About the Author
Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett are sisters who share a passion for healthy eating. They both have large boisterous families and love to experiment in the kitchen on ways to best nourish their families and stay slim and healthy in the process. They are former Christian recording artists who traveled extensively for the record label, but they relinquished their touring careers to embrace a life at home with children, dinners, dishes, and diapers. They never looked back.

This is the most beautiful and useful cookbook I have ever owned (and I'm a bit of a collector). First of all, the recipes are SO delicious! I've made over a dozen of them now and none have disappointed. RUN to the kitchen and go make the Chicken Parmy like TONIGHT. It's unbelievable. Secondly, the recipes are SO healthy! I can't believe I can eat such wholesome foods and lose weight at the same time. I've been eating Trim Healthy Mama style (which means I'm eating goooood) for well over two years now, and I've improved my health, increased my energy... while *not* having to deny my sweet tooth or go hungry. No deprivation here - just scrumptious, FUN meals for me and my family!
That being said...
I bought this book along with the companion plan book after doing extensive research about the diet online. I normally am a highly skeptical person when I read diet reviews online because I feel like people have just deluded themselves into thinking that the food is good when it isn't :)
However, I've been on Trim Healthy Mama for about 4 months now, and honestly, the only reason I have stuck to this way of eating (when I have failed miserably at many other diets ((I'M LOOKING AT YOU, PALEO)) ) is because I LOVE THE FOOD. And my husband loves the food. And my toddler who throws everything I give her on the ground, loves the food!
Is every recipe in this book super awesome? No, I've made several that I immediately threw in the trash because I thought they were pretty gross. But there are plenty of recipes from loads of other cookbooks that I have made I didn't think were fit to eat, either.
So let me tell you about our favorites...
Chicken Parmy........ Ohemgee. Make it. Its so flipping good. We have this at least 3 times a month at our house and never have leftovers!
Trim Zuppa Toscana.........Tastes pretty darn close to what you get at Olive Garden!! This is one of my person favorites from the book!
Cheeseburger Pie.....my husband loves this...I mean, its meat and cheese and you can drown it in mustard and YUM.
Banging Ranch Drums....drum sticks....and ranchiness...what more could you ask for??
Tuscany Egg Bake...I was REALLY skeptical about this one but it turned out to be one of my hands down favorite comfort meals! I could eat the whole pan!
Thin Mint Chocolate Chip Shake...I make this ALL. THE. TIME. Easily 3x a week. I'm obsessed with mint chocolate chip ice cream and this hits the spot marvelously!
Trimtastic Chocolate Cake...its yummy, yummy, rich chocolate cake. And the frosting tastes like fluffy chocolate milk. I could easily eat the whole thing by myself.
Glosted Raspberry Muffins....muffins tops with cream cheese icing. I literally made myself sick one day because I ate 7 of these in one hour (yes 7!)
We have a ton others! I definitely think this cookbook is a must if you are starting THM...it can really help you in the beginning to make sure you are eating what you are supposed to!
I have lost the 15 pounds of baby weight from my second daughter that I have been carrying around and I haven't set foot in the gym once! I love eating this way...I didn't think I would but I was SO WRONG! I highly recommend it 1000000%!! Give it a try! You wont regret it!!
2) Dairy-free: I found something very strange in the cookbook- recipes that were labelled dairy-free, yet called for whey protein? Umm... whey protein is not dairy free. I thought maybe it was a typo for a second, but then found another recipe with the same problem.
Okay, now I have not had the book for long and have only made two recipes from it- the Cry No More Brownies and the Salted Caramel Gluccie Pudding. Yum!! The brownies were lovely and fudgy and I love the secret ingredient in them but they did take a while to make because it called for special ingredient sweeteners and I didn't have them so I had to track down a conversion chart and figure it out first. I do love the more professional look of the book and am very glad to see Serene and Pearl have become so popular. I have followed their mom's ministry for many years and it's so neat to see these ladies who come from a great family now in the spotlight. :)
