Good morning! Ready for a brand new week…and a brand new week of meals?
This past week was really bad for me in terms of staying on our Trim Healthy Mama plan. I ate off plan many times, and I’m sure the scale is going to reflect that when I weigh in later today.
I decided to go back to my Trim Healthy Mama Plan (affiliate link) book and use one of their pre-planned menus to try to get myself back on track.
One of the reasons that I think I’ve gone off plan so much is that I’m kind of tired of eating the same foods over and over again. We’ve definitely found some favorite meals over the past few months, and I’ve been making them quite often. I also think that when I allow myself some off-plan carbs, like pizza made with a white flour crust from our favorite pizza restaurant for example, my body craves more of it. When I stay on-plan, I have no cravings at all.
Of course, the beginning of Lent is this week, and we usually go to our church’s Pancake Supper for dinner on Tuesday night. We’ll do that again this year, and I’ll have to stay away from the pancakes and fill up on eggs and sausage instead. I hope I can do it!
Here’s what’s on the menu this week:
Eggs with sausage (S)
Egg and turkey bacon in a low-carb wrap (S)
Chocolate Waffles with berries (E)
Strawberry Big Boy Smoothie (FP)

Tomato Soup, grilled cheese on a Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread (this is an affiliate link–they are usually much cheaper at your local grocery store or Walmart) (S)

Egg Roll in a Bowl, broccoli (E)

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook (affiliate link). We’ve been using this cookbook for practically all our meals for the past few months and we love everything we’ve tried so far.
