Staying on Plan with Trim Healthy Mama
My Trim Healthy Mama journey has been one of a lot of ups and downs. It’s easy to fall off the wagon of any ‘health’ journey. But I don’t think there is any easier time than during the holidays. Oh, the smells! The absolutely delicious smells. The sugary smells, the savory smells. Ekk! Just writing it makes me want to go cram my head in the pantry and see if my husband has hoarded any savory and salty deliciousness that I can snarf down before he notices. The holidays are just around the corner and I am already anticipating some of those delightful staple dishes that smell so wonderful, but pack on unneeded pounds!
However, Trim Healthy Mama has the benefit of eating food that completely satisfies.
I’m completely serious. Unlike any other healthy lifestyle, I have never been so satisfied as with the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. All the holiday smells and temptations, although delightful, do not tempt me at all. Looking at all the sugar-laden sweets or heavy unhealthy carbs, pale in comparison to the delectable treats I know I can have that don’t raise my blood sugar to preposterous proportions.
Easy Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Dip
Last year when I walked into a work holiday party and smelled the intoxicating smells of buffalo chicken dip, I knew I had to create something that was better and healthier!
This easy low-carb buffalo chicken dip can even be used as a meal because of the hidden veggies. Who would have thought something this good would have some hidden cauliflower? But don't worry, your kids won't even notice. Maybe not even your husband (mine didn't at first!) The cauliflower rice gives this dish an added health boost, but it soaks in the flavor, so it blends into the dish effortlessly.
This is an effortless dish because you can throw all the ingredients in the crockpot and walk away from it for a few hours. Using a pan or an oven dish is an option too, and it does not take much more added time! Super simple and easy to serve a delicious meal or dip for a party.
Cauliflower Rice and Buffalo Dip
Have you found that cauliflower rice is one of the most powerful ways to turn a dish into a complete meal? I sure have. The best thing about this recipe is that it does not taste anyway like a vegetable dish. It simply tastes like Chicken Buffalo Dip. AND you get a full serving of vegetables. Frank's Red Hot sauce makes it just a bit feisty! Dip it in celery for an S meal, eat it plan for an S meal, or dip it in salty Wasa crackers for a crossover!
