Ingredients:

Large Version – Fits into a 1/2 gallon mason jar

Small Version – Fits into a quart mason jar

Method:

Place all ingredients into the blender, here is the one I used, and blend on high until it is creamy and emulsified.

If you follow the Trim Healthy Plan, you can have up to 1/2 Cup of this in a Fuel Pull setting, as written. 1/4 Cup in a sipper.

***If you cannot tolerate sunflower seeds, you can use any nut or seed butter in place of this ingredient for a crazy easy DIY dairy free milk recipe. Some ideas include tahini, hemp butter, pumpkin seed butter, almond butter, even peanut butter. The final 2 options(almond and peanut butter) would, obviously, NOT be nut free, so use them at your own discretion. And, you would need to calculate the fat for your new variety of butter, to see how it fits into your Trim Healthy Plan. If you cannot tolerate sunflower lecithin, you can leave it out, you will just need to shake it up before you use it.***

Buckwheat English Muffins

This oat-free spin on my Gluten Free Sourdough English Muffins, is hearty in structure and has a very earthy taste due to the buckwheat flour.

My large family really enjoy buckwheat bread-like products, and these are one of their favorites!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Buckwheat Flour, we get ours from here or here
  • 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Sourdough Starter, or if you do not have a mature starter and would like to purchase some of mine dry, you can go here.
  • 1 Cup untreated water
  • 2/3 Cup Egg Whites
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Mineral Salt

Method:

Pull unfed, active sourdough starter out and mix with the water and the buckwheat flour.
Let it sit for 4-12 hours, I have let it sit 24 hours and it still worked well.
Mix in the remaining ingredients.
Let sit another 30 minutes to let the Baking Powder and Baking Soda activate fully.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Prepare the baking sheet with Aluminum or parchment, and wide-mouth mason jar lid rings. Or, use a silicone muffin top pan.
Spray lightly in the rings with cooking spray.
Fill to just under the top of the rim with the rested batter.
Bake for 25-35 minutes
Pull from the oven and let them sit and be cool enough to pull the muffins out of the rings without burning yourself.
Let fully cool before you cut into them.
These are compatible with an E meal on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, keeping it to 1 with room for some fruit, or 2 with no additional carb sources.

Too Easy Tomato Soup

When we went gluten and dairy free it was amazing what foods were full of both. I read every label, and many times came up empty on our typical foods due to the now taboo ingredients in them or cross-contamination.

One of these was canned tomato soups.

Thanks to our new Lifestyle plan we had an option, but I tweaked it and made it even easier to mix and serve, and we like the extra texture from the crushed tomatoes.

Ingredients

We get most of our bulk spices from here, and if you are interested in looking at any of the other products we use, you can find them here.

Method

Put all ingredients in a medium stock pot and add water to thin it out to the consistency you desire, and heat until a temperature that you enjoy, or allow to simmer on low for 30-60 minutes to allow the flavors to mix together.

***This a fuel pull addition to a meal on the Trim Healthy Plan, but it does need to be paired with a significant protein source like lean chicken breast or a protein drink. You can also add it to an E or S meal to help fill in.***

Single Serve Free-From Bread

This is a simple recipe for quick gluten free bread, that an allergy mama can use.

I do not own a microwave, so if you make this I would love to know how long you cooked it, and how it worked for you, so these are made in a mini waffle iron. Because I own six of them, you know I have a large family, I mix these up in three small bowls and do the top and bottom at the same time.

***I have linked some of the products we used below. If you choose to make a purchase through any of these links I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. This helps me continue to create free content, and support my little, large family.***

Ingredients:

Method:

Mix all dry ingredients, and then add the wet. The batter should be looser than a microwave muffin batter, but not soupy. Have a mini waffle iron, or two, hot and ready. Spray lightly with coconut cooking spray(or any other you can use). Add half the batter to the waffle iron, and cook for about 5 minutes until browning and cooked through. Then, add the other half to the waffle iron and cook he same way.

***This is a fuel pull bread on its own, but keep an eye on your added fat if you are using anything other than the Creamy Dreamy Hemp Protein Powder in your baking blend, because it could tip you into a light S or crossover on the Trim Healthy Mama plan.***

Creamy Pickle Soup

I came across a pickle soup online, but it contained ingredients that did not fall into our way of eating. So, I went to the drawing board to make my own, because my children have a low-key obsession with pickles. And, I wanted to make it dairy free, because sometimes I like a bit of a challenge!

I think it is safe to say that this was one of my recipes that would either totally win my large family over, or totally flop and the chickens would reap the benefits of leftovers.

It won them over, and now I hope it does you too!

Ingredients:

Method:

Put 5 Cups of water into a medium stock pot with the broccoli, okra, and onion. Bring to a boil, and place most of the vegetables into the blender with a slotted spoon along with 2-3 cups of the water. Add seasonings, collagen and gelatin. Then, blend the mixture until you can no longer see pieces of okra. Add back to the pot, along with all the other diced veggies, additional water, pickles and pickle juice. Bring to a boil again, and simmer for about 20 minutes.

***This recipe is a fuel pull on the Trim Healthy Plan. You may choose to include lean chicken if you want to, and still keep it in this fuel type.***

Root Beer Shake

I used to be a bit of a jerk when I was a teen…a Soda Jerk, that is! Yep, I worked in an old-fashioned soda shop for 4 years.

Hand-dipped shakes, floats, fries, and hand-made burgers were my whole world there. I made al the things, and the recipes are forever etched into my brain. My kids were pretty impressed when I made them a shake for one of their birthdays this year with huckleberries that we had picked ourselves in the woods.

Almost all of these things I used to make, I have been able to recreate on our gluten free lifestyle, and this shake has been on my list for some time to make a recipe for my THM Lifestyle, because it was my absolute favorite from when I worked at the soda shop.

Think of the best vanilla-flavored shake you have ever had, and then add a bit more vanilla, and you have it!

Ingredients

Method

Peel the banana and freeze it the night before. You need this to be frozen solid. Then add it and all other ingredients to the blender, except the protein powder of your choice. Blend until smooth and free of banana or ice chunks. Add your 1/4 Cup of protein powder and blend until fully incorporated.

***This is an E meal or snack on the Trim Healthy Plan***

Nursing Mama Nuggets

I became a nursing mama for the 7th time in 2020. And, thanks to Trim healthy mama I feel that this has been one of my best post partum periods.

I have not needed a whole lot of support with teas or anything else, no extra pumping, I just eat lovely God-made foods that have helped my youngest beauty thrive while I have released weight consistently.

I have discovered two ingredients that have really kicked my production up, without me even trying to, consistently. Duo Greens powder and Oatmeal in any form.

So, I made these to help support a mama on the go, or those middle of the night nursing sessions that leave you floundering for something to stuff in your mouth so you can get back to sleep when the baby does.

Ingredients:

Method:

I mix all the dry ingredients together and then add the Applesauce. Mix it until it comes together with no dry powder, and you can leave it in the bowl and eat it straight or make into a bar/balls.

***This is a single serve addition to an E meal or snack on the Trim Healthy Mama Plan. Please add some berries or a half a banana to this to round out your meal***

Dog Gone Good Dip

Because we travel, at least monthly if not more often, 1 1/2-2 hours to get our groceries we have discovered some really tasty on-plan options to grab at the grocery store. Did you know the grocery store is the ultimate fast-food restaurant? It’s true!

One thing in particular is an almond-based dip at Walmart with a very descriptive name outlining a common name for female canines. Apt description, but it makes me cringe when I post the pictures on my THM Journey App because I don’t say the word in my own home, as a descriptor.

I had to try and recreate it, if only to be able to stop posting the picture of the title from the grocery store version, right? According to my husband, and spicy-food-loving second son, I nailed it in the flavor department!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Blanched Almonds or Raw Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 4-8 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

Method:

Soak your sunflower seeds overnight with cool water, covering them by at least 2 inches. Then, drain off the soaking water the following day when you are ready to prepare the dip. Place all ingredients and seasonings in a food processor or high-powered blender. Scrape the sides down frequently, and blend until smooth.

You can add water by the Tablespoon to thin it out to your liking.

***This recipe is an S on the Trim Healthy Plan, please add some non-starchy veggies to this to round out your meal***

Faux Pickled Ginger

We have come to really appreciate “sushi” made at home. It is a fun treat, even though it takes a bit of time to assemble for our large family.

I love my sushi with the pickled ginger, but ginger root is hard to come by in our local grocery store, so I worked with what I had….cucumber!

I am happy to say that all the humans in my home thought it was a great addition to our sushi nights, and we will definitely be making this again soon!
