Welcome back! I just posted a WOMP (What’s on My Plate?) post last Saturday, but I’m posting another one only a few days later because I’m heading to PA tomorrow. I’ll be gone for about a week, but I hope to get back into the WOMP groove two weeks from today. And don’t worry – I have other posts scheduled to go out while I’m gone, so you won’t be without recipe inspiration! Coming up: Velvety Cappuccino, a post with pictures from our South Carolina “blizzard” this past weekend, a venison stew recipe (a THM:E meal!), Chunky Monkey Chia Pudding, and a Japanese Chicken recipe that your whole family will love!
One thing I noticed while scanning the pictures in today’s WOMP post is that I need to eat more THM:E suppers and lunches instead of getting stuck in the oatmeal-for-breakfast rut. Oatmeal for breakfast is just a really easy way to get those E meals in, but I think my body would benefit from getting E meals at different times of day to shake things up. Implementing different carb sources like sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, and fruit would be helpful as well.
Did you try any new recipes this week? Comment below and tell me about them!
If you’re new here, these “What’s on My Plate?” posts are meant to give you inspiration and show you just how easy healthy eating can be! They are not professionally-styled photo shoots, nor do they necessarily catalogue everything I ate in a week’s time. These posts aren’t meant to be guides for serving size or anything like that. I don’t always have everything on my plate at the beginning of the meal when I get my camera out (and I don’t always get my camera out, period). Please just use these posts as inspiration for what to eat, not how much to eat.

(E) Oatmeal with a dab of peanut butter (stay under 5g fat in an E meal), some THM Super Sweet Blend, and some maple syrup (which is not on-plan for THM because it is so high on the glycemic index, but I make a personal choice to use it once in a while in an E setting. Use sugar-free maple-flavored syrup to stay on-plan.)
(E) Oatmeal with cocoa powder and THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder and a splash of skim milk (very small amounts are allowed once in awhile on THM in an E setting)
(S) A fried taco (check out this recipe for inspiration) using one of the mini Joseph’s pitas filled with some reduced-fat cream cheese and peanut butter, sprinkled with THM Super Sweet Blend, fried in coconut oil (I fried some frozen strawberries and cranberries with it and put them on top.)
(E) Oatmeal with cinnamon and THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder with a teaspoon of butter on top
(S) Sloppy joe sandwich in half a Joseph’s pita, celery and cucumbers in Ranch (I also had a Velvety Cappuccino…see the picture below)
You can find this sloppy joe recipe on page 113 of my cookbook, Necessary Food. My mom has been making it a lot lately! She doesn’t like as much vinegar as I do, so she only uses 1 tsp. instead of the 1-2 T. I use.
The Velvety Cappuccino above is a new recipe that I’ll be posting Friday! On its own, it’s a Deep S for Trim Healthy Mamas.
(S) Mommy’s Meatloaf, celery, salad with feta and Ranch + sriracha
(S Helper) Roast beef, salad with feta and Ranch, roasted carrot and onion (since these two veggies are higher in carbs than non-starchies, they probably turned my THM:S meal into an S Helper)
(S) Sloppy joe sandwich on half a Joseph’s pita, celery
You can find this sloppy joe recipe on page 113 of my cookbook, Necessary Food.
(S) Toasted Coconut Greek yogurt with low-carb granola
I’ll have a post with all kinds of Greek yogurt flavoring ideas coming your way on the 23rd! I’m going to be working on a low-carb granola recipe for a yogurt parfait idea post the week after that, so stay tuned!
(S) Greek yogurt with berry sauce and low-carb granola
(S) Orange Greek yogurt with cutie sections
(S) Chunky Monkey Greek Yogurt (stay tuned!)
(E) Um….a very odd bean soup? My sister had some black beans in the fridge, so I mixed them with some water, a squirt of ketchup, a squirt of horseradish, and some spices and heated them up for a midnight snack. Not bad, not bad at all!
(S) Mocha Cheesecake Bars from page 357 of my cookbook, Necessary Food
