Menu Plans for Busy Moms

Happy Monday! Are you ready to kick off the new week with a healthy menu plan?

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 getting a late start this week on my menu. We had a super busy Saturday, and I couldn’t get my meal plan and grocery lists made up until Sunday afternoon. I then got online to place my grocery order, but didn’t realize until after I had spent a good 30 minutes entering all my items, that they didn’t have any times available for pick-up until today.

So I had to rummage through my pantry and fridge to come up with enough to make breakfast and lunches for the kids’ school day this morning. We managed to have a nice breakfast and lunch, but I’ll be happy to get my groceries later today!

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:

Breakfasts
Eggs, berries (S)
Oatmeal, 1/2 banana (E)
Scrambled Eggs with cheese, bacon, berries (S)

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

Dinners

Troodle Casserole, salad (S)
Taco Night (S)

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and the Food for Life 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.
