Menu Plan Monday

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 🙂

Get a jump start on your week by making a menu plan!

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 chili…Save My Sanity Chili, to be exact. It’s made completely in the slow cooker, no pre-cooking necessary. I’m going to put it in the crock pot when we get home from church, to make Sunday dinner a breeze.

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)

Brats and coleslaw, deviled eggs (S)
Pizza Casserole, broccoli (S)
Oven Fajitas, salad (S)
Swedish Meatballs, cauli rice (S)
Burger Bombs, salad (S)
Save My Sanity Chili, corn chips (E)
Eat Out

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.

    My son loves Pringles too. He would eat a whole can too if we let him. Your menu looks yummy the broccoli salad sounds good. Do you cook the broccoli or is raw? My daughter can’t stand raw broccoli but will eat pretty much any other food, so I was wondering about it.

    I hope you had a great week!

      It sounds like our sons would be great friends…they are so much alike! 🙂

      The broccoli salad is made with raw broccoli. I’m not a big fan of raw broccoli either, but I do like this salad because it has a sweet dressing and bacon. You could always try a small batch and see if she will like it.

    We have issues when we buy Pringles, too. LOL — I get after my kids and remind them over and over that they can have a stack of chips (maybe 10-15 chips) and then they need to put the lid back on and put them back. I avoid having those chips in the house too often because they’re SO EASY to eat…and just keep eating, especially for my boys.

    I hope your son feels better soon! Poor little guy!!

    Your menu plan sounds good, Erin! 🙂
