My Trim Healthy Mama Menu for May 4-10, 2020

Hello!  Thank you for stopping in and visiting Mixing With Michelle.  I have been doing THM since May of 2013.  It has been an eventful journey, but very worth it. I have enjoyed cooking through all 3 of the THM cookbooks. I can't want for their new one to start a new adventure.


I am taking a break from cooking though a cookbook the next few months. I am challenging myself to use up the last of the garden goodies and use a few more eggs in my menu. 

Trying to be a little more pro-active for the next month or so. Making a on plan bread/rolls I can use in an FP or S setting.  Also some sort of cracker or salty snack to have on hand.

I started a FB group, called THM New Habits Challenge Round 2 for some interactive support and new habits challenge. You can also participate on IG if you are more of an IG person.

My THM Menu for March 30-April 5, 2020

Hello!  Thank you for stopping in and visiting Mixing With Michelle.  I have been doing THM since May of 2013.  It has been an eventful journey, but very worth it. I have enjoyed cooking through all 3 of the THM cookbooks. I can't want for their new one to start a new adventure.

The next 2/3 months I am going to be working on eating down my pantry shelves. I have a garden each year and I use it to help lower my grocery bill.  With having cooked through the cookbooks I haven't been as frugal as I like to be. Winter is normally a smaller food budget.  I am hoping I can do a better job of less waste and eat my freezer down a bit.  I grow a garden for a good reason. 

I started a FB group, called THM New Habits Challenge Round 2 for some interactive support and new habits challenge. You can also participate on IG if you are more of an IG person. 

Jen, from the Well Planned Kitchen had a great free course a bit ago and I took a few gems away from her classes. I like to meal prep, but I kinda fell out of the loop of ease that I use to do... or she suggested. It is always nice to take a refresher and learn a few things, or in my case to be reminded of things you use to do.

I found this great book, The Ultimate Ketogenic Cookbook (UKC), by Ella Sanders at my library that I found a few recipes to try. I thought I would finish in February, but we were hit with some sickness for 2 weeks so I will finish up in March. So I have only 1 week left!

Breakfast:
Cherry Cobbler Smoothie THM E
California Eggs Benedict p.23 THM S


Lunch: - leftovers!
Broccoli Cheese Soup p.33 THM S
Italian Artichokes Salad p.48 THM S
Italian Sub Lettuce Roll Up p.30 THM S

Baked Salmon with Tapenade p.77 THM S

THM New Habits Challenge 2020 Round 2


Welcome to my 3rd year of THM New Habits challenges!  I would like to continue some new habits that are THM related.  Anyone want to join me? The challenge group will run for 6-8 weeks. I am going to pick 3 things to do for 6+ weeks to help me better my THM journey. We will start our next challenge on March 1 and ends April 30, 2020 .  THM does not manage or endorse the group’s content.

For the next 8+ weeks I want to be consistent in:


- Sweet potato and Lentils once a week
- Eat fruit 2 times a week. My E meals tend to be bread or popcorn with yogurt.
- Making my own seed cycling trail mix


If this is something you want to join in and keep me accountable, there are 2 ways to do it. Join my FB challenge group or on IG #THMnewhabitschallenge2020.  If you want to join the group I will expect you to check in weekly with pictures or participating in discussions. I want the group to help keep me be accountable. So if you don't plan to post weekly, the IG challenge might be a better fit.  All you need to "join" is posting a picture of your prepping or meal to keep each other encouraged to keep going.  This group is about building new habits to help us in our journey. If we mess up, that is ok. Just restart again in 3 hours.

Once this challenge is over I will hopefully have 3 new habits along with you! I will have a new set of 3 habits for the next challenge weeks.

So who is in with me????

I will be posting my progress with meeting my 3 new habits and also some suggestion and encouragement to keep us going.


My Challenges:

2020
Round 1

2019

2018


This was my last challenge.
-Veggies for 2/3 meals a day - Earth milk counts!
-Make Earth Milk 3 times a week
-3 Deep S meals a week - no dairy!

I am so PROUD of myself. I did SO MUCH better with these goals this time. I am NOT sure why. I just DID IT.
