I don’t know about y’all but I was ready for Spring about two months ago. Green trees, grass, flowers blooming, warmer weather – I’m all for that. And I love the fresh flavors that come with Spring. I asked some of my Trim Healthy Mama blogging buddies for their favorite Spring dishes and boy did I hit the jackpot! We’ve got a round-up of over 30 great recipes for you to celebrate Spring Trim Healthy Mama style!
The Cheesy Bacon Chicken Casserole recipe on our site here is crazy popular with over 1,000 views Every Single Day since it was published almost two years ago. I tell you, just sprinkle bacon on a dish and people will come running. Our family really loves it, but now that we’re losing weight with Trim Healthy Mama (100 pounds together so far!) we like to take our old favorites and tweak them to fit our healthier lifestyle. This low carb Cheesy Bacon Chicken Cauliflower casserole is absolutely amazing – all the same great flavors, without the heavy carbs from the pasta and canned soup.
I just want to state here and now that I feel pretty ridiculous calling this a “recipe.” I mean, it’s a tuna sandwich, y’all. I remember in the third grade our teacher handed out writing assignments like “Describe How To Make a Sandwich” – that’s what this feels like. By the way, I nailed that writing assignment. I decided to share this “recipe” because it’s one of my favorite E (energizing) lunches on the Trim Healthy Mama plan.
Big, hearty, savory meatballs! We love this stick-to-your-ribs, man-pleasing dinner. These meatballs are packed with a sneaky superfood: flaxseed! Naturally full of fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and omega-3, flaxseed also works as a natural binder to keep our meatballs nice and firm without added carbs like crackers or breadcrumbs. Our recipe does use 1 cup old fashioned oats, but it is spread out over a very large batch of meatballs and can be reduced or eliminated entirely if you’d like.
These decadent Cocoa Drizzled Coconut Muffins are low carb, gluten free, sugar free, and packed with protein. Who knew healthy stuff could be this fabulous? You can enjoy these muffins for breakfast (or whenever… live your life on the edge!) because they’re made with eggs, cottage cheese, and protein powder to keep you feeling full all morning long.
