Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and were able to celebrate a Happy Easter!

After a week on Spring Break, it’s time for us to get back on a regular routine, starting with a new menu plan for the week 🙂

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.

My kids were off for Spring Break last week, and we had a good time together relaxing and enjoying some fun activities.

Our church hosted a dog day for kids, complete with a K9 demonstration and a visit from a local dog rescue, which was so interesting, especially because we are such big dog lovers!

We also took a day trip to Philadelphia to see some of the sights that my daughter is learning in her history class at school. To be able to stand in the room where our founding fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution was pretty mind-blowing!

The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia was so awesome, especially their short film called Freedom Rising. It made me choke up thinking about all that was sacrificed for our ability to be free.


Then yesterday we celebrated Easter with a worship at our church and a leisurely afternoon. It was a great ending to a great week 🙂

As for our menu this week, since I didn’t get a chance to do my regular grocery shopping this past weekend, I’m trying out our store’s online grocery ordering. I made up my menu this morning, then placed an order for all the items I need this week on the store’s site. It was so much easier than I had expected…hopefully the pick-up will be easy too!

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)
Baked Oatmeal, 1/2 banana (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)

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

Spaghetti(squash) with Italian sausage, green beans (S)
Taco Night (S)
General Tso’s Meatballs, brown rice, broccoli (E)
Oven Chicken Fajitas, low-carb tortillas (S)
Waffles and Bacon (Crossover)
Eat Out 2 times (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.

    I love your white dishes! I’ve been looking for some white plates, myself. Where did you get those?

    We, too, had a lovely Easter. Church and then had my parents over for a quiet, leisurely late lunch. I cooked a turkey breast so that means turkey and noodles tonight!

    I followed you here from I’m an Organizing Junkie. If you’d like to see my menu here is the link:

    Have a beautiful week.
