Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! I am so excited that soup weather has finally arrived this week, because I can’t wait to try out some more of the new soups in the Trim Healthy Table cookbook 🙂

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 was able to make Cheeseburger Soup this weekend and it was a hit with the whole family…even my uber-picky little guy, who ate a whole bowl. That’s huge! And I love that he didn’t even know that he was eating big servings of veggies hidden in among the hamburger and cheese 🙂

Today I’m doing a lentil soup in my slow cooker, and we’re trying Lemon Cream Chicken later in the week. I’m also mixing in some old family favorites like Breakfast for Dinner and our trusty BBQ Meatballs, now that it’s cool enough to use the oven.

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.
