Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday! We’re getting ready for a big snow storm this week, after experiencing 70-degree weather last week. Weird, I know, but I’ve got a menu packed full of cozy, warm comfort foods that will make the snow even more fun.

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

While trying to plan for meals this week, I took a fresh look at my new Food for Life cookbook, which is full of Trim Healthy Mama type foods. I found quite a few recipes that use sprouted wheat flour, and they looked so good that I decided to try to find some in my area so that I could make some new stuff.

I finally found some after looking at 3 stores, and while it isn’t cheap ($9.99 for 5 pounds! Yikes!), it did make the yummiest pancakes and pizza crust that we’ve had in a while. My husband was so happy to have “normal” tasting pancakes again!

Even though we aren’t at our goal weights yet, we’re eating a couple crossovers every so often, because we found that we were getting tired of the same food all the time, and would cheat by eating something way off plan. It just makes sense to go ahead and do a crossover now and then to avoid the cheating…even though I was so scared of eating crossovers for so long…eating off-plan is way worse than a crossover!)

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)
Sprouted wheat pancakes, chicken bacon, berries (Crossover)

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

Dinners
Spaghetti with Italian sausage (spaghetti squash for hubby and me, regular pasta for the kids), salad (S)
Turkey Corn Chili, baked corn chips (E)
BBQ Meatballs, cauliflower, green beans (S)
Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole (S)
Corned Beef, cabbage (S)
Homemade Pizza, salad (Crossover)
Eat Out (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.

  1. Yeah, for finding the sprouted wheat flour. Sorry, it’s so costly.
