Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend and are ready to start the week with a new fall menu plan!

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’ve been waiting for the real fall weather to show up and stick around, but it hasn’t happened yet. Yesterday was so hot and humid, I barely went outside, and only because we had to go to church 😉

That means I haven’t been able to try many of the soups in the new Trim Healthy Table cookbook, since it’s just too hot. Luckily, we are going to have some cooler weather toward the middle of the week, so I put one lonely soup on the menu.

My THM order did arrive early last week and so I was able to try the new Hello Health Sipper (YUM!), the Peanut Banana BAM cake, and the Peanut Butter Cookie muffins. All were great. (Evidently, I’m having a peanut butter craving…) I’m planning to try the Chocolate Moistess Cupcakes this week…basically, they are a Hostess cupcake knockoff.

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:

Oatmeal with freeze-dried strawberries, cottage cheese (E)
Maple Pumpkin Oatmeal (sugar-free version), strawberries (E)
Peanut Butter Muffins, banana (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)

Leftovers most days
