Trim Healthy Mama Friendly Menu Plan

Are you a Trim Healthy Mama or thinking about starting the plan? We know how daunting it can be to plan the menus week after week!

As great THM is, it can be overwhelming just to figure out what's on plan and what's not and putting together an entire menu can be difficult and time consuming.

There's hope though! It doesn't have to be overwhelming. We've taken all the guess work out of putting a THM Friendly menu together and have made it incredibly easy to plan a complete menu, including printing off a shopping list in just a matter of minutes!

One thing we want you to know is that every recipe on our Trim Healthy Mama Friendly menu is reviewed by one our staff members who is very familiar with how Trim Healthy Mama works and our recipes will be on plan. You can count on Build a Menu to provide you with fantastic S, E and FP compatible recipes each and every week.




What else should you know about our recipes?

The THM diet includes quite a few ingredients we consider "staples." We are committed to offering recipes that are budget friendly and don't require expensive ingredients However, we assume that if you're following the THM way of eating, you'll be familiar with most of the staple ingredients in the recipes we offer. You can see all the ingredients needed in each recipe as you're building your menu, as well as on your customized grocery shopping list. Be sure to check it before you head to the store! Examples of staples are ingredients such as spices, seasonings and items that come in packages that have many servings (i.e. almond flour, ground flax seed, etc.)
