Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

Simple ingredients go together to make this easy comfort meal. Growing up this would be something that my mom or my grandmother would put together and cook in their pressure cookers. With the Instant Pot, it’s even easier and way less scary. I remember my mom telling us kids to get out of the kitchen when she was using the pressure cooker. It seemed scary to us, but maybe that was her way of getting a few minutes of quiet.

Dicing the onion and slicing the sausage will be the only work that you’ll have to do to put this meal together. You could also use diced frozen onions for an even simpler prep time. Put all the ingredients in the Instant Pot with 2 cups of chicken broth, secure the lid and set 6 minutes on the manual setting. When the time is up use the quick release method of releasing the steam.

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

  • I like Miller Chicken Sausage because it’s free of gluten, nitrites, nitrates, and comes in at just 2 grams of carbs per link. If you don’t have this brand in your area you can use any other sausage that you would like as long as it’s on plan with Trim Healthy Mama ( 2 grams of carb or less per serving)
  • I also use Herbamare seasoning, it’s a favorite of our family, but you can use your favorite seasoning salt.
  • Depending on the fat grams in the sausage this could drop into an FP meal.

Trim Healthy Mamas this meal is a THM-S.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

These tasty asparagus spears are so simple to make. I’ve made these in the oven before, but using the Air Fryer makes it even quicker and easier. There is no need to preheat the oven, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen like an oven does, and one of my favorite reasons to use the air fryer is the ease of clean-up. The inside basket and base basket are light weight and a breeze to clean.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

Lightly spritz the asparagus with avocado oil or olive oil using an oil spritzer like this Evo Oil Sprayer. I bought this set of two when I bought the air-fryer and I really like how easy they are to use. (As of today, June 26, there is a coupon for $4 off the set on Amazon when you purchase, just be sure to click the coupon to apply it to your order. )

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

You could also cut your asparagus up into smaller lengths, but I really like how dramatic they look long. Ha.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

This recipe makes it easy for me to get more vegetables in my diet. I made the green beans and sausage recipe in my Instant Pot while the asparagus was cooking in my Air Fryer and it was all so easy and the kitchen didn’t get hot at all.

Trim Healthy Mamas this Air-Fried Asparagus recipe is a THM-FP.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

Now that summer’s in full swing and the temperatures are warming up, we’ve been enjoying these frosty orange drinks almost everyday. It’s so nice to come in from working outside and be able to quickly make this drink to cool off. It tastes like an orange julius from that popular ice cream fast food chain.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

I add a scoop of collagen peptides to this drink to get some extra protein and health benefits in my diet, but if I’m planning on sharing this drink with one of my daughters, I’ll add 2 scoops to make sure we both get a good serving of collagen.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

Another thing I love about this drink is that by adding in the orange with lots of the white pith still attached it provides more than a full serving of vitamin C. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m much more likely to drink this fun drink than to peel an orange and eat it. I quarter the orange and run a paring or tomato knife just under the peel to leave as much of the white pith on as possible. When I’ve got all the other ingredients mixed up, I’ll add the orange quarters to the blender with the ice cubes. Pour into a quart jar or two pint jars. Enjoy and be refreshed!

These stainless steel straws make it easy to make your drink extra special and you won’t ever run out of those plastic straws.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

I think one of my favorite things to bake has to be muffins. Muffins are so easy to make and just plain fun to eat. And I love their look and texture. They great for breakfast or a quick snack. These would look really pretty with a special brunch as well.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

These muffins have one cup of chopped strawberries and it makes for a very moist muffin if you prefer a drier muffin you can lower the amount of strawberries to 3/4 cup.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

To sweeten these muffins you can use the Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet Blend or my homemade version of that which is a mixture of 1 cup of Now Foods non-GMO Erythritol and 1 teaspoon of Now Foods Better Stevia. Our family likes this brand of stevia the best of all the ones that we have tried. I usually buy the 1 lb. container and it lasts for several months.

Dairy-Free Vanilla Icing

Dairy-Free Vanilla Icing – a lovely, light tasting vanilla icing perfect for topping scones and cookies. Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Low-carb, THM-S.

Dairy-Free Vanilla Icing - Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Low-carb, THM-S

This light. tasty vanilla icing is in between a glaze and frosting. It can be put in a baggie and piped onto your baked goodies. Clip a tiny corner of the baggie and squeeze out the icing. You can go slowly and controlled or go fast and let it get all squiggly like I did on the scone above.

I put in just a bit of butter flavoring in this recipe, if you don’t have any it will still work, but it does add a light, buttery flavor that I think is worth adding in.

Try this icing with my Grain-Free Snickerdoodle Scones.

Strawberries and lime complement each other in a delightful way in this slushy drink. You may have had a version of this at a drive-thru made with regular sugar-filled soda, but this healthy version is full of fruit and sweetened with only stevia.

If you want to make this a full snack add in the collagen for a nice serving of protein. Trim Healthy Mama Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen are my favorites.

If you need a chocolate and peanut butter fix here you go! These muffins have veggies in them, but you won’t be able to taste it.

Yellow or zucchini squash make these muffins extra moist. I like to shred summer squash and freeze it in two cup portions to be able to use it throughout the year. If using frozen squash, just be sure to drain off any excess water before putting it in a recipe.

Almond butter can be used in place of peanut butter, if you prefer.

I use a Vita-Mix blender, which is a power-horse of a blender. If you don’t have a heavy-duty blender you may want to use a food processor instead.

Yellow Squash Snack Cake - Tastes like a yummy pound cake. Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Low-carb, THM-S

This simple to make snack cake makes me think a lot of a pound cake, but without all the sugar. The yellow squash makes this cake nice and moist and the combination of almond flour and the THM Baking Blend gives it the perfect texture. This cake is delicious even without icing. My favorite way to serve it is plain or with a berry sauce.

While summer squash is in season, I like to freeze it in 2 cup portions so that I can easily make baked goods throughout the year using squash. Most of the time we think of using zucchini in cakes, but yellow squash works just as well, especially if you’re wanting a lighter color of cake.

It’s simple to freeze summer squash.

  • Peel or leave peeling, the choice is yours. There are more nutrients in the peeling, but if you don’t want the extra yellow or green color you can peel them first.
  • Cut out seedy centers.
  • Shred. This is easiest done in a food processor. This food processor is the one that I use.
  • Freeze in 2-cup portions in freezer bags.
  • To use, thaw on counter or place in a bowl of water for a few hours thaw. Drain excess water off before using in recipe.
