BLT Salad with Tangy Mayo Dressing - Dairy-free, Low-carb, THM-S

One of my favorite sandwiches of all time is a BLT, especially when there are fresh tomatoes from the garden. This summer I’ve been enjoying a yummy gluten-free version of this classic sandwich with my favorite gluten-free bread.

I also enjoy the taste of a BLT in this lighter version of a BLT in salad form with a tangy mayo dressing.

Trim Healthy Mamas this salad is an S.

Spicy Bacon Chicken Bake

I served this yummy casserole on lightly salted baked spaghetti squash. If you’ve never made spaghetti squash, don’t wait any longer. You need to do it. It’s such a fun veggie.

My favorite way to bake spaghetti squash is to pierce it 4-5 times and bake it whole in a 350° oven for 1 to 1 ½ hours. Then let it cool for at least ½ hour. After it is cool to touch, slice it in half and remove the seeds. Then take a fork and remove the spaghetti strings. It takes a little while to bake and cool, but it’s so easy to make. You can also freeze the cooked spaghetti squash to have it ready to go for when you don’t have the extra time to bake.

**Update** See my post on How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash for an even easier way to make spaghetti squash!

I added sheep cheese to this recipe, but if you need to keep it completely dairy free, feel free to leave it out. You can add an additional tablespoon of nutritional yeast to boost the cheesy flavor.

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an S meal.

Sweet Mustard Bacon Chicken Strips - MamaShire - THM

This sweet-mustard-bacon-chicken combo makes for a fun meal or appetizer. Whenever I serve these strips there seems to be an extra level of excitement around the table. With bacon covered in a sweet and spicy sauce, you just can’t go wrong.

Tips for Trim Healthy Mamas:

  • I use xylitol or my homemade sweetener blend to make the sweet mustard, but feel free to use your choice of on plan sweetener.
  • The turkey bacon I used had only 5 grams of fat in two slices, so 4 of these chicken strips would be an FP and anything more than that would be an S.
