It really seems like Trim Healthy Mama (THM) has caught on – I have several friends now locally who are on the plan and by the number of blog visitors that view my how to get started post, it seems that lots of people want to find out more!
When I first got started with THM about 2 1/2 years ago, I tried many recipes that frankly, were flops. I realized that I needed a simple way to keep the recipes that were winners (and also a simple way to add notes about what tweaks I’d made). I also needed to not be printing out recipes because I have paper issues (have you seen the picture of my kitchen table here?)
So I gravitated to and have primarily used Pinterest for finding new recipes beyond those in the THM books. Pinterest is so easy to search and it’s also so easy to save links to recipes you want to try or those you’ve tried that are keepers! You can also comment on the links you pin, and that’s where I make my recipe notes.
(There’s one small caveat and downside to Pinterest, however, that I’ll tell you upfront – if the blog / website that you’ve pinned a link to goes away, then your recipe goes away. That’s happened to me twice now – two recipes from the same blog that were so good and I’m so sad I didn’t print them out. My suggestion is that if you find a recipe that you know you love and will make a lot, you may want to print the recipe.)
When my local friends get started and ask me what recipes I like and what my family likes, I always point them to my Pinterest boards. Here are some links for you as well:
These are recipes that I’ve tried and at least half my family will eat. Ha! That’s my criteria for whether I keep it or not!
Hope this helps those of you who are looking for inspiration!
