Menu Plan Monday - THM Style

Here's my THM-friendly menu plan for this week. Some of the recipes might need to be changed slightly to keep it on plan but most will work:

Sunday: Moroccan lentil soup & artisan bread (E) for lunch
           : Visiting parents for supper. I went off plan a little bit here...had ham & veggies with sour cream for an S meal  (I skipped the crescent rolls & mashed potatoes). Had 2-3 tablespoons of real fruit ice cream for dessert (this is where I cheated a bit) and a handful of popcorn seasoned with coconut oil & nutritional yeast. Also had some of my skinny chocolate and a zevia drink.

Monday: Three Bean Chicken Chili (E) (limited toppings for me to keep it in the E catergory...)

Tuesday: Chicken tikka masala, basmati rice (cauliflower "rice" for me), veggies (S)

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Spaghetti & meat sauce (spaghetti squash for me instead of noodles), Caesar Salad (no croutons)  (S)

Friday: Parmesan tilapia, steamed veggies with butter, salad (S) & mashed potatoes for rest of family

Saturday: Leftovers

Alternative Meals: Taco Salad (S- no taco chips for me)

Breakfasts: The usual for the kiddos & hubby (toast, yogurt, fruit). Ideas for me...steel cut oats with maple syrup (E), Greek yogurt & strawberries (FP), spinach & feta omelet (S) in my Tupperware breakfast maker.

Lunches: For the kids: Homemade mac n' cheese (with tomatoes), grilled cheese sandwiches with veggies & dip, snack tray lunch (crackers, cheese, pickles, meat, fruit & veggies), THM pancakes or crepes with toppings. For me...various salads (E or S, depending on dressing & toppings), leftovers, quinoa & leftover chicken & balsamic roasted veggies (E), THM friendly pancakes or crepes.
