Recipe: THM style Joseph’s Pizza

source link I’ve been actively on the Trim Healthy Mama plan for about 16 months now, and I’m slowly but surely getting my family on board as well.

http://funeralflowershub.com/?p=bachelor-thesis-help I recently tried this pizza recipe from the THM cookbook. It calls for a Joseph’s pita, but all I had were flatbreads. Also, you’re going to need a sugar free pizza sauce. You can make your own or you can purchase the No Sugar Added sauce at Aldi’s. I originally tried to use Classico but it does contain sugar, so it’s off plan.

Let them stand for two minutes before saucing them up. Add your cheese and pepperoni.

Easy fall soups: chicken noodle soups

I love making soups! It’s cheap, easy, and there is usually a lot left over. I have made veggie soups, taco soups, and chili, but have never before made chicken noodle soup. I decided I wanted to make a really simple recipe with only a few ingredients, so here is what I came up with. You will only need the following ingredients: chicken broth, No Yolks noodles, carrots, celery, parsley flakes, oregano, and chicken.

Making this soup is ridiculously easy:

1. Combine your thawed chicken and chicken broth in a stock pot. Boil until the chicken is cooked through. I use boneless chicken breasts so I can save the time I would have spent deboning them.

2. Remove the cooked chicken, chop into bite sized pieces and set aside.

3. Bring chicken broth to a simmer. Add celery and carrots, and heat until the veggies are soft.

4. Bring noodles to a boil, drain, and add them to the broth. Add the chicken pieces to the broth. Add parsley and oregano to the broth.

5. Bring the broth and all ingredients to a boil. Let the soup boil 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Trim Healthy Mama Cheeseburger Pie

cheeseburger-pie

Since my youngest daughter was born almost eleven months ago, I’ve been on a personal journey to get healthier and drop a little weight in the process. I was introduced to Trim Healthy Mama by a friend. I lost 50 pounds (30 of those were baby weight) and I can’t put into words how much better I’m feeling.

For the first time since high school, I can wear size 6 pants. It’s amazing.

I wanted to ease some of the pickier members of my family into the THM plan as well. My book and cookbook suggested “cheeseburger pie” as a good starting point for picky husbands 🙂

The recipe is in the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook and is very easy and affordable to make.

Here is the cast of characters. Not pictured is the ground beef.

dsc_2386

And here is a list of what you need:

             This recipe feeds 6 to 8, but ingredients can be reduced to accommodate a smaller family.

Ingredients:
– 2 to 2.5 pounds ground beef or venison
– 3 teaspoons onion powder
– 1.5 teaspoons Mineral Salt
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– 12 ounces cheese of your choice, grated
– 2 large eggs
– 1/2 cup mayonnaise (can substitute Greek yogurt)
– 1/2 cup heavy cream

First, you brown and drain your meat. We used 80% ground beef.

dsc_2385

After draining the meat, add the salt, pepper, and onion salt.

dsc_2388

Spread the meat in a 9X13 baking dish and mix in half of the grated cheese.

In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, mayonnaise and cream and pour it over the meat. Top the mixture with the rest of the cheese.

dsc_2389

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

Enjoy your healthy and tasty meal!

Easy Homemade Pizza 


A few days ago,  my husband came home from work talking about making homemade pizza.  I was skeptical but decided to humor him. 

The pizza recipe he gave me was delicious and easy.  I enjoyed it and will make it again. 

You will need some frozen canned pizza dough.  You’ll find it in the freezer cases next to the biscuit dough in a cylindrical can. You will also need your choice of pizza sauce,  your choice of toppings, grated cheese,  butter, and  a baking sheet. Also, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. 

Take your dough out of the can and gently roll it out onto the lightly greased baking sheet.  Make sure you roll the dough flat. 

We wanted some sausage and pepperoni on our pizza,  so we browned our sausage while our dough baked. After your sausage cooks, drain it and crumble it up. 

When your pizza crust has baked for seven minutes and is completely cooked,  Put your pizza sauce on your pizza, taking care to spread it evenly. 

Next,  add your grated cheese to the top of the pizza. 

Add your toppings 

Cook your pizza at 425 door three minutes, or until the cheese has melted. When it’s done cooking,  let the pizza cool for a few minutes before eating. 

Enjoy!!

Peaches and cream overnight oats, Trim Healthy Mama style 


School has started back and things are a bit crazy around here. We are struggling to find the balance and I could definitely use some simplifying.

Mornings are by far the hardest. Each day we struggle to get everyone dressed, fed and out of the house ON TIME. Since skipping breakfast isn’t an option, I needed some quick make ahead breakfast options that are cheap and still healthy.

This overnight oats recipe is in the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook, but as usual, I have put my own spin on it. You will need 1/4 cup of old fashioned rolled oats.

Next, add 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of almond milk. The cookbook recipe asks for 1/4 cup integral collagen, but I added a dash of coconut oil with MCT instead.

Next, add a pinch of mineral salt, a half teaspoon of stevia and a heaping tablespoon of Cottage cheese or Greek yogurt. I used Dannon triple zero vanilla. Add a 1/4 cup of peaches.

Pop that bowl in the fridge overnight. In the morning, put the oatmeal in the microwave for 50 seconds to one minute and enjoy.

I hope you have enjoyed this post. Have a great Tuesday.

Back to school lunch ideas

I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of packing lunches. I am coming up on my eighth year teaching (I got a late start) and I have packed my lunch most of those years.

Now that my oldest daughter is entering kindergarten, I will be packing her lunch as well. One of my favorite products for packing lunches is the Rubbermaid Lunch Blox. You may recall last year when I gave away a Lunch Blox kit.

I bought four of the kits so we could each have two. One to wash and one to use. We have the sandwich size, which is also perfect for salads. 

Veggie salads (source)

And pasta salad (source)

Perfect for sandwiches (source)
And other entrees as well.

For the next few months I’ll be periodically sharing ways to use the Lunch Blox system and I’ll even be giving away one of the systems in October. Stay tuned!

Easy recipes: Hummus-stuffed red peppers

Get ready for one of the easiest and tastiest recipes ever!

image

I wanted something quick, easy, cheap and healthy for my lunch this week. I’m aware of how hard it is to find something that fits all those categories. I was inspired by a good friend of mine to try this after seeing her do this one day at lunch.

image

image

You will need one bell pepper. Color is completely up to you- I used a red bell pepper because I had one. You’ll also need a small tub of hummus (again, flavor is up to you. I used Sabra Roasted Red Pepper) and some rice. I used instant brown rice.

First, cut your bell pepper in half. Pull the stem off the top of the pepper and cut out the seeds.

image

Secondly, mix your hummus and cooked, drained rice together.

image

Thirdly, pack your hollowed out peppers with the hummus and rice mixture.

image

Serve cold and enjoy. This was such a tasty lunch and it kept me really full!

I didn’t do a recipe card for this since there isn’t much to it. I hope you enjoy it!

World’s easiest egg salad

When my husband and I were first married, he requested an egg salad sandwich one night for dinner. Never having made egg salad, I began searching for a recipe. “No,” he explained. “Make it like my mama does. Here, I’ll show you.” I sat back and watched as he boiled and peeled eggs. He then put the peeled hardboiled eggs in the middle of a plate and squeezed a pile of butter on top of them.

DSC_0084

Next, he put a spoonful of mayonnaise on top of the eggs and butter. He then used his spoon to mash the eggs and mix it all together.

The result? Some really yummy, really simple egg salad.

DSC_0087

I enjoy this served hot on sandwich bread, but it’s just as good by itself. Enjoy! 🙂

Recipe: Pioneer Woman’s “Marlboro Man sandwich”

I don’t know about you guys, but I really love The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. I’ve been reading her blog for awhile and I’ve become addicted to her show while on maternity leave.

[Foodnetwork.com]

I have made several of her recipes, but this week, we found a new favorite.

Pioneer Woman’s “Marlboro Man Sandwich” is fantastic. To see her original recipe, you can go here.

The only changes I made to her recipe was to leave out the hot sauce. My nursling was grateful.

Just like Ree, I started melting butter into the skillet, then with slicing and browning the onion. Then, I removed the onion.

I then chopped the meat and melted two more tablespoons of butter into the skillet. I sprinkled seasoning salt on the meat and then browned the meat.

Then I added two more tablespoons of butter and a half cup of Worcestershire sauce.  I also added the onions back in.

I toasted the rolls and added the meat.

If I were making this sandwich for just me, I’d have added green peppers, some mozzarella cheese and some red peppers, but my hubby isn’t down with bell peppers. Or mushrooms.

Still, this sandwich is delicious and it’s great just the way I’ve made it. Pop on over to the Pioneer Woman’s blog and check out how she makes this sandwich. Like me, she is into being flexible with recipes and encouraging others to make it their own. Happy cooking, and please come back.
