Menu Plans for Busy Moms

The weather has turned super cold here in the mid-Atlantic region…feeling almost like January rather than November. Which means I’m putting lots of warm, yummy casseroles on the menu plan this 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.

I’m also trying out the new Trim Healthy Noodles in the Fat-Burning Chicken Noodle Soup recipe from the Trim Health Table cookbook.

We’ve tried shirataki noodles from the grocery store once before, and thought they were OK…the ultra-chewy texture was a little weird for us.

The new Trim Healthy Noodles are supposed to be a little softer, so I’m hoping we’ll like them. Especially since I have 4 bags of them to use up!

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, 1/2 banana, collagen coffee (E)
Pumpkin BAM cake, berries (S)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, sauteed zucchini and mushrooms (S)

Leftovers most days
Ham and cheese on a low-carb wrap, berries (S)
Sweetie on Steroids (E)

Meatball Casserole, salad (S)
Chicken Broccoli Mushroom Stir-Fry, brown rice (E)
Fat-Burning Chicken Noodle Soup, Wonderful White Blender Bread (S)
Taco Salad (S)
Spaghetti Dinner at the kids’ school (I’m skipping the spaghetti, and will fill up on salad and meatballs)
Cheesy Tuna Casserole, green beans (S)
Eat Out

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Table Cookbook (affiliate link).

    Our weather turned stormy here last night with high winds and rain. It’s definitely comfort food weather here too.

    I see you have chessy tuna casserole on your menu plan. That sounds so good. I haven’t made it at our house in a while.

    I hope you have a great week!

      The cheesy tuna casserole is so good! It uses cooked cauliflower in place of noodles (it’s a low-carb recipe), and is just so warm and yummy 🙂

      My kids aren’t too fond of tuna, but my husband and I love it, so I’m making it for us 😉

      Have a good week Shelly!
