Trim Healthy Mama Chocolate Pie with Meringue

My cousin Penny has recently started her own Trim Healthy Mama journey. I’m so excited for her! We were close growing up. She’s older than me by exactly 364 days. So for one whole day every year we were the same age. I seriously loved that day. Penny was always so cool, and pretty, and fun to be around. As a kid I wanted to be just like her. Now here we are, sharing tasty, healthy recipes with each other – all grown up. 

A lovely perk of Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle is it’s so easy to modify favorite recipes to be on plan and weight-loss friendly. Our Nanny always made the most wonderful chocolate meringue pie during the holidays. Penny has transformed a family classic into a healthy, low carb, sugar free delight! Read on for a very special guest post from her.

Why I’m a Trim Healthy Mama Blogger

Trim Healthy Mama

I’ve been blogging off and on for about five years, respectively. I’ve covered a variety of topics that were near and dear to my heart – but my passion has been food blogging. As a kid I would love to flip through cookbooks and look at the pictures – sadly as a young adult I was a terrible cook. My Nanny took pity on her wayward granddaughter and taught her a few handy tricks in the kitchen. I think she did this mostly for my husband’s sake. When I first started this blog, it was to share some of my sweet Nanny’s recipes as a way to keep her alive in my heart through the magic of wonderful food. In 2014 I started the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan as a way to lose the weight I had struggled with for years. I had seen the program work for close friends and once I started, I could see that it worked for me and my husband. As the direction of my life (and waistline) changed, I knew the content of my blog would also need to be revised.
