Healthy recipes and a focus on slimming down without losing awesome recipes and taste. And it's HUGE with over 350 recipes. But, for me, that's where the good bits ended. This is the first time I'm giving a cookbook a 1 star rating. There ended up being very little about this cookbook that worked for me. It was a huge disappointment especially after seeing hundreds of 5 star reviews it has received. From expensive and difficult to find ingredients to weird inclusions and lack of veggie friendliness it was a bust. It made me think of an ex friend who would fall into the category of hippy dippy earth mama who would say things and you'd just have that look on your face like say what now? This would probably be a great cookbook for her. The Recipes/Ingredients The cookbook is a huge promo push for the authors. They have their own product line of specially blended flours, sweet ingredients, noodles and some things I don't even know what to call. All of which you'd need to order online and are needed for a huge portion of the recipes. They do say you can make your own blends or buy alternate ingredients but they strongly point out how bad those choices are compared to their brand. (expensive too!) There were a number of ingredients I had never heard of. I called my mother who is a baker and she'd never heard of them. Though they claim they're easy to find at all Walmart/Targets. Hrms. I doubt. Some of the items... pressed peanut flour, integral collagen, mineral salt, whole husk psyllium flakes, mct oil, ghee. The cookbook as a whole is very unfriendly towards vegetarianism. Even recipes that were veggie-ish or desserts included gelatin which...not something a vegetarian can have. There were also just some weird ingredients. I was excited about the large dessert section and their pro-dessert attitude until I looked at the recipes that included ingredients like okra, radish, black beans, spinach and gelatin. Em. No. No thanks at all. Recipes also had very 'cutsie' names that weren't helpful in knowing what they were and for the most part the photos were of the obvious dishes while the ones that left me scratching my head were photo-less. Ex--Breggy Fry Up, Tangy Tato Soup, Cream of Sweet Stuff Soup, Papster Thighs, etc The Photographs The photographs were nice enough though not numerous. Maybe 1 in 3 recipes had photos. Things that made it special N/A Recipes marked to try There are a TON of recipes. Over 350 of them. How many did I mark down to try? 5. Yep. Five. Of the 5 recipes I marked to try 3 would have to be altered to be veggie friendly.

    As a homeschool mom who needs to get a little healthier and lose some weight while I'm at it, I was so excited to review this cookbook. I was much more disappointed once I got into it. While there are great looking recipes, so very many call for their specialty ingredients. While there is a section in the front of substitutions, some clearly state that you're not going to get as good a result without using their special blend/ingredient. I can't afford pricey specialty items for everyday dishes, As a homeschool mom who needs to get a little healthier and lose some weight while I'm at it, I was so excited to review this cookbook.

    Love this book,! so many great recipes, and an excellent way to eat healthy. If you are struggling with weight, eating healthy, and want to feel better, have more energy, and begin changing old habits; then this is the book you should be reading. This plan is so sustainable and it doesn't leave out food groups. It is the real thing. Not a diet, but a change in eating habits.

    More recipes recommended by friends, mostly the crock pot and freezer meals. I found some very interesting recipes to try and can't wait to see if my family enjoys them. Again I'm not really interested in the diet plan that's in this book and their first, just the recipes.

    This cookbook is a companion to the Trim Healthy Mama plan book. It is very readable and contains plenty of recipes to get you going on the plan and teach you how to use some of the foods they recommend, which can be a bit odd (collagen peptides, anyone?). Honestly, my blood work has become incredibly healthy since i started this diet, and you don’t really need to use the odd stuff.

    For cookbooks I prefer lots of pictures and this has that. There is a brief explanation section in the front, but you should read their book(s) about their plan to get the most out of this.

It's nearly impossible to separate this from their plan so I'm attaching my review on their plan book below: I thought this was different, but it's just a new name on the old low carb plan. I had hoped for balance, but what I'm seeing is artificial sweeteners and products most people don't have and have to work hard and spend a lot of money for (like xanthan gum, sunflower lecithin, agar powder, gluccie, and their special mixes). There has been so many complaints about strange ingredients that there are some recipes listed that are NSI (no special ingredients). They want you to learn and use new lingo - which isn't new to them either. I liked a lot of their... chatty and funny narrative, but know they can be a little ... judgmental too. I remember one place where they talked about food we shouldn't eat and they referenced the old testament rules and mentioned (my summary - not a quote) that they believed God knew what He was talking about but we could decide for ourselves. I felt like eating those foods would be like challenging God - which totally ignores the passage where we're told all the food is for us and we're not bound by those rules anymore. I joined one of the support groups on Facebook and that's when I saw how people were gagging on the "sips, struggling with eliminating enough carbs and sugar, and trying to help one another find ingredients and modify recipes. These groups are very active though and members share recipes and encourage one another. That may be the best part of this plan.

    I may or may not have gotten this book and looked through it (page by page) the same day in which I got it. As soon as I opened the book, I smiled. There are not many times that I call a book "beautiful" but I just loved flipping through the pages of the THM Cookbook and looking at the recipes! It was very well done! The THM Cookbook greatly compliments the THM Plan. I suppose it can be used without knowing the THM plan, but it definitely makes way more sense knowing THM.

And, I imagine that reading this will expand your interest in the THM Plan if you haven't gotten that book. The THM Cookbook starts off with a crash course to the THM lifestyle and the foods that help it roll. Most recipes have tips included in there. It seems very easy to follow with "S, E, and FP" symbols on each recipe--and on the index for each section. You can find the meal type you want at a glance. Plus, allergen friendly tweaks mentioned. I've not had time to make any of the recipes yet (obviously), but I'm looking forward to trying many of them--including the Chocolate Waffles with Strawberries. *I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review*

    Having been familiar with the "Trim Healthy Mama" diet through friends, and whose family often receives the Above Rubies magazine, this book interested me. I'm not always big on "healthy" food, but these dishes look good.

Some of the ingredients are things that might be a little obscure, though, and might have you heading to a health food store. However, there's a good variety of recipes types (including desserts, of course!) so it's good even for people who, like me, are neither mamas nor particularly healthy. I admit I am a little worried about the binding; my copy has barely been used and I can already see the wear on the spine. For a book with so many recipes, I have a feeling it's going to look pretty torn up after just a short while. I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

The shakes and coffee drinks alone are enough to make this book a worthwhile buy in my opinion.

    The recipes are great - I would have never tried Okra but it works in the recipes and my older son who normally refuses all things veggie, ate it up without even knowing. This cookbook is geared towards those participating in the 'Trim Healthy Mama' eating plan. There are speciality blends that can be purchased to follow the recipe to a T - again it all goes to if you're doing the THM plan. I am so it works for us.

I had head about THM from many of my friends, many of whom swear by it. So when I saw this cookbook for review I knew that I had to give it a shot! After reading through this book I became aware that the plan is not included in this book but in a second one, so this review is based off of just reading this specific book and trying some of the recipes. One of the things that I really liked was how this book talked alot about getting more nutrients into one's diet, and cutting out things like white flour and sugar, but it's OK to cheat a little too. I felt like the idea was to promote a healthier more nutrient filled diet, the food is meant to be satisfying, as in filling, and also great for the tastebuds. What I really liked about this book was how it taught me how to flavor things, I've always wanted to learn to use and combine spices, but I've never quite mastered it, but following the directions of this book led to great flavorful meals. I noticed in the week that I ate from the cookbook that I felt more energized and less weighed down by gross greasy foods. And on the day that I went out with a friend for icecream, that I could clearly feel the difference in my body, and how I felt afterwards--more sluggish and my stomach felt "heavier." I felt like I had become more sensitive and could more easily feel the different in how I felt after eating. This was a great recipes book because it shows that you don't have to sacrifice flavor at all! Everything that I tried was, in fact, actually more flavorful than what I normally would eat. I was also glad that I didn't have to cut out dairy, and that some of their recipes include actual real cheese--knowing that cheese and dairy products weren't completely forbidden made me more comfortable with the recipes. The recipes that we tried were: Sweet Potato Oat Soup, Taco Time, and Cry-No More Brownies. All of them turned out great, and are recipes that I will definitely repeat. Overall, a nice cookbook with great nutritious and healthy recipes, bursting with flavor and at times interesting ingredients. I look forward to trying more recipes in the future--though I would warn people that most of the recipes include ingredients that are not always on hand in most homes, so I had to run to the store before I could try some of them. I am very interested in looking into the actual plan now, to see if it is doable. This book is a great resource for eating healthier, and while I'm not doing the plan right now, I really enjoyed the recipes, and look forward to trying more in the future :) Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog.

These two lovely ladies created a website filled with inspiration, health, and wellness recipes for lovely mamas (and anyone interested in eating this way). I have to say, before getting this book, I had never heard of them. Maybe vaguely. And, when I got the book, my intention was to give it to my sister who is trying to lose weight. But, now, I'm hooked. I had no idea this book was filled with beautiful lifestyle examples - things of which I have been an avid follower for years: protein-filled, blood-sugar regulating meals with plenty of healthy carbs and fats. Many of the recipes are grain-free (they tend to favor coconut flour, almond flour, and ground flaxseed) and they are big promoters of natural sugar-free options like erythritol and stevia, as well as aluminum-free baking powder and high-content mineral salts like Himalayan sea salt. Grass-fed gelatin makes an appearance, as does coconut oil and MCT oil. And veggies - lots and lots of veggies. Their recipes and lifestyle is all about packing the most punch with the greatest amount of flavor, all while trimming down. Pretty fascinating read. A lot of the recipes have THM (Trim Healthy Mama...for the newbies) manufactured suggestions such as baking blends, sweeteners, integral collagen, and other goodies that are easily sold on their website (I'm always a little leery about marketing plans), but they are great about giving you direction about how to find it elsewhere, even at a local store, or make it yourself. In this case, the marketed product manufacturing is about making the plan easy to follow, not just making the authors money (although, I am sure it does that in great abundance). They have quite a few funny little measurements like a doonk (1/32 of a teaspoon) and lots of acronyms like NSI (No Special Ingredients). But, with a plethora of all sorts of delicious-looking recipes, who cares about some of the nuisances. There are also some fun nuggets on select recipes called "Serene Chats" and "Pearl Chats" - informative messages from the authors about the recipes, life, and sometimes, hilarity. I love that they include single serving recipes, as well as family-size - enough to accommodate everyone. With healthy recipes (tried and they are true!) like Frosted Cinnamon Muffin - delish! - and Bring on da Buttah Pancakes, this book has endless recipes. I must say, I tried both of these and felt great afterwards, not heavy, depleted, or tired. Instead, I was satiated and energized. Good stuff. And lots more to try like: Avo Bacon Noodle Toss, Egg Roll in a Bowl, Ridiculous Meatballs and Spaghetti, Waffleized Brekky Sandwich, Chocolate Waffles with Strawberries, Mini White Cake with Butter Cream Frosting, Wigglemallow Pies, Zapple Crumble, and more. My sister probably won't get this book. At least, not this particular one. Thank goodness for bookstores and online ordering. Here's to a healthy, new you! Thanks, Trim Mamas! *This book was given to me by Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. I loved it. www.divine-by-nature.blogspot.com

My Review: I'm so glad that the authors decided on writing a book solely dedicated to all the great recipes on this plan. I followed this plan for awhile when it first was released especially after finding out that I have a gluten intolerance. Their plan helped me get of the sugar and white flour along with the wheat a lot faster than it would of normally taken. I am really attracted to the sweet treats in the book more than anything thing else because this is where I have the most difficulty. The girls didn't leave our family members out of the equation either. Their are some family sized recipes in the book, as well. Trim and Healthy Mama also has a product line now so you need to check that out if you plan on using the book to make some of these fantastic recipes. There is a special introduction in the beginning of the book that explains a little bit of the plan and how to use the cookbook. There is also a special way to tell which recipes can be done with just ingredients from your local grocery store. I was very happy to see the color rich photography accompanying the recipes. The recipes look fantastic! I can't wait to try them! **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.

At the beginning of the book it talks about the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle and talks about the different tags for the recipes. Like there is FP for fuel pull, S for satisfying, E for energizing, etc. It also tells you the tools and such that you will need in your kitchen. This book is all about lifestyle, not just a diet. Some recipes that stand out to me: -Just Like Campbell’s Tomato Soup -Jalapeno Onion Burgers -Banana Bread Pudding -Drive Thru Sue Cheesy Crackers One thing that really bothers me about most of the recipes is that they require Trim Healthy Mama products. These products have to be ordered online and they are a tad on the pricey side. See here. I can appreciate the healthy alternatives needed for the recipes but I don’t want to have to get on a website to order those things. What I will say is at the bottom of most of these recipes it will tell you substitutes so you can make it shopping from your regular grocery store. It is just most often, you will be adding calories/changing the nutrition of them. There are also ingredients that I just don’t keep on hand or use for anything else. They give you a list of things that you may not have on hand that they suggest having for the recipes though, so at least you know in advance. **I received this book from Blogging for Books but all opinions are honest and of my own. **

This book would be good for anyone on an alternative diet plan as many of the recipes meet some of the strict food guidelines that are commonly recommended today. I read one complaint that the book was filled with "mixes" and "fake sugars". Stevia is highly recommended, but in the beginning, all the ingredients are broken down, explained and alternatives are given. I don't use stevia, but found that it would be simple to use most of the recipes with my own alternatives. If you visit their FB groups or websites, there are also alternative recipes for making your own baking blends etc. It is not hard to figure out. But make sure you read the entire first part of the book. If you are not used to eating low sugar foods, some of the desserts will not taste very good to you. However, if you are, they are fairly good. I have had several of the recipes and was pleased with how they tasted. Roasted radishes are really good, they taste like a cross between a potato and a Brussel sprout when roasted. Mostly, this book gives you great alternative recipes for alternative diets, simplified. It is not for everyone, but for those that need it, this is a great resource. The full color pictures and the authors sense of humor make it a fun read as well.

    This is a really difficult cookbook for me to review, if I'm honest. There was much in this one that just didn't appeal to me but that may be that I'm new to their methodology and it felt much too intense to work for me and our family.

There was much in this one that just didn't appeal to me but that may be that I'm new to their methodology and it felt much too intense to work for me and our family. There were a number of ingredients that were new to me ... and 'seem' odd. Which is probably saying more about me than about the cookbook. But, it felt very healthy, froo froo - almost exclusively for something interested in the whole 'extreme' healthy eating rather than the typical family would eat. Much of the things in this cookbook are just too extreme for me to intro to my husband and kids. It's a pretty book - but there weren't photos for every recipe which is definitely a pet peeve for me - and it is quite well designed. I loved the sheer quantity of recipes - there are ton of recipes here. Unfortunately, most of them won't work for us. But, if this sort of stuff is of interest to you, you have a treasure trove of recipes and information here! I wish I'd enjoyed this one more. I think it's great for anyone who is really into their brand and wants to dive deeply into their program/method. Just do a little research before you purchase in order to be sure it's a good fit for you! I received this cookbook for free for an honest review via Blogging for Books.

    I recently reviewed the Trim Healthy Mama Plan and now have the chance to review the cookbook. While I do have the 600+ page original book I do like how the separate books make this plan easier to research and follow. What I especially enjoy about this updated cookbook is that the pages are glossy (perfect for in the kitchen!) and there are pictures, which I always love in a cookbook. Some new tried and true recipes from those on the plan have also been added to the book.

While I appreciate that a lot of the recipes are thrifty the thing I dislike, and noticed years ago when I first started the plan, is some of the special foods that are included in the recipes are expensive and/or hard to find. Items like mct oil, ghee, pressed peanut flour, etc. While these items can be substituted with other items, they won't be so "on plan" then. The authors actually have a baking line for sale now and I feel they press these items a little too much, when the previous cookbook was more about finding alternative and cheaper products. I do look forward to trying more of the recipes now that I can see photos of the food - it makes the recipes seem more appetizing so that is a good thing! :) This book was given to me by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This book is a God send for me!!! I think of these two wonderful women as my Food Angels! I've already started integrating coconut oil into my life, add a teaspoon of bee pollen top my coffee every morning & bought some apple fiber, beet root & Indian gooseberry powder, but never knew how to implement these into my diet. I'm getting some ideas now though! :) I've only been going for 3 weeks & have lost 6 lbs, my energy was better just after a week & I've noticed other subtle differences.

I'm 43 years old & haven't had this much energy since I was a young teen. I am putting use to all the supplements since I am already a firm believer in the powers of coconut! I haven't even scratched the surface with the recipes & am expecting to feel even better once I make more food. I'm very excited about my new eating habits & losing so much weight so fast is certainly giving me the motivation to keep going. I've been comparing about this "food" this government allows us to be fed for years now. Now I have the knowledge to back it up (from reading the THM plan) & a way around it! Thanks so much my Food Angels & God Bless you for sharing this knowledge with us!

    If you have the plan book, this cookbook is a must. I know it is possible to follow their plan without the cookbook, but it certainly wouldn't be easy. The main dishes are huge and will serve a large family. I have tried many recipes and have yet to find one that my family didn't really care for. The lazy lasagna, egg roll in a bowl, balsamic chicken, and wicked white chili were all huge hits. The chocolate zucchini cake and cry no more brownies are also huge hits.

The recipes in the book do call for some special ingredients. They encourage you to buy theirs, but I have not done that. I've tried to only make recipes with ingredients I can find locally--I use Pyure sweetener from Wal-Mart instead of the THM sweetener. I make my own "baking mix" using almond flour/golden flax meal/coconut flour. I did buy other special ingredients such as protein powder and collagen (either from Amazon or from local stores) but after a couple of months I'm not using them as much as just trying to make regular meals in a THM way.
