Happy November friends!! This is day 5 of #NaBloPoMo and we are rockin’ over here! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know some of my fellow bloggers better this week! I wanted to share with you what a typical day in the life of a Trim Healthy Mama looks like. I have so many people ask me, “What do you eat all day?” or “I just don’t know where to start.” I know it’s frustrating. But trust me, THIS WORKS. I’ve kept my weight off since March and this morning I was still UNDER my goal weight.
Start easy then add as you go.
My advice is to start with figuring out what you like for breakfast and then conquer that. Here is a super easy breakfast I can have with my coffee and it keeps me full for three to four hours. It’s two pieces of Nature’s Own Sprouted bread (if you can’t find this, you can use Ezekiel), two triangles of Light Laughing Cow cheese, and Polaner All Fruit spread on top. This gives me the feeling of a bagel, cream cheese with jelly on it. If you need more food than this at a time, add some fruit of your choice. This would be considered in THM land, a carb meal or an E (energizing) meal.
See? Easy Peasy. Then there’s an S breakfast which stands for Satisfying Fats. Here’s my ‘go to’…
The chocolate thing is called a Cuffin. The term coined by the authors of THM. It can be ordered from the THM website. So you have cheese eggs, no joke, real deal, bacon (no nitrates!), and the chocolate cuffin.
Here’s my two lunches I’ve been using during the week.
DIY Ranch dressing, pulled pork (Crockpot all day with a can of Zevia soda poured over it.), Duke’s mayo (is there any other kind?) wrapped in a Mission low carb wrap, and tomatoes. Since this is healthy fats, this is an S meal.
Ahhh, the classic BLT!! This is considered a crossover meal since there’s carbs in the sprouted bread and then fats from the bacon and Duke’s mayo. I can eat XO meals since I’m below goal weight! You’ll get there too!!!
This is Dreamy Chicken Lazone (Trim Healthy Table page 50) and we had it with sauteed veggies!
There you go! I hope this gave you some ideas and helped a little. Enjoy!
Keep it Simple,
