Brown Rice Pudding: THM "E"

I have been working on a THM-safe rice pudding recipe using brown rice, but just couldn’t get it right. Leave it to Briana Thomas to perfect a recipe for Brown Rice Pudding a la TrimHealthyMama! This recipe is an “E” fuel, rare for a dessert. Rice pudding is a lovely comfort food and so nice […]

Easy Baked Egg Muffins (THM "S")

Sometimes, I’m just not in the mood to stand over a hot stove in the morning. One way I can get breakfast for 9 on the table quickly is to bake eggs in muffin cups. I also love to make these Baked Egg Muffins when we’re leaving town in the morning and have a long […]

Creamy Cauliflower Soup - THM "S"

I love cauliflower, and it loves me too! Of course we TrimHealthyMamas© eat cauliflower often, but sometimes our families don’t share our enthusiasm. One way I get cauliflower into my kids is with this THM-safe Cauliflower Soup recipe to my family. The soup pot was scraped clean. I consider that a success! Funny, my oldest […]

Oatmeal Clafoutis, TrimHealthyMama style

Before following TrimHealthyMama© principles, I often made a breakfast treat called Oatmeal Clafoutis (pronounced kla-FOO-tee). I loved it, the kids and hubby loved it, and I could assemble it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning for a no-work-before-coffee delicious hot breakfast. (And it gets extra points for being tres […]

Trim Healthy Mama ALDI

Before I began my TrimHealthyMama© journey, I wrote an ebook about how to save money and still eat a whole foods diet by shopping at ALDI. Even after becoming a THM, I still do almost all my shopping at ALDI. I don’t have to worry about coupons because I’m always getting a great deal there. […]

Instant cheesecake (THM " S", low carb, sugar free)

Occasionally, I get a wicked craving for cheesecake. Sometimes, I don’t want to mix up all the ingredients and wait for a cheesecake to bake and then cool! This dessert (or snack or breakfast or lunch)  is just the ticket. It takes seconds to assemble, requires no oven, and is sugarless and low carb. In […]

Simple THM "S" Snack

A little dark chocolate, a small handful of almonds, a few coconut chips (these are simply coconut and salt, no sugar added). I sometimes have this for breakfast if I’m on the go, or for a 3 PM “le goûter” with coffee. It seems to satisfy my sweet tooth, takes all of 30 seconds to […]

Chocolate Oatmeal - THM "E"

Like many people who begin eating a la Trim Healthy Mama©, “E” meals, particularly breakfasts, were tough for me. I loved oatmeal for breakfast, but couldn’t imagine eating it without a ton of butter. Of course, you can eat your oatmeal with a lot of butter “on plan” if you wish, but Crossovers (meals that […]

Asian-style Beef Soup: THM "S"

Asian-style Beef Noodle Soup This soup is a huge hit with my family and is truly a one-pot meal that you can get on the table in under 20 minutes. Before Trim Healthy Mama, I would cook this with gluten-free rice noodles. To THM-ify this, I use on-plan noodles (brown rice, buckwheat or Dreamfield’s pasta), and […]
