Roasted Cherry Tomatoes (THM-FP, Gluten-Free)

I planted ONE cherry tomato plant this year. Neither of us like raw tomatoes, so putting them in a salad was out of the question. I had to use them somehow, so here is what I came up with. These little tomatoes burst with an Italian fresh flavor! This is a great summer side dishContinue reading “Roasted Cherry Tomatoes (THM-FP, Gluten-Free)”

Pineapple Tajin® Chicken (THM-E)

This chicken recipe stars juicy pineapple with a spicy twist! The spice I’m referring to is Tajin® seasoning. I first heard of this spice on the THM podcast, then saw people using it on the Facebook groups. It looked appealing, so I began looking for it. I couldn’t find it at Kroger or Wal-Mart, butContinue reading “Pineapple Tajin® Chicken (THM-E)”

Berry Cobbler (THM-S, Sugar Free and Gluten Free)

I had the privilege to pick about a gallon of beautiful, vibrant raspberries and blackberries from our farm. I am constantly amazed at how lovely the berries are!

Einkorn Sourdough Bread (THM-E)

I fell in love with sourdough this year. I made my own starter from the usual all-purpose flour and loved the results. Years ago, I made sourdough from rye and spelt according to the recipe in The Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. But my husband isn’t crazy about rye. So I recently found some whole wheatContinue reading “Einkorn Sourdough Bread (THM-E)”

Turkey and Broccoli Casserole (THM-S)

I have an abundance of ground turkey. Now, ground turkey is a leaner meat option, and usually makes a great lean protein choice for a carb-ier meal, if you’re looking to separate fuels. (As in THM S or E meals.) I’m also looking for ways to cram all the veggies I can into a casserole!Continue reading “Turkey and Broccoli Casserole (THM-S)”

Sick of Chemicals On Your Skin? I Was, Too.

I became a little psycho about what foods were going into my body a few years ago… then I also realized what you put ON your body can be just as bad! Ahh! Since then, I will admit, I’ve calmed down. But when you see warning about breast cancer on the deodorant label, warnings aboutContinue reading “Sick of Chemicals On Your Skin? I Was, Too.”
