Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday! Are you all ready for a new week? I know Mondays aren’t the most fun days of the week, but with our menu for the week all ready to go, it makes starting a new week a little less painful ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

We had the busiest weekend this past week, and I didn’t get to cook very much, since we always seemed to be out around dinner time. We opted for pizza one night (so totally off-plan!), and a solid S salad bowl from Chipotle last night.

Little slips like pizza night are making it harder to get past the weight I’ve been at for the past several months. It’s really my own lack of self-control that’s the problem, but the kids are always asking how much longer I’m going to be on my diet because they don’t always like the food we eat. So it’s a bit harder to stay on track ๐Ÿ™

Luckily, this week we’re having some of their on-plan favorites, and I’m planning for lots of leftovers to eat for lunches, so I should have a solid week on plan, making for a good jumpstart ๐Ÿ™‚

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:

Breakfasts
Eggs, berries (S)
Oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder, 1/2 banana (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)

Lunches
Leftovers most days
Turkey or ham and cheese in low-carb wrap (S)

Dinners
Hubby Lovin’ Chicken, broccoli (S)
Shrimp Fried Double Rice (E)
Cabb and Saus Skillet, deviled eggs (S)
Garlic and Herb Tilapia, mashed cauliflower, green beans (S)
Steak Fajitas, salad (S)
Tootsie Bell Night (bean burritos) (Crossover)
Eat Out (S)

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and the Trim Healthy Table Cookbook (affiliate links). We’ve been using the THM cookbooks for practically all our meals for the past few months and we love everything we’ve tried so far.

  1. I think it is harder to stick to an eating plan when life gets busy. Good for you eating at Chipotle to stay on plan for that busy night.

    I hope this week is a great one for you and you have a fun Valentine’s Day too.
