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!!
My journey into unhealthy obesity began around 2003, when I noticed that I was gaining weight while I was on a doctor’s supervised diet. I had already lost about 70-80 pounds, but now the reverse was happening, even though I was still following the diet. Then the weight came on fast, crazy fast and even my doctor didn’t know what the heck was going on at my weekly weigh-ins! It was four years later, when other health symptoms cropped up, that I found out I had an overload of estrogen which put almost 100 pounds on me in less than a year, also resulting in surgery to stop the estrogen influx. At this point, hormone therapy alone wouldn’t have helped. Fast forward to November, 2015. I have tried everything under the sun to feel better, except gastric bypass or the sleeve. That’s because overeating isn’t my issue. I’m tired of friends, family and coworkers asking me (nicely) why I’m over weight when they see that I eat good foods and normal portions. Their concerned questions and feelings of hopelessness really made me want to cry. Then I stumbled onto THM. I can’t even remember how I came across the books. I read the reviews, looked at their website and read all of the testimonials. Several of the women have at least two or more of each of my symptoms covering pretty much all of my issues. I figured this might be worth the “one more try” I have left in me, so I ordered the books. They sat around for almost two months while I tried to find time to read the plan. My son also has some weight to lose and prodded me to read the books (if not for me, then for him). I got about half way through the Plan book, starting sifting through the cookbook recipes and then for convenience sake ordered THM products from their website. Fast forward to today, February 10, 2016. I’ve been on THM since January 11, 2016, so it’s been a month, but not a solid month because we’ve had to integrate it into our daily routines and menu. I’m not a drive thru Sue, but I do get good foods to go and my husband did a lot of the home cooking. I had no energy to get through my usual work day and I would be exhausted by the time I got home. Brain fog was an everyday occurrence, I was bloated all the time, had pains, etc. – and that’s even after cutting out/down on rice, breads and pasta (I don’t like potatoes so not a problem there). THM’s program of food combining makes sense to me. The recipes are delicious and quick. I love my crockpot meals, simple, convenient and delicious (more please)! My son helps me cook and likes to be involved in the meal planning. He keeps me motivated by helping a lot. Plus, he’s slimming down fast! He’s down about 10 pounds and losing his tummy, I’m down 9, and what I can also tell you is that my clothes are looser (even my shoes). The food doesn’t hurt my inflammation, it usually feels like my fat is on fire after I eat and I haven’t had any of that since being on this plan. I love that I can make my cake AND eat it too! So many good things on this plan. Love the Shrinker (drink it every day!) as well as GGMS (I just call it Moonshine for my son’s sake). I’m more than hopeful that I’m finally on the path to good health! I have had more energy and feel better than I have in a long time. I’ve also notice that I’ve been happier and not complaining about aches and pains. And my very picky husband has liked the foods as well. He’s been having a meal with us here and there, and looks forward to pot roast night. I’ve given taste tests to my friends, family and coworkers. I’m sure they’ll all be following the plan soon enough. Gosh, I’m so looking forward to trying the pancakes. Love them, but haven’t been able to eat them for so long because of the inflammation and bloat. Well not anymore! Saturday I’m going to have them for breakfast! Thank you Pearl and Serene! I love your videos and will be joining your online community soon! A shout out to mrscriddleskitchen.com best Easy Enchiladas on the planet. Gave my friend a “foodgasm!”
