Golden Goulash

As a mom of 7, I love a good skillet meal. If it includes potatoes, then my whole crew is excited too!

With the addition of potatoes back into the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle, thanks Pearl and Serene, we are finding all the ways to use these little buddies in new and healthy way.

I have included links to some of my favorite products below. If you choose to purchase something through the links provided, I may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. This helps me continue to provide free recipes and content here, and support my little, large family.

Gluten Free Menu Plan

Some posts on this blog contain affiliate links. If you click them, I may earn a small commission. It does not cost you anything extra, but this commission helps support the work of running my site. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.

Are you a gluten free household, and following the Trim Healthy Plan? I got you, Lovely Lady!

I am sharing our weekly menu plan for our family of 9, for the week of April 24-30, 2022.

If I had the freezer space to do it, once a month cooking would be my ideal way to manage meal preparation, but most of our freezer space is tied up in our home-raised meats and frozen fruits and veggie stash to help us in our rural western Montana life.

We also plan our food days to coincide with our Saturday sabbath, or Shabbat, and our Leftover day is Sunday.

This helps us eat our way through our leftovers, while also giving this Mama a day off from cooking….WIN!

If you don’t have a routine with your leftovers, I would implore you to develop one to save your sanity and cut down on your cooking, or steal mine. You can read about it here.

Peanut Sauce

One of my favorite things, EVER, is rice and peanut sauce! We had an authentic Thai restaurant in our town growing up, and it was a must for me every time we went.

I have wanted to recreate that meal for a long time, especially now that we no longer live there, but I kept getting caught up trying to figure out how to make it a sauce for every occasion, because the rice is very important to me here.

Have I told you how much I love defatted peanut powder? This is one of the reasons why!

Ingredients:

We buy most of our bulk spices here

Method:

Put all dry ingredients in a sauce pan, then add wet ingredients. Whisk together until there are no more lumps. Place heat on high, whisking frequently until it begins to thicken, but not quite boiling. Turn off heat and continue to whisk so that it doesn’t get burnt on the bottom as it continues to thicken as it cools.

***This is a fuel pull recipe on the Trim Healthy Plan, up to 1/4 of the whole batch, and this recipe was plenty for our family of 9.***

Celebration Sip

If you live a sugar free lifestyle, certain traditions become more of a challenge, especially when concentrated fruit juices are at the heart of them.

Specifically communion, biblical feasts and celebrations like Shabbat(Jewish Sabbath from sundown Friday evening to Sundown Saturday evening).

As a Trim Healthy Mama, I don’t drink juice, specifically concentrated fruit juices without the whole fruit included for fiber. So, this is SIPPER, yes I was able to make it a sipper, is going to be my new celebratory grape juice-style drink!

Ingredients:

Method:

Put the Butterfly pea flowers or tea bags in 2 cups of hot water, for several hours or overnight to steep. Strain and put into a quart sized vessel. Add all other ingredients, and mix well. Fill to the top of the vessel with ice cubes and use as an all day sipper on the Trim Healthy Plan or a sugar free celebratory drink to replace grape juice and wine as you would like.

Chili Mac

This recipe really brings back some memories. We ate chili mac, well really anything with macaroni and cheese, when my dad was away hunting. Mac was not his favorite food.

And, because our children have celiac disease, you can read more about that here, they had never had anything like it before. But, desperation is where recipes are born, so here is my gluten free rendition of this old favorite.

Ingredients:

We buy most of our bulk spices here, and you can find more of the products we use here.

Method:

Brown Meat, and drain. Add diced onion and Chili seasoning, cooking until onions are translucent. Drain and rinse konjac noodles while the meat mixture cooks. Add other ingredients and cook on medium heat for a few minutes to meld flavors. Taste and adjust to suit you and your family.

***This recipe could be made S, E or, FP on the Trim Healthy Plan. Just pay attention to the fat content of your ground meat, and choose your sides and condiments accordingly.***

Chili Seasoning

It is cold, and icy here in Western Montana. Perfect weather for a great big pot of Chili to be simmering on the stove!

I like a really flavor full chili, and once we had to be cautious of gluten in our foods, that made it a challenge to just grab a seasoning packet off the grocery shelf like I used to.

I have a bit of a DIY attitude, and many of the recipes I have tried for chili seasoning did not leave me or my family completely satisfied. So, when I tweaked it enough that my husband looked at me and said, “this one is good, hunee!” I knew it was the winner!

I have included links to products my family uses below. If you choose to purchase something through the links, I may receive a commission at no additional cost to you. This will support my little, large, family and help me continue to provide free content here for you to enjoy.

Ingredients

We buy most of our bulk spices from here

Method

  • Mix everything together, getting the clumps out before adding to your soup. This mixture is for one large pot of chili, large meaning it will feed more than 12 people because that is how we roll around here.
  • If your pot of soup is small, add by the teaspoon until you reach your desired level of flavoring. We enjoy very flavorful food, and I suggest that you own your flavors here.

***If you are following the Trim Healthy Plan, this blend would make a great addition to any chili of your choice, in any fuel type.***

Method:

Brown the ground meat, and drain off fat. Add the Chili Seasoning, tomatoes, and water (if using). Let simmer for 25 minutes so that the flavors meld together. Own your flavors and adjust if necessary.

***The fuel that this chili falls into on the Trim Healthy Plan is going to be determined by the amount of fat in the meat you use, 96% or lower would be E or FP, and anything higher will be an S***
