My Weekly Meal Plan!

**This blog post contains affiliate links, thank you for your purchases that help support my blog!**

There are times when I find myself so far from where I started I need to take a walk back in time, revisit the place where I started. So, I am shaking things up!! I am returning to some simplicity in the plan. I easily get caught up in all the fun and specialty things, that I forget the delicious simplicity of some of the basics of the plan.

This week is weigh in week as well for the Accountability Group - so I am also giving myself a little boost with some of the foods that originally helped me reach my goal weight!

As always, my meal plan is egg, almond, peanut, sunflower seed and wheat free. I truly hope you find this helpful to your journey!


Chicken breakfast sausage scramble with non starchy veggies, with Trimmy (3 times)
Oat Pancakes, slim belly jelly, FP Trimmy (2 times)
FSF or Big Boy Smoothie (2 times)


Large green salad with tuna (or other meat) EVOO/ACV dressing, skinny chocolate (3 times)
Loaded Fotato Soup with smoked salmon (twice)
Brown Rice cakes with lean deli meat, pickles, mustard, baby frap (twice)


Chicken Pizza with side salad, EVOO/ACV dressing
Taco Salad
Chicken in crockpot with broccoli and cauliflower
Salmon over a bed of greens
Cowboy Grub with peas & carrots on the side
Chicken Fajitas bowl over spanish cauli rice
Chana Dahl soup in the crockpot and side salads


I am trying to go a little lighter here, I enjoy those lovely fats, but trying to boost things a little with lighter foods closer to bedtime

Cookie Bowl Oatmeal with berries (twice)
Skinny Chocolate (twice)
Hot Cocoa trimmy with cinnamon "toast" (twice)
I have one night undecided.....

What do you all use for salad dressings? I almost never buy a premade dressing, between food sensitivities and on plan ingredients, I find myself struggling. I think this looks like a great gadget to help me make more dressings! Do you have anything like this? Do you like it?


I hope you all have a wonderful week!!

***GIVEAWAY!!!*** THM Plan Book & Cook Book!!!

LADIES! I am so excited to have the opportunity to offer this amazing giveaway! This plan has literally changed my life and I am so blessed to be able to share it with others through my blog, through local meetings and now one lady who has not been able to purchase the books yet will have the opportunity to win the set and learn all about this amazing plan!

This may be a bit backwards, but I want to start my thoughts about this set with the cookbook!! This book is AMAZING!! It has many wonderful allergy friendly recipes as well! For the recipes that contain egg, I am slowly working through and trying my best to recreate them for all of us egg free families. You can find that post HERE.  There are wonderful dairy subs in here as well! Collagen berry whip, hello cheese and laughing mama to name a few of the new dairy free options! The dinner recipes have been wonderful and my family is LOVING them!

One of my favorite sections is the drinks! There is chocolate milk, strawberry milk as well as many others! All wonderful and help curb my sweet tooth and keep me focused, satisfied and successful!

They have categorized the recipes for fuel types, allergens and even those that require no special ingredients! This book has been an amazing resource!

The plan book is a must have, I will be honest though, I LOVE the casual, fun style of the first book. However, I know for many it was too much, I truly believe for those of you this will be a much better option. It's concise and gets you to the heart of the plan much quicker. Truly, it's wonderful. The sisters have done an amazing job working to adapt to the requests of their customers. How amazing is that? How often have you heard of authors that listen so closely that they work this hard to bring out what their customers want? I am just so blessed to be affiliated with THM, in my blog and my store. Truly a gift.

Enchilasagna Casserole with Spanish Cauli Rice - Delicioso! S meal

***This post contains affiliate links.Thank you for shopping through them and supporting my little blog!**

Oh, this was REALLY good. Mexican food is a favorite around my home, we could eat tacos every day I think. We also love enchiladas and this little idea has been rolling around my brain for some time now. I decided tonight was the nigh to try it out and this dish received rave reviews from the family! This is an S meal on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, it is also a very low carb meal for those following a low carb diet. 
Here's my little trick, to keep this dish low in carbs and stay in S territory, I used thicker sliced deli meat in place of my tortillas. I chose a simple chicken breast variety and asked the lady at the counter to cut it about the thickness of a tortilla. :) 

I took a little shot of my daughters piece, she cannot have much dairy, so this is one piece that I only used a sprinkle of cheese on...it still looks yummy, even if you have to have this dairy free!

The completed Enchilasagna!! 

If this were an action shot, you would see the sauce bubbling in the dish...the fragrance was fantastic!

Because I MUST have spanish rice - AKA Mexican rice. I adapted a favorite recipe and it worked out amazingly well!!


You will need one batch of my enchilada sauce found here in my Chicken Enchilada Casserole. I subbed 1/2-1 teaspoon of gluccie for the brown rice flour to keep this in S territory.

1 pound sliced lean deli meat of choice (about the thickness of tortillas)
1+ pounds of ground beef cooked with 1/2 cup of chopped onions
1 small can black olives
2 cups shredded cheese of choice - or leave off for dairy free

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Assemble your enchilasagna!

In a 9x13 baking dish layer in 4 slices of your deli meat so it covers the bottom like pictured above. Spread some of the enchilada sauce over the meat.
Layer in half of the ground beef and olives.
Layer on 4 slices of lean deli meat and cover with enchilada sauce.
Layer in the other half of the ground beef and olives.
Top with 4 more slices of lean deli meat.
Cover with the remaining enchilada sauce.
Sprinkle cheese over the top of everything.

Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Spanish Cauli Rice:

1 - 12 oz bag of cauli rice (or approx 3 cups of riced cauliflower)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup of diced onions
2 chopped garlic cloves
salt and pepper to taste
refined coconut oil for sauteeing

Saute onion and garlic for a couple of minutes over medium. Add in the cauli and chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until cauli is done and the liquid has evaporated. Done!
