Weekly I plan our menu and do grocery shopping. We may not always stick to our menu but, this outline give our busy lives one less stress. For the past couple years I’ve posted our weekly menus on our local, unoffical, THM (Trim Healthy Mama) facebook page. Not only has this kept me going but it keeps me focused on my THM lifestyle.
What is Trim Healthy Mama? Developed by Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett, Trim Healthy Mama is a lifestyle of eating which has allowed me to lose over 40 pounds. Two and a half years ago I was at a size 16 and looking for a way to lose weight after three babies. January 2014, I happened to catch a morning talk show where Serene Allison & Pearl Barrett were featured. What caught my attention? No more fads, eating desert for breakfast, and losing weight; I could get behind a program like that! I ordered the original book, read it & decided to give it a try. Within 6 months I had lost 30 pounds, was a size 6 and enjoying my workouts. In less than I year I was a size 4 and have been ever since.
Looking for a healthy style of eating? I would highly recommend trying Trim Healthy Mama. There are many supportive facebook pages, websites, bloggers and pinterest boards to help you get started. The first step I would suggest is ordering the new THM plan book and Cookbook. Many of my meals reference in our men is in the cookbook. The books don’t come spiral bound. But, I was able to bind both books with plastic covers for around $7.00 each at staples.
Here is our Family Menu and weekly shopping list for September 19- September 25. The shopping list is not complete as I don’t list items I already have in stock. I will be posting periodically family favorite meals and treats. Enjoy and welcome to my THM lifestyle!
