Millie's Menu January 22, 2018 THM traveling menu

I’ve dubbed this my traveling menu. 🙂

Last night, I arrived in Oregon for work. I’m here until I fly home Thursday afternoon. I’m staying at my bosses house in their (very nice) guest room. I’ve stayed with them a few times before and it’s always fun. I join them for their family dinner and have breakfast and lunch on my own at the office. I stopped yesterday at the store to pick up a few things and brought a couple of things with me.

Here’s what I brought from home:

Here’s what I picked up at the store:

  • 0% Greek yogurt — plain
  • Full fat Greek yogurt — plain
  • Container of raspberries
  • 1 apple
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Salad greens
  • Smoked salmon (lox)
  • Tuna
  • Hormel Naturals chicken
  • almonds

I’ll do my best to stay on Trim Healthy Mama during my trip but won’t worry too much about going off plan. Thursday evening, my dinner will be at an airport. I’ve been to this airport many times and know of a couple of decent restaurants I can order meals at that will be THM friendly. I’ll be home around 1 am Friday morning so Friday will be back to “normal.”

You’ll see letters after our meals. These are references to Trim Healthy Mama meals which is a huge help in balancing my hormones and working on the middle age spread that has hit both Joe and me.

Note: THM separates fuels so we don’t eat carbs (E meals) with fats (S meals). Our son doesn’t need to lose weight or balance his hormones. While he eats the same meals as we do his become Crossover (XO) meals by adding additional healthy fats to E meals and helpful carbs to S meals.
