I almost made it! Today’s the last day of my (mini) Trim Healthy Mama One Week Fuel Cycle. Today’s a Deep S day for the first two meals, ending with an E fueled dinner. Breakfast 7:00 (woo, it’s the weekend- I slept until 6, late for me) I had a Trimmy (with butter in it!), […]

This banana “cream” oatmeal is a clean E in TrimHealthyMama parlance. If you are in weight loss mode, you can choose to leave the banana out, adding flavor with banana extract. But if you’re in maintenance mode (or if bananas don’t cause you to gain), go ahead and add the banana! I have always loved […]

Artichoke and Chicken Casserole
