THM Menu #1

Sunday:

  • Breakfast: Protein Pancakes, Whipped Cream and Berry Sauce (handful frozen strawberries, blueberries and some water blended with 1/2 packet Truvia. Heat it up) *Review- so good. My kids never even realized they weren’t normal pancakes. This will be our go-to pancake recipe now.

  • Snack: Fage greek yogurt, berry sauce, 1/2 packet Stevia *Review- as good or better as blended fruit yogurt from the store, with no chemicals and sugar.
  • Dinner: Oven Roasted Chicken Shawarma. *Review- Insanely good.

Monday:

  • Breakfast: (E) Cottage Blueberry Porridge (THM book, page 230) *Review- Surprisingly tolerable. I’d eat this a few times a week. I made it with leftover oatmeal that I warmed up and it was fine.
  • Lunch: (S) Crispy Salmon (THM book, pg. 282) and salad with avocado, walnuts and ranch dressing. (THM Book pg. 283)

    • E: Brown rice, greek yogurt, tomato
    • S:Cheese, olives, sour cream, lettuce

Notes: For the dinners, I got inspired by this post. Since I’m just starting on the THM program, it is overwhelming and I feel like I need some guidance on the menu planning side of things. So I’ve added the dinners she suggested into the menu above. For the rest I’ve used recipes from the THM book.

I’ve never kept this website for anyone but myself and my husband, so we will know what we are eating every night for dinner. I don’t expect that anyone will visit it, but if you have somehow happened upon it, please feel free to tell me anything about the THM diet that you feel I need to know.

Note:  It’s January. Trying to get back into the swing of school and work.

The perfect grilled steak is excellent and very easy. In the winter it seemed like it needed about 10 minutes on the grill.

The Prosciutto Soup was a real shocker to me. I couldn’t believe the kids ate it and asked for more.

The Pork with Applesauce takes a solid hour to fix. Make sure you have that kind of time when you start.

The Applesauce recipe is SO easy! Make some for the kids, and then use the leftovers for the pork tenderloin recipe.

** With Prosciutto Soup

*** with Little Green Pouch of smoothie instead of smoothie pop, blueberry muffin
