Trim Healthy Mama Recipe Roundup

Who else eats according to the Trim Healthy Mama plan? I began following THM in January, after receving the book and cookbook for Christmas. Although I haven't lost any weight, I can honestly say that I am not too concerned because I wasn't overweight to begin with. My journey with THM began as an attempt to reverse pre-diabetes, which was indicated by a 5.9 on my A1C blood test. I have not had this blood test repeated yet, but I can affirm that I am feeling tons better. I have more energy and patience, and I am noticably less irritable and anxious. In the THM world, this would be called a non-scale victory! I am thankful for these benefits, which give me the motivation to keep moving toward a healthier lifestyle. 

At first, I mostly used recipes from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, but I have begun to attempt recipes that I find on various websites, too. I thought that, from time to time, I would post links to THM-friendly recipes that I have tried and enjoyed. You will find some of these below.
