Happy New Year! I know that getting healthy for 2020 is on the mind of so many of you as we start off the new year.
Whether you are getting back on the THM plan, starting out as brand new Trim Healthy Mama or just continuing to chug along on your THM journey, I want to encourage you! Yes starting a healthier lifestyle at the beginning of the year is a bit of a common goal, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it.
I personally think that setting goals at the beginning of the year is a great motivator. It is a new year. A fresh start.
If you are new to the Protecting Your Pennies blog, I focus a lot on easy and simple THM meals. Typically my meals are free of most special ingredients and will make it to your table in just a few minutes. I did start a new project to cook through the entire THM cookbook this year, so you may see a few more special ingredients than you are used to.
And if you are new, please be sure to follow on social media before you start the Trim Healthy Mama weekly meal plan for 12/29/19-1/4/20 so that you can keep up with new recipes and ideas!

Trim Healthy Mama Weekly Meal Plan 12/29/19-1/4/20
You will see that I had more S Helpers and XO’s than I usually do on meal plans. I’m happy to report that I still lost a small amount of weight and enjoyed my meals this week. And even better, my husband asked me yesterday if I had lost weight! I always value someone noticing much more than a lb or two lost on the scale!
Breakfast: 2% Cottage Cheese & Pear Bowl – THM E
This sounds kind of weird but with a fresh pear, it is so good! Try these other Cottage Cheese Bowl ideas for a super easy, no cook breakfast.
Lunch: Sprouted Sandwich Carrots and Cutie Orange – THM E
Dinner: Lentil Soup (THC, Pg 89) – THM E
A meal made in the Cooking through the THM cookbook in one year series! Be sure to follow along on this fun adventure.
Breakfast: Avocado Toast with Side of Cottage Cheese – S Helper
*Did you know you can have one slice of bread with your S meal and it is an S Helper not a XO (kind of an in between).
Lunch: Leftover Lentil Soup – THM S
Dinner: Cheeseburger Pie – THM S (Part of the Cooking Through THM Cookbook Series)
Breakfast: Sprouted toast, natural Peanut butter and 1/2 banana – THM XO
This is a XO because of fat in the PB and carbs in the banana and bread. Remember that XO’s are not bad and they are on plan! Just not as conducive to weight loss but I have found that one every now and then does not derail even my weight loss goals.
Lunch: Leftover Cheeseburger Pie and Green Beans – THM S
Dinner: Delivery Chicken Wings (Pizza for the Kids) – Personal Choice S
It was new years so my Dad/Stepmom ordered in while they were here. No picture because I forgot! I call the wings a personal choice because I’m not sure if they use anything off plan in the prep but I know they are better than eating 4 pieces of deep dish!
You could also scrape the toppings off a slice or 2 and eat it plain or on top of a salad. Or throw the toppings on a 1/2 piece of Lavash bread.
Wednesday (Happy New Year!)
Breakfast: Sausage, Bacon, Scrambled Eggs and Yogurt with Berries – THM S
Look at this family platter of deliciousness.
Lunch: Snack Lunch – Prosciutto wrapped cheese, pepperoni and mixed nuts – THM S
Dinner: Black Bean Tacos (E)
Photo reused from a previous post since I forgot to take one. We seriously eat this recipe all the time. It is one of my go to “I didn’t plan dinner” meals because we always have the few ingredients it requires and it comes together in just a couple minutes.
Breakfast: Lunch Meat, Light String Cheese, 2 % Cottage Cheese and Cherry Tomatoes – FP
Breakfast doesn’t have to be fancy!
Lunch: Tuna with Wasa – THM E
Picture reused from previous week. I was obviously horrible with pictures this week!
Spread some cheese on your cracker, top with salmon and then pickle slices.
Dinner: Cashew Chicken with Veggies and Cauli Rice – THM S (From Cooking Through The THM Cookbook Series)
*Don’t use as many or any of the mini corn cobs. My frozen blend had them.
Breakfast: Sprouted Toast (1 Slice), Scrambled eggs and Bacon – THM S Helper
Lunch: Leftover Cashew Chicken – THM S
Dinner: Lavash Lasagna Cupcakes – THM S
Breakfast: I skipped Breakfast. Ahh, not good I know. But it was take down the Christmas tree and clean morning and I just missed it.
Lunch: Leftover Lasagna Cupcakes – THM S
Dinner: Grilled Pork Chop, small portion of black eyed peas and Halo Top Vanilla Ice Cream with Natural PB squeezed on top – THM S
