Over the years I have tried many methods to loose weight and maintain a healthy weight. I was very successful counting my calories, but I wasn’t happy. I felt like such a failure if I over ate my calories at one meal and then felt like there was nothing I could eat but celery or some terrible protein shake made with water to get me through dinner. This is a recipe I created when I was counting calories, so you can see that I totaled up the nutritional values and tried to create a lean meal!
Even though I don’t count calories on trim healthy mama, I still love this recipe. I also love the freedom that I can make two peppers and eat them all, instead of restricting myself to just one pepper like I used to. I also have the freedom to add pepperoni slices or black olives or something else without worrying about adding in the additional calories.
If you primarily use low-fat cottage cheese and minimal Parmesan cheese, this is a trim healthy mama fuel pull! However most of the time I prepare it with some extra mozzarella or pepperoni and it is a S meal!
