THM Trim Healthy Table Menu September 23 - 29, 2019


Welcome to my blog!  I have been blogging and meal planning etc with the THM lifestyle since May of 2013.  I think it is safe to say I am kinda a THM for life. It married the ideals I had for health and wellness in the perfect way.  I have lost 50 pounds, but had a few hiccups that have resulted in a few pounds climbing back on with age and some health challenges.  But I haven't thrown in the towel. I have just kept keeping on. Its slower to come back off than before, but that is ok. Its still COMING OFF.  

I am currently cooking through the latest THM Cookbook, Trim Healthy Table.  I am almost finished. I will probably declare that I have finished in October or November. There are so few recipes that I haven't tried. Last year I cooked through the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook.  I have already picked a book for next year that I plan to start after my food pantry challenge in January/February.

I started a FB group, called THM New Habits Challenge for some interactive support and new habits challenge. You can also participate on IG if you are more of an IG person.

THM Trim Healthy Table Menu September 16 - 22, 2019



I was watching a neat vlog called Our Tribe of Many and they were going through THT trying each recipe. I thought what a good idea! I have made almost ALL the recipes in the original book and the Trim Healthy Cookbook. This year I am cooking through Trim Healthy Table.  I have made a few recipes from the cookbook, but not as many as I would like obviously.  I don't really have any favorites yet. I have made so few recipes. Exactly why I am making a goal to cook through the Trim Healthy Table cookbook this year! What recipes have YOU tried and LOVED?

It took me a year to cook through the THM Cookbook. I have attempted to schedule the WHOLE book for the year and I haven't finished yet.  I am kinda afraid to commit to a year schedule because we tend to shop and cook with the ingredients that I find on sale or cheap. So although I am sure that works well for some, it does not work for my family and budget. I did a schedule for a month at a time the past few weeks and I struggled to finish up the menu. For this season in life I need to shop weekly to get the best price for the produce etc.

So without more chit chat, here is the menu for our week.  All recipes are from the Trim Healthy Table Cookbook unless stated.  Please check out our Mixing With Michelle Facebook page and our New Habits Challenge Facebook group for even more encouragement.

Trim Healthy Table Menu Plan for September 2 - 8, 2019



I have been cooking through the Trim Healthy Table Cookbook since the beginning of the year. I am starting to run out of recipes to try!  So as a treat to myself I am going to take a break for the month of July and use some recipes of  fellow bloggers and a few other books I have on hand.   I am getting a little burned out on cooking through the cookbooks.  I cooked my way through the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook last year.  So I am not new to the game of cooking through a cookbook.

I also haven't included a shopping list in a long time.  My computer decided to die a while back and it isn't easy to write up a shopping list etc without all my fancy tools. I finally got my computer back so I can start. But I am still playing catch up with a few other areas in my life, mainly my garden, so once I am "caught up" (ha ha) I will start to include them.

With gardening in full swing I have as many greens as I can EAT!

I am going to be tweaking the recipes to make them THM friendly as you can see.  I am also using a few THM Cookbook recipes to fill in the gaps.

I eat seasonally because I garden extensively. My dad has graciously given me a large garden space that I put to good use!
