French Toast In A Mug | THM: E

For years, I was an “S” girl, but pregnancy always reminds me how much I need those healthy carbs for energy and to grow a baby! This Trim Healthy Mama-friendly French Toast In A Mug proves that healthy carbs can be just as satisfying to the palate as a rich, fat-based S meal.

You’ll not feel a wee bit deprived when you indulge in this protein-rich, quick to make, single serve breakfast or snack.

Made without any special ingredients, you can enjoy this French Toast In A Mug just as it is, doused in sugar-free maple syrup, and/or with a pile of fresh fruit!

You can even sprinkle a few blueberries (chopped apple is also delicious!) throughout the assembly of this French Toast In A Mug for an even sweeter burst of flavor after its finished cooking!

My favorite brand of sprouted bread is Silver Hills, but you could also use two slices of Ezekiel Bread, Gwen’s Easy Bread, or a true whole grain sourdough instead.

You can change the flavor of this French Toast In A Mug by adding more or less cinnamon (or other favorite spices), and experiment with swapping out the vanilla extract for one of the new Trim Healthy Mama Natural Burst flavors like maple, caramel, or pecan!

Carrot Cake Oatmeal | THM: E, GF, DF

As you may have guessed by now, I’m a big fan of oatmeal and this Trim Healthy Mama-friendly Carrot Cake Oatmeal is among my new favorite flavors for Fall!

I find E meals really do get me energized, so I usually start my day with either a bowl of oatmeal (I’ve included my favorite Trim Healthy Mama oatmeal recipes at the end of this post) or a Berry Banana Baobab Smoothie (I had of these almost every day this Summer!).

If I feel like I’m in a mid-afternoon slump or just need a pick-me-up, I’ve also been known to enjoy a bowl of this Carrot Cake Oatmeal for a snack or even supper! It’s so simple and quick to make, and it combines all the wonderful elements of carrot cake into a delicious warm bowl. I love it!

I love that this recipe is free of gluten, sugar, and dairy. I’ve really been trying to cut back on dairy lately, because as I mentioned in my Pumpkin Spice Latte post, it has been causing me a lot of inflammation and acne this pregnancy. Even though there’s no dairy in this Carrot Cake Oatmeal, it’s creamy and satisfying. Old fashioned rolled oats cooked in unsweetened nut milk and mixed with collagen took care of that need for me.

As usual, you don’t need any special ingredients to make this Carrot Cake Oatmeal:

Personally, I don’t even like raisins, so I normally leave them out of this recipe (dried fruit in larger amounts isn’t recommend in the Trim Healthy Mama plan either, because it’s such a concentrated form of natural sugars). However, Pearl, the co-author of Trim Healthy Mama, uses a few on her Sweat Pants Oatmeal, and I thought they looked kind of photogenic, so that’s why you see them in the recipe and pictures here. Ha!

The sprinkling of walnut bits is the only added fat here. You can leave them off, or increase the amount to more than a teaspoon if you want a Crossover. Alternatively, you might like to choose a teaspoon of butter or coconut oil instead of walnut pieces as your allotted fat in an E meal.

Own it and enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal | THM: E

There’s nothing more wonderful than waking up on a cool Fall morning to a bowl of warm Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal that has been slow-cooked overnight!

I was surprised that our kids loved this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal as much as I did! Our 2, 3, and 5 year old asked for seconds and the lucky one who called dibs on the leftovers even ate a bowl, cold, later on for her snack!

Nature’s Hollow Sugar-free Maple Syrup

I like this oatmeal without any extra sweetener, but if you prefer (as my kids do!), you can pour on some sugar-free syrup before serving. For a kid-friendly Crossover, you can also sprinkle on a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts too!

I’m a huge fan of pumpkin anything, as you may have noticed. (Who else starts eating pumpkin in August?! I need some moral support here….)

I usually make my own pumpkin spice mixture, but I found this little tin of premixed pumpkin spice from Club House and love it! It’s a bit more expensive than making your own, but the flavor is spot on and handy to have when you’re pressed for time.

One of my favorite things about this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal recipe is that in addition to being a hearty Trim Healthy Mama E breakfast, it’s also gluten free (be sure to use gluten-free steel cut oats), dairy-free, and extremely frugal!

A cup of steel cut oats expands enough to feed 6 people!

Cinnamon Protein Pancakes | THM: E

Did you know you can make fluffy pancakes with collagen?! I discovered this somewhat by accident when experimenting with this Cinnamon Protein Pancake recipe and I love how they turned out!

E meals often get a bad rap because some people don’t think they keep you feeling full for very long. Admittedly, it’s trickier to find a variety of lean protein sources to keep you satisfied in an E meal than in an S meal where both lean and fatty protein sources can be used without crossing fuels. But, if you can get a proper balance of lean protein and healthy carbs without the use of fat, E meals are life changingespecially if you’re a Mom, pregnant, and otherwise feeling run down and tired! E meals give you energy!

To be sure I felt full, I put 3 of these fluffy pancakes on my plate after I made them, topped them with a wonderful blueberry compote (recipe below), and a little low-fat whipped cream. Wouldn’t you know it, I could only eat one, and my hubby ran into the same problem!

There’s so much protein in these Cinnamon Protein Pancakes from the collagen, egg whites, and fat free Greek yogurt, that we were stuffed after one pancake! You should be able to get 5-6 pancakes out of this recipe, so you’ll easily be able to serve 3-4 people….even 5, if you find them as filling as we did!

Alternatively, you can freezer these Cinnamon Protein Pancakes and warm them up in a toaster oven or microwave as needed! A great prep ahead E breakfast!

We love these Cinnamon Protein Pancakes with a fruit compote. I’ve included the recipe for a blueberry compote here, but you could use almost any fruit, or a mix of them, fresh or frozen, since this is an E meal anyway! Berries, peaches, pears, apples…anything goes.

Field Berry Oatmeal | THM: E

As a kid, I loved Quaker packets of instant oatmeal for breakfast. This Field Berry Oatmeal is the latest of my favorite packet flavors to be converted into a Trim Healthy Mama compatible recipe (see the end of this post for a list of them all!); it’s full of healthy carbs and boasts a good bit of lean protein for sustainability. You’re not going to feel hungry too soon after enjoying this E for breakfast!

We’ve been picking wild black raspberries in abundance for the last few weeks, so they were my first choice to use in this recipe, but you could use any berry. I think blueberries would be especially amazing since heating them up enhances their sweetness!

You don’t need any special ingredients to make this frugal bowl of Field Berry Oatmeal. I’ve listed a tablespoon of collagen for extra protein, but you can leave it out and stir in some 0% fat Greek yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese instead, if you prefer.

If you leave off the tablespoon of half & half (only 1.5 grams of fat, so it easily fits within the guidelines for an E meal), and use gluten-free oats, this breakfast is also gluten-free and dairy-free!

A high-protein, low-fat, Trim Healthy Mama-friendly alternative to instant packets of Field Berry Oatmeal! It's like having dessert for breakfast. A THM E.

Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 1-2 tbsp xylitol (OR 1/2-1 Tbsp Gentle Sweet)
  • 3/4 cup berries (I used wild blackberries, but any kind will do)
  • 1 Tbsp collagen*
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of mineral salt
  • 1 Tbsp half & half
  • fresh berries for garnish

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients except half & half and garnishing berries in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 2 minutes. Pour into a bowl. Pour half & half and fresh berries on top. Enjoy immediately.

Notes

You can use any plan-approved sweetener in this recipe to taste.

Fresh or frozen berries may be used in any amount since this is an E breakfast.

*Collagen is optional, but gives this breakfast a great boost of protein. You may wish to add 0% fat Greek yogurt or low fat cottage cheese instead.

Berry Banana Baobab Smoothie | THM: E

This Berry Banana Baobab Smoothie has been a saving grace this pregnancy!

One of the suggestions my midwife gave me for combating morning sickness (er, all day sickness!) was to increase my Vitamin B6 intake. Until then, I hadn’t purchased or used any baobab powder, simply because it wasn’t something I could find locally.

At least, I didn’t think I could find it locally until I discovered it accidentally at S & H Health Foods (that’s for you, Canadians)! Baobab is very high in both Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C – the vitamin that helps you absorb iron properly – something else I had very low levels of.

Baobab Boost Powder – $13.99

Baobab is also extremely high in fiber and has a pleasant, slightly citrus flavor. You only need a very small amount to reap its benefits, so adding just a teaspoon or two a day to your diet has measurable benefits.

S meals were guaranteed to make me sick earlier in this pregnancy, so I first experimented with baobab by adding it to E smoothies. This Berry Banana Baobab Smoothie is my favorite combination. It’s full of nutrients, fruity and refreshing.

When my bananas are nearly brown (but not mushy), I peel and cut them in half, and freeze the chunks. Freezing them at their peak level of sweetness does two things:

  • it eliminates the need for a sweetener
  • keeps your smoothie cold without needing to add ice

The goal of Northern Nester is to serve up Trim Healthy Mama-friendly recipes that are free from special ingredients, so in some ways, this one is kind of out of place here. I consider baobab to be a “special ingredient” since its not readily available everywhere, but you can leave it out, too. A Berry Banana Smoothie is equally delicious and a great way to enjoy healthy carbs!

  • 1 tbsp collagen
  • 1-2 tsp baobab powder
  • optional: on-plan sweetener to taste

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.

 

Peaches And Cream Oatmeal | THM: E

Our two youngest kids adore the instant packets of Peaches And Cream Oatmeal, but they’re about as nutritionally void as they are convenient. With almost no protein to act as a buffer, those highly refined carbohydrates hit the bloodstream very quickly and don’t keep them feeling full for very long.

This Trim Healthy Mama-friendly version of Peaches And Cream Oatmeal is much easier on the blood sugar and very filling even though it contains hardly any fat.

Sustenance comes from the protein in:

Coconut Macaroon Cereal | THM: S

Sometimes a girl just needs a bowl of cereal.

And cereal, like most things, is easy enough to adapt to fit the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle! (What’s not to love about this plan?!)

My latest favorite?

…this Coconut Macaroon Cereal that literally tastes like a coconut macaroon cookie! It’s perfectly sweet and keeps its bite when served in a bowl of cashew milk or stirred into a generous helping of Greek yogurt and berries (my favorite way to enjoy it!).

You don’t need any special ingredients to make it either:

My hubby and kids all agree: it tastes like a crumbled up coconut macaroon cookie!

Served with unsweetened coconut, cashew, or almond milk, this cereal is a wonderful gluten-free, dairy-free breakfast or snack (or even dinner, when you’re having one of those days!).

The combination of coconut meat, crushed almond pieces, and egg whites together is a great source of protein, but the real coconut macaroon cookie flavor comes from the addition of sweetener, salt,  and two very important, pure extracts:

Pure Vanilla Extract

Pure Almond Extract

You could leave the seemingly insignificant bit of almond extract out of the recipe, but I don’t recommend it. That tiny amount yields a world of wonderful flavor to this cereal!

This cereal is best stored in the fridge in an air-tight container. I keep mine in a Mason jar.

  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Combine all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread coconut mixture evenly on top. Bake at 400 F for 5-7 minutes, stirring once, half way through. Cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.

Notes

It is VERY IMPORTANT to watch your cereal closely while it bakes! 30 seconds too long in the oven can burn your batch! Remove from the oven when it begins to turn golden.

Overnight PB & J Oatmeal | THM: E

Last week, I shared my favorite warm oatmeal recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Oatmeal. Today, I’m sharing my favorite cold oatmeal recipe: Overnight PB & J Oatmeal. (If you’re not a fan of eating oatmeal cold, no worries: you can always heat up a bowl of this overnight PB & J Oatmeal in the microwave for a minute!)

Personally, I love this recipe cold; it tastes like dessert!

This is definitely the fastest E breakfast I have ever had. Put together the night before, there’s nothing to prepare when you wake up. Stir in a handful of raspberries and breakfast is served!

Overnight PB & J is also the most filling E breakfast I’ve eaten! I can barely finish a bowl. Thanks to a night of soaking in defatted peanut flour, 0% Greek yogurt, and cashew milk, this oatmeal will keep you feeling full until your next meal.

Trim Healthy Mama’s Defatted Peanut Flour

You don’t need any special ingredients to make this breakfast. In fact, you probably have everything on hand already:

Stirring in a handful of frozen berries is a super easy way to make this oatmeal taste like a mouthful of PB & J, one of my favorite flavor combinations.

(If you’re a PB & J fan, you will probably love these PB & J muffins, too!)

Overnight PB & J Oatmeal is a Trim Healthy Mama-friendly E meal because it contains no real fat source, but has healthy amount of good carbs and lean protein.
