I have been trying to get back on track with Trim healthy mama for the last few weeks starting with mostly S meals. Especially for dinner I really prefer S meals, not only because they are so tasty but because they come much easier to me. Not to mention it my hubby loves them because they don’t feel like diet meals. For those of you not familiar with the THM eating plan “S” stands for Satisfying, because these are full of satisfying fats and very low in carbohydrates. Now I am not a food purist or being a super stickler to THM right now as I get back on plan so check the ingredients to make sure this fits your version of the plan!
I have been wanting to share some of my recipes for a while now, however I don’t do recipes all that often. But since I know I am not the only one that cooks this way I figured I would share my basic ideas of how I make my meals and hopefully it is enough to go on! A few that I have actual recipes for I will share, and hopefully someday soon I will get down to writing real recipes for some of these. When I go grocery shopping the last couple times I make sure I have everything I need to make these ten meals. Since we have other random meals mixed in and stretch it for over two weeks we haven’t minded just rotating through these same options.
I buy cheap pork sirloin roast from winco, a lot of times it is one of their cheapest proteins. I put it in the crockpot (frozen solid most of the time) with lots of Italian seasonings, like fennel, oregano, parsley, garlic salt, and basil. After it cooks for about 6 or 8 hour on low. I slice it up and than put it back in the crockpot to soak in the juices. This makes it much more flavorful and moist!
This is pretty much whatever kind of large salad I feel like making. Lately usually a big garden salad, loaded with veggies, topped with chicken, boiled egg, diced bacon and sunflower seeds. I do best when I have a lot of salad stuff prepped in the fridge to use as lunches all week too. But since Julio doesn’t mind salads for dinner we usually do a salad night every once in a while.
