The beauty of searching the web for recipes is that you'll find zillions that might meet your life style, diet and tastes. My search for a low carb pulled chicken broccoli casserole yielded this recipe from the 'Joy Filled Eats' website. Since I did not create this recipe, I like to give credit where credit is due. I tweaked the recipe a skosh and the results were scrumptious!

Part of the recipe title had the following initials "THM S". What the heck is THM S you ask? I learned it stands for 'Trim Healthy Mama' and the 'S' is for Satisfying - Low in Carbs - Protein & Fats. Until now I'd never heard of The Trim Healthy Mama Lifestyle but it claims to be a sound, effective and delicious way to eat for health and weight loss. Either way, this was an easy and wonderful tasting recipe.

Now it's no secret that I'm far from being a 'Trim Healthy Mama' but if I continue to eat these kinds of delicious low carb meals I should become more healthy and with some added exercise someday I could be more trim ... Course watching my portion sizes really needs to be a top priority.
