6 of My Favorite Trim Healthy Mama Recipes (Lately)

Spring has sprung here in Alberta and I have been spending a lot of time outside in the garden. But I wanted to take time to share 6 of my favorite Trim Healthy Mama recipes from the last couple of months.

I found the recipe for this Bullet Proof Pumpkin Spiced Latte on Pinterest at this link.  This is so yummy. I have always been addicted to Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and didn't think there would be an alternative that I could drink on THM, but this tastes just like any latte I've had in the past.

I found a recipe similar to my Cheesy Ham & Egg pockets on Pinterest, but they rolled theirs up and I like just folding it in half.

I start by frying 1 Tbsp chopped onion in 2 tsp butter. Then I add 1 or 2 eggs, depending on how hungry I am. I scramble the eggs with salt & pepper until cooked and place the egg on a piece of ham and top with 2 slices of cheese. Like in the following picture;

Then I put a little more butter in the pan and fry the ham on one side for 30 sec - 1 min., then flip and fry on the other side.

Seriously? Tuna melts on THM are delicious!  I used the bread in a mug recipe from the book and cooked it in 2 equal portions on my waffle maker for the base.  Then I mixed 1 can chunk tuna packed in water with 3 Tbsp reduced fat mayo, 1 chopped green onion, 3 chopped bread & butter pickles and salt and pepper.  I divided this mixture evenly on the bread and topped with thinly sliced tomato and cheese.  Then bake at 400 for 15 mins.  So, so good!

This recipe blew me away. Again, I found it on Pinterest and here is the link.  I grew up near Nanaimo and we ate a lot of homemade Nanaimo Bars.  These don't taste exactly like the original, BUT they are an awesome second.  The only thing I did different from the recipe was use Skinny Chocolate for the top chocolate layer. You can find that recipe in the book or online.

This cabbage is so good on it's own or as a side dish. I love it!  The recipe is on All Recipes here.

This is just in time for summer. It was very hot here the other day, so I made up a batch of this slushy.  I didn't use any banana to keep it a fuel pull on THM. Sprite is my favorite slurpy flavour, so this really hit the spot for me.  I don't like to consume aspartame very much, so I won't have it all the time, but I definately look forward to having it again.  I found this recipe on Pinterest at this link.

So there you have it. My 6 favorite THM recipes from the last couple of months.

  1. I should comment more often, because I really do love your blog! Although I'm a grandma now, my grandsons are with us a LOT and your tips are so helpful. I was also fortunate enough to visit Alberta many years ago (my husband and I) and we loved it so much...I enjoy reading of your life there. Have a wonderful week!
