Millie's Menu March 12, 2018 | Trim Healthy Mama Purist Menu

Happy Monday!

It’s an exciting day here on the farm! Today my pantry is being installed. We’ve been living in our unfinished cabin for over two years now. We’ve done most of the finished work on our own but recently decided to hire out some of the things. Truthfully, we’ve stalled on our progress. With both of us working full time jobs plus a part time job finding the time, and desire, to work on the house has been a challenge. The last several months we’ve been choosing to play on the weekends instead of doing construction. Hiring out some of the jobs started making sense. And when we heard a neighbor might be looking for work it all came together. I can’t wait to share the before and after photos with you!

Since the first of the year Joe and I have been using the Trim Healthy Mama plan. Both of us needed to stop our middle aged spread and I need a little help with balancing my hormones. THM is known to help for both. We don’t own a scale so can’t say what weight we’ve lost but both of us notice our clothes fitting better. And we’re both feeling better. While we try to stay on plan, we’re not dogmatic about it and would probably see quicker results if we’d stick with it better. That said, what we’re doing is working well for us. Neither of us feel like we are dieting. THM is definitely a good plan to not feel deprivation. And the guilt I often feel when “dieting” isn’t there. On this menu, you’ll see letters after the meals. These are references to Trim Healthy Mama meals.

Our schedule; Monday through Friday my husband works a split shift. He works several hours early morning then comes home for breakfast about 8:45. He leaves again around 11 am and returns at the end of his day around 5:30. We have breakfast together, our son and I eat a light lunch early afternoon, and we all enjoy dinner together. Joe takes snack foods for lunch such as boiled eggs, cheese, cooked meats.

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.
