My little one is home sick today with an upset stomach. I think it’s because he ate a whole tube of Pringles chips last night during the Super Bowl…that will teach me to monitor him more closely in the future!
After all that snacking last night, I’m happy to get back to a regular menu this week, with more veggies and less chips 🙂
My husband picked out our meals this week; I had him sit down with the Food for Life and Trim Healthy Mama cookbooks and tell me what meals he wanted me to make. As you can see, the menu is practically all chili and burgers 😉
We’re trying out a new-to-us recipe this week for Chili Dog Pie, from Food for Life. I’m not a huge fan of chili dogs, but if it’s something the boys like, I’ll try it at least once.
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 or ham and cheese in low-carb wrap (S)
Snacky dinner for Super Bowl–chips and dip, popcorn, mini sausages in homemade BBQ sauce (Crossover)
Kielbasa and Cabbage skillet, deviled eggs (S)
Wicked White Chili, baked corn chips (E)
Chili Dog Pie, salad (S)
Bunless burgers, broccoli salad (my husband loves this so much that he requests it every week!) (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 links). 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.
