Menu Plan Monday

Good morning and happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. My week is starting off well, since I’ve got my whole menu planned for the week and I won’t have to stress about dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

Pizza is one of my kids’ favorite dinners, and if you can believe it, they actually like my homemade pizza better than take-out.

If you haven’t tried the easy E bread recipe from THM blogger Gwen’s Nest, you should! Although I’ve made it quite a bit in the past, I have been using other S pizza dough recipes, along with regular pizza dough for my kids, when I do pizza night.

This recipe is great because the dough uses regular wheat flour, but sits in the fridge for a week, during which the carbs in the flour are reduced…I’m not sure where they go, maybe the yeast feeds on them?…so that you have a low-glycemic bread dough that makes a great pizza. The recipe makes two crusts or one crust and one small loaf of bread, which is great for sandwiches or toast. Everyone in my family loves it!

I’m trying it again this week, making two pizzas this time, since my kids are eating so much more at meal time than they did a few years ago ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Breakfasts
Eggs, berries (S)
Strawberry Big Boy Smoothie (FP)
Easy E bread toast, cottage cheese, banana (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, sausage, berries (S)

Lunches
Leftovers most days
Turkey sandwich on Easy E Bread, orange (E)

Dinners
Chicken Parmy, broccoli (S)
Lazy Lasagna, frozen veggies (S)
Salisbury steak, green beans (S)
Bangin’ Ranch Drums, salad (S)
Homemade pizza using Gwen’s bread recipe, salad (Crossover)
Eat Out (S)
Leftovers (S)

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.

    1. Thanks Jen! I’m so glad you stopped by ๐Ÿ™‚

      I just saw your THM Freezer Cooking plan on MoneySavingMom.com…so excited to try it out!

    1. It was so good…I got the one with the asparagus (can’t remember the name) and just loved it. Can’t wait to go back ๐Ÿ™‚

      Have a great week Sandra!

  1. So glad you lost more weight this week! It’s also great you’ve found a bread recipe you like that is low carb. I know I think limiting bread would be the hardest thing for me on a low carb diet. I love to make bread there is just something therapeutic to me about kneading the bread, it gives me time to think.

    I hope this was a great week for you!

    1. Thank you so much Shelly! I really love bread too, and although this recipe is low-carb, it tastes like regular bread. I have to limit myself to once a week though, but I don’t miss it as much as I did right at first.
