Last week our menu took on a little twist. We follow the guidelines of Trim Healthy Mama developed by Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison and we encourage you to check out their website, books and various social media platforms. Not to be outdone by her sister, here is last week’s menu from our 7 year old. The week before, our oldest had request to create the menu so this last week, our middle girl wanted to give it a try. Read to see what she requested:
Monday: Spaghetti (FP) with ground turkey, Dreamfield Pasta for the kids and Spaghetti Squash for the adults.
Tuesday: Tacos (E) with low carb tortillas, beans, and low fast cheese
Wednesday: Quiche (S) with eggs, cheese, bacon and peppers. I also created a fun crust from riced cauliflower, cream cheese and baking blend. I’ll post the recipe soon once it’s perfected.
Thursday: Chicken Thighs- Baked (FP) with
Friday: Low Carb Pizza, (c/o) crust made with Cheese bread sticks on page 310of the book Trim Healthy Table.
