This is an exciting week on my blog! I'm giving away a bag of THM Sweet Blend & a personalized meal plan (including a shopping list) to one lucky winner. If you missed that post CLICK HERE TO ENTER. Can't wait to see who wins!

I'm utilizing my crock pot a couple of times this week. Now that it's (almost) summer and the warm weather is starting to really crank up, we don't want any additional heat in our houses. Put your crock pot in the garage and let it cook out there. You get a great dinner and didn't make your air conditioner work any harder than it has to.

As a reminder all of my breakfasts and lunches, unless otherwise noted, serve and are portioned in the grocery list for just one. The dinners are all portioned to serve six and that is reflected in the grocery list as well.

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

Monday:
B - 0% Greek Yogurt sweetened to taste with THM Sweet Blend & 2 T. of peanut butter mixed in with water to drink (S)
L - leftover Egg Roll in a Bowl (from Sunday night) with Cider Pop to drink (S) *I didn't include the ingredients for this dish on the shopping list since this was leftover from last week.
S - Cottage Berry Whip with water to drink (FP) *Making a double batch and putting half in the freezer to have a serving for snack tomorrow.
D - "Spaghetti"** with Meat Sauce and a side salad with Ranch with water to drink (S) **I made zucchini noodles in place of regular noodles. 1 1/2 medium zucchini is the perfect amount for me. The rest of my family ate whole wheat noodles. You can use store bought sauce, just make sure it has NO added sugar. 

Tuesday:
B - Peanut Butter Milkshake (S)
L - Waldorf Cottage Cheese Salad with water to drink (E) pg. 300
S - leftover Cottage Berry Whip with water to drink (FP)
D - Zesty Salsa Chicken & Black Bean Casserole and steamed broccoli with Cider Pop to drink (E)

Wednesday:
B - Fat Stripping Frappa (FP) pg. 240 *I'm making the strawberry version. 
L - Just Like Campbell's Tomato Soup with Cider Pop to drink (S) pg. 292
S - leftover Fat Stripping Frappa from breakfast (FP)
D - White Chicken Lasagna and green beans with water to drink (S) *I'm going to make this in the crock pot.

Thursday:
B - Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Swirl with Sweet & Spicy Tea to drink (E) pg. 250
L - Very Berry Salad with Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette with Cider Pop to drink (S)
S - 1 oz. cheddar cheese and small handful of almonds with water to drink (S)
D - Whole chicken in the crock pot* and roasted vegetables with water to drink (S) *Remove the innards from the chicken (if there are any), rinse under cold water (be sure to sanitize your sink), pat dry with a paper towel and place breast side up in the crock pot. Rub with a little bit of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme. Cook on low 6-7 hours or on high 3-4 hours. The chicken will literally fall off the bone and be amazing!

Friday:

  3. Darcie, I just want to thank you for sharing your wonderful meal plan and recipes! Although I am not following THM per se, I am looking for recipes that are gluten free and low sugar. I tweaked your recipes for the Peanut Butter Milkshake and the Eggroll In A Bowl, and my husband and I absolutely loved them! I can't thank you enough for sharing!

  4. I just discovered your blog and am totally new to THM and feeling very overwhelmed, so I am so thankful to discover your meal plans! We're just a family of 3 & our toddler doesn't eat much, so I wanted to make sure I'm reading your lists correctly...they're for a family of 6, right? So I would just do half and then maybe have a little bit extra? Which would be fine for my hubby :) Thanks!

    1. All my dinners are portioned for 6, so yes cut those in half, or you could have leftovers. All the breakfasts, lunches and snacks are portioned for just one, unless I otherwise note it on the meal plan.
