Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! Wow, can it be July already? I’m not sure what happened to June…guess I was too busy with kids’ activities and the end of the school year to remember it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Weekly menu planning can help busy moms save time and money prepping meals for their families. The weekly Trim Healthy Mama menu is full of Trim Healthy Mama recipes to keep you on plan. Using healthy menu plans gives you options for breakfast, lunch and dinner that the whole family will love.

Well, I gave the painting a good try, but only managed to finish 3 rooms and a hallway before running out of paint…and my family running out of patience ๐Ÿ˜‰

My husband asked me to take a few days off from painting to work on putting the finished rooms back together, and I’m so glad he did. The kids both have new bookshelves in their rooms and they look great. We also tackled a lot of toy de-cluttering, which enabled us to get rid of a LOT of outgrown toys and books.

Unfortunately, cooking dinner took a back seat to all the house work, and we ended up eating out a few times. So you’ll see a few repeats this week from last week’s plan, since I already had the makings for these meals on hand.

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

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

Dinners
Burgers on the grill, broccoli salad (S)
Chicken Parmy, salad (S)
Cowboy Grub (E)
Chicken Fajitas in the slow cooker (S)
Chicken Stir Fry with brown rice (E)
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. Sounds like you got a lot of painting done this week. I know when I’m working on a project we end up eating out more or eating freezer meals instead of what I had planned.

    Your menu looks yummy and I hope you and your family had a great 4th of July too.
