It’s here! I couldn’t be more excited.
Last year I realized that as much as I’m committed to eating healthy and staying sugar free and carb smart with my meal choices (and my Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle), that I was giving myself permission to cheat over the holiday season FAR too frequently. I hate losing traction over enjoying food, since there are SO many amazing things that I have learned to make that DO fit my new way of eating.
There HAD to be a way to enjoy traditional holiday dishes in healthier ways. It became my passion to put together a collection of dishes that would make my family and friends swoon, and never suspect that they were enjoying a sugar free, gluten free, and carb smart meal.
I thought that you, like me, might also be trying to find a balance between delicious holiday foods and healthy eating. And the concept for my first cookbook, Feast, was born.
A Peek Inside
Feast contains 28 delectable holiday recipes, each with a full page color photo, detailed instructions, and handy tips. The collection this year features traditional dishes: the perfect roast turkey, cornbread dressing, macaroni and cheese, and pumpkin pie. But you’ll also find new family favorites, and classics infused with the flavors of caramel and maple.
Every recipe is tested and approved by my family, and they all work with my Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. You can see the THM meal types that go with each recipe here.
I’ve even included our favorite beverages, sauces and gravies, and a holiday activity that we do each year with the kids.Putting together the recipes and photos in the book was in itself a reward, and holding it in my hands for the first time was such a thrill!
What My Readers Are Saying About Feast
It’s kind of amazing to see a project like this finally come full circle. But the real delight for me is hearing how others are enjoying the recipes.
Just wanted to let you know, Gwen, that all of your recipes were a hit! Hubby said it was the best Thanksgiving meal he could remember & he is not a THM follower- he likes his unhealthy carbs, so I consider it a huge success! Thanks so much for putting these recipes together.
I love your recipes in this! Thanksgiving was a success with many of your recipes!!! ~Becky Y.
Gwen, just wanted to let you know how beautiful your cookbook is, well worth the wait!! Thanks for sharing your THM knowledge, it’s a big help. Looking forward to your next book!!
Love my new book, Gwen!! Excellent presentation! Looking forward to cooking these recipes.
Honestly I love it! The quality is fantastic for a self published book. I’ve collected many self published over the years, there are some that the book quality is terrible. I am going to be making the whole cranberry sauce tonight! ~Sarah V.
The cornbread is awesome and hubby approved…I was very impressed as a country grown TX cornbread eating gal.
“I made the caramel sauce from your cookbook today. Oh my! It is delectable! If anyone want to be slightly obsessed, give it a try.”

The Perfect Roast Turkey Breast recipe is a favorite that I make year round. It’s so simple, and it turns out amazing every time…perfectly moist and full of flavor.
