Wise Shepherd’s Pie by Trim Health Mamas

This recipe is a keeper. I have loved shepherd’s pie for many years and this one is a bit healthier than most. It has more vegetables in it than I remember from my childhood. This recipe always brings back many sweet memories. Whenever I went with my Aunt June to her Mom’s home I always hoped that she made her Shepherd Pie. Mrs Cottrell sure could cook.

When I made it as an adult I only added onion and green beans for the filling. The Trim Healthy Mamas add more vegetables. I have found that I need more vegetables than I had been eating so this recipe is a plus. I won’t be giving you the recipe unfortunately as this recipe is only available in their cookbook on page 134.

I love this cookbook. I use it daily. I even took it to Fed Ex today and had it spiral bound instead of the glued paperback that it comes in. I intend to use this cookbook for the duration of my diet. I am down 12 pounds now and I am not going hungry at all. The food is wonderful. To get the cookbook click below.

Thin Mint Chocolate Chip Shake

Once again this isn’t my recipe so I will share the link under the pic. My pic isn’t glamorous or fancy. The recipe makes a single serving of almost a quart of shake so I just used a mason jar to drink out of. I had it for breakfast this morning and it was so good that I worried that it would spike my glucose. When I tested two hours later my level was only at 90. I will make this often! I found it in the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook but it is also available at the link below. I highly recommend getting the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. I am getting fabulous recipes out of it and my glucose is staying close to 100 with each meal.

Caramelized Onion & Bacon Smothered Pork Chops

This recipe is once again not mine. I made it exactly as it was written on another blog so I will post the link under the picture. I am really enjoying doing the Thin Healthy Mama plan and the food is fabulous while the weight is coming off. The plan is big on eating veggies so I am finding unique ways to add them to all of my meals and snacks. This recipe is so simple to make and very light and filling. Another meal made in less than 30 minutes. The brussel sprouts were frozen and I simply heated in the microwave and lightly topped with parmasan cheese. Enjoy!!!

Cottage Berry Whip

This is a Trim Healthy Mama recipe and it is fabulous. I had several people recommend it. I do not care for cottage cheese but let me tell you that you will NOT know that it is in this recipe. This is a light dessert that tastes like Strawberry ice cream. You MUST Try this!!!

Italian Meatball Casserole

This is wonderful. I made it tonight for dinner and it is delicious. I made it exactly as the other blog posted so I am sharing the link under the picture.  I am currently doing the Thin Healthy Mama plan and am down 9 pounds in the last 14 days. I feel wonderful. This plan seems to be working quite well for me.

When I read the recipe I wasn’t too sure about putting so much sage in the recipe but it was wonderful so I will continue to do so. I hope that you enjoy this as well as I do. I plan to put this in my little crockpot that I take in my car for work for my lunches. You can click here for the link for the little 20 ounce lunch warmer that I use. LUNCH WARMER

Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Bacon

I made this today for lunch and it so easy to make and absolutely delicious. This is not my recipe so I will share the link to it at the bottom of the post. This one is a keeper. The blend of Parmesan and Asiago cheese with the bacon really adds a lot of flavor to it. I paired it with a lovely salad and was quite full by the end of the meal. My chicken breasts were huge so cut them in half. I can’t imagine eating an entire one. I bought them at Sam’s Club and theirs tends to be quite large.
