My THM Trim Healthy Table Menu for February 18-24, 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 Michehlle Facebook page and our New Habits Challenge Facebook group for even more encouragement.
I have not been using up my menu for the week. I am going to take a few things off the menu in an attempt to get better in using things up and not getting too much ahead.

THM New Habits Challenge 2019 Round 1


I would like to continue some new habits that are THM related this year. 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.  Anyone want to join me?  We will start our next challenge on February 4, and ends March 31st , 2019.  THM does not manage or endorse the group’s content.


For the next 6 weeks I want to be consistent in:

-Eating Okra at least 3 times a week.
-Drinking 1 gallon of water or liquid a day. - does NOT including anything caffeine.
-Eat a beets at least once a week. I am struggling with low iron.

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 #THMnewhabitschallenge2019.  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 so from LAST year

5 of the easiest things about eating Trim Healthy Mama

I really wanted to do a blog post about the HARDEST, but hey, we are all so negative. I thought I would try a positive thing for a change.

1. Giving up traditional noodles for Dreamfields, Zoodles, or Spaghetti Squash.  It was an easy switch. I don't feel deprived with those alternatives.

2. Greek Yogurt instead of traditional yogurt.  I actually prefer it.

3. Collagen and gelatin helped my nails and hair grow so fast.  I have also have more hair! Can't complain with that.  I make Superfood chews quite often to make sure I get those in weekly. Such a difference and its so easy.

4. Meal Prep. I did OAMC before, but now I do meal prep every week. Includes dessert and snacks to help me stay on plan.  I never thought to meal prep until my sister did it. I also plan breakfasts so its much easier to grab and go in the morning.

5. I think about food in a healthier way automatically.  I know to build a meal around protein and add as many veggies as I can.  THM opened a whole knew world of vegetables I had not even eaten before Okra is the biggest one.

So what are the top 5 things for you?  Leave them in the comments below!
