Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! How was your Thanksgiving? I hope it was a wonderful time with your family ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

Our THM Thanksgiving feast was SO yummy! The stuffing was really good, but the pumpkin custard was the star of the show ๐Ÿ™‚

This recipe is in the Trim Healthy Table cookbook, and I put it in a pie pan to mimic pumpkin pie. I doubled the Gentle Sweet, and put in only half the coconut oil, and it was SO good!

I was surprised at how close to a traditional pumpkin pie it was in taste and texture. I also love that it’s actually healthy for me, and that I can eat the leftovers for breakfast without guilt ๐Ÿ˜‰

This week, I’m trying some new things from the cookbook, including a Trimmy Bisque! (Serene’s rant in the cookbook is so funny!) Looking forward to Egg Roll in a Bowl with riced cauliflower instead of cabbage 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.
