September Trim Healthy Mama Menu

It is back to school for many of us. Life starts to get busy and weeknight dinners are harder to get on the table. I tried to find recipes for the trim healthy mama menu to be quick recipes or recipes that use the crockpot or instant pot. You can do some prep work over the weekend to help make dinners easy. Here are some ideas for you: prep the pizza casserole- make the crust and then top the crust with the layers and store in the fridge. Heat up on the night you want to eat it. Precook hamburger meat, dump ingredients into baggies, like the cilantro lime chicken. Chop veggies for your salads or other meals, make the burger bowl sauce ahead. If you look at the menu for the week ahead, see what you can prep ahead to your busy weeknights easier.

Every Monday is a crockpot recipe. I like to prep these meals and actually store the meal in the crock, in the fridge and then put in the base Monday morning. Tuesdays are all some sort of Mexican meal in honor of taco Tuesday. Every Friday is a grill recipe. A few of the meals are listed as any when I show what fuel it is. You can decide if you want to make it an s, e, or fp. Whatever you want to make it. Many are the Mexican meals. You can serve those with salsa, non-fat Greek yogurt, cilantro, green onions, light laughing cow cheese to keep it in the E or FP mode.

I like to eat leftovers on Saturdays and we eat out on Sunday’s. I am searching for really simple and cheap recipes to put in the crockpot on Sunday morning and have for dinner that night. The less work I have to do for Sunday, helps me free up my time to prep for the week. I hope this trim healthy mama menu for September at least gives you some ideas. If you have any questions or thoughts, feel free to send me a message. Here’s to a smooth and easy back to school season.
