Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! We’re back from vacation and I’m so happy to get back to my normal routine, including making up a menu plan. After eating out so much while out of town, it’s good to have some home-cooked meals again 🙂

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.

I’m trying out a bunch of new-to-us recipes this week, including some new things from the upcoming (affiliate link) Trim Healthy Table cookbook.


This new cookbook won’t be available for about 2 more weeks, but those of us that pre-ordered the book received a little bonus printable of several new recipes from the book.

If you’d like to pre-order the book and receive the bonus items, which includes a free month in the membership site, head over here to see how to do it.

I can’t wait to try these new and yummy-looking recipes…it’s always nice to have something a little different from time to time, rather than always eating the same meals over and over again.

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:

Sprouted wheat pancakes, cottage cheese (E)

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.
