Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your family 🙂 Now it’s time to get back to regular life, which means menu planning 🙂
Please note, this post contains affiliate links.
I don’t know about you, but I ate terribly over the holidays. The food was all very good, but it was loaded with sugar or white flour, and I ended up feeling very blah.
So I definitely need a re-start to get back into healthy eating!
To that end, I’m setting a few goals for myself in the eating department. I’m not going to be super strict about any of these, because Trim Healthy Mama is all about food freedom, but I do want to try to be a bit better about getting more greens and other goodies into my diet regularly.
Here’s what I’m planning:
- eat several big salads each week in order to get more leafy greens,
- drink kefir several times a week (My favorite way to use it is in the Yuck Yum Bitty in the Trim Healthy Table book),
- eat more okra…in smoothies, and by roasting it as a side veggie with our dinners,
- drink a sipper almost every day (I like the Good Girl Moonshine and Hello Health Sippers best, although I usually leave out the red pepper from the latter, since I never seem to have any on hand).
If you are also thinking about changing up your family’s way of eating, it’s really a good time to do it! And if you need some help, check out my menu planning resources (in the left sidebar), or get yourself the Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle!
With so many different meal styles to choose from, you’re sure to find something to help you plan healthy meals for the whole family.
This bundle is only available for purchase until this Friday, January 5th at midnight, so don’t wait too long to check it out if you think you might be interested 🙂
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.
