Meal Plan Monday {19 Oct - 25 Oct '15}


I recently received the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and Trim Healthy Mama Plan from my awesome Mother-in-love.  I've been perusing the books and have planned most of my dinners for the next couple of weeks using the THM cookbook!  I haven't started it yet until I get through the whole Trim Healthy Mama Plan but figured I could go ahead and try out some of the recipes.  I've known about THM for a while now and am excited to finally "jump on the band wagon" to see how it fits into our lifestyle.  From what I've read of the plan so far, I'm excited to see that it is compatible with two different eating habits.  I need to lose weight and my hubby needs to gain weight (I wish I could give him some of my flub!).  I've been wary about different types of eating plans because of our different needs but THM specifically addresses this need and provides ways to help!  Needless to say, I'm looking forward to when we can get started :)Here's our Dinner Meal plan for the week!  Maybe someday I'll get fancy with a THM chart or something ;)
