Sometimes I hear that Trim Healthy Mama is complicated, and it just…isn't!!! I think I made it super complicated at first, before I realized that it didn't have to be that way. I made this infographic (my first ever!) to show you how simple THM can be, and how you can low-carb it with the best of them with very little effort. These are S meals only (please read the Trim Healthy Mama book to see why this is NOT the only type of meal you should be eating!), and just a simple illustration to show how I eat my family favorites, all the time, without the weight-gaining ingredients. Pretty simple. Of course, you'll want to watch out for added sugars or flours, and you'll definitely want to read Trim Healthy Mama for more details, but this is the basic idea of how I convert our favorite recipes to be THM-friendly. This chart shows low carb family dinners – the same ones we've eaten for ages, only healthier! Best of all, since we've gone gluten-free due to a Celiac disease diagnosis, we can still eat our favorites.
These are just a few examples – you can apply the same principles to many favorites. For example, instead of steak and potatoes, we eat steak with baked asparagus, green beans, or brussels sprouts. When we eat enchiladas, we pile the ingredients in a casserole dish (without tortillas), and eat them as a casserole instead. There are SO MANY OPTIONS for low-carbing your favorites!
