Meal Plan Monday: 6/16-6/22/14

Wondering how or why to meal plan? Read this first. Wondering what all the letters (S, E, FP) mean after each meal? Check this out. I've also added page numbers if the recipe comes from the Trim Healthy Mama book. If you're still in search of even more meals take a look at my top 30 "E" meals and my top 30 "S" meals. Also be sure to follow me on Pinterest so you never miss a meal plan, tip or recipe.

Now that summer is in full swing and the warmer weather has arrived, (it's taken the weather a bit here in Michigan to realize that it is in fact summer) I am making shakes and smoothies like a crazy person. I love them! They are the perfect breakfast or snack, and I love that they are portable without much fuss. Even my kids are into them! If you missed my post last week on my 20 favorite shakes, smoothies and cold drinks, be sure to check it out.

Here's what we'll be eating this week:

S - Almonds and 1 oz. cheddar cheese (S)

  1. Darcie, is this menu plan for weight loss on THM?

    1. I know that was probably a dumb question since it is a menu for THM but I wanted to be sure :) I want to use some of your menus and I have about 80 more lbs to lose. Thanks so much for doing this!

    2. Not a dumb question at all! Glad my menus can be of some help! :)

  2. Thank you Darcie, this will help a lot. I am a newbie and this will give me some direction.

    1. So glad it can be helpful to you!
