Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to kick off the new week with a healthy menu plan!

I’ve got some easy skillet dinners on the menu this week so that I don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Skillet meals are my favorite because not only are they quick to make, but the clean-up afterward is easy too!

The Tuscan Cream Chicken from the Trim Healthy Table cookbook is so easy, but it tastes like a gourmet meal that you would pay lots of money for at a restaurant. It’s got all whole ingredients too…and I can sneak two different veggies in that my kids don’t really realize they are eating!

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:

Eggs, berries (S)
Sweatpants Oatmeal, 1/2 banana (E)
Yuck Yum Bitty (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)

Leftovers most days
Turkey or ham and cheese in low-carb wrap (S)

Tuscan Cream Chicken, spaghetti squash (S)
BBQ Meatballs (adjusted to make THM friendly), cauliflower rice (S)
Taco Cornbread Bake, salad (S)
Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole (S)
Cabbage Roll in a Bowl, salad (S)
Homemade pizza, salad (Crossover)
Eat Out (S)

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and the Trim Healthy Table Cookbook (affiliate links). We’ve been using the THM cookbook for practically all our meals for the past few months and we love everything we’ve tried so far.

    I purchased the homemaking bundle. I can’t wait to find time to dig into all those great books and stuff.

    Your menu plan looks yummy this week. Tonight we are having stir fry chicken and vegetables. We haven’t had it in a while and it sounds good since today is pretty warm almost 80 degrees.

    A big jump from yesterday at 65 and rainy. But it going to cool down again for the weekend.

    I hope you have a great week!

      The bundle has so many good things in it! Hope you enjoy yours 🙂

      We’re also having big temperature jumps…yesterday I was in a t-shirt and felt warm, today it’s rainy and cold and I’m wearing a sweater.

      Wishing you a good week too!
