You a Trim Healthy Mama, or wanna be? This is "on plan".
THIS IS AN "S"! Enjoy as a dessert after a delicious S meal, or as a Satisfying snack, all on its own! Take a few minutes, whip this up... and you can thank me later.
Easy-Cheesy, low-carb GOODNESS...
When my husband and I married, I was a TERRIBLE cook. Thankfully, no one had told him to look for a woman who knew her way around the kitchen! Due to his poor choice, he was forced to survive on boxed rice and noodle dishes, canned soups and chili, hot dogs and store-bought pizzas. Now, to balance my otherwise awful "domestic skills", I did bake some pretty mean cookies... but it was a sad existence.
We had a friend known, coast to coast, for her delicious meals - especially desserts. She and her husband were less-than-healthy, but he always had a big grin on his face as the fellows swooned over his wife's cooking... My beloved was certainly not the only husband who perked up at the mention of a fellowship dinner! She worked magic in the kitchen, that was clear!
I really did want to be a good cook, and after much time buried under piles of cookbooks, I was finally able to hold my own with a few tasty dishes! Soon, I was turning out some really great meals... but unfortunately, these were also contributing to weight-gain... I had started off my marriage "chunky", so this was not good!
Though I was placing great emphasis on "healthy" foods, the scale kept ticking upward. (At age 41, Trim Healthy Mama saved the day!)
Happily, after some tweaking to fit the THM plan, our family-favorites still taste incredible -- but now they are slimming, trimming and contributing to better health! Take a look at the meal below... This would fit as an "S" meal, for Trim Healthy Mama... and YUM is it ever Satisfying!
Quick, easy and super-delish!

"S" for Trim Healthy Mama!
RunAmok Mama's Raspberry Shortcake!
I am on a shortcake kick, can you tell?
If you have not tried my Strawberry Shortcake recipe, you should. It is a guilt-free "FP" for Trim Healthy Mama -- though, truthfully, there is NEVER any "guilt" with mealtime when following THM, is there?
If you are looking for a filling but "lighter" snack or meal, this Raspberry Shortcake falls into the FP category - so is low in both fats and carbs - Making it a sure "waist-trimmer"! The sweet-tart of the raspberries baked right into the delicate, semi-sweet shortcake and topped with creamy, protein-rich, stevia-sweetened Greek Yogurt will make your taste-buds dance with joy!
Yes... for those just stumbling in here and wondering what the heck "Trim Healthy Mama" is... You can eat this, while boosting health AND trimming your figure! I promise.
RunAmok Mama's Strawberry Shortcake!

Don't you love waking up to a lazy morning? Knowing you can take things slow, and enjoy a leisurely breakfast?
Comfort food and a cup of coffee or tea? A few minutes to browse your facebook or check emails?
This super-easy Quick Mix recipe takes less than 10 minutes to whip up - so even on a fast-paced day, you can take a few minutes to enjoy some serious comfort-food!
Fresh berries, served with real whipped cream over a light, sweet shortcake... I like mine still warm - with the berry juice and whipped cream just starting to sink into the shortcake... Ummmm.
Served as shown, this is an "S" for Trim Healthy Mama! Yes, THIS is "diet" food!
Some kind of diet, huh?

Are you out of THM Baking Blend??
If you have read my glowing REVIEW on the Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend, you know I highly recommend it. It is, truly, sheer AWESOMENESS in a bag! Really.
Due to its versatility and immense popularity, this Baking Blend has been, on occasion... <whispers>... "Out Of Stock". This could, potentially, send a person into that deep, dark, inky-black blackness of despair -- especially if they have plans for "RunAmok Mama's Strawberry Shortcake" or the "Luscious Lemon Cake", found on page 289 of the new Trim Healthy Mama Plan!
Trim Healthy Mama took a lot of time and expense to develop this exceptional product; as a proprietary blend, some of the ingredients were processed in such a way as to produce a "lighter" product, fitting the "FP" category. *If you are following Trim Healthy Mama, you will know that "FP" stands for "Fuel Pull", and simply means an ingredient or food item which is low in both fats and carbohydrates.
Because this product is so sought after, I regularly see people share "copy-cat" recipe versions of the Baking Blend. Unfortunately, most copy-cat recipes cause confusion and some contribute to weight-loss stalls as they are, nutritionally, way off the mark from the real Baking Blend.
I am sharing a recipe here that I think you will all enjoy. Now, as a disclaimer, this is NOT the recipe for "THE" Baking Blend... however, for someone who wants to try their hand at making their "own" baking mix, this is pretty EPIC. Trust me.
Ok, so I am just going to come right out and say it... Trim Healthy Mama's Baking Blend is "da bomb!"
Really, it just IS.
This gluten-free, low-glycemic baking mix promotes a trim waistline while packing a nutritional punch and promoting healthy digestion. Easy on blood sugar, and light on calories, this blend is convenient, delicious, satisfying and makes baking healthy goodies an absolute snap!
As it well-should, the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook features this Baking Blend in approximately 15% of the 350 recipes - so while not necessary for your weight-loss success, this is certainly a terrific "add" to your THM kitchen!
Versatile, this blend can be used in sweet or savory desserts or dishes! You can find this used in such recipe greats as: "Luscious Lemon Cake", "Chocolate Skinny Chip Muffin", "Apple Cinnamon Swirl Muffin", "Glosted Raspberry Muffins", "Chocolate Truffle Cake", "Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Cake", "Glazed Crumb Cake", "Time For Lime Cake", "Believe It Or Not Chocolate Chip Cookies", "Key Lime Pie", "Zapple Crumble", "Meadow's Lemon Coconut Truffles", "Chicken Pot Pie", "Cornbread Crusted Mexican Pie", "Spinach and Sausage Quiche", "Tuscan Sausage and Egg Bake", "Mama's Famous Meatloaf", "Super Salmon Patties", "Fried Breaded Fish", "Swiss Bread", "Cheddar Herb Biscuits", "Trim Corn Bread", "Perfect Pizza", "Bring On Da Buttah Pancakes", "Welcome Back Waffles", "Powdered Cinnamon Sugar Donuts", "Chocolate Drizzled Donuts, "Jelly Donuts"... Well, you get the idea!
What if you don't have this amazing, super-awesome-deliciousness?? <insert lip quiver>
Well... You may find yourself sitting quietly, tears pooling in your eyes and tracing lonely little streaks down your face, chest heaving with pent up sobs... and a deep, dark, inky-black blackness of despair may settle all around you. Now, please note the "may"... but who wants to risk this?
This agony can be avoided by simply purchasing Trim Healthy Mama's Baking Blend.
You can purchase this, and many other terrific deals by following our affiliate link! Sweeteners, food products, skin-care, books and eBooks - All at a great price!
Now, obviously, the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook is "full of awesome", just look at that short list of mouthwatering goodness up there... and then envision 350, Trim & Healthy, life-changing recipes. It is worth every penny... so be sure to pick up the Trim Healthy Mama Plan along with the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook!
If you have not had a chance to read the original, "Trim Healthy Mama"... I highly encourage you to do so. I easily lost 53# on this plan...
While patiently waiting for your THM Baking Blend to arrive...
Be sure to check out RunAmok Mama's Quick Mix!
RunAmok Mama's Sizzling "S-Bombs"
With the long holiday weekend coming up, I know many of you will be eager to break out that grill once more! Mouthwatering, satisfying fun! Your holiday experience will be complete when you enjoy this awesomely "authentic" camp-food!
Super-versatile, S-Bombs can be served as a stand-alone meal, or accompany all the goods of a full-on BBQ... Either way... JUST... YUM.
For all the allure, S-Bombs are simple to prepare, and can be cooked over the grill, in the oven, or even IN A CAMP FIRE! Depending upon how you tweak these, the recipe can be S or even fit as an E for Trim Healthy Mama... So be excited... Very exited!
Considering fire-season has been harsh for many areas, that campfire idea may have to wait until late spring or early summer... If your area is at high-risk of fire, please don't go all "crazy-camper" and start a wildfire! In the meanwhile, I am giving the directions for cooking on a BBQ grill. In a pinch, this can be easily adapted to a regular oven.
