Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend celebrating Father’s Day 🙂

The kids only have two more days of school left, and then we’ll be in full-time summer mode. I’m really looking forward to a less hectic schedule and doing some fun things together as a family.

I’m also trying to make meal plans that are a bit easier on me…things that are quick to prepare and clean up, so that I’m not in the kitchen too much.

And since it’s finally warming up, I’m getting out the grill twice this week, making my husband a steak for Father’s Day and cooking pork chops, which is probably my favorite thing to make on the grill.

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, 1/2 banana (E)
Sprouted wheat pancakes, bacon, strawberries (Crossover)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)

Leftovers most days
Salad with canned tuna or leftover taco meat (S)
Turkey or ham and cheese in low-carb wrap (S)

Cabb and Saus skillet, deviled eggs (S)
Pork Chops on the grill, coleslaw (S)
Taco Night (taco-seasoned ground beef, cheese, sour cream and salsa piled on a bed of lettuce) (S)
Chicken Parmy, zoodles, broccoli (S)
Homemade pizza, salad (Crossover)
Steak on the grill, broccoli salad, Trimtastic Chocolate Zucchini Cake — Our Father’s Day dinner (S)
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.

    Our weather has gotten a little warmer too. Today is going to be close to 90 but then we are going to have a few cooler days.

    We are having easy dinners this week that we don’t have to be cooked in the oven too. Over the weekend we grilled chicken for Father’s Day and we had a big green salad with chicken which was really yummy and a good choice since it was a little warm on Sunday here.

    I hope you have a great week.
