It’s a cold and dreary start to the week here in Maryland, with high wind and rain, but we’re going to stay warm and cozy with a week’s worth of home-cooked dinners, thanks to our menu plan!
I fell off the THM wagon hard this weekend 🙁 My husband was off on Friday for the inauguration (they wanted employees who work in Washington DC to stay home on Friday in order to lighten up the travel congestion), so we had a rare treat of a breakfast out after the kids went to school.
We went to Cracker Barrel, and I splurged by eating their delicious biscuits, and then the rest of the weekend was just one big downhill slide. I’m almost afraid to get on the scale today.
But today is a new day and I’ve got a fridge full of THM goodies and I’m going to get back on plan. I don’t feel as good when I eat high-glycemic carbs, and that’s a good reminder to get back to healthier eating. I just wish I could remember that when I’m about to shove a biscuit into my mouth 😉
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:
Eggs, berries (S)
Oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder, 1/2 banana (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)
Leftovers most days
Turkey and cheese in low-carb wrap (S)
Trim Zuppa Toscana, salad (S)
Salisbury Steak, collagen creamed spinach (S)
Taco Chicken Bowls over salad instead of rice (FP)
Pan-fried Pork Chops, Broccoli salad (S)
BBQ Meatballs, green beans, cauliflower (S)
Eat Out 2 times (S)
I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and the Food for Life Cookbook (affiliate link). We’ve been using the THM cookbook for practically all our meals for the past few months and we love everything we’ve tried so far.
