Do you ever think Trim Healthy Mama requires a lot of time? I promise you – it doesn't have to! These fast THM recipes can make it so easy to throw together a delicious, filling, last minute THM meal.
If you feel busy, tired, or overwhelmed, you can take a breath! I've made it my mission to help busy mamas with easy, quick, THM-friendly meals. I put together a printable list of quick and easy heat and eat meals to help you out on busy nights.
These meals rely on Rotisserie Chickens…mainly because you can stretch them to feed a family and the price of rotisserie chickens at Costco hasn't gone up (yet…but I hope they don't!).
There are other frugal ways to make this meal plan work if you don't have a Costco membership! I hunt for boneless, skinless chicken breasts on sale and bake them on a baking sheet. I'll shred half, cut some into cubes, and keep a few whole, then freeze the whole batch. Buying rotisserie chickens or pre-cooked chickens can definitely save time, but it can definitely work to prep your chicken ahead!
Fast THM-Friendly Heat & Eat Meal Ideas:
- Salad with Chicken
- Burrito Bowls
- Cheesy Chicken Dip
- Chicken Alfredo (p.s. – if you have trouble finding an on-plan alfredo sauce recipe, I LOVE this super easy, fast recipe from The Pioneer Woman. You'll just want to skip the regular pasta noodles she uses)
- Mexican Quinoa Salad
- Loaded Sweet Potatoes
- Chicken Quesadillas
All of these ideas are very, very quick (some just take a few minutes!) and you can scale the ingredients to suit your family size. I have a full, free printable for you at the bottom of this post that gives you the ingredients for each recipe that you'll just combine, heat, season, and serve! These are our quick and easy go-to's – I hope you love them!
