Trim Healthy Table contains all of Serene and Pearl’s best tips, tricks and encouragement for families, whether large or small. I LOVED their ideas on ways to get picky eaters gobbling down veggies and other healthy foods they usually detest. You will learn how to painlessly use whole, unprocessed foods, including blood-sugar friendly carbs, fats, proteins, fruits and vegetables to create meals even the fussiest kids (and husbands) will love. You’ll also learn how one basic meal can make a whole family happy even with different nutritional needs.
The quick and easy recipes include lots of one-pot dishes!! They include recipes for skillet meals, slow cooker meals, AND also electric pressure cooker meals, casserole and soups!! It makes meal time preparation SO much easier to have different ways to prepare the recipes. I LOVE using my pressure cooker when I am running short on time! With the recipes you can wake up to hearty breakfasts, prepare bars for on-the-go or try a creamy, quick-to-make smoothie, even Indulge yourself with the many trimming desserts…cake for breakfast is celebrated! And, if you’re simply looking for single serve 5 – 10 minute meals, the “Hangry Meal” chapter has you covered.
In addition to the hundreds of recipes, included is a “Simple Start Guide to the Trim Healthy Plan” which concisely explains how you can trim down by getting your blood sugar under control and how to, ever so gently, help other members in your family who may be struggling with weight issues. So, gather your family, bring them to the Trim Healthy Table… eat up… and trim down! I think it’s going to be wonderful for OUR family!!
We LOVE Mexican food at our house, so I thought I would try Trim Healthy Table’s Chicken Fajita Soup. As I said above, I LOVE that each recipe has different ways to prepare the food. This one has three ways – stove-top, slow cooker AND pressure cooker directions. I used my handy pressure cooker and I was about to make this recipe in less than 30 minutes.
Another thing I love about the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook is that, as busy moms, they have incorporated ways to make preparing dinner even easier. For example, they suggested to put all of the ingredients for this recipe, except for the chicken broth, in a zip lock bag and putting it in the fridge to marinate overnight. So when it was time to fix dinner, all we had to do was put it in the pressure cooker and add the chicken broth! My daughter was able to do it without any problems!
25 Minutes later we had delicious soup. SO easy!!
