Trim Healthy Mama Meal Prep
I was planning to meal prep a few things to make my week easier. Here are the things that I was hoping to get done during my 1 hour meal prep.
- Make baked oatmeal (will eat this throughout the week for breakfast or even a snack)
- Make sausage crumbles for the microwave egg scrambles
- Boil Eggs
- Cook & Shred Chicken thighs
- Chop Turkey ham for ham and beans.
- Wash fresh fruit and veggies and prep in ready to go containers
Since I was also in charge of keeping my 11 month out of trouble and entertaining 747 questions from my 4 year old, getting snacks and a bottle, I didn’t quite get everything accomplished that I was hoping for.
I missed making the sausage crumbles, boiling eggs and chopping the turkey ham. Geez, I was only at 50%. I did also get our dinner made in that 1 hour prep, so it wasn’t a complete miss.

What I Ate for A Week on Trim Healthy Mama
Here is everything that I ate for a week. There are lots of pictures and I included recipes where I could. Seeing pictures and other trim healthy mama meal plans helps me to stay on plan and get new ideas so I hope this helps you too!
I aim to keep Trim Healthy Mama ultra simple. Complicated recipes and special ingredients do not often make it to my table. The only thing remotely “special” that I frequently use are the Mission low carb tortillas and Dreamfields pasta. Those are usually in my pantry but they are easy to find at my Walmart and reasonably priced.
Breakfast: Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Copycat (would typically add some berries with this but I am a mom on the go and the clock said it was time for school so I missed that) (S)
I think this is such a pretty little cup of eggs. I hardly believe it came out of the microwave in less than 2 minutes!
Lunch: Turkey and cream cheese pinwheels, pork rinds, mini bell peppers, 4 oz blackberries (S)
I don’t have a recipe for the pinwheels but they are super simple. Spread a little softened cream on the Mission Low Carb tortilla, spread on some spicy mustard on top of the cream cheese. Add some deli meat and shredded cheese. Roll the tortilla up and place in the fridge for 10 or 15 minutes to help set it up. 30 minutes is probably best but I can’t ever wait that long! Slice them up with a sharp knife. I love these for a quick lunch.
Snack: string cheese and 2 oz of nuts (S)
Dinner: Hummus crusted baked chicken with roasted carrots, bell peppers and green beans (E or XO) I am calling it an E because I only used about a tablespoon of hummus. Hummus is a crossover typically because of the oil and beans mix the fuels. However, since my meal was very low fat otherwise, I call it an E (carrots and my dessert give me the carbs to make it an E). Just be aware if you are using a lot of hummus or have other fats in your meal that you may go into XO territory which is still on plan but not as good for weight loss.
Dessert: Baked oatmeal with non-fat greek yogurt (E)
Evening Snack: Baked Tortilla chips and Salsa (E) I don’t usually eat after dinner but I was really hungry. Possibly because this was my first full day back on THM and I had gotten used to eating a sugar filled dessert after dinner? Habits are hard to break.
Breakfast: Baked Oatmeal (E), topped with nonfat greek yogurt
Lunch: Cold Cut Roll Up Salad (S), Ranch Dressing
Dinner: Easy 15 Minute Turkey Ham & Beans (E) – I know everyone gets scared when you start talking about E meals. My whole family gobbles this meal up with no complaints and it is literally quicker than strapping my kids in car seats and driving to a fast food drive thru.
Seriously, add this to your trim healthy mama weekly meal plan now!
Snack: Nuts,String Cheese (S)
Breakfast: Sprouted Toast, Small amount of greek yogurt cream cheese, All Fruit Polaner’s Jelly and a side of plain greek yogurt with a tiny bit of polaner’s mixed in (about 1/2 teaspoon). (E)
Please excuse the lighting on this photo. I was up early, working on the computer and eating breakfast. That is what us working mamas do! Am I right?
Lunch: Salsa Verde Chicken Mini Pepper Nachos (S)
My most popular recipe on this site is the 30 minute Cheesy Salsa Verde Chicken with Cauli Rice. I took the filling from this recipe and stuffed it in a pepper for lunch. Delish. Here is the recipe for the Salsa Verde Chicken Pepper Nachos.
Dinner: Grilled Pork Chop, Mac and Cheese Zoodles and Spinach salad (S)
Ya’ll – we eat this cheesy zucchini at least twice a week. And that is saying something because I am not huge on repeating recipes.
It is a macaroni and cheese sub for me. It is so cheesy and rich, it goes great with grilled chicken, pork or steak.
Breakfast: Breakfast Taco and strawberries (S)
After living in Texas for 5 years, I learned breakfast tacos are life! I made this one on a Mission Low carb tortilla. It’s so good and it is something you can roll up and eat in the car on the way to work.
Lunch: Loaded Tuna Salad on Sprouted Bread (E) with a small apple and raw veggies. You won’t miss the mayo in this quick and easy tuna salad recipe packed with protein!
Dinner: Spaghetti with ground beef meat sauce on Dreamfields pasta, Salad with ranch (S)
Dreamfields pasta is a personal choice item but my body does fine with it so I use it. I can usually find it at Walmart for less than $2. My kids adore spaghetti and the texture of this pasta is really similar to regular pasta. In fact, I can’t tell a difference at all. Spaghetti on a “diet” – Yes please!
Breakfast: Leftover baked Oatmeal with Greek Yogurt (E)
Lunch: Chicken & Cheese quesadilla on a Mission Low Carb tortilla with pork rinds and raw veggies (not pictured) (S)
Dinner: Cheesy zucchini with Ham (S)
Told you that we love this zucchini at my house. Here I just made the cheesy zucchini and added some ham that was lightly browned in a skillet. It is grown up Mac n cheese with hotdogs (don’t judge!). So good and it takes less than 30 minutes to get this on the table.
Breakfast: Easy 2 Minute Microwave Eggs I usually eat the same thing for breakfast a couple of times during the week. It doesn’t bother me and makes planning easier.
Lunch: Baby Spinach, Cheese Cubes, Steak and Ranch (S)
My husband brought home some leftover steak. A delicious yet simple steak salad was calling my name.
Dinner: Sausage, fried radishes and green beans (S)
No Trim Healthy Mama weekly meal plan would be complete without some weird ingredient would it? I don’t know about you but radishes were not on my list of things that I would eat before THM. I finally got brave enough to try them and you know what? They aren’t half bad.
I don’t usually make different meals for my family but my kids aren’t eating radishes. I can promise it. So I made them sausage and potatoes and I subbed radishes for mine. Now let me tell you the truth. You are not going to bite into it and think yum a potato. But if you go into it with an open mind to try a new veggie, I think you might just like it. I did.
Breakfast: Ham slices, scrambled eggs and berries (S)
Lunch: Sprouted Sandwich, carrots, apples and a small amount of ranch (E)
Dinner: Grilled pork chop, Wedge salad and Fried cabbage (S)
I hope you enjoyed this Trim Healthy Mama Weekly Meal Plan. I will continue to periodically post what I eat over the course of a week to try and give you ideas! THM really doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. If you have any questions, leave me a comment.
