If you've followed my blog for any length of time, then you'll know that I go through spurts when I like to stock my freezer full of yummy goodness. Well, I thought I'd try to do that with a few Trim Healthy Mama ideas, too. I don't have a whole lot to share, but I'll share two that I did this week. I'll also share some others that I've frozen just because they made too much to eat and store in the fridge.
E Taco Salad mix
This is 1/2 cup taco seasoned ground beef (drained/rinsed) and 1/2 cup black beans. This is a great start to an E taco salad. I've had this with lettuce, a bit of Mexican cheese (less than 2 tbsp), and Walden Farms fat free/calorie free dressing (the ones sweetened with monk fruit, not sucralose). I used 1 large can of black beans and 1.5 lbs of organic grass-fed beef...I was able to get 8 servings.
S, E, or FP Grilled Chicken
I got the marinade recipe for this grilled chicken from a fellow homeschool and THM friend. It's probably not for the purist, but I don't claim to be one. It's 3/4 cup Kraft Lite Zesty Italian dressing and 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce (sugar free). I mixed all of that together and added three packs of all-natural thin-sliced chicken breasts. I let that marinate over night, and then I grilled it up the next day. Since I tossed out over half of the marinade, there's really not enough fat or carbs in this to matter. I think it was around 1g of each, so that's how it can fit into all three meal types. I was going to slice it and freeze it that way, but I decided to just leave them whole to give more serving options. This can be served up with some non-starchy veggies with butter for an S, served up with a sweet potato or other plan-approved grain for an E, or eaten over a salad with the Walden Farms dressing for an FP. The versatility is endless.
Other THM items that freeze well...
Now, I've also frozen several different items once I was tired of eating on them for a few days.
THM sausage balls
THM fudgy brownies
chocolate chip cookies
I've also heard that the THM E pancakes from the book freeze well, too, but I haven't tried that yet. There are three of us in my family that'll eat those, so they don't typically last too long when I make up a batch.
