Italian Meatball Sheet-pan Dinner THMS, DF, SF

Need a quick easy meal? This one is a favorite of ours and so easy to make. Best of all, each person can pick and choose what they want to eat. I always make two trays for our family. The first pan I will fill with low-carb non starchy vegetables (THM S) and the second pan gets a mixture of different kinds of potatoes (THM XO). My family loves these type of meals. It is a win for mom because they are so simple to prepare and doesn’t leave you with a huge pile of dishes to wash!!

Sugar-free Spice Mixes

If you’re trying to eat healthier I’m sure you’ve noticed that there is added sugar in almost everything. It can be very frustrating, especially when you’re first starting out, to try and find things you can eat that won’t spike your blood sugar. I remember when I started eating the Trim Healthy Mama way how frustrating it was to find even a taco seasoning packet that didn’t have sugar in it.

Why did we have to have all these preservatives and additives in the taco seasoning? I was not happy feeding that to my family. Yes, the packets are super convenient but I knew there had to be a way to replace the packets. I was right, and it was SUPER easy. Why hadn’t I thought of making my own earlier?

It wasn’t just the taco seasoning either. I started checking chili packets, rubs for meat, creole mixes and they ALL had added sugar. YUCK!
