Trim Healthy Mama | A Review and Giveaway!

Unlike other diet and nutrition books, Trim Healthy Mama simplifies the why behind the weight and offers recipes that are extremely doable and tasty! Plus, since both authors are homeschooling mothers of large families (think 5 children or more), they are conscious of tight-budgets, picky eaters, and time restraints.

Hi Renee!

My name is Stacy and I blog over at Stacy Makes Cents. I’ve paired together with Gwen from Gwen’s Nest to start a new Trim Healthy Mama weekly-link up called Trim Healthy Tuesday!
It was brought to our attention that you are a Trim Healthy Mama and we wanted to reach out to you and ask for help! We would love it if you would link up with us each week, sharing your trim, healthy lifestyle.
Each week we’d love for you to link up a recipe, kitchen tip, how-to, menu, and/or exercise post that can include before and after photos (modest photos only, please). We will accept up to three posts from your blog each week! And we ask that each week they not be repeats from a previous week’s link up.
All you have to do is share this information on your website and then come over to one of our blogs on Tuesday to link-up! Links posted on one blog will show on both for maximum exposure for your blog. We ask that you use your own photos, but a Trim Healthy Tuesday button will be provided.
Each week Gwen and I will choose three of our favorite posts from the prior week and we will display them on our blog and post them on Facebook/Twitter during the week. Feel free to use the featured button on your blog in that same post. We will also display the link that received the most clicks.
Gwen and I will also be providing our own tips and recipes on Tuesday to share the Trim Healthy Mama love!
We would LOVE for you to participate in this link up! Please see below for our official guidelines. And if you have any questions, give one of us a holler. 

Guidelines for Linked Posts:
1. Accepted post topics will be: Trim Healthy Mama-related recipes, kitchen tips, weekly menus, ‘how to’ articles, or exercise tips. MODEST before and after photos may be attached to any of the above. Please do not link personal progress reports or non-THM recipes.
2. You may post links from YOUR blog to recipes that are Trim Healthy Mama friendly. They can be S (satisfying), E (energizing), FP (Fuel Pull), or Crossovers. Please note which of these categories your recipe falls under. Nutrition information for your recipe is helpful, but not mandatory.
3. Please respect the copyright of the book, and do not post recipes from the Trim Healthy Mama book on your blog or in this link up. You MAY post recipes that you’ve changed to make your own, but nothing verbatim from the book.
4. Please link your post back to one of the hosting blogs above: Gwen’s Nest or Stacy Makes Cents. Your link will show up on both blogs!
5. Please post no more than 3 links each week.
6. Post new links from your blog each week – do not post the same link each week.
7. You may include recipes with “Splenda” and other similar products or foods that are considered “compromise foods”, but please note that in the recipe, and either make them optional or offer substitutions for on plan items if possible. Please do not use ingredients that are off plan…like white potatoes.
8. No giveaways or advertising-only type posts are allowed. You may post about cookbooks that you like and you may include affiliate links, but the post MUST be THM friendly. Example – posting about an eCookbook that you like is acceptable when telling how it can help with THM. Posting about a cookbook just so you can sell it is NOT acceptable.
9. Any post that does not meet the guidelines outlined above will be considered Spam and will be deleted.
