I've told you in a few posts that I've been dabbling in the Trim Healthy Mama diet for the past two months. It's really hard to completely stick to any diet when I have this blog to run, haha! I had about 25 lbs to lose and I'm 15 down now, so I would say that it works - it just comes off slowly. That's probably due to the fact that I stick to the eating plan MOST (not all) of the time! I have to sample things that I make, you know... ;)

It's especially difficult to be on any diet when you have a family to cook for each night, too. Essentially, dinners need to be either low carb or low fat to be "on plan." I would hear some mumbling over some of the dinners I tried out on them, but NOT this one! It's so much healthier than a traditional eggroll because there's no deep fried wrapper!

One of the amazing women in the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook group created the idea for this recipe, and it has been one of my favorite dinners to make ever since! My version below is quite a bit simpler, and it really does taste like an eggroll in a bowl! I would make sure you use low sodium soy sauce, because the sausage is quite a bit salty on its own. 

If you're looking for a low carb way to enjoy your favorite Chinese takeout egg rolls, you absolutely NEED to try this meal! You can substitute ground turkey for the sausage, or even mini shrimp as some commenters below have tried. Serve it over a bed of greens for a nice salad the next day at lunch, too. I'm loving all the ideas you all are coming up with - leave yours in the comment section below as well!

      I know Lindsay, I do love the fried wrapper too! I'll splurge when we get takeout, haha.
