, squash, onions and sprinkled with Cajun seasoning and nutritional yeast. On the side is a scoop of cottage cheese for protein.

What did I try that was new?

Trim Healthy Mama Cajun Cream Chicken

 

Cajun Cream Chicken. I thought it was easy and tasty. It tasted even better the next day. I had it over cauli rice and sauteed cabbage. My kids and hubby had it over rice. This is such an easy slow cooker recipe. You can memorize it fast, and throw the ingredients in the crock pot when you’re having a busy day.

Trim Healthy Mama quicky-quick power protein balls

I also made Trim Healthy Mama Quicky-quick Power Protein Balls. It was a pain, because I have a horrible blender/food processor combo. It doesn’t do either job particularly well! The batter wasn’t high enough in the container to mix properly, so I ended up mixing it by hand – which would have been easier if I had just done it that way in the first place!

I have a Ninja combo. I HATE it. It doesn’t make good smoothies because it can’t handle much ice. The blender containers are too small to fit an FSF recipe. The food processor is horrible too.

Any recommendations? I know the VitaMix is highly rated, but I don’t want to spend quite that much yet. Blendtec? Please tell me in comments!

Anyway, those protein balls are amazing. Loved them! Such a perfect thing to pop in your mouth when you’re starving and heading out the door, or with a cup of coffee or tea for a tiny bit of sweet.

I made a delicious snack. It’s a small piece of Bust a Myth banana bread topped with 0% Greek yogurt (mixed first with peanut flour and stevia), with a few slices of apple. So yummy and filling. And fast.

    I’m glad to read your thoughts about the Cajun Chicken. While Cajun (or Creole for that matter) is not a favored flavor for me, I was intrigued by the recipe and have been on the fence about trying it. Over the past several weeks, I have tried several THM recipes to which I have quickly become addicted: Peanut Junkie Butter, Chicken & Wild Rice Soup (#ForTheWin), Cheeseburger Pie and Trim Mac Salad (I seasoned the meat the same way and split it between the recipes, packaging small bags of it for the freezer), and my new fav from this weekend, Chocolate Waffles with Sliced Strawberries (I added Strawberry extract to the batter, O. M. G.). I have been frequently surprised and impressed with everything I’ve tried and wondering why it’s taken me so long to move beyond my hang-ups and get THM-cooking. Re: blender — I have had my Vitamin for years and love it; I have read recently on the THM FB page that many THMommas have gotten a Vitamix look-alike at Aldi for <$100. The consensus seems to be positive. You may want to check out Aldi.

      I have had my VitamiX, not VitamiN, for years. ;P

      Corey I wanted to get that ALDI blender! I went to the store the week they offered them and they were sold out. I imagine they go fast. I even saw a YouTube video of a smoothie enthusiast who heartily recommended the ALDI blender, saying it performs as well as much higher priced blenders. I’m sure they’ll offer it again. :-)
