Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday to you! Hope you had a great weekend and are ready to start the new week on a good note with a menu plan!

It’s looking like a bit of a busy week around here, with a birthday and, of course, Easter to celebrate. I decided to make a simple Easter meal this year, since it will just be the four of us.

We’ll be busy with coloring eggs, piano lessons, and sports, so I’m keeping our meals easy this week.

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Breakfasts
Eggs, berries (S)
Strawberry Big Boy Smoothie (FP)
Sprouted Wheat English Muffin, cottage cheese, orange (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)

Lunches
Leftovers most days
Sweetie on Steroids (E)
Tuna salad on pita, salad (S)

Dinners
Trim Mac Salad (S)
Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole (S)
Shrimp Fried Double Rice, broccoli (E)
Easy Pizza Casserole, salad (S)
Tuscan Cream Chicken, broccoli (S)
Ham, broccoli salad, deviled eggs, Peanut Butter Trimtastic Cake (S)
Eat out

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and the Trim Healthy Table 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.

  1. We had Chicken Parmesan last week and it was so good. I hadn’t made it in a while and everyone ate it without any trouble. We like jasmine rice too. I wonder what the difference is between it and regular long grain rice to make it THM friendly.

    I hope your week goes well and you and your family have a wonderful Easter.

    1. I was surprised about the jasmine rice too…it seems that jasmine rice is a whole grain rice, so it is allowed on the plan. Regular long grain rice (aka white rice) has the brown fiber removed before it is packaged, so it’s basically a very simple starch that converts easily to sugar in your body.

      I made our chicken parm with chicken tenderloins and the kids loved it! I have to remember to make that more often ๐Ÿ™‚
