“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” - James 1:27 (NIV)
There’s an image of the standard “religious” person: buttoned-up, church clothes, combed hair, bible in one hand, pious gaze barely registering the people around them. The image goes hand-in-hand with an old expression, “they’re so heavenly minded they’re of no earthly good.”
Delicious crispy pork chops – no frying necessary! Crushed pork rinds make the breading for these delicious pork chops. You get all the great crispiness of a fried pork chop, baked in the oven with no mess.
I am SO excited about this recipe! After I had baby number seven some very sweet friends from MOPS organized meals for my family. One of those moms, Melissa, brought over the most delicious chicken and rice dish. She very sweetly gave me her recipe. I’ve taken that scrumptious dish and tweaked it just slightly to fit in with our Trim Healthy Mama plan.

When I first started Trim Healthy Mama, I (wrongly) thought I’d never have bread again. After fully reading through the book I realized I could indeed have bread and still lose weight! There are some wonderful homemade bread recipes in the Trim Healthy Mama book. Popular Trim Healthy Mama blogger Gwen of Gwen’s Nest has a fantastic cold-fermented bread recipe on her site. Cold fermenting the bread dough allows time for the yeast to naturally break down and consume a lot of the carbohydrates in the dough, creating a low-carb bread with a delicious, developed flavor.
These delicious burritos are an E meal on the Trim Healthy Mama plan. Hence the quirky little play on the name of this dish: “burr-E-tos.” We like to have fun with our food around here. E (energizing) meals can often be difficult to incorporate into your daily menu. Those meals are categorized as high (healthy) carb, low fat. Black beans and chick peas are a great source of fiber and protein and make up the bulk of our healthy burrito filling.
After six pregnancies – including a set of twins, and a c-section with my last baby, Gideon – I’ve had quite a lot of tummy trauma. My belly is pretty squishy, y’all. I call it my empty kangaroo pouch. Abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy to make room for babies. Moms are often left with a gap called Diastasis Recti. This condition contributes to the “mommy belly” which can make you look pregnant, even when you’re not. It’s very frustrating for mommies trying to lose weight and fit back into pre-pregnancy jeans.
