Yay for E’s!! So excited to be on Day 3 and get to put some E’s back into my diet!
Healthy carbs are my favorites, but I know that some Trim Healthy Mamas struggle with embracing the E meal, especially if you’re coming from a low carb background. If you need any further ideas, here’s some of my most popular E posts:
I plan to continue this week mostly dairy free. I think my prolactin levels have been higher this year (I struggled to lose weight while nursing my second baby, and then my body found it hard to wean her even though she was ready). Sometimes dairy and high prolactin levels don’t play well together.
This also forces me out of my E comfort zone. But a THM Fuel Cycle isn’t necessarily about easy is it?
It’s about trying new things, keeping your body guessing, and embracing the plan in its striped down form.
So, these next two E days I’ll be experimenting with some E recipes that are new to me, and I’ll let you know how it goes!
E’s are also great for the ole grocery budget! Many E foods are also inexpensive. If you’re looking for more ways to do THM on a budget, here’s 14 of my favorite tips!
oatmeal with collagen, peaches, vanilla unsweetened almond milk, and sweetener
1 slice sprouted toast with small smear of butter
Trimmy Light from the THM Cookbook
Lemon Pucker Gummies from the THM Cookbook
peach oolong iced tea, sweetened with stevia
Bean Boss Soup from the THM Cookbook, I omitted the corn since corn is not super weight loss friendly, and that’s the goal of this Fuel Cycle
Salad topped with chicken breast, cucumbers, carrots, vinegar, and 1 tsp olive oil
Blueberry kefir smoothie (kefir is mostly lactose free, and I had 1/2 cup that I needed to use up)- Mini Recipe- 1/2 cup single-ferment kefir (it’s an E), 1/2 cup blueberries, sweetener to taste
(DF version— if you need to be dairy free, blend 1/4 cup oats into powder, then swap the kefir for 1c almond milk, add 1 Tbl collagen for protein, and add 3/4 cup blueberries and sweetener; blend together and enjoy)
cucumber from my garden
Raspberry Lemonade Mini-Recipe- 2-3 Tbl lemon juice, 1-2 doonks THM stevia, 3 drops lemon essential oil, 6-10 frozen raspberries below the enough ice and water to fill a 32 oz mason jar
Roasted tilapia- I lightly coat a pan with coconut oil cooking spray, place the tilapia on it, and sprinkle with Creole seasoning or garlic and Italian seasoning
Baked sweet potato topped with cinnamon
Roasted zucchini and summer squash- Mini Recipe- line cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with coconut cooking spray. Slice veggies thinly and lay out in a single layer on prepared cookie sheet. Sprinkle garlic, salt, and Italian seasoning on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees until veggies get crispy.
Healthy Peach Crisp from My Montana Kitchen
1 cup bone broth (for protein and nice, strong nails)
Tomorrow is another E Fuel Day! See ya then!!
