This week's meal plan is going to be VERY simple. We decided that we're going to sell our house, so now we have a lot to do. Like paint every. single. wall. So I'm keeping things on the food front as simple as possible. I boiled a half dozen eggs this morning to use as a quick addition to lunch or a snack. I'm utilizing my crock pot a bit as well this week. I love throwing things together quick in the morning and not have to think about cooking dinner.

For those of you who were wondering what crock pot I use, it is the Hamilton Beach Stay or Go Slow Cooker, 6 qt. I've had it about 2 years and absolutely love it! My favorite feature is that the lid latches and makes it so easy to take to a potluck or a family get together without worry of your food spilling all over the car. I highly recommend it!

  1. I just started following the THM eating plan and I keep messing it up. What's the easiest way to stay on track? I do have kids and I have to also cook and prepare for them. I seem to do well for a couple days and then go back to my old habits.

    1. For me the best way to stay on track is by having a meal plan and the sticking to it. Also, having an accountability partner to check on with daily or even weekly has been huge for me.

  2. Thanks for makings these available to us! I want to start using them, but I have a question. For how many people does the shopping list have ingredients for when a recipe indicates 1 serving? I would like for my husband and I to both be on plan, plus we have 3 kids eating too.
