Here is an example of what you should eat on the Trim Healthy Mama Diet! I follow this guide every time I'm putting a plate of food together! This saves time and helps me make sure I'm getting everything I need.
My goal today is to de-mystify Trim Healthy Mama meals. I've been on the Trim Healthy Mama Diet for over 5 years now (maintaining after I got to goal weight, then losing baby weight again). My website is even published in two of their books! In that time, I've seen that my Trim Healthy Mama meals have become second-nature. I can eat at just about any restaurant or throw something together at home with very little thought and effort because I've gotten so used to eating on plan.
My Trim Healthy Mama meal plan and meals follow a formula – no matter what fuel type I'm eating. When I deviate from this, I often struggle more with weight loss and get caught up in bad food habits. Please remember that Trim Healthy Mama is not about rules, and this is not “official” THM advice – this is just a general guideline I follow to make meals as easy as possible. This blueprint for your plate can help you meal plan or come up with last minute meals quickly and easily – just like my Breakfast and Lunch Routine or Weekly Family Dinner Theme Nights.
Trim Healthy Mama Diet – Examples of My Dinner Plate:
This is not anything earth-shattering, but the most important parts of my plate for the Trim Healthy Mama Diet are protein and veggies.
When I started Trim Healthy Mama, I drew this circle as a representation of what should go on my plate:
Trim Healthy Mama Diet – S Meals:
Often, my S or E meal has protein built in, but I still don't want too many heavy dairy products in my S meals or too many carbs in my E meals. My S plate could have 1/4 of the plate filled with something like my Chicken Divan Casserole (S), 1/2 of my plate filled with veggies, and I can always throw a piece of Trim Healthy Mama's Wonderful White Blender Bread from Trim Healthy Table or another “S” side (like buttered cauliflower rice) in the spot reserved for protein because there is already protein in the Chicken Divan Casserole.
If I found that there was not enough protein in my healthy fats, however, I could add some meat or eggs as my S protein in the bottom left 1/4 of the plate.
Trim Healthy Mama Diet – E Meals:
I most often find that I need additional protein with E meals. The same diagram could look like this for a sample E meal:
I hope this visual example is helpful! This is how I've simplified meals – I'd love to hear how you're simplifying yours!
