My review for THM Menu for April 9-15, 2018


I have made so many NEW to me recipes from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, I wanted to record what we all thought of them. Some were hits and some were not. A few we didn't get to make so I will add them to another menu to try.  Not sure I will ever make ALL the recipes from the cookbook, but I do want to make good use out of the book. I tend to make the same things over and over and I want to get out of that rut... for a now anyway.  

I haven't been using all the recipes again. I think I need to go back down a few for suppers and just accept that. I use to make more, but I am so busy we miss them. No need to prep for them if I am not going to use them.  I am NOT making salads because I am loosing motivation. I have made all the salads in the book and I can't find one that is just "me" or one that I could eat all the time. Anyone have a favorite I should consider? I want to make 2 different ones a week to make sure I get in my greens. Especially spinach. 

Breakfasts: - for the shakes and smoothies, I am going to use Kefir instead of cottage cheese and Almond Milk.  I make smoothies almost daily to go along with my breakfast.
