Easy Dinner Recipes Meal Plan

This past weekend, I went to a wellness conference at my church, where we learned all about how eating healthfully affects our bodies. It made me so grateful for the healthy menu plans I put together each week.

The wellness coach who spoke at the conference told us that we need between 9 and 13 servings of fruit and vegetables each day for optimum health. That sounds like so much! But she even admitted that she doesn’t always get in 9 servings, and she does health for a living. That made me feel a little better ๐Ÿ™‚

This week, we’re trying out a one of the salmon recipes in Trim Healthy Table, and having a big entree salad, in order to get more healthy fats and greens into our diet. I’m also going to try to eat bigger veggie portions at my meals, in order to up my vegetable servings each day.

Eating more veggies doesn’t have to be hard, especially when you’re a busy mom. One big salad of leafy greens topped with tomatoes, cucumber and beets is several servings of veggies in one meal!

As usual, my menu plan is Trim Healthy Mama-friendly. If you aren’t familiar with Trim Healthy Mama, head over to read all about how I became a Trim Healthy Mama and lost 35 pounds in 7 months.

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Breakfasts
Oatmeal, 1/2 banana, collagen coffee (E)
Fried eggs, sausage, berries (S)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, sauteed zucchini and mushrooms or spinach (S)
Yuck Yum Bitty (E)

    1. Hi Amy! I’m so glad that you stopped by here ๐Ÿ™‚ Starting THM isn’t the easiest thing in the world, but once you get the hang of the plan, it becomes much easier…plus you just feel so much better physically that you want to keep going.

      Two things really helped me get started…reading the free quick start guide at Gwen’s Nest and joining the THM Facebook group. The new Trim Healthy Table cookbook also has a great intro section that sums up the plan nicely. (I wish that had been around when I got started!).

      I also find having a meal plan helps me SO much. It helps me stay on top of everything….I don’t have to think about dinner at the last minute and I can get through the grocery store so much faster because I already have a list of ingredients that I need for the week.

      You can find my meal planning tutorial and free menu planning printable here to help you get started. I also do a weekly meal plan most weeks…I try to post on Monday mornings. I do tend to repeat a lot of meals, especially at breakfast, because I like to eat the same foods over and over, and because I don’t have to plan everything all the time. So you can copy my menus or plan out your own…or do some of both.

      I hope that helps a little! Please let me know if you have any more questions….you can respond here or email me directly at . ๐Ÿ™‚
