I bought two beautiful, huge, perfect for stuffing zucchini and I was super excited to use them. I went to get them out of the refrigerator and they were all mushy and rotten. I was so upset! I think I bought them perfectly ripe on Sunday and by thursday they were finished. I asked Cody to run to the grocery store to get some more zucchini and of course they only had tiny, not for stuffing zucchini. And with that, unstuffed zucchini was born. If you are following Trim Healthy Mama, this is an S.

Unstuffed Zucchini

Unstuffed Zucchini

1 pound of ground italian sausage (you can use whatever ground meat you like)
1 large yellow onion, diced
4-5 little zucchini or 2 large ones
1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilis
1 12oz bag of frozen cauliflower (I put mine into my ninja and chopped it up some)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional, I like spicy!)

Cook the sausage in a skillet, once its cooked drain the fat and add in the onion and cook til the onions are softened. In a mixing bowl mix together the tomatoes, zucchini, cream cheese, cauliflower and seasonings, then add in the sausage mixture. Stir everything together and pour into a baking dish. Top with the cheddar cheese and cover with foil. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes, you want the zucchini to be soft when its finished.
Serve with a side salad with creamy ranch dressing.

I have absolutely loved my journey with Trim Healthy Mama, I have lost 33 pounds so far and I feel amazing. I have the energy to go to the gym every morning and still have plenty left in me to play with Easton the rest of the day. I was looking at pictures this morning and was so happy to see a difference in my face. The first picture is from right before Christmas and the bottom one is from this morning. Excuse the lack of make up, I took this at 7 this morning. If you are curious about Trim Healthy Mama please click here and my affiliated link will take you there.
December and June

Remember, you are worth taking care of. You deserve to be healthy and feel great!
Happy Cooking!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Yesterday we made our weekly trip to Costco and Cody bought a package of their cookies. If you have never had a Costco cookie, don’t try one. They are addicting and they will call your name until you have eaten the entire container. While we were shopping I could not stop thinking about those cookies in the shopping cart and I knew that when we got home I was going to eat them, unless I made some cookies that were just as delicious.
I purposely left the cookies in the large box from Costco so I couldn’t hear them yelling for me to eat them while I quickly made my own on plan cookies.
Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup of natural creamy peanut butter (make sure the ingredients are only peanuts and salt)
1 cup erythritol
3/4 cup Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend
3 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat your oven to 350 and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your stand mixer, mix the peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla together and then add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix until its all incorporated. Using slightly wet hands shape the dough into one inch balls and place on the baking sheet. They don’t really spread so they can be pretty close together. Dip a fork into some warm water and press onto the dough balls to make a criss cross design and smash the balls to look like cookies. I sprinkled a little bit of erythritol on top of the cookies. Bake them for 15 min, or until they are firm to touch. Remove them from the baking sheet and let them cool on a wire rack.
If you have never used the THM Baking blend it is amazing! You can order it here and I get a small percentage of the sale to help keep my blog going and keep the recipes coming.


It is another rainy day in Texas and I wanted to make a delicious breakfast for my two boys. I absolutely love french toast and the original always left me feeling sick and gave me a major sugar rush. When I was a child, before I was allowed to use the stove I would soak my bread in egg and microwave it. Thankfully, my cooking skills have matured since then and I know how to make some delicious french toast, that is fully on my Trim Healthy Mama plan and is every bit as tasty as the original. Those who are following THM this is an E meal.

French Toast

French Toast

1 cup of egg whites
5 slices of Ezekiel bread (I use this kind and I find it in the freezers at Kroger)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1.5 Tbs water

Whisk the egg whites, vanilla, cinnamon, and water together. I like to use water in my eggs because it makes them nice and fluffy. I also use it in omelets.
Spray a nonstick skillet with a light coating of coconut oil and turn the heat to medium. Soak the Ezekiel bread in the egg white mixture until its slightly spongey. Put the bread in the skillet and cook for about 3-5 min on each side, or until it is nice and golden brown.

Top with some powdered Erythritol. I buy mine from THM and put about 1/4 in my single cup ninja and blend it til its powdered. It taste exactly like powdered sugar, but does not impact your blood sugar level. I enjoyed some nonfat greek yogurt and some fresh strawberries on the side.
It was baby approved too!

yum yum!
