There are so many great bloggers who create THM recipes. I thought it would be fun to do a meal plan that includes many of my THM blogging buddies' recipes. I have tried most of these and loved them, and a couple of these are new for my family and I to try.  I'm excited for the menu this week!

  1. This is so awesome. Thank you for sharing all this - it is so helpful and your choices are pretty much right up my ally.

  2. I would love to see some nighttime snacks ideas as I know some are too rich to have at night

    1. I'm not a big night time snacker, never really have been. But sometimes if I feel like I need a little something I will grab a small handful of nuts or have low fat cottage cheese and fresh veggies.
