Sugar Free BBQ Pulled Pork with Broccoli Slaw

sugar free BBQ sauce with pulled pork THM friendly from thecoersfamily.com

I recently saw one of those click-bait type posts on Facebook about a two-ingredient BBQ sauce and I was intrigued. The recipe used ketchup and a can of soda… not exactly what I think of for a solid BBQ sauce, but it got me thinking maybe I could use a can of stevia-sweetened soda to create a simple sugar free BBQ sauce for our family’s favorite slow cooked pulled pork. The result was yummy, y’all!

Mega Meatballs – low carb, THM S

low carb Mega Meatballs THM S from thecoersfamily.com

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.

Slow Cooked Lemon Chicken with Brown Rice – THM E Meal

Slow Cooked Lemon Chicken

Our family enjoys flavorful E (energizing) meals on the Trim Healthy Mama plan. I especially love anything I can toss in the Crock Pot in the morning and enjoy for dinner later that day. Trim Healthy Mama is a carb conscious lifestyle, not “low carb” – THMers need healthy carbs to fuel our metabolisms and support overall health. When enjoying an E meal, it’s important to keep fat content low. This recipe uses lean chicken breast meat, cooked until tender in lemon juice for a light, bright meal.

Low Carb Mexican Pizza from thecoersfamily.comMy hubby and I are certified Pizza Junkies. We love us a good slice of pizza, and being Texans we really love some delicious Mexican Pizza. We’re coming up on our one year “Trimmaversary” with Trim Healthy Mama and we’ve lost almost 100 pounds together. Trim Healthy Mama has taught us to be carb conscious – and we adore our “S” (satisfying) meals, full of healthy fats and low on carbs. Recently we discovered this amazing Holy Grail Pizza Crust and I tell ya, it’s just made our whole world a little brighter. Low carb pizza crust that tastes like regular crust! You can hold it and it won’t flop around. We’re just tickled pink, y’all.
