18 Delicious Recipe Ideas

When I started my Trim Healthy Mama (low carb, no sugar, etc.) journey in August, it was a struggle for me to come up with meal ideas for the whole family.  I like to keep things simple and familiar without having to buy "weird" ingredients.  I have shared what I ate the first eight days of my journey and I have shared a few quick lunch ideas, but today I am sharing some of my favorite dinner ideas from other websites/blogs that are low carb or Trim Healthy Mama friendly, but also a crowd pleaser in my home.  (All of the pictures are from the sites that I linked, not my own.)

1.  Spaghetti Pie from Gwen's Nest
